iPhone 11 Pro: All you Should Know About It

iPhone 11 Pro

Tuesday was the day Apple released its newest addition iPhone 11 Pro to its iPhone range. While there was a lot of talk of the phones, the thing that really stood out with people was the stove like camera set up going on at the back of the phone. The camera has a mid night green color, if you’ve ever heard of such a thing, and is called “slowfie”. But besides this there were still some features that went unnoticed or they were just overshadowed by the weird looking camera.

Talk about Wi Fi 6 and that’s exactly what we’re going to do:

Lo and behold the new iPhone 11 Pro as well as its siblings come with Wi Fi 6, the latest and greatest in wireless networking. This is just like what Samsung did with its S10 phone too. So it’s no surprise too that the Cupertino based company did it too. By having Wi Fi 6 does not mean that the new iPhone 11 pro will not be compatible with earlier version of Wi Fi. It’s just that now with the new Wi Fi in town, communication is a lot faster and larger amounts of data can be transferred at a time than before. Not only that the new Wi Fi 6 allows devices to conserve battery by scheduling transmissions. Besides that you’ll still get better reception even in crowded places such as airports and stadiums. But getting back to iPhone 11 Pro, you won’t see any of Wi Fi 6 just yet, since the New mode of communication isn’t certified at present.

iPhone 11 Pro with ultra- Wideband Chip:

This was not given enough attention in Apple’s keynote but is still worthy enough for a mention in their official product site. This new chip dubbed “U1” increases the phone’s spatial awareness. This basically means that they are better placed now to find other iPhones that are in close proximity to it, say like in the same room. This chip will seemingly work better with AirDrop a feature that allows you to share files wirelessly with another iPhone. So just by pointing you’re device to the other iPhone in the room you’ll be able to send files to it.

iPhone 11 Pro with 18W Charger in the Box:

This is something that Samsung users have enjoyed for a little while now, I’m talking fast charging. Now Apple’s in on the game too with the new 18W USB C charger that it will ship with iPhone 11 Pro and its max counterpart. Seemingly you’ll be able to get 50% charge in just 30 minutes with this new charger in tow.

Gained a Little more weight this time around:

The iPhone 11 Pro and its max sibling weigh just a little bit more this year as compared to its last year’s counterpart. 18 grams more to be exact. But it may just fly under the radar since the weight increase isn’t that much.

iOS 13 Public Beta: How to Get Your Hands on the latest Public Beta?

iOS 13 Public Beta
September 10th is the day when Apple plans on launching iPhone 11 and with that the final version of iOS 13. For iPhone users iOS 13 is the OS to wait for. iOS 13 promises to bring speed improvements, updates to many built in apps, a new dark mode, besides others. It’s no surprise then why many would like to get their hands on the newest beta already.  If you’re interested in learning how to install iOS 13 public beta then keep on reading… iOS 13 public beta was made available shortly after it was announced in early June.

By June 24th many developers could take a look see at what the newest iOS has in store. The early 24th June release was way before schedule. Apple besides other tech companies normally release the public beta version of an OS before its official release to solve any bug related problems the OS may bring. After the public beta release there are a number of updates till the official release to cure the iOS of any bug related malady.

 So coming back to iOS 13 pubic beta, the OS has had some seven updates till now with the seventh update just being rolled out. While developers get their hands on the 8th version, the public is given to try out the older one. Long story short, the earlier version of iOS 13 public beta was way too unstable to install. Now since users can get their hands on the seventh version, it is presumably a little more safer to install, that is by not turning your iPhone into a brick.

At this stage you will have less bugs to contend with, there may still be some minor issues that may occasionally pop up. So there are two options on the table, either wait for the official bug free release in September or install iOS 13 in its public beta garb right now. If you just can’t seem to wait for the September release, then there is a way in which you can install the latest version of iOS 13 today.

But Should You Download iOS 13 Public beta?

There are two betas- the developer betas and public betas. The major difference lies in who you are. By that I mean if you’re a – non-developer - user then the Public Beta, is deemed fit enough to install by Apple.

That being said, you may not have the headache – phone – stopping – app – crashing – bugs – around but you may still run into the average bug. Yes, even in spite of the 7th update. If you’re dependent on your phone for a lot of important stuff, who isn’t, then you might want to give iOS 13 public beta a skip.

Another option is that if you have a backup iOS device then you might want to try and install the beta version there first. No matter what you decide on doing, rule of thumb- always keeps a backup of your data in case things don’t go as planned. Now to, is your Device Compatible with iOS 13?

iPhone 6s users and above will be able to install the latest iOS. This includes iPhone SE as well. The newly released seventh generation iPod touch too can run the update. All iPhones released in 2015 won’t be able to see the light of a new software update. Coming to the iPad, Apple has made the iPad run its own OS which is now currently on iPad OS 13 4th public beta.

