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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Easy Way of Finding Your “Silent” iPhone

The Easy Way of Finding Your “Silent” iPhone
Many of us lose or misplace pretty much anything. It may be the keys of the house, the remote controls or even your smartphones. 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.

Finding your “silent” iPhone with the help of your PC or Mac

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.

Finding your “silent” iPhone can be done with your Apple Watch


For this to work, you do not need the ‘Find my iPhone’ to be enabled in the iCloud settings.

In case you have an Apple Watch, then you will notice an iPhone ping feature built in.

Firstly, the Control Center needs to be opened. You can do so by swiping up from the bottom of your Apple Watch.

Next, click on the ping iPhone icon that is built in the Apple Watch.

In case the battery of your iPhone is dead, then use the ‘Find my iPhone’ app to enable you to at least see the last location.

Finding your “silent” iPhone by using your iPad


In the case that your iPad is connected to the same Apple account, then you can click on the “Find my iPhone” option. Next click the “Play Sound” option. This will trigger your iPhone to send out alert signals which will enable you in finding your “silent” iPhone.

What to Do If Your iPhone is Lost or Stolen

What to Do If Your iPhone is Lost or Stolen
On the off side that your iPhone is lost or stolen Apple has some useful tools in place to ensure that who so ever’s hands your phone has landed in does not get into your private data. With these tools in place your iPhone becomes virtually unusable to whoever had the bad luck of taking your phone.

Using find My iPhone you can locate lost iPhones, disable them and in some cases even fully disable them. You may already know all this but unless you’ve ever had need for this tool, you probably don’t know how all this works. This is where we come in to help you with just that- what to do if your iPhone is lost or stolen? What is the information that thener- good doer has at their disposal and how Apple’s tools can help you?

Things to do before you go and Lose your iPhone: 


No one expects to go and lose their iPhone but on the small chance that you do, you don’t want anyone getting into your private data. So this is the first step in the eventuality that you lose your iPhone. To desist others from taking someone’s iPhone Apple came up with Activation Lock back with iOS 7. An iPhone basically becomes useless without a person’s Apple ID or password. This means that when anyone takes your phone, the phone will become useless as that iPhone will be tied in with your Apple ID and password. That person won’t be able to add any other account too.

To turn on Activation Lock all you have to do is ensure that Find My iPhone is activated. Normally on setting up new devices, Find My iPhone is on by default which means that the Activation Lock is on as well. You can still make sure Activation Lock is turned on by following the steps. Go on to Settings and then the iCloud option over there. Press the Find My iPhone option. While on the same screen “Send Last Location” should be on as well. This part allows your iPhone to send it’s last location to Apple in cases when it’s stolen.

What Other Things you can do with this Apple Tool: 


Besides locking your iPhone to an Apple ID so that it becomes useless to anyone else, you can also do many other things with it as well. You can use Apple’s Find My iPhone to locate your iPhone when it’s lost, that you may already know, but besides this you can remotely delete all your data from your lost or stolen iPhone and also put your iPhone into “lock mode”. You can do all this remotely without being anywhere near your iPhone.

Find My iPhone is undoubtedly a very good security tool but having other security options can be of help too. By having a passcode, no one can access your data stored on your iPhone and with a two factor authentication, your Apple ID will be safer from hacking attempts. This will be the first thing a thief may try to do as soon as they realize that they’ve got a locked phone. Two factor verification will require a code to be entered before you can enter your Apple ID or enter your iCloud account.

What to do when you iPhone is Lost or Stolen? 


We’ve covered the dos before your iPhone gets stolen. Now what should you do when your iPhone is lost or stolen. The first step to do when you lose your iPhone is to log into Find my iPhone from your iCloud account. If your iPhone has power and is connected to a Wi-Fi or a cellular network then it’s precise location will be known to you. It will appear on a map.

On the chance that your iPhone is out of juice or is not connected to Wi-Fi or a cellular network then its last known location will be sent to you. This information will be available for 24 hours and then only when connectivity is restored back to your iPhone.

Activate Lost Mode on Find My iPhone: 


You can also use Find My iPhone to activate Lost Mode. This mode will lock down all functionality with the phone. Lost mode will only display a phone and a message on screen leaving everything inaccessible. This it does once activated.

Lost mode works even if you don’t have a passcode system setup. Here’s how you can set up Lost Mode. Go on to Find My iPhone through iCloud. While there go to All Devices and locate your iPhone and tap on it. You will get options to play a sound, erase the phone or enable lost mode. If your stolen iPhone has not been set up with a passcode then you’ll be prompted to add a Passcode.

