Reasons To Buy an iPhone 6S Instead Of iPhone 8 or iPhone X

iPhone 6S is one of the mobile phones the longest lived especially among Apple’s products. Apple usually offers only the previous model iPhone when it announces a new model; however, in this case something seems to change. From 6S to iPhone 8 and iPhone X, all models are now available on Apple’s official website. But, now comes up a question: Which model to buy? This time we will be more on side of iPhone 6S.

Here’s why you should consider buying the iPhone 6S instead of the iPhone 8 or iPhone X.

The price of iPhone 6S

It should go without saying that Apple’s older iPhones are going to be cheaper than its new ones.

Here’s what the new iPhones cost:

iPhone 8 with 64 GB of storage: $700.

iPhone 8 Plus with 64 GB of storage: $800.

iPhone X with 64 GB of storage: $1,000.

However, Apple is still selling the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus for significantly less than the new iPhones:

iPhone 6S with 32 GB of storage: $450.

iPhone 6S Plus with 32 GB of storage: $550.

Excellent Design

iPhone 6S has an excellent design – and you’ll find comfort in knowing that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus look nearly identical to the new iPhone 8 models. Both the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 8 have the same size of bezels around the display and same overall shape, and their screens are the same size and same resolution.

Apple added improvements to the iPhone 8’s and iPhone X’s screens, including TrueTone, which adjusts the overall color temperature to match the lighting in your surrounding, and a wide color gamut for richer colors.

At the same time, the screen on the iPhone 6S is still excellent. The screen on that phone has the same sharpness and resolution as the new iPhone 8, and it reproduces colors just fine for browsing the web, using apps, watching videos, looking at photos, and playing games.

Have you heard of Apple’s Next Smartphone: iPhone 9

September means Apple’s yearly Keynote, unveiling of every feature and bringing all those marvelous designs finally to our attention. We can’t stop waiting for this moment of reveal like parents locking their eyes to the ultrasound screen. We wonder how our baby will look like in the next generation release, or how smart it could get. And we finally have been informed and are ready to get excited for the next year’s Keynote.

However, there’s already been speculations on next generation iPhone 9 (the name naturally remains unclear) just after the release of the 8th generation and iPhone X. We have to wait a whole year to know if these news are totally true, but we love hints and rumours about every Apple product, and talking won’t cost a penny to Apple’s big fan family.

Each iPhone Has A Unique Design

Alongside the delicious technological innovations, every iPhone outstands in the market with their unique design. So while iPhone 8 and X now got even better, we can expect ‘too much’ of the next generation product.

First of all, there’s an expectation about Super Retina Display, the feature Apple introduced this year in iPhone X, will also be built in the regular series which will take the screen experience marvelously beyond for each group of users. If Apple’s gonna use the same frameless style of iPhone X for their iPhone 9, it means the consecutive screen design having started with iPhone 6 will come to an end as well.

It’s also said that Apple is considering choosing Full Active LCD Panels by Japan Display over OLED screens as the cost value significantly differs which convinces Apple more easily. Moreover, the next generation iPhone could come in 3 different sizes: 5,28, 5,85 and 6,46 inches. But the 5.3-inch model is said to have been cancelled so we’re left with only two screen sizes but the biggest ones so far.

One way to be sure is of course waiting for the year 2018! We hope refinement in battery life and stronger performance as well but that’s usually realised in every generation. Last but not least, Face ID along with already featured Touch ID could be mind blowing.

Analysis Reveals that Apple Does Not Slow Down Older iPhones on purpose

For a while, it has been said that Apple encourages its customers to buy new Apple devices by releasing software updates. To test if the speculation is much or less close to reality, Futuremark, a benchmarking company has collected data since 2016 from seven different iPhone models and three different versions of iOS. 100.000 results were collected during the process, in which each of the three versions were uploaded to and tested on each of the seven versions of iPhone devices. As explained in the following, the outcome of the analysis is not really consistent with the speculation.

iPhone 5S, the oldest one with iOS 11

The first set of data collected from iPhone 5S, which is the oldest iPhone that can run iOS 11. iPhone 5S is also known for being the first iPhone model that has a A7 as CPU and 64 bit chip. It is observed that, iPhone 5S has improved in terms of GPU after the software updates, although the opposite would be the expected observation.

