Here are your Apple rumors and AAPL news items for today:
Shell: Images of what is claimed to be a rear shell for Apple’s (AAPL) upcoming 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 have been revealed, reports MacRumors. The possibly leaked images show off what appears to be a near finished rear shell for the iPhone 6. The shell is almost entirely made of metal and includes cutouts for an LED flash and a camera. The images of the possible iPhone 6 shell are similar to other images of a possibly leaked rear shell.
MacBook: Intel (INTC) is looking to have its new 14nm Broadwell processor out by this holiday season, 9to5Mac notes. Why does this matter to Apple fans? Because the 14nm Broadwell processor won’t have a fan. Rumors surrounding the new MacBook claim that it will use a processor that doesn’t have a fan. This could mean that a new MacBook that takes advantage of the fanless processor could also be set to come out before or during the 2014 holiday season.
iPad: According to sources close to the matter, Apple suppliers have started production on the next generation of iPads, reports Bloomberg. The source close to the matter claims that a new 9.7-inch version of the iPad has gone into production. The source also claims that a new iPad mini could be out by the end of the year. The larger of the iPads may suffer from restricted production due to issues with a new, rumored anti-reflection coating that would make the device easier for users to read.
