Moshi for iPad
  • By Aldo Panessidi


    Leaked images of what is supposedly the housing for Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone hit the Web last week. They show a taller, thinner aluminum case than the one currently used by the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4. The case could accommodate a larger display – perhaps even one that measures a little over 4-inches diagonally.

    In a note to clients, Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI Securities analyst with a good reputation for getting his facts correct, outlined what he knows about Apple’s iPhone 5 plans. Here’s a summary of his knowledge of the iPhone 5 specs:


    • A 4.08-inch in-cell IPS panel screen with a display resolution of 1,136 x 640 and 500-nit brightness
    • A display that measures 50.9 millimeters wide by 90.3 millimeters tall
    • In-cell touch elements in its display.
    • An impressively- thin 7.9 mm case (the iPhone 4S's 9.3 mm)
    • A battery that is roughly the same capacity as the one found in the iPhone 4S
    • An HD-capable front-facing camera that has been moved from the left side of the earpiece to the center
    • An 8 MP sensor and a 5 element lens for the back camera that is similar to the 4S but with a larger aperture of f/2.2 (currently f/2.4) to improve the low-light performance

    Some of this information was confirmed in previous reports by that The Wall Street Journal and Reuters.


    Dispelling previous rumors about the display size, Kuo notes that Apple chose not to use a larger 4.3-inch display because it would require a larger battery and wouldn’t support comfortable single-handed operation. Apple has contracted Toshiba Matsushita Display, LG Display and Sharp to supply the new panels.


    We’re only a week away from the WWDC conference in San Francisco, so we don’t have much longer to wait for a glimpse from Apple’s view of the world.  Recent reports suggest Apple’s next iPhone will launch in September or October along with a new iPad mini.

    The debate rages on over Apple’s insistence that its mobile and desktop platforms remain closed. The Electronic Frontier Foundation published a report calling for Apple to adopt a more open model for its iOS and OS X.

    EFF calls Apple’s platforms “beautiful crystal prisons,” because they impose unnecessary limitations on its devices. EFF’s position is that Apple is hurting users by shutting out developers in the open source community. It should mimic Android’s open source model as this is part of the reason for its widespread use by so many device manufacturers.


    On the other side of the argument are those who point out that Apple’s closed model is not just a benefit but one of the most important features of its mobile and desktop devices.


    Eric Testorff, a Technology Coordinator in Crossville, Tennessee, points out the benefits of a closed system in the education environment. His position: “Thank God Apple is the way it is, especially with so many schools purchasing iPads. It is good that it is so difficult for kids to download and install bad Apps. Not every school knows how to police that. At least Apple does some of the policing for us. With Androids, it’s like the Wild West.”

    Apple’s App Store model as provides a level of security that is appealing to businesses as well. As an IT manager at a large privately held company said in a recent interview, “When we decided to dump BlackBerry last year, we ran trials with the iPhone and with Android phones. During the first week of trials alone, I had one guy crash his Samsung from installing a bunch of poorly made software. Then someone else rooted his phone and all of his stock apps stopped transmitting data. This was just the trial; imagine what would happen if we deployed these phones to more than 200 employees across the company.”


    We’ll just guess that his company ended up going with the iPhone.


    Regardless of whether your loyalties lie with Android, Apple or BlackBerry, your devices need the protection of cell phone cases and skins and screen protectors. Make sure they have enough juice wherever they go with wall chargers, car chargers, desktop chargers and spare batteries.

    Apple’s Asian supply chain is having trouble keeping up with the volume of orders for Apple’s next-generation MacBook, according to a recent report by Digitimes. They say multiple unnamed sources are telling them that heavier than expected MacBook orders have created labor shortages so serious that some Asian suppliers have had to outsource orders to meet shipment deadlines.

    Apparently May and June are typically slower months among Chinese companies that supply PC components, and Apple’s orders have caused recent labor shortage issues to grow more serious.


    The world is waiting anxiously for the new MacBook laptops and iMac all-in-one PCs to hit the market this summer. Apple’s new notebook computers are supposed to be thinner than older models. Both the MacBook Pro and iMac devices are expected to include new high-definition Retina displays. Apple’s next-generation MacBook Air laptops may be updated with Retina displays as well.

    Just a few weeks ago, we heard that Apple would probably be replacing Google Maps with its own version.  For a long time, Apple has been working on their own in-house 3D-equipped program, and trying to get it ready for the upcoming iOS 6. Now, the street has pictures to prove they might be close to getting it done.

