Something a little different – you’ll be used to various comparisons of Android flagships versus the iPhone, but, given that Android phones are available at budget prices too, here I’m throwing in some wild cards deliberately. One theory is that you don’t lose that much in phone imaging by going for a budget smartphone – or going for last year (or the previous year’s!) flagship now at clearance and cheap second hand prices. But I contend that the flagships here will take better photos by enough of a margin to warrant the extra purchase price. As evidence, I pitch two budget options against today’s iPhone 11 Pro and the top imaging phone in the Android world.
On the surface, iOS 14 might not look like a massive update that iOS 13 was. However, there a number of new features in iOS 14 that make it an important update, and once you start using it, you will realize the usability improvements they bring to the table. I installed the iOS 14 beta on my iPhone XR to look at how some of the new changes touted by Apple. Here are my first impressions of iOS 14.
At an online-only WWDC event, Apple officially took wraps from the latest iOS 14 operating system. The next iteration of iOS is full of welcome additions such as App Library, redesigned home screen with widgets, Apple Maps enhancements, Privacy controls, and more. We have already covered every possible new feature in a separate post. In this post, we are going to talk about major hidden elements in the iOS 14. These improvements may not seem like a big deal on a first glance but on a whole, they make a strong case a seamless iOS 14 experience.
After months of rumors and speculations, Apple finally revealed the iOS 14 operating system. At an online-only WWDC event, the company showcased the latest version of iOS, iPad OS, macOS, watch OS, and tvOS. As for iOS 14, the latest update for the iPhone is full of head-turning features, improvements, and small tweaks. We will run through a list of the new iOS 14 features and improvements we’ve discovered so far.
Apple unveiled the latest versions of its operating systems during WWDC 2020 earlier today. At its first online-only developers conference, the company unveiled watchOS 7 for the Apple Watch. The new version of watchOS brings a few missing features such as sleep tracking and it also brings new watch faces, new complications, tracking for more workout types, cycling directions, improved Siri with language translation, and better privacy.
iPadOS 14 borrows lots of features from iOS 14, but it still comes with distinctive adjustments and features of its own that boost the iPad’s reputation as a productivity device. With improved Home screen capabilities, native apps designed just for the iPad, and bolstered Apple Pencil support, iPadOS 14 will allow for an exciting experience. Here’s a list of the best iPadOS 14 features that you should know about.
Apple did not release a beta profile for the iOS 13 beta last year. This time around though, the company has made the beta profile as well as the IPSW available for download to developers. This means you can get the iOS 14 beta 1 OTA update on your iPhone as well. Even better, you don’t really need to be a developer for this. You just need to get your hands on the beta profile.
In just over an hour from now, Apple will be holding the 2020 edition of WWDC — its yearly conference aimed at developers. The coronavirus pandemic has forced Apple to hold WWDC virtually this time around. However, just like the last few years, the conference this year should be jam-packed with some exciting announcements. In fact, Apple says this will be the “biggest WWDC to date.” So, here’s everything that we expect Apple to announce at WWDC 2020 on June 22nd.
Later this month, Apple will be announcing iOS 14 at its online-only WWDC 2020 event. iOS 14 is expected to bring some usability changes and focus more on bug fixes and stability improvements rather than cramming a lot more features as the Cupertino company did with iOS 13. As it happens every year though, leaks have detailed a number of iOS 14 features. So, before Apple gets around to unveiling iOS 14, let’s have a look at some confirmed iOS 14 features as per leaks.
Apple’s Services business has been growing at a rapid pace and with every passing year, it is posting record revenues. In fact, the Services business itself is now raking in over $12 billion in revenue for Apple every year. The App Store has been a major reason behind the growth of the Services revenue. However, Apple’s tight grip over the App Store and its revenue-sharing policies are affecting app developers which have made the store such a big success.