Finally, How to Install iOS 13 Public Beta?

To get iOS 13 installed you need to first enroll in Apple’s Public beta. To do so, head on to the Beta program page and log in using your credentials aka Apple ID and password. Once you agree to the terms, follow these simple steps to get started.

These steps will install the iOS 13 profile onto you’re device and then the install will begin. Under the getting started page, tap on the link to get your device enrolled onto the beta version of iOS 13. Once this is done you’ll be directed to the profile download page, where you just have to click on the download button.

On your iPhone you’ll be asked if you would allow the profile to be installed. Click on allow, because that’s why you’re here for anyway, and get things started. After this you need to head on to the settings app on your phone to enable the profile you just installed.

On the settings app you’ll see a notice saying that a profile is ready to be installed. Then tap profile downloaded. Once this is done at the side of the profile you just downloaded, click on install and follow the prompts to restart your phone. When the phone restarts the beta will automatically start downloading.

If you’d like to check the progress of the download, you can to do so in the same way you would a normal system update by looking at the General sub menu in Settings. If iOS 13 Public Beta isn’t up your alley and for any reason you would like to return to your older version then you can do so by pressing on the remove profile button in the General tab.

Getting the Latest Version of iOS 13 Public Beta?

Once you’ve installed iOS 13 public beta onto your phone, the next step is to get the latest version of it installed. This you can do by simply heading on to settings and then the General tab. Once there simply tap on Software Update and you’re done.

You’re iPhone will check whether you’re software is up to date and if not will prompt you to install the latest version. Then it’s a simple question of following the onscreen prompts to install the latest version of iOS 13 public beta. As mentioned earlier Apple plans on releasing iOS 13,that is the official version, along with its latest iPhone 11 at a special event to be held on September the 10th.

iPhone 11 to be launched by Apple

iPhone 11
Smartphone case maker ESR has leaked out the names of the smartphones to be launched by Apple. Apple is likely to name its flagship smartphones as iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. These names are leaked by ESR just a few weeks ahead of the launching of the Apple iPhone lineup.

What do we know about iPhone 11 Series?


Apple has not given any information on its official channels. Based on the labels ESR has used for the cases, we can anticipate these names for the Apple iPhone lineup. ESR has used the branding for its leather cases and screen protectors. They are confident of the names Apple will be using for their smartphones that will be launched in a few weeks.

The case maker, ESR is aware of the design of the three smartphones. The design from the front will be simple and similar to the earlier smartphones. The back will come with a triple lens camera in a square design. The square bump is not too attractive, but they may spring a surprise of extra capability like a wide angle lens.

Through some leak, the iPhone 11 series may come in black, white, gold and dark green shades. Some models may have a rainbow finish.

Though they have made guesses regarding the names of the smartphone series, they may not be totally accurate.

The iPhone 11 will be the successor of iPhone XR. It is most likely to come with a 6.1 inch LCD display and a dual rear camera.


More about  New iPhone



The iPhone 11 Pro will be the successor of the iPhone XS. It will feature the 5.8 inch OLED display along with a triple rear camera.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max will feature a 6.5 inch OLED display. It will be the successor of iPhone XS Max. This smartphone along with the iPhone 11 Pro is tipped to have a square camera bump with a triple camera module.

The iPhone 11 may be launched on September 10. This information was based on the seventh trial iOS 13 version which was released for developers. An image in the system files suggest the launch date of iPhone 11 as September 10.

The next gen iPhones can be expected to be powered by the A 13 chip. The A 13 chip is the successor to Apple’s A 12 Bionic chipset.

The SoftBank President Ken Miyauchi accidently let out that the new iPhone models will go on sale on September 20.

The new iPhone 11 series will probably have a slight upgrade. There may not be any amazing changes or upgrading in the iPhone 11. There may be some smart features for charging and probably 5G.

The iPhone 11 price could start at $999. Considering that there will not be any significant change to the design and functionality, a price hike is highly unlikely.With leaked news that Apple will not be selling as many iPhones as previously forecast, they will be affordably priced.

RASMAN Bug: New Bug to Watch Out for

Windows RASMAN Bug
Windows 10 users might need pest control or in technical terms a “fix” for what is now a newly discovered bug called RASMAN or Remote Access connection Manager bug. The bug seemingly affects only the version 1903 of Windows 10 and not any older versions.

What does Remote Access connection Manager or the RASMAN bug Do?

RASMAN basically is a software that manages VPNs and Windows connections to the outside world or to the more commonly known internet.

