• Mobile CRM apps and services for iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows Phones and Blackberry devices to be roll out in Q2 from Microsoft

    Posted on February 7th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    Microsoft announced on Monday that it will embrace rival mobile platforms and browsers with a planned second-quarter service update of its Microsoft Dynamics CRM application, including iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows Phones and Blackberry devices. “In today’s hyperconnected world, customers need to be able to access their business-critical data on the device of their choice,” said Dennis Michalis, general manager, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, in a statement. The Dynamics CRM service update will include a new cloud-based mobile CRM service called Microsoft Dynamics CRM Mobile. Check the bellow words from ZDNet writer Mary Jo Foley to get a more detailed acquaintance about the Microsoft Dynamics CRM event.

    Summary: Microsoft will deliver mobile versions of its Dynamics CRM app and service for iPad, iPhone, Android phone, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7 in the second quarter of 2012.

    Some time between April and May of this year, Microsoft will roll out Dynamics CRM mobile clients and service simultaneously for the iPad, iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry devices.

    The coming mobile components — something some Windows Phone users have been asking about for years — will be part of the Dynamics CRM Q2 2012 service update, Microsoft officials said on February 6. (February 6 is the day when Microsoft is releasing its preview guide for its next update, which Microsoft has committed to provide 60 to 90 days before a new update is available to on-premises and online users.)

    All of the new mobile CRM releases will be ready at the same time and downloadable from their respective marketplaces on the same day, said Craig Dewar, Director of Product Management for Dynamics CRM.

    Here’s a Microsoft-supplied screen shot of what the Dynamics CRM app on the iPad will look like:

    CRM iPad DynamicsThe coming Dynamics CRM mobile clients/service starts at $30 per user, per month and supports the use of up to three devices per user. While this sounds pricey compared to the going rate for Office 365 and its component parts, it looks like it undercuts Salesforce’s comparable mobile-client offering, which starts at $65 per user per month. (Salesforce also has a free Mobile Lite CRM client with limited capabilities and connectivity, as does Microsoft, which still offers Mobile Express for Dynamics CRM.)

    In addition to adding mobile support to its platform, Microsoft also is stepping up its cross-browser support for Dynamics CRM users. With the Q2 update, users will have a choice of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari running on PCs, Macs and iPads. Here’s a chart showing which versions will be supported on which platforms:

    Browser support Dynamics CRMThe Q2 update also will add more social capabilities, making Microsoft’s social CRM components look and feel even more like Facebook- and/or Salesforce Chatter. Users will have the ability to like/unlike status updates on their Activity Feeds and get improved filtering capabilities.

    Users of the on-premises version of the Q2 update also will have access to new Microsoft Excel Workbooks with pre-defined PowerPivot models and Power View Report templates to help them perform quick analyses in areas like product sales, customer demographics and sales pipelines. (Power View, a k a “Project Crescent,” is a new self-service business-intelligence feature in SQL Server 2012, which is due to launch on March 7.) Microsoft plans to add support for these enterprise capbilities to Dynamics CRM, too, at some point in the future, officials said.

    Microsoft officials said last year that the company planned to deliver quarterly updates (two major/two minor) to both its on-premises Dynamics CRM product and its hosted CRM Online one.

    The Dynamics CRM unit isn’t the only Microsoft division that is upping its cross-platform support.

    Microsoft already offers OneNote for the iPhone and iPad; a SkyDrive cloud-storage app for iPhone; a Lync client for Android; a Lync client for iPhone and Hotmail for Android. Company officials said late last year to expect even more mobile cross-platform app support from Microsoft in 2012, especially on Android devices.

  • Top 8 most anticipated technical products of 2012

    Posted on January 9th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    With the fast development in technology, 2011 has brought the world quite a lot of surprises in mobile industry and other industries, like the Apple iPhone 4S, iOS 5, iPad 2, Android Ice-cream, and various popular tablets. These devices have made 2011 a glorious year in the development of communication history. Now, it has been 2012 already. And what we wonder for in 2012? Thanks to Jeff Bertolucci from PCWorld, who have made a conclusion on the most anticipated technical products of 2012. Now, I would like to share my own opinion about the most anticipated technical products in 2012 with top 8 options for your reference. Check the bellow content to get to know the Top 8 most anticipated technical products of 2012.

