iPhone 6s to double LTE speeds and be more power efficient

Apple has used the “s” after an iPhone’s product name as a representation of additional speed, ever since the old iPhone 3GS. As such we’ve seen the company retain the same design as the existing model, but with added performance benefits. We’re expecting this to be the exact same case with the iPhone 6s, and today we get a major tip of where this will be focused on.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will reportedly use Qualcomm’s new MDM9635M chip, also known as the ‘9X35′ Gobi modem platform. The major benefit with this change when compared to the current “9X25″ chip we see on the iPhone 6, is LTE download speeds of up to 300 Mbps, and placing the iPhone 6s as an LTE Category 6 compatible device. This chip made its debut on the a Korean exclusive variant of the Galaxy S5 last year, which you might remember as the “Prime” variant from our review. Other benefits with this new chip is that it’s built with the 20nm process, which is not only more power efficient, but also allowing for a smaller footprint, and giving Apple some extra space for a larger battery. Combine this with all of the new power-saving features of iOS 9, and this could be the first “s” iPhone lineup that doesn’t suffer from terrible battery over increased performance.

Apple is slated to launch this iPhone refresh later this year. We should learn about more of the changes that Apple plans to bring later, and especially after the recent leaks show us that the hardware design won’t change.

Action Launcher 2.1 beta adds double tap to lock and “OK, Google” functionality

ActionLauncher_FeatureGraphic_reg01

Action Launcher has long been one of our favorite 3rd party launchers for Android, and as long as you’re a beta tester, it just got much better. The app has gone for some time without any new features being added to it, most likely due to Mr. Lacy’s other great endeavors. We’re happy to see some of the great new features in the newly published beta version 2.1.

LG and HTC have adopted a nice feature that allows you to double tap your screen to lock your device. It’s proven very handy and extremely popular among consumers. Action Launcher users can now take advantage of this feature, as well. A few other great features added to the lineup are “OK, Google” hotword detection (as long as you’re on 4.4 KitKat), Roboto Condensed font, and icon resizing in the dock.

This is one of the biggest updates we’ve seen to Action Launcher in quite awhile, and it’s definitely welcome. Check out the full changelog below, and join the Google+ community if you’d like to take advantage of these awesome new features.

2.1 beta changelog

  • “Ok, Google” voice activation. Requires Android 4.4 or later.
  • Double taping empty space on a Home screen powers the screen off.
  • Option to enable Roboto Condensed.
  • More fine-grained control over where icon text labels display.
  • Option to disable drawing of Cover/Shutter indicators.
  • Icon scale can be configured for items on Home screens, Dock, Quickpage and Folders (previously was only applied on Home screens).
  • Misc. stability improvements.
