Mostly, though, in not possessing banana thumbs, I liked how the iPhone 4s could be used one-handed, which was convenient when zooming about town or lazing about on the sofa.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/BrHIY1N9yPA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5" alt="Apple iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S5" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone_6_leak_galaxy_s5_white_gsmarena_0.jpg?1408774492" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Eventually, I got my hands on an iPhone 5s, and although I eventually <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/how-iphone-5s-has-made-me-fall-love-iphones-all-over-again/feature" target="_blank">grew fond of it</a>, I&rsquo;ve never gotten over that screen size. Apple at the time released a comical commercial showing how, yes, you could still reach every part of the screen with a thumb.</p> <p>If you had a big enough thumb. And quite large hands. And didn&rsquo;t really care about cramp. But the iPhone 5 form-factor never offered the same level of comfort as its predecessor, even if it did provide a bit more screen real estate.</p> <p>But now the high end of the market &ndash;&nbsp;the profitable bit Apple loves so much &ndash;&nbsp;is galloping towards ever-larger screens, and the iPhone&rsquo;s set to follow.</p> <p>I assume people&rsquo;s infatuation with huge smartphones is driven by wanting just one device to be a computer for everything. And if screens are too small, they&rsquo;re seen as &lsquo;lesser&rsquo; for watching films, playing games and surfing the web. (Actually making a phone call is, according to a fictional survey I just made up, now only the 75th most likely thing people do on a smartphone, sandwiched awkwardly between &lsquo;use that truly hilarious new selfie app that adds a funny hat&rsquo; and &lsquo;actually bother to check into LinkedIn&rsquo;.)</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/O99m7lebirE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="604" height="453" title="Apple iPhone 6l shell" alt="Apple iPhone 6l shell" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone-6l-01.jpg?1408774492" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The thing is, now I&rsquo;m armed with a newborn, I&rsquo;m rediscovering the joy of having a device I can use reasonably well with one hand, given that the other is usually occupied holding said newborn and the copious quantities of milk said newborn is imbibing.</p> <p>Lengthy glugging sessions become twinned with trips to Twitter or far too many games of Threes! I look at mock-ups of the iPhone 6, one at least as large as my unwieldy Nexus, and one that&rsquo;s essentially an iPad mini, and groan about a future that will be just fine, provided I only ever need to reach about 80 per cent of the display.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Apple iPhone 6 render by Martin Hajek (www.martinhajek.com)" alt="Apple iPhone 6 render by Martin Hajek (www.martinhajek.com)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone-6-render-01.jpg?1408774492" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>I wonder what this is all leading to. Will giant iPhones usher in the death of the iPad? Will every iPhone 6 not only come with a USB cable, but also an iThumbStretcher? Will the iPhone 5s be the last great small smartphone, leaving those who prefer that form factor doomed to pick the least awful device from a desperate race to the bottom between Android manufacturers hell-bent on marketshare over profit? Will the iPhone 6L be suitable for sheltering a small family during a torrential downpour, which they might have been able to avoid entirely had they only been able to use a weather app one-handed while walking home?</p> <p>All I know is this is looking to be the first iPhone I won&rsquo;t really want, but I&rsquo;m sure I&rsquo;ll crack at some point and buy one anyway. And with my iPad, I can at least get in some practice as to what using Apple&rsquo;s giant iPhone will be like.</p> <p><em>iPhone 6 renders by Martin Hajek (<a href="http://www.martinhajek.com" target="_blank">www.martinhajek.com</a>)</em></p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iphone-6/review" target="_blank">Apple iPhone 6 preview: everything you need to know</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="940" height="705" title="Apple iPhone 6 render by Martin Hajek (www.martinhajek.com)" alt="Apple iPhone 6 render by Martin Hajek (www.martinhajek.com)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/iphone-6-render-martin-hajek.jpg?1408774492" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/why-i-m-dreading-bigger-iphone-6/feature" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/why-i-m-dreading-bigger-iphone-6/feature#comments Apple iPhone 6 Opinion Smartphones Fri, 22 Aug 2014 15:28:39 +0000 Elissa Loi 1445665 at http://www.stuff.tv 5.5in iPhone 6 shell revealed in new pics http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/55in-iphone-6-shell-revealed-new-pics/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The plus-size iPhone 6 is snapped alongside its smaller cousin in leaked spy shots </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Apple iPhone 6L" alt="Apple iPhone 6L" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/iphone-6l-01.jpg?1408616116" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>We&#39;ve seen a lot of leaks showing off the 4.7in <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iphone-6/review" target="_blank">iPhone 6</a> in recent weeks, as its rumoured 9 September release date draws near.</p> <p>But its bigger cousin &ndash; a 5.5in phablet that purportedly goes by the name &quot;iPhone 6L&quot; &ndash; has proved more elusive.

