In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Jonathon Ive, Apple’s hardware designer, has mentioned that the best work is yet to come. He was asked which design he would be remembered for, to which he responded, “A lot does seem to come back to the fact that what we’re working on now feels like the most important and the best work we’ve done, and so it would be what we’re working on right now, which of course I can’t tell you about.” We can look forward to more intelligent design soon with an almost certain announcement of a new line of Macbook Pros at the WWDC in June.
In other news, rumors seem to be piling up regarding the new iPhone whether it be form factor, release date, and even the name. In a recent report from 9 to 5 Mac, an insider has reported the new iPhone getting a bump in screen size to 640 by 1,136 resolution. This makes for a longer iPhone while keeping the same width. If this is true, Apple would be following the trend that has caught on of having a bigger screen. The Samsung Galaxy Note has a 5.3 inch screen and is more of a tablet than a phone. Cell phone manufacturers like HTC and Samsung have tapped into the larger screen market and must be doing well, so it’s necessary for Apple to compete. Other rumors are pointing to a new, smaller dock connector instead of the old 30-pin one that has been around for many years. One thing is for sure, we are ecstatic for any new Apple hardware!
