‘iPhone XI’ and ‘iPhone XI Max’ case manufacturing dummies pop up on Chinese social media

‘iPhone XI’ and ‘iPhone XI Max’ case manufacturing dummies pop up on Chinese social media ‘iPhone XI’ and ‘iPhone XI Max’ case manufacturing dummies pop up on Chinese social media By Mike Wuerthele Saturday, April 20, 2019, 12:03 pm PT (03:03 pm ET) A pair of images of an “iPhone XI” dummy for manufacturing purposes purports to show accurate dimensions of the 2019 iPhone lineup, including a square camera extrusion. The images appear to be 3d prints or milled units from a CAD file. Discussion of the dummies suspects them to be iPhone “blanks” matching the dimensions of a future iPhone, used to engineer protective third-party cases. Little can be gleaned from the blanks that hasn’t already been rumored. The camera penetration is square, with three areas where a camera lens would be located. A fourth smaller cutout in the camera extrusion suggests where the flash may end up on the final unit. The second image shows that Apple may be planning to retain the notch. The notch shows four sensor penetrations, and a speaker hole. The provenance of the images isn’t clear. They may in fact be dummies generated from leaked specifications, in much the same way that accurate enclosure dummies were available for the iPhone X and iPhone XS families in late April of 2017 and 2018, respectively. Notably, at the corresponding times, the names for the products were not accurate. However, they may also be pure speculation based on previous rumors. Previous predictions about the 2019 iPhone lineup speculate that the rear cameras of the expected 6.5-inch OLED, 5.8-inch OLED, and 6.1- inch LCD 2019 iPhone models will likely upgrade to triple-camera and dual-camera, respectively. More specifically, a Sony-provided super-wide camera will be added to the model. A new black coating will be used to make the camera “inconspicuous,” but what precisely that entails is not presently known. Ming-Chi Kuo has also speculated that the 2019 iPhone lineup will retain a Lightning connector rather than adopt USB-C, as the iPad Pro range has. iPhones are also expected to keep Apple’s TrueDepth camera and an associated display notch. All or part of the lineup is slated to get UWB (ultra-wide band) for indoor positioning and navigation, a frosted glass casing, and larger batteries. One interesting addition is so-called “bilateral” wireless charging, which would allow the phone to charge other devices wirelessly, acting as a charging pad of sorts. TrueDepth may see an update with a higher-power flood illuminator for better Face ID recognition, Kuo said, while a new 6.1-inch LCD model might be upgraded to incorporate 4GB of RAM, up from the current 3GB in the iPhone XR.

Fantastic Article on Apple Airpods Check this out!! Came across this article online  titled “Your AirPods Will Die Soon” In this article they talk about the Apple Airpods and the battery life.  Basically stating that if you were an early adopter of this Airpods that your probably starting to experience short lifespans between charges.  This is normal apparently.  This is exactly what I am experiencing with mine.  That’s OK with me because I was going to get the new ones when they release later this month anyways!  Can’t live without them!  Read the article below! Technology Your AirPods Will Die Soon The surprisingly short life of new electronic devices Alana Semuels Mar 21, 2019 Tim Cook onstage at an Apple event in 2016Beck Diefenbach / Reuters Share Tweet Email Updated on March 22 at 9:06 p.m. ET.Two years ago, Desmond Hughes heard so many of his favorite podcasters extolling AirPods, Apple’s tiny, futuristic $170 wireless headphones, that he decided they were worth the splurge. He quickly became a convert. Hughes is still listening to podcasters talk about their AirPods, but now they’re complaining. The battery can no longer hold a charge, they say, rendering them functionally useless. Apple bloggers agree: “AirPods are starting to show their age for early adopters,” Zac Hall, an editor at 9to5Mac, wrote in a post in January, detailing how he frequently hears a low-battery warning in his AirPods now. Earlier this month, Apple Insider tested a pair of AirPods purchased in 2016 against a pair from 2018, and found that the older pair died after two hours and 16 minutes. “That’s less than half the stated battery life for a new pair,” the writer William Gallagher concluded. Hughes, who is 35 and lives in Newport News, Virginia, has noticed a similar thing about his own set: At first, their charge lasted five hours, but now they sometimes last only half an hour. He frequently listens to one while charging the other—not optimal conditions for expensive headphones. He’s now gearing up to plunk down more money on another pair. “I just wish they would increase the battery life,” he told me. (On Wednesday, Apple announced it would soon release a new generation of AirPods, but did not say whether the devices would have longer lives. The lithium-ion batteries that power AirPods are everywhere. One industry report forecast that sales would grow to $109.72 billion by 2026, from $36.2 billion in 2018. They charge faster, last longer, and pack more power into a small space than other types of batteries do. But they die faster, too, often after just a few years, because every time you charge them, they degrade a little. They can also catch fire or explode if they become damaged, so technology companies make them difficult, if not impossible, for consumers to replace themselves. The result: A lot of barely chargeable AirPods and wireless mice and Bluetooth speakers are ending up in the trash as consumers go through products—even expensive ones—faster than ever.Hughes told …

Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro could switch to USB-C: analyst

Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro could switch to USB-C: analyst

Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro could switch to USB-C: analyst This is good news everybody.  The USB-C port is the port of choice.  Higher data transfer speeds and no worrying about which way to plugin.  I know it means you need to get new cables but it worth it.  Read more below: By Patrick O’RourkeSEP 10, 20182:38 PM EDT0 COMMENTS It looks like the next version of Apple’s iPad Pro could make the jump to USB-C — at least in some capacity. While this rumour is somewhat difficult to believe, frequently accurate KGI Securities Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, says that Apple’s 2018 iPad Pro will feature USB-C, as first reported by MacRumors. What’s unclear is if Kuo means that the iPad Pro will swap out the Lightning port for a USB-C plug, or if a Lightning-to-USB-C adapter will be included with the tablet. The latter possibility seems more likely, given that Apple has stuck with Lightning for all of its portable devices, with its MacBook line of laptops being the only exception. Other iPad Pro related rumours include the new version of the tablet featuring reduced bezels, Face ID functionality borrowed from the iPhone X and upcoming iPhone XS, and, as a result, a notch. That said, other conflicting rumours hint that the tablet won’t feature a notch, but that its bezels will be greatly reduced. The 2018 iPad Pro’s design is also expected to be revamped with a new unibody design. Finally, rumours also point to the tablet including an 8W power adapter. The iPad Pro is expected to still be sold in 10.5-inch and 12.9-inch variants, just like the current 2017 version of the tablet. While it’s possible we might still catch a glimpse of Apple’s new iPad at the company’s September 12th hardware event, it’s likely that Apple will hold an additional event in October focused on the often-rumoured MacBook Air and the new version of its iPad Pro.

‘iPhone XS’ and ‘iPhone XC’ will ship on Sept. 21, according to Italian courier

'iPhone XS' and 'iPhone XC' will ship on Sept. 21, according to Italian courier

‘iPhone XS’ and ‘iPhone XC’ will ship on Sept. 21, according to Italian courier This is what is reported.  I beleive we will be selling the new iPhones on September 21st, 2018.  This just based on past years launch dates.  I dont see Apple changing this of course there will be limited supply again consistent with the past.   Please read what they feel will be the launch dates below: By Malcolm Owen Monday, September 10, 2018, 06:44 am PT (09:44 am ET) Apple could start to distribute smartphones set to be unveiled on Wednesday not long after the announcement, with a report suggesting the first batch of “iPhone XS” and “iPhone XC” models could ship to customers as early as September 21 in Italy.   A screenshot of an Italian shipper’s internal messaging system reportedly warns its employees to anticipate higher workloads in the near future. The image, obtained by iPhone Italia, appears to indicate the first high-traffic day to be September 21, just nine days after Apple’s event. AppleInsider has confirmed the carrier, and it is Apple’s shipping partner in Italy, and a host of other countries. The message also warns that there will be increased deliveries on September 25 through to September 27, but not as high as the initial wave planned for September 21. While the message does not specify what will be delivered on those days, the subject line does mention Apple by name, indicating the increases are linked to the company’s announcements. It also does not advise for higher-than-normal deliveries before September 21, which may be an indicator of when iPhone deliveries are to commence. There is also no mention of deliveries before September 21, which suggests those days are expected to have normal delivery levels. While the internal email relates to Italy, it could also be an indicator for when the new models will ship in other markets. Since Italy is typically among the first markets to receive shipments of Apple products after launch, it is likely for the new iPhones to be made available on the same date in the United States and areas of Europe. Apple’s “Gather Round” event on Sept. 12 is expected to see the launch of three new iPhones, as well as potential changes for the Apple Watch, iPad Pro, and Mac lines.

