Apple is finally getting set to launch the new iPhone 6 on Tuesday Sept. 9 in probably one of its biggest held events this year.
The company is going to hold a big event in its headquarters in Cupertino, California and have already sent out invitations to journalists, developers and critics.
The event will feature a keynote by Apple, most likely the iPhone 6 announcement. The invitation states "Wish we could say more," as well as the date 9.9.2014. The phrase could mean anything but it could likely mean Apple will also be announcing the iWatch. more >>
Apple will be busy in the coming months, with all the releases lined up for their various product lines; one of which is the new Macbook Air with Retina Display. There is still no established release date but it may come out later this year or early next year.
The new Macbook Air is looking to get a new size variant, a Retina display, as well as the new Intel Broadwell chips.
The current Macbook Air had two versions, an 11-inch and a 13-inch version. While both variants are the same in terms of specs, the 11-inch version was made to be more portable than the 13-inch version. more >>
Apple plans to announce the iPhone 6 on Sept. 9 as well as the new operating system that it will come with. The iOS 8 has been most likely scheduled on Sept. 10, following the trend Apple follows with its Tuesday iPhone releases and its Wednesday iOS updates.
Before the Cupertino company puts out the new iOS 8, there usually precedes a time where the company would release a near-final developer state of the OS. This version has been called the "Gold Master version" and is usually released a week before the operating system's actual release.
With the iOS 8 speculated to come out on Sept. 10, the Gold Master Version is then supposed to come out on Sept. 3. However, there have been no news from various developers about them being notified of an iOS 8 GM version yet. more >>
The iPad is one of Apple's product lines which have gained an enormous popularity since its release in 2010. Since then, the Cupertino company had only needed to build upon that foundation to come up with other variants such as the iPad Air and the iPad Mini.
The challenge that Apple currently faces with its product lines is its continuous ambition to outdo the previous releases. Take for example the iPad with Retina Display or iPad 4th generation in November 2012 and the iPad Air in November 2013.
First off, the display. The iPad 4 comes with and IPS LCD 9.7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 and 264 ppi. The iPad Air on the other hand has the same IPS LCD 9.7-inch touchscreen with the same resolution. Not having an upgraded resolution is a bit of a let down but it might change with the release of the iPad 2. more >>
Sony's PlayStation line had always initially come in black with the exception of the first PlayStation but also offered different colors like red and blue starting with the PlayStation 3. With the upcoming release of Bungie's sci-fi shooter "Destiny," Sony is planning to bundle it together with a white colored PlayStation 4.
When "Destiny" is released on Sept. 9, it will be coming bundled with a white PlayStation 4 and is currently only exclusive in the EU.
Players can still opt to purchase the white PlayStation 4 without the "Destiny" game bundled with it. The standalone white console will be released later this year, however, but it is still uncertain whether it will be coming in other countries. more >>
The third title to the zombie first-person shooter, "Left 4 Dead 3," still has no official release date. It is also difficult to speculate when the actual release date will be since there are no official details on the game yet.
In previous reports, Counter-Strike co-creator Minh Le assured about the title's development and told fans that the game's progress is moving along well. Le no longer works with company Valve but said in an interview that she has seen the game.
"It wouldn't be any news if I said yes, I saw it. It looks great," Le told goRGNtv. more >>
