iPhone 6 getting 4.8in screen, says analyst

Now, we’re too smart to trust anything financial analysts have to say about future Apple devices (if they were right, we’d all be watching Apple-branded TVs in our living rooms right this second), but it’s our duty to report this claim from the Cowen Group’s Timothy Arcuri. He says that the next iPhone will definitely have a 4.8in display.

Citing sources from within Apple’s supply chain, Arcuri says that the iPhone 6 will also have “key software innovations” (well, duh). But it’s the screen thing that’s most intriguing: Apple is currently using a 4in screen having upsized from 3.5in with the iPhone 5. But 4in is still a lot smaller than the screens toted by flagship Android and Windows Phone devices, and many have predicted that Apple would feel compelled to follow suit.

Stay tuned for more on this, and in the mean time you can read up on the latest Apple iPhone 6 rumours and speculation here.

Amazon spills beans on GTA 5’s PC release

While Rockstar Games has never confirmed an upcoming PC release for Grand Theft Auto 5, Amazon has posted pages for a Windows 7/Vista version of the game on its French and German sites.

There’s no release date mentioned (the French page has been removed, the German one is still up at the time of writing) but there is a price of €59.99. Seems safe to say that the PC will be getting GTA 5 at some point in the next couple of months, and that it’ll probably cost around S$80 here in SG.

Pocket gets Apple AirPlay support

Pocket, the app which allows you to save web pages for later reading, has just added a killer new feature: AirPlay support. It means that if you own an Apple TV you can send any video clips you’ve saved to Pocket wirelessly on your living room telly for big screen watching.

Pocket’s developers say that the app’s users watch two million videos a week within the app – so it’s giving them a way to watch them outside of it. You can download Pocket for iOS from the App Store: just click here.
