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.
Apple released the iPhone 11 Pro just last month where they introduced a third lens to their camera setup. This is a step up from last year’s iPhone XS which feature a dual lens setup. However, Apple’s iPhones are still as expensive as ever, and as such, it would not be reasonable to expect that all iPhone XS owners would upgrade to the iPhone 11 Pro.
Our smartphones have come a very long way since cameras were first introduced to phones. These days, capturing video at high resolutions and high frame rates has become the norm, and because phones lack the space that cameras have, companies have come up with rather innovative ideas on how to achieve certain effects and quality that used to be only available on dedicated cameras.