The bug will consequently affect this part of Windows functioning. Microsoft even went on their support page and said that RASMAN would stop working and an error “0xc0000005” will be displayed. It has also been noted that this bug seems to be seen only on PCs where the VPN is pegged as always on or “AOVPN” instead of manual only VPN connections.

A Fix for the RASMAN Bug in Store? 


Microsoft says that they are working on a fix as we speak or as I type and will most probably be available later this month.

At present there are no real estimates of the range of this bug. But according to Forbes the number of users affected could range in the 50 million range.

Who’s Affected by the RASMAN Bug? 


The RASMAN bug only affects user’s VPN connections. The bug was first discovered in the recent Windows 10 May 2019 Update. Remote Access Connection Manager typically runs in the background to ensure smooth functioning for the always – on – kinda – VPN. Besides the always – on variety, even VPNs with dial up connections may be impacted.

There are many people worldwide who use a VPN connection, so the number of users affected is likely to be huge. Running in the millions.

Besides getting the error mentioned by Microsoft, you may also see error in the application section in windows Logs coming with Event ID 1000. This will reference an error “svchost.exe_RasMan” and you may also see “rasman.dll”.

As mentioned earlier only users with an always on VPN connection will be affected. So, this is most likely going to affect users in enterprises or in countries subject to strict government control or high levels of censorship.

A Workaround? 


There is also a workaround for the issue by tweaking a few settings. First you have to go to Computer configuration, then Administrative templates. When there, go on to windows components and then data collection and preview builds. There choose allow telemetry and then change the value of safe policy to enabled and set it to either 1 which is basic or 2 enhanced or 3 full.

The alternate route involves the registry file. If you’re someone comfortable with doing this then locate the value for SubKey

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Policies>Microsoft>Windows>dataCollection and then you can change the telemetry settings to 1, 2 or 3 depending on whether you want it as basic, enhanced or full.

If, however you don’t like messing around with registry files or group policy settings then you can always wait for the Windows fix.

Sodin Encryption Ransomware: New Ransomware Found

Sodin Encryption Ransomware: New Ransomware Found



Top security firm- Kaspersky recently discovered a new ransomware that seemingly targets a known Windows flaw to get elevated privileges. Encryption Ransomware Sodin as the ransomware has come to be known, takes advantage of the architecture of the CPU to avoid anyone from discovering it. This is something that is not commonly seen in ransomware.

A top Security researcher up at Kaspersky also said that it’s not everyday that they get to see ransomware that was so elaborate and sophisticated. As mentioned earlier the whole using – of – CPU Architecture – to – avoid – detection is not something that encryptors normally do.

Number of Attacks Expected with Encryption Ransomware Sodin: 


Experts expect a rise in the number of attacks involving ransomware- sodin. They say this as it is an extremely sophisticated system that involves a lot of resources to create. No encryptor is going to go to all that trouble and money, not to mention, to create a ransomware without any chances of a huge pay off.

Areas Targeted by the Ransomware- Sodin: 


This ransomware has targeted many countries of the world with a spat of the ransomware being seen in Asia. Countries such as Taiwan have been detected with 17.6% of the total attacks and with a 9.8% in Honk Kong. Add to that an 8.8% in the Republic of Korea, and the total comes up to 36.2% in Asia alone. These are just those figures that have been discovered at present.

Asia is not the only the continent to be affected too. Europe, America and Latin America have also reported cases of Sodin.

Besides simply affecting the system, victims were also to pay up $2500 worth of Bitcoin to free up their systems from the control of Sodin.

More about Sodin: 


There was an earlier vulnerability known as CVE-2018-8453 which was used by a hacking group known as FruityArmor. However, this vulnerability was patched on the 10th of October 2018. It was this vulnerability that is used by Sodin to gain control of a user’s PC.


How to Avoid Getting in the grasps of  this ransomware: 


To ensure that you don’t fall a prey to the ransomware- Sodin, make sure you’ve got the latest in software updates on your PC.

Kaspersky researchers also said that by having security products that made regular assessments on vulnerabilities as well as giving patches would help solve problems such as these.

CyberArk have tested Sodin and have found that it can’t get through to Endpoint Privilege Manager’s feature set. The set is a combination of least privileges, application control policies on end point and servers and credential theft protection. CyberArk has tested millions of samples of various ransomware to better understand the infection and how to remove it.

Based on this research, the system is able to identify all known ransomware. For those that it does not have any prior knowledge about, it marks as suspicious and protects information accordingly.

This means that if one end point becomes infected the rest are protected from an organised attack.

Foldable iPad on Apple’s Cards?

