A Calcalist financial newspaper reported that Apple bought PrimeSense, an Israeli company specializing in 3D-sensor technology, for nearly $345 million.
Concepts of the rumored smartphone were also up online this week.
Regarding Apple’s current iPhone models, Digitimes reported this week that production of the iPhone 5C will be halted as the company wants to focus on the higher-end iPhone 5S.
