iRumors: What’s Next From Apple?
I’m still using an iPhone 4, yet I somehow manage to survive, even without Siri. That said, I would be lost without my iPhone and really dig all the products Apple offers, even though I only have an iPhone thus far.
Here are a few of the latest rumors concerning Apple’s possible plans for the rest of 2013 and beyond, courtesy of Fox News. I’m especially intrigued by the iWatch. Which of these will you find yourself “unable to live without?” Let us know on Facebook!
- iPad Mini Retina coming early 2014, iPad 5 comes late 2013: A new report from Citi (via CNET) says that the iPad Mini with a high-resolution ‘Retina’ screen will may come out late this fall, but is likely going to be pushed back to early 2014. Instead, a cheaper iPad Mini (with a standard 1024 x 768 pixel screen) will ship this holiday, priced around $250. They also predict that a thinner full-size iPad 5 model with a slimmer bezel will join the cheaper iPad Mini in late 2013.
- iPhone 6 getting buff for mid 2014 launch: The iPhone 6 may have a larger screen. That, we know, but Citi believes it may launch earlier than the last few iPhones: in early-to-mid 2014.
- iWatch coming this year? If Samsung unveils its smartwatch on Sept. 4, along with the Galaxy Note 3, Apple might do the same. Or perhaps Samsung knows Apple’s plans and is the one reacting. Regardless of the corporate mind games, the iWatch may come this year after all. Again, this is a rumor by Citi.
- iPhone 5C not as cheap as we thought: The iPhone 5C may not be as cheap as the $300 price tag that’s been thrown around in early rumors. Citi believes it may cost $450, or only about $200 cheaper than the iPhone 5S. Kind of lame, Apple! If you’re going to replace the iPhone 5 with a polycarbonate (plastic) new phone, at least give us a bigger discount than that.
