HomePod arrived February 9, Have You Seen?

HomePod, the innovative wireless speaker from Apple, arrives in stores beginning Friday, February 9 and is available to order online this Friday, January 26 in the US, UK and Australia. HomePod will arrive in France and Germany this spring.

HomePod delivers stunning audio quality wherever it’s placed — in any room in the house, playing any style of music. Using just your voice, it’s easy and fun to use, and works together with an Apple Music subscription for a breakthrough music experience, providing access to one of the world’s largest cloud music libraries.

Siri, now actively used on over half a billion devices, has developed a deep knowledge of music and understands your preferences and tastes. And with Siri, HomePod can send a message, set a timer, play a podcast, check the news, sports, traffic and weather, and even control a wide range of HomeKit smart home accessories.

“HomePod is a magical new music experience from Apple. It brings advanced audio technologies like beam-forming tweeters, a high-excursion woofer and automatic spatial awareness, together with the entire Apple Music catalog and the latest Siri intelligence, in a simple, beautiful design that is so much fun to use,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

“We’re so excited for people to get HomePod into their homes, apartments and businesses to hear it for themselves. We think they will be blown away by the audio quality. The team has worked to give Siri a deeper knowledge of music so that you can ask to play virtually anything from your personal favorites to the latest chart-topping releases, simply by saying ‘Hey Siri.’”

Audio Innovations and Technologies

At just under 7 inches tall, HomePod represents years of hardware and software innovation:

  • Packed with Apple-engineered audio technology, HomePod uses advanced software for real-time acoustic modeling, audio beam-forming, echo cancellation and more, powered by Apple’s A8 chip, delivering a wide, spacious soundstage. Using spatial awareness to sense its location in the room, it automatically adjusts the audio to sound great wherever it is placed.
  • HomePod features a large, Apple-designed woofer for deep, clean bass, a custom array of seven beam-forming tweeters that provide pure high frequency acoustics with directional control, and powerful technologies that preserve the richness and intent of original recordings. With an array of six microphones, HomePod can hear “Hey Siri” from across the room, even when loud music is playing.
  • Setup is as easy and intuitive as setting up AirPods — simply hold an iPhone next to HomePod and it’s ready to start playing music in seconds. The Siri waveform appears on the top to indicate when Siri is engaged, and integrated touch controls also allow easy navigation.

How to check iPhone processor speed?

How affected are Apple’s deliberately slowing iPhone models? iPhone processor speed can be easily controlled. The repercussions of explaining that Apple is slowing iPhones that are in bad condition are still continuing. In the past days, the company started apologizing for this situation with a discounted battery exchange program. But users do not seem to even satisfy this application.

To check processor speed

After Apple’s announcement, many users learned the battery health of their phones through various applications and Apple Support. How bad is your iPhone’s CPU speed if your battery is bad? You can easily find the answer to this question with an App Store app.

With Lirum Device Info Lite, iPhone processor speed can be learned. It is described as:

Lirum Device Info Lite is the most complete and elegant application to retrieve specifications of your device. You will be able to monitor its performance, watch real time CPU usage graphs, and discover a lot more about your iDevice.
It’s a system monitor and diagnostic tool for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

You can find out if your iPhone’s processor is slowing down by following these steps.

Step 1: Download Lirum Device Info Lite from the App Store. You can use this link to download Lirum Device Info Lite which is free.

Step 2: Start the app and touch the Options button when you click the Options button in the top left corner of the screen.

Step 3: Touch the CPU.

This metric must have the same or very close values. If your phone is too hot or in low power mode, the clock speed may be low. Under normal conditions, the phone should be equal to the original processor speed.

As you can see, there is no loss in processor speed (1.4 GHz) of our 3.5 year old iPhone 6 device with battery health of 88%. If the numbers on your phone are different, then it is time to change the battery.

What’s coming with iOS 11.3?

Performance issue is being resolved with iOS 11.3, the next version of iOS operating system. In addition, Apple announced the coming innovations with iOS 11.3 on its website. Let’s take a look at the innovations that will come together.

Test results of IOS 11.3, which is made available for developers, emerged. It can be seen that performance in published GeekBench scores clearly increased.

