The "iPhone 6" is in the wild...in China

Services & Software
[MUSIC] What's up, Brian Tong here and welcome to the Apple Byte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. Now, I'd first like to start off the show with an apology for all those rumors about LeBron going to Cleveland that were, in fact, true. Hello? Hold up, Dre. Hold up, I gotta finish something. [MUSIC] Talk to me. Just like Apple rumors have been over the past few years. Like, every rumor you hear is actually true. So, I'm sorry, and yes, I get a bad apple. Aah! On to the show, and we have a heavy dose of iPhone and iWatch news. If you're anxiously waiting to see a working iPhone six, you won't have to anymore, well, kind of. Thanks to my relatives iPhone six clones are already appearing in China mobile phone market place that are even using the rumour [UNKNOWN] factors for the iPhone six, and a full functioning IOS 7 even if it is a little laggy. Now, the [UNKNOWN] i six features the 4.7 inch body. And the Goophone i6 will start shipping on August the first with a quad core media tech chip set, one gig of ram and a thirteen megapixel camera. Now I would just change the name because I don't like the idea of having a Goophone. And if you wanna get your iPhone six case ahead of item, spy again has listed multiple 4.7 and 5.5 inch cases on Amazon. Get em while they're hot if you actually think they're going to fit the phone that hasn't come out yet. Also report last week says Foxconn is preparing to enhance its assembly process with a new line of robots. Now each of the planned 100,000 robots are in the final testing phase and will cost around 20 to $30,000 and will be able to pump out an average of 300,000 smart phones. Now they'll probably be seeing a lot of these. This is a picture of the alleged new touch ID part for the iPhone 6 that's below the current iPhone touch ID sensor, and if I was getting replaced by a robot, I'd take as many pictures of leaked parts as I could, so keep it up China. Alright according to a Chinese report from CN beta, the big able reportedly increased the speed of its A8 chip to 2 gigahertz. Faster from the iPhone 5S's 1.3 gigahertz, and the iPad Air's 1.7 gigahertz A7 processor. The chip will keep the same 64 bit dual core architecture, even if the competition is using quad core chips. The reasoning behind this, is because Apple uses a custom designed chip optimized for iOS, and the A7 more than delivered on performance, compared to other phones. All right, on to the iWatch watch. Taiwan's Economic Daily News says Apple is now planning to launch 3 versions of the iWatch in the 3rd quarter of this year. A 1.6 inch model, and 2 1.8 inch models, with the higher version of the larger size coming with a Sapphire display. Now you remember, that same one was unscratchable and unbreakable from any bending. Reports and rumors still point to an October announcement, with a possible November release date. And the 12.9 inch iPad Pro rumor has been resurrected. Analyst Ming Chi Quo, says the big screen iPad will be made official this year, as well. Alright, a report by the Washington Post says. The iPad may be the cause of unexplained rashes in children after the Pediatrics Medical Journal focused on an eleven year old boy who developed a rash that would not respond to conventional treatment. His skin tested positive for nickel and the doctors traced it back to the iPad he had been using for the past six months and the iPad tested positive for nickel as well. That's a bad apple. Now, they put a smart case on it's iPad and his rash subsided. But, that could explain this big red rash that I have on my inner tides. It's actually right here like, all in here. Now, apple responded, saying the products met the [UNKNOWN] standards and [UNKNOWN] allergies appeared to be on the rise. But, I use my iPad against my bare skin. All the time, especially in my lap. See, maybe having a plastic I-Phone isn't that bad and I'll take everything bad back that I said about the I-Phone [iii]. We sitting' here, Apple's suppose to be the leader for innovation, and we here talking' about plastic? And do you guys want another bad apple cuz I have one more. This weeks not app of the week goes to Kim Kardashians Hollywood game. So for the sake of reporting I tried this out for you. And you create yourself you make like an avatar and Kim Kardashain becomes your like much better looking Yoda to guide you into becoming a star. You can do the red carpet events, and go to boutiques and clubs and flirt, and you can be a model. Or a fashion designer. Or an A-list movie star, and did I mention you can flirt? [MUSIC] Now, the game is free, but it really sucks you in because you need these things called K stars, that you can buy with your own money. Unless you wanna wait around doing photo shoots and jobs to earn K Stars, and who wants to do that? [MUSIC] Holy crap. Did I just say all that? This game is horrible. The only thing that's accurate here is that you have the same chance of being a big-time celebrity with no talent whatsoever. Except It's on your tablet and that's a big bad apple. Do not download this game because I just did it for you alright we'll be back next week with our email episode and again you can send me your ask me anything questions to the aplebyte@cnet.com or tweet me at Brian Tong because guess where I'm going on vacation. It's this horrible tropical island called Hawaii. So thanks so much for watching, and we'll see you guys next time on another bite of The Apple.Aloha! [MUSIC]
