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.

iOS 8 and 4.7-inch iPhone 6 release date:

With only a few weeks till the expected *huge* iPhone 6 release event, more and more people are speculating about the exact date of the event. Traditionally, Cupertino has always kept iPhone release events in September, but the dates differ. Apple’s new iOS 8 is also set to make to the big launch event along with the new iPhone 6 variant(s). We have already received the iOS 8 Beta 4 build which brings the launch date even nearer. Earlier reports indicated iPhone 6 release date to be September 25th, however, today another source is claiming the date to be September 15.iPhone 6 release

While the date may not seem to matter much to a few, Apple’s loyal fan following waits for the smartphone release event every year. Followed by millions around the world, iPhone 6 release keynote event is one of the few major tech events. This year is even more important as it is the first time that Apple seems to be giving the nods to the demand of a larger display screen catered majorly by the Android based smartphones. Having kept similar design and screen size, this is the first year that Apple will release a larger and slimmer, curved iPhone – if the trillions of rumors and leaked images are to be believed.

Seeded yesterday on July 21, as was predicted earlier, iOS 8 Beta 4 is here with a few new changes and welcoming features. Apple keeps on adding new changes in the beta releases which helps in getting the developer community tuned in with the OS updates. Released last month, Apple’s iOS 8 brought in a number of new features like custom keyboards, third party app support, interactive notifications, etc. Here are the new iOS 8 beta 4 features introduced in the beta release.iOS 8 beta 4 features

iOS 8 Beta 4 features:

One of the first thing that you will notice after upgrading to the latest beta is the lack of the Bug Reporter app. Bug Reporter app was shipped in the iOS 8 to let developers easily file bug reports. Seems like the intense flood of bugs reported made folks at Apple withdraw the app! Other changes include a new Settings menu and a welcoming new controls center look. Here is a list of iOS 8 beta 4 features:

Thanks to Alibaba marketplace, you can now pre-order iPhone 6 ahead of Apple’s official release of the upcoming flagship smartphone and all of its variants. While Apple gets ready for the announcement in September, Chinese market is way ahead of the Cupertino manufacturer – thanks to Apple’s manufacturing partners? As reported, some Chinese vendors are accepting iPhone 6 pre-orders offering the “exclusive introduction to the iPhone 6″. Using the promotional materials very alike to that of Apple’s official website, the sellers have got everything right to tease about the device.4.7-inch iPhone 6 models pre-order iPhone 6

Apple’s iOS is renowned for its security when it comes to protection against hackers and malicious software. In fact, that is one major thing the company has always prided it self on. It has also been one of the major arguments in the favor of creating a device locked, closed operating systems. Well, it looks like that just might not be the case anymore. Forensic scientist Jonathan Zdziarski has today posted slides in his talk at New York which highlight several backdoors present in the iOS. These vulnerabilities are identified primarily as  Identifying Backdoors, Attack Points, and Surveillance Mechanisms.

Zdziarski is also know as the ‘Nerve Gas’ hacker in the iOS world. He has worked on several jailbreaking projects and is a well known expert regarding iOS security. These vulnerabilities aren’t the traditional kind i.e. those that let hackers or malicious software gain access to your device and wreak havoc. No. In this ever growing conscious world of governmental spying on our private data, Zdziarski has discovered a bunch of services which can bypass encrypted data and can be accessed via USB, wifi and “maybe cellular.” He also notes that simply setting a passcode on the lockscreen does not encrypt data on your iPhone. Rather, you have to switch the device off to completely encrypt data.

Every year flagships boast having improved various hardware and software specs majorly focusing on a few aspects including the camera. This year, Samsung Galaxy S5 pleased many of its consumers with the awesome ISOCELL sensor that improved the 16 megapixel camera with software tools to a greater extent. In a likely event, it is very much possible for Apple to offer an improved camera that beats its primary rivals like Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8. That is the case every year anyway when a new iPhone almost always brings an improved camera. However, a new leak shows an exceedingly improved iPhone 6 camera as it reports that Apple is going for a new 13 megapixel Sony Exmor sensor.iphone 6 camera exmor sony
