Have You Ever Thought Of The Notch of iPhone X

Apple announced that they are proud of Notch, which is due to its integration with the TrueDepth camera system in the full-screen design of the iPhone X. Apple, which has gone through a radical design change with iPhone X, had to include the Notch in the phone’s design to include the TrueDepth camera system and move to full-screen design.

The Notch can turn into a shortcut bar rather than the dead area in the hands of application developers. Apple, long silent about the Notch phenomenon, broke the silence recently.

Notch is the product of a proud technology

In his latest interview with Tom’s Guide, Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Vice President of Product Marketing, has announced that Apple is proud of the notch on the iPhone X.

Joswiak said, “The components on the iPhone X are one of the heaviest packaged technological products we’ve made up to now. iPhone X is also the most sophisticated technology we’ve ever had in such a small area.”

Interesting choice for Apple

Apple’s design choice looks ugly thanks to the permanent notch at the top, but its decision to embrace it should also encourage developers to do the same and offer more unique ways to handle the display. Some have already created rough examples of content flowing around the notch, but Apple’s own developer guidelines appear to forbid it:

Don’t mask or call special attention to key display features. Don’t attempt to hide the device’s rounded corners, sensor housing, or indicator for accessing the Home screen by placing black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Don’t use visual adornments like brackets, bezels, shapes, or instructional text to call special attention to these areas either.

It looks like developers will be stuck with that obstructive notch when it comes to creating iOS apps. Finally, on the list of Tom’s Guide, the most innovative technology of 2017, the iPhone X appears. Among the factors driving the iPhone X are Face ID, Super Retina HD screen and Apple A11 Bionic chip.

iOS 11.2 Beta 6 Update Is Available

Apple is on the stage with the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update. We wanted to update you with the details of iOS 11.2 Beta 6, which does not offer much innovation compared to other Beta versions. This release was right after the release of iOS 11.2 to the general public.

Apple recently released iOS 11.2 Beta 6 for developers surprisingly right after releasing iOS 11.2 Beta 5. The early release of the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update with bug fixes and performance improvements make us expect that the final version of iOS 11.2 will be released by mid-December. We will wait and see what will happen.

With the iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update, there are the very same innovations in previous beta releases. However, the iMessage feature on iCloud mentioned in WWDC 17 is not available with this update either. We probably will need to wait for iOS 11.3 for this.

A small line will be added under the icons in the upper right corner of the iPhone X showing the battery status and the activation of the position system. Thus, it will try to be forwarded to the user who opens the notification center. An innovation coming for the iPhone X will be 7.5W fast charging support. With the update, iPhone Xs will be charging faster.

ios 11 2 beta 6

There will be two notification texts in the Control Center explaining why Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cannot be permanently turned off. Thus, the user will be told that this is not a fault and is part of the system’s way of working.

When a quick key is pressed in the calculator, an error will be corrected which causes some operations to be bypassed. All animations in the calculator application will be removed for you to perform error-free and fast operations.

How to install the iOS 11.2 Beta 6

If you have a developer account; you can install iOS 11.2 Beta 6 updates from Settings> General> Software Update.

iOS 11.2 Beta 6 update is available for iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, 12.9 inch iPad Pro, 2nd generation 12.9 inch iPad Pro, 1st generation 10.5 inch iPad Pro, 9.7 inch iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2 and iPod Touch 6th generation model.

Apple Never Stops: Rumours About New iPhone XI

iPhone 8 and iPhone X are still brand-new products, but Apple does not seem to wait to long for releasing another iPhone. Apple launched the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X in September and November 2017 and rumours about the next iPhone has already come out in technology world.

Nobody knows the possible name of this new one, iPhone 9, iPhone 11, iPhoneXI, iPhone X Plus are among the guesses of tech lovers. It is highly possible that the current models will be on the top of smartphone market and September 2018 might be best time for launching the latest iPhone. It is not just us, many people think that way.

