Apple Patents Way to Charge iPhone Over Wi-Fi

Apple Goes Ahead and Patents the Way to Charge the iPhone over Wi-Fi


Apple had something extraordinary and it has become synonymous with this tech firm as well. For quite some time it was reported that Apple is experimenting with the different of chagrining its iPhone and iPad devices wirelessly. Quite recently it has filed a patent which helps these devices to charge at a good pace with contact through using the signals emitted from the Wi-Fi devices in the form of radio frequencies. This also brings our focus to the wireless charging on a more grand level as soon the Apple users will be able to bid adieu to the physical cable for good.

One of the interesting things to note about this patent is that Apple has found a way of re-powering its range of devices not just using the Wi-Fi but also the mobile and millimeter wave signals. Apple patent has clearly proposed the way of directing the electromagnetic frequencies tight towards the device like a beam of energy. 

A little history of wireless charging technology

It would come as a surprise that this technology was invented way back in 1891 by Nikola Tesla. It makes use of an electromagnetic field in order to transfer the energy between the two objects. The conventional wireless charging is supported on a variety of mobile phones by keeping the device on a charging pad or mat. Some of the popular flagship device to support this technology includes LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S7, Google Nexus 6, Microsoft Lumia 1520 and Blackberry Priv Z30. This technology has helped in doing away with cumbersome phone specific chargers to a very limited extent.

Insights from the patent filing

The patent filed by the Apple at the moment only covers the theory behind its method but doesn’t reveal the actual way of doing it. For quite some time rumors were rife that Apple will be introducing the wireless charging on its iPhone series which would mark first time in ten years that Apple has given respite to the users from the lightning cables.

It is quite unclear how exactly Apple will be bringing this technology on its range of devices. It is worth noting that Apple won’t be bringing the short range inductive charging system which is found on the Apple Watch as well as on Samsung Galaxy S8 devices.

This charging technology is quite old and a number of OEMs has been playing with it for few years but they had not found any long range system or capability. Apple has decided to stay away from this technology as it was waiting to come up with a long range system which offers a better option to the users. Just few months Apple has patented the inductive charging station in concept specifically designed for the iPhone.

Way back in 2010 Apple filed a patent to recharge the iMac wirelessly from the distance of 1 metre. But we still fail to see the resurgence of this technology on Apple device ecosystem and this new patent has helped in giving hope to the Apple fans once again.

iPhone Users Warned About Potentially Dangerous "Siri 108" Prank

Siri 108

Caution – Viral Social Media Campaign 


The police department all across the United States are annoyed over a viral social media campaign which has encouraged iPhone users in saying the number 108 to Siri as a prank, which has gone viral. The police have stated that the scam has been spreading all over Facebook as well as Twitter and when iPhone users tend to test the Siri command `just for fun’, they are in reality tying up phones lines at the emergency call centres.

 If you dial 108 you will hear `calling emergency services in five seconds and within a span of five seconds, you will be transferred to 911. Sergeant Adrian Page with the Lonoke Police Department in Arkansas in a Facebook post which had gone viral with over 1,100 shares, had informed users not to fall for it, since it seems to tie up emergency lines. It has been designed specially as a panic code. The number 108 is in fact the emergency services number in India.

 As reported by sources, Apple desired to make it simple for people to contact emergency services from any location in the world and so telling Siri any emergency number of a country would get the user connected to the service for any location. You could ask Siri to call 911 if one is visiting the U.K. and it would dial 999 for local help.

Phone System Preventing Emergency Calls


The Annapolis Police Department in Maryland had mentioned that this prank has been spreading among Annapolis teens and has the possibility to tie up dangerously the 911 phone system preventing emergency calls from being instantly answered.

They have cautioned users not to fall for this trick. According to the National Emergency Number Association , around 240 million calls are said to be made to 911 each year in the U.S. most of which are made from wireless devices and placing prank call to 911 is said to be an offence.

The Marshall Police Department in Wisconsin had warned recently that this prank is problematic since it tends to use resources which are important for others attempting to receive help in case of genuine emergency conditions.

 The police has informed that essentially, telling Siri to call 108 is not a jest and the same should not be done unless in genuine emergency cases. The police agencies all over the U.S. have been cautioning iPhone users of a probable dangerous viral social media prank.

Users Call Emergency Services From Any Location

Pranksters are attempting to trick users into saying `Hey Siri, 108, prompting the digital assistant to contact emergency services wherein the number in India is equivalent of 911. Siri tends to begin a five second countdown on hearing `108’ enabling the users with the opportunity to terminate the call before it goes through.

 But pranksters who seem to share the trick tell users to `close their eyes and wait for 5 seconds before looking at their phone. Though 108 is said to be the emergency service number in India, Apple has made it that way in order that users can call emergency services from any location they may tend to be in the world, according to CNET.

 Users sharing the trick on social media may consider it as harmless but a similar incident had resulted in the death of a six month old boy wherein the caregiver had called 911 thrice on T-Mobile phone and was kept on hold each time she had called and resulted in the death of the infant.

