This time, we have supply-chain sources in China to appreciate for speeding adult a news day. In IT Blogwatch, bloggers trim with Mr. Occam’s lex parsimoniæ. [You’re dismissed -Ed.] <!– Not to mention: XXXXXXXXXXXX… –>

It’s time for a Chinese gossip indent to grub another bag of corn. 任珮云 is mislaid in translation, in 《外資》大和證：IPHONE明年H1底部撈魚、H2鯉躍龍門，首選4美:

iPhone 4Q shipments this year are in line with expectations, though for a initial entertain [have] been revised down. … The categorical reason causing a shipments to be revised are:
1. tellurian uncertainties
2. direct is some-more indolent than expected, generally for a iPhone 6S / 6S+
3. adverse unfamiliar exchange, quite in rising markets
But direct in a second half has an confident bias. Mainly due to a figure and a distance of a new, upgraded iPhone. For example, dual-lens, 3D touch, softened acoustics, CPU, and waterproof features.
OK, though we’re many meddlesome in a iPhone 7 rumors. Mitchel Broussard unpicks them—‘iPhone 7′ Waterproof Rumors Persist Amid Claims of Hidden Antenna Bands:

His embankment is suspect, though Gordon Kelly has engaging commentary. Here he is, with New iPhone 7 Details Reveal 3 Radical Design Changes:

[How?] In Jun 2015 Apple was postulated a obvious for ‘Non-capacitive or radio-frequency-transparent materials with anodized steel appearance.’ … Apple records a material’s finish has “an fabrication steel oxide layer”…I think ‘Scratchgate’ could turn a thing.
I’d be strongly prone to be confident on all 3 happening.
Yes, yes, though what about a recover date? Val Powell offers iPhone 7 Rumors Pour In:
