As noted by a number of MacRumors forum members and Twitter users, Apple has begun preparing a number of stock Mac Pro configurations for delivery starting on December 30. In addition, many other users are seeing their credit cards charged and order statuses changed to "Preparing for Shipment". The new status indicates that orders cannot be canceled or changed and are in the final stage before the new Mac Pros are handed off to delivery companies.

Apple begins preparing first Mac Pro orders for December 30 delivery

Although the majority of users' reported dates appears to be December 30, a small number of users are also reporting that their deliver dates are December 27. Both dates would squeeze the new Mac Pros into Apple's self-imposed December release date for the new professional desktop computer.

It appears that the first shipments of the Mac Pros are all stock configurations, as it has thus far been unclear if custom configurations have been shipping out to users. Since online ordering has been available, the shipping estimates have slipped into February 2014, with demand outstripping supply.

Apple Inc. may launch its next generation iPhone sooner than expected, suggests the latest report from Digitimes. According to Digitimes’ supply chain sources, Apple is expected to roll out a larger display iPhone 6 for May 2014 powered by a 20nm processor manufactured and supplied by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.

iPhone 6 release date pushed up to May 2014

iPhone 6 could come sooner than expected

A bigger iPhone 6 would compete against Samsung phablets like the Galaxy Note 3. If the report about the launch is true then it would probably be the first time that Apple would launch an iPhone so close to the release of its latest iPhone 5s, but it could be a good move for Apple not to delay the bigger size iPhone with rivals planning a plethora of new devices.

Apple Inc. may hurry to launch the bigger display iPhone as Samsung has already released phablets in the Asian market. It is expected that, in its agreement with China Mobile, Apple might have added the upcoming products.

iPhone 6 may not have curved screen

According to reports from the Korea Herald, the upcoming iPhone 6 might not sport a curved display. The curved screen has already been adopted by Samsung in its Galaxy Round and by LG in its G Flex, but it would not be seen in the iPhone 6. The report noted that the Samsung Display and LG display are facing issues in producing enough screens for their existing curved phones.

Analyst Kim Jong Hyun from Eugene Investment & Securities said that the current capacity for curved screen panels is not much for the Galaxy S5. He added that curved phones would be available as a Galaxy variant rather than as the flagship model.

Another analyst, John Seo at Shinhan Investment, said that it is very unlikely that Apple Inc. would bring a curved display to its phone next year, but it could be possible in 2015.

Wraparound might not be viable

It is also difficult to believe as of now that the iPhone 6 would come with wraparound technology as the screen will extend up to the sides of the phone, which does not seem viable. If the screen covers the sides of the phone it would be difficult for the user to hold the phone.

Peter Zigich, a designer by profession, published some concept designs of iPhones. Zigich has published designs of a hypothetical iPhone mini, iPhone 6 and iPhablet. There are pictures by other designers showcasing the iPhone with wraparound screen and also edge-to-edge screens along with a trackpad-like home button.

Other rumors surrounding the display

iPhone 6 release date pushed up to May 2014

Reading the tea leaves from the latest patent, the upcoming iPhone 6 might also adopt wraparound technology with AMOLED screen, which would be similar to the fourth generation iPod Nano. In the patent, it was revealed that the screen can be unrolled or unfolded. Facial-recognition, gesture control and the layering of screens to create a 3D display were also described in the patent.

There have been a series of reports on the alleged features and specifications of Apple Inc. iPhone 6 suggesting that the next generation iPhone would have a 5-inch display, which is bigger when compared to previous iPhones, but smaller than the Galaxy Note 3.

It was reported that Apple is trying to produce a 4.8-inch Retina+IGZO screen made by Sharp. The screen of the new iPhone is expected be more suave, brighter and have better resolution.

Features that could make iPhone 6 more attractive

The next iPhone may feature Sonar instead of infrared sensors, according to a report from AppleInsider. The technology would assist the user to find the phone. Also, the phone would have a “smart bezel” according to another patent. Smart bezel technology would hold the flashing buttons and symbols that will integrate with the on-screen actions.

The latest iPhone from Apple Inc. is expected to have a new Lytro-style camera revealed in a separate patent. In the patent, it is suggested that Apple has developed the technology that could shoot light field photographs with a much smaller lens. Through the lytro technology, the photos can be refocused after snapping them. If Apple sports Lytro technology it would become the first tech company to integrate the technology in its smartphone or tablet.

Many experts are expecting that Apple could bring a little change in its name like it did for its iPad by naming the latest iPad as iPad Air. So, if the new iPhone comes with a tag Air or anything else, one should not be surprised.