The single core result has risen from 1306 to 1510. In the test where all the cores are used, the scissors in the middle is getting more open. The multi-core score of 2247 goes up to 1621 with the 11.3 version.

New Animoji Characters

The animation that comes with iPhone X, thanks to TrueDepth camera technology, allows you to send emoticons in three dimensions by sensing your facial expressions.

With iOS 11.3, there are 4 new animations. These are lions, bears, dragons and skulls. With these 4 animations, there will be a total of 16 animations that iPhone users can use.

Augmented Reality technology was one of the issues that became important with iOS 11. With iOS 11.3, the operating system’s AR technology goes even further. With ARKit 1.5, which comes with iOS 11.3, horizontal surfaces such as tables and chairs can now be detected on vertical surfaces such as walls or doors. At the same time, the ARKit is now able to perceive items with irregular shapes such as a round table.

On the other hand, another feature that comes to mind about AR is 2D stuff. Plates, posters or works of art can now be perceived by ARKIT. The user will be able to interactively view 2D items on the camera. For example, by reading the poster of a work of art in a museum, you will be able to see and experience the 3-dimensional state of that work on your phone. Finally, for ARKIT, the camera will offer 50% better resolution and will have support for auto focus.

iOS 11.3 apple

Battery and Performance

New information is added to the Battery tab in the Settings app with iOS 11.3. Users may have information about the health of the battery under the battery tab and whether it should take it away.

Let’s just say that this feature will only be available after iPhone 6 and later.

At the same time, the power management system, which reduces the processor speed, can be turned off in case of short battery life and shortened battery life in order to extend the life of the device.

Commercial chat feature

Another feature that comes to the fore in iOS 11.3 is commercial chat. Offered under the name Business Chat, this feature allows customers to communicate with the organization only by messaging without having to go to or search for the institution. This feature, which will be released as Beta with 11.3, will initially be supported by Wells Fargo, Hilton, Lowe’s, Discover and a number of other companies.

The customer will be able to make hotel reservations through Apple Payments by messaging with the relevant institution. Yada will be able to purchase a chair that she likes to chat with Lowe’s. If the feature will be coming to Turkey and it will be supported by the company which is currently unclear. One of the highlighted features is that Apple does not forward the contact information of the client to the related companies.

Should You Buy A Macbook Air or Macbook Pro: With Price Comparison

Apple offers Macbook Air in different inches and Pro with different sizes of inch. From the most affordable 13-inch MacBook Air to super-light 12-inch MacBook and the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros with the Touch Bar, Apple offers variety of laptops.

Most Affordable, Longest-Lasting

The MacBook Air is the cheapest notebook in Apple’s lineup at $999, especially now that the 11-inch $899 MacBook Air has been retired. Its battery last about 10.5 hours. Especially for its battery performance it’s a good choice for students with its price. The latest version offers a slightly faster Core i5 processor. MacBook Air’s full-size USB ports and an SD card slot, makes transferring photos from your camera easier.

Most Portable: 12-inch MacBook

MacBook especially for travelers is a one good choice with its being very slim and very light feature. It’s being only 2 pound makes it ultraportable to get. You’ll barely notice this notebook in your bag. The sharp and colorful Retina Display offers good resolution and its strong 9.5 hours of battery life is better than many Windows ultraportables this thin.

The latest version offers a faster Kaby Lake chip, let’s MacBook have an improved keyboard for better typing comfort.

Key Points:

  • The body is constructed from aluminum for both. The 13-inch model is 17% thinner than the outgoing model, with 23% less volume, while the 15-inch is also 14% thinner with 20% less volume
  • The 1.8GHz of the MacBook Air has to stand up to MacBook Pros at 2.3GHz or 3.1GHz – and those are just the default configurations.
  • You can upgrade the Air to a 2.2GHz processor if 1.8 just isn’t enough for you, while options on the Pro depend on if you want the Touch Bar or not. Without, you can go up to 2.5GHz, but models with the Touch Bar can be upgraded up to 3.5GHz.
  • The MacBook Air doesn’t have a Retina display, so the pixel density is lower. The Air has a 1440×900 screen resolution compared to the 2560×1600 resolution on the 13in MacBook Pro.

