    Apple addressing extreme iPhone XS front camera skin smoothing in iOS 12.1 update

    27 days ago - By 9to5Mac

    The iPhone XR embargoes have just lifted and everyone is giving their thoughts on the new mainstream iPhone. The front camera and rear wide angle camera in the XR and XS are identical, so have the same upsides and downsides when it comes to Apple's computational photographing.
    The Verge had an interesting tidbit : Apple is adjusting the Smart HDR algorithm in iOS 12 to retain more detail and address the aggressive skin smoothing complaints. This is in response to the BeautyGate shenanigans that cropped up when the XS launched last month.

  • IPhone XR reviews: the best of iPhone XS with a couple compromises, beats Max battery life

    IPhone XR reviews: the best of iPhone XS with a couple compromises, beats Max battery life

    27 days ago - By 9to5Mac

    The iPhone XR launches this Friday from $749, in six beautiful colors: black, white, blue, red, coral and yellow. Now, the press reviews are dropping which appear to be overwhelmingly positive.
    The XR features the same A12 chip, the same wide angle camera as the XS, and approximates the iPhone X design with aluminium sides, an LCD display and slightly thicker bezels. It even surpasses all iPhones to date in the battery life department. The main drawbacks are losing out on some 3D Touch shortcuts and several Portrait mode limitations. Here's our roundup of the iPhone XR impressions...

    IPhone XR Review

    27 days ago - By iMore

    If you want a next-as-in-X-generation iPhone but you don't want to pay a thousand or more bucks for it, you want an XR.
    iPhone XR - never mind what the R means, it's just a new letter for Apple, one before S, "racing" if you're into cars, "reflex" if you're into cameras, cool-sounding either way. It's everything you need in a next-as-in-X-generation iPhone, minus some bells and whistles... and the higher price tag.
    LCD instead of OLED display. Single instead of dual camera system. Haptic touch instead of 3D Touch. LTE Advanced and 2x2 MIMO instead of Gigabit and 4x4. Aluminum instead of...

    Analyst Claims iPhone XR Pre-Orders Have Outpaced The iPhone 8/8 Plus

    27 days ago - By Ubergizmo

    Apple's iPhone Xs represents the best that Apple has to offer, but getting your hands on the best will not come cheap, and that's where the iPhone XR comes in. However the question is, are customers willing to “compromise” to save themselves a few hundred bucks? Turns out that they are. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that pre-orders for the iPhone XR have outpaced its predecessor , the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus that was released in 2017. No specific numbers were shared, but apparently they have already managed to outpace last year's models, so it looks like his initial...

    IPhone XR demand may have picked up, as delivery times slip to November

    27 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Formally unveiled alongside the iPhone XS and XS Max more than a month ago, Apple's lower-cost iPhone XR finally went up for pre-order on October 19 ahead of an actual commercial release scheduled for this Friday, October 26.
    More colorful than its more capable siblings, the 6.1-inch LCD-sporting iOS handset was widely expected to sell like hotcakes, as buyers could confidently say “I have the best too”, despite spending $250 less.
    But at least for the time being, it appears not that many people agree with Phil Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. ...

    The iPhone XR screen repair cost is now set by Apple

    27 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Apple already posted how much it would cost to resurrect a cracked glass body of its newest iPhone XR member of the happy family, and now it's the screen repair's turn. We will spare you the suspense, and just say that Apple will charge $199 to store repair walk-ins unless you pay for the AppleCare+ coverage, in which case it will be just $29.
    Compared with $279 for the iPhone X/XS or $329 for the XS Max, this may seem like a bargain but going around the notch is priced higher than, say, repairing the iPhone 8 Plus display which is an LCD panel, too, but with higher resolution ...
