iPhone 6 to Feature More Sensors And Ultra Retina Display at 398 PPI [Rumor]

The iPhone 6 and iOS 8 rumors are reaching feverish pitch as we move towards the summer.

First up, we have new information out of China from International Electronic Business news chief analyst at Sun Changxu suggesting that the iPhone will feature more sensors than previous generation iPhones. It is expected to add barometric pressure, temperature and humidity sensors.

Next, Apple insider Sonny Dickson is reporting that the next-generation iPhone will reportedly be 0.22 inches thick, sport an Ultra-Retina screen at 389 ppi and the new A8 Chip will run at 2.6 GHz.

And finally, Mark Gurman of 9to5 mac claims that Apple is looking to improve inter-app communication in iOS 8 according to sources.

Apple is said to be working on and testing functionality that would allow apps from the App Store to better communicate. This is known as an “XPC” service in the developer world. An API is being developed for apps to be able to share data. For example, a future photo editing application could have the ability to push the edited content for upload via the Instagram or Facebook apps. The debut of the API has been in development for the past couple of years, and it had been removed from the launch version of iOS 7 last year for unspecified reasons. With that in mind, it is plausible that Apple could, again, choose to hold back the functionality.”
