Inside Scoop: Apple iPhone 6 event will be heavy on hardwareCNET's Sumi Das gets the scoop from editor at large Tim Stevens ahead of Tuesday's Apple event. What do new leaked images of the iPhone 6 suggest? And will we see not just one, but two types of iWatch devices?
Hello, and welcome to Inside Scoop. I'm Sumi Das. Joining me is Tim Stevens, Editor at Large for CNET. Tim, you have a invitation, a coveted invitation to attend the Apple event. Yeah. We are now at T minus one day. It's happening tomorrow. Yeah. And there have been a flurry of leaks in the. I would say last, you know 72 hours. Let's talk about what we know for sure and then let's, let's get to these links. We know we're gonna see Iphone's, right? Right. Iphone 6 Yeah, we're, we're expecting two new Iphones. One in a 4.7 inch size which will probably be the new Iphone 6, Bigger than what we've got now. But that's .7 inch increase over before so quite a bit larger than before and they should be. thinner as well, because once you make phones larger in that dimension, you can then make them a little bit thinner, but still offer the same battery life. So it should be a nice upgrade in that regard. Thinner, probably even lighter than the current phone despite being bigger. And I'm hoping it's stronger, because I've been cracking my screen. I know we're not gonna see Sapphire glass, right? That's pretty much off the table, right? When I hear thinner and larger, I think. Snappable. [LAUGH] Yeah, that's definitely a big challenge. I mean, obviously I think your device gives you a lot more torsional rigidity. So, it resists that sort of twisting. Mm-hm. A thinner device, can Apple deliver the same sort of strength? Hopefully, we'll swe, we've seen some chassis leaks and things look pretty solid. But you know? Right. You never know until you actually get it in your pocket and sit on it. They are known for having a pretty solid product. Okay, so Beyond the iPhone, the other thing that people are, are hoping for, expecting, is the iWatch. RIght. Do we even know that it's gonna be called an iWatch? No, we actually haven't seen a solid leak on the name yet. I think everyone's just assuming it's gonna be iWatch, which is actually a pretty catchy name. But we're actually expecting multiple wearable devices, possible two different models Really? > So maybe there'll be two different names, or maybe it'll be iWatch and iWatch. Light. Mm-hm. We really haven't seen any indication but we're definitely expecting to see Apple's entry into the world market tomorrow finally after so many years of waiting. Okay. Any leaked images that seem more credible than the other stuff? We did see some chassé leaks or some supported chassé leaks just this morning so supposed CAD schematics that show what the case looks like it's a rectangular a rather rectangular device, it's actually a lot of debate online about their legitimacy. Okay. They may just actually be a test. A case to hold the actual iwatch within it, which would mean we still don't know what the iwatch is shaped like. So not exactly very legit [LAUGH] just yet, we still don't know exactly what it's going to look like or how exactly it's gonna work. Questions leading to questions. There's still some interg for tomorrow which is good. Yeah and a lot interg surrounding this white structure. That's been built right next to the Flint center. Right. What is, what's your best guess? Well I think that we're gonna see a lot of people here [INAUDIBLE] probably gonna give us a little bit more, room. But I think we'll see a lot more with health kit and home kit, home kit in particular gonna give you more connectivity for appliances and things like that in the home. And maybe we'll even see some new stuff with car play. So maybe there'll be maybe a Ferrari F12 parked on the show floor tomorrow morning that we can get get a demonstration of car play. One can hope. Mm-hm. If there are two new phones, and the smaller of the newer phones is 4.7 inches in terms of screen size. Do we know the dimensions of the larger phone? We're thinking 5.5, which would give it. Big. The size, right around the size of the new note 3. Something like that. So yeah, definitely a large phone. We're definitely in tablet territory. We are. And what's that gonna enable you to do? It gives you more resolution. And we're expecting it to have kind of like an iPad style interface. At least if you hold the phone sideways. So, for example, if you're in the calendar app, you'd get your agenda on the left. And then you'd actually have the traditional calendar view on the right. So, more work, More visible space. And more of a, more of a professional feel, I think. All right. So we know you're gonna be there. You're gonna be live blogging. We'll be live blogging. It's gonna be pretty exciting. We're gonna be typing away. Myself and Shar are gonna be giving you the blow by blow. There will be a live video stream, so you can watch that, too. But you always want some commentary to go with your sports, right? Yes you do. So, we'll be there with the commentary. Excellent. Tim Stephens, thank you so much. Thank you.