The MacBook Air is available with a choice of 128GB or 256GB storage, as well as a 512GB build-to-order option. The MacBook Pro offers 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage.

Tim Cook’s graduation talk was announced with Animoji!

Duke University announces Tim Cook’s graduation talks to be held in May with an Animoji video on YouTube.

Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, graduated from Duke University in 1988. As a graduate student, Tim Cook will make a speech on graduation ceremony on May 13th and this event has turned into a great gesture from the University of Duke.

Tim Cook in Animoji videos

Duke University announces in the form of Animoji that Tim Cook will speak on graduation via YouTube channel. Tim Cook is probably Duke’s most famous alum at the moment, so it makes sense that he accepted to speak to the graduating students in May, but the foxy form he appears in at the end of the video shows how proud Apple is of its iPhone X’s FaceID and Animoji creations.

You can watch the Animoji video here, which Tim Cook also plays.

Duke University President Vincent E. Price made the announcement, touting Cook’s accomplishments at both Apple and in his advocacy for social justice. Duke’s graduation will be held on Sunday, May 13, 2018.

“I am absolutely delighted that Tim Cook will be returning to campus as this spring’s commencement speaker,” said Price. “Throughout his career, Tim has embodied Duke’s values of innovation and service to society, whether through his contributions to Apple’s groundbreaking technology or his advocacy for social justice. I can imagine no better person, and no bigger Duke fan, to inspire the Class of 2018.”

Thanks to the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera system on the iPhoneX, Animoji has become popular with karaoke videos in a short period of time. Animoji, which is quite fun to use in everyday life, has given also a pleasing news when it is used in an announcement.

We anticipate adding new features to the Animoji options with future iOS updates in the upcoming period.

How to test iPhone battery?

Apple has made a scandalous statement in recent days, saying that iPhone slows down because of battery health drops. Although they apologized to the users upon reactions, users want to be aware of the iPhone battery test.

iPhone battery test is easy!

It is quite easy for iPhone users to test the health of their batteries, and it is now possible to see the status of your battery in a very simple way thanks to the well-known application called Battery Life, developed by a developer named Victor Robinson. This application, which has a fairly simple interface, is available free of charge on the AppStore.

iphone-battery test

You can download the Battery Life application using this link and measure your iPhone battery health. The app is described as “Did you ever worry about your battery? Battery Life give you information to let our know more about your devices’ battery.” on AppStore.

It is already rated by 81 users and it got 3.5 points out of 5. One of the users also left a comment indicating, “Need to improve visuality. Other things work good. Can see design capacity. It’s done.” This comment is accompanied by a 5 stars.

Get a Discounted Battery From Apple

Since Apple’s confessed to slowing down old iPhones with degraded batteries, the company has gone on to offer a discount on replacement batteries, after classifying them as consumable components. It will also update iOS 11 itself to include more detailed information about your battery.

iphone battery

Instead of the usual $79 charge for replacing a battery out of warranty, you can get it replaced by Apple for $29 beginning in late January 2018. The company will release more details about the process “soon,” according to a press release.

If you’ve got a bad battery, you could always replace it at the Apple Store. You could also take it to a smartphone repair retailer, though you’ll be paying an estimated $69.99, which seems a bit steep compared to the alternative.

IOS update about slow iPhone is on the way!

Apple CEO Tim Cook came up with an explanation on iPhones that are slowing down. Cook said that with an iOS update, users would be able to enrich the iPhone’s performance.

Apple’s iPhones are slowing down and this issue is protecting the place on the agenda due to lawsuits and explanations. A feature that the company adds to iOS versions in order to prevent iPhone from closing down due to battery problems is slowing iPhone down.

iphone_slow down

 

There was general consensus among users that Apple slowed iPhone with every iOS update. This situation became clear with the admission from the company regarding the matter. Apple apologized to users and made serious discounts on battery replacement. However, users continue to react to this policy of the company.

People are getting angry at Apple

This reaction has turned into a mass action. Recently in South Korea, 370,000 people applied to the court for the slow iPhone. This has probably caused Apple to take more serious steps in the matter. Tim Cook, who has not commented on the subject so far, said they would come up with an iOS update that would prevent iPhones from slowing down in a statement to ABC News.