Foldable iPad
The beginning of 2019 seen a slew of foldable gadgets but since then or after the frenzy surrounding all those foldables died, we’ve seen nothing as yet. An example in point, is Samsung’s Galaxy Fold Phone, after the phone suffered screen durability issues, the launch was delayed indefinitely. After that all has been silent on the foldables end. That is till now… Reports are now rife with Apple coming out with its own foldable, but this time around it’s not a phone but a foldable iPad in store.

Clarity is required on Apple’s Maybe New foldable iPad: 


At present it’s not really clear whether the foldable iPad would be a folding single screen, much like in the-not – to – be - heard – of – Samsung Folding Phone or in the Huawei phone prototype. Or maybe it will fold closer to what a laptop does, that is it may come with dual screen too.

It also said that the new foldable iPad may come in a MacBook sized Screen which wouldn’t be something surprising as the biggest iPad already comes in at 12.9 inches. But the real catcher would be to see how they would make an apparent iPad mini to fold out to a 13 or say 15inch screen.

5G with the Foldable iPad, Maybe? 


According to the same report, they also said that the new foldable iPad would also have support for a 5G network. This would make for faster internet speeds when browsing the internet or even watching Netflix.

But this too seems like a stretch, given that Apple has a well- documented history of trying to get 5G on it’s iPhones. The latest news is that the new 5G compatible iPhones may come out in late 2020. So, to say that a foldable iPad is coming out with 5G connectivity is something of a stretch at this point.

There were also rumours that Apple could be bringing out 5G on the iPad first before the iPhone. The said iPad, they also said would come out sometime in late 2020.

At the same time IHS Markit also said that the upcoming 16- inch MacBook Pro would come out in 3072 x 1920 resolution display.

iPhones set to Release this Year: 


At present no Apple device comes with 5G connectivity. It maybe even sometime now till we see an iPhone or an iPad with 5G connectivity.

The company based off of Cupertino, is all set to unveil three iPhone models later this year. But don’t hold your breath, none of them are pegged to come out with 5G connectivity.

Testing of 5G Networks in Major Cities: 


Before Apple could get to testing 5G in its hardware, many cities worldwide have begun testing 5G networks.

Last month it was even released that Apple could be making a 5G chip. This chip is pegged to take as long as 6 years to make. Making it a 2025 launch.

By that time, who knows we could even have 6G on our hands….

ROG STRIX XG17:World’s First Portable Gaming Monitor

ROG STRIX XG17:World’s First Portable Gaming Monitor
Online gaming is getting bigger and better every day. Every online game has massive dedicated audience who eats, sleeps, and breathes gaming. Whether they are travelling or away for business, gaming has always been their priorities. Many of them usually travel for these huge gaming tournaments all over the world, but often get stuck with whatever displays their laptop offer. Here is where ROG STRIX XG17 comes to the rescue. It is a portable gaming monitor manufactured by Asus. It’s a spellbinding solution to a problem we honestly didn’t know existed.

ROG STRIX XG17: Design and specifications 


The ROG STRIX XG17 supports a 240Hz refresh rate and a 3ms response time, which refers to the number of times per second that a screen updates itself. The faster the rate, the smoother your image will be without any lag. This will help gamers play high resolutions games at a competitive level. It has a 17.3-inch display with a native resolution of 1920x1080 which delivers wide viewing angle. The monitor also has two USB-C ports, micro HDMI, 1 W stereo speakers and a 7800mah battery. One the same side of the ports there is a power and a volume buttons.

Thankfully, the ROG STRIX XG17 has a matte screen, so you won’t have to worry about fingerprints and it is surrounded by metal chassis. That means it will be durable and easy to maintain. The monitor is remarkably thin and light, and it comes with a smart folded cover that can be used as a stand. We still don’t know the color reproduction specs, but it looks pleasant and accurate. The display colors are vibrant and not over saturated.

Performance of ROG STRIX XG17


Because of the limited time we had, we could not run our entire test on this monitor, but we can say the gaming experience was exceptional. It was incredibly smooth. Testing with the Division 2 we didn’t notice any kind of slowdown or lag.

It will be interesting to see how this gaming monitor performs when it’s actually pushed to its limits. As the company promises 3 hours of battery life, it will also be fascinating to see how much is the battery life effected with high refresh rate games.

Easy to carry 


Although ROG STRIX XG17 is loaded with features and specifications complimented by a huge convenience factor. It is specially customized for life on the road. Its matte panel resists fingerprints and the brushed surface on the back prevents from scratches.

Because of its light weight and slick design, the monitor easily fits into your luggage without any issue.The smart cover protects the screen during travel and also folds into many possible positions.The bright dynamic display improves visual during day light.

