Seeing Al: Microsoft Launches iPhone App That Narrates the World for Blind People


iPhone is known for its dynamic features and extraordinary-stylish appearance. iPhone is the smartphone which is the choice of every smart user. The whole range of applications and options it provides makes it the best amongst the bests. This time iPhone has come up with the best thing in terms of its feature out of the box. ‘Seeing Al’ is the newly launched feature in iPhone.

Microsoft has delved a kind attitude towards those who are visibly challenged. Yes, you heard it right! Microsoft has come up with an application known as Seeing Al with this app now the one who have lost their sight can experience the world around them as this application will narrate everything to its visibly impaired holder. So, now even the one who have not been blessed with the power of eyesight can see the world through their iPhone.

This app is absolutely free and is available on the iPhone’s App Store. This app is capable of defining all sorts of expressions of one’s face, currency notes and it can also portray verbally all the physical scenes till the range of the all, and the range is enough to narrate to someone what is going on in his/her surrounding. This unbelievable app can also read books or any sort inscriptions. It also has the power to scan all sorts of bar codes and provide relevant information.

This was started as a research project by Microsoft, but Microsoft has created a revolution with this invention. There are lot more things to explore from this app. This app successfully acts as the eye for those who are sightless.

Other than narrating only the physical features it can also portray verbally the images present in other art forms. But, the only limitation of the app is that at present it is only available in countries like US, Canada, New Zealand, India, Hong Kong and Singapore, in other countries its application is still at stake.

This innovative project was first initiated by a Software Engineer Saqib Shaikh at Microsoft. He propagated this idea in March 2016.

Such an idea is the result of Shaikh being crippled at his eyesight since seven years of age. This thought seemed as a fiction to him, but eventually, he was able to develop this with the support of his entire team. This project was definitely not easy to bring into reality, but he managed it with utmost dedication in his heart to help those who are unable to cherish the beauty of this world by witnessing it, the difficulties which he faced because of his inability to see provoked him to develop such an application like Seeing Al.

Now, seeing will not be an obstacle for those who are crippled in this field. Microsoft has proved that technology can do wonders and now none will be left behind. Everyone will feel themselves to be equally privileged. Seeing Al will actually eliminate the problems faced by those who have lost their eye sight.

Apple iOS 10.3.3 Is Now Available: What Is Included In This Update?

iOS 10.3.3

IOS 10.3.3: Apple released fifth beta

Can we soon expect the general rollout of iOS 10.3.3? Apple has released the fifth beta for the next update of its operating system. The increased frequency of the test versions points to the upcoming release for all users - the fourth beta was released less than a week ago. Apple has released a new version of iOS 10 with iOS 10.3.3 after a short beta, which does not bring any new functions, but closes security gaps.

Apple has released iOS 10.3.3 for owners of iPhones and iPads. The update closes security gaps of the mobile operating system. This is a maintenance update without any new functions. A total of 46 vulnerabilities are closed with the update.

A small innovation includes iOS 10.3.3 but for the iPad Pro with 12.9- and 10.5-inch display: For both tablets the update is to include new background images. Parallel to the iOS beta, Apple has also released the fifth test version of macOS 10.12.6. Also the rollout of the new version of the Mac operating system should take place in the near future for all users.

These concern the contact app that attackers can use to execute malicious code. In the core audio section, it is possible to inject and execute code with a manipulation. This also applies to the EventKitUI and IOUSBFamily, and even kernel privileges can be achieved when attacking the latter. Fixes are also available in the Messages area, in the Web browser Safari with Webkit, as well as in the print functions of the browser. Even the phone app got a security update.

Apple released all the information in detailed release notes. The update to iOS 10.3.3 can be over-the-air. It is recommended to back up the iOS device. This is also suggested by the fact that Apple's fifth beta version of iOS 10.3.3 only available for developers and then as a public beta. Thus, soon all users of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch could benefit from the improvements. As the previous versions have shown, the focus is on updating to bug fixes and increasing performance; New features will not bring the update to the compatible devices.

Those who wants, can now download the final version of iOS 10.3.3 and install it on the iPhone and iPad. The betaphase was unusually long and six iterations large.

Apple has released the next beta generation of iOS 10, which is now complete, after the final versions of macOS Sierra 10.12.5, iOS 10.3.2, tvOS 10.2.1 and watchOS 3.2.2 have appeared. In the fall iOS 11 comes on the market, which is also already tested.