On the other hand, regarding CPU, the device has reflected some decrease in performance. Additionally, performance of the devices do not really show a significant difference when İos9 and İos11 are compared. Other iPhones, iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, and iPhone 7, are seem to have had some decrease in performance as they are being updated, but again, not a significant amount.

At the end of the evaluation, Futuremark officially said that their test results show that there is no relation between the speculation and the reality, moreover the performances of iPhones were not going downwards that much as they are being updated.

Additionally, it is necessary to know that test environment can be different than the Daily life usage. It is arguable that we do not have any information if user’s real time experience was considered during tests.

iPhone 8 Plus Has A Huge Battery Problem! What Will Apple Do Now?

Last year we have witnessed that Samsung suffered a lot from the explosion of Galaxy Note 7 due to a battery problem. This incident, which is one of Samsung’s biggest bottlenecks, is now Apple’s. A problem with the iPhone 8 Plus causes the battery to swell and the back of the phone to come out.

Anthony Wu bought a new iPhone 8 Plus in Toronto, Canada on Sunday. But then, had to return the device until Monday because is a defective battery that swells on the iPhone and creates pressure on the back cover. At least five separate reports of the new 5.5in iPhone 8 Plus smartphones have shown deformed phones, swelled batteries and screens being detached from the aluminum bodies of the devices.

Apple looks for solution

An Apple spokesperson said the company was looking into the issues. Some of the devices were reportedly collected by mobile phone operator partners for investigation. With millions of iPhones coming off the production line overseas, and thereby millions of lithium-ion batteries being manufactured, it’s common in the industry for there to be a very low percentage of defective units.

As we’ve mentioned before, Apple has a team of engineers who are uniquely tasked with monitoring problems that arise from some of the first batch of iPhones off the production line. That being the case, it stands to reason that some of the impacted iPhone models are already back at Apple headquarters being examined by engineers.

Are iOS 11 and iPhone 8 failure?

Apple has released two updates to iOS 11 since it was first made available on September 19. The first update, iOS 11.0.1, went some way to fixing the battery problems. The analysis showed a 65 per cent improvement in the update, with a battery decay time of 159 minutes, as opposed to 96 minutes.

The iPhone 8 Plus might have some fancy camera tricks up its sleeve, but is it really worth buying its bulky frame ahead of its sleeker rivals or the potential of the iPhone X?

Is iPhone A Good Choice For You and Which iPhone To Buy?

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus finally took their place in stores. However the audience waiting for the new iPhone to change the phone is facing a serious dilemma because there is an iPhone X on the horizon and it is not far away.

Which iPhone is a good choice for you? Is the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus the classic sequel or is it iPhone X, which is introduced as the future of smart phones and offers more than a standard improvement? This dilemma is Apple’s problem as well as the new iPhone users.

How does Apple manage this dilemma?

Some of the users wait 1-2 years to replace their current iPhone with the latest iPhone version. But there is also another group of users that do not hesitate to wait for 2-3 years until the device’s battery life runs out.

Apple taught iPhone users to expect for a “new and familiar” blend of upgrades. Many people say that they will buy the familiar iPhone 8, despite what the iPhone X will offer. We will see if Apple’s iPhone X will make more than complicating the iPhone product line. But no one doubts that iPhone 8 will have a huge sales success.

iPhone X or iPhone 8

Many tech-savvy people expect the iPhone 8, but they plan to buy an iPhone X as soon as possible as many features on the iPhone 8 Plus are also available on the iPhone X despite the smaller size. If your hands are small for using the iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone X is just for you.

Some of us want the iPhone X, and some of us are looking to continue on the road with the familiar and new iPhone 8. In either case, Apple is winning. That’s why Apple’s decision to announce three new phones at once will be good for Apple. It’s obvious that Apple will occupy the scene for smart phones this fall.

Will iOS 11 speed up iPhones?

Apple released iOS 11.1 beta 1 with minor improvements and performance improvements shortly after iOS 11.01 update. How did this update affect the performance of iPhones?

Apple released iOS 11 a week after the fall event. This update, which includes many innovations, brought along the mistakes. For this reason, the company that is using iOS 11.01 started testing iOS 11.1, which is expected to be a more stable version. Test videos showing the performance of the new iOS release on the first public beta of the iPhone models have been released.

Battery life of iPhones with iOS 11

Users who have not had a major battery performance problem in iOS 11 betting have begun to report that they are experiencing serious problems with the final version. On some devices it has been seen that the usage time for iOS 10.3.3 has decreased by half. Focusing on this issue, Apple wants to stop the complaints from users with the first major update of iOS 11.