Everything You Need to Know About Apple’s Upcoming 2018 iPhones


Everything You Need to Know About Apple’s Upcoming 2018 iPhones With tomorrow being the big day for Apples announcement of its latest iPhones and an additional small list of other products here is the final guesses of what we can possibly expect in the latest release.  Checkout the final rumors of what we will be seeing tomorrow.  I for one am looking forward to it.  Read below: iPhone Xs Apple’s rumored 2018 iPhone lineup. AT A GLANCE Apple is rumored to be introducing three iPhones in 2018: Two OLED models known as iPhone Xs measuring in at 5.8 and 6.5 inches, and a 6.1-inch lower-cost LCD model. All three will feature Face ID and edge-to-edge displays. CURRENT RUMORS Three iPhones expected, two OLED and one LCD OLED iPhone Xs models will be 5.8 and 6.5 inches LCD iPhone will feature 6.1-inch display and lower price tag All iPhones to feature Face ID and edge-to-edge display A12 ProcessorsFaster LTE   Coming in 2018: Apple’s Three iPhone Lineup CONTENTS Coming in 2018: Apple’s Three iPhone Lineup 2018 iPhone Naming – The iPhone Xs 5.8 and 6.5-inch iPhone Xs and Xs Max Battery Technology iOS 12 6.1-Inch iPhone With LCD Display Part Leaks Leaked Schematics and Renders Dummy Models Face ID and TrueDepth Camera System A12 Processor, RAM, and Storage LTE Chips USB-C Power Adapter and Lightning Cable Other Rumors Production, Pricing, and Release Date Sales Predictions Beyond 2018 Rumors iPhone Xs Timeline We started hearing rumors about the iPhones we can expect to see in 2018 before the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus had even launched, and based on those rumors, 2018 will be an exciting year for iPhone advancements. In 2018, Apple is planning to continue on with its three iPhone lineup, introducing three new iPhones. The first is said to be a second-generation version of the iPhone X, with the same 5.8-inch OLED display, while the second can be thought of as an “iPhone X Plus,” also with a larger 6.5-inch OLED display. Along with these two OLED iPhones, which will be similar in price to the current iPhone X, Apple is planning to introduce a new, more affordable 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display. This device could possibly use a Full Active LCD display, which would offer improved technology over the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus display. Leaked info suggests Apple is going to use the name “iPhone Xs” and “iPhone Xs Max” for its two new OLED iPhones, which is a naming scheme that it has used in the past for “S” generation phones where the focus is on new features rather than new designs. In line with that name, we’re expecting all three of the new iPhones to look similar to the iPhone X. The three iPhones will feature an edge-to-edge screen with the same nearly non-existent bezels of the iPhone X, and all will be equipped with a TrueDepth camera system that supports Face ID. That means 2018 will mark the official end of the Home button and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor in …

Leaked ‘iPhone Xc’ prototype images claim to show new color options, dual-SIM, more

Leaked ‘iPhone Xc’ prototype images claim to show new color options, dual-SIM, more Chance Miller – Sep. 9th 2018 8:24 am PT   57 Comments Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest LinkedIn Reddit Ahead of Apple’s September 12th ‘Gather round’ event, purported images of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone have leaked. The images, which claim to show “prototype” devices, features the ‘iPhone Xc’ in a handful of colors, including the much-coveted red Shared on Twitter by Ben Geskin, these images show the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone in four colors: white, space gray, rose gold, and red. The devices feature the same back glass design as the current iPhones. Previous reports have suggested that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be available in a handful of color options, but these images only show four of them. For the past two years Apple has introduced red as a color option mid-year option through its PRODUCT(RED) partnership, but these images suggests the red option will be available on day-one this year. In addition to the colors, these images offer a look at how the lower-priced LCD iPhone will use aluminum edges, as opposed to the stainless steel used by the iPhone X. We can also see the single lens camera setup on the back, which is another cost-saving measure for Apple. Lastly, one of the images shows the device with a dual-SIM card slot. Past reports have suggested this could be the year Apple adopts dual-SIM support on the iPhone, and this image seemingly corroborates that. It is likely, however, that the dual-SIM model of the iPhone will be limited to certain markets – as Bloomberg suggested last month. These images should be taken with a grain of salt and treated with skepticism. Geskin first shared them earlier this week, saying they were dummy units – which we have seen several times thus far this iPhone cycle. This morning, however, Geskin reshared the images and said they are actually the “real deal” and show the ‘iPhone Xc’ in prototype form. Either way, we’re just a few days away from Apple’s official announcement of the 2018 iPhones.