Maintenance updates and security enhancements instead of new features

The update, as in the previous generation, will only fix errors and increase security. New features are not included. Probably it is the last version of iOS 10.

The vulnerabilities found are partly critical, allowing attackers to run CodeResponsive websites with Dreamweaver and bootstrap on the affected device. The update should not be deferred but installed at the next opportunity via the iOS settings.

iPhone 7s: The Most Expensive Phone in the History of Apple



New rumors about the next Apple smartphone: In addition to the expected iPhone 8, there could also be an iPhone 7s and an iPhone 7s Plus - with subtle differences.

It is the usual game in the weeks and months before the release of the latest iPhone. Professional bloggers, self-styled experts, alleged insiders and also serious media speculate how the new Apple smartphone will be, as it is said, and what features are expected.

So it's 2017 again. At the heart of the speculation is the generally expected iPhone 8 - if that is the right name. Because so far, Apple only increases the model number by a number every two years. So 2017 would actually be an iPhone 7s in the line.

But maybe there are even both? According to the specialist, referring to the Wallstreet Journal, Apple wants to bring out two other models, which are traded as "iPhone 7s" and "iPhone 7s Plus" in addition to its new flagship. Three at a time could be so in September - if that is the correct release date.

A difference between the model series could then be the display. While the iPhone 7s is based on a flexible OLED display

iPhone 7s

How does the iPhone 7s look - and what features does it bring with it? 

In fact, many indications for the new iPhone point to a new design. Apple's proprietary patents suggest, for example, that the display will be completely borderless. This means not only a larger display with the same or nearly the same overall size of the device but also that the home button could completely disappear.
The entire screen could then become a fingerprint sensor.

The release could also be possible - even speculations - but also by facial recognition. A 3D laser scanner could come into play.

According to the WSJ report, the Lightning adapter could also have some changes. The Apple may possibly replace with a USB-C connector - as it has since 2015 with Macs. This could simplify the connection of additional devices to the iPhone - but would also have the consequence that Lightning would be replaced again after five years.

Better battery in the iPhone? 

The next iPhone could get along without a charging cable. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities claims this - and with his forecasts in the past has often been correct. For the wireless, Apple would have to rework the design of the inner life of the iPhone - but this should be without great difficulty. Perhaps then also a slightly larger and thus more powerful battery on board the new iPhone would be. That Apple disciples much more frequently than other mobile phone owners are looking for a socket, is well-known.

As it is well known, in the case of (branded) products in the tech sector, the brand, as well as the patents and development costs of the manufacturer, are to a considerable degree. The pure material costs are pushed by the Far Eastern mass production. A recent evaluation shows how expensive the iPhone 7 is in production.

The analysis of the market research company IHS have looked at how expensive the new iPhone models are purely on their components and the production is reduced. The result: The iPhone 7 costs in manufacturing 219.80 dollars per unit. The iPhone 7 Plus is five dollars more expensive.

The iPhone 7 Plus is, therefore, more expensive in production than the iPhone 6s Plus. The most expensive single item is the touchscreen, which basically consists of two components: the panel and the touch layer. This information applies to the version with 32 GB of memory. The overall cost of iPhone 7s is estimated to be around $1,400

Apple Patents Discreet 911 Calling Technology for iPhone

Patent for Touch ID: iPhone is to Get Panic Mode


Apple was again awarded a whole batch of patents this week, including the description of an iPhone charging station with Siri integration and the possibility to discreet emergency calls. The latter describes the company under the title "Biometric Initiated Communication" as a series of finger movements within a certain period of time. The patent submission should help iPhone owners in danger situations uncomplicated, but effective. The principle is so simple that it could soon be implemented.

In emergencies, an attacker could be in the best case to make an emergency call without warning, by tapping, for example, when unlocking the iPhone in a special way with a finger on the display. The touch ID in the home button of iPhones and iPads could get another meaningful function in the near future. The US Patent Office has published an Apple application describing how the fingerprint sensor can be used as a panic button. The principle is simple: Owners of the devices define a finger whose imprint triggers specific functions in emergency situations. "Apple Patent" has described the various possibilities.