The iPhone 6 body has leaked countless times over the past year in various forms, and now actual (and apparently genuine) production cases have made their way into the hands of online tech aficionados.</p> <p>The video above, courtesy of YouTube user iCrackUriDevice, shows off one of these rear cases, and it clearly shows off Apple&#39;s new design in all its glory.</p> <p>It&#39;s immediately obvious that the iPhone 6 will likely arrive with a bigger screen. The case is larger than the iPhone 5s, and its thinner, with a much rounder design.</p> <p>One big change is the relocation of the power button from the top to the right hand side, where it will be easily accessible with your thumb, Samsung Galaxy-style.</p> <p>Looking at the rear, the pill-shaped flash cutout has been replaced by a circular one, suggesting that Apple has either ditched its dual two-tone LED flash, or it&#39;s managed to cram both LEDs into a circular space.</p> <p>The volume buttons however, have appeared to do the reverse.

That means that while pretty much every other top of the range smartphone is quad-core, Apple&#39;s apparently happy sticking with dual-core. But that doesn&#39;t mean it&#39;s going to be slow: it may be clocked at 2GHz or more (the iPhone 5s&#39; A7 chip is 1.3GHz) and will be smaller and more efficient than the A7.</p> <p>Another Chinese site,&nbsp;<a href="http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format=go&amp;jsonp=vglnk_jsonp_14037963350866&amp;key=c6684b5502fa2a415a104d824988c196&amp;libId=a128a439-4785-4446-ab8d-554763e073ee&amp;loc=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.macrumors.com%2F2014%2F06%2F26%2F128gb-iphone6-5-5%2F&amp;v=1&amp;out=https%3A%2F%2Ftranslate.google.com%2Ftranslate%3Fsl%3Dauto%26tl%3Den%26js%3Dy%26prev%3D_t%26hl%3Den%26ie%3DUTF-8%26u%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.feng.com%252FiPhone%252Fnews%252F2014-06-26%252FSources_said_5.5_inches_iPhone_6_will_have_128_GB_version_587962.shtml%26edit-text%3D%26act%3Durl&amp;ref=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pocket-lint.com%2Fnews%2F129598-apple-s-5-5-inch-iphone-6-may-get-128gb-and-ois-exclusively&amp;title=Only%20the%205.5-Inch%20iPhone%206%20May%20Offer%20128GB%20Models%20-%20Mac%20Rumors&amp;txt=Google%20Translate" target="_blank">Wei Feng</a>,&nbsp;believes that that larger 5.5in iPhone 6 model will also land with a massive 128GB of internal storage, which should satiate the lust of most diehard media fans.

If you&#39;re worried that this won&#39;t be enough memory for a flagship smartphone (after all, most high-end Android phones sport at least 2GB), consider that iPhones have traditionally always had fairly low levels of RAM and have traditionally always performed exceptionally well, thanks to Apple&#39;s highly optimised operating system. In any case, take this report with a big pinch of salt.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="800" height="600" title="Apple iPhone 6" alt="Apple iPhone 6" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/apple-a7x-processor-mockup_0_0.jpg?1408693430" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="937" height="703" title="Won&#039;t be needing this after all" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sandisk-128gb_0.jpg?1408693430" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-13"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> BIGGER TANK </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The extra space created by the iPhone 6&rsquo;s larger body should result in a bigger battery, which will be a crucial requirement if Apple wants to retain the iPhone 5s&rsquo; battery life despite having a larger, more pixel-packed display.</p> <p>According to&nbsp;<a href="http://appleinsider.com/articles/14/07/15/rumor-apple-solves-alleged-iphone-6-battery-issues-with-new-supplier" target="_blank">AppleInsider</a>, Taiwanese battery maker Simplo Technologies has succeeded where Apple&rsquo;s current battery suppliers Samsung and LG Chemical have failed: It&rsquo;s made batteries thin and flexible enough for the iPhone 6, and the phone is apparently so skinny that it requires a battery less than 2mm thick.

