Apple is known to launch a new smartphone every fall. This year we await the iPhone 6. As expected, there have N number of rumours about the new iPhone. Last year Apple brought a new line of plastic body iPhones called the iPhone 5c. We aren’t sure if that lineup will continue, but for the flagship 5s, the expected list of upgrades is huge.

Below is a list of features, we expect the iPhone 6 to have –

Bigger Screen

Phones displays are getting bigger by the day. Today, the average screen size of a phone would be in the range of 4.7-5 inches. Apple has definitely been losing out on customers due to the small screen size of previous generation iPhones. Hence, most likely the iPhone 6 will have a bigger screen. Rumours say that Apple will launch two variant – a 4.7 inches and a 5.5 inches iPhone. This will allow the iPhone 6 to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S5 (5.1 inches), Sony Xperia Z2 (5.2 inches), LG G3 (5.5 inches) and Nokia Lumia 930 Windows 8 (5 inches).

Last week we reported about the progress of Apple music streaming service, iRadio, being delayed because of pricing issues between record labels and Apple. It was reported that Apple was willing to pay a mere 6 cents per 100 songs to the record labels as compared to the industry standards of 21 cents per 100 songs. Even reputed services like Pandora and Spotify pay as high as 31 cents per 100 songs currently which is way higher than what Apple has been offering to the record labels to sign a contractual agreement. Apple’s main reasoning was its advantage over rivals of having millions of users already using iTunes and iOS platforms who will also migrate to its music streaming service when launched. But a report that emerged on Tuesday claims that Apple has almost done a deal with two major record labels that would accelerate its launch plan for iRadio service.

AppleInsider reprots of three different patents filed by Apple that aim at improving the accuracy of pedometer implementation using current devices or any device supporting a gyroscope and accelerometer. Apple’s patent suggest it being keen on creating a dedicated health accessory or to implement it in their current mobile devices itself. Accessories like FitBit, Nike Fuel Band, Jawbone Up and Samsung’s recently showcased watch all aim at helping user track their daily calorie burning and help them in gamifying their daily target for burning calories. Currently Apple provides APIs for users to track a users motion so that it can be implemented in their mobile applications (eg: Nike +) but there seems to be no advanced way of having a better accuracy.
