Cultcast iPad Mini new logo

Back in September, popular Youtuber Lewis Hilsenteger released a hands-on video of what he believed to be the outer shell of the iPad 5. The video exploded on the Internet, and six weeks later when Apple announced the iPad Air, it confirmed the parts were spot-on.

So how does someone get their paws on the parts of one of Apple’s most anticipated gadgets weeks before it’s announced? On this week’s CultCast, Hilsentenger is our guest — and he’s going to tell us exactly how he did it.

iPhone-6-Coque-Concept-012_converted

Well-known Dutch designer and concept artist Martin Hajek has created a new iPhone 6 rendering, which might just be the most accurate one to date.

Hajek had previously teamed up with Nowherelse to create a stunning mock-up based on the recently leaked schematics discovered by Macotakara apparently showing the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variants of the iPhone 6.

With the recent case leak, Hajek revised his designs to show everything we currently know (or think we know) about Apple’s next iPhone.

What Apps Will Look Like On The 4.7-Inch iPhone 6

iPhone-6-mockup-Martin-Hajek-004-1024x768-640x480

In the past, when Apple has grown the screen of an iOS device — for example, with the transition from the iPhone 4s to the iPhone 5 — Apple has taken pains to keep the pixel density the same. The Retina Display on the iPhone 5 is 326 pixels per inch, just like the iPhone 4s. This makes it easier for developers and helps prevent the widespread fragmentation seen in the Android operating system.

If Apple increases the display size, will they increase the resolution to compete with the likes of HTC and Samsung’s 1080p Android smartphones? And if so, what does that mean for app developers?

This mockup of a case suggests that Apple might be working on a successor to the iPhone 5c, the cheaper iPhone that supposedly flopped.

On display at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, the case appears to be designed for a large-screen iPhone. But that phone does not appear to be the iPhone 6, which is all but officially confirmed to be bigger than current models. The Hong Kong case has a slot on the back only for a single camera flash, suggesting that it’s designed for a successor to the iPhone 5c, which is equipped with a single flash. The iPhone 5s has a double flash.
