I don't fight us that's scary but -- replacement doesn't Apple's. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I. Bliss after that Brian Tong and welcome to the Apple byte for everything those goods a -- all of it inside the world of Apple right here. Now we finally have a rumored date for Apple's next iPhone to debut on September the twelve that's a Wednesday. With the release of the phone a bold nine days later on Friday September 21 according to -- more. Other tech outlets have also confirmed September 12 as the date for an Apple announcement but there hasn't been an official confirmation by the big a just yet. -- more also reports that the iPad mini yes. That guy will be announced at the same event along with the new rumored iPod nano and iPod Touch with September historically been the time for Apple's music player announcements. Now I -- chimes in with some details about the iPhone and the new dock connector that some people are still obsessed about. They say it will not be -- nineteen -- sixteen pin connector but eight pins. They'll potentially have the ability to connect the docs and tables in either orientation like a MagSafe so we'll see about that but we asked you the Apple byters tell us what you thought. Now Anthony says. IPhone 5 yes regardless of number of -- Patti says the new design alone is enough for me to not get the iPhone 5 putting the Jack on the bottom doesn't make sense. Now it's about half and half of people who preferred on top. I preferred on the bottom. The headphone Jack that is Kevin says they should wait for a better phone and that's. Blackberry ten. No now -- -- also reports there will be an IOS six and Bluetooth poorly. They speculate will allow an iPod nano to receive messages or emails on its screen for people who are still. -- it as a watch that I promise -- no longer make fun of it would be taking the concept of the -- sort of -- watched for Sony's Smart watch and bring it to the Apple ecosystem. Also with the announcement potentially getting closer. New video footage and still images. From Japanese repair shop I -- factory shows a fully assembled device of what the front in the backside of the new iPhone might look like. Now we know Apple CEO Tim Cook talked about doubling down on secrecy a few months ago but these images are so detailed unbelievable. I'm sorry to believe this is it or could Apple really have just leaked out the -- both five that it. -- -- -- -- a phone. -- let's take out our app of the week. This one's a no brainer it's the Amazon instant video app for the iPad now Amazon prime members who -- -- nine dollars a year. Really get the benefit of having access to bowl of the shows and movies. But if you're not a member you can still purchase content to watch on the app. Now few things you guys should know. There is no search function in the app to find anything you want you have to you scroll through the icons there is no search. Also thinks Apple's awesome rules if you want to purchase any content and -- -- here you have to go to Amazon's web site first to make the transaction. And then it will appear in your library but you can't deal with in the happen. You can thank Apple for that. And at the moment airplay only works for audio. And not full screen video yes it's still -- app of the week because how can you complain about a 140000 videos and shows now be available for free. But it's not perfect. Just like people so check out the Amazon instant video app. -- right there's also an ongoing trial between Apple and Samsung that's expected to last several weeks where Apple is trying to convince a jury that one of its biggest rival Samsung. Copying their designs and technology to get where they are today now Samsung's arguing Apple's iPad and iPhone would have been impossible to -- without their technology. Remember Samsung makes components that are inside of Apple's products making this the best -- for enemies we've seen since Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie. Now the best part of this by is that we have now been given access to the thinking. And designs inside of Apple with prototype renderings and images that are being made public for this case to look facilities to some pretty cool stuff and some of the design cues. -- even been implemented into the rumored prototype that we've seen already now Apple vs Samsung is constantly evolving it's a long ways to go so we'll keep in the loop with major things that happen.
