The latest iPhone 5S and 5C rumors

Culture
What's good? Brian Tong here, and welcome to the Apple Byte for everything good and bad, you name it, inside the world of Apple. There's lots of iPhone news and rumors this week. The September 10th is getting closer, so I just wanted to prepare you for it. And we start with a report from the Wall Street Journal. This is Apple's as their Assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry Company to begin shipping the new high-end and low-end phones in early September. We even predicted on this show last year that Apple should bring 2 phones to the market. Yeah, I know we predicted two different screen sizes, which we probably not getting, but it looks pretty certain that we'll see Apple announcing two different iPhone models at the same time for the first time and everyone remembers their first time right on a Byte. Now we told you last week about the rumors of a gold phone, you know, that one will now all things D is confirming that Apple will indeed release a gold iPhone that's more of an elegant gold-tone like champagne. Now their sources say, it will be a white front face with a gold-tone back plate and tampered edge like this mock-up from iMore. And it made me wonder what other great things have we seen that are gold. Well, the Oympics have the gold medal. Mario jumps around look like gold coins, and in Japan, they have the golden turd and there's even pills with 24 karat gold flakes in them, so you can actually poop gold. Clearly, the gold iPhone has a really prestigious company. Now the iPhone 5C is still getting headed on by the hardcore Apple fans, but the reality, is that it's not the phone targeting them. KGI analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting that the 5C will actually replace the iPhone 5 in the line-up and it will support TDD LTE used by China mobile to give Apple a huge boost overseas. But the expected iPhone 5S will still be the more popular model globally and exceed the 5C in shipments. All right, this week's leaked Apple part from nowherelse.fr is the rear shell of the next gen iPad and iPad mini. It jives with everything we've heard and seen about the design over the past few months, so we thought we just show it to you anyways. And looking into the future with Apple pens, the big A has been granted a pen called "Working with 3D objects" for 3D gesture control on touch devices. Now, this would allow the user to extend the multi-touch capabilities used on the screen to the air space above the screen allowing for 3D manipulation of objects with 3D gesture inputs. So, you could spend a dice around that would be displayed on the screen while your fingers are manipulating it above it and it something I've always wanted to do in life. Now if you guys missed this one, Apple's also researching flexible headphone connectors to prevent them from potentially breaking. By using flexible or elastic parts on the connector, the plug would be able to withstand moderate bending that might break other connectors and no one wants a connector stuck inside the port. All right, to the quick Bytes, Team Nike Fuelband developer and fitness expert Jay Blahnik confirms his join in Apple's team and is likely working on something that goes maybe on your wrist or even the next iHeadband. I want that. Now all signs point to something iWatch-related obviously. But the fuelband is honestly the weakest fitness band on the bunch and it just has Nike's marketing muscle. So we better see more than just a made-up calculation we can't track called Fuel on the next iWatch. And I'm sorry but, I'm just keeping it real. All right, Google has updated some of its apps with some really cool bells and whistles. The YouTube app on iOS has just been updated and you can now multi-task in the app by dragging your video from the top to the bottom to have your video playing in the bottom corner while still searching for more videos and swipe in to get rid of it. It's a sweet update we're checking out, so you guys should look at that. And if you're using Google Maps like I am, it started integrating traffic data from their acquisition with Waze so you can see if there's any accidents, road construction or hazards in your area by going to the traffic tab in. I'm loving this update. And the Jobs movie, you know, the one with Ashton Kutcher has been out in theaters and it made an estimated 6.7 million dollars of the weekend according to Box Office Mojo. The Steve Jobs' biopic earned less than 1/3 as much as the Facebook movie and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniack called Kutcher disingenuous and believes the movie is wildly inaccurate. It also has 26 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes and-- yikes. That's a bad Apple. Now this is not looking good. Maybe some of you enjoyed it but I'm not planning on CNET and I'll wait for Aaron Sorkin's interpretation instead because he's pretty good. All right, our show is out early this week because I'm in the NYC so we're gonna extend the Monster DNA headphone giveaway valued at over $200 for one more week. That means, you have more time to send me your video submissions of you dancing like a crazy. It can be a YouTube, Vine or Instagram and send your link to the applebyte@cnet.com or tweet me @BrianTong. And this has to a video you just shot because people sending me links like 2 years ago. It ain't gonna cut it and you really need to bring your A-game. All right. That's gonna do it for this week's show. I'm Brian Tong. Thanks for watching. We'll catch you guys next week for another byte of the Apple.
