Taking a demeanour behind during another week of news from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop looks during a benchmarking between a iPhone 6 and a Galaxy S6, Samsung will be provision A9 chips to Apple, wireless charging on a subsequent iPhone, happy birthday iPad, Outlook updates itself on iOS, and since a ‘iPhone killer’ is indeed a Apple Watch.
Apple Loop is here to remind we of a few of a really many discussions that have happened around Apple over a final 7 days (and you can read our weekly digest of Android news here on Forbes).
Bigger Is Not Always Better As iPhone Defeats Galaxy
It’s not always about a money, or a specifications, though now a iPhone 6 hardware can be tested opposite a Samsung Galaxy S6 range, there are some extraordinary quirks in a numbers. Gordon Kelly has taken a demeanour during a differences in graphical speed on a dual handsets,
What a tests during a commencement of Mar found were that Samsung’s new Exynos 7420 chipset, that is during a heart of both a Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, beaten a Apple A8 that is inside a iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The problem? That was only a exam of a chipset, not a chipset inside a phone. So what is AppleInsider pinning a large turnaround on? Screen resolution. In a nutshell: it takes a vastly larger beyond to expostulate a QHD (2560 x 1440) panels inside both new Samsung phones. The panels competence be some-more energy efficient, though that’s apart to a direct they place on other components.
The S6 competence have a biggest numbers, though Apple is distant some-more focussed on creation something that works in a hand, rather than as a selling bullet indicate to sell a handset.
Samsung Slips Inside Apple’s Latest Hardware
Bloomberg is reporting that Samsung’s semi-conductor business has won a agreement to build a A9 System on Chip for a next-generation iPhone. This will positively assistance Samsung’s altogether income during 2015, charity a certain turn of financial comfort if a Galaxy S6 sales do not live adult to expectations:
Samsung will start creation Apple A9 processor chips during a Giheung plant in South Korea, a people said, seeking not to be identified since a agreement hasn’t been discussed publicly. Additional orders will go to Samsung’s partner Globalfoundries Inc., according to another chairman informed with a arrangement.
Winning this sequence from Apple will assistance a world’s second-largest chipmaker miscarry opposite TSMC, that final year finished Samsung’s corner over contracts to make iPhone and iPad chips. Both manufacturers have increased collateral expenditures to benefit business from Apple and Qualcomm Inc. in a some-more than $300 billion semiconductor industry.
Get Ready For A Wireless Charging iPhone
With Apple’s yearly recover report of a iPhone, it’s roughly guaranteed that a pattern of a iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus is being finalised for production. That means that Jony Ive and his group will be looking to a iPhone 7 (and potentially a 7 Plus or a 7 Mini) and what can be combined to a ‘almost magical’ experience.
Given a pursuit listings around Santa Clara, it’s a good gamble that wireless charging is going to underline on the subsequent era iPhone:
Apple is employing for a Santa Clara-based Senior Wireless Charging Design Engineer with a perspective to operative on new energy government technologies… I consternation if the increased potency of iOS would concede a smaller battery to broach a same volume of using time? If so Apple could scapegoat some of a battery volume for a wireless charging layer. Given a ‘battery layer’ proceed demonstrated during a new MacBook launch, maybe a final covering of a subsequent iPhone battery will be a wireless charging circuit?
