However, in the presence of top-end Android phones and the new version Jelly Bean, Apple is going to have a run for its money on iPhone. Though efficiency- and application-wise iOS is still the market leader, Android is sparing no mercy on its chief competitor in the race for the best operating system. Apple will have to come up with a new out-of-the-box smartphone that once again will change the market trends.
iOS’ launch somewhat disappointed at the annual developers’ event. The interface is more or less the same sans the new features. Apple claimed at the presentation that iOS 6 has more than 400 new features including the new Passbook, the company’s answer to NFC applications in Android. However, it also hints that the new iPhone might have NFC chip built-in.
When it comes to speculations, the new iPhone is waterlogged with rumours. Among many, the new device is continuously linked to the inclusion of bigger screen. Some experts say that the new handset will have a bigger 4.3-inch screen replacing the 3.5-inch display that has been a part of the iPhone line since its original release in 2007.
Rumour also has it that the Cupertino giants are also working on an extra (fifth) row of apps on the home screen(s) due to the increase in real estate of display. It will retain Retina Display moniker with a benchmark of 330 pixels per inch.
A bigger screen is Apple’s response to Android phones that have varied screen size from 3.2 to 5.1 inches. It however, is quite interesting to see Apple sit on the other side of the table. Until now, Apple had been the trend setter while Google was the one with replies. It will certainly be a good show to watch when Apple raises curtains on its new iPhone. Until then, Galaxy SIII and Nexus are the better option with the best tech under the hood.
