As the old year winds down a sense of hope arises that the hints and inklings of new products and services that have been leaking out over the past months may actually materialise in the New Year. Some of them are products that vendors have solidly promised and assigned release dates to, some are part of vaguely marked road maps and some are simply pipedreams fuelled by persistent rumours. Others are services or intriguing situations that could arise. Regardless, here are some of the ones that have caught our eye and that we hope turn out to be as eye catching in reality.
This is all based on various rumours, but the release of any new iPhone is a much anticipated event. Rumours have the device available sometime next year, as early as June, some say. It might have a radically new oblong touch-sensitive Home button that allows navigating left to right with a swipe of the thumb. Some say it might have an A6X processor, some say an A7. Nobody knows much for sure about iPhone 6 including the name. It might be iPhone 5S. The photo is a concept image from Yanko Design.
