Thursday Apple Rumors: Next iPhone May Have Two Cameras

Here are your Apple Rumors for today:

apple-rumors-iphone-cameras-aaplCost: One group has conducted a teardown of the Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) Watch and has an estimated component price for the device, reports MacRumors. IHS iSuppli estimates that the value of all the components in the Sport Watch comes to $81.20. The research group added $2.50 to this for manufacturing costs to reach a total value of $83.70 for the wearable tech. This means that the device costs Apple roughly 24% of what it’s charging for it. CEO Tim Cook has spoken against estimating the price of his company’s devices and says they don’t accurately reflect their value.

Camera: Apple’s next iPhone may have two cameras instead of one, AppleInsider notes. A patent shows that the tech company may incorporate a telephoto camera and a wide angle camera. This new design could allow the company to bring higher quality images to iPhone users while still keeping the tech mobile. The other option is a single camera with an optical zoom, but this may not yeild better photos than a two-camera system. It’s possible the two cameras could be included in the rumored iPhone 6s or the company’s expected iPhone 7.

Analytics: Apple is allowing some developers to test its App Analytics feature, reports 9to5Mac. Developers interested in testing out the new feature can sign up via  iTunes Connect. The comapny will be letting developers in based on when they sign up, with those signing up first getting in first. The new feature will likely give developers a look at how users discover their apps and what all they use them for. The feature was announced at the WWDC last year.