After that you’ll be asked to enter a phone number that can be contacted or you can simply skip this step. On the next page you’ll be able to write a message that will be displayed on the screen offering a reward and other contact details. After that just press done and “Notify if Found” option. Now your iPhone can be used only with the passcode you just set or the passcode that was already there.

When lost mode is activated, your iPhone will display the phone number and message you set. It can be used to call the number set when connected to a Wi-Fi network or cellular data. The phone can be used to call emergency numbers as well.

If you’re worried about your debit cards and credit associated with Apple Pay then don’t be. With Lost Mode on, all those details and things will be disabled. With lost mode on the battery is set on low to extend its life and features on the iPhone are rendered useless.

If you want to erase all the data on your iPhone, use it only as a last resort as once you do it Find My iPhone will no longer work.

iPhone XR: New Colourful iPhone Opens for Pre-Order

iPhone XR: Why the cheapest iPhone Yet maybe Worth more the Wait

As you’ll must have heard, unless you’re living under a rock, Apple has recently released its new iPhone line up and while the iPhone XS and XS Max maybe be great phones all on their own, today we’ll be looking at the iPhone XR and why it maybe the one for you. If you’re in the house for an iPhone and have waited long and patiently for a new phone then the iPhone XS or the XS max could be the ones for you. But if you’re an old iPhone user or have used the iPhone X then these versions are just a small upgrade and you might want to wait for the better priced iPhone XR before you make a purchasing decision.

Looking at the Specs on the iPhone XR:

Apple has decided to put the same A12 bionic processor into all iPhone XR, XS(not for extra small) and XS max. This is the same as last year when Apple released its new lineup of phones that too had the same processor running on all of them.

The main difference is when it comes to Advance LTE which the iphone XR does not have, which is not really a big thing other than internet speeds will be a little lower than this year’s pricier models.

Let’s look at the camera on the iPhone XR: 


The camera is almost the same on the iPhone XR but has a few differences. There’s only one 12MP camera on the back of the iPhone much like what was on the iPhone 8. This means that you won’t get 2x the optical or digital zoom when you take a pic.

iPhone XR will have a different kind of portrait mode. In the normal portrait mode iPhones have dual
camera, one that blurs the background while the other sharpens the foreground. But with the advancements in Apple’s A12 bionic chip the iPhone XR will be able to take a picture in portrait mode with just one rear facing camera.

iPhone XR

Like this year’s Lineup: 


The Apple iPhone XR will have much of the same features that are present in the iPhone XS and XS Max, like dual sim and a glass backing. But unlike the iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR will be made from aluminum (I mean the non- glass parts) instead of steel.

The iPhone XR will not have 3D touch too. But don’t be too disappointed, the Apple iPhone XR will still have some haptic touch sensors, making it, not a total loss.

Battery Life on the Apple iPhone XR: 


The iPhone XR maybe worth it just for the battery if you know what I mean and if you don’t….Well the iPhone XR has 15 hours of internet usage and 16 hours of video playback which is the best we have seen in an iPhone to date.

Colors and price of the iPhone XR: 


You’ll get this iPhone with a lot more color options and this budget iPhone is supposed to retail for a starting price of $749.

Apple Hides iPhone X Plus Secrets In iOS 12

 iPhone X Plus

Apple to make a New iPhone X Plus Model

Yes you read right Apple plans on making a new iPhone X plus model that will be radically different from the previous iPhone X. But who am I kidding, any phone coming out these days has to be way different from their predecessors if you want people to latch on to them. The same goes for the Apple iPhone X plus. While Apple does enjoy a huge and loyal customer base, their new phones have to have the wow factor if Apple has to maintain its image in the market.

This new detail about iPhone X plus coming out is due to another leak by Apple. These days companies really need to get plumbing done. Most are suffering form various “leaks” and that to of the big variety. The first Apple leak concerned a major upgrade in iOS 12 beta and now it has to do something with Apple iPhone X plus.

What is the new leak about?


This new leak was discovered by a Brazilian site called iHelp,BR which reveals details of Apple’s new and gigantic iPhone X plus in iOS 12 beta version 5. This new iPhone X plus will have a huge 6.5 inch screen and will operate much like an iPad. This new bit of information will have significant implications for the iPhone X plus.