The internet is congested with conflicting tips and tricks to maximize daily battery life, so it’s a little messy trying to figure out what’s what, especially now that there’s iOS 11 with the possibility of new battery-draining features to fix.

What if battery problem bothers you?

If you just updated your iPhone to iOS 11, give it a few days to fully reindex and cache everything before you start freaking out. Things should normalize after a day or two, or even less time, so just give it a little time. If you cannot really get rid of the problem until Apple offers a useful one, there some other options you can do.

We’re all annoyed whenever an app requests notifications. But what’s more annoying is that these notifications are taking away valuable battery life. Go to Settings –> Notifications to browse all of your apps and see which have notifications enabled. When you find one you’d like to turn off, simply tap on it, then toggle off Allow Notifications to disable notifications.

Price Comparison: A Guide To Buy iPhone

Which is the best iPhone for you? iPhone SE, iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus… Or should you buy the new iPhone X (or iPhone 8 or iPhone 7s, iPhone 7SE) that have started to be introduced in the fall of 2017 instead of buying the iPhone now? We will help you to make the right decision in our iPhone purchasing guide.

Apple just announced new iPhone X in September. There were various rumors about the name of this iPhone: and it came up as iPhone X (iPhone Ten). You can find various articles about the other 2017 iPhone on our site: iPhone 8

We will make a quick comparison as soon as possible considering that the long scripts will fit you.

Smartphone Models of iPhone

On September 7, 2016, Apple introduced iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone SE, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus are still in the market and continue to sell intensively. Apple official store does not sell iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5s models. But it is still possible to buy these models from shopping sites.

What should we pay attention to when comparing iPhone models?

In comparison we had to set some criteria such as:

  • Price
  • Colour options
  • Screen size
  • Performance
  • Capacity
  • Camera quality
  • Battery / Battery capacity

The prices of latest models in USA:

iPhone 8 64 GB: $ 699.00

iPhone 8 256 GB: $ 849.00

iPhone 8 Plus 64 GB: $ 799.00

iPhone 8 Plus 256 GB: $ 949.00

iPhone X 64 GB: $ 999.00

iPhone X 256 GB: $ 1149.00

Capacity selection depends on your usage habits. If you regularly back up, 64 GB capacity will not be a problem. Considering older models of 16 GB, 64 GB is pretty huge capacity. It is possible to say that it is sufficient value unless you store a lot of video.

It is also important to know how long your charge will survive. But there is not a single answer to this question, unfortunately. Each application consumes energy differently and every person has different usage habits.

Apple Introduced Fast Charging But It Costs Something

The most popular devices of the last month – probably – iPhone X comes with the feature of fast charging. It only takes 30 mins to charge the battery up to 50%. Sounds cool! But let’s be more clear on this: When you buy an iPhone X — or iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which support the same feature — you don’t get fast charging out of the box.

They come with a USB Power Adapter which likely means USB-A. So users will have to buy a separate adapter, and the cheapest USB-C Power Adapter Apple is selling — the 29W model — costs $49 in Apple Store.

Worse, you’ll need a new cable, too. The new iPhones come with a Lightning to USB Cable adapter, but you’ll need Apple’s USB-C to Lightning Cable adapter, which starts from $25 in the Apple Store.

The iPhone X is an expensive step to the unknown

iPhone X is introduced the forward-looking, innovative new iPhone: the future of smartphone. But the iPhone X is just a beginning for many compromises as Apple seemingly wasn’t able to get expected features ready in time. For example a distance wireless charging, but we have to live with and pay for fast charging feature for now. No one dies because of the lack of these features. But now that we know all of iPhone X’s features, is it a good buy? This turns into the main question.

And yes, it’s expensive. I don’t think that’s a problem in itself — the most expensive iPhone variants have often been the first to sell out. But a lot of people simply won’t be able to dish out $999 + tax on a phone. This time it is more than a choice for many people around the world.  On the other hand, iPhone X likely a little better than their predecessors, which were pretty great. Millions will buy them, and love them.

