Its that time of year again where everyone misses Steve Jobs and we look, wait and wonder when the iPhone 6 Air will be announced. What the iPhone 6 Air will look like. The iPhone 6 Air Specifications and how it will compare to the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C as well as its rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S5 and fabled Samsung Samsung Galaxy S6.

The new iPhone could be one of the most pivotal devices in the Cupertino brand’s history – with the the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C simple updates to previous models, there’s a lot of pressure heaped on the iPhone 6.

As per usual, the internet is awash with rumor, speculation and downright lies over this next-generation handset, which is why we spend our time trawling through each nugget of info, debating its merits and curating it into this easy-to-read hub for all things iPhone 6.

According to a survey of 4109 US consumers the iPhone 6 is the most anticipated Apple smartphone ever, with interest easily outstripping that of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5.

Some of you might have been expecting the iPhone 6 to have debuted in 2013, but given the iPhone’s history – from the 3G onwards, there’s always been a half-step S model before the next numbered iPhone – we were never going to get the 6 until 2014. In fact, it will technically be the iPhone 8 when it finally launches… but hey, who’s counting these days?

One thing is for sure, with the Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2 and HTC One M8 now out in wild, Apple needs to be on its game with the new iPhone – and many believe a bigger screen is simply a must.

KGI’s analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has thrown his hat into the ring and seems to think a duo of new iPhones will be released, with a 4.7-inch iPhone coming out towards the end of the third quarter and a 5.5-inch iPhablet hitting the market late in the fourth quarter.

Suggestions of both sizes arriving August and September could also hold water – but only if Apple keeps both products under the iPhone name. If if splits the larger device under a new name (such as the ‘iPhone Air’ as we recently heard it referred to) then a June and September launch could make sense.

Though we’ve also heard that Apple has had trouble finding appropriate batteries for the 5.5-inch device and that as a result it might even slip into next year.

#Apple wins key patent case against rival #Samsung in US

Apple has won a key patent case against rival Samsung at the US International Trade Commission (US ITC).

The US ITC upheld a 2011 decision which found that Samsung had infringed Apple patents in the production of mobile phones, media players and tablets.

The US ITC has ordered that Samsung devices affected by the ruling are banned from the US.

But that ban is on hold while US President Barack Obama reviews the decision.

The President has 60 days to assess the US ITC’s findings, although analysts say he is unlikely to overturn the commission’s decision.

“We are disappointed that the ITC has issued an exclusion order based on two of Apple’s patents,” Samsung said in a statement.

“The proper focus for the smartphone industry is not a global war in the courts, but fair competition in the marketplace.”

Apple hailed the decision, placing it in the context of the tech giants’ global patent battles.

“With today’s decision, the ITC has joined courts around the world in Japan, Korea, Germany, Netherlands and California by standing up for innovation and rejecting Samsung’s blatant copying of Apple’s products,” said the company.

Two patents

The ruling applies to two patents.

The first is the so-called “Steve Jobs patent“, named after the company’s founder, which involves touch-screen technology.

The other patent is related to the audio socket on devices.

“It’s another significant victory for Apple,” intellectual property analyst Florian Mueller told the BBC, “especially because the famous Steve Jobs patent is a pretty foundational patent.”

Four other patent infringements asserted by Apple were turned down by the US ITC.

Ongoing battles

Apple and Samsung have been fighting patent battles for years and across 10 countries.

The fight has escalated after Samsung overtook Apple last year to become the global leader in smartphone sales.

Battles between Apple and Samsung have escalated as Samsung has eaten into Apple’s market share

In Washington on Friday, a federal appeals judge heard testimony in a separate patent case between the two companies relating to a decision last year, in which Samsung was found to owe Apple $1bn (£645m) for infringing on patents.

That penalty was later struck to $450m, but Apple appealed against the ruling. A verdict in that case has not yet been issued.

Separately, last weekend President Obama issued the first presidential veto in 26 years relating to a US ITC decision.

That veto overturned a ban on older models of Apple’s iPhones and iPads because of its “effect on competitive conditions in the US economy”.

Friday’s ruling is widely seen as a victory for the company.

“In a way. the noose is tightening. Apple step by step actually is gaining leverage against Samsung,” says Mr Mueller.

Apple hit by factory leak iPhone5 leak double-whammy as pics emerge #iPhone5c #IPhone5S

APPLE has been hit by a double-whammy of leaked information as online gossip continues to circulate about their new device.

Sources claim the release date for the new iPhone 5S will be September 18, and say it will be launched alongside a plastic low-cost model called the iPhone 5C.

And China Labor Watch – a workers’ rights group based in New York – accidentally confirmed the existence of the ‘budget iPhone’ in an article about poor working conditions in the Taiwanese factory that makes them.

Other sources – which have also leaked pictures of the 5C’s packaging – say the handset will simply be an iPhone 5 with a different shell, and will cost £227 ($349).

Apple gossip has been flooding the web in recent weeks, because the handsets have now gone into production – meaning more potential leakers have access to them.

But so far Apple hasn’t responded to any speculation, instead preferring to stick to its tradition of revealing all at a glitzy launch event.
