9to5Mac (click link to read) is reporting that the staff training for iCloud and iOS 5 may just be around the corner following shots from an internal RetailMe application used by staff. As 9to5 point out, this time may be different to previous evidence but staff training usually precedes a couple of weeks or so before a release.
We will post if we see or hear anything else.
Check out this video of what is being claimed to be a leaked webpage from Apple for the new iPhone 5. Check out while you can as my guess is that Apple will get this off the web pretty quickly!
BGR have been testing iOS 5 and giving daily updates of Living with the operating system. And the feedback is good with BGR declaring iOS 5 the one to beat. With features such as iMessage beating Blackberry’s BBM service, the notifications app working so well, the Reminders App and tweaks to Mail all cited as filling the gaps that iOS previously had.
Can’t wait for a consumer version, hopefully it will be even better. Also check out 9to5Mac for various other features they are constantly discovering within iOS 5.
UPDATE: Mayor Gilbert Wong has been quoted as saying that the Apple plans for their new Campus will be suppoted. “There is no chance we are saying no” to the Mothership, Wong said.
Steve Jobs presented plans to the Cupertino Council for a new Apple Campus.The campus will centre on a huge circular building with some ancilliary parking , R&D and Leisure buildings. The site will also focus on increasing the green space with an increase in trees and decrease in developed floor space.
Take a look at the presentation below. Looks pretty special and they have obviously taken time to consider the environmental issues facing such a large development including energy usage where they plan on using the national grid as a backup to an on site natural gas energy system.
Super charged voice control features from iOS have been muted for a little while now but there was no announcement yesterday with the outing of iOS5 and it’s main features. However, it was mentioned that iOS would have a lot more new features and tweaks. Could a superior voice control system be on its way?
Since Apple acquired Siri last year and rumours of detailed talks between voice recognition experts Nuance, along with Nuance software creeping in to OS X Lion all points to a big new feature on it’s way.
But why no annoucnement yesterday. Well the answer there could be very simple and that is “iPhone 5”! Apple is rumoured to be prepping the new device to be released later this year in the Autumn. Do not be surprised if that is alongwide the new iPod announcements which come in the Fall, cioncidentally when iOS 5 should be released. With Apple looking to play hard with Android, why would they out all the new features now when there will be lots to talk about over a new iPhone as well?
Excited? Tell us about it!
The video of todays Apple Keynote is now available for one and all (with internet access 😉 ) from the Apple website.
Digitimes are reporting that Apple has acquired 200-300 glass cutting machines to produce curved screens for the new iPhone 5. Apple are reportedly acquiring the machines as there is little appetite from manufacturers to do so given the high amount of capital involved.
It would be quite a departure for the iPhone design and harks to the former iPod Nano screen and design which of course was not touch screen.
What do you think, please leave some comments with your thoughts.
