You may have noticed that the new batch of iPhones Apple recently announced do not embrace 5G connectivity, even though wireless carriers can't stop talking it. Apple is going to wait at least one more generation. That doesn't mean the new iPhone models don't deliver a bump in wireless performance. They do, as evidenced by results collected by SpeedSmart. SpeedSmart posted the results to Twitter and they show impressive speed gains from the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, compared to the previous generation iPhone X. Faster uploads and especially faster downloads can be seen across AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. For whatever reason, Sprint is curiously missing from the roundup. In any event, here's... Read more...
Reviews for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are filtering on to the internet this morning, and Apple CEO Tim Cook is out touting his company’s new flagship smartphones. However, the new phones come at a hefty price – especially with regards to the bigger of the two smartphones. Apple first danced with a $1,000 smartphone with last year’s iPhone X, and the iPhone XS Max takes that trend and runs with it. Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max Cook went on Good Morning America to talk about Apple and its new wave of products (including the Apple Watch Series 4), and the topic of pricing was brought to the forefront. “We want to make an iPhone for everyone....

Yesterday, Apple officially announced its A12 Bionic SoC, which is a 7nm chip built by TSMC. The processor powers the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR. At the time, Apple didn’t provide much with regards to the A12 Bionic's hard numbers or specs other than to say that it has a 6-core CPU (with two high-performance cores that are 15 percent faster than the 10nm A11 Bionic) and a 4-core GPU (which is up to 50 percent faster compared to the outgoing chip). The A12 Bionic is also said to use 50 percent less power than its predecessor. However, we’re now getting more detailed metrics about the A12 Bionic thanks to a Geekbench listing that popped up this week, which... Read more...
Although much of the event was spoiled by leaks, Apple today announced three new iPhones ranging in size from 5.8 inches to 6.5 inches. Apple says that these are the most advanced iPhones that they have ever created, which is something that the company says every year. Starting with iPhone XS, it is a year-over-year upgrade to the iPhone X, so it retains the 5.8-inch OLED display (2436x1125, 458ppi), Face ID (now with faster respond times) and dual rear cameras. The iPhone XS is IP68 rated, and the display now features better dynamic range, and there is improved stereo sound compared to last year. Powering the smartphone is a new 7nm Apple A12 Bionic processor (6.9 billion transistors)... Read more...
Apple is a creature of habit, and those old habits have pretty much spoiled the launch of the upcoming next-generation iPhone and Apple Watch. Thanks to some rather amateurish mistakes on Apple’s part, product names, specifications, and colors for the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr and Apple Watch Series 4 were pulled from a product sitemap XML file. Starting off with the next-generation iPhones, we now know that the 6.1-inch LCD model is called the iPhone Xr. The aluminum-bodied iPhone Xr shares the same design aesthetic as last year’s iPhone X and will in effect replace both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. It will be available in three capacities -- 64GB, 128GB and... Read more...
Tomorrow will mark Apple's biggest launch of the year; the time when it will announce new iPhones alongside a fourth-generation Apple Watch and new iPad Pros (and perhaps a few extras). There's an added bonus with this year's event though; Apple will stream it for the first time via Twitter. Apple has traditionally limited viewing to iOS and macOS devices running Safari, but eventually opened it up to desktop PC users running Windows 10 with Microsoft Edge. More recently, Apple extended live-streaming to those using Chrome and Firefox at this year's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Join us September 12 at 10 a.m. PDT to watch the #AppleEvent live on Twitter. Tap ❤️ below and... Read more...
Apple's 2018 lineup of iPhones is going to be unveiled one week from today, which means that the last round of rumors is starting to meander onto the internet. Today, we have two fresh "leaks" to report on including rumored pricing and the name for the largest iPhone to ever be released. But first, let's talk about that 6.5-inch OLED iPhone. We heard last week that the new 5.8-inch OLED phone will be called the iPhone Xs. According to 9to5Mac, which brought us the first "official" render of the smartphone along with the iPhone Xs naming, says that the 6.5-inch OLED device will be called the iPhone Xs Max. Besides the fact that the name just looks and sounds awkward, it is... Read more...
Apple is always worried about its suppliers leaking images and parts for its upcoming products, but in recent years, many of the most critical leaks have come from within. We saw this last year when nearly every detail/feature concerning the 2017 iPhone X were spoiled by a HomePod firmware leak. This time around, we're getting our first look at the premium OLED-equipped iPhones that will launch this year. 9to5Mac says that these images/renders are not mockups, and are straight from Apple. And according to the publication, both models will be called the iPhone XS. It appears that Apple is dropping the "+" designation and will just distinguish between the two by their screen size...
