Currently, Apple has yet to release official information about the future novelty. At this point, it is known that the output Iphone 6 is scheduled for September this year. In connection with the rumors that Yabloko acquired company PrimeSense. Can we assume that the new model may appear “three-dimensional vision”?
PrimeSense company exists on the market since 2005, she has been producing 3D – sensors. These are devices that help you track the location of things in space. All products by this company is not only used in consumer and medical devices, but also in industrial environments. According to Forbes, the company PrimeSense sensors are equipped with more than 24 million different devices.
Apple executives did not comment on his purchase. But, after the statement of Vice President PrimeSense, Tal Dagan, that his company began developing 3D – sensors for mobile devices. All became clear. Dagan also added that this feature in smartphones due out later this year . Now we can safely assume that the iPhone 6 will have this functionality.
Without a doubt, the presence of function “three-dimensional view” on mobile devices will be really very much in demand. Get at least a game with augmented reality effect. In the future, 3D – sensors can be used in user interfaces. For example, in the game consoles they have long been present, thanks to Kinect’s possible to control not only the prefix, but also connected to a TV.
Of course, manufacturers can surprise with something completely new. For example, the function of creating a three-dimensional model of the human body by means of “scanning.” This will provide an opportunity to try on clothes and shoes when buying online – shops.
Be that as it may, Apple is not the only company engaged in similar development. Direct competitors Samsung and Google, are also working in this direction, and in general Google already has a package of patents.
In turn, the American company Pelican Imaging, PrimeSense competitor stated that it created camera with 3D – scanning will be used by a famous manufacturer of mobile devices. And this is undoubtedly not Apple.
It is not clear who should be able to release the first such phone. But, the problem is not only in hardware, because additionally required to develop suitable tools for creating software.
Yet again, Apple makes it clear that focused on manufacturing the most innovative devices. 6 generation iPhone we really expect a revolution in the world of mobile devices.
Another interesting development in the next “apple” smartphone, is a heavy-duty sapphire crystal. Not so long ago in the publication International Business Times was published, that the American company has invested about $ 500 million in this technology.
Apple plans to build plant in Arizona mineral processing. This program is conducted in collaboration with experts from GT Advanced Technologies. The program is estimated to be a significant amount more than half a billion dollars. Such actions can only mean one thing, it’s that the corporation is going to organize large-scale production of glass. Most likely, it will not only protect the button “Home” and the camera lens, but also the use of sapphire bracelet in creating “smart watches» iWatch, as well as protecting the iPhone screen 6.
The main task of experts from GT Advanced Technologies is a new generation of ASF – furnaces, which are used in the manufacture of large volume of sapphire glass.
Currently, the bulk of the best models, to protect the screen, use glass Gorilla Glass. Gadgets from Apple also use them. Glass Gorilla Glass has been patented by Corning. When comparing these two technologies can be understood that the sapphire crystal has more advantages, such as its resistance to scratches. After all, we all know that Sapphire is the second strength of the material after diamond. However, because of the high cost of sapphire glass manufacturers do not dare to take this step. Although, judging from the various sources of information, perhaps the situation may change.

Last summer, the company’s COO Vertu, Perry Oosting, reported that Apple has entered into an employment contract with some members of the British company. In the course of cooperation is planned to study the use of sapphire crystals in future models of the iPhone and iPad. I would like to remind you that Vertu has a range of exclusive models with sapphire screen. After learning all the details of production, the experts decided that sapphire coating significantly increase the cost of vehicles. Be that as it may, Apple has a fairly high potential for technology improvements. Launching a new project, the company will be able to increase production efficiency and reduce the cost elements. It turns out that in the new “apple” models will sapphire glass screens.
So in conclusion, let’s talk about the thickness of a future iPhone 6. According to the Korean edition of ET News, the thickness of the future smartphone is only 6 millimetres. In this regard, the Koreans have designated it as «iPhone Air», that is a very logical.Recall that the thickness of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 is 7.6 mm, and plastic iPhone 5C entire 8.97 mm. In addition, observers publications claim that iPhone case is metal 6.
Of course, to assert that “the Internet of things” will be developed in this way is not appropriate. After all, can always find something suitable, or vice versa. For example, there is little success technology Betamax.Nevertheless, changes occur periodically. Take at least the IT world today. In the early ’90s, and we had no idea that today we will have many opportunities. Then, all that we now provide information technology market, seemed to us a miracle. In this regard, IDC forecasts may well be real.
By design, the sixth version will not be much change, as happened with the 5S, but the size of the smartphone will be more. Would also like to emphasize that the future model will have a large screen. Of the numerous leaks became known that Apple is now in the laboratories tested screens ranging in size from 4.7 to 5.7 inches.
