  3. IPhone 6S or 7 Rumours

    Forbes back in July reported that a leaked internal email from Vodaphone identified that the new IPhone would be available to pre-order from September 18th .This wouldn’t be the first time release dates have been “leaked” and then subsequently wrong but the date is consistent with Apple’s usual September launches. We’d imagine the official launch date will be around 6-9th September.

    Bigger-iPhone-Rumours-Concept-Nikola-Cirkovic

    Nikola Cirkovic new IPhone concept

     

    The iPhone 6S or straight to the IPhone 7?

    There were rumours that Apple were considering skipping the 6S and moving straight to the 7. This was largely being put down to the fact that the advancements on the 6 were so great that it warranted a jump. However leaked drawings (believe what you will) and latest reports suggest we are much more likely to see an IPhone 6S.

     

    Touch ID

    The next iPhone looks certain to feature great improvements on the current touch ID system. As Apple pay becomes more prominent and is pushed further we’re expecting to see the touch ID function much more smoothly and all bugs to be ironed out whilst security also increased. Whilst this may not be the most exciting upgrade ever, when security and functionality are taken into account it’s a decent upgrade.

     

    Introduction of the A9 chip

    Apple’s rather bizarre partnership with Samsung could see the introduction of the A9 chip. Leaked images from the Chinese production line look to show space for a newly designed, darker chip and it appears much has changed under the hood for Apple. The A9 chip will be much faster and use less battery whilst also providing greater capabilities for improved resolution and camera quality. Again all things you’d expect from a new chip but a welcomed addition nonetheless.

     

    Force Touch

    The latest rumours suggest that the latest iPhone is going to be slightly thicker (0.2mm) to allow for the introduction of force touch. Force Touch, which is used in Apple watches, detects how hard you press the screen and allows different actions to be carried out accordingly. For example during video playback, the harder you press the fast forward arrow will control the speed in which the video is playing. This is one of the ways Apple is trying to improve user functionality and advancements in the next few years could eventually see the end for the home button.

     

    An Improved Camera

    The camera is likely to see a vast jump in quality. The new A9 processor will allow for a 12 MP. According to John Gruber during an episode of the talk show  the new design, which incorporates 2 lenses will be able to perform at the quality levels of a DSLR which will put the new iPhone right up there with the best camera phones on the market. The rumours are that the rear camera will also feature a new microphone which will improve the audio on videos.

     

    Sapphire Glass

    The iPhone 6 was widely reported to feature this scratch resistant glass but cost and production issues got in the way. Could we finally see sapphire glass which is used on the iWatch become a feature of the phones as well?

     

    What could the IPhone 7 feature if they skip the 6S

    A few ideas have been thrown out for what this could feature; one being that Apple will do away with the headphone/Aux jack in their quest to streamline and lighten the phone. All sound would be directed wirelessly or through the lightening port. Another rumour being mooted is that the next IPhone won’t have any side buttons. Instead one side will feature stereo quality speakers, enabling a better sound & video experience in landscape whilst the other side will feature touch sensitive areas which will control features on the phone.

    Whilst these are pretty cool new features it looks like we won’t see them this time around unfortunately.  Instead an IPhone 6S release looks far more probable. Despite rumours of 3 different sized models it looks like Apple will stick with the 2 for now but we could see a slight variant in size. Whilst none of these updates appear to ground-breaking, this is generally the norm with IPhone S updates & the upgrades will definitely provide a much faster, smoother and efficient beefed up version of the IPhone 6. Whilst the foundations appear to have been laid to seeing a vastly improved and differently designed IPhone 7.

  5. Exploring Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast

    Exploring Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, its many islands and thriving nightlife

    Croatia Hvar dalmatian coast

     

    Since its arrival into the European Union, Croatia has quickly become one of Europe’s most popular summer destinations. Attracting visitors from all over the globe, the  Dalmatian islands are a popular stop on the European travel circuit with Australians, Americans and South Africans, whilst also attracting visitors from all over Europe. Croatia’s Dalmatian coast has for a long time been famed for its beauty, crystal clear waters and national parks (there are 8 in total) however it’s this combined with Croatia’s thriving nightlife & music festival scene and relatively moderate cost of living prices that is driving revelers to its shores. We explore 3 of Croatia’s most popular islands:

    Pag

    If you’re looking for a  party holiday but tired of the typical 18-30 holidays to places like Aiya Napa and Magaluf where you seem to spend your life avoiding forceful reps promising all you can drink for 2 hours for 10 euros then Pag may be the place for you. Pag plays host to many open air festivals such as Hideout and is the Croatia’s party capital. Often described as the new Ibiza, Zcre beach is renowned for hosting some of Croatia’s wildest parties. Both club Kalypso and Aquarius club lie on the beach and are packed out from the end of June right the way through to the beginning of September. Attracting world class DJ’s throughout the summer this really is the place to be if you’re looking for a non-stop party. Despite having built its reputation as the No.1 party destination in Croatia, the islands beauty is what makes it so special. There are many quieter beaches and beautiful scenery to be found all over the island which certainly will help nurse that hangover.

     

    Whose it best for: The perfect location for those who enjoy partying 24/7 or are into dance festivals.

    When to go: July

     

    Hvar

    Hvar is Croatia’s most luxurious destination. The harbour is almost always filled with multi million pound yachts and on a good day would rival some of the most prestigious the world over. If you enjoy the finer things in life, have a little bit of cash to spend on a holiday and enjoy a vibrant nightlife Hvar is the place to go. Steeped in history, Hvar has many cultural wonders to be seen such as the old Spanjola Fortress which was built in the 16th century to protect the bay and town. Despite its many cultural wonders Hvar has also managed to carve itself out as quite the party destination. Hula Hula bar is quickly becoming famed for its sunsets and Carpe Diem beach club sit’s on its own island just off the coast of Hvar. The open air club boasts white leather sofas, big named DJ’s and doesn’t open till 2am but the party doesn’t stop till long after the sun has come up. Great bars, clubs and restaurants makes Hvar the perfect destination for those looking for a lively nightlife whilst the cultural sites and beaches provide some substance and culture.

     

    Whose it best for: Ideal for those who want the perfect mix of scenery, beauty, sophistication and lively nightlife.

    When to go: July – Mid August

     

     

    Brac

    Looking to visit one of the Dalmatian coasts many islands but on a bit of a budget? Then Brac could be the destination of choice for you. Sat just off the coast of mainland Split, Brac is easily accessible by boat. Thanks to the soaring popularity of islands like Pag and Hvar, Brac is far less touristy and for that reason the accommodation, food and drink prices are much cheaper. Brac also has the added advantage that it features Zlatni Rat beach, one of Croatia’s most beautiful beaches. The town of Bol has a wide range of bars and clubs which are open from dusk till dawn and despite the island being far less touristy than some of the others, it still remains a popular stop off for many yacht fleets which ensure the bars and clubs remain busy all summer and host some pretty wild beach parties. It’s worth researching when the big ones are should you be looking to plan a visit.

     

    Whose it best for: Perfect for those who are on a bit of a budget, looking for a good time.

    When to go: Mid June – Early September
