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.

Make your Tube travel more efficient with Exits Expert London Lite

Published by at 18:58 UTC, January 13th 2014

Exits Expert London Lite is a handy app for those that regularly travel on London’s Underground system. The headline feature of the app is that it provides information about which carriage you should travel in to be closest to the exit at your destination station, thus allowing you  to be one of the first up the escalator and out of the station. 

The app currently provides this exit information for stations in Zone 1 (i.e. most of the central London Tube stations), with an illustration showing the optimum placement (e.g. when travelling northbound on the Victoria line to Oxford Circus you should travel in carriage 7 or 3). The app shows exit information for interchanges (switching to another line), external exits, and lifts.

Each station gets its own panorama view, with a page for each direction of travel. In addition there are pages for a variety of additional information: facilities, accessibility, and transport connections.

Facilities provides information on the services available at the stations (e.g. whether staff are available, if there’s a mobile signal, information about taxi ranks, and more). Accessibility provides information on access to the stations (e.g. wheelchair access, number of escalators / steps for each entrance / exit, and more). Transport connections provides information on other transport options available at or near the station including buses, river boats, footpaths and the nearest cycle hire docking stations.
