iPhone 6 4.7″ and 5.5″ display May production tipped

Two sizes of display for Apple's iPhone 6 are tipped to go into mass production from May, insiders in the company's supply chain claim, with first a 4.7-inch and then a 5.5-inch touchscreen on the cards for the next-gen handset. Chatter of an increase in screen size from the 4-inch panel used on the iPhone 5s has circulated some time, with Apple said to be weighing the competitive benefits of challenging larger Android devices against its preference for smaller phones that can be more readily used single-handed.

Foxconn wearable incubator tipped to find the next Glass

Foxconn wearable incubator tipped to find the next Glass

Foxconn, perhaps best known as Apple's manufacturing partner of iPhones, iPads, and Macs, is making a push into wearables with a new investment fund for innovative startups in the segment, it's reported, with business said to kick off in early 2014. The financing scheme will begin selecting potential candidates in the first quarter of the new year, two sources tell Bloomberg, though operations won't supposedly get their own dedicated premises until Q4. Foxconn demonstrated a smartwatch prototype of its own earlier in 2013, though the incubator will be intended to facilitate third-party projects.

Because of the criticism, the Chinese manufacturer - which supplies some Apple devices, among others - agreed to over 300 terms set forth by Apple after a Fair Labor Association investigation. While some things have changed, the latest report shows that employees are still being overworked.

An Apple Television? Find it in the storeroom by the netbook prototypes

Apple is trialling yet more televisions, if you believe the chunnering from the supply chain, and - so eager analysts would have us believe - is one step closer to taking over your living room. Whispers of new test hardware using big Sharp LCDs and Foxconn's production skills come on the heels of research suggesting a fair number of consumers are desperate to throw more money at their Cupertino addiction, as well as CEO Tim Cook's tongue-in-cheek "it's an area of intense interest" comments last week. Yet in reality, despite the hype, little has actually changed from the last batch of rumors, and we're no closer to chucking out our BRAVIA for a Siri-controlled set.

150,000 iPhone 5 a day as Apple ramps for launch

With the launch of the iPhone 5 expected to be a matter of weeks away, it's hardly a surprise that Apple's production partners should be beavering away at building the fifth-gen iOS smartphone.

64GB iPhone 4 prototype caught on video

A 64GB iPhone 4 prototype has apparently been spotted in Hong Kong, suggesting Apple is at least considering - or has considered - versions of the fourth-gen smartphone with greater capacity.

Steve Jobs at D8: Flash, the iPhone HD, and Everything Else

The Wall Street Journal's annual "All Things D" conference kicked off tonight, and it started off with a presence that's all too familiar in the technology industry. A presence that actually hasn't made an appearance in a few years. And, above all, a presence that's a welcomed entity on any stage, in any location. Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, sat on the D8 stage tonight with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, talking about everything that involves Apple. Of course, they took the time to talk about everything else, too; including Adobe, the next iPhone, casual gaming, and even security and the App Store. After the break, take in the comprehensive coverage, from start to finish, noting all the important parts.
