The much-rumoured 10.5-inch iPad Pro may be unveiled in June if a leaked stock system document showing upcoming cases for it is to be believed.
The leaked stock report is allegedly from an Apple Authorised Reseller, and subsequently shared with 9to5Mac, and shows an Under Armour Gear Metropolis Folio case for an “iPad 10.5”. The UAG case is noted as being new for June 2017, which would tie in with Apple’s WWDC 2017 conference.
Lenovo has a couple new budget devices up its sleeve.
While at MWC 2017 in February, Lenovo-owned Motorola unveiled the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus for £169 and £259, respectively. If you thought Lenovo was done with affordable smartphones for the year, you’re wrong, according to VentureBeat’s Evan Blass. He has claimed Motorola is planning to release two more entry-level Android 7.0 Nougat smartphones (presumably this year).
We’re less than a month away from getting our first official look at Samsung’s upcoming flagship phone. Evleaks has something for those who can’t wait till then, though: a clear computer render that shows a device that looks like the previous leaked images of the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The phone in the photo has a wraparound display that takes up almost the whole front side and shows March 29th as the current date — the same day Samsung is launching the S8 phones.
Evleaks, who has a good track record when it comes to rumors and leaks, didn’t tweet more details with the image
The iPhone turns 10 this year and to commemorate the occasion, industry analysts are expecting Apple to skip the now traditional ‘S’ incremental upgrade and go straight for iPhone 8. Regardless of the name, many are hoping Apple will introduce some radical design changes with the new model, not least because it’s 10 years, but because Apple has been seen as lacking a bit in the innovation department lately.
We’ll almost certainly be gifted two iPhone 8 models, but some are proposing a third, higher-end version too. We shall see.
It wasn’t nearly as bad as Yahoo leaking 500 million users’ data, but Acer had its own hacking scare last year. Back in June, the Taiwanese computer manufacturer admitted that somebody stole credit card information for nearly 35,000 individuals who bought from the company’s online store. The electronics giant finally settled with the New York Attorney General’s office to the tune of $115,000 in penalties along with an assurance to shore up their digital security.
During their investigation, the attorney general’s office discovered that Acer’s technical support had made serious security errors.
If you think about it, OS X isn’t really a great name for Apple’s Mac operating system. It was just meant to be the next OS after Mac OS 9, but because it has a nice round (roman) number and used all-new UNIX-based tech, Apple has stuck with the name for nigh on 17 years.
According to the rumor mill and apparent slip-up on the App Store, that’s about to change, however. It now seems likely that Apple will change OS X to macOS, essentially reverting to its pre-1999 naming scheme.
Samsung is getting ready to add a new member to its Galaxy Tab A family of slates in the near future. It will be called Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016), and unsurprisingly you’ll see it sporting a 10.1-inch touchscreen.
The Wi-Fi-only iteration of this device will bear the model number SM-T580, while the LTE-capable unit will be the SM-T585. In fact, we’ve seen the T585 in a benchmark back in March, which is how a few of its specs got made public. Now a new leak brings us official renders for the tablet, as well as a full picture of its innards.
Back in December an image leaked that was purported to be of the next-gen Moto X. It didn’t look very credible, being outed so far in advance of the phone’s unveiling, but a subsequent leak from just a few hours ago has confirmed the design of the next Moto flagship, which will come with a full metal jacket.
Now a new report comes to shed some light on the specs. First off, consider this – the phones depicted in the renders you can see here aren’t the same handset in two different color versions.
Sexual preference. Relationship status. Income. Address. These are just some details applicants for the controversial dating site BeautifulPeople.com are asked to supply before their physical appeal is judged by the existing user base, who vote on who is allowed in to the “elite” club based on looks alone. All of this, of course, is supposed to remain confidential. But much of that supposedly-private information is now public, thanks to the leak of a database containing sensitive data of 1.1 million BeautifulPeople.com users.
The leak, according to one researcher, also included 15 million private messages between users. Another said the data is now being sold by traders lurking in the murky corners of the web.
Apple’s iPhone 7 line of smartphones — which are the successors to the iPhone 6S — should be announced in September 2016. But there are many leaks about the iPhone 7 already surfacing, one of which is about the headphone jack being abandoned. And last month this image of an iPhone 7 Plus rendering was leaked on a Chinese website by an employee at Apple’s manufacturing partner Catcher Technology via AppleInsider:
Even though the leak was questionable, the reliable Japanese Apple news blog called MacOtakara said that the “possibility is great” that the image of the iPhone 7 Plus housing and design from Catcher Technology was “the real thing.”
