iPhone 6 for Christmas? You and 56.7m others says analyst

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales will spike dramatically to more than 56.7m units, one analyst has predicted, though there may be a post-New-Year hangover in early 2015 when demand drops considerably. Apple's smaller of the two flagship smartphones will lead the charge, KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo suggests in a recently issued report to investors, expected to amount to almost 60-percent of all iPhone sales in Q4 2014 and help drive a quarter-on-quarter increase of 82-percent.

Apple Watch doubted like iPhone: launch may be massive

Apple to allow OEMs to use Lightning ports in 2015

Apple’s proprietary Lightning port might soon be a bit more open for use. Though many companies produce Lightning cables, none can make or implement an actual Lightning port. At the Made for iPhone (MFi) summit in China this week, word that Apple is set to allow more companies to use the Lightning port is trickling out. Of course, Apple won’t be letting just anyone use Lightning; the company and product have to meet rigorous MFi standards, and use Lightning as Apple intended.