How did iHelp,BR discover this you say? Well the answer is simple enough through a hack of course.
What’s the Hack concerning iPhone X plus all about?

Previous leaks concerning the iPhone X plus ( Apple should really look into a good plumber), shows that the iPhone X plus will have a 2688 by 1242 pixel which is higher than what you’ve ever seen before with Apple iPhones.

So now coming closer to the point, iHelp,BR used Apple’s Xcode simulator to run this iOS 12 beta 5 on it at 2688 by 1242 resolution and the results were astounding. They found that by doing this, new secret landscape modes were unlocked. Besides this many new interfaces for core Apple iPhone apps too were visible.

Apple’s new landscape mode with iPhone X plus:


Up till now Apple has played with the idea of using landscape modes for apps such as Calendar as well as Contacts on the iPhone plus sized variations. But has never thought of doing it for the iPhone X 5.8 inch model.

Now Apple is pegging the iPhone X plus as a more productive phone than its predecessor pushing the iPhone X down to second best.

Apple’s budget friendly 6.1 inch iPhone X did not get this feature too. Apple is planning on using this feature exclusively for iPhone X plus along with giving it dual sim exclusivity as well. This may be because the company wants to move users from their earlier models on to the new and better iPhone X plus. Which is also more expensive too.

The good news relating to iPhone X plus:


To make your decision to buy the iPhone X plus even easier, Apple has decided to slash prices of their phones this year.

How to Use Emergency SOS on Your iPhone

SOS on Your iPhone

Using Emergency SOS on Your iPhone

Apple released emergency SOS last year with iOS 11, this really helpful feature allows you get in touch with 911 services or the like (depending on your country of residence) in a matter of seconds. Even when you’re travelling abroad things like the emergency numbers may not be readily known by you and in such an emergency situation knowing what the emergency number is, can be invaluable.

The emergency SOS mode varies on the iPhone you’re using but essentially you’ll be able to place the call within a matter of seconds no matter the model of phone you have.

Getting to emergency SOS on the iPhone:

If you’re tagging along your iPhone 8, 8 plus or the X, then to get to the emergency SOS feature all you have to do is hold down on the side button and one of the volume buttons to activate the emergency caller on the phone.

In about 2 seconds, you’ll see the caller and all you have to do is slide the slider to dial emergency services. Another option would be to continually hold down on both buttons till a countdown of 5 seconds begins and the emergency SOS service is dialed automatically.

As for iPhone 7 models to access emergency SOS all you have to do is rapidly press the side button 5 times to get to the emergency slider.

Depending on your country of residence you get to see multiple options some for hospitals, police or the fire station. For iPhone 8 users and later getting to the same emergency SOS mode as that of iPhone 7 is a simple change of settings.

All you have to do to get the same emergency mode as that of iPhone 7 is to go to settings and then press on emergency SOS to turn on the side button switch. Besides that you may also want to switch on the automatic dial button to call emergency services directly without the slider button.

Once this is done you’ll get a 3 second countdown, after 5 times pressing the side button, before emergency services are called. To cancel emergency services just press the cancel button before the countdown is over.

Using Emergency contacts with the Emergency SOS mode:

Your emergency contacts will be automatically notified when the emergency SOS mode is used. Your contacts will automatically get your location as well as updates to it. You can set up your emergency contacts by going to the Health app and tapping Medical ID to go through the set up process.

By also inputting your medical details, medical personal can access these details without the need of unlocking your phone.

When using your emergency services a valuable point to note is that face ID and Touch ID will be automatically disabled so as to prevent people from forcing you to open your phone with your finger or face. People have found it more difficult to access Passcodes from a user rather than forcing them to unlock their phones with their face or finger.

Top 10 Features of iOS 12 That Give iPhones an Edge over Android

Android P

Why iOS 12 May be better than Android P?

Apple recently announced the release of iOS 12 at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2018. With Google’s Andriod P set to be released somewhere in this year and with Apple’s iOS 12 coming out at the same time, it is going to be a tough competition for both companies. But at present Apple seems to be ruling the roost. At the recent conference Apple said that while Google’s latest update was enjoyed by only a few namely 6% of android devices, Apple’s latest iOS 11 is being used by 81% of their users.

With both android P and iOS 12 coming out with a slew of features, it will be interesting to see which company comes out on the top. Looking at the features Apple’s iOS 12 will bring, it seems that Google better pull up their socks soon or we may see more users shifting over to Apple.