How to Keep iPhone Autocorrect in Check

Autocorrect
If you write a lot with the virtual iPhone keyboard, you will likely get used to the auto-correction, but you can deactivate it if necessary. If the auto correct is deactivated, it is recommended to leave the normal correction activated at least. This still indicates errors but does not automatically repair them. The relevant options can be found in the General and Keyboard settings. Regardless of whether Auto Correct is activated or deactivated, errors sometimes occur when typing quickly. So far you have probably deleted the erroneous word to the point where the error happened and rewritten it from there on. It does not have to be! Here you can learn how to correct your words faster.

Actually, we would just like to tell a friend or a friend that we can still have a coffee after the meal. However, we are typing "sitll" instead of "still".

Instead of deleting the wrong word and re-writing it, just press the backspace key on the virtual keyboard of your iPhone. If the blue bar is at the end of the wrong word, a correction suggestion should appear which you select by tapping. Of course this does not work with every word. If necessary, press the Backspace key a couple of times until you reach the end of the wrong word.

If you have selected the correction, the incorrect word is replaced by the correct one. The correction function becomes annoying when you write with friends and use a dialect or dialect phrases. The iPhone does not recognize the various dialects and therefore makes relatively nonsensical suggestions for improvement or directly makes improvements in the case of auto-correct. We'll show you how to disable this feature easily. 

Disable iPhone Auto Correction

If you want to disable the auto correct on the iPhone, go to the settings and select the General item. Scrolls a little down and taps on keyboard. There you will find the menu point Auto Correct, which you can activate and deactivate with a fingertip.

If you have problems with automatically corrected dialect or abbreviations, you probably work with auto-correction. You should disable it in this case. Apple has put the Auto Correct function so deep into the system settings. After all, iOS devices are selling around the world and one can assume that people with the most diverse dialects write texts on their iPhones. However, there is still no way to switch the function on and off quickly.

What you should consider when writing the text with the iPhone

The relatively small keys on the screen keyboard and some pre-set automatisms can be terribly annoying when writing to the otherwise exceptionally user-friendly iPhone:

When typing, keep in mind the upper / lowercase key. At the beginning of the block and after a block end character, the capitalization is activated automatically, recognizable by the white arrow symbol. Unfortunately, this really meaningful automatism is in some cases inappropriate, for example if you have a shortcut like "etc." insert.

Even more annoying are unwanted suggestions, because if you do not tap the cross symbol on the top right, your text will quickly get mixed up.

Especially if you want to go fast, you can quickly get to wrong keys - if a wrong word suggestion is inadvertently inserted or the capitalization unintentionally activated, the chaos is perfect.

This Tiny iOS Change Will Make Your iPhone Even Zippier

iOS
After a long wait Apple has finally rolled the update for the iOS 10.3 which is expected which will started hitting the devices from Monday. Those who got the chance to get the latest update early on their devices are claiming that their device is surprisingly faster than earlier. iPhone is running with a new vigour and performance is simply way better than it was being produced before the update.

But this isn’t the surprisingly thing which we would love to share with the iPhone users. It is widely known that the new update tends to improvise on the performance of the OS which ultimately helps in getting better output from the existing hardware. But this update has shown a new insight into how the iPhone can be made run much better even after the update.

The key hidden feature

The latest update brings a relatively new kind of fancy file system which plays a judgement role in freeing up the storage space on the OS. But this isn’t the only major improvement made in the iOS by the developers at the Apple. One of the Apple engineer going by the name of Renaud Lienhart has revealed on the Twitter one of the undocumented tweak implement in the OPS. This particular tweak has helped in improving the performance of the iPhone to a whole new extent.

What this tweak is all about? 

The update iOS 10.3 brings a wide range of snappier animation for the OS which allows it to perform exceptionally well. All the animation present on iOS was tweaked as well as shortened to a great extent by the team of the Apple engineers.

The animation which has been the talking point in the whole case of performance boosting relates to almost every aspect of the operating system experience. This animation can be seen in the opening, closing or switching between different apps. It would be absurd to think that simply optimizing the animation will help in getting better performance out a device. Rather this has helped in improving the responsiveness of the OS to the user’s commands or gestures which ultimately gives a feeling of improved performance on the iPhone. This tiny change has made it easier to perform multitasking on the iPhone.

Why wait? Just Update to 10.3 & See the difference

If you are tired with the slow performance of your iPhone then waste no time and update your device to the latest 10.3 version. This will allow you to get the speed boost and it is very good thing to keep your device updated with the latest version of OS as it helps in safeguarding the devices from wide range of bugs and it brings a whole range of fixes. A major bug has been rooted from the iOS with this update which is called Safari ransom bug. In short 10.3 update not just speeds up your iPhone but it also helps in keeping device secure against the bugs.

Though this move is bit awkward and it will take considerable before one gets accustomed to it. Apple has worked all the year to bring a credible solution for this as per the rumors where fingerprint scanning functionality will be embedded right beneath the touch screen.

