bigger screen better

I think a larger display as compared to iPhone 5 was very much needed to compete with Samsung and others and it is good to see that might come with iPhone 6. What would be a approximate price of iPhone 6?

In the past Apple has always kept the same price on the new models and discounted the old ones, but with the higher BOM on this one its anyone's guess what their pricing strategy will be.

Very Nice Changes from Apple

These are very nice and most awaited for Apple Users, Other brands have gone far beyond as compared to Apple Phones in terms of hardware. But at least now Apple uses will be able to used the power of hardware as the new phones will be using A8 processors and 1GB RAM. One can say that now Apple will have to follow other Manufacturers for hardware changes. In case of phablet Apple will be following other manufacturers as Apple is not the first to introduce it.

Yes, it appears Apple is playing catch up ball, but there are also likely to be new features that their followers will consider "must haves."

A 30-50% speed (I assume he means "performance") bump is pretty good. I wonder how much comes from the processor and how much from all the new memory?

@anexanhume on Twitter  says:

"...previous iPhones already had 1GB since 4S. Other rumors seem to be repeats of GeekBar rumors seen on @MacRumors"


Guess we'll see on Sept. 9

Apple is changing the game in the middle because they saw what Samsung did. The problem is that it may destroy their operational efficiency which is another currency in the Apple universe.

Yes, performance is a better word, however speculation has its clock upped to 2.0 GHz over 1.3 GHz today, which would be in the stated speed bump range. The disappointing thing to me is that almost everyone--even supposed TSMC insiders who claim to be making the A8--say it will still be a dual-core, which puts Apple behind again, since quad-cores are in many high-end smartphones from others.

The process do not gives much headroom in our knowledge, the core is just now a LOT wide and with a big L3, so my bet is in a far more aggressive turbo clock speed (2Ghz??) with only a 10% boost in base clock frequence, that is around 0.9Ghz in iPhone 5 and around 1.2Ghz in iPad Air.

The big question is in what this strong turbo will translate in real world performance as the Tskin goes up and the cpu throttles down.

The GPU will be sure faster so likely Apple is referring to an aggregate +30% in performance CPU+GPU.

Only my two cents.....

Much better if Apple can lower their iphone price. Samsung eating them alive nowadays.