    Apple iPad 3

    Apple iPad 3If the gossip is true, the next-generation iPad will be a sight to behold. Its most compelling (alleged) feature: a 2048-by-1536-pixel display, offering four times the resolution of the iPad 2’s 1024-by-768-pixel screen and better user experience for users to watch HD videos on iPad. Considering that the iPad and iPad 2 each shipped in the spring, if the Apple Company maintains its tablet upgrade cycle, the iPad 3 is not far away.

    Microsoft Windows 8

    Windows 8Microsoft’s next operating system promises to be everything. Designed to power both tablets and conventional PCs, Windows 8 is ambitious and risky. The new OS will feature the touch-oriented Metro interface that we first saw in Windows Phone 7, which means Microsoft’s “reimagined” flagship OS will be the first Windows version since the iconic Windows 95 to revamp, rather than simply tweak, the desktop interface.

    Apple iPhone 5

    Apple iPhone 5Apple just released iPhone 4S last October as the successor of iPhone 4 with quite wonderful voice-recognizing personal assistant Siri and an excellent 8-megapixel camera. With the edge-to-edge design, the iPhone 4S provides even better video enjoyment for users to watch watch HD Blu-ray/DVD on iPhone 4S. The next generation of iPhone is firmly believed to be more suitable for HD video enjoyment. The rumored curved glass screen and daring teardrop shape are apparently still on the drawing board over in Cupertino. Assuming that the iPhone 5 arrives in 2012, it just might pack the visual wallop that Apple watchers have been waiting for.

    Quad-core Mobile device

    Quad-core mobile deviceSpeedy dual-core processors, such as Apple’s A5 in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, will soon be old news as even faster quad-core chips migrate to the mobile market. Chip maker Nvidia says that smartphones featuring its quad-core Tegra 3 processors may arrive in the first half of 2012. And quad-core tablets, such as the Tegra 3-powered Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, are already here. Qualcomm, meanwhile, says that its quad-core Snapdragon chips will appear in Windows 8 tablets in the second half of 2012.

    Xbox 360 update

    Xbox 360Will the next-generation Xbox arrive in 2012? The latest rumors from reliable sources, including Supersite for Windows editor Paul Thurrott, say the next Xbox is slated for a 2013 debut. Until then, Xbox fans will have to be content with software upgrades, including an Xbox 360 dashboard update sporting a Windows 8, Metro-style interface.

    Android 4.0 phones

    Android 4.0 PhoneThe latest version of Google’s mobile operating system is already generating buzz in the mobile world. Android 4.0 offers a lot to love: a polished interface, improved multitasking, better search tools, and the intriguing-yet-gimmicky Face Unlock and Android Beam.

    Plus, a fresh batch of Android smartphones (led by the Samsung Galaxy Nexus) and a new generation of tablets (including the Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2) are designed specifically for Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Windows Phone 7 Platform

    Windows Phone 7 platformThe Microsoft platform is very strong in the enterprise space because of the management and security features released in 6.x. Windows Phone 7, released in 2010, will be a leap forward for Microsoft, with strong hardware and UI standardization better integration with social networks. Nokia’s adoption of WP7 should also help spur sales, and WP7 handsets such as the Samsung Focus S are getting good reviews. The next 12 months may decide whether Windows Phone 7 handsets succeed or go the way of the Zune.

    Sony Playstation Vita

    Sony PlayStation VitaSony’s Vita, announced last year, includes a five-inch display, dual analog sticks for game controls and a quad-core processor. The Vita will come in two models, one version with Wi-Fi only while the other version with Wi-Fi and 3G cellular connectivity. The detailed price levels of both two versions have been confirmed online: the version that includes both Wi-Fi and 3G offers two AT&T data plans: $15 for 250 megabytes a month or $25 for 2 gigabytes a month, while the Wi-Fi-only device will cost $250, and the 3G-plus-Wi-Fi one will cost $300.

    These are the top 8 most anticipated technical products in 2012. Of course, there are still many other advanced tech products which also are worthy of waiting and longing for. What are you looking for this year? You can share with us your own opinions in the comment part.