The mentioned Siri dock describes Apple as a screen-equipped charging station for the iPhone. The application from the year 2013 for the now granted patent explicitly also describes the option to charge the iPhone wirelessly. In the event that the next iPhone is actually based on wireless charging technology, Apple would have to spend the autumn announced HomePod only a suitable charge module to exploit the patent protected possibilities.

If an iPhone or iPad is unlocked in the panic mode, personal data such as contacts, e-mails, messages or photos are not available. The device could then look as if it had been reset to the factory settings and behaved accordingly. It is also possible that the surface is not visible at all, that the panic mode was activated. IPhones or iPads could also inadvertently take photos and videos and secretly upload to an Apple server. Alternatively, the recordings could be stored on the device and later retrieved by remote access along with the location data.

If the owner is threatened, a panic mode would also allow him to start sound recordings, which are sent directly to an emergency service. He could, for example, describe a place or name the offender, if he knows it.

An iPhone can only serve as a fast emergency call transmitter in the event of an accident or a certain imprint activates a private mode in which a device is only usable to a limited extent and no access to personal data is possible. To deactivate a panic mode, the corresponding finger can be placed on the home button, the patent application also provides for wipes.

The latter, however, is more likely to be fiction, as usual, when looking at patent applications it must be taken into account that in most cases it is important to keep all doors open. Only a part of the described techniques can be used in the end.

How to Add New Fonts to Your Mac

Fonts
Install fonts for Mac OS

You can use different fonts to make a text optic, to organize it, and to make it better (or worse) readable. For example, A headline to the eye-catcher.

On Mac OS, there are various ways to install a font. Here are three, which cover all eventualities:

  1. Install by double-clicking
    A double-click on the font file in the Finder opens the "collection" program, which displays the font. Click "Install". The font file is automatically installed in the "Library" folder in your user directory of Mac. So you only have access to this font and only you can use it. If you want to share the font with other users on your computer, follow option 2 or 3. 
  2. Install with the help of the collection
    Start the "Literary Collection" program. You can report this to Spotlight; CMD + Empty button and then "Literary collection" or from the program folder by double-clicking do. The font can now be installed by drag'n'drop to the respective "collection" in the right column. Fonts in the "Computer" collection are available to all users. You can only use fonts in the "user" collection. 
  3. Install by copying
    Mac OS has various font directories. Where you install a font, who determines who has access to it and who can use it.
Copy your desired font file to one of the directories listed below.

Changes to font directories are immediately effective. Sometimes, however, it is necessary to restart the program in which the font is to be used.

Font types

Similar to the fact that the operating systems are continually developed for computers, there are of course also changes and improvements in the font formats. The most important font types you should know are listed below.

OpenType fonts

OpenType is a standard developed by Microsoft and Adobe for fonts and the most recent font format. OpenType is an extension of the TrueType format, which means that both formats are very similar. Depending on how the data is stored for the fonts, OpenType fonts are subdivided into TrueType (.ttf) or PostScript-flavored (.otf) OpenType fonts. These can be embedded in the TrueType format as square splines or in the PostScript CFF format as cubic splines.

TrueType fonts (.ttf, .ttc)

TrueType is a standard for fonts developed by Apple ("real font" or "real letter"). It was developed several years after the PostScript format and is integrated into the operating systems Windows and Mac OS. In general, TrueType fonts can be said to be worse than PostScript fonts, because the format does not theoretically allow a perfect circle.

PostScript fonts (.ps)

PostScript uses its own font formats, the glyphs of which are described with PostScript, which differs in particular from the current TrueType format.

PostScript fonts are better in comparison to TrueType fonts, more accurate, rounder and softer. If you want to know more about font-types, typography.info is recommended.

For Windows:

Microsoft Office already offers a very large selection of fonts. Maybe the right one is just not there yet. Here's how to try new fonts:

Surf a website that offers fonts for download. Locate and download a font (the location is not relevant yet). The files are usually compressed using WinRar. Open the RAR file and drag and drop the files to the desktop or folder.

Open the folder "Fonts". You can find it under "C: \ Windows \ Fonts"

Copy the unpacked font files into them by simply dragging them with the mouse and dragging them to the folder.

For fonts search, check for more options and tick the box "Fonts with accents only". If the possibility exists that you use the new font also for commercial purposes, do not forget the donation to the authors. In case of doubt, you can also check "Public Domain" or "100% free" before the Fonts search, then you are on safe ground with regard to the rights of use.