    We obtained  blurry photos has that supposedly show Apple's new iOS 6 Maps application running on an iDevice. (However, the pictures are such poor quality that they could also just be super close-ups of a Google Images screen shot.


    Here are some of the details we’re hearing about the new app:


    • It features a refreshed user interface including a brand new navigation bar.
    • It may have a silver colored theme in iOS 6 like on the iPad.
    • The iPhone version of Maps will have a floating locate me button in the bottom left corner. To access 3D mode, peel back the lower right corner of Maps (just like the current version) and enable 3D mode. Switch in and out of 3D mode by tapping a 3D icon in the lower left corner.

    Since 2009, Apple has acquired companies that could help them put together their own maps app including Google Maps' competitor Placebase, mapping company Poly9, and C3 Technologies, that specializes in 3D mapping.

    Apple has already made moves away from Google Maps. In March, they started using OpenStreetMap, an open mapping service, with its iOS iPhoto app in place of Google Maps (after Google began charging businesses for access to its digital mapping services). Maybe that’s what they’re building  upon. The BGR photos allegedly showing Apple's iOS 6 Maps app look a lot like those provided by OpenStreetMap.


    Here’s hoping Apple will give us a lot more information on its plans at the 2012 Worldwide Developers Conference, which starts on Monday, June 11.

    It looks like Apple’s next iPhone will have a 4-inch display. The Wall Street Journal  has confirmed a number of earlier reports about the new  iPhone’s screen size, and as further confirmation that this is the final word, the paper also reported that the panel orders for the 4-inch screen have been placed with Apple’s suppliers- LG Display, Sharp and Japan Display.

    Rumors on the new Apple’s screen size have been bouncing back and forth for awhile. One minute we hear a 3.5-inch prediction and the next it’s back to the 4.0-inch guess. It looks like the smart money was on a 4-inch screen. Remaining at the 3.5-inch size would have kept the iPhone essentially at the same screen dimensions as the iPhone 4’s that launched way back in 2010.


    Apple's decision to go with the larger screen is, in part, a competitive response to Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone model that has a 4.8-inch touch-screen. Samsung became the world's largest cell phone maker this year, and sold 45 million smartphones in the first quarter. Sales of the Galaxy phones outstripped the iPhone.

    Some would say that it’s about time Apple increased the iPhone’s screen size. People want larger screens. We are getting used to using smartphones for things we once did on laptops - watch videos, create documents, and read maps. Other smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards bigger displays for quite some time.


    According to Shaw Wu, an analyst at Sterne Agee, “a shakeup in the design of a larger-screen iPhone could go a long way in boosting its ‘wow’ factor, convincing fans to trade in their old iPhones for new ones. Not only do users pay for features, but they also pay for aesthetics and design. That's as important, or more important, than features. People love the current design -- but it's 18 months old."

    It looks like Apple is making some adjustments to its current product inventories in preparation for the upcoming launch of the 6thgeneration iPhone.


    Apple adjusting iPhone inventory in preparation  For new product launch
    According to Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu in a note to investors, Apple has reduced iPhone orders by between 20% to 25% from the 35.1 million units the company shipped in the first quarter of this year. Wu now expects shipments of between 26 million and 28 million. With the estimated 8.6 million iPhones already in the pipeline, Apple will have an iPhone supply of between four and six weeks in inventory.

    According to Wu, “From our understanding, the reason for the reduction is not demand related but rather due to the upcoming 6th generation iPhone refresh likely in the September-October timeframe. It appears that APPLE is opting to be conservative with its suppliers to factor in a potential 2-quarter pause ahead of the refresh and also to manage inventory. We believe this helps explain why its June quarter guidance was somewhat more conservative.”

    Wu also explained developments on the iPad front. He reported that Apple is finally increasing their new iPad build plans. Shipments of the device were previously held back due to the supply of its new Retina Display, and the situation has been “greatly improved with an additional supplier.” Wu believes that this will help Apple to better meet strong demand for its iPad3.

    For the June quarter, Wu reduced his iPhone forecast from 28 million units to 27 million, and raised iPad shipment expectations from 14 million to 15 million units. Due to improved iPad profitability, Wu increased his gross margin assumption from 42.5% to 43.5% and forecasted $36.1 billion in revenue and $10.16 in EPS. He’s keeping his Buy rating on shares of Apple stock, as well as his $780 price target.
