After the release of a report claiming that OS X Yosemite will see a delayed public release in October and will share the event with a new 4K thunderbolt display, we are seeing a leaked images and concepts getting a new life. Apple kept up with yesterday’s buzz by releasing the first OS X Yosemite public beta to the users. Earlier report came from a trusted source which has managed to successfully predict – or report – a number of bits related to Apple in the past too.

With this revived expectation of Apple working on a new 4K Thunderbolt desktop (there is also an indication that this could be a new iMac with 4K support instead of the Thunderbolt 2 display), here comes the first concept of the beautiful 4K thunderbolt display. This Apple 4K cinema concept comes from Edgar Rios who has designed a rather gorgeous new 4K Thunderbolt Display. With minimal bezels on the right and left sides and curved design, the new 4K thunderbolt display does look quite sleek.

Different Apple products’ launch dates are getting leaked today thanks to an insider source. We earlier reported that Apple is getting ready for a tentative iPhone 6 launch event in mid-September along with iOS 8. With iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite aiming for a consistent platform and offering many similar features, one expected both the mobile and desktop operating systems to have a single launch event. However, turns out Apple is delaying the launch event of OS X Yosemite which will be a month later in October along with a new 12-inch Retina MacBook and an Apple 4K desktop!Apple 4K desktop

iOS 8 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch is set for a September launch event. On the other hand, the Mac OS X Yosemite is pushed a month ahead for October release according to sources. With Developer Previews coming every two to three weeks as planned, OS X Yosemite developers will receive a final Preview build on September 29th followed by a Golden Master build on October 10th, according to the sources close to 9to5mac. The site shares authoritative bits of Apple’s news and leaks and have previously correctly broken a few rumors.

Gather around, gather around. With Apple due to launch its next smartphone this September, details and images of its alleged parts have already started to appear all over the internet. One of the oldest leaks related to the phone was that Apple was reportedly going to switch to a Sapphire glass display for the iPhone 6. The material is said to beat the currently used gorilla glass in terms of well, everything. Ever since pictures surfaced claiming to showcase the smartphone’s front facade, it was only a matter of time before the internet got around to doing what it does best i.e. to brutalize the material. And we were not disappointed. A video appeared a couple of days back showing the flexibility of the material, but it seemed incomplete. Well folks, a new video has surfaced in which our friends from China carry out a range of ‘tests’ on the alleged front panel of the iPhone 6.

Alleged Front Panel Of The iPhone 6 Brutalized – Set On Fire Amongst Other Things

The Chinese testers in the video above do everything in their capability to punish the front panel. Starting from a simple coin being used to test the screen, they move on towards other, more extreme methods to punish the display. The front panel of the iPhone 6 is then scratched with keys and a paper cutter, which it bears bravely. Next on the list of the testers is a hammer which also fails to impress both us and the front panel. Same is the case for a nail being hammered into the display. The display however seems to have had enough once the testers run it over with a car. It even suffers the wrath of a flame with perseverance, with not facing a single deformity when a lighter is held under it. Thats all we have for you today on the iPhone 6 folks. Stay tuned for more, and let us know in the comments box about the video. Cheers.

As the period in which Apple is expected to launch the next iPhone 6 gets nearer, we get to see more and more mockups of the device. We’ve covered several of these ourselves as well. But, whatever the case may be, mockups will remain to be mockups. What we have for you today is what webiste 9to5Mac claims to be actual pictures of the upcoming iPhone 6. Not of the entire device of course, but of it’s front facade. The pictures are both in black and white variations. They allow us to get a much better look at what the upcoming iPhone 6 can be expected to look like. In fact, appearance of these pictures might also be able to provide us with the ability to guess at the launch date of the device.

A recent leaked image of iPhone 6 display component is suggesting some major design overhaul. The iPhone 6 leaked image shows the digitizer of an iPhone 4s, iPhone 5s, and the iPhone 6 side by side. The image shows that iPhone 6 would sport a bigger display, however, the size would be similar to the iPhone 5!iphone 6 leaked image

How is that possible? Well, seems like Apple may have decided to go bezel-less with iPhone 6. It may sport a lager display but this wouldn’t affect the size of the smartphone. This bigger display is achieved by removing the side bezels and also increasing the screen estate vertically.