Curve design to debut on iPhone

It might appear that Apple is simply ripping off all the important design elements of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in its upcoming iPhone 8. But it is other way around. Reports have already in the media for past six detailing most of the advancement and dramatic design which is expected to be implemented on the upcoming device. Samsung is just reaping the benefit of coming in the market first which such a kind of device.

Apple has worked in close association with a number of suppliers to come with an advanced curved display which works in sync with its homegrown technologies. iPhone 8 will certainly embrace the curved display trend which was pioneered by the Samsung but it will be completely optimized for the iOS platform to lend a completely new persona.

iPhone set to feature a new Touch ID sensor

Apple will be bringing a different style of TouchID sensor for the iPhone 8. Earlier it has been widely reported that Apple is planning to do away with the iconic physical home button with the use of ‘discrete ultrasonic transducers’. This will allow Apple to add some interesting gestures support and lot of magical feature right into the screen which can become the talk of the planet for the rest of the year.

What to Consider Before Buying Cheaper iPad and Red iPhone

Red iPhone
We know that it was in 2010, when Apple launched the first iPad model in this world. Till now, this company has promoted lots of models, starting from iPad Air version to Mini.

Apple has made an announcement about its launch of two new products, which have something special that may instantly attract the users. Perhaps, many of you have not planned to buy iPad because it is too much pricy. However, the most exciting news for you is that a new iPad model has been released at a lower rate. Another product, which may draw the attention of gadget lovers, is the red colored iPhone. Thus, if you have decided to purchase some exclusive products of Apple, you may choose these two latest models.

Cheaper model of iPad- What you get with it-

Though the new iPad is cheaper in price, its size (9.7 in.) gives it a very stylish look. The present price rate for this product is $469, and you may avail it in three shades- grey, gold and silver. If you look for an alternative of iPad Air 2, then this cheaper model is the best option. However, it is almost twenty percent thicker, in compared to the previous models, though its weight is about 469g.

Philip Schiller, associated with the company, has stated that lots of users will prefer this screen size- 9.7-inch. This screen is best for movies, browsing the internet, making video calls with friends and also enjoying the snaps. As all these things are available at a lower cost, the customers may be happy with the new model. So, you may replace your old iPad to have an upgrade. Whether you are using the cheaper model at the home or office, the special features, like A9 chip and Retina Display make everything convenient for you. In addition to it, you may access millions of apps, which are intended only for this model.

However, you must not confuse 9.7-inch model with the Pro line version. Moreover, the storage section has also been improved in case of iPad mini as you can get 128 GB for storing data.

Red iPhone- Why Apple has made newer approach with RED-

Now, let us talk about the new RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. With aluminum structure and the matte red color, these models look quite superb. You may get 256GB storage space with this iPhone 7. These latest iPhones are accessible to all users in the USA and several other nations.

Red products always seem to appear excellent, and there is a reason for adding such red color to the iPhones. So, many users are excited to know why Apple has marketed the new version with a different color. The company has made collaboration with the campaign- Product Red in order to prevent AIDS all over the world. However, some say that it is rather crimson rather than red. Thus, buy any of the latest products, released by Apple, and get some exceptional features with them.

Why Apple's red iPhones are not 'Red' in China

Red_iPhone
Tech lovers, who are enthusiastic of using iPhone, perhaps always wait for the release of new handsets of Apple. So, when Apple has recently launched Red version of iPhone 7, everyone becomes excited to have an experience of using the stylish model. Apple has started a campaign with the name- Product Red, and it has comprised all its red colored accessories, including iPods and headphones. The company has planned to sell Red iphone 7 with its red color in order to back up RED- an AIDS or HIV charitable trust.

This campaign of Apple will surely increase awareness of people internationally and produce more funds because each of the deals is to be counted as donation to the stated organization. A specific part of every red colored gadget, sold in the market, will help in funding a group that is working hard for struggling against the serious disease, mainly in Africa. This affiliation has recently led to the contribution of one hundred thirty million dollar. CEO of Apple has said that Apple is now the major corporate supporter to their fund.

No relevance of charity RED in iPhone models for Chinese citizens-

The latest edition of Apple Red iPhone is intended to be made available in more than forty nations of this world. However, the most interesting fact is that the handset is not presented in China as red edition by promoting the charity. It is known to all that China has a high possibility to make large number of sales. But, still, the Red iPhone edition has not been promoted there. The perceptive online users have made out that the marketing strategy, used by Apple for the new version, in China and Taiwan is not same. If you look at Apple’s website, intended for Chinese citizens, you may see that iPhone 7 has no mentioning of the charity RED. Rather, it reveals some other information, such as, time and date for launching the model.

Possible reasons for which Apple has not promoted the campaign in China-

You should not think it to be a mistake of Apple. AIDS and HIV are one of the complicated issues in the country of China. Some agencies have also raised a warning about the threatening AIDS problem of China.

