The year 2014 has begun and the audience is actively discussing the upcoming iPhone and iPad models. Of the many rumors, it is easy to identify a single direction - about increasing the display diagonals of both devices. But interestingly, the large iPhone 6 seems to many to be more relevant new than the 13-inch iPad Pro.
Apple is constantly updating the screens of its iPhones in one form or another. In 2010, we saw Retina displays and a two-fold increase in pixel density, two years later, the iPhone 5 became longer, due to a far from symbolic increase in the screen by 0.5 inches. And the iPad, on the contrary, "shrinks" before our eyes - the tendency to minimize the size of the tablet is evident. The result is the 7.9-inch iPad Mini. And all of this is a manifestation of the company's well-thought-out policy to improve both of its most sought-after products.
The rumor about an increase in the diagonal of the future iPhone 6 to 4.3 or immediately to 5 inches is not without meaning. Much time has passed since 2007 and the appearance of the first iPhone, and the role of smartphones has changed radically - from an accessory they have turned into a basic gadget. Buying an iPhone and continuing to use a laptop or even a tablet for the main work is irrational, inconvenient, expensive. No one wants to carry a bulky device with them if the computing power of a small phone allows it to be successfully used as a workstation or game console.
And the small screen in this case becomes a stumbling block - launch a game or video clip on the iPhone 5S and everything will become clear. If the smartphone has become the main gadget in everyday life, it needs a spacious display. And then, using dynamic text scaling technologies, we get a universal device for all ages and categories of the population. Or a powerful and sensible tool for real geeks who always want to use a smartphone for something like that, but a small diagonal limits the flight of imagination.
Previously, buyers in the United States faced a dilemma - whether to buy an iPhone with an AT&T contract or still buy a different smartphone, but with a more favorable tariff from Verizon. Get the coveted iPhone or dodge the operator's bondage? Now you can do both at the same time - Verizon iPhones are available to everyone. The situation is similar with 4-inch screens, the market is full of large smartphones, but these are not products with an “apple” on the lid. If Apple gives the upcoming iPhone a spacious display, it will save thousands of users from onerous thoughts. With a natural and positive result for yourself.
With the iPad tablets , the situation is fundamentally different - the consumer audience has already voted with money for versions with small diagonals. It should be understood that Pro models, by definition, are not mainstream, such non-standard devices are the lot of creative individuals, and there are not many of them in the total mass. Everyone else needs comfort and the ability not to spread their fingers apart while holding the bulky unit while viewing mail. Of course, there will always be those who would like to get a hybrid of the MacBook Air and iOS, but even if there are thousands of them, that's nothing compared to the millions of mainstream buyers. The financial benefit is obvious and that is why the iPhone 6 with a 5-inch screen is more relevant than the creation of a new model. iPad that has grown to 13-inches.
- Why rumors about a 13-inch iPad can be considered a profanation?
- WSJ: In 2014, Apple will release the 5-inch iPhone 6 and discontinue the iPhone 5c.

Apple has supported the famous clip on the Internet: asking Siri the popular phrase of the song of the same name "What does the fox say?", She will answer you with "words" from the chorus.We have already written about our five smaller brothers who have become world-famous Internet stars, but today it's time to supplement this list with one more position, which was the fox from the clip of the Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis
In September of this year, Apple introduced a new generation of its smartphones - iPhone 8, but so far the new product does not reach the level of its predecessor iPhone 7 in terms of sales. As shown by research of analytical company KeyBanc Capital Markets, sales of iPhone 7 exceed those of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

The reason Apple desperately needs a new product like the iWatch is economic, according to Robert Paul Leitao, founder of independent analysts specializing in Apple stocks.Robert shows charts that show Apple's revenue has grown more than 1,127% since 2006 and earnings per share have grown by an incredible 2,457%
Today, the most talked about future innovations from Apple are iPad Mini and iPhone 5. In the case of the latter, everything is clear - this is an update to the line of smartphones, but why did the company's management suddenly decide to create a smaller version of the tablet?