Other expected features

There are other reports that reveal the storage capacity that Apple is keen to offer in its upcoming iPhone. The new iPhone would have the storage capacity of 128GB, an increase from the top end 64 GB handset. However, the question remains whether Apple Inc. would use the same technology it uses in the iPad for its iPhone.

According to a patent, the iPhone maker would embed a fingerprint sensor including Near Field Communication technology, which would help in functions like wireless payment, data transfers, media playback and more. The new chip could be featured into upcoming iPhone 6.

iPhone 6 release date pushed up to May 2014

Eye tracking technology has become the most popular feature in the smartphones, and Apple is expected to include the technology in its next iPhone. It is highly possible that Apple Inc. would bring in some sort of motion technology in its next iPhone.

The iPhone 6 is expected to have iOS8, which would be more or less similar to the recently launched iOS7. Other expected features would be advanced Bluetooth, wireless technology, sapphire crystal and enhanced storage.

Not all rumored specifications and features seem to be practical, but some of them definitely do. Even though the web is flooded with the talks of the iPhone 6, there is no official comment on any features or specifications. Every now and then, one or the other news on the iPhone 6 creeps up making it difficult for fans to keep track, but don’t worry, we will be here to update you on all important news concerning your favorite hypothetical gadget.

It finally happened: Apple’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c will soon be available from the world’s largest wireless carrier, China Mobile. Apart from an immediate end to all of the speculation, which we certainly appreciate, the deal means big money for both Apple and China Mobile as the latest iPhone models will soon be sold directly to China Mobile’s 763 million subscribers — or, at least a potentially healthy portion of its 181 million 3G subscribers.

Here’s how Apple will make an extra $13 billion in 2014

How much money is the deal worth to Apple? According to one industry watcher, the China Mobile agreement is worth as much as about $13 billion in additional revenue in 2014 alone.

Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White on Monday morning issued new research to his clients covering the China Mobile deal and its implications. According to White, there is already strong demand for iPhones among China Mobile subscribers and it’s about to get stronger.

“Despite not having an official agreement with China Mobile before Sunday night’s announcement, we estimate there are 35-40 million iPhone users on the network at China Mobile,” White wrote. “Our visits to China Mobile branches, resellers and an Apple Retail Store this weekend in China highlighted that China Mobile is offering the iPhone 5S (and iPhone 5C) to customers; however, the new iPhones are only available on the 2.5G/2G network, but this will clearly change given Sunday night’s announcement.”

Moving on to some figures, White believes that Apple will sell between 20 million and 24 million iPhone handsets through China Mobile in 2014. Using Apple’s current estimated average selling price of $525 for the iPhone in China, that would mean up to an additional $12.6 billion in revenue. According to White, the deal will add an additional $4 to Apple’s EPS in calendar 2014, or nearly $3.6 billion in profit.

White reiterated his Buy rating on Apple shares with a $777 price target.

The Windows Phone mobile platform may be looking to have an even better 2014 after showing some encouraging momentum this year, at least according to a Windows Supersitearticle written by Paul Thurrott.

While Windows Phone is still trailing in third place behind Google and Apple when it comes to mobile market share, it has been growing at a faster rate than its competitors even though at the end of 2013 it still only owned just 3.6% of the overall market.

In certain regions of the world including Europe and Latin America, Windows Phone has registered even better sales and has even surpassed an 8% share in the five biggest European markets.

Will 2014 be the year of Windows Phone?

Android had an 81% market share according to October numbers released by IDC, while iOS had a 13% share in the same third quarter, down from a 14.5% share in Q3 2012 despite increased iPhone sales compared to 2012. Windows Phone shipments rose by more than 150% year over year and the platform has nestled comfortably into third place ahead of BlackBerry.

According to Thurrott, there are several factors that helped with Microsoft’s mobile growth, including Nokia’s line of devices covering various price points and therefore addressing the needs of more potential buyers — it also helps that Nokia accounted for more than 80% of Windows Phone device sales — but also BlackBerry’s uninspiring products that made its customers easy targets for competitors.

Furthermore, the Windows Phone app store has just surpassed 200,000 apps, growing at a rate of roughly 8,000 apps per month, as at the end of February the store had around 130,000 apps. Naturally, Microsoft is way behind on apps numbers, with both Google and Apple having surpassed the 1 million apps mark and still growing strong each month. But Windows Phone users now have more app options for their needs even though not as many as iOS and Android users.

In 2014, Windows Phone may very well see more growth, which could at least help it protect its position as the No. 3 mobile platform, if not to improve it. It also doesn’t hurt that Microsoft made a bid to buy Nokia’s mobile arm for $7.2 billion to closely control the smartphone manufacturing process as well as the software side of the business in the future. If things go according to plan, then Microsoft should have a lot more Windows Phone users by the time it launches its next major update to the OS sometime next year.
