AppleInsider reports today that according to a new research note from Jun Zhang of Rosenbatt Securities, Apple is set to upgrade the charging circuitry in the 2018 iPhone line-up from 5V 2A to 9V 2A and 5V 3A. Zhang says that Apple wants to do this in order to “support more applications, provide a quicker recharge, and better compete with Android OEMs.”

Zhang says that Apple will achieve this aim by giving Power Integrations the exclusive contract to supply fast-charging chipsets for the new phones. He adds that once Power Integrations fixes an unnamed quality issue, it will then take over from ON Semiconductor and NXP Semiconductor as “the main provider for the charging solution for all new iPhones and iPads.”

Zhang also stated that Texas Instruments will replace...

Lost iPhone X Goes on a fantastic river journey.jpeg

It’s been a while since we had a good iPhone endurance story, so it’s great to see that 9to5 Mac has a really heartwarming one today about an iPhone X that went on a fascinating and mysterious river journey and lived to tell the tale, before being reunited with its delighted owner!

The phone in question was found by YouTuber Dallas, who has a YouTube channel called "Man + River" where he posts videos of his “river treasure dives.” Aside from the sheer joy of adventuring that inspires Dallas to go on his diving expeditions, he also likes the fact that he’s able to return lost property to owners if at all possible.

In his latest video, “I Found an iPhone X Underwater in the River!!! (iPhone Returned to Owner – BEST REACTION EVER!),” he tells the story of “one of my...

Apple taking cautious approach to 2018 iPhone component orders.jpeg

According to a new report from Nikkei, via MacRumors, Apple is taking a “cautious approach” with 2018 iPhone component pre-orders, and has therefore asked for its suppliers to manufacture “around 20% fewer” components for its new iPhones.

Nikkei says that according to its four sources in Apple’s supply chain, Apple has placed orders for production of 80 million iPhones in 2018, which is down from orders for 100 million that it placed in 2017.

This latest report from Nikkei also ties in with recent reports from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that all three new iPhones will ship in September 2018. Nikkei’s source says that while previous reports of low yields for the new LCD iPhone were true at one point, the situation is now...

As expected, Apple has today announced iOS 12, macOS Mojave, and watchOS 5 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California. While there had been rumours of some hardware announcements also today, when Apple CEO Tim Cook took to the stage at the McEnery Convention Center to kick off the keynote he soon dispelled any such rumours by saying that today would be all about the software, and indeed it was!

The big reveal of the day was of course iOS 12, with Cook handing over the reins to Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering for the in-depth look at the new software.

The first impressive detail to be announced by Federighi was that iOS 12 would have exactly the same support base in terms of devices as iOS 11,...
