What's going on?
Brian Tong here.
And welcome to the Apple Byte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple.
And the iPhone 8 is still getting all the hype even though we're now four months away from any announcement.
After iPhone leaker, Benjamin Geskin, posted a quick video of an alleged iPhone 8 dummy model in hand.
Now it's a better look at what the next flagship iPhone might look like and they also included two really clean pics of it.
Now new renders by Apple iDesigner show us how clean it may look and again these are all based on purported schematics that have leaked out.
The latest batch of designs have moved away from the rear touch ID design that may have been an option but again none of this official but you can bet.
It's pretty much going to look just like this.
Now photos claim to show the mold of apple's 2017 iPhone line-up could give us a potential look at the relative sizes of the rumored devices from left to right you can see the iPhone 7s plus, the 8 and then the 7s.
Now the iPhone 8 is smacked in the middle as an expected not to be too much bigger than the 7s due to it's [UNKNOWN] design [UNKNOWN] the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Now in past Year's leaked parts have started showing up in May.
But the lack of them could indicate that the next iPhone will be releasing later in the year as some reports have claimed.
We will see.
All right, the iPhone 8 isn't even out, but if you want to hear a bunk rumor for the week, some Korean outlets like the Investor are already reporting on the iPhone 9 screen sizes.
Now, I won't repeat them but Here, let's guess, it will probably look a lot like this.
So, stop you guys.
You know what?
You're getting a bad apple.
[SCREAM] Like, come on, too early.
Now, I think everyone who watches this show knows that I love the iPad Pro, and wooden style for the rumored 10.5 inch iPad Pro have been revealed by guess who?
Now they feature standard cutouts for the lightning port, and for speaker grills But the microphone is in a new spot, at the top-center of the backside, like the current 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
And the new design trend for Apple in 2017, a vertically aligned rear camera.
Geskin also released CAD images and renderings Based on the model that case manufacturers are receiving from the factory, the renderings, and these dummy models still show off a slight bezel on the edges.
But if a shorter top and bottom bezels, they could still accommodate a home button.
Now, we are expecting to see new MacBook Pros and MacBooks at the Worldwide Developers Conference, but we could be surprised with the announcement of the new 10.5 inch iPad Pro and possibly Apple's first Siri-based smart speaker.
as well but we all know WWGT is where Apple software has a chance to shine and I've been begging for something more from IOS 11 specifically with the Ipad I know you have too.
Now maybe Apple should hire [UNKNOWN] of Mac stories and Sam [UNKNOWN] who collaborated To give us iOS 11 with drag and drop functionality.
The cost of the iOS 11 features moving pictures from one app to another by dragging and dropping.
It also incorporates a shelf that holds onto things you've copied.
You can access them later, and add to other documents or apps.
You can move text from one document, and then drag it directly onto your reminders app.
And what about a finder interface To navigate and handle files.
This would an iOS like no other, and that's a good thing.
Now we'll see what Apple can come up with.
I'm always hopeful for WWDC, but they're also gonna have to compete with this.
The new Surface Pro for 2017.
Now the new high-end model with Kaby Lake processors is 1.7 times faster than Apple's current a9 chip, but And that could change soon, and the new Surface Pro brings 35% more battery life, with 13.5 hours of juice.
The new Surface pen has been improved as well to support tilt like the Apple pencil already has.
So, I'm personally invested, and await To see what Apple can do to really amp up the iPad Pro.
Don't let us down because I don't want any sad apples.
All right in tech coming to Apple in the future, Thunderbolt has been on Apple devices from the beginning thanks to an Intel and Apple partnership.
Now Intel is pushing for mainstream adoption by releasing the protocol specification to the industry under a nonexclusive, royalty-free license.
Intel plans to integrate thunderbolt 3 into future CPU.
And that new all in one design will take up less space on a Mac or PCs logic board and reduce power function, since you won't need a dedicated controller.
Now there's no.
No set timeline when that will happen yet but the new design will help extend battery life while having a standard that supports power.
USB, display port, ACMI, MVGA in a single connection.
And I know what you're thinking down.
[UNKNOWN] All right a new report from Digitimes claims Apple's already set for a trial production of the next generation of display technology it's micro led.
Now micro led is a microscopic version of standard leds that That's even bright and more power efficient then current [UNKNOWN] displays.
They claim apple is making a small volume of micro LED devices this year we probably wont' see them in the apple watch but the apple watch is expected to be the first device in Apples line up that will eventually make the switch to micro LED.
Alright let's get to our winners from our just [INAUDIBLE] two game codes give away I asked for your clever character names meet the tech world and congrats first goes out to Iman Mahmoud who hit me with everything he got on twitter from Apptrocitus to El capitan cold And Garage Bane which cracked me up.