Siri just got Smarter:


With iOS 12 users can now use Siri with third party apps without the need for actually opening up those apps to use the voice assistant. Apple users can even use Siri to trigger different actions or a single command can be used for multiple actions. As for Google assistant, users cannot use the assistant for giving commands to third party apps.

No Tracking with Apple’s Browser:


Apple’s Safari browser has smart tracking prevention that basically prevents people from tracking users based on their “likes”, “shares” and “comments” on social media. While on the other hand Google has no way of stopping cookies from tracking a user’s browsing habits.

iOS 12 has graduated to memojis:


With iOS 12 users get to play with memojis while Google is still stuck with animojis in Android P. Android is dependent on individual OEMs to power their emojis.

FaceTiming with a lot more people on iOS 12:


With iOS 12 users will get a major update to their FaceTime app. You will be able to chat with 32 people at a time using FaceTime and the app will also automatically detect the person who is talking and highlight their face in such a big group.

iOS to reach even older iPhones:


iOS 12 will supposedly reach even older iPhone models starting from iPhone 5S while Google’s Android P will be usable with only newer android phones.

Measure real life objects with iOS 12:


Apple’s iOS 12 will allow you to measure real life objects using the iPhone’s camera and AR technology. Google teases about a lot of AR in Android P but there are no real life cases in which the tech can be applied as of now.

iOS 12 brings you multiplayer AR games:


With iOS 12 more than one person and up to 4 persons can play AR games while Google’s Android P lacks any multiplayer AR games.

Already there QR scanner with iOS 12:


iOS 12 comes with an already there QR scanner while with Android P users will have to download the scanner from third party apps.

Next-gen Apple iPhone Chips Reportedly Already in Production

Apple Production for New 7 Nano Meter Chips already begun!

With the smartphone market remaining stagnant, Apple has beaten all odds and has not only remained on top but also has grown it’s market share. Now to continue in the same light, the Cupertino based company has already begun production for the new iPhone chips. These 7 nanometer chips are all set to increase efficiency of the new iPhones and increase the time between charges. These new chips will find a place in Apple’s new iPhones coming out later this year.

But Apple may get some tough competition this year from Samsung as they too have plans for their own 7 nanometer chip. This new Apple iPhone chip apparently goes by the name A12.

Difference between the current iPhone chips and the new ones: 


Current chips in iPhones are of the 10 nanometer variety and the new ones will be 7 nanometers. The new iPhone chip is said to make the new iPhones a lot faster and is seemingly going to be much more efficient than those in current iPhone models.

Another report also states that these new iPhone chips could help run apps faster and make the iPhone go longer without a full charge.

Current trend in the smartphone market: 


These new iPhone chips will give Apple an edge in a market that is going stagnant. With the same trends, features seen in all smartphones these days and a lack of hardware upgrades all have made the smartphone market stagnant. In addition to all these factors people are also not changing their phones often too and why would they when they have a perfectly functioning expensive mobile already?

Apple has managed to remain above the rest even with the market cooling off. In the first quarter of this year Apple has managed to increase it’s market share while the rest of the industry experienced fewer shipments in this declining market. Apple seems to have hopes that they will be able to continue with this trend with their new iPhone chips.

Apple is not alone in the chip making faze: 


Recently Samsung too came up with plans for making their own 7 nanometer chips by employing extreme ultra violet lithography- a process which is used to etch smaller features onto the smartphone chips.

It is unsure as of now what features the intended Samsung 7 nanometer chip will have. But if commonsense prevails then we can expect the same faster processing and longer usage of smartphones before going in for charging. Apart from these basics, who knows what else Samsung has got up it’s sleeve?

Apple manufacturing partnering up with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. has already begun mass producing the said iPhone chips. These new iPhone chips will be seen in Apple’s new trio of iPhones coming out later this year. Now we have to wait and see whether Apple will be able to convince Samsung’s users over to their side or not? After all Samsung is not too far back in coming out with their own new 7 nanometer chip.

Apple Loop: New iPhone Details Leaked

New iPhone, The Latest with Apple

Recently the Cupertino Company has a lot going on for it with a new screen for a new iPhone coming out later this year, the bugs found in Face Time, a reminiscence of the iMac journey and why people find the iPhone X better than the 8 Plus. Apple has even a set of drones on their work agenda. While Apple has a lot on it’s plate right now and undoubtedly more in the future, we will take a further a look into Apple happenings in the last week or so.