If fonts are zipped (file ending ZIP), the files can be easily unpacked by right-click. If, on the other hand, you are dealing with RAR files, you need an additional tool. 7-zip, a sleek but powerful open-source program for unpacking a wide range of formats.

Apple Pencil 2 Latest Rumours: Release Date and New Features

Apple Pencil – Best Tablet Stylus


The stylus of Apple for the iPad Pro known as the Apple Pencil is presently perhaps the best tablet stylus in the world. Many are keen on knowing what the design team of Sir Jony Ive tends to come up with, when the Apple Pencil 2 will eventually be unveiled.

The present Apple Pencil can be purchased on Apple’s Store for £99. Rumours have been circulating regarding the new Apple Pencil that the same would be released during the WWDC 2017 in June though it had been decided by Apple to bring the software updates to the stylus and would be made available to the public somewhere in September when iOS 11 would be released.

 However, they are available in beta for the developers presently and a public beta programme shortly. The new features comprise of Instant Markup that will enable the user to utilise your Apple Pencil to rapidly draw or make notes on PDFS, screenshots and much more. One could just pick the Pencil and touch the same to the screen. Moreover, one could also tap your Apple Pencil to the Lock Screen of the iPad Pro to start taking notes within the Notes app, immediately.

Document Scanner in Notes


Inline Drawing enables the user to draw or write in Notes while mechanically touching any text out of the way, above or below the drawing and this is said to work in Mail app also. Lastly, the new Document Scanner in Notes enables the user to scan the document and instantly sign or fill it with the help of the Apple Pencil.

Apple had also announced the new iPads during WWDC 2017 comprising of a new 10.5in model and details regarding the iPad is made available in their best iPad buying guide. In September 2015, the first Apple Pencil had been revealed together with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro in order that the apparent time to expect an update would be in autumn 2016.

However no updates came forth to the Apple Pencil. Since the software updates have been publicised, there is a possibility that we will not see an Apple Pencil 2 this year at all or most probably early 2018 together with the annual iPad refresh. There is some impetus which has been building around the rumour that the next Apple Pencil together with the next iPad Pro would be capable of attaching to each other utilising magnets.

Extending Range of Application


It is evident that this would be quite suitable than the present state of affairs, wherein the Pencil would roll off and be lost on the floor. To support this theory, the latest report from Letemsvetemapplem has cited `information directly from suppliers in China’ tends to claim that `in accordance with the patent which Apple had attained last year in September, the user would be in a position to attach a pencil to iPad with the magnet like the original Apple iPad Smart Case covers the display.

A site which is in Czech claims that the Apple Pencil 2 would be having a small clip similar to a traditional pen which means that one can clip the Pencil to your pocket though it seems probably like a simple solution to the problem of the impeccably round pencil rolling across desks and not remain in a particular place. Presently, it is very much unclear though some suggest that Apple is aiming on extending the range of application with optimised support from the Apple Pencil.

Back End of Apple Pencil – An Eraser


A Chinese-language site, Wei Feng, had already quoted in the release date segment that `the so-called Apple Pencil 2 will have what kind of characteristics? As per the supply chain, the answer was `compatible with a large number of applications’.

An Apple Patent 9,329,703 filed in 2011 and published on 3 May 2016 tends to describe an `intelligent stylus’ where the individual nib has its own sensor that seems to pair with a separate sensor in the body of the stylus. The patent’s detailed description reads ` The stylus 110 can include multiple sensors to provide information regarding its condition, where the sensors can be selectively used alone or in various combinations.

 The ability to provide information beyond simply touch input information, particularly information about the stylus’s condition that the stylus determines itself, gives this stylus,intelligence absent from a traditional stylus’.Referring to patent 9,329,703, Apple has mentioned the possibility of turning the back end of the Apple Pencil into an eraser.

Another patent of Apple initially filed in Q4 2014 though published in February 2017, has revealed plans for an Apple pencil with various touch and force sensors along the body of the device. The sensors could be utilised for touch gestures with the device and also when the Pencils is being rotated. Moreover it could also detect how the amount of pressure being utilised in controlling the scrolling or zooming or using pinching as a means of picking up and move on-screen objects.