What can be different in 2018 model?

iPhone offers various screen sizes and the brand may add another alternative with even larger sizes. 6.0 or 6.5 inches are highly possible to exist in Apple Stores in 2018. The resolution is another feature to be developed. For now, Apple offers resolutions of 2436×1125 & 458 pixels per inch in iPhone X, 1920×1080 & 401ppi in iPhone 8 Plus and 1334×750 & 326ppi iPhone 8. So it is possible to find out iPhone XI (let’s call the next phone this way) with a resolution of  2688×1242 & 459ppi.

iPhone XI may also have a better screen with high quality glass. Cracks on screen or even broken screens are not few in number. This is why the brand may choose to eliminate this number.

iPhone prices in 2018

iPhone X starting from £999/$999 is the most expensive smartphone in the world (right now towards the end of 2017). We do not think there will be a higher price in 2018. Or there will be a budget-friendly new option to compete with the highly priced iPhones. Because only the older models are affordable for many people, Apple may create an new an affordable alternative. At least we hope that! Time will let us know what will happen in 2018.

iPhone 8 Prices In Different Countries: Where To Buy?

iPhone 8 is one of the latest smart phones in technology world. It may be in the shadow of iPhone X which is the most expensive. Prices for Apple products are usually so unstable that it is even cheaper to travel another country to buy an iPhone. In this post, we will be mentioning of the countries that are advantageous to buy an iPhone 8 from.

One of the most important reasons for prices to change from country to country is the tax in different places. Let’s say you are looking for an 256 GB iPhone 8, you pay 849 USD in USA where in Canada you cannot even buy a 64 GB iPhone 8. There 64 GB iPhone 8 is prices as 929 USD. The list of iPhone 8 prices across the world reaches up to 95800.00 USD in Japan and 321990.00 USD in Hungary. The huge difference is obvious in this list of iPhone 8 prices in different countries.

You can just add some more dollars if you are interested in an iPhone8 Plus.

Considering the low prices of the flight tickets, especially in and around Europe where you pay mostly 100 USD for the flight, you can just travel and buy your brand new iPhone 8. What is more? You can even take a trip of 2 days and the total price is still lower than an iPhone 8 in your own country. So, why should not you take the advantage of different iPhone 8 prices across the world?

Why to try so hard to buy an iPhone 8?

A Review Of iPhone X From An iPhone 7 Plus User

Apple started to sell the most expensive and high tech phone, the iPhone X in the past days. We have heard and told a lot about this phone and it is time for listening from someone who used to have iPhone 7 Plus.

The screen is incredibly beautiful

It is obviously easier to read as if a layer is missing. The difference of the OLED screen is visible. The readability is much higher compared to iPhone 7 Plus. The colors are quite lively and the resolution is higher. Ghosting can occur when you scroll at a certain speed because the text is OLED. But, it does not bother much. Considering the benefits of being a brighter, more vibrant, integrated phone screen, I do not think this is a very big problem.

Camera does not show much improvement

I cannot say iPhone X is much better than the iPhone 7 Plus. It’s nice to have a 1080p 240fps slo-mo video. When it comes to 4k 60fps, it has been a disappointment. Probably because of it’s low bitrate, it’s certainly a low quality than expected.

Yes, the resolution is 4k, Yes it is 60fps, but in bitrate and dynamic range, I guess (I have not confirmed) chroma subsampling at 4: 2: 0. Briefly, do not get very excited when you see the 4k 60fps, as it has a format that will not be used in everyday life. Portrait mode lights of the front camera is interesting but not so special. I am sure third party developers will do better. Especially the stage lighting that darkened the backdrop was a failure when ever I tried it. I’m sure it will evolve over time, but it now deserves its beta position. If you’re shooting lots of photos and especially 4k videos, do not buy a 64GB model, definitely get a 256GB. (there is no 128 model)

 

Face ID is excellent

Face ID works perfectly and smoothly. I have not had the slightest problem. It does not only work from remote and different angles, but I can say it works 100% successfully when considering normal handset usage. Briefly: this is it. Unlike what is written on the Internet, it’s fast. The contents of the notifications do not appear when someone else reads it, it says ‘new notification’, but it turns out to be real content as you look. The light is on as long as you are looking at the screen while reading something, but if you start not to look at it, it will close the screen after a while. These little details in the background make the face ID even more beautiful.

