Will iPhone 7 Plus Become Apple Phablet?

We’ve seen some so-called iPhone 7 Plus leaks and there are various concepts of the future Apple smartphones. We’ve heard about different possible features for the next generation handset. Now we hear some curious rumors about Apple phablet release date.

The rumors come from China just as many other predictions do. However there were not many news about possible Apple phablet 2016 launch. The iPhone 7 could be the regular Apple smartphone while the iPhone 7 Plus could be bigger and remind of the phablets.

iPhone Phablet Rumor Idea Concept

The Chinese sources state that we’ll see a thicker iPhone 7 Plus device compared to current iPhone 6 Plus. What could this mean? Apple might add some exclusive options and specs to make it stand out and catch customers’ attention. Still we also read rumors about major iPhone upgrade in 2017 when Apple is to celebrate iPhone’s 10th anniversary.

Apple phablet 2016 might just a rumor that will be real only in 2017. Anyways, this model could feature some outstanding options [while it might get different from iPhone 7 design]. It could arrive with 3GB RAM, dual-camera support, without the headphone jack [Apple could bring wireless technology to let users enjoy music and movies] and improved design.

Chinese sites also mention AMOLED technology and full 3D Touch support. It’s really curious to learn more about the real iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models. We’ll soon see first iOS 10 beta release. It will be available to developers and public beta testers. The public version will be officially introduced in the fall along with the next iPhones upgrade.

iPhone Hacker Introduces His Self Driving Car Project

There are many self driving car projects created by different companies and people. Such cars could be the innovation of the future. Even Apple is rumored to work on its own Apple car although we hear mostly rumors and not official information from the well-known company.

Have you heard of Geohot car? Geohot or George Hotz used to work on iOS jailbreaking. He is the first person in the world to find jailbreak for iPhone. It happened back in 2007 when Apple released its ever first handset.

Geohot Self Driving Car Project

Hotz self driving car technology is shown off. There is even an application Chffr which gives you a chance to submit your driving data. How does it work? You should launch the application created by hacker Geohot and place your camera to windshield. The camera should record your driving information. The program will understand how you are usually driving and what your main reactions are.

Once the data is received the Chffr app will unload it to Comma.ai website which belongs to Hotz. This iPhone hacker is now trying to create a real self driving technology for those who spend much time in their vehicle. The program should analyze all the data coming from different drivers and this is how it learns.

Right now you can only help Hotz learn since the first beta version of Chffr should be presented in later June. The first kit of the program could be presented by the end of 2016. Hotz promises that the price would be under $1,000.
