One of the features we’re seeing in modern day smartphones is the ability to track it when it goes missing or if it has been stolen. Some thieves try to be clever by turning off the phone when they steal it to prevent the GPS from being activated, but in the case of Redditor u/Sweetmona1, it seems that her patience paid off.
Many were understandably upset at the fact that Apple isn’t bundling accessories with its new iPhones, and the fact that the phones do not come with a 120Hz refresh rate display despite many Android competitors offering similar hardware features. However, it seems that despite the initial upset, many ended up pre-ordering the phones anyway.
When Apple launched the iPhone XR, we were wondering if this could end up being like the iPhone 5c which turned out to be a flop. However, Apple proved the skeptics wrong where the iPhone XR sold like hotcakes. It looks like Apple might have another winner on their hands and also the key to a winning formula with the iPhone 11.
The other day, Corning unveiled their latest Gorilla Glass which comes in the form of Victus. This is supposed to be the company’s toughest Gorilla Glass yet, but of course the company would say that, right? Turns out that they weren’t just making empty claims, at least that’s what the video above by PhoneBuff has confirmed.
If you’re an iPhone 11 owner who is starting to notice that their display is having a strange green tint to it, you’re not alone. This is because according to a number of growing user reports, it appears that some iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max owners are claiming that their devices are showing a weird green tint to them.
It looks like Apple could have a winning formula on their hands because according to data released by Omdia, it has been suggested that the iPhone 11, released last year, is now the “world’s most popular” smartphone, surpassing that of the iPhone XR which was released in 2018.
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.
A couple of weeks ago, a report from the CIRP suggested that Apple’s iPhone 11 was outselling its “Pro” siblings. It looks like the report is pretty spot on because according to Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, he has confirmed that the iPhone 11 is the best-selling iPhone during the holiday quarter, where it was the top-selling iPhone every week for the month of December.
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.
Last year there was a bit of controversy surrounding the iPhone 11 when it was discovered that even when users told the phone not to use location services, it would still continue to do so. Apple later offered an explanation in which they said that this was due to the use of the U1 ultra wideband chip that made its debut in the iPhone 11 models.
The tech on our smartphone cameras have evolved and improved over the years, to the point where some have argued that there might no longer be a need for compact cameras. In fact, to a certain extent, cameras on our smartphones are good enough where at a glance, it could be on par with DSLRs and more professional rigs.
Apple will be launching their next-gen iPhone in 2020, which at the moment is tentatively known as the iPhone 12. The iPhone 12 will come with a host of new features, but it seems that the features might be big enough where customers are apparently hold off on buying the iPhone 11, so much so that Apple could be cutting back on production.
Just the other day, it was reported that there was an issue with the iPhone 11 handsets where it appeared that even when told not to share location of the user, it continued to do so. It sounded like a bug but when security researcher Brian Krebs asked Apple about it, he was told that this was “expected behavior”.
For a company that seems to pride itself on protecting the privacy of its users, it seems that Apple’s iPhone 11 might have a serious privacy problem. This is according to a report from Krebs On Security in which it was discovered that despite disabling location tracking, the iPhone 11 continues accessing it anyway.
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.
We had heard the rumors and seen some evidence suggesting that Apple could be working on Smart Battery Cases for the iPhone 11. Given that Apple had previously released Smart Battery Cases for some of the older iPhone models, we suppose it isn’t a stretch to think that Apple could have new models in the works as well.
A few weeks ago, a video surfaced in which it compared Apple’s new iPhone 11 Pro against a $7,500 Canon professional camera. It was quite a tricky test which only meant that it was in the iPhone’s favor, as if you can’t tell the difference that clearly, then obviously Apple is doing a killer job with the camera on its iPhone.
Apple’s upcoming TV Plus service is expected to be launched soon. While it is a paid subscription, in a bid to get people to subscribe, Apple will be giving away a year’s subscription to those who purchase the company’s products, like its brand new iPhones, but what if you can’t get people to buy your phones?
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.
With the new iPhones, Apple has boasted that they have improved on the battery life of the smartphone. Given that battery life has typically been one of the main criticisms of the iPhone in the past, but it looks like with the iPhone 11, Apple has finally delivered as reviews have praised the improvement in battery life.
