  1. Gaming as an industry is one of the fastest growing markets and it seems like big tech giants like Apple are also part of the phenomenon. Gaming companies like Sony and Microsoft have generally been known as the two giants in gaming, thanks to their consoles and exclusive games. However, Apple is also now amongst the top five publicly traded gaming entities. © Epic Games According to a report by Newzoo, Apple is amongst the top five companies that contribute to the gaming industry. Apple may not cater to hardcore gamers like Sony and Microsoft, however, the company has amassed a firm position thanks to casual gamers on iPhones. Apple is just behind Tencent, Sony, Microsoft and Activision Blizzard. The report adds that the top 35 public gaming companies have generated almost $114 billion in 2018 as the top five have generated 43% of the collective revenue. © YouTube Apple has managed to rake in $2.09 billion just from gaming in the first quarter of 2018 and the number is expected to rise this year thanks to its upcoming Apple Arcade service. Newzoo estimates Apple earned $9.453 billion from games during 2018. Previously, Apple has relied on microtransactions from games to generate a high income; however the company is now moving forward with a subscription service that will offer exclusive games in order to depend less on the microtransactions business model. © Pexels The report also said that mobile gaming is the largest segment in the mobile industry and expects more PC gamers to switch in 2019.

  2. Apple announced a bunch of new features that will be coming to iOS 13. However, not many were detailed at WWDC 2019. The next major update for iOS is expected to roll out when the new iPhone is announced and a public beta will roll out sometime in July. There will be many new features and performance upgrades that you should be taking advantage of. Here are some of the reasons why you should upgrade to iOS 13 when it is made available. It Will Make The iPhone Faster Apple Every year Apple wants to bring updates that are beneficial to iOS devices and the majority of it has to do with making iPhones faster. It was the first thing Apple mentioned at WWDC's presentation and the company is expected to make huge leaps. Apple claims that iOS 13 will make the Face ID unlock speed faster than ever before; in fact, it will be 30 percent faster. The company also mentioned that App launch speeds will also be boosted considerably. When it comes to App downloads, iOS 13 will reduce the size of the apps by half and updates will also be smaller by 60 percent. Streaming Music To Two AirPods Apple Ever wanted to share music with your friends but you couldn't since the iPhone no longer supports a headphone jack? With iOS 13 you will now be able to send music to two separate AirPods at the same time. This will enable users to enjoy music or a movie together without having the need of sharing AirPods. Bluetooth has traditionally only allowed a single connection to earphones or an audio device. However, this new feature will change the way we share music with friends. Privacy Above All Else Apple Apple has always been upholding Privacy as one of the most important features of any of their products. The company has consistently attacked Google, Facebook and other businesses that target users and track their activity. Apple has now introduced a “Sign In With Apple” feature that basically blocks apps from tracking sensitive information. It gives users the power to allow apps to access location data, information and other personal data. Apple has also taken necessary steps to inform users which apps are tracking them in the background without their permission or knowledge. “Sign In With Apple” will also substitute your email address with a random email forwarding address so that you are not bothered with marketing emails and spam. This will let users not reveal their true email addresses and can disable the random email address from receiving communication whenever they want to. Find Apple Devices Even When Offline We often forget our iPhone, MacBook, iPads and AirPods in cafes or other public spots on busy days. Earlier, we could use the Find My iPhone app to locate our devices; however, it had to be connected to a network. With iOS 13, the Find My app will now be able to locate a lost or stolen device even when it is not connected to an internet connection. Apple Basically, an Apple device that is lost will basically ping other nearby Apple devices to detect its location. The information will be relayed back to Apple's servers securely and then will be transmitted to your Find My app. It will basically use Bluetooth to communicate with other Apple devices and all the information from your lost device will remain private and secure. Better Battery Life Macrumours iOS 13 will also come with a new feature that will extend your iPhone's battery life and health. It's called the "Optimized Battery Charging" feature that will basically learn from your usage habits for more effective and balanced charging. For example, if you charge your smartphone at night while sleeping, this feature will charge your iPhone to 80% and then wait an hour or so before you wake up to charge it up to 100%. This basically keeps your iPhone charged at optimum capacity and then charge the remaining capacity when you actually need it. Dark Mode FTW Apple Apple finally heard the fans and is bringing a Dark Mode feature as a part of the iOS 13 update. Dark Mode has a few advantages such as putting less strain on your eyes, look pretty and also help in conserving battery life. However, the Dark Mode will be most effective on devices that use OLED displays i.e the iPhone XS, XS Max and X. OLED displays are the best for displaying deep black colours as there isn't much grey light leakage. Dark Mode will be applicable to everything from the lock screen, notifications and the overall UI. Users will be able to fire up the mode from the Control Center and even set it up according to the local sunrise and sunset schedule. Dark Mode will automatically activate when it is evening and revert to the brighter interface during the day.