Tim Cook Confirms Apple's Focus on Self Driving Car

Self driving car: news, rumors, facts and information on iCar


Under the cover "Project Titan", Apple is researching an electric and self driving car. All information, rumors and pictures can be found here at Macmyth.com

Apple's plans for self-propelled cars are now official - even if it remains unclear how far the iPhone Group wants to push into the business with the mobility of the future. Apple was given permission to test self driving car on public roads in California. The approval, made public on 14 April 2017 by the US traffic authority, is the clearest indication of the ambitions of the smartphone and computer manufacturer in the competitive future market for autonomous driving. Apple is the 30th company to which one has issued in the most populous US state such a license.

Strong competition


Although Apple's commitment to robotic self driving car has long been considered as an open secret, it has never been publicly confirmed by the Group itself. The clearest hint so far has been a letter to the US traffic authority NHTSA, in order to contribute to the guidelines for self driving car. Apart from that, it merely meant that mobility is an interesting future market.

Apple first started the development of its own electric vehicles up to first prototypes a few years ago, but the project then focused on robotic self driving car software. According to data from the traffic authority, the approval has now been issued for three converted Lexus SUVs. GoogleSEO for beginners also started with modified series cars before the Internet company sent its electric two-seater on its own.

Rivals such as Google's parent company Alphabet with its subsidiary Waymo, as well as major players from the automotive sector, such as Volkswagen, Daimler's Mercedes-Benz, Bosch, Ford, General Motors and Tesla, have long been permitted to test robotic cars in California. It was only recently that the transport authority was not able to test its self driving car without such permission, but the traffic authorities did not play along.

Leaks and rumours surrounding the new 10th-anniversary iPhone 8

Recently photos and information have leaked that appears to show that Apple is engaging in major overhauls involving their most famous product the Apple iPhone. Leaks appear to indicate that after spending years reiterating on the original iPhone design the iPhone 8 is going to be radically different from the phones that have come before.

The leaks come from a highly credible source named Steve Hemmerstoffer (Whose twitter username is @OnLeaks) He has said that these leaks are “sourced directly from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone”. Hemmerstoffer has worked with Tiger Mobile in the past and has proven to be a very credible source in the past. The leaked images show a very different style of phone. The iPhone 8's measurements will be, according to the leaks, 143.5 x 71 x 7.5 mm. These measurements would make the iPhone 8 appear very short for what is traditionally sold. Another feature is the protruding dual camera. This will perhaps make the phone slightly more difficult to use on flat surfaces as the uneven back will mean the phone will have trouble resting on flat surfaces. However, the massive 5.8-inch high-resolution display is a huge boon for the phone. There also seems to be space for the ios 11 function area. The edges also appear to be curved on both sides which are also a new design. Another feature is the lack of rear fingerprint scanner and physical home button. There does not appear to be any increase in battery size.

The other leak is sourced from a case maker named Olixar. Olixars leaks match up almost perfectly to Hemmerstoffer’s leaks. However, the size is slightly different with Olixar saying that the iPhone 8 will be 145 x 73 x 9mm. This leaker has previously correctly leaked the iPhone 7, Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8. Olixar is a retail partner with Mobile Fun and they have released videos showing off the official iPhone 8 case and screen projectors. This video even compares the iPhone 8 to the iPhone 7.

Other then these leaks there have been various rumours floating around about the iPhone 8. For example, there has been rumours that Apple is planning on using glass as its main material in the iPhone 8. This would greatly help them in their competition with Samsung as this would mean that Apple has discovered a way to put the handset's fingerprint beneath into the screen.

Another rumour has it that Apple is planning to deliver a handset with a wireless charging option. This is an option Samsung already provides. Apple had (allegedly) considered wireless charging for the iPhone 7 but in the end, it was not available upon release.

One interesting rumour is that the iPhone 8 will have a flexible plastic OLED display rather than an LCD display. This would mean the device would consume less power and offer a better display and possibly higher contrast ratios and more realistic colour. The iPhone 8 is also expected to be waterproof but may even improve upon previous iterations in its water resistance.

Internally the iPhone 8 is expected to have a 10-nanometer A11 chip this would mean that the iPhone 8 will be far faster and more battery efficient than previous models. Iris, Facial and gesture recognition are also rumoured to be included in the new Apple iPhone. 3d sensing capabilities have also been rumoured. However, it is important to note that none of these features have been confirmed by Apple or the leakers.

