After initially being announced on September 12th, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro went on sale on September 20th. Now that the devices are out for almost three weeks, what are your thoughts on them? How happy are you with your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro?
This time around, Apple started accepting pre-orders for not one or two but three iPhones at the same time: the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. While the iPhone 11 Pro series is meant for pro users, the iPhone 11 is meant for casual users who don’t need that excellent display or the additional flexibility of the triple-camera system.
Next week, Apple will be announcing the iPhone 11 series. The new handsets are going to follow the same design language as the iPhone X/XS series but will feature some major internal and external changes. The iPhone 11 is going to be a bigger upgrade over the iPhone XS compared to what the latter was over the iPhone X.
Up until a few weeks ago, it was widely believed that the iPhone XS successors from Apple this year would be called the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Max. However, a reputed leaker has thrown a bit of a twist in this story by suggesting that Apple could adopt the Pro naming scheme for its iPhone lineup this year.
Last week, Apple released iOS 13 beta 4 to the public. While the first few beta releases of iOS 13 were a bit buggy, the latest beta build seems to bring about some major improvements in terms of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Last month, Apple launched Apple News+ amidst quite a bit of fanfare. While all-you-can-eat subscription services are nothing new, Apple jumping into the market will always have some major implications. Despite Apple’s prowess, Apple News+ has had a less than stellar start with around 200,000 people signing up for it within 48 hours of launch.
iOS 12 is all about performance improvements and those nice little features that make the OS easier and more convenient to use. But what about battery life? Apple did not claim any battery life improvements with iOS 12 but if early test results are anything to go by, the performance improvements brought about by iOS 12 actually come at the expense of battery life.