The ROG STRIX XG17 is undeniably a compelling product. Playing your favorite game in this portable high refresh rate gaming monitor with a 17-inch display is something you don’t want to miss out.The only fault we have found is where we have to use directional buttons together with the power key to go through the menu options. Otherwise, the product looks outstanding. However, our recommendation solely depends on the product price and its practicality in real world.

iPad Pro vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6: Does iPadOS make for a Better Bet?

iPad Pro vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6: Does iPadOS make for a Better Bet?
The real question is whether with the new iPadOS, is the iPad Pro a good substitute for the average day laptop? At the recent WWDC 2019 Apple introduced iPadOS an OS especially for iPads. Seemingly, the iPadOS breaks away from the normal iOS productivity limitations. Only time will tell whether the new iPadOS has got what it takes to transform an iPad into a real laptop substitute. Right now,iPadOS is in Beta testing, so to see if it is really has what is promised, we’re here to check it out. To check it out we’ve chosen to do a comparison between the iPad Pro vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6.

Buzz Around the new iPadOS Feature- Bluetooth Mouse Support in the Battle between iPad Pro vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6: 


With the coming of iPadOS many are eagerly awaiting the new Bluetooth mouse support. As you and me thought the Bluetooth mouse support is the first step in making the iPad a legitimate laptop. But this thought has turned out to be a major let down.

CNET’s Scott Stein recently discovered that what we thought of to be a good addition to the iPad is actually something that is buried in deep in the accessibility menu. To be exact it’s not your average day mouse, it just seems to be something to help people who find touchscreen bothersome.

In this battle of iPad Pro vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6, the tables are already leaning to Microsoft Surface Pro 6.

Let’s Deal with the most Important Feature- The OS: 


The OS in both systems is sometimes the make and break feature. iPad pro may have got a shiny new OS but can it compare with what the Microsoft Surface Pro 6 has going on for it? I think not. Even with iPadOS and all it has to offer it really is no match for Microsoft’s Window’s 10.

This basically means that you can run Win32 software and a lot more that iPads simply can’t or will not be able to do.

If you get you’re hands on iPadOS you’ll be able to get all that is there in App store. While there are millions of apps in the app store, some apps do not have a mobile compatible operation for some desktop apps.

Multitasking in the Battle of iPad Pro vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6: 


Talking about multitasking, there’s nothing better than a desktop OS. What you take for granted in a Desktop OS is something that is sorely missing out on an iPad. You can easily switch between two, three or even four apps on a desktop application while in an iPad that is just not possible. Talk about smooth workflow.

iOS 11 and 12 however are not all that bad to work with. They do have a File app for example that let’s you access local as well as cloud storage. You can even drag and drop text and files between apps. With iPadOS on the way you can even connect to external storage and save files like you would do on a traditional laptop. As for multitasking at present that’s just limited to having two apps open side by side.

SwiftUI: Better Apps with Less Code

SwiftUI
With SwiftUI on your side, you can effortlessly build user interfaces across all the different platforms of apple. You can do this by the power of Swift. Also, you with this UI, you will get the chance to build your UI with more innovation and exceptional creativity. Well, you can develop UI on any of the Apple's devices. The only thing that you need to take care is to use a set of tools as well as API. In addition to that, you can also keep your design and code in perfect synchronization. Let us fathom the perks of SwiftUI further.

SwiftUI: Declarative Syntax


Well, SwiftUI consists of declarative syntax. And for this reason, you will get the chance to state what you should do with your interface. For instance, you can write what lists of items you want like text field, font, alignment, color for each field and the description of the alignment. Your code will be simple, and also, it will become easy to understand. It will help you to save time as well as maintenance. Also, you can make use of this declarative style to incorporate complex concepts such as animation. You can effortlessly add animations and select any of the ready-to-use effects. You have to provide a few lines of codes.

Design tools


Xcode 11 comprises of instinctive new design tools that can craft building surfaces with the help of SwiftUI. It is as relaxed as dragging and dropping. Whenever you are working in design canvas, all the things that you are editing will in complete sync with the help of the code in the adjoining editor. The code will be visible to you a preview when you are typing and if you are making any change that will also appear in front of your code. Well, the Xcode will recompile all your changes immediately and incorporate them in the running version of the app. That will be visible and editable all the time.
Drag and drop- You can arrange all the components of your user interface. You have to drag the controls on the colour canvas.

Dynamic replacement- The Swift compiler, as well as the run time, is fully entrenched through the Xcode. And for that reason, your app is continuously going through built and run. The design canvas that you are witnessing is not the approximation of your interface but is your running app.

Previews- Now, you will get chance to create more than one previews of any of the SwifyUI views. In this way, you can get the sample data and configure almost all the things that your viewers will see. That could be dark mode, fonts as well as localizations.

SwiftUI is compatible with all the platforms of apple


SwiftUI was after a considerable time of experience, and that is why it is one of the most instinctive and innovative user interfaces in the world. The best part about this user interface is, it is compatible with all the platforms of apple.

