Rumor: Apple’s Upcoming ‘A10’ is a Sexa-core Processor?

According to a rumor, Apple’s next processor should bear the name ‘A10’ and it may come with as much as six-cores. It would be manufactured using a 14 nanometer production process and it would be produced by either Samsung in Texas or TMSC in Taiwan. Original rumor mentioned 10nm process node, but that just goes to show that original source should be taken with a kilogram of sea salt on its tail. These two companies would be competing for orders, the Weibo source said. We can get behind the naming, but the rest seems a bit off as Apple is not a company known for doing major internal hardware changes.

Apple iPhone 6S Pricing And Availability Information

After their launch event, Apple finally revealed availability and pricing for the all-new Apple iPhone 6S. While the device itself doesn’t bring a lot of new stuff, it clearly has a tight grip set on the mobile market. You do get the ‘optimized’ iOS9 upgrade (planned obsolescence), some minor styling changes and a more scratch resistant glass, improved aluminum case, changes to the front / rear camera and the way things are done on the phone. But for me as an example, this changes don’t do much to justify switching from the old to the new. The introduction of the 64-bit A9 chip will increase performance, but it is