Tim Cook Thinks The Price For iPhone X Is Not Very High

With a price tag of $999, the iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone we have ever seen. So, how does Apple’s CEO Tim Cook interpret this high price? For the iPhone X, which is the most expensive iPhone ever produced, Tim Cook has commented on the price! According to Tim Cook, the price is quite normal.

iPhone X from Tim Cook’s Perspective

Tim Cook was the guest on ABC News in the US and answered the question via Twitter about the price of iPhone X: Isn’t the $999 iPhone X a little pricey for a lot of people? According to Tim Cook:

“Most people are now paying for phones over long periods of time. And so very few people will pay the price tag of the phone initially. Also most people actually trade in their current phone, and so that reduces the price further, and some carriers even throw in subsidies and discounts.”

tim cook iphone x price

Apparently, according to Tim Cook, the price of the iPhone X is not particularly expensive when it comes to specially designed campaigns and technology.

The price for the future of smartphones

In addition to the base $999 iPhone X, Apple is selling a 256GB version for $1,149. That makes the iPhone X the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever sold. As opposed to the analysis of many people, Apple obviously thinks that the iPhone X deserves the price as it is the “future” of smartphones.

Tim Cooks says, “When we look at it, the iPhone in particular has become so essential in our daily lives, people want it to do more and more, so we’ve built more and more technology in to be able to do it.”

At the end of the day, in case when the majority finds the iPhone X is overpriced, this approach will be reflected in underwhelming sales.

The redesigned Music app experience automatically syncs playlists like New Music Mix and Favorites Mix, along with the user’s most listened to music.

What Is Apple’s Files App Introduced With iOS 11?

Along with the introduction of many new features with the introduction of the highly anticipated iOS 11, the users have met beautiful innovations. With the introduction of iOS 11, users now have a file manager application. So, let’s have a brief look at this Apple Files! What is Apple Files? What does Apple Files offer to the users?

What is the Apple Files application?

One of the most notable of innovations in iOS 11 is Files app. With Apple’s file manager application for iOS users, a brand new experience of organizing all the files in one place welcomes the Apple lovers.

We will not be able to access system files with the file manager application. However, with the iOS 11 update, the Files app, which will bring all of the items in iCloud Drive, files in third-party cloud programs like Box or Dropbox, will provide a nice experience for users.

The filing system, which iOS users have been waiting for years, comes at the end with the new version of the mobile operating system. The new Files application, powered by the Finder application logic in MacOS, will empower the iPad and iPhone users. It allows us to access the files stored on the device and the files on iCloud Drive. It also serves as a central system within third-party Drive applications.

Apple defines the app as:

Files.
Wherever they are, they’re here.

The new Files app brings all your files together. You can easily browse, search, and organize all your files in one place. And there’s a dedicated place for your recent files. Not just the ones on your iPad, but also those in apps, on your other iOS devices, in iCloud Drive, and across other services like Box and Dropbox.

How to use Apple Files?

Apple’s Files application draws attention with similarities to Finder in MacOS. On the last tab of the application you can sort your files by labels in different colors according to importance.

For now, this app is available for iPad users, and will also apply to iPhone users with the iOS 11 update in September.

Where Can I Buy the Cheapest iPhone, and Is It Trustworthy?

As we all know now, iPhone has become the famous product of the globe. It is sold and bought in 33 countries around the world. Yet as we also know that prices are highly varied. Thus, if one wants to get a brand-new iPhone (any model) with an affordable price, one needs to track down the best deals.

In May, Deutsch Bank has published the report, Mapping the World’s Best Prices, showing different iPhone prices around the world. While it is logical to assume that Hong Kong would be the best option to buy the cheapest iPhone since the product is manufactured in China and first transported through there, the report shows otherwise.

The difference in the VAT (value added taxes), Apple’s pricing policy and of course, the currency appreciations cause difference in the prices. It seems that US has the lead in the cheapest prices while Turkey seems to be the most expensive country to buy one, with Brazil following it just behind. Yet still, one needs to know that US prices in the list do not include sales taxes while the most of Europe does, which makes US prices appear lower than they really are.

Where is the cheapest iPhone?

While considering the best price, relying only on the data from Apple’s website will not suffice. Not because of the difference in the tax regulations, customs and currency issues, there are also technical requirements for your iPhone to function well in your own country. Some features like network configurations and 3G/4G frequency depends on the country the phone is used. Likewise, some specific applications may not be functioning in your home.

Warranty is another issue, you need to check if it is country specific or not. Lastly, even though the service is available for your phone, the spare parts may not be in your reach which may turn out to be a major problem. It is better you ask first to your local store about the best functioning model so that your cheap foreign iPhone will not cost a bomb at home.

