ios-8-blocks-FSMdotCOMIn less than an hour Apple will begin its keynote at WWDC 2014 where its expected to unveil iOS 8OS X 10.10, potential new hardware, a home automation platform. In the meantime let’s take a look at a new iOS 8 concept. This is really a full blown iOS 8 concept with the rumored healthbook.app and all the bells and whistles, but it introduces a new element: blocks. Basically the concept takes Android’s widgets and Windows Phone’s live tiles and combines them into a really nice pinch-to-zoom action. For example, what to peek at what’s the weather like without having to open the app? Just pinch-to-zoom on the icon to reveal the info.

apple-swift-FSMdotCOMAlongside OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8, probably the biggest announcement today was Apple’s new Programming language, Swift. Craig Federighi said today on stage at WWDC 2014 that Apple is trying to build a language that doesn’t have the “baggage” of Objective-c. The programming language comes from NeXT and has formed the basis of OS X and eventually iOS.

iphone-6-4k-concept-FSMdotCOM

Let’s take a break from all the iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 Yosemite related articles and and take a look at a new iPhone 6 concept. Today’s concept shows a 5-inch Retina+ screen with a resolution of 2272 x 1280, stereo speakers at both the bottom and top of the device, IR blaster, 5MP FaceTime Camera capable of recording 1080p video and 13MP iSight camera capable of 4k video recording and 240fps 1080p slo-mo. This concept is somewhat consistent with the rumors surrounding Apple’s next flagship smartphone, but it has one major flaw…. there’s no microphone. Or people still don’t know that the iPhone doesn’t have two speakers at the bottom? The left one is a microphone while the right one is the speaker. One other thing… now, that we know exactly what iOS 8 looks like, let’s integrate its UI in the concepts and stop making up stuff. Keep the bells, whistles and unicorns for other things like 4K video recording and stereo speakers.  That being said this is still a concept ( NOT proof of concept ) and it’s pretty damn nice.