  • iPhone 4S News Collection that will Help to Decide: Buy or Not?

    Posted on October 19th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    Well, the Apple iPhone 4S has been finally in shipment and available for all Apple fans since October 14th. It is unavoidable for users and testers to make comparison between this new Apple iPhone and other smart mobile phones like Android OS smart mobile phones and other smart mobile phones. Here, I have collected some test news reports about iPhone 4S hardware and software utilities, based on comparisons with other popular smart mobile phones by some testers. These tests would help you to decided whether to buy the Apple iPhone 4S or not. Check the following tests bellow to get more detailed acknowledgement about iPhone 4S.
    Apple iPhone 4s

    Ⅰ After the iPhone 4S, Android just feels wrong – By James Kendrick on ZDNet.

    Summary: As a long-time happy Android phone user, it surprises me that it only took using the iPhone 4S for a few days to point out that using Android just feels wrong.

    I just made a comparison between his long time used Nexus S 4G Android phone and the only a short time using iPhone 4S, only to realized that after using the smooth, polished iPhone 4S that Android just feels wrong. The user experience was jangling my nerves. The inconsistencies in the interface between apps and the occasional lag doing simple things like scrolling in windows just screamed at me. I hadn’t really noticed it before, but after using the iPhone these things jump out at me.
    Nexus SIn just a few days with the iPhone 4S and iOS 5 I had come to expect operation to be fluid and consistent system-wide. That’s just not the case with Android, and every little interruption in smooth operation now accumulates into a feeling of frustration as I use the phone.
    The biggest area of discontent is in web browsing, one of the primary things I do with a smartphone. I have long found stock Android browsers to be lacking, not in a major way but in fluid operation. That never bothered me as the strength of Android is the number of apps available, and third party browsers stepped in and served my needs just fine. Or so I thought.
    The lack of fluid operation in Android may be due to the OS, or perhaps it is hardware related. It might be due to better apps on the iPhone, or tighter control by Apple over them. I really don’t care as a user; I want the best user experience I can get. The good one delivered by the iPhone 4S makes it clear to me how wanting the Android experience actually is. It just feels wrong.

    ⅡIf not for Siri, would we care about the iPhone 4S? – By Joel Evans on ZDNet

    Summary: The iPhone 4S is selling like crazy, but its hardware enhancements alone are not worth the upgrade

    When I sit two days after receiving my iPhone 4S after several days of its arrival, I don’t have the excitement in my body that I’ve had in year’s past, probably because I didn’t wait in line for hours to get my hands on the new iPhone, not to mention that it wasn’t revolutionary, like previous upgrades have been. That said, the camera is faster, the pictures look sharper, and the phone is much faster overall, and of course, notification center is a must-have.
    iPhone 4S SiriOne really cool thing about the 4S, though, is its implementation of Siri. Without any training, anyone can ask it just about anything. This has proven to be the most interesting part, since my seven year old sent a text message to a friend of mine via his voice and then remarked, “Wow! I didn’t know your iPhone could talk!” Of course, my wife’s reaction was to be expected with her usual, “that is so annoying”, when Siri misinterpreted a statement I made.
    The above has me wondering if it hadn’t been for Siri, would the iPhone 4S be yet another upgrade and something that most users would pass on? Did analysts and reporters initially call the iPhone 4S a dud after the keynote because it hadn’t been introduced by Steve Jobs, who could make a different colored piece of paper a must-have for everyone with white paper?
    I think that right now people hear about Siri and think, “my Android phone does that”. But as they read more about Siri and hear people literally talking to their iPhone, more people will take notice and pick up Apple’s latest offering.
    One more thing: if you’re wondering what kind of things you can say to Siri and what responses you might receive, check out shitsirisays.com.

    Ⅲ Samsung Galaxy S II beats iPhone 4S in smartphone drop test (video) – By Ricardo Bilton on ZDNet

    Summary: As this video shows, a few drops to the pavement can’t save Apple’s latest blockbuster.