The update that Tim Cook mentions is about whether users’ iPhone performance will be lowered. The user will be able to use the device with full performance if they prefer. Cook said that iPhone owners would be able to get rid of the performance degradation they are bringing to prevent the iPhone from closing down one by one.

Cook indicated that the iPhone battery status of the update would also be shown. Apple has previously announced that the company will publish an iOS update to learn the iPhone battery health.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were also included among the iPhones that slowed down depending on the battery condition with iOS 11.2. The update Tim Cook mentioned (probably iOS 11.3) will start testing from February. It will probably be released in March.

Which Countries Are Cheapest to Buy Apple Products?

It is certain that Apple is a world leader in technology and innovation. As a result, its products are highly demanded throughout the world. Due to various production costs and foreign exchange rates, all countries charge different prices to customers. Here we will examine the countries where you can afford an iPhone, an iPad or a Macbook with relative ease.

Apple Prices: US is the Cheapest

United States of America, as Apple’s home country, is one of the places that one can afford Apple products without difficulty. Yet the critical point is that the states usually charge different tax rates and import duties. For example New Hampshire may be a good destination for you compared to Washington, as the former doesn’t charge a sales tax. In Atlantic side, Canada is also preferable when you consider the local purchasing power.

Another destination is United Kingdom. Although the pound has tumbled against dollar, UK is still a considerable place to get an Apple product. Actually, European markets are not as profitable as the ones in US, but they are generally not extremely costly. The Apple prices especially in Luxembourg, Austria and Germany are moderate. But it is not valid for Europe as a whole: Hungary is probably the most expensive place to purchase an Apple product, you should definitely shun it.

When we come to Asian markets, buying Apple products from China or India is relatively expensive. Asian customers prefer buying them from Japan and Hong Kong as the prices in these two countries are reasonable compared to the former two. United Arab Emirates is another place where the price of an Apple product is bearable in terms of US dollars.

These are the countries where you can find an Apple product without having a great difficulty as long as you consider the sales taxes, import duties, various warranty policies of countries and other transaction costs.

With some third-party applications that are compatible with Apple Watch, you can also check over your nutrition patterns.

Moreover, Apple Watch can monitor your heartbeat rate during different periods such as resting, workout and share the results with you. You can also choose to receive a notification when your heartbeat rate gets above a specific threshold while you are inactive. Thus, Apple Watch can even save your life against a risk of heart attack.

Apple Watch is a useful and comfortable device in many aspects. When its simple and elegant appearance is also considered, it can be said that Apple Watch is definitely worth buying.

iOS-vs-Android

4 Basic Differences Between iOS And Android

Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS are operating systems used basically in mobile technology, such as tablets and smartphones. Android, which is Linux-based and partly open source, is more PC-like than iOS, in that its basic features are generally more customizable from top to bottom. For some, iOS’ uniform design elements are sometimes seen as being more user-friendly. Besides, people use iOS and Android platforms to code on.

So, what are the basic 4 differences between iOS and Android?

1- Coding Language

Java is the language for Android applications development.In turn, programmers use Objective-C and Swift to create software for iOS platforms.

In order to create an app for iOS you have to have an original Apple device (e.g Macbook). Many startups choose to start with iOS first, because it requires less time and resources.

2- Design

Apple has a minimalistic, concise design in its pictograms, icons and buttons . iOS has separate miniature windows; Android has interchangeable tabs that fit across almost the entire screen. The platforms also have different styles of buttons, with floating buttons that cast shade on Android devices, and the more stylistic simple and aesthetically modern design of iOS.

Android-versus-iOS

3- Speed

An iPhone 6s handily beat a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 in on speed test that involved opening several apps one by one. Both Android and iOS allow you to see your battery usage at a glance, broken down by app, but only Android shows an estimate of how much battery life you have left. Apple’s iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X all offer wireless charging and fast charging.

4- Security 

Apple prioritizes user privacy, so you can feel safe knowing your personal data is not stored or read by Apple. It is all encrypted, too. Meanwhile, Android encrypts some data, but your privacy is less protected. Google mines your data for information that it can use to sell better ads and market products to you.

