As is Apple’s typically strategy, this year’s iPhone will have the same outward appearance as last year’s model. Recent leaks seem to confirm that. Those leaks do, however, also point to a different logic board internally. One of these improvements should give the iPhone 6s double the LTE speeds compared to the iPhone 6.
According to and images they were provided, the new iPhone logic board includes a Qualcomm MDM9635M chip. This chip, , was designed to be backwards compatible with slower networks while still supporting newer LTE options. All of this is in a design that is also supposed to optimize power usage. For iPhone users, this can mean improved battery life, though with the current iPhone 6 battery life, we can also assume Apple will put those savings into powering some other new feature.
In terms of speeds, the chip has a potential download speed of 300 Mbps thanks to LTE Advanced. Upload speeds are no slouch, either, at 50 Mbps. In real world situations, users should expect to see download speeds closer to 225 Mbps. That’s still faster than what users typically would see at home on their wifi. Of course, even in areas where there is no LTE Advanced coverage, users can still get great speeds thanks to support of dual carrier HSUPA and dual band multi-carrier HSPA+.

Although neither Google nor LG have confirmed the same.

Apple users will now have the option of voice-calling on WhatsApp as well. The had already been rolled-out to Android users.
According to the the latest iOS version of WhatsApp, version 2.12.1 brings voice-calling to the app. The itunes store description reads, “Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes.Data charges may apply. Note: WhatsApp Calling is rolling out slowly over the next several weeks.”
While we updated the app, the voice-calling option hasn’t yet gone live for us on the app, so it could take several weeks for the complete roll-out to take place.
The other interesting feature of this update is that WhatsApp is now finally making use of iOS 8’s Extensions, which means that you can now directly share a photo, video, links to WhatsApp from the Camera, Photos app in iOS.
Users can also edit contacts directly from WhatsApp itself. The other feature is the ability to send multiple videos and to crop and rotate the videos before sharing them. We also saw that you can add a caption to a video before sending them to a user.
The latest update comes soon after WhatsApp co-founder and CEO Jan Koum announced on Facebook that the messaging app now has 800 million users.
, “WhatsApp – now serving 800,000,000 monthly active users. Reminder for the press out there: active and registered users are not the same thing.”
This is a big milestone for WhatsApp, since the company had announced in January that it had the 700 million monthly active users. That means in a span of over 4 months, they added another 100 million monthly active users.