Though a significant amount of advancement has been seen among young generation, government strategies have not been able to prevent the increase of this grave syndrome among homosexual guys in the country. So, it has been guessed that Apple has considered AIDS to be a very sensitive subject to Chinese iPhone users.

There is another presumption behind of avoidance of Red branding in the nation of China. A media has claimed that the iPhone manufacturer has understated its relation with RED, after posting Dalai Lama’s image on a social networking site. China thinks this personality to be a separatist. Though there is no proof to confirm such reason, many Chinese people have criticized Apple’s campaign due to their step for wishing birth anniversary to Dalai Lama.

How to tether your iPad to your phone

hotspot

Connect iPad to iPhone – Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot

All iPhones tends to connect to Internet at any location where a 3G or 4G signal is available though most of the iPads require Wi-Fi to be online. Though some iPad seem to have 3G and 4G connection, they tend to cost more and are not the common device resulting in the iPhone users usually getting online in areas iPad users seem to get stuck offline.

There seems an option here for iPad owners and if an iPhone is in the vicinity, only Wi-Fi iPads could get online by utilising a technology known as tethering. You can connect an iPad to an iPhone or Android device with a few taps and turn it into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot.If the user is aware on selecting a Wi-Fi network on the iPad then he is capable of turning the iPhone into a hotspot due to Instant Hotspot feature which Apple has included with the release of iOS 8.

 However one needs to open the app’s `Setting’ on the iPad, select the Wi-Fi and pick the iPhone for the networks which are made available on the list. If the available network is not displayed on the iPhone, one should make sure that Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth are enabled and that the same iCloud account is utilised on both devices.

Set up Personal Hotspot on iPhone

For the first time, the user will have to set up Personal Hotspot on the iPhone by going to Settings > Cellular > Dry Up Personal Hotspot and then follow the prompts. To enable the hotspot feature on Android device, the procedure may differ owing to the customizations that are made by the producers.

The hotspot feature of the device can be set up on opening Settings and utilising the search bar in order to locate `hotspot’.On giving a name for the network together with a password, you can open the Settings app on the iPad and select the network by going to Wi-Fi. On completion, the hotspot on the Android device can be turned off and your iPad will tend to get disconnected automatically.

Thereafter one will only require enabling the features of the hotspot on the Android device and your iPad will remember the network and get automatically connected. It is a good idea in creating a unique network name together with a password for the purpose of keeping your data secured irrespective of the device one intends using as a hotspot.

Share Cellular Data Connection

In order to share the cellular data connection of your iPhone with a nearby iPad to get it online, ensure that the three needs are met following these steps:

  • On the iPhone tap Settings 
  • Tap Personal Hotspot 
  • Move the Personal Hotspot slider to on/green 
  • Keep Personal Hotspot screen open on the iPhone, you may require the Wi-Fi password which is listed there 

If the user desires to tether to the iPhone the following steps on the iPad needs to be undertaken –
  • Wi-Fi needs to be turned on if the same is not `on’ which can be done through Control Centre or the Settings app
  • Tap Settings 
  • Tap Wi-Fi 
  • View the network created by iPhone which will be the name of the iPhone, for instance, my Personal Hotspot is known as Bluebird’s iPhone. You could tap it 
  • Edit the Wi-Fi network password form the Personal Hotspot screen of the iPhone 
  • Enter the password of the Wi-Fi network from the Personal Hotspot screen of the iPhone

Apple Patent Reveals Docking Gadget to Turn iPhone and iPad Into Computer

Apple Patent
Day n day out we experience a change in our lives. The change in the technological world is inevitable and we are quite surprised by the way the change has occurred. Thanks to the great and top companies in the world which has shaped our lives in a great deal. Well, we are quite familiar with the best phone in the world and that is iPhone developed by Apple. Needless to say, that these phones have the best features and designs in the world. There has been a recent update in the Apple arena that the iPhones or iPads are soon going to work like a complete computer. To be more specific, they will function like the famous Mac book of Apple. Apple’s patent have decided to with this outstanding approach.

THE PLAN 

The US Patent and Trademark Office has published a statement saying that the iPhone would be turned into the MacBook-like shell and power it using the smartphone. This is called the electronic accessory device. Well, the plan is that the touch pad of the Mac book is the place where you can dock your iPhone. There were some images being released on this concept. The Mac book will have everything including the screen, GPU ports, and keyboard. Only the screen of the iPhone will act as a tracking pad. It will also drive the whole unit as well. Well, some speculations is that the screen of the iPhone is inside the laptop chassis.

THE ASSURANCE

The reports have been stated in the Apple Insider but there are still no confirmation from the Cupertino labs whether they are going with this idea of turning the dump laptop terminal into the smart with the help of an iPhone. Well, it is not clear that how the synchronisation would be done in between the smartphone and laptop. The patents are trying out to figure of how to charge both the iPhone and the laptop in one go. So, Apple may have to try our something different from the earlier companies which have tried doing this.

