The new iPhone set for release in September will have a dual-camera system, pressure sensitive home button, and will remove the headphone jack seen on previous models, according to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg.
The well-connected journalist says Apple will unveil the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus successors in September, ahead of a big iPhone overhaul in 2017. As rumored, the larger 2016 iPhone Plus will have a dual-camera system capable of taking better photos. It's not clear what sensor the Plus will pack.
After years of reluctance to pay researchers for exploits, Apple has given in and is ready to hand out up to $200,000 for critical vulnerabilities found in the latest version of iOS and the newest iPhones.
Apple announced the program Thursday at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas. It starts in September, and unlike bounty programs run by other large technology companies it will be invitation-only.
Apple hasn't even delivered its Swift 3 language yet and already is getting an early thumbs-up from developers for planned Swift 4 follow-ups, which will focus on application binary interface (ABI) stability, concurrency, and scripting.
In a recent post on the swift-evolution mailing list on swift-org, Apple's Chris Lattner, senior director of developer tools, said Swift 4 was due in fall 2017, with Swift 3.x set to arrive next spring. Swift was introduced as an eventual successor to Objective-C in June 2014.
There was a time when Apple CEO Tim Cook wasn't uplifted by tablet/laptop hybrids.
Why, he even called the Microsoft Surface Book "diluted."
Perhaps he's coming around to the idea that a computer is whatever you decide a computer is. I only mutter about this because Apple has just released an ad that suggests the iPad Pro is, indeed, a computer. Here we see it going through various transformations with the help of various, not entirely cheap, add-ons.
The final version of Swift 3.0 will be released alongside iOS 10 and macOS Sierra in the fall, but the fact that Apple develops Swift out in the open now means that we know more about its progress than we do about Apple's operating systems. Chris Lattner, a senior director of the Developer Tools Department at Apple, today posted a lengthy note to the Swift mailing list that looks back at the development of Swift 3.0 and sets some expectations for Swift 4.0 next year.