This new phone is a massive step forward for Apple. They are radically changing their traditional designs which could continue to their iPad and other products . This is most likely in an attempt to stay competitive in an increased competition driven market. The iPhone 8 will be facing up against the hotly anticipated Pixel 2 and it will be quite the clash of the titans to see who comes out on top in an ever increasingly saturated market. There is currently no release date announced for the Iphone 8 but it is expected to be officially announced very soon with a release date to follow shortly.

Apple Leak 'Confirms' iPhone 8 is Massive

Apple iPhone 8: Display with mega resolution


This year it has Apple has to celebrate the release of iPhone 8! This cries formally after a glorious keynote with features that the world has not yet seen. Especially Samsung has done with the Galaxy S8. As always, Apple remains silent, of course. Luckily there are the rumors and talkative suppliers: These sources provide daily information on the iPhone 8. When it comes? For mid-September, many Apple employees have received a holiday lock - this could be a hint.

And apropos Samsung Galaxy S8: A first comparison with Samsung's super smartphone is already there. The hitherto most pertinent reports: Foxconn employees have talked on reddit times really from the sewing box, a supplier has confirmed a wireless shop and first sharp pictures of the new iPhones have dived. Macmyth.com bursts through the rumors and collects all news about the hottest smartphone of the year - the Apple iPhone 8.

All rumors about the iPhone 8:


June 23, 2017: Gigantic Resolution?

Forbes reports that the display of the iPhone 8 is not only huge but also extremely high resolution. According to the report, the upcoming Apple smartphone will offer 2800x1342 pixels. For comparison, the iPhone 7 Plus brings it to 1920x1080 pixels.

Behind such a resolution, however, is actually a plan stuck - because only for the display of existing apps the display would be completely overqualified. A new VR or AR function is therefore possible in combination with VR glasses - because at low resolutions one sees in this situation every pixel. If the rumors, the iPhone 8 could turn out to be a real VR-cracker


June 19, 2017: Protective glass confirms design



It seems safe: The iPhone 8 has (almost) no edge around the display. This is confirmed not only by all rumors almost in unison, but also manufacturers of accessories jump on the train. The British dealer MobileFun has offered a protective glass for the iPhone 8 for a few days. Although the device is not yet on the market, you are obviously sure that the thick edge only a small area for cameras and speakers remains. If we assume that the dealer does not produce the product for the ton, then the display of the iPhone 8 is really a real eye-catcher.

iPhone 8: Design


For three years, Cupertino has been content with the iPhone-6 design and only made tiny changes during this time. No wonder that there are now much more modern devices in the Android camp. Apple would, in any case, reduce the border - both at the sides as well as above and below. Because even if the iPhone 7 looks like a modern smartphone: the front shows too little display.

In addition to this, Twitter user KK Sneak Leaks uploaded pictures of the "finished" iPhone 8 and showed that the display shows the entire front face, the home button virtually disappears behind glass and distracts nothing from the screen. A similar theory is behind the dummy of Benjamin Geskin, which according to own data shows an (empty) model of Foxconn.

There is also no touch-ID sensor on the back and the display covers the entire front. The latest images are currently available at reddit and Geskin, both of which match the rumors so far: more front-panel display and a clean back. And the touch-ID sensor? This could actually wander in the power button if one looks at this patent.

iPhone 8: Hardware


As far as the hardware is concerned, the rumored kitchen simmers slowly. It is almost certain that Apple is again switching the processor and for the iPhone 8 with the Apple A11. This should be a 10-nanometer-FinFET-CPU, which uses less electricity due to its new architecture and works more efficiently. In the battle for minutes, the A11 would thus be an important building block - even if the batteries are reported to grow significantly.

With a new Logic Board, the iPhone-7-Plus battery should fit into the smaller case and the 5.5-inch model will provide even more power. Together with an OLED screen, a two-day running time seems to be within reach. To round off this idea, other rumors and the statement of an insider attest to the iPhone 8 finally also cable chargers. Like the Apple Watch, the rechargeable battery is also inductive. The memory of the iPhone 8 is still a maximum of 256 gigabytes.