THE FUTURE

It is too early to come to a conclusion now as there have been no confirmed news on this. It is not a new concept but how they bridge the gap is the thing that the common mass are looking forward. It will be big step towards the portability as well as saving the energy. The report also states that the iPad may become the screen for other versions of laptops. People who travel heavily will get a relief as the laptops would be light as well as they won’t have to face the problems of charging. So, now people are in a confused state whether to go for the iPhone 8 later this year or just test their patience for this docking gadget. It is surely going to create a great landmark in the tech market if launched within a few months.

Smart Way to Use Hearing Aid with Your iPhone

iPhone
If you are looking forward to use hearing aid with your smartphone then stick to iPhone only as it offers best compatibility along with a set of features which can’t be found on other OS. Apple has done an incredible in the past to work extensively with the hearing aids manufacturers to develop next gen hearing aid and apps which can easily compatible with the iPhone. Simply checking out the page for “Use Made for iPhone hearing aid’ page right on the Apple’s website will showcase a rather lengthy list of models to choose from. Such a things isn’t possible for any other OEM or OS widely available in the market.

Apple offers more features

The best thing Apple is that it has a wide list of models which are approved by the Federal Communications Commission and meets its stringent compatibility requirements. Further Apple has also built a guide right into the iOS software related to its usage and other accessibility features. Apple site clearly mentions that the users should consult with their doctor or specialist before buying the hearing aid as well as understanding the technology and its benefits.

Hearing aids with ‘Made for iPhone’ label

A number of hearing aids had started flowing into the market with ‘Made for iPhone’ label. These labelled designs are specifically designed to work with the Apple iPhone from the model iPhone 4s and above. These hearing aids can even be used with a large number of iPad models as well as with the fifth generation of the iPod Touch and later variants. In short Apple has quietly brought a wide range of devices which comes with inbuilt support for the ‘Made for iPhone’ hearing aids.

Features of ‘Made for iPhone’ gear

Made for iPhone hearing not just offers ability to control the auditory experience in many ways but it also allows users to pipe sounds right from calls, music, videos, podcasts and other sources. On pairing iPhone with such hearing aids users get control over adjusting the volume, checking up the battery life as well as setting up audio presets for adjusting sounds in specific conditions. Apple also brings new feature called Live Listen which makes use of the iPhone microphone in order to pick up and transmit conversations and other sounds directly to the hearing device.

Using hearing aids on Android devices

Google has brought in simple features for the Android users which offer very basic accessibility features within the mobile operating system. Over the different phone and tablet makers has brought their own tools to enhance the accessibility features for the use of hearing on the Android devices. But the offering on the Android devices are not as polished and finished the Apple counterpart. However the silver lining for the ‘Made for iPhone’ device users is that a number of them can work with Android device offered by Google, Samsung and HTC. On other hand Microsoft has also brought support for the hearing aid with some of its models.

iPhone Spying Bugs Revealed By Wikileaks Have Been Fixed, Apple Says

Julian Assange
Apple Security Susceptibility - Fixed

The technology company has stated that the store of Apple security susceptibility which the CIA could use in order to infect the iPhones of users has been fixed.Successions of `zero-day’ susceptibilities existing in the intelligence agency had been disclosed by Wikileaks recently. Most of the tools had apparently been established by the British spy agency, GCHQ which is based in Cheltenham. It had been mentioned by Apple that to the best of the company’s knowledge, the bugs which had been disclosed in the leak of 8,761 documents has been fixed in the latest version of iOS – the iPhone as well as iPad operating system.

A spokesman had commented that `Apple is deeply committed in safeguarding the privacy and security of their customers. The technology which has been designed in the present iPhone seems to represent the best data security available to the users and that they are continuously working in keeping it that way. Their products as well as software have been created to get security updates instantly in the hands of consumers with almost 80% of the users utilising the latest version of their operating system.

He had further commented that while their initial analysis portrays that several of the issues leaked had already been patched in the latest iOS and that they would continue to strive to quickly address any identified susceptibilities. They would always urge customers to download the latest iOS ensuring that they have the most modern security updates.

Mobile Development Branch

`Vault 7’ release of WikiLeaks, which is the leading publication of secret CIA documents in the history of the agency, apparently disclosed sequences of bugs which had been developed to let spies monitor targets via iPhones, Android phones, computers as well as Samsung smart TVs together with extensively used devices like Wi-Fi router is also being described by experts as bigger than the leaks of Edward Snowden on the National Security Agency.

The leak provided 14 various iOS vulnerabilities though several of them had been related to the older versions of the operating system. For a long time, iPhone had been considered as more secure than the phone running the competing Google Android software owing to them receiving security updates much more rapidly.

The announcement made by WikiLeaks demanded that the CIA has a specialised unit in its `Mobile Development Branch which is dedicated to iOS devices owing to the reputation of the iPhone in the area of social, diplomatic, political and business elites.