So, here is all the things that you need to know about SwiftUI.

All you need to know about Apple Card

All you need to know about Apple Card
Apple Card is the new credit card that will be launched by Apple later in the year. The card will be linked to Apple Pay and built into the Wallet App. The iPhone users can sign up for this card.

For the Apple Card, Apple is partnering with Goldman Sachs. It will be linked to Apple Pay and can be used just like any other credit card for all your transactions.

How do you sign up for the Apple Card? 


You need to open the Wallet app, tap on the Apple Card interface and go through the activation steps. As soon as you have signed up for the card, you can use it for digital purchases. However, there will be a pre-qualified application process which needs to be done. Based on your credit approval, you will qualify for the card.

In the event of traditional purchases, you need to have the physical Apple Card.

How to use Apple Card with Apple Pay? 


This credit card works with any credit or debit card that is stored in the Wallet app for use with Apple Pay. The credit card could be set as the default card for online purchases on your iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch. It could also be used for in store purchases on your iPhone.

How to use Apple Card for Non-Apple Pay purchases? 


If you need to make purchases that cannot be made with Apple Pay, then you need to use the physical Apple Card. The physical card will be sent by Apple when you have signed up for it.

Besides partnering with Goldman Sachs, Apple will be in collaboration with Mastercard. The physical card can be used wherever Mastercard is accepted.

The physical Apple Card


This card is made from titanium. It is laser etched and has your name on it. The front of the card does not have a card number or expiry date. The back of the card does not have the CVV number nor the signature. In the eventuality of your card getting lost or stolen, no one can use it for making online purchases.

On the card, however, there is the usual magstripe on the back along with the built-in chip. This is used for making chip and pin purchases. In case you need the CVV number and card number, you can get it from the Wallet app.

Once you receive your physical card, you can activate it by tapping it to the iPhone. The physical card does not support contactless payments. You need to use your iPhone for Apple Pay payments.
You do not need to pay for the Apple Card and there is no fee for getting a new card in case you lose it.

The employees of Apple are provided with Apple Cards for testing purposes, before its launch in the summer.

There is a credit limit for the creditcard. It will vary from person to person depending on the credit score.

You can pay your Apple Card balance through a linked bank account or Apple cash in the Wallet app.

Apple’s next iPhone comes with a new Touch ID

Apple’s next iPhone comes with a new Touch ID
According to a patent granted, Apple’s next iPhone will feature a new Touch ID method. The new Touch ID method allows the users to unlock the device by placing the finger anywhere on the screen. This Touch method could be available on Apple’s next iPhone which is scheduled for a September launch.

The patent known as “Methods of Biometric Imaging of Input Services” was discovered by Patently Apple. Though the patent was filed in September 2016, it was announced to the public only recently.
The new Touch method allows users to unlock their device by either placing their finger, cheek or ear anywhere on the screen.

The facial recognition technology was seen with the launch of iPhone X in 2017.

Apple’s next iPhone with fingerprint reader


The new Touch method which is slated to be launched in Apple’s next iPhone describes this latest system. The fingerprint reader is embedded in the display which is in the front of the device.

When you place your finger anywhere on the screen, you will be able to unlock your phone. This will then enable you to make payments and even enter your password by just touching the screen.

According to the patent, the iPhone maker is even looking at other possibilities of the sensors unlocking the device. Besides the finger, the sensors could recognize the user’s ear or cheek to unlock the iPhone. This could be expected in Apple’s next iPhone.

The traditional Touch ID method was seen in the iPhone 5S.The fingerprint reader was under the home button which was at the bottom of the device.

Cool Features of Apple's next iPhone


With the advent of Apple’s newer iPhones, the maker has embraced edge-to-edge display design. With the result, the home button was replaced by gesture-based controls as well as Face ID, the facial recognition technology.

This latest Touch ID method allows Apple to maintain the bezel-less screen design. Apple’s next iPhone will allow users to unlock their devices by touching anywhere on the screen.
According to the patent, there is an Acoustic imaging system that enables the sensor to capture the fingerprint of the user.

This is fairly accurate as compared to optical scanners. In an optical scanner, the photo of the user’s fingerprint is used as reference point.

The Acoustic imaging system captures high resolution texture maps of an object. Every tiny detail including the ridges in a fingerprint as well as scars are picked up.

Apple’s next iPhone will not be the first to release with this technology. This has already been available in the Samsung Galaxy S10 where an in-display fingerprint reader is used. This technology is also seen in Huawei Mate 20 and the OnePlus 6T.

This new Touch ID slated to be launched in Apple’s next iPhone, will offer its customers a very useful feature. Even though the Face ID feature is good, it is more convenient to unlock the device with your fingerprint.

