Apple’s iPhones have never really been known for their battery life, but it seems that has changed somewhat with the iPhone XR with Apple claiming that the iPhone XR has the longest battery life of any iPhone ever. So much so that they have put out an ad for it that boasts the battery life of the handset.
Just recently, Google officially announced their new Pixel 3a and 3a XL smartphones. These are budget Pixel handsets that sport mid-range hardware, but at the same time still feature some of the Pixel 3’s features, such as its camera system. This means that for a few hundred dollars less, you get features that would have otherwise been exclusive to the Pixel 3.
It was with the iPhone X that Apple finally and officially brought support for wireless charging to their iPhones. However, by then it felt like Apple was really late to the party because the competition not only supported wireless charging, but some devices like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro supported reverse wireless charging.
Google has recently announced their new Pixel 3a and 3a XL smartphones. These are Google’s mid-ranged offerings and they are priced starting at $400. Unsurprisingly, Google is trying to tempt iPhone users to make the switch from their iOS device to Android, and to do that the company is running a trade-in offer where customers could almost get a Pixel smartphone for free.
According to the rumors, Apple could potentially announce the successor to the iPhone XR later this year where based on the reports, it has been suggested that it could sport a dual camera design. Now thanks to a series of renders and a video created by @OnLeaks for Pricebaba, we might have an idea of what to expect.
One of the problems with the Apple Watch is that it is quite reliant on the iPhone for it to work. For example, until the cellular version of the Apple Watch was launched, users needed to keep their watches paired with their iPhones to receive phone calls and to access the internet. While that has changed, the Apple Watch is still quite dependent on the iPhone.
According to a report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he said that he expects that Apple will be introducing a new antenna design with their 2019 iPhones. Now in his latest research note, Kuo has doubled down on his predictions where he claims Apple will be using a new modified-PI antenna structure.

There’s something to be said about using fingerprints as a security measure instead of your face. While we don’t deny that Apple’s Face ID tech works really well and might be more secure than a fingerprint, but the fact that you can’t unlock your phone unless you look directly at it can be annoying at times.
Did Apple make a mistake by pricing its iPhones too high? Some seem to think so, and Apple themselves have quietly acknowledged that as well by cutting the price of their iPhones in certain markets. It turned out to be a smart move because over in India, one of the markets that the iPhone’s price was “corrected”, it’s starting to show positive results.
In 2017, Apple introduced the iPhone X which marked the first redesign to the iPhone in a few years. It also marked the first time that the base iPhone model was priced $1,000 and higher. You would think that this price tag would deter customers from purchasing the handset, but it seems that was not the case.
In case you didn’t know, Apple’s iPhones in recent years have started to support fast charging. Unfortunately, Apple’s method of fast-charging is an expensive one as it means that customers will need to buy a separate, more high-powered charger (unless you happen to own the 2018 iPad Pro or a MacBook computer).
For a while now it has been rumored that Apple could be looking to develop their own modems. For a company that seems to love to do everything themselves where possible, it actually made a lot of sense. Now according to a report from The Telegraph, there is more evidence that Apple could indeed be working on their own modem, a 5G one no doubt.
A couple of weeks ago following the speculation that Apple’s 5G iPhones could be delayed to 2021 due to their apparent difficulty in sourcing components. Intel was said to be the company to supply Apple with 5G modems, and the company came forward to claim that everything was going according to plan.
