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.

iPhone SE 2: Release date and Rumors

The stories surrounding the much-awaited introduction of Apple’s iPhone SE 2, a power-packed successor of iPhone SE launched in 2016, has gained considerable hype in the recent past.

Recent rumours convey that Apple doesn’t have adequate resources to introduce iPhone SE 2 right now. Though iPhone SE might get an update this year in March, iPhone SE 2 might not be just a mini budget iPhone as anticipated previously.

The word on the street is that iPhone SE 2 (SE meaning Special Edition) is most probably a functional cross between iPhone SE and iPhone X. iPhone X being one of the star products from the company and iPhone SE being the cheapest iPhone available, it will be fascinating to see what Apple brings on table as iPhone SE 2.

According to some of the speculations, iPhone SE 2 might feature Face ID with notch screen design and a 6.1 LED panel. Apple is expected to deliver hardware specifications like A10 chip, 2GB of RAM, 32GB/128GB of storage, plus 12Mp/5Mp cameras and a 1,700mAh battery. This wireless charging facilitated device might drop features like 3D sensing and 3D touch in order to cut back the cost.

So, when is the release date?

A report from Tekz24 suggests that Apple is at present working on a device, whereas other sources believe that the company might declare the release date soon. Apple might unveil iPhone SE 2 at its Spring event, held in March. Digitimes analyst Luke Lin believes Apple will launch the phone in the second quarter, around May-June.

What will be the price of iPhone SE 2?

Like the specifications, a lot of stories around the pricing of iPhone SE 2 have surfaced. If I make an educated guess, the iPhone SE 2 is expected to come in a price range of £649 to £749 in the UK market.

Face ID recognization of Apple iPhone X – What and How?

The way you unlock your Apple iPhone X has been of great importance to the Apple team. The very first iPhone had a slider; you had to slide to unlock your device. The next iPhone came with a new technology which was called the touch ID. Touch ID was a major break-through made by Apple in the security of phones.

They now move on to an all new level with the introduction of face ID recognization. When you need to unlock your iPhone X, all you need to do is look at it.

Face ID works with the help of true depth camera system. This comprises of –

  • Infrared Camera
  • Flood Illuminator
  • Front Camera
  • Dot Projector
  • Proximity Sensor
  • Ambient Light SensorApple Face ID

Whenever you look at your iPhone it detects your face using the flood illuminator. iPhone X is capable of doing this in dark as well. The IR camera takes an IR image, the dot projectors read your face by projecting approximately more than 30000 dots. iPhone X takes the matrix from the dot projector and the IR image to create a mathematical model of your face. This mathematical model is compared with the mathematical model which is already saved on your iPhone (while setting it up the iPhone this mathematical model is captured by the phone). If both the mathematical models match phone gets unlocked.

Face ID gives you instructions on how you need to move your face while setting it up. iPhone X learns your face so well that even if you change your hairstyle or put on glasses, it still recognizes you without any issues. iPhone X also recognizes that whether you are looking at your phone or not. If you hold your phone in front of your face and don’t look at it, it would stay locked.

iPhone 8 Launch Date Leaked? Here’s All You Need To Know!

Ever since iPhone 5, Apple has always followed the trend of launching their device in September. However, if the latest rumours are to be believed, the mega giant would no longer be carrying the tradition with its much awaited iPhone 8. Even a report on a potential Apple supplier seems to indicate that the new device may indeed arrive a bit late than what it was expected earlier.

This latest information has come from a company named Finisar, which is thought to be providing Apple with high-tech lasers built into the latest device. These lasers are developed for various things including AR depth mapping and image recognition. The report is claiming that one big company will be buying bulk units of these specialised lasers- almost tens of millions of units towards the end of 2017. And experts believe that this company is Apple.

apple iphone 8

Now, if this report is true, Finisar’s upcoming production schedule is a good indicator of iPhone 8’s release date. According to Loup Ventures, which connected these speculations; though the iPhone 8 may be launched in September, it will not be ready for shipment until October 2017. This even leads to a possibility of the flagship phone getting launched directly in October.