Apple had patented its in-display reader in August, so this idea has been there for quite a while.

Apple AirPower- The Epitome of Wireless Charger

Apple AirPower
Apple launched its Apple AirPower to cope up with the mess that comes up with charging cables of your AirPods, iPhone as well as Apple Watch. Well, it is nothing but a wireless charging pad with a goal of getting rid of the hassles of the wires. Apple revealed the AirPower at the iPhone X event but never provided with the enough details. After the span of a year, Apple killed the project.

In a press statement, Dan Riccio, senior Vice president of hardware engineering department of apple, killed the AirPower project officially. He said that, “After much effort, we have concluded it will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project. We apologize to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward.”

What do the rumors say about Apple AirPower? 


According to some recent rumors, it has been observed that AirPower can come back to the board. Some tweets by Steve Troughton Smith claimed he has heard that the AirPower has been fixed. Another tweet by the ChargerLabspecified that a ‘credible source’ informed that Luxshare Precision (who manufactures apples AirPods and USB-C cables) again started the manufacturing of the Apple AirPower.

Discussion on the working principle of Apple AirPower. 


Well, to use the AirPower, all you have to do is to place the pad on the desk or wherever you want, if you want to charge your device. After that, you have to plug it into a power outlet. Next, you just have to place your device into it with the front of the device facing up and then your device will start charging.

Well, let us understand the technical aspects a bit more. It uses the process of induction where an electromagnetic field is utilized for the purpose of transferring power to the device from the Apple AirPower. The time, when you are placing your device in the AirPower, it is receiving signals from it. If everything goes accordingly, you will witness the charging of your device.

Almost all the devices of apple are compatible with Apple AirPower. Be it iPhone, Apple watch or the AirPods, you can charge them in Apple AirPower. There are few exceptions, which will not work with the AirPowerby apple. In case of iPhone, only iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X are compatible with the AirPower. Similarly, you can only charge the Apple Watch Series 3 with the help of an AirPower. Again, you can also charge your AirPods with it but you have to make sure that you have the new case of AirPods, which was announced in the new iPhone X event.

These are the facts that you need to know about Apple AirPower. Now, it is the time when we have to examine that whether apple is going to bring back the Apple AirPower or not. Only time will decide the future of it.

iPhone Case Study for Business Studies: Quality Sources to Use

iphone
When writing a case study, there are a number of aspects you have to follow to make sure that your case study flows and it’s accurate. A case study is usually a piece of content that is published and provides an outline to another client or individual about the effectiveness of your product. For a product to have a long shelf life and a good reputation, case studies will have to back up their claims. Case studies are a good marketing tool for companies to showcase their best products. So, when we write a case study, we need to make sure the sources of information that we use are accurate and up-to-date and suitable for the actual product we are talking about.

Let’s now take a look at writing a business studies case study on an iPhone. We shall cover some of the best sources that you can use and also give you a brief outline of what to include in your case study.

The Manufacturer 


If you are writing a case study about a product, then visiting or looking at the manufacturer’s website is the best way to get the product information about the product you are writing about. The site should cover aspects such as specifications, pricing, availability, and product performance. All of these aspects are useful bits of information when writing a case study. Not all manufacturers will be able to give you all the information that you require, but it is a good starting point for your research.
The Internet

As you can imagine, the Internet offers a variety of sources, which you can use for a case study. Although these are web-based, each individual websites or forums will have different information that you can draw upon to make sure that your case study is full of useful information. The Internet is a powerful tool because you will be able to look at other case studies that have been conducted about a particular product, and you can look at previous examples of other case studies which will give you some direction as to what the best aspects to cover are and to include in your case study. Finally, the Internet is up to date and if you look at a site’s publication date, it will give you an idea as to when the information was posted. This is an advantage to the Internet as the information is ever-changing, which means you can get access to what you require and access to all the information that is available.

The Library 


The second source and by no means a lesser source is the library. A library can offer you a great amount of information as they contain both books and journals, which will highlight the history of the product or service that you are referring to. Most libraries also have Internet access, which means you can also access a great number of journals via a PC or a laptop. This provides you with a great time saving tool, as you will not have to trawl through a large number of books/journals to find the information you are after. Don’t underestimate the usefulness of the library as a source of information.

Writing a Case Study 


Once you have gathered off of your information, you now need to consider the best methodology to use when it comes to writing a professional case study from scratch.

As we’ve mentioned above, case studies give a company the chance to tell their best story about a product, so in essence, the first thing that you must consider when writing a case study is to make sure that the information you convey is about the company, their story and about the product itself. Be clear and concise and try to simplify the product if it is overly complicated.