A 2018 iPhone with a new screen?


Apple’s flagship iPhones all have an OLED screen, but Apple plans on bringing out an iPhone in the coming months with a LED screen. This phone will follow in the footsteps of the iPhone 8 Plus and is rumored to target the $700- $800 range, hence the cheaper LCD.

The design on this supposed new iPhone will be based on the iPhone X and will probably have a 6 inch or 6.1 inch screen as well as with the new LCD screen. This new form of LCD will have been developed by LG and there is proof to support this fact too- a supply chain report bearing such information gives credit to the idea that Apple has a new LCD screen iPhone in the pipeline.

This new iPhone with the look of the previous iPhone X model will have a near all bezel free- screen and a new screen with new tech. The tech behind the screen is this – while normal LCD screens have red, green and blue sub- pixels, the new form of LCD known as M+ has an extra sub- bezel which is white, this white sub- bezel gives off more brightness than the other sub- bezels.

Face Time issues with the iPhone:


While Apple plans on making a new iPhone, current iPhones running on iOS 11.3 and 11.3.1 are going through a rough patch, to be more specific a microphone related rough patch. In news recently Apple said that any user experiencing such an issue, may have to do with a grayed out speaker button while they take phone calls. This issue may also be while Face Timing too.

Apple has informed service providers to run audio diagnostics and iPhones having the problem will show up as “device could not detect dock” and then the service providers are asked to initiate a repair of the iPhone. While many of the previous iPhone issues were handled with a new iOS update the current issue requires manual repairs.

Apple Eyes Drones as 6.5-Inch iPhone Comes Into Focus

iPhonesIn the News Recently: All Things Apple!

We aren’t talking about the fruit either. The tech giant has something or things up their sleeve which makes us question what they are really up to. One thing that made rumor mills churning on overtime this time around was news that Apple may make it’s own drones in the future. Yes they have moved from iPhones to drones. But while we are talking about iPhones, we also have to state that Apple is also planning on making a massive 6.5 inch iPhone tagged the iPhone X Plus.

Besides this massive screen iPhone, Apple is also planning on coming out with two other iPhones this year. If the drone thing and the 6.5 Inch screen iPhone isn’t enough to peak your interest then we have also learnt that Apple may be making it’s own credit cards with Goldman Sachs. Now let’s delve more into what Apple has planned for us in the coming months.

The iPhone with the 6.5 inch screen:


The new iPhone may be called iPhone X Plus. This huge 6.5 inch screen will have all the features of the iPhone X with added screen space. The screen will cover most of the overall phone’s face.

Apple in a Drone Program by the US Government:


Apart from many big names and transportation companies, Apple will also be participating in the US drone program. This Drone program will open up the doors to companies to test drone flights over people which is currently not allowed. This program will allow companies to test fly drones over a higher altitude than what is currently allowed. Amazon, Boeing and Intel are some of the other big wigs that will be participating in the program. While all these companies have drone programs in place, Apple hasn’t made formal any of their drone programs.

New iPhone X if yours isn’t working properly?


iPhone Xs with a face detection problem, previously used to have Apple change the screens of these devices but now the tech giant has reportedly changed it’s policy so that any devices having the problem will be swapped out with a new iPhone X.

New credit card by Apple?

Apple is planning on bringing out a new credit card called Apple Pay. The company is doing this in partnership with Goldman Sachs. The apparent motive behind this is to increase presence in consumer banking for Goldman Sachs.

Apple to reduce it’s environmental impact:


Apple is partnering up with aluminum manufacturers Alcoa and Rio Tinto to smelt aluminum in a way that would reduce green- house gas emissions and therefore help the environment. This new method would not only reduce Apple’s impact on the environment but also usher in a new way of producing the metal to be used in products of all kinds.

Apple to start new video service subscriptions:


Apple will be starting a new video service subscription through its Apple TV. This service will apparently allow subscribers to select a network or on the demand- channels through Apple TV.

Leaked iPhone Pics Show Glass Back and Headphone Jack

iPhone

New iPhone to have Glass Back and Headphone Jack?

Apple launched the first iPhone SE back in March 2016 and now there are talks that a new iPhone is in the pipelines, this time around with a glass backing and a headphone jack. Seems Apple has not done away with headphone jacks completely and why would they? This phone is pegged as a budget iPhone, if there ever was such a thing. Recent prowling of the net shows that there are iPhone Pics out there, of the leaked variety, that has a glass back and a headphone jack.