Inspiring concept for iOS 12

The concept design work for iOS 12 comes up with pretty good ideas. Here are concepts that iOS users will be very pleased with. What can be offered with the iOS 12? In the iOS 12 concept study by Ascending News, an even more simplified interface is considered. The clean and more aesthetic design appeals to the eye.

In addition, grouped notifications make us say “That’s it!” This feature, which collects multiple notifications from the same application in a single window on the Lock Screen, will hopefully real one day. As you know, when multiple messages arrive through WhatsApp, the screen fills up.

What is new in iOS 12?

A simpler display to make room for local storage is a great solution, which will catch up with the overflowing crowd. Guest Mode can make you comfortable when you entrust your device to those who want to look at your iPhone. The mode that prevents access to applications is very useful by protecting your photos or messages from unauthorized eyes. Reducing the need for power with less pixel and black and white transition to extend the battery life is also considered logical.

iphone-8-price

It’s too early to know what features Apple is planning to add (other than improved Shazam integration, following Apple’s acquisition of the company), but we’ve got a long list of wished-for features we didn’t get last time.

When the active screen feature is always turned on and the screen is touched, it is targeted to look at the desired information quickly. The use of Face ID or Touch ID to lock down apps is also an innovation that we do not yet understand why Apple does not offer. With this feature, it is stated that you will only be sure that you are opening applications.

One day in the hope that Apple will take into account these feedbacks and add more features like this to future iOS releases.

Apple explained why old iPhones are slowing down

Over the years, users have noticed that older model iPhones slow down over time. The users who constantly voiced this on many platforms have finally got their explanations. This process, which began with Reddit users noticing that Apple slowed old iPhones with low-capacity batteries, ended with Apple’s statement.

iPhone users are now confident that Apple’s CPU speed has been reduced due to battery capacity over time. Over time, Geekbench developer John Poole, who revealed the performance difference between iPhone 6S and iPhone 7, revealed that Apple’s iOS 10.2.1 and 11.2.0 updates initiate processor reduction for different devices. Especially the iOS 10.2.1 update is surprising because this update was specifically designed to reduce random shutdown problems for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S. Apparently Apple is restricting the CPU to prevent a random shutdown of the phone. Moreover, Geekbench also reports that iOS 11.2.0 offers similar reduction methods for the iPhone 7 series with older batteries.

iPhone users who do not resort to this method are likely to get a top-of-the-line iPhone. People can be thinking that “I need to change my iPhone”, not “I am changing my battery as my iPhone is slow.”

Apple did not reject these findings. However, they explained that this was not the intention of the company in explaining what they did:

Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future.

Eyebrows In Action For Rainbow Game Of iPhone X

Do you like playing games that are full of fun? If you own an iPhone X smartphone, you can have fun with Rainbow, which you can play using your eyebrows. The simple game developed by Nathan Gitter, a graduate of the Washington University computer science department, benefits from the blessings of the TrueDepth Camera system, as you would guess.

The mobile game Rainbow you can play with your eyebrows!

In the game you have to use your eyebrows to move up and down an emoji face to gather stars. Pretty simple. In the meantime, you have to overcome other emoji obstacles that will come out like cars, basketballs and ducks. Too much fun.

There is no level in the play, so as you progress, the obstacles increase and the game starts to get harder. Your goal is to get the highest possible score. Let’s just say that you are your only rival for now. On the other hand, the game is planned to have Game Center integration later and to provide multi-player competition.

The game tracking the face of the user in real time follows the location, topology and expression. The privacy policy underlines that the collected data will only be used for gaming purposes and will be hosted locally on the device. In addition, the data will only be used in the game session.

You can click here to download the completely free Rainbow for iOS game from the App Store.

What is TrueDepth tech?

TrueDepth technology is the part making Face ID with facial recogniyion possible in iPhone. TrueDepth also enables Apple’s new Animojis and other special effects that require a 3D model of the user’s face and head.

TrueDepth starts with a traditional 7MP front-facing “selfie” camera. It adds an infrared emitter that projects over 30,000 dots in a known pattern onto the user’s face. Those dots are then photographed by a dedicated infrared camera for analysis. There is a proximity sensor, presumably so that the system knows when a user is close enough to activate. An ambient light sensor helps the system set output light levels.

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.

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.
