                             4.8-inch iPhone 6 arriving in Summer 2014

Peter Misek, that well-known analyst from Jeffries is back with more news on the iPhone front.  He tells us that the new iPhone 5S will be launched sometime in the summer as it will be going to manufacturing in March.  He also tells us that there’s a strong possibility of a big Apple event in March, mainly to unveil a brand new SDK – software development kit for those that don’t know.  This will enable all you programmers and developers to write apps and games for 1080p displays on the Apple TV set-top box

And now he tells us that the 4.8” iPhone 6 will not be released until 2014. He first announced that this phone was being worked on in December last year and that it would be released this year. This was followed up by a report from DigiTimes that it would be next year before we saw it and that now seems to be the case. Misek based his original report on sights of a few prototypes for the iPhone 6, one of which had the larger screen. He said,
“It has a Retina+ IGZO screen, a new A7 quad-core processor variant, and a new form factor with no home button. Full gesture control is also possibly included.”
Today he says it will be next year because
“We think Apple plans to re-architect iOS to utilize more cores and better compete with Samsung. Also, we believe the way iOS interoperates with iCloud, gestures controls, and advertising will be substantially upgraded.”
There could be one more reason for the delay though; it has been alleged that Apple want the A7 package on the 20-nanometer process from TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) but it appears that this won’t be available before 2014. It’s yet another case of wait and see but speculate all you like in the meantime.

                 Turn any Surface into a Virtual iPhone Keyboard

While most people speculate and theorize about the future, some others make it obsolete by achieving today what seems to be improbable or even impossible, hence making the future a thing of the past. This time, the defendant is University of London’s student Florian Kraeutli, who developed a (wait for it !) Virtual keyboard for iPhone , using an accelerometer to teach each tapping made on a surface to the iPhone so the gadget can remember it. Sounds like a wacky but useless application at the first time, doesn’t it? Maybe it is. And maybe we’re wrong!

I think I’ve seen this approach somewhere else
Looking back some time, there were virtual laser keyboards that you could use on any flat surface. The motion sensors detect a key being pressed on the virtual keyboard, and this movement is then transmitted to the connected device. It didn’t get that much of a hype as it was too expensive and didn’t also perform in the best conditions if you were traveling, as the movement could cause you to stroke a wrong key, even though it could be used virtually with any device like a mobile phone or a tablet. This new invention is somewhat different though, as it uses key stroke strength and vibration patterns to tell the device which key is being pressed.

Status of the application
Using it is rather simple: you put the iPhone on top of a paper sheet with a delimiting area, with all the keyboard keys below. The idea is to have it near the keys so when you tap them the phone will receive the vibrations and transform each into a character, then a word (that is presented through a dictionary on the phone) and then it is inserted. So far, the accuracy rate is in the 80% outskirts, which is encouraging on one hand but still not enough, as Florian says. Besides being a cool app, so far it’s only intended for the iPhone, but if released for other devices it may well be something to watch