These designs seem to be taking cue from iPhone 5 and let’s just say that we are really liking what we see. What’s more with the new iPhone is that it supports wireless charging too, just like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X models, putting it in line with Apple’s flagship offerings. Now I’m really liking what I see.

The Supposed new iPhone SE 2 Design:

There have long since been rumors that Apple is working on another updated iPhone SE smartphone. The first SE iPhone was released back in 2016 with a newer version released the next year with updated specs of course.

SE iPhone’s are the cheapest iPhones that Apple has to offer, with a 4 inch screen.

Recently pictures were released of an Apple iPhone with a glass backing and a headphone jack( oh! How we missed you) that is presumably got to do with iPhone SE 2.

Any talks of the new iPhone SE phone? 


WWDC to be held in June maybe the first time Apple may mention a new iPhone SE in the works. On the birthday of the SE iPhone recently, Apple held an event that to launch an education based iPad in Chicago.

Apple may have pushed news of the new SE iPhone to WWDC to be held in June, to make room for the new iPad and so as to not take away focus from the educational iPad.

At least the headphone jack is there in the new SE iPhone: 


While Apple removed its headphone jack from their flagship phones, it has thought to retain the jack in the iPhone SE 2.

This supposed low cost iPhone is meant for growing markets and therefore it make sense that Apple would want to retain the headphone jack. Not everyone can afford the wireless Apple earbuds to go along with their iPhones.

The iPhones SE are phones that are meant to serve an audience that can manage on the small screen and miss the headphone jacks.

These new pics surely have stirred up interest among the tech gurus out there and not only them but a whole lot of others as well. There is a debate going on the net whether the iPhone SE 2 will retain its headphone jack or not. There are also talks that the new iPhone SE will come with an upgraded camera and new hardware. Well at least for now it is a waiting game for the new iPhone SE.

iOS Could Detect When You Hover Your Finger Over The Screen

iphone

iOS will know when you are hovering the finger upon the screen

Apple has brought the latest update to its iOS with much fan fare as it aimed towards enhancing the battery management along with slew of other tweaks. A report has emerged from the Apple offices that it has been actively working on adding new gesture controls for the iPhones. Apart from the range of normal touch gestures controls present on the iPhone now iOS will be to detect whether the users hovering the finger on the screen in order to trigger certain actions.

It is worth remembering that at the time of the launch of very first iPhone Jobs has remarkably spent quite a lot of time in showcasing the might of the multi-touch interface to the users. Touching screen by adding different level of pressure results in triggering different tasks and similarly swiping on either side of screen helps in getting different job done while the use of multiple finger in order to zoom in the photo or rotate were first seen implemented on the iPhone.

Changing the way people are interacting with their mobile screens


Apple has been a pioneer when it comes to bringing better controls and screen related functionalities to the core user experience. It is worth noting that Apple brought the famous 3D Touch gesture controls with the launch of the iPhone 6S. This features allowed users to triggers different by apply varying amount of pressure on their phone's screen. It allowed users to preview a photo or simply open an email or open the shortcut menu and much more.

These can seem like some simple touch screen enhancement performed by the Apple in the recent since the launch of the iPhone X which brought whole new range of gesture control never seen before on any smartphone. Apple also made a bold move to get rid of the staple home button which eventually made it necessary to offer advanced gesture based control for sublime user experience.

Next iPhone will be better than the before


With next generation iPhone this year Apple will bring the ability to detect the gestures right from above the screen. However there are no documents revealed by the Apple which points towards how it will be achieved on the next iPhones and some has even pointed out that features might not even debut in this year’s iPhone altogether. It has also been brought to the attention that Apple is also actively experimenting with the curved display for its upcoming iPhones.

Rather than being like the Samsung Galaxy premium devices Apple more likely want the iPhone to appear like a banana shape from top to the bottom. A number of rumors have suggested that Apple will be launching three new iPhone devices like the previous year. One of these devices will be next version of the trendsetter iPhone X followed by another iPhone X lookalike iPhone having a cheaper display while another one will be larger iPhone X for those who need larger display.

