Leading up to the launch of the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, there were widespread reports that the phones would include two-way wireless charging. However, the feature was never mentioned during their public debut on September 10th. Today, Apple watcher Sonny Dickson confirmed suspicions that hardware to enable two-way or bilateral charging is indeed still embedded in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro smartphones. However, it has been disabled by software for some unknown reason.  On the eve of the iPhone 11 launch, respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated that the feature had been canceled. Given that this revelation came so close to the official launch, it would be seemingly impossible... Read more...
Apple apparently has a bit of work to do before it rolls out iOS 13 to the public later this month. The beta release has been available for quite some time now, and a security researcher has discovered a vulnerability on iOS 13 that could potentially expose a user's entire contact information, without ever having to get past the lockscreen. Jose Rodriguez discovered the flaw earlier this summer. According to his YouTube video demonstrating the sneaky lockscreen bypass (yes, another one), he notified Apple of the issue on July 17, though it is not clear if Apple acknowledged the bug to him. Here's a look at the flaw in action... It is a rather simple hack—in the video above, Rodriguez activates... Read more...
Apple is a company that is overly obsessed with making its devices thinner and lighter from one generation to the next. While having a thin device is no doubt nice, there are diminishing returns when it comes time to boost battery life -- something that all users can appreciate. Apple is reversing course with its iPhone 11 Pro family – which was announced yesterday -- and we're actually seeing some pretty substantial gains in battery life compared to iPhone XS family. When Apple launched the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in 2018, it said that battery life had improved by 30 minutes over the iPhone X for the former, and by one hour and 30 minutes for the latter.  In the case...

Apple had its big keynote address for this year, and the highly anticipated iPhone 11 family has been revealed. As expected, there are three new models that have been announced, which are successors for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max respectively. Meet the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Let's start off with the iPhone 11, which is the least inexpensive of the bunch. It features a 6.1-inch LCD (like its predecessor) along with a revised (and faster) version of Face ID. The screen resolution remains the same (1792x868), but Apple has made some slight modifications to the panel to make improve colors and overall performance. Inside, Apple is using a new A13 Bionic SoC,... Read more...
In addition to being a useful benchmark for processors of all kind (desktop, laptop, phones, tablets), Geekbench is also the go-to place for leaked data, as we have seen time and again. As it pertains to that, a fresh leak points to an unreleased Apple iPhone model. The data suggests it is a successor to the iPhone XR, and if the listing is accurate, we can expect a bump in RAM. The model is listed as "iPhone12,1" running iOS 13.1, with "N104AP" listed as the motherboard. That latter identifier is in line with previous rumors suggesting the iPhone XR successor (part of the iPhone 11 series) is going by the codename N104. What's interesting about the database entry is the amount of RAM—it... Read more...
It looks as though the rampant speculation was accurate; Apple will hold its next hardware keynote address on September 10th. Apple likely has a full plate of announcements lined up on that date, with the headlining devices being the 2019 family of iPhones. Although it's unlikely that many would consider Apple to be at the forefront of innovation in smartphones these days, the invite proudly announces "By innovation only". With that said, there will be at least three iPhone models announced at the event with assumed iPhone 11 branding. These smartphones will in essence replace the current iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. There is also speculation that the two flagship models might be called iPhone... Read more...
When it comes to Apple's 2019 iPhone family, we know quite a bit about the smartphones already, especially with respect to their designs. From the front, the smartphones are expected to look nearly identical to their 2018 counterparts, but out back, they're expected to add an additional camera inside a square housing. According to the latest rumors coming from the Japanese blog Mac Otakara, Apple will be using the same -- or at least visually similar -- square camera pod on the 2019 iPad Pro family. Even more dramatically, it's said that the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models will now have three cameras, putting them on par with the 2019 iPhone Pro. This is a big upgrade considering...

If you were expecting a revolutionary design update for the 2019 family of iPhones, you're going to be woefully disappointed. As widely expected, this year's iPhone refresh will look much like the 2018 iPhones, which looked nearly identical to the 2017 iPhone X. The iPhone 11 family -- as it's being called for now -- is most easily differentiated [externally] from its predecessors by a square camera pod on the rear. On the XS and XS Max successors, that means a third, wide-angle camera joints the party. 9to5Mac expands upon this information, however, indicated that the wide-angle camera will support a new feature called Smart Frame.  The publication notes that Smart Frame...