CIA Stored Serious Security Susceptibilities

The significant risk is that nasty groups like foreign government hackers could learn the susceptibilities wherein they could put the daily users in danger. By law the spy agency has been prohibited from gathering intelligence which specifies domestic activities of Americans and is also restricted in how it could collect USA data for counter-intelligence commitments.

Recently WikiLeaks had mentioned that the documents portrayed that the Central Intelligence Agencies stored serious security susceptibilities instead of sharing with the public as called for under a procedure recognised by President Barack Obama.

Tim Cook, chief executive of Apple had fought a public battle with the FBI in connection with the agency’s efforts of compelling the company to unlock an iPhone which belonged to a terrorist. The company had informed that manufacturing a tool of this type would create a backdoor which the criminals as well as foreign states would utilise.

Innovation and discovery going hand in have led to the most astonishing products and made our dreams come true. Without technology, we are like nowhere. There is always a healthy competition between the top companies to ace the market. Well, ever since Steve Jobs led Apple has come into the market, they had reached a new height and now the legacy is continued by Tim Cook. Each year apple comes with iPhones especially in the end of September. There has always been curiosity and some speculations about the features of the upcoming about how it will change the market and put an impact in the tech market.

FEATURES

Well, the latest report about the upcoming iPhones is that there would be a 3-D selfie camera. To be more specific, it would be able to amp your face. It will involve both the process of authentication and augmented reality which the new iPhone will be having. The camera would also come handy when you want to check the distance of any object which is quite far away from the lens. If this feature comes into market, then it would only another feather into the cap.

THE COMPETITION

It already uses the technology to organise the photos based on the subjects that gets recognised in the images. To compete with the other stalwart companies like the Microsoft and Samsung which uses facial recognition to unlock the phone, Apple is also trying to bring something new. Well, apple promises to clear the bug or the faults that the users had in facial recognition with HP or other companies. The report states that the Apple has planned to use a depth sensing camera to remove the technical issues as well as other problems.

THE RESULT

The report says that the readings would be more accurate and the users won’t be having any sort of problem using this technology. Day in and day out, we are trying our best to match up to the latest technology and this will increase the desire to experience more. With the help of visual sensors, the make up or any sort of trick can be identified in the upcoming Apple iPhone. It can recognise the dark skin tones as well. The major concern would be the privacy. The technology would map your face but the major concern lies how the identification data would be used. People are still unaware of how Apple would solve this problem and it is a big curiosity among the multitude also.

RAISING EYEBROWS

The matter which would raise the eyebrows of the people is whether the privacy would be maintained by the company or not. And also whether the recognition can be disabled by the user or not. So for the confirmation, we just need to sit back and wait till the actuals beans are spilled. But one thing is pretty sure, that the people will enjoy a new experience from this.

iPhone SE: Still the Best Budget Smartphone on the Market.

iPhone SE
When Apple released the iPhone SE back in March of last year, branding it as a budget phone didn't go well with some critics. It was hard to see how being the cheapest iPhone automatically made it a great cheap phone. However, the smart analyst could tell, from day one, that the iPhone SE was the best value for money a smartphone was offering at the time.

As a much-needed update to the iPhone 5S, the iPhone SE remained just as compact while featuring the specs of the then latest flagship, the iPhone 6S. And all that came with a $399 price tag, which was the lowest launch price we'd ever seen on an iPhone, outdoing even the iPhone 5C, which began life at $549.

How Apple made the iPhone SE so cheap


The iPhone 5C was Apple's first major attempt into the realm of budget smartphones and, at first glance, it sure looked cheap. It was the first iPhone to feature a plastic case which, while giving the customer a variety of color choices, offered a build quality that couldn't match the steel and aluminum materials that were native to previous devices.

Despite the obvious compromises, the iPhone 5C started at $549, only $100 cheaper than the equivalent, premium flagship, the iPhone 5S. Of course, the iPhone 5C's price has since dropped considerably and, perhaps, it is now the budget phone that was promised. Regardless, it's still hard to ignore the fact that what Apple called "budget" at launch, was only a few dollars away from the premium price range of $600 and above.

Fast-forward to three years later, in 2016, and the tech giant was back, unveiling another "budget" phone. Many people took the news of an upcoming cheap iPhone as a plastic version of the iPhone 6S, Apple's flagship at the time, but were shocked when the iPhone SE came out with the iconic iPhone 5S design.

Sure, the SE wasn't the cheapest budget smartphone around. But, with high-end hardware and a friendly price tag, it was a proper fit for the “budget” category. Consequently, the world wondered how Apple managed to offer such exemplary value, when their earlier attempt, the iPhone 5C, had failed.

The explanation we got was that Apple used several components from older existing iPhones to make the SE. In fact, the $399 handset supposedly cost the Cupertino company only $160 to make, leaving the rest as profit. In addition, instead of making different versions for each carrier, the phone was made to work across all services, which saved on R&D and manufacturing.

These, among a number of other reasons, enabled Apple to finally give the world a smartphone worthy of the prefix "budget."

The iPhone SE: Features and Specs


What makes the SE a decent budget smartphone is the balance it offers between cost and high-end specs. Despite its resemblance to the iPhone 5S, the phone is far superior.

