The big news in the tech world this week is the announcement of the latest iPhones by Apple and the all-new Apple Watch that is set to debut next year. While we have come to expect the latest and greatest features to be available to us at all times, we often overlook the technology that is used to get us there. The newest iPhones are built to be faster and smarter than ever before and taking a look at just some of the hardware alone shows how.
- iPhone 6 uses a printed circuit board with 64-bit architecture and a motion coprocessor that allows it to deliver speed, graphics and functionality that has not been seen before in Apple products.
- 8-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording at 30 or 60 fps
- NFC functionality and Bluetooth 4.0 connections strengthen wireless capabilities
Could Apple Watch House a Circular Printed Circuit Board?
Not all of the details and inner workings of the new Apple Watch are known and users won’t be able to get their hands on the device until next year. However, that hasn’t stopped tech enthusiasts from wondering just what is going into the product. A prevailing belief is that the Apple Watch will feature a circular printed circuit board to fit Apple’s product design needs. Different shapes, layouts and types of PCBs have been used in the past, and moving forward will be adapted to meet various application requirements.
