Product Listing Suggests Retina iPad Mini Could Launch on November 21

A product listing for the Retina iPad mini with a release date of November 21 hasappeared on Target.com, suggesting Apple’s new tablet could make its debut on the Thursday before Thanksgiving. Thus far, Apple has not provided a prospective release date for its iPad mini with Retina Display, offering up only broad November launch plans.

While the November 21 launch date listed on the Target website could be a simple guess by the company, it is a logical release day for the tablet because it falls before Thanksgiving and more importantly, before Black Friday, which is a major shopping holiday in the United States.

A late November launch also gives Apple an opportunity to focus its attention on the iPad Air for the majority of the month. It is unclear, however, why Apple would choose to launch the Retina mini on a Thursday, as product releases typically fall on a Friday.

Apple’s Retina iPad mini, which includes an A7 processor and an upgraded rear camera, is said to be in very short supply. According to a recent report, stock of the Retina iPad mini will be “ridiculously tight” until early 2014.

Though supplies of the Retina mini will be low, Apple is said to have a large quantity of iPad Airs available for purchase, which will likely alleviate some of the demand for the smaller tablet. Apple’s iPad Air will go on sale this Friday, with online orders beginning at 12:01 AM in the United States and at varying times in other countries.

Apple Says Manufacturing Defect is Responsible for Battery Issues in Some iPhone 5s Devices

manufacturing defect has affected a small number of Apple’s iPhone 5s devices causing shortened battery life and longer charging times, according to an Apple representative who spoke to The New York Times. The iPhone 5s, which was introduced in September, is rated for up to 10 hours of battery life on 3G and 250 hours of standby time.

“We recently discovered a manufacturing issue affecting a very limited number of iPhone 5S devices that could cause the battery to take longer to charge or result in reduced battery life,” said Teresa Brewer, an Apple spokeswoman. “We are reaching out to customers with affected phones and will provide them with a replacement phone.”

Apple has not specified how many iPhones are affected by the issue, but according toThe New York Times, Apple’s statement suggests that only a few thousand users may be experiencing battery life issues out of several million. After the launch of the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c, Apple reported that it had sold a total of nine million devices, but did not break the sales number down further.

While Apple did not give specific details on the manufacturing issue or how it plans to contact affected users, the company will replace defective iPhone 5s units with functional devices.

Burst Mode Improvements Added to iPhone 5s Camera With iOS 7.0.2

Apple quietly added Burst Mode improvements to the iPhone 5s with its iOS 7.0.2 update, reports GottaBeMobile. First debuted in late September, iOS 7.0.2 was introduced to fix lock screen passcode vulnerabilities.

Burst Mode, an iPhone 5s feature, is designed to capture 10 photos per second while the camera capture button is held down, which is useful for getting shots of moving targets but uses up quite a bit of storage space.

Before iOS 7.0.2, Burst Mode asked users to save favorite shots but did not delete the whole roll of photos, while after iOS 7.0.2, users are prompted to choose to save just their favorites and given the option to delete the rest of the photos by tapping a button. This is a useful addition that saves Burst Mode users from having to manually delete multiple photos, a time consuming process.

While iOS now offers to delete photos not saved to favorites after a Burst Mode capture, users can also elect to save the entire line of shots. iPhone 5s users should already have iOS 7.0.2 as it was released in September via an over-the-air update. Apple has also released iOS 7.0.3, which includes iCloud Keychain, new motion reduction options, and a fix for an accelerometer issue.

Random Multiple Exposure Photography App ‘Dubble’ Launches for iOS

New photography app dubble has launched for iOS, allowing users to randomly mix and produce double exposure photos with each other. The app allows users to either take a photo with the built-in camera or select a picture from the camera roll and upload it to the service, which then combines the user’s photo with a random photo from another user to create a multiple exposure image that can be saved and shared through user profiles.

Testing Finds Inaccurate Touch Sensing on iPhone 5s/5c, But Neglects Perspective Compensation

New touch screen testing conducted by Finnish technology company OptoFidelity has suggested [PDF] the touch displays of Apple’s iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are less accurate than the display of the Samsung Galaxy S3, but the testing has failed to take into account that Apple has designed its iPhones to compensate for different usage angles.

Using its proprietary OptoFidelity Touch Panel Performance Tester, which compares the coordinates of touches by a robot with an artificial finger to coordinates from a touch device, the company measured the accuracy of both the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5c, and the Galaxy S3. The video below demonstrates how the testing was carried out.

 

The test assigned a PASS/FAIL score when the actual touch position registered greater than ±1 mm off from the reported coordinates from the artificial finger, marking passes with green dots and fails with red dots. According to the test, both of Apple’s iPhones demonstrated “extremely bad” performance near the edges and the top of the screen.

OptoFidelity suggests that this impacts both top and edge screen functionality, making it more difficult to perform tasks like accessing the Q and P keys on the virtual keyboard as they are located towards the edges of the display, but machine testing does not replicate real world usage, where the phone is held at and viewed from various angles.

iOS is designed to compensate for the angle that it expects a phone to be held at, which suggests that some of the discrepancies between screen accuracy between the iPhone 5s/5c and the Galaxy S3 may be intentional on Apple’s part, in order to provide a better experience for users that are not holding their phones in static positions.

In addition to testing touch screen accuracy, OptoFidelity also took a look at touch screen latency, which was previously examined by Agawi. As with those initial tests that showed the iPhone 5 to be far more accurate than its Android counterparts, OptoFidelity had similar results with the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c.

Testing functionality such as web browsing opening time and camera application opening time revealed that the iPhones were more responsive than the Galaxy S3, with the iPhone 5s registering slightly faster response times.
