The iPhone 5 still isn’t announced yet, but we already have an iPhone 6 rumor

samsung-nexus-s-curved-glassAre you tired of hearing the endless rumors about the possible iPhone 5 launch next week? Then you are in luck since we have a rumor about the iPhone 6 or whatever the generation of iPhone coming out next year will be called. It is said that the iPhone 6 will have a curved glass display, and that Apple has already found the companies to make the glass displays for the iPhone 6 and next-generation iPad.

We first heard the curved glass display rumor in May, but at that time they were centered on the iPhone 5. As other rumors started coming in about every possible detail it seems unlikely that the next iPhone will have a curved display. Current rumors have two different models being announced, one that very closely matches the iPhone 4, and another slim-wedge shaped high end phone.

There are other devices currently on the market with curved displays, so the iPhone 6 screen most likely won’t be something we have never seen before. One example of a phone with a curved display would be Samsung Nexus S which has a “contoured” screen to better fit the users face when making a call.

We are not able to tell at this point in what way Apple may be planning to curve the glass display. It could be a convex or concave style that would look drastically different than the current iPhone 4 model that is about as straight as a phone can get.

It does seem a little early to be reporting on iPhone 6 rumors, but we love our iPhone rumors so it’s never too soon to start warming up the rumormill.

An official photo of the 2024 iPad Air.

We love iPad deals at any time, but how about an iPad deal on a recently announced model? That’s what’s going on right now at Amazon with the Apple iPad Air 11-inch M2 -- reduced by $29 when it hasn’t even been launched yet. Normally priced at $599, you can buy it -- or should we say, pre-order it -- for $570 today. That’s how new it is. If you’re keen to buy a new iPad for less, read on while we take you through what to expect.

Why you should buy the Apple iPad Air 11-inch M2
Only recently announced, the Apple iPad Air 11-inch M2 is sure to be something special. We’ve compared the iPad Air (2024) with the iPad Air (2022) to see why it’s so great. Effectively, the killer feature here is that it has the Apple M2 chip we’ve seen in more recent MacBooks compared to the older M1 chipset. That makes it a great option for power users who want all the power possible from one of the best tablets.

You’ll soon be able to control your iPhone and iPad with your eyes
The iPad Air 4 in hand.

Apple has announced a bunch of new accessibility features that will arrive later this year for iPhone and iPad owners. Notable among them is the ability to interact with iOS and iPadOS interfaces using eye movement, which is something that's seen in a similar system on Mac hardware.

The company calls it Eye Tracking, and it's a system built on the Dwell Control foundations. So far, Dwell Control has been available as part of the Accessibility Keyboard on macOS, allowing users to execute mouse actions using eye and head gestures.
