• IPhone X fast charges up to 50% in just 30 minutes, but that costs extra

    11 days ago - By Tech Radar

    IPhone X , iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are now official, and you may be pleased to know Apple's latest creations support fast charging. This means you can get up to 50% power after 30 minutes on the cable, as 9to5Mac uncovered, if your battery is completely drained from the start. However, there is a sizeable caveat to taking advantage of fast charging: Your phone needs to be connected via USB-C. Though wireless charging is one of the key features of the new iPhone models, it won't support fast charging. Here's the kicker: Apple doesn't include the necessary accessories for fast charging...

  • Opinion: Apple's take on the ‘bezel-less' UI is unintuitive, and Android is far better suited for it

    Opinion: Apple's take on the ‘bezel-less' UI is unintuitive, and Android is far better suited for it

    11 days ago - By 9to5Google

    Yesterday Apple announced its latest crop of products , and as has been rumored for quite a while, that included the debut of the iPhone X . The X is the biggest step forward in iPhone design in a long time, but it certainly comes with its fair share of compromises.
    One of those is the lack of a fingerprint sensor which, speaking truthfully, is already an absolute deal breaker for me. But there's also a new way of navigating the phone - mostly through gestures. So far, I think that this may actually end up being the more infuriating move, especially considering what we've seen on Android...

    A11 Bionic Chip in iPhone 8 and iPhone X on Par With 13-Inch MacBook Pro, Outperforms iPad Pro

    11 days ago - By Mac Rumors

    The iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X are equipped with a six-core A11 chip, which Apple says brings some major improvements over the A10 chip in the iPhone 7. The chip features two performance cores and four efficiency cores.
    Early Geekbench scores for iPhone X and iPhone 8 devices suggest that not only does the new A11 significantly outperform the A10, it beats the A10X Fusion in the iPad Pro and it is on par with the chips in Apple's latest 13-inch MacBook Pro models.
    In 12 Geekbench scans, the A11 chip saw an average single-core score of 4169, and an average multi-core score of 9836. Some...

    Still Not Much is Known About the AirPods Wireless Charging Case

    11 days ago - By App Advice

    While Apple announced an AirPods wireless charging case along with the upcoming AirPower wireless charging mat during yesterday's iPhone X event, information about the product is very scarce.
    AppleInsider was able to take a look at the case after yesterday's event:
    AppleInsider staff examined both following the release event. The AirPods Wireless Charging case is functionally identical to the one that comes with the AirPods now, but with the green charging light on the exterior of the case instead of under the lid. The existing AirPods case has exposed metal on the back - which appears to...

    Analyst says Apple revenue will suffer in fiscal Q4 and rebound the next quarter

    11 days ago - By Phone Arena

    While some analysts see the delay in the launch of the Apple iPhone X helping to generate quick sales for the Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus, not all agree. Daniel Gleason, the senior analyst at Ovum, said that there are two types of iPhone buyers. Those who have to have the latest phone will be put off by the November 3rd launch date for the tenth anniversary model. Those who would be satisfied with the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus won't be rushing to pick up either model right away. As a result, Gleason expects those belonging to the latter group, waiting to check out the iPhone X...

  • The LG V30 is the best iPhone X competitor

    Specs aren't important to Apple and iPhone users. The experience of using the phone is what matters. That's why I think the LG V30 is the best Android comparison to the iPhone X.

    Opinion: 5.8-inch display in a smaller footprint makes iPhone X an obvious choice

    11 days ago - By 9to5Mac

    When comparing Apple's new iPhones side-by-side, the biggest difference that calls out to me is that beautiful iPhone X display. The bezel-less device fully immerses you in content, and compared to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus' bezels, it seems otherworldly.
    I don't know why I'd go for any other iPhone. By shrinking those bezels down, the iPhone X gains a significant display size increase, while remaining smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus. Outside of price, I can't find a reason why I wouldn't go for the iPhone X.

    Apple's New Face ID Biometric System Works in the Dark and When Your Face is Obscured by Hats and Beards

    11 days ago - By Mac Rumors

    In the new iPhone X, Face ID, a facial recognition system, replaces the Touch ID fingerprint sensor we've grown accustomed to since it was introduced in the iPhone 5s.
    Because Face ID is a new biometric system, there are a lot of questions about its accuracy and how it will work in various conditions, all of which Apple has answered both in the keynote and on its website.
    How Face ID Scans Your Face
    Face ID is enabled through a TrueDepth front-facing camera on the iPhone X, which has multiple components. A Dot Projector projects more than 30,000 invisible dots onto your face to map its...

    During and after yesterday's Apple's announcement of its FaceID unlocking feature for its new iPhone X, some brief discourse began on the Ars staff Slack channel concerning legal rights when your face is your new passcode. It's a big deal, as this is the future of smartphone unlocking-largely because Apple says so.
    "This is the future of how we'll unlock our smartphones and protect our sensitive information," Apple VP Phil Schiller said.
    So let's start off with one fear an Ars colleague brought up. He suggested that the cops could take your phone and hold it up to your face to...

    Top 5 most disruptive smartphones in the last 10 years

    Being evolutionary is one thing, but being revolutionary is another. After yesterday's big iPhone unveiling, there are already murmurs about where the iPhone X stands in Apple's long storied history. Several new changes are prevalent in the iPhone X, but the more we began to absorb all of the information that came out of its event, the more we question ourselves as to whether or not it's the revolutionary, landmark smartphone that'll set the bar for the next decade to come.
    Ten long years have passed since the original iPhone came roaring onto the scene, ushering ...

    No more iPhone app browsing in iTunes on Mac makes me sad

    11 days ago - By iMore

    Apple has removed the iOS App Store from iTunes on Mac. It's nice that it's more organized, but I loved browsing for apps on my Mac!
    Some might call me an app junky, an appaholik if you will. I love browsing and downloading apps just to check them out. If they're awesome, they stay on my iPhone or iPad. If they don't keep my interest for more than a month, I might move on. It's like record shopping, but for apps.
    Almost every day, I spend some time in the App Store in iTunes on my Mac, just browsing what's new and what's hot. I'm window shopping... looking for something that piques my...

According to the iPhone X page of Apple's website that highlights the new feature, "Selfie Scenes" will place users in 360° virtual surroundings that range from "beautifully animated landscapes" to art pieces to movie sets.
