iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, how are they different?

After a wait of a year finally, Apple has revealed official details about their latest devices. This time Apple moved out of the way and launched three devices, although it was the same case last time too, last time the third device was quite unique, and Apple changed the way their UI was working totally since last decade. This year they have dropped the working of their OS totally and have moved with the same iPhone X’s method. Today we are here to find out what are the differences between the Apple iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and the iPhone Xr Physically, Internally, and in User Experience. So it can become easy for you to decide the best one to pick one.
iPhone XS, XS Max & XR
Compare Apple iPhone XS, XS Max & iPhone XR

Design – iPhone XS, XS Max & XR

Both the iPhone Xs and the Xs Max looks same in design with the last year’s iPhone X. The Xs is the exact upgrade and just have got exact on the external point of view what the last gen phone had. iPhone Xs Max is a tad larger one with a screen on 6.5 – inches. The larger device has got the same design just in the bigger format with the same all screen design which consists of a notch and no home button whatsoever visible. Design difference is what you can find in the iPhone Xr which is different drastically both from the Xs and the Xs Max. This time the third phone is a take from the year-ago philosophy which was used with the iPhone 5s & 5c, but this year it is new colours and a much more modern take. The design of this device comes with a large number of bezels which is quite disappointing, and even on the side of the device we have 7000-grade aluminum unlike the Stainless Steel frames of the iPhone Xs and the Xs Max. All these are done in favor to get a cheaper costing of the phone.

Display – iPhone XS, XS Max & XR

Apple has this time went totally against their policy of small phones seeing the ratio with which Android phones are growing in numbers just due to their screen size. This year Apple got the iPhone Xs with a 5.8-inch display which is same as the last years iPhone X and uses the same technology, although this year they have improved on the contrast ratios of the panel. As the Xs and the Xs Max both are identical, so the Max version gets a 6.5-inch display with the same technology as the Apple’s Xs Max. Talking about the unique one in the lot which they are referring to as a budget phone to carter the lower price ranged audience in order to protect them from going with the older models i.e. The iPhone Xr. iPhone Xr gets a 6.1-inch display which is an LCD panel and looks quite average when compared to the products launched alongside the device. The colours on this unit are going to be less vibrant and the images are for sure going to have a bit of less sharpness when compared to the other two launched, but yes this screen is larger than the iPhone Xs and a tad smaller than Xs Max and hence this sits between the two especially in size comparison.

Performance – iPhone XS, XS Max & XR

On the performance factor, all the three phones are comparable and have equivalent performance thanks to the OS hardware is being driven by. Talking about the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max both the devices happens to have the same chipset the Apple A12 which was launched with the device itself, it is a huge upgrade from the A11 chip. This is also one of the only mobile chipset being mass manufactured at 7nm proves. The battery life, real-time performance, and the smooth gestures, and animations will work quite great. iPhone XS is said to boost an A11 chip that was used last time with the iPhone X, and this does make it quite a snappy device even today although it is using the same old last year’s chip. Although this won’t matter much as Apple is renowned to be making chipsets that are quite sufficient to work for the next 4 – 5 years, and hence this one is no exception. The iPhone Xr is said to boost 3GB RAM while the iPhone XS and iPhone XS max will be featured with 4GB of RAM. These are not huge differentiating numbers, but when someone does pay an amount it is worth considering.

Camera – iPhone XS, XS Max & XR

All the three devices get a single camera sensor the same, while on the XS and the XS Max we get a bit different setup where we get the secondary camera same. On the iPhone XR which is their cheapest offering still, it is the costliest product in the market gets only a single camera which is quite disappointing. When it comes to XS and XS Max their setup is quite good at the rear. For the front, we have all the three devices boosting the same hardware. This does counts that Apple has mostly done research on the chipset this time, as there are not much hardware changes, and all the three devices have the same hardware basically.

Pricing – iPhone XS, XS Max & XR

Apple never liked to talk about anything else apart from the above 4 factors, so another major factor comes in the count is the pricing. Although this doesn’t play a huge role as many time the devices are available on contract, but if anyone needs an off-contract device so that they can use it with their opinion of wireless provider than the iPhone XR which is the cheapest of the lot will cost you GBP 580 which is around the Samsung’s current flagship the Galaxy Note 9. And this does make the Apple devices no ways cheaper as it was just the entry-level phone for this year’s lineup. The iPhone XS the successor to the iPhone X costs GBP 760 which is the same as last year, and the iPhone XS Max will cost you GBP 840. Do mind that this pricing is just the base model pricing, and if you need a higher storage one then you will do need to opt for a better and much more costly offering from Apple. What do you think about the three devices? Do let us know your thoughts in the comment, and also let us know if we missed anything.

Apple AirPods’ Launch Date Delayed, the Wireless Headphones Aren’t Ready For Public Release, Says Company

The future is not ready for coming just yet. Apple has declared that its AirPods, the wireless headphones which the company was set to launch this month, are not ready.

The AirPods were first revealed alongside the iPhone 7 at an event previous month. And the two belonged to the same pitch – only as Apple had done with removing the headphone jack, the AirPods were meant for signaling that the company was prepared for the wireless future.

The AirPods created from the ground up for the new vision of listening of Apple. Not just do they not have wires for plugging into the phone, but also they do not have wires between them either – comprising of 2 little bits of plastic which plug into every ear.

iPhone wireless Airpods

In addition, playing music wirelessly from a mobile, the headphones have specific hardware which enables them connecting to other devices like Apple watches or Macs if they are in range.
However, presently Apple has said that the new wireless earphones are not ready and so will not be going on sale this month.

An Apple spokesperson said that the previous response to AirPods has been great. They do not believe in shipping an item before it is ready and they require a little more time before AirPods are prepared for their clients.
It is still unclear what is wrong with the earphones or when they will be launched.

The news arrives at an intense time for Apple. It was declared just a day before Apple unveils its new MacBook – an event which some thought would add the launch of the AirPods, too – and early after Apple declared its worst outcomes in fifteen years.

As of now, some previous versions of the AirPods have been given out to the journalists. It does not appear that any of these review units have undergone substantial problems.

BlackBerry is done with Designing & Building Its Own Signature Phones

BlackBerry has declared that it is going to stop making its own signature phones as the struggling organisation is continuously targeting its software and security products. This is quite far from the end of BlackBerry devices, the building of which is going to be outsourced to the third-party makers – as was the case with the organisation’s latest DTEK 50, a clone of Idol 4 of Alcatel with the BlackBerry branding.

In a statement, John Chen, the CEO said that the company planned to end every internal hardware development and would be going to outsource that particular function to the partners. He also added that the company would be meeting an inflectional point with their methods. Their financial foundation was always powerful and their focus on software would be taking hold.

blackberry android smartphone dtek50

If we consider the on-going struggle of BlackBerry in the mobile market, then this is not at all amazing news. Gartner guesses that the company proclaimed only 0.1% of the market in the 2nd quarter, balancing to sales of nearly 400,400 units.
However, although BlackBerry is going to cease the internal hardware development, this does not mean that this is the end of BlackBerry as a customer tech company. The company has only been trying to cover its retreat, aiming just governments and businesses and maintaining its reputation for the purpose of security.

Chen actually took control of the weak manufacturer charged with bringing it back to financial health. Earlier also he stated that the company’s one and only target would be on enterprise software and proclaimed in May 2016 that he would get the information by September 2016 whether or not the company would continue designing and building its own signature phones.
BlackBerry possibly could partner with big name partners, and so probably its every device will be aimed at a small number of business users.