Another aspect to consider when you are writing a case study is that it is a customer’s view of a company, rather than a company’s view of itself. This type of case study is fantastic when you are trying to get a true feeling of what the product is actually like. When a product is marketed, only the benefits and the positives of the product are highlighted. Any downsides or negative aspects are left out. However, with a case study, you get real-life experience.

Above we have outlined where to get source information as well as some of the most important areas that you should consider when writing a case study. At the start, we mentioned writing an iPhone case study. This should be relatively straightforward as there should be an abundance of information available via all of the sources we have listed. Also, don’t be frightened to conduct your own bit of research when you’re writing your case study, as this will give the reader a greater insight as you will be able to provide information related to your own personal experiences about the product as well as the experiences of others that you have spoken to. As iPhones have been around for such a long time, there should be no reason why obtaining a lot of information about them from many different aspects should be challenging.

The final point that you should always remember when writing a case study about a product is that the meaning that you want to convey has to be accurate and from a customer’s point of view.

There may be several occasions where you have either misplaced your iPhone or it may have slipped out of your pocket. In the eventuality of your smartphone or iPhone being misplaced, the first thing to do is call the number. The bigger problem that arises is when the iPhone has been switched in Silent mode, then finding the “silent” iPhone could be a problem.

Sometimes, the iPhone could be on “silent” mode or “do not disturb” mode. Finding your “silent” iPhone could be very daunting for some. However, there is no need to worry anymore. All is not lost!!! There is an easy method of finding your “silent” iPhone or the iPhone that is switched in the Silent mode or ‘Do not disturb’ mode.

If you are a regular iPhone user, then you must be aware of the ‘Find my iPhone’ feature to help in tracking the iPhone that is lost, misplaced or even locking the lost iPhone.

But the “Find my iPhone” feature is also used to make your iPhone ring when it is in Silent mode or even in the ‘Do not disturb’ mode.

The “Find my iPhone” is an app that is very handy in the eventuality that you have lost or misplaced your iPhone that is switched in the Silent mode. This app makes your iPhone ring even when it is in vibrate or silent mode or even the Do not disturb mode.

The method of finding your “silent” iPhone


There is an app known as ‘Find my iPhone’ on icloud.com. When you use that app, you will be sending an alert signal to your iPhone that will help you locate your device. Apple will basically override the ‘silent mode’ that your device has been switched to. A loud beeping will be heard on your device, thus making it easy to locate your device.

How the alert signal is triggered is still not very clear.

There are a few things however, that need to be noted to enable you in finding your ‘Silent” iPhone.
The most important thing is that you should have enabled the ‘Find my iPhone’ in settings under iCloud. To do that, you first need to go to iCloud, then Settings and when you scroll down you will see the ‘Find my iPhone’ which needs to be enabled.

Another handy tip is to turn on the ‘Send Last Location’. This data will automatically be uploaded to Apple just before the battery dies.

There are two important things that need to be done prior to your iPhone being lost. The first pre-requisite is you need to make sure your iPhone has been connected to the internet. The second is to make sure that your iPhone has the “Find my iPhone” feature enabled in the Settings in iCloud. There are various steps you need to follow for finding your “silent” iPhone.

The steps you need to follow in order to enable you in finding your “silent” iPhone 


Finding your “silent” iPhone can be done either from your PC or Mac, your Apple Watch or iPad.

There are basically three steps you should follow for finding your “silent” iPhone.

First, you need to visit www.icloud.com either on your PC or Mac. Then log in by entering your credentials. Then click on the ‘Find my iPhone’.

In the second step, you may need to enter your Apple id and password. A map will appear, showing all the Apple devices where the ‘Find my’ feature has been enabled. You need to click on ‘All devices’ which appears on the top.Clickon your iPhone from the list of devices.

Then we come to the third step. The next screen that appears will show the location of your iPhone on the map. On the map that appears on the right, you will get a 3D representation of the location of your iPhone. The tracking options for your iPhone will also appear on the top right hand corner of the screen. There will be the ‘Play Sound’ option that will appear at the bottom of the screen. Click the ‘Play Sound’ and if your iPhone is connected to the internet, this will trigger your iPhone to send out alert signals.

If you have a speaker or a boom box, then you need to first call your iPhone. Have a long cord attached to the speaker, so that you can go all around the house to track your device. The speaker may make weird sounds and when the sound gets louder, it will be an indication that you are somewhere close to your iPhone. If the sounds are not as loud and less frequent, it means that you are moving away from your device. Hopefully, the loud and frequent sound helps you in finding your “silent” iPhone.

Tracking the direction of the sound will enable you in finding your “silent” iPhone.

Once you have located your “silent” iPhone you can turn off the sound.