    The launch of Apple’s iPhone 4S may have been successful, but how well does the device fare in a drop test?
    That’s the question that gadget warranty provider SquareTrade aimed to answer in the video posted below. Pitting Apple’s latest device against the Galaxy S II, the test nets some fairly surprising results, with the screen on the Galaxy S II standing firm despite being dropped from a few feet above the ground. The iPhone 4S isn’t quite so lucky.
    For smartphone owners the drop test is likely the most important one of all, considering that, besides water damage, drop-induced trauma is probably the most likely cause of cell phone destruction. So if you are looking for a phone that can take its share of beatings, then the Galaxy S II is probably the right choice for you.

  • Will October 4th become the big day for Apple and Apple fans with the arrival of iPhone 5

    Posted on September 22nd, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    Apple iPhone 5 has been a long concern among the world. People have highly anticipated worldwide for what excellent performance AppleApple iconiPhone 5 would bring out. The most reliable date about the release of iPhone 5 is October 4th, while the new CEO Tim Cook will take the stage to host the unveiling. We also believe that the iPhone 5 would be the first big event the new CEO Tim Cook is going to bring to Apple fans. Zack Whittaker from ZDNet had written a post on the information about October 4th event upon the Apple iPhone 5. Read the following reports for the detailed information.

    Reports are circulating around the media wires this morning that Apple’s new chief executive, Tim Cook, will take to the stage and announce ’something’.

    John Paczkowski with the Wall Street Journal’s AllThingsD network, says that Apple’s next event will be held on October 4, where it is most likely that the next-generation iPhone 5 smartphone will be unveiled.

    Hedging on the side of caution, Paczkowski has long claimed through sources of his own that the launch will be in October. Sources say that the iPhone will be made available for purchase within a few weeks after the announcement.

    Update: As Jason Hiner, editor-in-chief of TechRepublic, ZDNet’s sister site, points out, the Moscone Center where previous launches have been made is “booked out” for Oracle on October 4th. Apple previously used the Moscone for WWDC 2011 earlier this year. Whether this means the October 4th date is a busted flush, or it means Apple already has another venue in mind, it is yet to be known.

    There has been wide speculation over the device, which is believed to have changed in screen size and dimensions. Other leaks point to a radical new design, whereas leaked device cases show that the smartphone will remain widely the same.

    The truth is: Apple has done it again. We have no real idea what the next-generation iPhone will look like.

    Apple iPhone 5But while consumers will be looking for the new iPhone, as the highly anticipated Christmas and holiday season seller of the year, analysts and journalists will be looking at Tim Cook, who replaced Steve Jobs over the summer after he resigned from the company.

    Cook will be in charge of the event, and no doubt will take to the stage as Apple’s new chief executive to announce the device. He has to be — he’s the boss. But Cook has never done this before, and will no doubt be aided by other executives to make their own announcement.

    But as this may be Cook’s first presentation to the world, it has not been his first major challenge as chief executive.

    Late last month, an Apple employee reportedly lost an iPhone 5 prototype in a bar in San Francisco. Bad luck struck twice, only a year after the Gawker media storm after the iPhone 4 was sold to the media company. A huge controversy began when Apple security staff alleged to have impersonated police officers when searching the suspect’s home, when the device ended up in someone else’s hands.

    Though Steve Jobs continues to serve as chair of the Apple board, Tim Cook has already had a tough couple of months. Nevertheless, for consumers, the iPhone 5 will be the prime focus for the day.

  • Stanford University Engineering Professor Imagines See-through iPhone with Transparent Battery

    Posted on August 9th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    Have you ever imagined having a see-through iPhone 4, other than the elusive white iPhone 4?  Or have you ever got such kind of transparent devices? Thanks to the Stanford University engineering professor, Yi Cui, now you may have the chance to get a see-through invisible iPhone 4 with the transparent battery designed and developed by him. The following post was written by Christina Hernandez of http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/, which made a detailed explanation of this new transparent battery. Check the bellow content to get a detailed acknowledgement of transparent batteries.

    iPhone 4 white

    Written by Christina Hernandez.

    Forget the elusive white iPhoneYi Cui, an engineering professor at Stanford University, imagines a transparent iPhone.

