Rumors: Apple starts manufacturing iPhone 6

The iPhone 5S and particularly 5C (the colored version) did provide some new aspects but largely they were just the good ol’ iPhones in a new case with a new name. So it would be wise to suggest that iPhone 6 carries a lot of burden. And that Apple won’t ignore the heed of users to make some big changes. 
It's rumored that we'll be seeing a  4.8 inch display , this news comes courtesy of some supply chain leaks that fell into the hands of the Wall Street Journal.

In simple words, the internet is going nuts with rumors, speculations, assumptions and lies. So we have taken the reliable news and separated it from mere speculation. Let’s begin looking at the facts and rumors objectively.   


Hype of iPhone 6

Some recent reports and surveys conducted throughout the US show that iPhone 6 is the most anticipated iPhone of all times. If you thought the excitement and the buildup to iPhone 5S was great, then you are in for a big surprise!

There were similar rumors in 2013. Many thought that iPhone 6 would debut that didn’t happen. Historically, since the 3G came out, it has been a trend that the “S” model always comes up between the releases to two ‘whole numbered’ iPhone. So now in 2014, the platform is all set. We can be sure to see the release of iPhone 6 in 2014.

What we know for sure

According to many reliable sources, it has been learned that Apple’s main iPhone manufacturing partner Pegatron have already started manufacturing the hardware of the phone. It has been learned that they are not giving official statements due to some legal (or presumably commercial) reasons.

One thing we are sure about is that iPhone 6 will definitely debut in 2014. All the evidence, rumors, history, statements and market strategies suggest that iPhone will be released this year. So it is only the matter of confirming the date. It is still unclear that what will be the release date of iPhone 6, even which portion of the year can we expect is not final.

The other thing we can surely say is that Apple would definitely step up their game. Apple know very well that they are going up against Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8, so they have to come up with something ‘daunting’. It is no secret that Android and Windows 8 phones have downed the popularity of iPhone.  And Apple haven’t helped their cause by holding back major changes. So now is the time to regain the lost glory for Apple. All the experts with inside connections are pointing to the fact that iPhone 6 is going to be a major diversity amongst iPhones.

 Rumors that make sense

Many believe that iPhone 6 will have a bigger screen. It is a must if you ask me. Only a bigger screen can give iPhone 6 a chance to compete alongside Android and Windows 8 giants. So the expectations of a big screen are very reasonable.

We can expect a major design revamp as well. Many say it would take out the value of the iPhone design – “it’s a vintage, it’s a classic!” agreed, but it is also getting old. In tech industry things move very fast. And Apple’s rigidity is seen as one of the most common causes of iPhone falling behind Android. Some techies are suggesting that we may see a bigger iPhone with many ‘Samsung-like’ features.

It is rumoured that iPhone 6 will cost a lot. In fact, I would bet my life on this “rumor”. It is not a rumour; it can be classified as a fact about iPhone 6. Jokes apart, you can expect premium pricing for iPhone 6 – not just in US but anywhere in the world.

Seven Innovations which Changed How the World Does Business

Business has existed, in one form or another, since the discovery of agriculture. From subsistence trade to highly specialized labor division, business has driven the development of society as we know it. Few changes to the way business is done, however, rival the impact these seven innovations had on the world of commerce:

Even the earliest businesses had to transport goods from one place to another, and now modern technology has progressed transportation to the point where we can haul, ship, or fly goods all over the world. Transportation innovations have expanded the geographical reach of certain businesses, creating the global economy we see today.


Industrial Robotics
The Industrial Revolution thrust the world into a new age of mass manufacturing and assembly-line production. The introduction of industrial robotics in the late 1960’s created a new manufacturing environment, increasing productivity, and could easily be likened to a second Industrial Revolution. Businesses were finally able to meet increasingly high demand for goods, ushering in an era of robotic workers and even faster production rates.

MBA Programs
In the late 19th century, business owners desired to take a more scientific approach to management, and the MBA was born. MBA programs teach business theory as well as offer students a well-rounded education in the practical side of business, including subjects such as finance, marketing, and operations management. According to a curriculum consultant for MBA programs in Denver, these programs are designed to prepare graduates for the realities of modern business as well as train future business leaders in a way that they hope will improve business practices worldwide.

Computers changed the storage of information and increased the ease of access to that information. Data processing originally required many employees and were subject to human error. By the late 1970’s, computers were regularly being used in businesses, and their use has continued to increase into our modern age. Now a computer is a staple requirement for any business to function.

Use of the internet has revolutionized business communications and marketing outreach. Today’s modern business can function almost entirely through the use of the internet with innovations like instant messaging, email, and cloud storage.

Wireless internet access has changed the way businesses connect to the internet and increased the capability for remote office access. Businessmen and women are no longer tied to their physical offices. Though most businesses still make use of an office, management and office administration can now be handled anywhere with the invention of wireless internet, and offices are easier to set-up without the need for each employee work station to be hard wired into the local servers.

Mobile Devices
Cell phones and tablets have increased productivity outside the office. Business owners, management, and employees have access to email, web activity, and even remote server access from just about anywhere. Many cell phones and tablets allow for access through 4G networks broadcast by cell towers eliminating the necessity of WiFi access.

Without these innovations, the world of business would look very different today. It would more closely resemble the business worlds of yesteryear where limited access to business operations reduced productivity capabilities.