All previous versions of iOS have debuted with a new bit of hardware, and given that we know iOS 8 will be out in the autumn, it stands to reason that it will arrive on the iPhone 6.</p> <p>So what&#39;s new about it? Rather a lot, actually.</p> <p>For starters, iOS 8 will mark a major break with the past for Apple, in that third-party apps will have greater access to the OS&#39; inner workings. You&#39;ll now be able to install third-party widgets into the Notification Centre, add third-party keyboards such as Swype and SwiftKey.</p> <p>Apps will also be able to install extensions within other apps. So, for instance, tapping on an image within Apple&#39;s Photos apps will give you the option to apply filters from other photography apps you may have installed.</p> <p>They&#39;ll even be able to work with Touch ID, so the possibility of paying for an eBay purchase with the tap of a finger is now very real. But, because of the way Apple will still control security, third-party apps won&#39;t themselves have access to your fingerprint or other sensitive info - so you won&#39;t need to worry about your data being stolen.</p> <p>As has long been rumoured, iOS 8 will also see the arrival of a Health app. It&#39;ll work with the new HealthKit tool for devs and will collect data from all of your third-party health and fitness apps, syncing and presenting it all in the one place.</p> <p>Even without any hardware developments, Health could prove a very useful app. Health and fitness trackers are notoriously bad at working well with each other, meaning that you usually have to go into several apps in order to view all of your data. Apple&#39;s solution could put an end to this, and big partners such as Nike are already on board.</p> <p>That said, we wouldn&#39;t be surprised to see Apple include a hardware feature or two to make the most of the new app. The iPhone 5s&#39; M7 motion co-processor is already capable of tracking and analysing movement data, but if the iPhone 6 included a heart-rate monitor such as the one on the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/galaxy-s5/samsung-galaxy-s5/review">Samsung Galaxy S5</a>, that would give it greater powers. Or maybe that&#39;s something that will feature on the fabled&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/apple-iwatch/review">iWatch</a>...</p> <p>Gaming should be big news on the iPhone 6. As well as having a larger, more finger-friendly screen and more powerful processor, it&#39;ll also gain new skills via iOS 8. Apple&#39;s invented a new programming language, called Swift, and a developer tool called Metal, and together they should bring console-quality graphics to the iPhone.</p> <p>At WWDC, Apple showed off a demo of a game called&nbsp;<em>Zen Garden</em>, which looked seriously nice. The App Store is also being reworked to make it easier to find the best games (and apps in general), and we expect big releases to arrive with iOS 8 in the autumn.</p> <p>And then there&#39;s Continuity. That&#39;s Apple&#39;s name for a raft of services which link your iPhone to your iPad and your Mac, so long as it&#39;s running the new&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/apple/mac-os-x-yosemite/review">OS X Yosemite</a>&nbsp;(which will also debut in the autumn). Chief among them is Handoff, which will let you start a task on one device and continue it on another. For instance you could tap out half an email on your iPhone, then stroll over to your Mac and with a single click on the Mail icon, finish it off there.&nbsp;You&#39;ll also be able to pick up phone calls on your Mac using your iPhone&#39;s connection, or create a hot spot with a single click when you don&#39;t have any Wi-Fi.</p> <p>And we could go on: iCloud Drive will bring Dropbox-like document storage and syncing to iOS; Family Sharing will enable you to share iTunes and App Store purchases with up to six family members; HomeKit will let Apple control all of your home-automation gadgets; mail and messaging will get new abilities; Siri will be smarter; Photos will be synced across devices...