Long story short: if you have money, get it. You will not regret.

Selfie Scenes for immersive, 360-degree selfies on iPhone X

Apple just recently announced a major update to Clips, the free app for iOS that makes it easy to create and share fun videos using iPhone or iPad. Clips introduces Selfie Scenes and adds artistic style transfer effects and a redesigned interface that makes it easier than ever to create great videos on the go.

Selfie Scenes is an exciting new feature that places users into animated, 360-degree scenes when recording selfies. Using the sophisticated TrueDepth camera system on iPhone X, Selfie Scenes transports users into bustling cities, serene landscapes, abstract paintings and even the Millennium Falcon and Mega-Destroyer from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

“Clips users love how quick and easy it is to create amazing videos on iPhone or iPad,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Apps Product Marketing. “And we’re making it even more fun with Selfie Scenes. By harnessing the incredible new TrueDepth camera system on iPhone X, users can now record selfies against a variety of fun and whimsical backdrops with just a tap.”

Apple-Clips-App

New Effects and Stickers with better interface

New artistic effects use advanced machine learning and style transfer technology to turn any photo or video into a moody oil painting, vibrant watercolor or elegant pencil sketch — in real time while recording. Clips also adds more content from Disney, including full-screen posters featuring Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, as well as Star Wars stickers featuring animated versions of Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Chewbacca and others. Users can also add more personality to their Clips videos with 16 new Apple-designed stickers and 21 new royalty-free soundtracks from indie artists. And, as with all Clips soundtracks, these new tracks automatically adjust to match the length of videos.

The easy-to-use interface gets even better with a streamlined design that puts frequently used controls easily within reach. A new Effects browser lets users view and choose filters, labels, stickers and emoji. Labeled buttons make it easier than ever to edit Live Titles, add or change filters, trim, mute and delete clips. And full-screen browsers allow users to see more of their content when viewing their photo library or selecting animated posters.

What Happened In Apple During The Forth Quarter of 2017?

Apple has recently announced financial results for its fiscal 2017 fourth quarter ended September 30, 2017. The Company posted quarterly revenue of $52.6 billion, an increase of 12 percent from the year-ago quarter, and quarterly earnings per diluted share of $2.07, up 24 percent. International sales accounted for 62 percent of the quarter’s revenue.

Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO said, “With fantastic new products including iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K joining our product lineup, we’re looking forward to a great holiday season, and with the launch of iPhone X getting underway right now, we couldn’t be more excited as we begin to deliver our vision for the future with this stunning device.”

“Apple’s year-over-year revenue growth rate accelerated for the fourth consecutive quarter and drove EPS growth of 24 percent in the September quarter,” said Luca Maestri, Apple’s CFO. “We also generated strong operating cash flow of $15.7 billion and returned $11 billion to investors through our capital return program.”Apple is providing the following guidance for its fiscal 2018 first quarter:

  • revenue between $84 billion and $87 billion
  • gross margin between 38 percent and 38.5 percent
  • operating expenses between $7.65 billion and $7.75 billion
  • other income/(expense) of $600 million
  • tax rate of 25.5 percent

What to expect in 2018?

