Back in November, The Daily claimed that Microsoft was working on a version of its hugely popular “Office” application for the iPad. It has now followed up its original story with a picture of Office running on the iPad and the notion that it is now complete and very close to being submitted to Apple for approval.
Japanese news site Macotakara reports from sources close to Apple that they plan on sticking to a September or October release cycle for the next-generation iPhone, just as they did with the iPhone 4S, and will stick to this release window for all future iPhone models going forward.
Adding to the ever-growing iPad 3 rumor mill, a new photo has surfaced on the WeiPhone forums showing a system-on-a-chip nestled onto a prototype logic board, carrying a previously unheard of "A5X". The A5X chip also includes a date code of "1146", which would peg production at or around November 14th-20th of 2011.
Recently leaked parts purportedly from Apple's upcoming iPad 3 have been put together and the fit indicates not only that they may be near final production versions, but that the often-rumored 2048x1536 Retina display panel comes from Sharp, that a better camera is coming with it, and that overall, the casing may be slightly thicker.
There have been an increasing number of rumors flying around that Apple is set to launch its own television set later this year. The rumors also all seem to think that if Apple does follow this product route, this particular television set will be called the iTV.
Building off of news from yesterday that Apple will be holding an iPad event in early March comes word that Apple has been in a frenzied rush with developers to finish up their iPad app efforts so they can be demoed on stage. Some of these apps may also be included in future iPad commercials showing off the new model. TheNextWeb reports:
Following up on the information iMore received yesterday on potential ZFS hooks in iOS 5.1, a reliable source let us know that Apple has been investing heavily in ZFS appliances from Oracle. (Whether or not this will be made public is unknown; it doesn't seem to be right now.)
Some fresh pictures of a camera-equipped iPod nano have slipped out, indicating that Apple's music player may be due for an update soon. Aside from the camera, the overall design doesn't seem to have changed much from the previous generation.
