iPhone 5S and Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks Release Data, Rumors and Features

Part I. iPhone 5S Rumors and Features

Apple’s next-generation iPhone 5S (also called iPhone 6) is coming, here we’d like to share the most promising 4 iPhone 5S features.

1. iPhone 5S New NFC

iPhone 5 vs iPhone 5S

According to the leaked specs, the iPhone 5S include an NFC reader, a Fingerprint Reader, a 4-inch 1136 × 640 display and a new 12 megapixel backside camera with dual LED flash. The new handset also allegedly boasts 2GB of RAM, a quad-core SGX 554MP4 GPU, an A6 CPU and improved LTE. It also has a bigger battery than its predecessor.

2. iPhone 5S battery

We all expect things to get a little better with every new iteration of the iPhone, and it seems the battery is one of those going to get a little spec bump. In a ‘leaked photo’, which is apparently from October of last year, the new iPhone prototype showed a 5.92Whr battery, up from the 5.45Whr option in the 5.

3. iPhone 5S camera

In January 2013 iLounge received information that indicated the handset would sport the same design as the iPhone 5 with the key difference being a beefier camera and larger flash on the back. That’s hardly ground breaking from Apple, with the touted 13MP camera on the 5S hardly bucking the trend considering the Sony Xperia Z already has this and we’d expect the Samsung Galaxy S4 to offer up something similar.

4. Apple iPhone 5S release date and price

iPhone 5S release date continue to run wild as a new report pegs the iPhone 5S release for late September. Interestingly, it is believed Apple’s purported low-cost iPhone, which is expected to be priced between $349 and $559, will launch somewhat earlier, likely towards the beginning of September alongside the unofficially named iPad 5. Two iPad minis are expected to be made consumer available in 2014 at the earliest, one also a low-cost version and the other with a Retina display.

Part II. Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks Rumors and Features

Apple OS X 10.9

The latest version of OS X, called Maverricks has been announced and will launched this fall. Mavericks isn’t a huge leap forward in terms of features, but it sees Apple tweaking and introducing content related apps and services such as Maps and Notifications synchronizing across all Apple devices and iBooks now coming to OS X. Also going are the irritating and outdated interface elements such as leather/paper-style backgrounds.

1. OS X Mavericks price

Previous releases of OS X have been low priced and Mountain Lion was even cheaper at GBP £14, USD $20, AUD $21. We’re expecting the OS X 10.9 price to be similar.

2. OS X Mavericks Maps and iBooks

Two apps from iOS, Maps and iBooks, have made their way to Mavericks. Maps includes features such as interactive flyover data, vector graphics, and 3D views. It also provides the ability to send map coordinates to iPhones with a button push for voice navigation on the move.

Maps now integrates with OS X’s Calendar app too, giving users the ability to look up travel times between two locations to prevent them from scheduling anything in that period. Users don’t have to go directly to the Maps app for such navigational wizardry either, as Apple has integrated maps into Mail, Contacts and Calendar. Developers can do the same with their own apps using the Map Kit API.

3. OS X Mavericks Siri

In November, 9To5Mac reported that early builds of OS X 10.9 indicate that Apple is working on adding Siri to its Mac products this year. The report cites “reliable sources” who say that OS X 10.9 has Siri voice command integration that can help users carry out functions using just their voice, like in Apple’s latest iPhones and iPods.
Meanwhile, Apple has brought iBooks and its 1.8 million titles to the desktop, including any books users have previously purchased. The company gave an interactive demonstration of iBooks’ new features at WWDC, which include zooming in, changing font sizes, and adding annotations. Seamless integration across iPhones and iPads means users can pick up books where they left off too.

4. OS X 10.9 New iWork

Apple’s iWork could be getting some much needed attention. Apple has been advertising for various iWork job roles within the company, and we expect that we could see a new iWork suite launched alongside Mac OS X 10.9.

Note: As we all known, data lost happens on each iOS generation. The best suggestion is iOS device data backup. If you lost data when upgrade iPhone 4S to iPhone 5S, you can try iPhone 5S data recovery software.
