Apple Rumor Roundup: Back-to-School Promo, MacBook Air, MobileMe and More

People at the Rumor City are spreading words about Apple's MacBook Air, Mac Pro, iCloud, iPhone, iOS 5 and more. Which of them are true and which are just plain hearsays?

Back-to-School Promo
In the past, Apple gave away free iPod – which is usually worth around $200 – for every Mac purchase to qualifying students. However, there are rumors suggesting that the company’s back-to-school promo this year is a $100 iTunes Gift Card only. The fact that the iPod will not be part of Apple’s promo for the upcoming school year only means that the company will be delaying the device’s upgrade. And with iPod’s financial importance diminishing to Apple, it only makes perfect sense.

iPhone 5 and iOS 5
While Apple did not show even a preview of its upcoming iPhone 5, there are words on the other side of the fence that it’s now in advance testing. Manufacturers, Omnivision and Sony, were tipped to provide 8-megapixel cameras for iPhone 5, while a purported leak of data from UAE suggests that the device might support LTE protocols. On the other hand, the iOS 5 is instructed to sport a native panoramic camera app that will surely grate on the developers of existing apps to do the same trick.

It was announced back then by Intel that the fiber-optics turned copper technology will be making an appearance in the first half of 2011, perhaps this is it. There’s no word as to whether or not the connector will be part of the upcoming MacBook Pro update which is rumored to be a couple of days from now. Expect great things in the next few weeks once Apple has made clear of these reports and rumors.

"A source familiar with Apple's graphics strategy says the company will not only be upgrading its video core, but also going to multiple cores..."---AppleInsider

We’ve heard rumors that the iPad 2 will be sporting a 2048×1536 high resolution screen, but one big question has somehow emerged. The question is related to the GPU or graphics processing unit that will power up such high resolution. AppleInsider, a site dedicated to report rumors about the Apple products, claims that iPad 2 and probably iPhone 5 will be using a dual-core SGX543 GPU from Imagination Technologies.

As AppleInsider puts it:

“A source familiar with Apple’s graphics strategy says the company will not only be upgrading its video core, but also going to multiple cores, a feature that is designed into the SGX543 design. The most likely configuration of Apple’s next custom chip is reportedly the SGX543MP2, which pairs two SGX543 cores to work as one, offering around four times the capability of the previous A4 in graphics and video tasks.”

After a series of competition about iPad and tablets, finally, they’ve realized that behind the genre of tablets, laptops are still alive and breathing.

It’s been roughly three whole years since Macbook Air landed on our laps. Hailed as an extremely useful product with several things in store for you.

The newest Air reportedly features a whooping 11.6″ screen and the Intel Core i-series CPU for low power and high output. There is no doubt the new Air will carry an SSD, and let’s not get surprised to see a 3G data package, similar to the one present on iPad.
