Silver iOS Scheme Instead Of Blue?

The apps that come pre-installed with your iOS device haven’t changed much in both the look and functionality department, since the launch of the original iPhone in 2007.

But Apple may be gearing up to make at least some subtle changes in iOS 6 such as changing the color scheme used in the pre-installed apps.

A couple of days ago Boy Genius’s Reports posted a mockup of the new Maps app, which could be one of the major new features of iOS 6. According to their trusted source, Apple won’t be ditching just Google for a revamped Maps app with 3D mode, but they might also be ditching the traditional blue color scheme seen across their core apps for silver.

Cult of Mac noticed this change in the new WWDC 2012 app that was released earlier today. Apple has replaced the traditional blue bar along the top and the black bar at the bottom with silver bars.

We didn’t read much into these claims until we stumbled across the Cupertino company’s new WWDC 2012 app. Unlike last year’s app — which featured a black bar along the bottom and a blue bar along the top, like traditional iPhone apps — this one sports silver bars and buttons both top and bottom. And I must say, it looks a lot simpler and a lot cleaner.

The WWDC 2012 app is not the only app that sports the silver color scheme. iPhoto app released back in March and a number of pre-installed iPad apps such as  YouTube, Maps and Mail app sport the silver color scheme.

So it is possible that Apple will transition to the silver color scheme for all the pre-installed iPhone apps in iOS 6.

What do you think about the silver color scheme for iOS apps? Which one do you prefer?

Next iPhone to have Flexible OLED Display?

Oh! Look an iPhone user, just great! We won’t even be allowed to hold his phone, since he certainly will be scared that we might scratch or drop it… just great.

Have you heard this a lot? Well certainly I have, as a matter of fact I’m so protective about my phone that even while in a restaurant I keep a tissue under my phone and then set it on the table. (If you are thinking why I don’t use a case, that is because cases make the phone bulky and they don’t feel good in the hand.)

But well, if you hear this a lot then you would be quite happy to know that the next iPhone might be adopting those flexible OLED screens that we have seen in various concept photos/videos. Well the phone won’t be as bendy as you expect but it will be good enough to sustain injuries by falling down etc.

This technology will be coming from Samsung (just like the Retina display). I personally hate the fact Apple has to partner with Samsung for stuff like this because then the credit is shared and Samsung tries to dethrone Apple, which they know they won’t be able to. (Spoken like a true fan boy, huh?)

Anyway getting back to the news, Samsung’s Kwon Oh-hyun said, ” We will be mass producing flexible OLED displays from the latter half of this year as the demand from our clients is significant.” Though Kwon did not mention any company, Apple is certainly one of them according to a U.S based analyst saying, “Apple is the iconic company in the industry that will continue to set the trends. If Samsung finds increasing industry demand for a futuristic product like flexible displays, it’s hard to imagine that Apple doesn’t have something to with it.”

I believe the sixth-gen iPhone will be a kicker and will dethrone Samsung and Nokia (specifically Lumia 900, other models suck) permanently.

New iPhone 5 parts surface….

iPhone parts supplier sw-box has gained access to few more replacement parts for next generation iPhone device. This time its the Earphone Jack, Ear Speaker and WIFI Cable. The internals of the next iPhone as of now seem to be completely different from the previous generation of iPhones.

These new parts join the likenesses of the possible SIM tray and Home Button which were leaked previously.

Here is the image of the newly leaked Earphone Jack, Ear Speaker and WIFI Cable:

Rumor: The next iPhone to have SIM Tray similar to the iPhone 4S’

iPhone part supplier sw-box has now gained access to iPhone 5 SIM card tray. The parts, however, have striking resemblance with the iPhone 4/4S SIM tray. The part clearly pinpoints that the next iteration of iPhone will retain the flat-edged form factor of the existing model debunking earlier claims that that the next generation iPhone will sport a tapered or rounded-edge design and that it will accommodate smaller nano-SIM.

Last week, Chinese parts supplier TVC-Mall posted iPhone 5 home buttons for sale in both black and white but later pulled them down for an unknown reason. Even those parts look legitimate enough to warrant attention. The new home buttons were rounded square shape resembling much like iOS app icons.

What could be the expected upgrades in the iPhone 5 is still sketchy. Most of the technology pundits claims that the sixth generation iPhone will adopt liquidmetal featuring 4.6-inch retina display with bigger screen, thinner display, dual-core A5X processor, and a rubber bezel.

Since Apple has long been notoriously secretive about its unreleased products and always keeps its future plans under wraps, expect more information in coming weeks through un-official channels. Fresh rumors about iPhone 5 are likely to increase over the next few weeks as we get closer to September-October timeframe.
