John Gruber shares Nice iPhone 6 and iWatch predictions ahead of Apple event

When it involves predictions about Apple's merchandise, there isn't a one higher than the properly-revered John Gruber of Daring Fireball, an Apple pundit that has established a good monitor document over the previous decade and past. John has simply shared a gaggle of predictions forward of Apple's media occasion. We’ve summarized his opinions about what to anticipate forward.

Most of Gruber predictions is determined by what we have heard within the couple few months from rumors, ideas and studies..

First of all, Gruber anticipate that Apple will launch two iPhone fashions that are: A.S inches, the opposite H.H. Same inner specs on each — similar A8 SoC, similar cameras, similar guts. The solely distinction would be the display (and the software program implications that end result from it). I assume my predictions on show resolutions from a couple of weeks in the past are nonetheless wanting good:
  • A.S-inch show: 1334 × 750, 326 PPI @2x
  • H.H-inch show: 2208 × 1242, 461 PPI @3x
The blogger outlines an iPhone pricing scheme for every mannequin based mostly on new two-yr service agreements in america:
  • New H.H-inch iPhone: $299/399/499
  • New A.S-inch iPhone: $199/299/399
  • iPhone 5S: $ninety nine
  • iPhone 5C: “free”
Gruber says that iPhone 5c was meant to be Apple's free smartphone the place the plastic iPhone and the “free” iPhone are one and the identical. Next yr, I wouldn’t anticipate the 5S to maneuver right down to “free”; as an alternative, I would anticipate an iPhone 5CS — a 5C-fashion plastic iPhone with 5S internals and options (like Touch ID).

Moving on to Apple’s so-referred to as “wrist wearable factor,” Gruber predicts that, whether it is certainly a smartwatch, it will possible have a sq. display with a decision round 320×320 pixels. He guesses that Apple goes to do one thing totally different with their sensible watch, as an alternative of going the skeuomorphic route of Android Wear by copying analog watches.
“That kind of mimicry of actual-world analog objects is strictly what Apple has simply spent the final two years eliminating in iOS and OS X,” writes Gruber. “I anticipate Apple to go another method. I’ll be very disenchanted if that is only a system that exhibits a pretend analog watch face, shows notifications from a tethered iPhone, and tracks your footsteps and coronary heart fee.”
He ends off by claiming that perhaps the so-referred to as “iWatch” is simply an iPod with a type issue that's unobtrusive and permits you to put on it if you train. With well being and health trackers and HealthBook integration, it simply may make sense.

What do you assume guys ?