Apple is in the middle of valuable beginning. It isn’t an exact science from this to calculate how many iPhones Apple could sell in the December quarter or in 2018 since there are at least the following variables:

  • The iPhone X was launched over a month later than the other iPhones
  • The current install base is higher
  • There are more first day countries launched for the iPhone 8 and X
  • The 8 and especially the X have higher prices

Still, stocks can be volatile, and the optimism surrounding the iPhone X and iPhone 8 could turn to disappointment if sales of the new offerings fail to live up to expectations. But Apple is by far the closest, currently commanding a market value about $175 billion above the world’s second largest public company, Google parent Alphabet.

Apple Has Something To Confess About iPhone X Screens

Burn-in and color shift issues that have been a victim of Google’s customers across the globe around the world can also be experienced on iPhone X, according to Apple’s reports.

In 2017 the world started to use OLED display. However, technology giants may have made research and development activities quite fast to put these screens into our pocket and serialize their devices. OLEDs, a new technology yet, are a potential problem when compared to other displays in long-term use. Those who live in Google’s Pixel 2 XL are the clearest proof of this.

What is the screen issue on OLEDs?

Burns on OLED screens occur when something reflected in the image leaves stains on certain areas, even if you leave the screen. For example, when you exit the messaging application and come to the main page, you can see that the texts in the messages leave some stains.

Apple seems to have taken lessons from Google’s problems and wants to soften any possible complaints about the OLED screen with “Super Retina” technology. We think it would be better if we keep moving this part from Apple’s mouth:

“With extended long-term use, OLED displays can also show slight visual changes. This is also expected behaviour and can include ‘image persistence’ or ‘burn-in’, where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen. This can occur in more extreme cases such as when the same high contrast image is continuously displayed for prolonged periods of time. We’ve engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED ‘burn-in’.”

Of course, these problems are not something the producers are expecting, but OLED screens, on the other hand, mean they are not ready for serial production. Although Apple is making this statement to anticipate potential impacts, it is natural for users to worry.

Android or iPhone: What To Buy?

iPhone have been considered to be best in smartphone world without questioning for long time. It was usually a matter of money. If you were willing to pay more for a good smartphone, iPhone was the answer. Time have changed. Now, technology is bouncing off the walls. As a result, when it comes to buy a smartphone, a comparison between Android and iOS is more than the cost. We expect our phone both to have great features and to look perfect. So, let’s have a look at a detailed comparison between Android based devices and iPhones.

Hardware

Android offers both open source and far more open to alternative applications. Keep in mind, Apple hasn’t ported any of its applications to Android. Android gives you the power of choice. Google offers its Android software to many phone makers, including Samsung, HTC, LG, Motorola, etc. Because of that, Android phones vary widely in size, weight, features, and quality. Only Apple makes iPhones, so it has extremely tight control over how the software and hardware work together.

If you’re buying an iPhone, you just need to pick your model. Because Androids are made by different companies, you have to pick both a brand and a model, which can be confusing and overwhelming.

Android vs Apple

Compatibility

Android makers are very slow about updating their phones to the latest Android OS version, and older phones will no longer have support for the latest OS. This is one of the biggest dilemma between Apple and other smartphones. With many Android phones, you can insert a microSD card. Expandable memory cards available on most Android phones means you have versatility and the ability to grow your phone alongside the growing demands you have for your wireless device while, it’s possible to buy iPhones with a lot of storage, but not all models offer 128GB.

Most people use a tablet, computer, or wearable in addition to their smartphone. For those people, Apple offers a more consistent and integrated experience. Because Apple makes computers, tablets, and watches along with the iPhone, it offers things that Android can’t.

Applications

The Apple App Store offers fewer apps than Google Play and Apple is famously strict about what apps it allows, while Google’s standards for Android are lax. On the other hand, a few years ago, developers released their apps for iOS first, and Android users tended to have to wait a while before they could get them.

Apple Apps are more beautifully designed, easy to use and are presented in a well-organized iTunes Store. Android offers an extensive range of Apps in the Google Play store.

