Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
Beta: Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has released the seventh OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite beta, reports MacRumors. The new beta is labelled as build 14D130a. In the release notes for it, the tech company points out that Safari and Mail are what need to be tested. Several new features introduced through the beta are also in need of testing. The new OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite beta is available to both developers and members of the company’s public beta program.
iPhone: Apple may not release the rumored iPhone 6s after all, AppleInsider notes. A new rumor claims that the tech company is instead going to release two versions of the iPhone 7. This rumor claims that significant enough changes will be made to what would have been the 6s that it was worth just moving it to the 7 line. One of these changes includes Force Touch, which could change the way users interact with their smartphones. The rumor also claims that there won’t be a 4-inch model released this year.
Patent: A new patent from Apple reveals possible plans for future iPhones, reports BGR. The new patent is titled “System and method for capturing images”. The patent details a new camera that could be included in future iPhone models. The system detailed in the patent would allow the tech company to create a slimmer device without having to worry about the camera sticking out from it. This is a problem that some have complained about with the iPhone 6’s camera. This new patent would still allow for high-quality images to be taken even with the reduced camera size.
