Apple reportedly working on making its own modems

What might be costing Apple a lot right now could pay off in the long run. Reuters reports that Apple is seriously considering making its own in-house smartphone modems so that it won’t have to rely on the likes of Intel and Qualcomm to make it for them. The report cites two anonymous sources who are said to be familiar with the matter. The sources claim Apple has shifted engineering staff that worked on modem technology in the supply chain division to its in-house hardware tech division. Report claims Johny Srouji, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware technologies, has also taken over the company’s modem design efforts last month.

Modems are integral for phones to connect to wireless network towers. Qualcomm used to supply these for Apple before their relationship turned sour. Intel took over but rumour has it Apple isn’t particularly happy with the company’s performance. It makes sense then that they might want to shift to making their own modems. Some of its Android competitors, like Huawei and Samsung, already make their own modems.

Another leaked render shows off possible triple-lens setup for the 2019 iPhone

We’ve already seen one interpretation of the triple-lens setup for the next iPhone. Now, Steve Hemmerstoffer (a.k.a. OnLeaks) is back to share another one. He teamed up again with Indian site CompareRaja to show one with a horizontal setup. It has the three lenses in the middle with the flash located somewhere between the lenses. It has this sort of cyclops feel to it. In front, there seems to be a slimmed down notch that houses the front-facing camera and TrueDepth system. You get a mic at the bottom with the volume buttons on the left and power button to the right. Hemmerstoffer and CompareRaja claim these are “100% legit prototypes” but that the phones are still in the EVT stage or Engineering Validation Test with Apple still deciding on the design.

According to current rumours, only the next-gen replacement of the iPhone XS Max will be getting the triple-camera setup, while the XS and XR will retain a dual-lens setup. For now, we haven’t heard much about these claims of a triple camera setup, but you’ll definitely hear more from us whether or not this plan does happen.

Apple HomePod will reportedly let you make calls soon

Review: Apple HomePodA recent report claims you’ll get more out of your HomePod soon. It’ll supposedly bring one important feature: the ability to make and receive calls. According to iGeneration, their look at the iOS 12-based software update for the device will let this happen, among some other useful features. As long as the HomePod is paired with your phone, it’ll let you make or answer calls. It’ll also help you locate your iPhone, improve translation features, and have the ability to switch Wi-Fi networks without needing to reset the device. If the report is to be believed, this might make the HomePod a more attractive purchase for consumers.

Are we getting new iPhone colors?

You might have been seeing this around but KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently reported that Apple might be releasing new color variants for the upcoming iPhone X-like devices. The five new colors include red, orange, blue, white, and grey. It will be available for the “entry-level” 6.1-inch LCD-toting iPhones. These are rumoured to be priced at around US$700 (around CA$915). There is also going to supposedly be a higher-end 6.5-inch OLED iPhone model that will be around US$1,000 (around CA$1,300) and this dual SIM device will come in black, white, and a new gold. There might also be a smaller 5.8-inch iPhone X coming.

There’s a possibility that Kuo is referring to Space Grey and Silver when he talks about “grey” and “white” but there are still four other new colors to choose from. The red might also be a PRODUCT(RED) phone but Apple usually doesn’t release this when new iPhones are launched. These new changes, Kuo reports, might result in significant growth for the iPhone with the $700 variant accounting for 55 percent of sales.