    Together with graduate student Yuan Yang, first author on a recent paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Cui developed a transparent battery — potentially the final component needed to make fully transparent electronics. “If the batteries were not transparent,” Cui said in an interview, “then the device wouldn’t be transparent.”Transparent Battery

    Because the key components of batteries cannot be replaced or made transparent, Cui used a trick of the eye to develop the battery. He created a mesh-like framework for the battery electrodes. ”Each line in the grid is smaller than 50 microns,” he said. “When a human being looks at an object that’s smaller than 50 microns, it’s not visible. That’s how we make it transparent.”

    The team found a transparent alternative to copper and aluminum in polydimethylsiloxane, a compound used in contact lenses, according to a news release. They deposited metals onto the rubbery material to make it conductive and poured it into molds to build the transparent grids. Yang created a transparent substance that served as both an electrolyte and a separator and inserted it between the electrodes, creating a functional battery. “It’s completely new,” Cui said.

    Now, the researchers are working to increase the capacity of the transparent battery, which is only about half as powerful as its lithium-ion counterparts. And they’re hoping others take notice. “We’d like industry to pick up our concept,” Cui said, “and do the commercialization of these transparent batteries.”

    From there, the possibilities are varied. ”Imagine you have a watch that you want to look transparent,” Cui said. “You can have your iPhone be transparent. You can have your laptop be transparent.”

  • Apple iPhone 5 new rumors: release date shifted to October with unexpected bigger upgrade?

    Posted on August 3rd, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    There have been abundant of rumors for the next generation of Apple iPhone, and since the absence of iPhone 5 release in Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference this June, people around the world have been more zealously in seeking the specifications and the accurate release date of the next iPhone. The most popular saying supports that Apple would release the iPhone 5 in middle September, possibly between September 6 and 15. However, this saying is now facing with challenges due to an October iPhone 5 surprise guess. The latest rumor suggests that the iPhone 5 release date has been shifted to October, with unexpected bigger upgrade than previous rumors anticipated.

    Apple iPhone 5

    The previous rumors all support that Apple is reportedly prepping for a launch of the iPhone 5 sometime between September 6 and 15. And according to China Times that suppliers are currently preparing 400,000 trial run iPhone 5 units with an initial shipment slated at 4 million units, it is great credible for this. However, a recent report from All Things D‘s John Paczkowski claims earlier rumors that the iPhone 5 will be unveiled in mid-September are bogus, quoting instead “sources with knowledge of the situation” saying the next-generation iPhone will be an October surprise, though no hard release date offered. This is much proved by a report which indicated AT&T has blacked out employee vacations during the last two weeks of September, in preparation for the iPhone 5 debut.


    As for the specs of the next Apple iPhone, Analyst Shaw Wu with Sterne Agee recently reported that the iPhone 5 would come with bigger upgrade than previous anticipations. He mentioned that the iPhone 5 would feature a larger screen display than that of iPhone 4’s 3.5 inch screen and thinner body design, together with the dual-core A5 processor, iOS 5 operation system, at least 8MP camera for shooting, a Qualcomm dual mode GSM/CDMA baseband, etc.

    Along with the fast development of technology in mobile phones and telecommunication devices, people have longed more for the future tech products and various high tech telecommunication companies become to upgrade their tech products faster, which enables worldwide users to experience totally different devices upon different tech products. And thanks to ZDNet Author, who has listed out some top 10 most anticipated upcoming tech products for us to make a brief understanding about these advanced tech devices. The following lists the 10 most anticipated upcoming tech products, originally released on zdnet.com.

    New MacBook Airs

    New MacBook Airs

    The new MacBook Airs with updated Intel Sandy Bridge processors Core i series processor are due to hit any day along with OS X Lion. The new Airs are rumored to to feature a high-speed Thunderbolt port and perhaps a lighted keyboard while retaining the same form factor.

    Vizio XVT3D6SP series

    XVizio XVT3D6SP series

    Back in January, the Vizio XVT3D6SP series was our Best of CES winner in the TV category. On top of offering passive 3D and a full-array LED backlight with local dimming, the XVT3D6SP series is loaded with features. Here’s what editor David Katzamier had to say about it:

    “The Vizio XVT3D6SP series is billed as a complement to the company’s new Android phone and tablet. It boasts a custom Google TV interface and a beefed-up version of VIA (Vizio Internet Apps), our favorite Internet TV suite of last year. It also has a spiffy new remote that replaces a trendy touch screen with a much more useful touch pad, a la your favorite laptop PC. Finally it boasts passive 3D (see below) and all of the full-array local-dimming LED goodness we liked so much on the XVT3SV series. Oh yeah: it’s also the first TV announced with embedded OnLive gaming (video).”

