Crystal Baller: ARM-based Macs and 5 other wacky Apple rumors

We get slammed 24/7 with new Apple rumors. Some are accurate, most are not. To give you a clue about what’s really coming out of Cupertino in the future, we’re busting out our rumor debunker each week to blow up the nonsense.

    The iWatch if/when released will be round, the iPhone 6 logo will NOT glow, and a low-budget iMac makes about as much sense as the rumor last year of the 5c being a low-budget iPhone. Oh, and there never will be an iTV released from Apple, ever.

      They MIGHT do what they did with Macbook Airs and shave $100 off.. but I wouldn’t call it ‘budget’.. just an incremental price drop..

        Last time I checked, which was a couple months ago, on the surface iMac’s have a lower initial price, but when I priced out the exact same options that I got for my iMac (ordered in late 2012 with the 3TB fusion drive) it was actually more expensive by over $200.

        So you might see a price reduction for iMacs if you just order the base model, but in reality, it might not actually be a price reduction because few people just get the bare bones.

    What about if the glowing apple logo will function as a soft flash? And the the flash beside the camera will function as photo-/flashlight

    Apple never sells to the bottom feeders. Those who do are commoditizing their products. Apple’s own products will never be commodities. They are always going to be high end products that generate lust to buy.

    A glowing Apple logo will interfere with the camera by throwing off light that will change the light balance.

    Nobody has said a word on this, but the aluminum shell for iPhone 6 has a ridiculous paint job (near top and bottom) that outlines where the antenna would be. I don’t understand why they don’t just leave it looking like the current iPod Touch and just leave it all aluminum. It’s a cheap freaking design compared to the iPhone 5S, why are they trying to put lipstick on a pig?

    • Demonstr8r

      You do realize that this is a fake, right?

      • mahadragon

        I’ve seen reports from sources that consistently get rumors right and those aluminum shells all look identical to this one.

      • Demonstr8r

        Well, for one the iPod Touch does not have cellular, but again, let’s wait and see in September.
