  • Report: New Apple Products/Updates Ahead

    On Monday, DigiTimes presented a substantive list of new Apple products and updates that, according to parts suppliers, could roll out in the coming months from the Cupertino-based tech giant. Based on the information gleaned from those in the know, the aforementioned list will likely include the following:
    • An upgraded 9.7-inch iPad with a new ARM Cortex-A9-based processor and 512MB RAM.
    • A 7-inch iPad using the Cortex-A9 processor and an IPS panel with a resolution of 1024768.
    • A new Apple TV using AMD's Fusion solution (no hard drive).
    • A CDMA iPhone derived from metal materials with an integrated antenna.
    Assuming all of the above will actually materialize, it could be the new Apple TV that consumers will first have access to - possibly before the holiday shopping season begins in full. According to the report from Digitimes, the refreshed Apple TV will present a user interface similar to the iPhone "with support for social networking websites, network multimedia and the App Store." Mass production of the device will likely begin in a few months.

    As we reported late last week, all signs also point to a looming iPod refresh - an update that come possibly be revealed as early as next week. Initially, the iPod refresh was expected to take place in September.

      though i already have a unlocked iphone in my T-Mobile network... it'd be great if i didnt have to unlock it and it was already in T Mobile.
      iPhone should be allowed for more than just 1 network, just saying.

      So this is a rumor. Not a report?

      When will they make you put a giant "RUMOR:" at the front of your article headlines? It's annoying to see the tweet of an article only to follow the link and find it's another Messany crapdog.

      what r u talking about "google and verizon merging"? The FCC proposal about net neutrality? Please don't spread rumors like this unless u know something the rest of the world doesn't! And even if so, it will NEVER be in googles interest to remove it from the iPhone.

      Um. A retina display on an iPad would be completely useless. It'd be nice to have upped quality and sharper image, but the retina display is mostly due to the fact that you hold your iPhone (most of the time) one foot from your face.

      It probably is possible, but with a very large price tag. And think of the strain it would put on a present processor/battery/RAM (but not really RAM cause they are upgrading that). The strain it would cause to display such a large resolution would definitely require an upgrade on CPU, GPU, and battery. And definitely with new cooling methods factored in, cause it is going to get hot at that size.

      Think about it. I'm not sure of the SPECIFIC numbers, but with a retina display on an iPad, you'd be pumping out higher resolutions than most high end computers get.
      An up in the resolution numbers would be reasonable and pretty great.

      I'm sorry I"m just tired of reading posts with like fanatical predictions. Like 5mp back camera with front, with gyroscope, while upgrading the RAM/processor/GPU/case/screen/home button, making it lighter and able to double as a toaster.

      Higher resolution, improved RAM/CPU, camera. Possibly gyroscope? Dunno.
      But that seems most logical, to me at least.

      I'm sure VZW will get the iPhone, just not the CDMA version. It'll be LTE when it finally arrives.
      Completely agree with you man. What a waste of valuable time and money on Apple's end...

      "Verizon is moving towards LTE very shortly, so lets build a CDMA iPhone"

      also, the new MacBook will be shipped with a 16x CD-ROM drive

      As for a Mini iPad I don't know.
      CDMA Phone, Might actually be true this time because Google is thinking of merging with Verizon , so that would mean no more Google on the iPhone.
      WTF are you talking about? Merging with Verizon? Verizon is a 51/49 company in conjunction with Vodafone. They aren't merging, they are working together against AT&T and Apple in the US, nowhere else in the world is this happening, as the US is the only country with single carrier exclusivity.

      I am waiting on a new AppleTV. Hopefully it will actually be able to handle real HD.

      i'm waiting on the ipod touch refresh and possibly iPad. I will only buy the new touch if it's over 100GB and has the front facing camera and the iPad if it has front facing camera. I've been holding off awaiting those 2 minute features. We'll just have to wait and see.

      100+GB!? You do know that the chips Apple uses to make iPod touches and iPhone only comes in up to 32GB

      if they were having problems with it from the start, why did they announce that it would be available june 24th???

      back on subject:

      another size ipad might be nice....
      Unforseen problem. Do you need a dictionary to look up "unforseen"?