    Samsung Nexus Prime

    Rumor has it that the Samsung Nexus Prime, due out late this year, will be the first smartphone to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Here’s what Scott Webster had to say about it on a post on CNET:

    “Keeping with other Pure Google experience smartphones, the Nexus Prime is expected to be devoid of any carrier customization or pre-loaded applications. Rumors also have been swirling that the first Ice Cream Sandwich handset would also be notable for another absence, physical buttons. And given that the next iteration of Android blends parts of Honeycomb and Gingerbread, it’s very possible that any 4.0+ devices could operate without hard keys.

    “The “monster-sized” screen will be branded as a “Super AMOLED HD” display, matching up with previous reports of a 720p resolution. For the sake of comparison, today’s top Android smart phones feature qHD screens that operate at 960×540 resolution, whereas mid-range devices now typically run with 800×480 resolution.”

    Rumor has it that the Nexus Prime (or whatever name the device ends up with) will also have a next-generation dual-core processor running ion the 1.2-1.5 GHZ range.

    Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color

    Nook Color

    While the Barnes & Noble’s Nook Color isn’t a full-fledged Android tablet (with Android Market) unless you root it and install custom firmware, it is the best-selling Android-based tablet out there right now, priced at a modest $249.

    Before the holiday buying season we expect that Barnes & Noble will upgrade it, perhaps as soon as late October. We doubt the design will change dramatically (if at all), but we do think it will get a faster processor and some other small but significant improvements.

    Motorola Droid Bionic

    Motorola Droid Bionic

    The Motorola Droid Bionic is due to hit very soon and will be among the few Verizon phones to work on the carrier’s new 4G LTE network. Overall, it has impressive specs, which CNET editor Nicole Lee summarized back at CES in January (watch her first-look video):

    “Aside from 4G and the dual-core processors, the Droid Bionic also has 512MB DDR2 RAM; HDMI mirroring (so you can view video on both the phone and the TV when they’re connected); 1080p video playback; 8-megapixel camera on the rear plus a front-facing VGA camera for video calls; Wi-Fi, of course; mobile Wi-Fi hot spot for up to five devices (subject to carrier fees); and since it ships with Android 2.2, the WebKit browser also plays in-browser Flash video.

    Amazon touch-screen Kindle

    Amazon Touch-screen Kindle

    Will Amazon put out a touch-screen Kindle? Or will it release an even more affordable non-touch model to follow up on the success of the Kindle 3? Speculation is heating up as we head into August, which is when Amazon revealed the Kindle 3 last year.

    iPod touch

    iPod Touch

    It doesn’t seem like there’s much more that Apple can do with the iPod Touch, but there’s talk of an added 3G option (you’ll have to pay for service) and the possibility of a jumbo Touch that might also qualify as an iPad Mini.

    Sony PlayStation Vita

    Sony PlayStantion Vita

    Sony’s next portable gaming console, the PlayStation Vita, ups the ante in terms of graphics and features. But it remains to be seen whether the $249 Vita (or $299 with 3G) will be a hit after Sony experienced such a tepid reception for the PlayStation Go.

    Due to hit this fall, the Vita has built-in WiFi, dual joysticks, multitouch 5-inch OLED screen, front and rear touchpads, and front and rear cameras.

    Amazon Android tablet

    Amazon Android Tablets

    Rumor has it that Amazon will be releasing two new Android tablets by year’s end. The smaller model may have a 7-inch screen and be something along the lines of the Nook Color but feature a more powerful processor (and be aggressively priced). A larger 10-inch model will allegedly be designed to compete with the iPad.

    Apple iPhone 5

    Apple iPhone 5

    Will the iPhone 5 have an all new design or simply retain the iPhone 4’s chassis and offer such upgrades as a faster A5 processor and improved camera? And will it be a true 4G phone? At this point, no one knows for sure but all signs point to a Fall release date for the next-generation iPhone, whatever it’s called.