Still a good news: Presumably, the outdated 32 gigabytes versions from the iPhone 8 are a thing of the past and the entry starts at 64 gigabytes. In terms of memory, it is probably at 3 gigabytes, however, iOS in everyday life has not yet shown by its sluggish side. Another exciting rumor: Forbes reported that the display resolution is huge 2800x1342 pixels - that would be more than twice as sharp, as is currently the case with the iPhone 7 Plus.

iPhone 8: Cameras


Main attention of a smartphone is generally the snaps. In the iPhone 7, Apple already installed the sometimes best mobile cameras on the market, the iPhone 8 is probably already something again. According to rumors, the cameras offer an optical image stabilization and may even allow 3D effects in photos. There should also be new developments in the arrangement of the lenses, which are in the iPhone 8 one under the other instead of next to each other - the at least a user claims on Twitter, which wants to upload real pictures. Other rumors confirm this regularly.

Has Apple for the Friends of Selfies on the iPhone 8 an ace in the sleeve - is it really a special feature? A new system consisting of three modules supports 3D capabilities that allow, for example, recordings for augmented or virtual reality (AR / VR) or iris unlocking. There are hardly any rumors about the megapixel number of both cameras; Fortunately, this idle discussion has now moved into the background.
Apple iPhone X: design study in retro style

iPhone 8 Connections: Does USB-C?


The "Wall Street Journal" wants to know from a well-informed source that Apple is thinking about a farewell to Lightning. Therefore, instead of a USB-C socket. Whether the change already on the iPhone 8 comes to bear, is questionable.

Only recently, the AirPods were released and put on Lightning as a charging port. Therefore it is probably - if at all - only at the iPhone 9 or iPhone 10 so far. Logically, the change would be nevertheless, because in particular users of several Apple devices, such as a MacBook Pro and an iPhone, do not currently have the possibility to use the included Lightning headphones also on the Mac - a mistake in the otherwise interlocking product range, not from Duration. On the other hand, internal sources say that it remains with Lightning.

iPhone 8 & 7S: How many iPhones will it be?


The fact that the iPhone 8 may appear as a very special smartphone, insiders and experts agree. Only under what designation Apple introduces the particularly expensive and noble mobile phone, the spirits separate. In addition to the iPhone 8, the names "Anniversary Edition" and "iPhone X" - both are references to the 10th anniversary of the brand. A Japanese website brings another option into play:

One wants to have found out that Apple the mobile phone under the label "iPhone Edition" issues. This is not a fake, but the most expensive version of the Apple Watch came with this name. Does Apple really release three smartphones, most of which customers do not want to have two? What would an iPhone 7S if there were the successor at the same time? Does this point remain unclear until the day of the keynote?

iPhone 8: Release


And when the new models come - when is it time? September, you should think. But other rumors start from two events this year. So the iPhone Edition is not to appear with the other two iPhone-7S models in the autumn, but by solo appearance at the end of the year, possibly in November. The reason for this may be that the development of the smartphone is not completed.

According to the report, Apple is still experimenting with several prototypes to find out which is best suited for mass production. These should include devices with LCD and AMOLED display as well as variants with aluminum, glass and ceramic housing.

BusinessInsider reports that the financial experts published a report starting from a 2018 release in early May. Based on the details of ValueWalk, the shift is as follows: Apple plans for the iPhone 8 numerous new functions and a fresh design. The parts for the assembly are however not available in sufficient number so that Apple is not able to build by the end of the year enough iPhones of the next generation. Instead, it gives the iPhone 7S, so more time to work on the iPhone 8. But can Apple really miss the anniversary? Probably would be an announcement in September despite all circumstances, but very long delivery times. So, everything is open.

iPhone 8: Price


That does not sound good at all. The Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski reports that the iPhone 8 could become the most expensive smartphone of the company's history. Keep it right, then the iPhone appears only with 128 GB or 256 GB, so that all entry-level variants were dropped. The prices of the devices count with 999 US dollar and 1.099 US dollar - that would be 25 percent surcharge! In the USA, the price for the entry-level model would, therefore, be the first time in the four-digit range. Currently, the iPhone 7 with 128 GB of memory there costs 749 US dollars. Applying the percentage price increases of the US dollar prices would be on the price tag of the iPhone 8 with 128 GB of memory an amount of approximately 1,100 euros.
