The first documented case of a law enforcement agency forcing a suspect to unlock their iPhone X using Face ID has been unearthed by Forbes. The incident occurred on August 10 when the FBI searched the house of Grant Michalski in Columbus, Ohio for possessing child pornography.
iPhone X: Everything You Need to Know!
First Reported Case of Law Enforcement Agency Forcing Suspect to Unlock iPhone X using Face ID Detailed
The iPhone XS and iPhone XR have a brand new feature. After you click a Portrait Mode photo, you can go into the Edit menu and change the intensity of the bokeh. Basically, you can change the background blur (make it softer or more pronounced) after you’ve already clicked the photo. Apple is touting this as one of the best new features in iPhone XS. But you can get it on iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and even the iPhone 7 Plus using a third party app.
The iPhone XS offers relatively minor improvements over the iPhone X. It is only in the camera department that Apple has made some major improvements by switching to a larger camera sensor with a bigger pixel pitch. The company has also added computational photography called Smart HDR for improved details and dynamic range in photos.
When Apple unveiled the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, it claimed the A12 Bionic chip inside them offered a 15 percent performance improvement over the A11 Bionic chip of the iPhone X. However, with iOS 12 bringing performance improvements for older iOS devices as well, many users wondered if the iPhone XS brought about any meaningful performance improvements to the table or not.
DPReview reports that some iPhone X users are reporting that iOS 12 significantly degrades the quality of their display. Reddit user shannister reports “slightly washed out screen, colours popping less and blacks appearing more greyed out” after installing the iOS 12 update.
The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come with a Gigabit LTE modem which at least on paper makes them significantly faster when compared to the iPhone X. How much of a difference does it make in real life though?
The iPhone X and iPhone XS share the same design language. The only upgrade Apple has made in terms of design on the latter is an improved IP certification but that’s about it. This change does not bring about any external changes to the iPhone XS. So does this mean cases for the iPhone X will be compatible with the iPhone XS?
With Apple announcing the Indian pricing for the new iPhone Xs lineup, the company has decided to slash the pricing of the existing iPhones including the iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and the iPhone X.
After raising $750,000 in an original Kickstarter goal of $500,000 in 2017, mobile camera equipment manufacturer Moment has announced the launch of its Battery Camera case for the iPhone Xs and the iPhone X.
The iPhone Xs and iPhone X might look very similar at first glance. However, in typical Apple fashion, an ‘s’ upgrade is always about major performance and camera improvements, and the same stands true for the iPhone Xs. Plus, with Apple discontinuing the iPhone X, the iPhone Xs is the phone that now most people would consider buying.