Design

 

The SE is designed to offer all the features of a fully-fledged flagship in a package that's much smaller and easier to handle. The blueprint might be old, but the phone still represents quality engineering. Its brushed metallic back is hard and rigid but feels cool to touch. One-hand use is easy, regardless of the size of your hands.

Display

 

Sporting the same 1136 x 640 resolution 4-inch display as the iPhone 5S, the SE's screen is undoubtedly its weakest feature. Nevertheless, it remains perfectly sharp for its size. Compared to the current AMOLED screens on modern Samsung devices, colors are less vibrant and punchy, but still "true" and accurate.

Sound


Audio from the bottom-facing speaker is surprisingly decent for such a small handset. Maximum volume isn't as high as some similarly-priced phones, but the sound is well balanced, and there's even a hint of bass.

Performance


Neither the design, the display or the audio makes the iPhone SE special, but scratching the surface reveals an entirely different beast. The gadget is equipped with a dual-core A9 processor and 2GB of RAM, which is the same configuration you get with the iPhone 6S.
iPhone SE_5


This might not seem like much when you put the specs sheet side to side with top-flight Android phones, but the SE is among the most powerful devices you can buy at its price. General performance is incredibly fast, and not even the most demanding games are too much for the little iPhone.

Camera


Things get even more interesting when you touch the camera icon. The rear iSight camera has the same 12MP sensor as the iPhone 6S, which means you'll be making use of one of the best phone cameras around.
iPhone SE_4


Both pictures and videos are of excellent quality, and the "easy to use" camera app makes the shooting experience pleasant overall. In comparison to some of the SE's high-end rivals, colors look more natural and life-like, and the noise is kept to a minimum, even in low light photography.

Battery

 

Lastly, despite the Li-ion cell being only a smidgen larger than the one on the iPhone 5S, the SE's battery life is more than 50 percent better than the older model’s. This is, in large part, a result of efficiency improvements that come with the A9, which reduce power drain significantly.

Still the best budget smartphone? 

 

The iPhone SE has a lot going on. In fact, the only significant trade-off a customer would be making if they choose it over the 6S is the smaller size. It's a solid phone that will please anyone looking to strike a bargain.
That said, it has been nearly one year since the SE first hit the shelves and, with the release of the iPhone 7 last year, it's no longer the latest offering from Apple.

The iPhone 7 might not come with radical redesigns, but new features such as water resistance and stereo speakers push the SE back through in the pack. Moreover, the flagship is powered by the new A10 CPU, which is much faster and more efficient than the A9. The SE might only be a generation behind, but it's aging.
On the bright side, however, the phone still offers more than most do at the same and even higher prices. Its impressive hardware coupled with impeccable iOS optimization makes it fast, smooth and stable with any app or game.

So, what raises doubt as to whether the SE is the best budget smartphone today is more the size than the age. If you're coming from a larger phone, it'll take a bit of time to adjust to the small screen, and you'll likely be better off with something bigger but within the same price range, like the Moto G4 or the LG Nexus 5X.
Nonetheless, anyone who loves being able to bend their leg when a phone is in the front pocket will feel at ease with the iPhone SE.

To the compact lover, therefore, the SE is indeed the best budget phone on the market.

iPhones Will be Accompanied with Wireless Charging

iPhone Wireless Charging
Any device that requires charge so that it becomes eligible to let its users get all the privileges fed in it, troubles its users with the problem of charging. iPhones are the best of the smartphones available in the market and the brand that produces it, is bent on providing utmost benefits to their users. Because of so many enticing features in iPhone, it is the best in the field, but apple is trying to take the notches a bit higher by eliminating the process of plug in, this would raise the standard of charging in iPhones and will introduce a new era of lightning connector.

News are such that Apple have forged an association with Wireless Power Consortium, a rumor has surrounded the planet that Apple is almost at the verge of adding wireless charging to iPhones, Apple will be the biggest producer to do if they manage to put up such a magnificent innovation, but it is sure that they cannot do it single handedly rather they might do it with the help of first-party accessory.

There is still isn’t any confirmation on this news. It was like one member from the board of the Blu-ray Disc Association who had never forged any association with a Blu-ray drive. Possibilities are also there that Apple might have reserved wireless charging, as it is a tactic used by many to create buzz by leaking the news in the market so that it arouses interest among the users, as Apple has done it for several devices like the Apple Watch. Whereas, the company to introduce Qi to iPhone would lead to a wide variety of implications.

As the rumors regarding iPhone 8 is swirling the entire market, Apple have tried and forged new plans so that wireless charging will start from now and the users would not have to wait for iPhone 8 to be launched in the market they can avail the facility of wireless charging on their current models of iPhones.

