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.