Apple vs Samsung

Design

People love to say Apple products just work. It’s certainly true that the iOS interface is easy to use. But so is the Android interface. Frankly, if you can use one, you won’t have much trouble using the other. Android-powered smartphones mean the freedom to choose the design that most appeals to you. No rigid design parameters like the iPhone. You choose amongst the widest range of sleek Android phone designs and find the design that appeals most to your individual tastes.

In terms of User Interface and experience, Apple seems to clearly top the charts, followed closely by Android at the second place. iOS offers a simple and clean interface, that is easy to use and navigate, but Android offers a deep-set of menus to choose and use.

Apple Pricing and Discounts In Different Countries: Where To Go for A Cheap Apple

Apple is one of the love brands that are widely preferred around the world. The brand announced new products recently, among which iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X have already took their place among the most popular smart phones despite their really high prices. On the other hand, the fact that the prices and discounts are similar in every country. So, which countries are more advantageous in terms of prices of Apple?

The cheapest iPhone X on Apple stores costs 999 USD in USA while the cheapest iPhone 8 is 699 and iPhone 8 Plus 799 USD. In Europe, the price of iPhone X goes higher up to 1149 Euros in Germany while it is 1579 USD in Australia. When we check the price list in England, iPhone X comes up as 999 Pound, iPhone 8 649 Pound and iPhone 8 Plus 799 Pound.

the cheapest iPhone

Heading to USA for a cheaper Apple

The prices quoted for US customers are exclusive of sales taxes, which vary state-by-state, while the UK prices include VAT. So it is a worldwide trend to buy Apple products during a travel to USA (even traveling to USA just to purchase an Apple); however, this gets less appealing as you have to pay VAT when you turn back to your own country. Especially in Europe, products such as iPhone X are so expensive that  it’s led thousands to eye-up transatlantic flights to see if it’s cheaper to fly across the pond to buy it. And it is, even with the cost of the flight, but there’s a catch: you would become an international electronics smuggler in doing so.

On the other hand, a flight ticket, the price for an iPhone and VAT in your country and accommodation costs may be very same with the price of an iPhone in your own country. The same amount of money may cover the expenses of a travel in a far country, which is not totally a bad idea. So just choose your own way!

Hey Apple! Tell Us More About Mac mini, please

Mac mini, Apple’s most affordable and compact desktop solution, was last renewed on October 16, 2014. The device has not seen any updates since then.

Designed with the “move along” concept without a keyboard, mouse, and monitor, the Mac mini is a great solution for those who want to take their computer from home to work, from home to work, thanks to its small size. Equipped with Haswell processors, the Mac minis with the Intel HD 5000 / Intel Iris graphics chip had many curious Mac owners at affordable prices.

Apple has not been able to renew the Mac mini since 2014, disappointing many users. Mac mini has been updated in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014 respectively. Apple had never had a break for 3 years before it was renewing the product. The number of Apple customers waiting for a new Mac mini is unimportant.

As for the subject, Apple Marketing Chief Phil Schiller said the company does not have a plan to turn its back on Mac mini when it considers the Mac mini to be “an important product” for the company. Nevertheless, he was reluctant to provide history and information for a potential renewal planned for the future.

Tim Cook: Mac mini won’t die

Tim Cook also have given some information about the future of Mac mini. According to this information, Mac mini with a practical size will not get lost in the dusty pages of history. Despite the fact that it is not being talked as much as other devices Tim Cook considers this computer is very important for the future of the company. Stating that they love small sized device, they will increase the amount of interest on this computer.

As a matter of fact, the rest of Apple’s mini Mac family is built on Intel Haswell processors, to be remembered. The graphics cards are Intel HD 5000 / Iris Graphic computers, starting at $ 2,300. The device, which opens up the affordable Mac experience with the monitor or television on hand, can make a difference when it is updated. Support for up-to-date imaging technologies can bring the smallest one of family back to the agenda, which is quite good for users.

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.

iphone 8 iPhone 6s comparison

 

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’ve 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.