Apple associating itself with Qi is a major plan as it might benefit the performance of the standard in some ways. This combination would be surprising and people will look upto it that what it will have in store for their customers. It is suggested that this association would be really beneficial as it would lead to quicker charging of iPhones along with a wide variety of other features. They are also planning to forge a compatibility with other vendors of phone as well, so that the implementation can be conformed as soon as possible.

iPhone 7s Said to Keep Aluminum Design as iPhone 8 Gets Glass With Stainless Steel Frame

iPhone 8
Apple is all set to launch the next generation of iPhone this year after being snubbed for not-so innovative iPhone 7 last year. For this year Apple will be launching iPhone with 4.7 and 5.5 inch screen only. The smaller version will possess the usual aluminum casing while 5.5 inch will come with an undisclosed material while the all new 5.8 inch model will boasts a stainless steel frame. This has been reported by DigiTimes which is Taiwanese and it is known for keeping a tight tab on the Apple’s supply chain.

Not one or two but three iPhones this year

Apple is set to release three different iPhone this year which has taken everyone by surprise. This report is being attributed to sources right from the upstream supply chain. The largest 5.8 new model of the iPhone will feature the Samsung popular OLED display which can easily take the price of this smartphone shooting over $1000.

Apple opting for the OLED display is a smart choice as OLED is praised for its better color accuracy, wider viewing angles, faster response times as well as improvement in image sharpness. The three devices are being rumored to be iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 or Apple might go with the iPhone X. Apple is simply keep the tradition intact regardless of the snubbing by launching the upgraded variant of the iPhone 7 along with iPhone 8 this year.

Two actual scenarios which rumor suggests

The first scenario which very likely to play out in future is that Apple will opt for an edge to edge OLED display for its next iPhone range. It will also come loaded with the wireless charging capability and there will be an incremental upgrade to the screen size from traditional 4inch to 4.7 inch display. While the 5.5 inch iPhones will go with the usual LCD display and aluminum design.

The second scenario is that Apple will go on adding lass casing as well as wireless charging for the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7s models. Certainly this device will still feature the OLED display along with the much needed longer battery life. Thereby the traditional aluminum design will be left only on the older range of iPhone lineup while the entire latest model from 2017 onwards will opt for the OLED display as well as stainless steel frame.

Over the last couple of weeks a large number of rumors has emerged which showcases a wide number of features which will found on the next iPhone. Apple is expected to remove the iconic home button, 3D camera features, substantial increase in the internal storage space, iris or facial recognition technology along with an improved IP68-rate water resistance.

Though Apple like always has not made any official confirmation for the upcoming features and all of these can be regarded as a mere speculation. Apple will start the production for the next iPhone by next quarter and it will be unveiled in September as always.

Apple Attracts New iPhone Fans as Existing Owners Await Upgrade

iPhone
Apple iPhone 7 launch was heavily criticized by all both the tech critics as well as users but it hasn’t dull the Apple aura at all. Apple delivered its best quarters a year ago with the launch of iPhone 6s but such shipments volumes were not repeated with the iPhone 7 as most of the people vouched for waiting for better upgrade in upcoming years. However things are not as bad as it looks or appears to most of us. Quite on the contrary Apple has been able to attract whole new generation of iPhone customers during this last holiday season. The services revenue is raising steadily with the iPhone 7 shipments and the share for Apple rose to its highest level in as many as 17 months.

iPhone sales are driven by new customers

Apple has maintained that the iPhone users are upgrading to the iPhone 7 at the same rate as they upgraded to iPhone 6s last year. Apple has been able to sell about 3.5 million more phones in the third quarter of 2016 which were driven by new customers. iPhone 7 was snubbed by the critics as it offered modest upgrade over the last iPhone but it still brought a range of features which includes an improved camera, water resistance, improved processor and enhanced camera. 2016 being the 10 anniversary of the iPhone it was expected that Apple will bring turnaround changes in terms of designs and modifications of the smartphone but Apple failed lived up to the expectation.

Apple is working hard on the innovation front as its R&D spending had simply jumped by 19% and so far company has spent about $2.9 billion in the first quarter. During the holiday season of 2016 Apple’s total revenue increased by 3.3 percent to a commendable $78.4 billion and it has been able to earn about $3.36 a share. The major breakthrough made by the Apple in this holiday season is also attributed to fact that Samsung Note 7 were recalled due to battery explosions.

Apple iPhone is galloping

The US performance of Apple iPhone adoption or upgrading to latest iPhone is slow as carriers have plans wherein users get discounts on their new devices for next two years. This ensures that consumers stick with their older devices for longer time than necessary. However these kinds of plans came to an end in 2016 and it has opened up a greater audience ready or upgrade for Apple iPhone.

Apple year to year iPhone sale decline has reached its high during 2016 which forced Apple to give a push it services in order to keep generating revenue through its Apple Music, iCloud and App Store. Apple device ecosystem is closely linked with its range of services which brings a wide amount of revenue for Apple apart from keeping the user-experience streamlined across its devices. Quite recent Apple financial reports has shown that its services grown by 18 percent to a massive $7.2 billion. Apple has set its aim to double up the annual total to a goal of $50 billion by 2021.