Thousands Of Applications Will Not Work On iOS 11!

While the date to release Apple’s new iOS 11 is approaching, most of the hundreds of thousands of incompatible apps have been removed from the App Store. So why are these applications incompatible with iOS 11?

Apple unveiled iOS 11 in June of 2017 during its Worldwide Developer Conference, releasing the first developer beta the same day. As Apple announced their users with iOS 10.3, iOS 11 officially gives up support for 32-bit applications. Any 32-bit app will not be launched and older iPhones and iPads with 32-bit CPUs cannot update to iOS 11 at all.

Apple describes its latest mobile OS as:

iOS 11 sets a new standard for what is already the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. It makes iPhone better than before. It makes iPad more capable than ever. And now it opens up both to amazing possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps. With iOS 11, iPhone and iPad are the most powerful, personal, and intelligent devices they’ve ever been.

Apple continues to remove incompatible applications from the App Store, as the 7th beta version was released in the past days along with the preparations for the upcoming release of iOS 11. Let’s take a look at the steps Apple is now taking in the process of finalizing 32-bit application support.

ios 11 - applications

 

Many apps, not compatible with iOS 11!

According to Oliver Yeh, founder of the analyst firm Sensor Tower, 187,000 apps on the App Store have 32-bit apps, which make up about 8% of all iPhone apps. Since June, most of the 32-bit apps in the App Store are being removed, only users with app link can access them.

If you do not have a 64-bit version of an app you use often, you should not update your phone to iOS 11 or expect the developer to post a new version. However, it is important to remember that Apple will eventually remove 32-bit applications completely from the App Store.

For the Mac, Apple told developers that macOS High Sierra would be the last version of its desktop operating system to support 32-bit apps ‘without compromises’.

Apple Macbook Air vs Macbook Pro Screen Comparison and Macbook Prices

Are you hesitating between buying a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro? In this article I try to compare the two devices in different directions and to help our readers during the decision making process. Also, I will inform you of Macbook prices around the world.

So, let’s begin!

Which one should I buy Air or Pro?

This question is one of the first-ever questions that anyone who decides to buy a Mac has – maybe after Macbook prices. This is caused by the fact that  MacBook Pro’s retina screen offers a high screen quality and performance while MacBook Air catches you with the lightness and slimness.

At first glance, the MacBook Air stands out with its lightness, slimness and battery life reaching up to 12 hours, while the retina display MacBook Pro shines with its 9-hour battery life, despite its screen quality, performance and much more compact than its predecessor.

Screen Quality and Resolution

Of course, one of the most important differences between MacBook Air and MacBook Pro is the screen. The screen of both products is very good. Although both screens are actually 13.3-inches, I chose to mention 13-inches to make reading easier throughout the text.

The 13-inch MacBook Air’s screen is in 16:10 format, with a resolution of 1440 × 900 pixels and a pixel value of 128 ppi per inch. On a normal non-retina MacBook Pro, this value is 113. So, we might say that MacBook Air has compressed more pixels into the same area.

The MacBook Pro with a 13-inch Retina Display also has a 16:10 format display, a resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels, and a pixel count of 227 pixels per inch. This is also what lies behind the “retina display.” The pixel is so small that it is almost impossible to see the screen with the naked eye. Macbook prices give a hint of such differences.But what’s interesting is that the icons and text on the 13-inch MacBook Air’s screen are a bit smaller than the 13-inch MacBook Pro. This is because the actual resolution on the retina is 1280 × 800. That is, each pixel on the non-retina screen represents 4 pixels on the retina. Thus, as the image sharpness increases, the size and size of the icons remain constant.

The price of MacBook Air and Macbook Pro

The price of MacBook Air and Macbook Pro varies from country to country as the other Apple product prices. MacBook Pro costs USD 1587 in Australia, USD 1734 in Belgium, USD 1184 in Japan while Macbook Air costs USD 1190 in Australia, USD 1311 in Belgium, USD 908 in Japan.

This new face recognition scanner with 3D sensors will detect the face of the user in depth and will do it for as little as a million of a second. On the other hand, the source of this information is not given. This facial recognition system is not thought to have been produced by Samsung, but it is likely that the company has knowledge of the entire screen assembly.