According to the&nbsp;<a href="http://stream.wsj.com/story/apples-new-iphone/SS-2-49206/SS-2-585440/" target="_blank">Wall Street Journal</a>, the company has requested its China-based suppliers deliver this amount &ndash; easily the largest initial production run of an iPhone model &ndash; by the end of December.

That&#39;s American-speak for this autumn. So September is still looking likely.</p> <p><strong>Update 06/08/14:</strong>&nbsp;Both the&nbsp;<a href="http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2014/08/05/apple-to-introduce-new-iphones-at-sept-9-event/" target="_blank">Wall Street Journal</a>&nbsp;and tech site&nbsp;<a href="http://recode.net/2014/08/05/codered-apple-to-hold-iphone-event-on-sept-9/" target="_blank">Re/code&nbsp;</a>are reporting that Apple will hold a launch event on 9 September, with a predicted release date of 19 September.

Premium models, essentially.</p> <p>Synthetic sapphire glass, which Apple produces at a plant in Arizona, is widely regarded as a superior material to Gorilla Glass due to its resistance to scratching and breaking. Apple already uses it in small quantities on iPhone models (the iPhone 5s&rsquo; Touch ID button and camera lens are covered by sapphire), and was widely predicted to be making it the standard screen material for the iPhone 6. But if the WSJ&rsquo;s sources are correct, Gorilla Glass might have some iPhone life left in it yet.</p> <p>We may well find out the truth on 9 September, when Apple seems likely to unveil the iPhone 6.

Apple has already met with Thai officials about the disclosure which has pretty much confirmed the rumour that the next iPhone launch will see not one, but two new phones from Apple.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/sg/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Official Tweet leaks </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The tweet by Takorn Tantasith, Secretary General of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) (roughly translated) only stated that the iPhone 6 had been approved for sale.</p> <p>No information besides the model numbers (A1586 and A1524) were released but Apple is still upset, saying the announcement released confidential information. Tantasith defended his move saying there was nothing that could be called a trade secret that was leaked, defending his action as a way to protect consumers.</p> <p>The good news for Thai Apple users is that the &#39;leak&#39; will not affect Apple&#39;s plans to sell the iPhone in the country. So it does look as though besides Singapore, Thailand might be another Asian country besides Hong Kong and perhaps China to see the iPhone 6 first. There&#39;s some slim hope for Malaysia but it&#39;s far likelier that the country will be in the second wave.</p> <p>Seeing that both models were approved in Thailand, then it&#39;s pretty much certain that Apple will be pushing out both the new phone models at the same time. 9 September looks to be the official launch date and we&#39;ll be sure to keep you updated.</p> <p><strong>READ

Siri could be integrated into a standalone app that is invoked by a keyboard or mouse gesture. It could also be tasked to run in the background and wait for a voice command like the &ldquo;Hey, Siri&rdquo; activation in the upcoming iOS 8.</p> <p dir="ltr">In some pages, the icon for &lsquo;Siri&rsquo; is on the dock, telling the user it&#39;s active and ready. Hence, the user is able to take advantage of the assistant anywhere in the system.</p> <p dir="ltr">The patent seems to indicate the assistant not only augmenting keyboard and mouse input, but sometimes outright replacing it. It will have the same input/response cycle with the Siri of iOS. However, with the additional computing power of a desktop, more advanced operations may be carried out.</p> <p dir="ltr">An interesting application will be its use as a literal assistant which is titled &ldquo;Using Digital Assistant as Third Hand&rdquo; on the patent. Apple notes that multitasking functionality is somewhat limited on current desktops, restricted to one window at a time.</p> <p dir="ltr">To ensure unbroken focus, let&rsquo;s say, while writing an article for an online publication, you may need to change windows to your web browser to search for pertinent pictures. The new virtual assistant allows you to simply ask it for help and it will automatically feed you results, and you won&#39;t need to switch from your text editor.</p> <p dir="ltr">This feature is still far from ready for public consumption unfortunately.
