    The next iPhone is a focus of a number of articles today, from what it might include, when it will be manufactured and some patents around Touch ID.

    We start off with a Bloomberg report that production of the next iPhones has begun. Production is said to include the addition of Force Touch, in line with previous rumours, and the phone is said to be being produced in the same size as the current 6 and 6 Plus. At this stage production is only early stage with volume manufacturing expected to commence next month.

    Meanwhile at Cult of Mac they are reporting that Apple has been experimenting with dual-cameras for the iPhone for the last three years. The claim comes from an executive who makes such camera models for other manufacturers. Before you get too excited is it not expected that they will make an appearance on this years models. To date an issue with system has been blurred images, though this may have been solved recently. The other issue is said to be finding a supplier who could produce them in the quantity required, which Apple may also have found a solution for.

    Whilst not an iPhone only feature, it seems Apple has been able to flesh out its patents relating to Touch ID. Macrumors has picked up a CNN report that indicates Apple has acquired a number of patents from a company called Privaris. The patents said to be acquired relate to finger print and touch screen technology. Of course recent rumours have suggested Apple is looking to lose the home button and move it onto the screen, together with Touch ID.

    Staying in the iDevice world Macrumors reports that Apple has quietly made a change to its Apple Care + for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple Watch products. The new terms mean coverage is extended to batteries that retain less than 80% of their original power capacity during the extended warranty period. This is actually an improvement on the previous terms, which saw protection only when the battery was retaining less than 50% of its power capacity.

    We donít really have any hard data on how sales of the Apple Watch are going, but it seems the people making them expect Apple Watch sales to surge in the second half of the year. Cult of Mac report that a large part of this is linked to the increased yield rates in manufacturing that will allow Apple to get enough units into the supply chain, an issue to date that has delayed their appearance in stores.

    So very much an iDevice news day today but it seems we might be starting to turn attention to the next round of Apple iPhones.


    Cheers

    How to transfer my photos from iPad to computer

    Both PC and Mac has built-in apps to do this job, but not as easy as other third-party tools to use. If you use PC, WinX MediaTrans deserves a try.