How to Turn Off iPhone Throttling in iOS 11.3

iPhone throttling
iPhone Throttling: iOS 11.3 will allow to accelerate or decelerate old iPhones voluntarily

A little more than a month ago, Apple recognized that it slows down the iPhone through software updates (iphone throttling), a situation that has generated several headaches for the company and that has even caused several complaints from disgruntled customers. Following this, Apple decided facilitate its users by voluntarily turn off iphone throttling. It sent an iOS update to accelerate the processors of old iPhones with degraded batteries, but to leave the issue in the hands of the users themselves, the company confirmed last week that it will launch an iOS update which let's choose whether or not they want to slow down their iPhones in favor of greater security.

Most of the iphone users were forlorn with the disclosure, furthermore Apple react by reducing the cost of an iPhone battery replacement from $79 to $29 along with vowing to provide users the facility to turn off the iphone throttling. That knack has currently available here in adaptations of iOS 11.3 rolling out; it be supposed to come to open beta testers contained by some few days, as well as it will to be expected be accessible in a concluding release contained by the coming weeks — at whatever time it does pull in on your phone, here is how to bring into play the iPhone throttling manually.

Initially, the users will require to be administrating iPhone throttling — that, by this position, have need of a quantity of waiting as well as a small number of additional steps. Apple has not alleged while the absolute adaptation will be released, however any person can roll their gadget to take delivery of beta erect of the software. The battery administration attributes were only appended in the second beta edition, so users will call for to keep informed yet if they downloaded the foremost iOS 11.3 beta the previous month.

Although it was not certain when this option would come, today the company has announced that iOS 11.3 is the version of firmware that will add a switch to perform iphone throttling i.e., to disable processor acceleration and reduce performance decelerated in old iPhones with naturally degraded batteries. According to the company, the controversial feature was added to prevent the old iPhones from being accidentally turned off when the processor was under heavy load, which caused a peak of energy that the battery could not handle.

To do this, Apple accelerated the processor on those devices with the idea of making sure there was not a peak of power large enough so that the battery could not handle it. This hinted that Apple was reducing the performance of older iPhones to force users to buy newer models, so Apple has had to apologize.

Returning to the theme of iOS 11.3, Apple said that this next update will provide the possibility of opting not to receive this functionality when the software update that will arrive in the spring is released. Once users install the update, they can see if the power management feature that dynamically manages maximum performance to avoid unexpected stops is turned on and you can choose to turn iphone throttling off.

Why iPhone Night Shift Mode is Big Deal

Night Shift Mode

Night Shift Mode in iPhone and how it could improve Your sleep

We sometimes or maybe always use our phones before we sleep, although we have tried hard to kick the habit. This so called habit of ours leads to us getting very bad sleep. Our phone screens emit a light known as blue light that helps us see the screen in bright sunlight. This feature seems to work in the night also. Blue light has a way of affecting our melatonin production which causes us to get very bad sleep in the night. iPhone’s night shift mode hopes to change all that.

The blue light that phones emit in the night causes our brain to get mixed signals and that is when our melatonin production is affected. Melatonin is a hormone that gives our body sleep cues. Without it, we have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep leading to a host of health problems. With iOS 9.3’s night shift mode the blue light on the iPhone screen is toned down.

How Blue Light Affects the Brain and how night shift mode helps us? 


Blue light basically affects an individual’s melatonin production that makes it difficult to not only get sleep but also to stay asleep. But the blue light on our screens can harm us in other ways too. By not getting proper sleep your neurotoxin levels are affected and this in turn will make it even harder for a person to fall asleep.

Not getting a good night’s rest will affect your memory in the long run and make it harder to remember things too. The blue light in our phones, by affecting melatonin production, also takes a toll on our mental health. Besides being fatigued, low melatonin levels increase the chances of depression.

Causing disruption to melatonin levels will in fact affect other hormones too such as those that control hunger causing associated problems like obesity. The other problems that can result from the harmful blue light could be cataract, cancer and could also affect the retina in a person’s eye.

iPhone users that can’t use F.lux, a feature that allows you to tone down blue light levels when needed, don’t need toworry. With iOS 9.3, users get something that is known as night shift mode. With night shift mode a user can control the blue light setting on your iPhone. Night shift mode allows you to set a timing when your phone will start dimming the blue light emitting from the phone.

The screen becomes warmer as the blue light is dimmed by the night shift mode on the phone. Many users who updated to iOS 9.3 feel their eyes less stressed with the night shift mode. Although how much the night shift mode is going to help a person sleep when they have other sleep related problems is anyone’s guess.

Anxiety, stress related issues and other problems from using a phone at night all can affect an individual’s sleep pattern, this makes it difficult to see whether the night shift mode is effective or not.