This minor delay in its launch as compared to the existing trend of a September release can be due to initial manufacturing setbacks. Moreover, the increased number of reports throughout last year has even hinted at supply constraints and other vital issues. Thus, it would not be a shock if you see the new smartphone arriving a month later than that of its predecessors.

By breaking the norm of calling its devices with their common naming traditions, it is believed that Apple has decided to call its flagship smartphone as iPhone X. Not only this name makes some sense but even highlight the device’s exclusive status.

Latest Rumours about iPhone SE 2: Release Date and Upgrade of Storage

On 31st March 2016, the iPhone SE went on sale and since the launch of the iPhone 7, it has been the only iPhone which can be directly bought new from Apple. Here in this post, we will discuss all the latest rumours regarding the release date and the upgrade of the storage of the iPhone SE 2. Just read on to gather more info:

What is the release date of the iPhone SE 2?

We are expecting the iPhone SE 2 to be released in March 2018 in the UK.

With 16GB of storage, the iPhone SE costs £379, or with 64GB of storage, it costs £429. This phone is available in Rose Gold, Space Grey, and Silver colours. That is really cheap for an iPhone, but still quite expensive when you consider that an iPhone SE just costs $160 for making.

iPhone se 2

Many individuals have thought that Apple will declare the iPhone SE 2, the successor to the iPhone SE, nearly one year after its introduction in March 2017, as is the case with the updates of its flagship iPhone.

When Apple declared some new products with the inclusion of the particular edition of new iPad and red iPhone 7, there was no iPhone SE 2. Rather, the company updated the original iPhone SE with the upgrades of storage.

Presently, it is £479 for 128GB and £379 for 32GB a year on from its first launch.

By far, it appeared the iPhone SE would follow in the iPhone 5C’s footsteps as a promising one-off, with KGI Securities’ reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stating that no new iPhone SE will come in 2017.

In accordance with Kuo, this is because the introduction of a new iPhone SE will influence the sales of the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, which are down already. A report from Mac Otakara stating there would be an upgrade to the original smartphone turned out for being spot on.

Where it leaves the iPhone SE 2 is a difficult question. Apple might never introduce one but we are expecting for 2018 depending on the comments of Kuo.

Rumours on Apple iOS 11: UK Release Date and Features Explained

As long as we can remember, App has recently launched a new iOS version in September. Apple uses to do this every year. So this year we are again expecting that the company will follow the same routine and will offer us an impressive new technology, the Apple iOS 11.

UK release date:
We are expecting that the iOS 11 will be released in the month of September 2017. However, it will not be the ultimate version as iOS gets updated daily across the year.

New features of iOS 11:

Until June, we cannot be sure about the features of iOS 11. However, according to some rumours, here we can expect some features on our own wish list.Apple iOS 11• VR support:
According to the latest rumours, Apple will add VR support to its iOS 11. It may be just the latest iPhone which will have the support of VR.

• Dark mode:
A rumour has been heard since many days that Apple is going to launch a dark mode which will offer a dark background in its apps and across iOS. This must help eliminate brightness while utilising your phone in complete darkness.

• Customisable control centre:
It’s not a rumour, yet it’s actually our wish to see on iOS 11. We have used the control centre on Android and we wish to have it with better customisation capability on iOS as well.

• Better Siri:
Virtual assistants have been jumping each other since they seen, but Siri is due for an upgrade. It’s quite capable, yet not that much intelligent and is presently lagging behind Google’s Assistant.

Apple is working to make Siri better and sound more natural. So, we expect to see lots of apps for starting using it.

• Better and simple access to video settings:
It’s really annoying that there are no video recording settings in the camera app. All we want is an easy cycle via some modes in the camera app itself.

So, these are a few rumours regarding the new iOS 11. Are you excited for this launch? Let us know in comments.