The Wall Street Journal says the system will use infrared and work on it in both dark and low light conditions. Depth sensing technology, often referred to as structured light, sprinkles thousands of tiny infra-red dots to one’s face or any other target. By reading the distortions in this point area, the camera obtains super consistent depth of knowledge. These infrared points are said to be a system that allows only the smartphone camera to see, not the people, and allows the phone to be opened even in the dark.

Apple Product Prices Comparison Is A Big Deal, So How Apple Sets The Prices?

Comparing the prices and the features of electronics can be useful because there are many factors to set them. Apple iPhone phones are sold all over the world. But globally, there is no recommended price in every country and they are priced according to economic conditions. Apple product prices comparison can be interesting in any ways as these economic sanctions are causing the phone to have different price tags that cost a little many dollars. If you are curious about the price difference between countries selling iPhone in the world, let us take you here.

First of all, as many other products, we know that labor, logistics, marketing and advertising prices have been added to the cost of an electronic product. Of course, a profit share is put on them. But these factors, as well as the country’s electronic tax payers, luxury consumption or private consumption taxes, added value percentages are added to the difference between the naked cost of the product.Apple Product Prices Comparison

This also applies to iPhone without exception. Let’s have a look at Apple product price comparison closer. An example is that an iPhone in the US is equivalent to 1.6 per cent of a family budget of 4 people, which is 39.3 per cent for Indonesia.

The iPhone 7, which has a big market in China, sells for 807.66 USD. In Russia, 900.83 USD is covers the price to buy this device.

It is possible to get the iPhone 7 in the USA for 649 USD, in Norway for 934.10 USD,in the Philippines for 737.01, in Italy for 939.62 USD and in France for 904.34 USD. A family in Indonesia can get 2 iPhones with 39% of annual income, but this percentage is equivalent to 63 iPhones in the US. In Turkey, the annual income is only 7 percent of people who own one iPhone 6.

27 per cent of the price of an iPhone 6 in Turkey is taxed by the state. In this case, the state is making more money than most technology companies such as Sony, SanDisk, LG and so on which are producing parts of an iPhone 6 device. This situation is not special for Turkey!

The iPhone 8 will officially be introduced next month. Until today, it is expected that the phone will be between $ 1000 and $ 1200 as known from the leaked data. So the question of “will customers-to-be be attracted enough to pay this price for iPhone 8?” arises. Let’s have a look at the results of a survey.

The phone may be of low interest

According to survey results conducted by Barclays, only 11% of respondents said they would get an iPhone worth a thousand dollars. Many of the respondents want a cash price of around $582 or a plan to pay $48 for 12 month.

Of course, we have to consider that the results of this survey do not reflect. But the high price tag will be an important point for consumers in every way. In the meantime, there are some situations for investors not to worry for the time being. For example, the iPhone 7s models, which are expected to be introduced along with the iPhone 8 models, can achieve a successful sales figure.

Finally, the “iPhone Upgrade” program, which Apple carries out to upgrade consumers to the new iPhone, can lead to successful sales of the product despite the high price tag.

The definitive iPhone 8 features

The frameless iPhone 8 design with the images shared by Benjamin Geskin for the first time in April was confirmed by HomePod software. According to the feature details revealed through the HomePod software, the Face ID feature will work so well that it can quickly perform facial recognition even when the device is on the table (without affecting viewpoint).

Troughton-Smith confirmed that the status bar on iPhone 8 would look like it looks.

HomePod software also revealed the camera details of the iPhone 8. Accordingly, both the front and back of the iPhone 8 will shoot 60 FPS 4K videos. Apple has made an important camera development with iPhone 7 Plus. With the iPhone 8, we can say that Apple is playing the summit considering the camera.

Powerful facial recognition

Developer Guilherme Rambo shared on the Twitter account what the iPhone 8 can do with face detection. Accordingly, iPhone 8 will be able to provide authorization for Apple Pay payments with face identification. Moreover, it is possible to record more than one face, such as in Touch ID Technology, and to access third party applications with this new layer of security.

Considering the Pearl code name that Apple uses for facial recognition in iPhone 8, the string “numerofAppsUsingPearl” in a line of code references indicates that third-party applications will also be able to access the facial recognition function, and that can take place of passwords. In this sense, the facial recognition was formed with the expectation that the Touch ID could take its place completely. In addition, it is foreseen that both front and rear cameras may have the face recognition feature.
