Apple’s new iPhone SE comes at a price of $399, a price tag that we haven’t seen on an iPhone ever since the original iPhone SE. However, the affordable price tag also means that certain compromises had to be made in terms of the choice of hardware and features, where apparently battery size was one of those compromises.
One of the surprising changes that Apple made to its iPhones last year was longer battery life. For years, the company has been trying to compress its iPhones as much as possible to the point where they were forsaking features such as battery life in pursuit of thinness. That was why last year was rather surprising.
When Apple released the iPhone XR, some were a bit skeptical about the phone’s ability to succeed. After all, Apple had tried and failed with the iPhone 5c, but it seems that things were really different with the iPhone XR, where according to report after report, all of it seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: it was outselling the more expensive iPhone models.
The best camera that you could possibly own is the one that’s with you. If you don’t take the shot, then it’s as good as not having a camera at all. Granted, there are certain pieces of gear that can probably get the job done a lot faster and a lot better, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t still create something amazing.
Over the years and with every iteration, our smartphone cameras are growing more capable. However, will there ever come a day in which professional cameras could be replaced by smartphones? In a video uploaded by photographer Matti Haapoja, he decided to put that to the test by comparing photos taken by the iPhone 11 Pro against that of his Canon 1DX Mark II, a professional DSLR that costs $7,500.
Last year Apple’s iPhone XR represented the bulk of iPhone sales. It was not surprising given that the iPhone XR was the cheapest option amongst the 2018 releases, while at the same time the differences in its specs wasn’t so great that users felt that they were giving up too much just to save some money.
One of the new features that got everyone pretty excited about when the iPhone 11 smartphones were announced, was the promise of battery life that would last hours longer than the previous gen iPhones. Many thought it was marketing hyperbole, but based on the reviews we’ve read so far, it seems that Apple has indeed delivered what they promised.
With Apple increasing the prices of its iPhones and combined that with the heat from the competition and also a mature market, it wasn’t surprising to learn that Apple’s newer iPhones weren’t selling as hot as its predecessors did in the years before it. However, the iPhone 11 seems to be painting a story of redemption.

In an ideal world, we would take all our products for repair at the company we bought them from. Unfortunately, the reality is that official repairs can get pretty expensive, which is why some customers turn to third-party repairs which are often cheaper. However, one of the tradeoffs is that you might end up with non-official parts.
Earlier this year, Apple launched the Smart Battery Case for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and the iPhone XS Max. With that being said, it makes sense that the company would want to carry on that tradition with the 2019 iPhones, and now thanks to the folks at 9toMac, they have discovered evidence that suggests that new Smart Battery Cases could be coming for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, […]
For the longest time ever, whenever Apple released a new iPhone, it was guaranteed to be a smashing success. However, in the recent years, that hasn’t always been the case. While far from being a flop, the combination of a matured market and also ever-increasing prices has resulted in demand not being as strong as it used to be.
One of the highlight features of Apple’s new iPhone 11 Pro is when the developers of the Filmic Pro video capture app showed how video could be captured on the phone’s multiple cameras simultaneously. This meant that video could be captured using the front-facing camera and rear-facing cameras at the same time.
One of the features that we’re seeing more handset makers introduce to their phones is reverse wireless charging, where the phones themselves offer wireless charging capabilities which can charge other devices, like another smartphone or wireless earbuds. This is a feature that had been rumored to find its way to the iPhone 11 lineup.
When Apple announced the new iPhone 11 Pro, they also revealed that the new phones will offer up faster connectivity speeds. It sounds good, doesn’t it? However, Apple did not mention exactly how much faster we might be able to expect, but thanks to SpeedSmart, they have managed to get their hands on test data that shows just how fast we can expect.
Several years ago when Apple launched the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, they introduced a new hardware feature in the form of 3D Touch which brought pressure-sensitive displays to smartphones. It sounded promising in theory, but it was quickly shown that it was more exciting in theory than in practice.
During today’s Apple media event in Silicon Valley, the company has announced the iPhone 11 ($699+) and the iPhone 11 Pro ($999+), which also features its most powerful camera system to date.
