According to media reports, although Apple put a number of new technologies into the iPhone 5, the company did not choose the wireless charging technology that Nokia Lumia 920 has, nor with the NFC chip which comes with the Galaxy S III.

Although some people think that Apple’s Passbook function is the NFC’s perfect partner, Apple iPhone5 does not contain the technology. The Passbook is used to store membership cards, gift cards, and a boarding pass and a baseball game tickets and other information. In an interview, Apple Senior Vice President Phil Schiller said, Passbook can complete the majority of customers required services alone without using the existing merchant payment system.

Schiller said, it is not clear if NFC can become the solutions to solve any current problems, “Passbook can do various things customers currently need.”

As for wireless charging, Schiller said the wireless charging system still need access to a wall plug base, so therefore it’s unclear how much additional convenience it can bring. At the same time, the widely applicable USB charging interface, is not only able to plug into a plug base on the wall, but also can be used on the plane or the computer. He said: “We must develop another equipment that connects to plug base on the wall, in most cases it’s actual more complex.”

As for why the company changed the connector which almost all iPhone and iPod devices released since 2003 have, Schiller said, just because if the interface is not changed, then they can not develop products as thin as the new iPhone and iPod. Therefore, the new “Lightning” connector is launched.

Nevertheless, Schiller said that Apple did not change the connector. He said: “The new connector will appear many years later.”

According to South Korea “Central Daily”, Apple will launch its new model iPhone 5 on September 12, but Apple replaced most of the part devices produced by Samsung in this phone.

Apple will use memory chips or display produced by Samsung Electronics Company in the new iPhone, SK Hynix, Elpida Memory and Toshiba were chosen to provide memory chips for Apple new iPhone, LG and Japan display companies were selected to supply LCD.

But the industry thinks Apple is difficult to completely cut off transactions with Samsung. At the beginning of this year, Apple had tried to change the “New iPad” panel supplier to Sharp and LG Display, but it suffers due to the quality of the two companies products. British IT specialist fund manager Van·luogaupp thinks that, as the quality of parts directly impacts on product quality, it’s expected Apple is difficult to completely sever trading cooperation with Samsung.

Previously, in the iPhone product, parts accounting for 40% of product total price are provided by Samsung. The semiconductor parts scale Apple bought from Samsung Electronics in 2011 was approximately 10 trillion won, equivalent to 6% of Samsung Electronics sales.

According to media reports, Apple will hold the conference on the 12th of this month, the outside have speculated that Apple will release the next generation iPhone. Vietnamese website Tinhte released a video this week which showed the original headset design of the next generation iPhone will change.

It is reported that the currently Apple’s original headset with remote control and microphone was launched in 2008, but the design of the headset itself can be traced back to 2006. However, with the release of Apple’s next generation iPhone, the design of the headset may change greatly.

It’s said that the headset is designed by Apple’s California team and manufactured by Vietnam Foxconn factory. It’s clearly marked on the headphone line: “Designed by Apple in California Assembled in Vietnam”. The funnel-shaped design of this mold is very innovative, and the headset speaker is almost invisible. The headset seems to use Apple’s one molding process, but when look carefully you can still see the seams.

Compared to Apple’s current headset, the new version’s design has indeed been a major breakthrough. The new designed headphones blend the design of Apple’s current two headphones, earplugs change from round to teardrop-shaped.

Tinhte reported that compared to Apple’s current headphones, the new designed headset sound quality has been greatly improved, the “powerful” bass effect will definitely satisfy the users, but the only pity is that the new headphone output volume is smaller than the current Apple headphones.

It is worth noting that on the headphone line there is no remote control, while the previous line control is essential for iPhone headset. This design also makes other headset manufacturers easier to imitate, but the quality will be one of the advantages of the Apple headphones. The authenticity of the message will be verified two weeks later.

Industry analysts confirmed that the new generation of iPhone (hereafter called the “iPhone 5″) does not support NFC (near field communication technology) function.

Earlier this week, there were rumors that Apple plans to add NFC chips for the iPhone 5, which means that the iPhone 5 will become a mobile payment device.

This message was originally from the Japanese blog, Macotakara, because they found a four-square component on the panel of the iPhone 5 spy photo, and guessed it is an NFC chip.

But hardware review site AnandTech subsequently published articles, after technical analysis, they got the conclusion that the square formation is not the NFC chip. The conclusion gets support of other people in the industry at the same time.

Therefore, this time the report that the iPhone 5 will support NFC coverage is still just a rumor. In fact, this is not surprising, since the beginning of this year this has been the third time with similar rumors.

Variety of Android phones, including the Samsung Galaxy S III and Galaxy Nexus are equipped with a NFC chip for the exchange of information between devices, or for the secure mobile payment with the applications such as Google Wallet.