  3. The Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd wired in-ear earphones showed up for review at a time when the 3.5mm headphone jack is becoming obsolete. Seriously, I didn't think I'd be reviewing wired in-ear earphones in 2019. But you know what? It's earphones like these that make me want to use smartphones and other audio equipment that have an audio jack. Trust me, I've been using the Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd earphones for the last couple of weeks to listen to all my music, both when I am just chilling at home and on the go, and I've been loving it. Let me tell you all about it - Design & Build Quality In terms of the looks, these look like very basic. You see, Beyerdynamic has been making audio equipment for a long time now. Their products are best known for audio quality, not much for the design aesthetics. It's one of those brands that focus on performance over looks. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer So when you look at the Beat Byrd and give it a listen, you'll quickly realize that the company's objective was to make a piece of hardware that's more functional. The earpiece housing is made out of plastic and you get silicon ear tips. There are no fancy rugged braided cables to be seen here and all you get is a cable made out of rubber. These also happen to be one of the most affordable products from the company, which explains why it doesn't look all that fancy. They're certainly not going to grab any attention like, say, the AirPods do, but the audiophiles around you will definitely appreciate your choice. Also, they're supremely comfortable. I literally had them on for multiple hours the other day without experiencing fatigue. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer And since we're talking about the build quality, I think it's a good time to point out that these earphones lack a remote or mic. So yes, you won't be able to take calls or switch/ play/ pause music. It'll obviously come as a surprise for most people, but that shouldn't really bother you if you're picking these earphones strictly for listening to music. Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd Audio Quality Before I talk about the audio quality, I'd like to point out that it's extremely important to pick the right size of ear tips for a snug fit. That's how you'll be able to enjoy the music and get the most out of this pair of earphones. In fact, that holds true for all the earphones, because if they don't fit well enough, then you're not going to experience bass. The Beat Byrd comes with a couple of ear tips inside the box, so be sure you play around with the fit before jumping into music. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer That's the first thing I did before listening to any music and boy was I surprised by the audio quality. Alright, I am not going to say that these are best sounding earphones or headphones that I've ever used. The 1More Quad Driver earphones and the Sennheiser HE 1 still take the cake for that, but the Beat Byrd is certainly one of the best wired in-ear earphones I've used in my recent memory. I started listening to my usual Spotify playlist to get an idea of how good they are. But as soon as I connected it to my Pixel 3a XL and popped them in, I was quite surprised by the audio quality. And that's when I started exploring more music, going back to my old playlist to find some classic funk and hip-hop music. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd is a pair of bass heavy earphones. If you're not into them, then these aren't for you. But one of the things that I really liked is that the bass had more depth than I had expected. The way they're tuned is extremely warm and friendly, and the bass is clearly given more supremacy. If you primarily listen to hip-hop music Tupac's 'Until the End of Time' Album. Or try listening to something like Fat Larry's 'Band - Act Like You Know', you'll love it. The Final Say You can pick up the Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd for just Rs. 2,199, which, as mentioned earlier, makes it the company's one of the most affordable products. At that price, it's really hard to criticize it. Yes, the design could have been a little better, but it's important to understand that it's not always about the design. If you like bass-heavy earphones, then you find it an absolute pleasure to use these earphones. The audio quality is simply addictive. Overall, I'll say that Beyerdynamic Beat Byrd's bass-heavy sound is something that you'll absolutely fall in love with. Even without any discounts, these are simply awesome for the price. So, just go ahead and pick one up.
  4. Apple just announced iOS 13 for the iPhone and has started to roll out as a Beta for current devices. It comes with many new performance improvements and software tweaks to make the iPhone experience even better. One such feature is called "Optimized Battery Charging” and is designed to improve your battery's total life and health. © Macrumors The new mode can be found in the battery section of settings and you need to head to “Battery Health”. You can switch it if you want to extend your iPhone's battery life. When switched on, this mode basically learns from your usage and habits and then waits to finish charging to 100% until you need your device. © Pexels For a simpler explanation, if you charge your smartphone at night while sleeping, Apple will charge it to 80% and then wait an hour or so before you wake up to charge it up to 100%. This basically keeps your iPhone charged at optimum capacity and then charge the remaining capacity when you actually need it, instead of keeping the iPhone charged at 100%. © Reuters When any device with a battery is continually charging after it reaches maximum capacity, this, in turn, does affect the battery health. This new feature is essentially a life safer who want to keep using their iPhone without having the need of replacing the battery sooner than expected. This feature will eventually prolong the life of the device as long as possible. If you would like to check out iOS 13, you can follow our guide on how to install it on your device right now. According to Apple, these are devices that can take part in the iOS 13 beta - iPhone XS, XS Max iPhone XR iPhone X iPhone 8, 8 Plus iPhone 7, 7 Plus iPhone 6s, 6s Plus iPhone SE iPod Touch 7th Generation Source: Macrumors
  5. Last night, Apple announced a bunch of new features for the upcoming iOS 13 update and it will be available for users by this fall. Some features bring stability and performance improvements. While there are general improvements, Apple has also added new features and a brand new dark mode. If you've been wondering what all Apple announced last night, here's our comprehensive list for the smartphone. A Faster FaceID Apple announced that the facial recognition process from the TrueDepth camera will be 30% faster than what we are used to right now. The faster unlocking will help users get into their smartphones without having to wait for FaceID to recognise your face. The process is already fast enough but with the 30% improvement, it could really change the way we would unlock iPhones. Dark Mode © Apple A dark mode for iPhone is one the most sought after features and Apple finally made it a reality last night. The iPhone's interface will change into darker tones and will also translate to system-wide apps and third-party apps who enable the feature. The new dark mode comes with added benefits such as better battery life and the fact that it would put less strain on your eyes. Sign In With Apple © Apple Apple has made it easier for customers to now protect themselves with a new “Sign in with Apple” feature. You will no longer have to use Facebook or Google sign in which can be later used to track your activity. Apple wants to protect users by providing a developer with a random unique ID. Users will also have the option to keep their identities a secret and share relevant information with the application. Apple has also integrated FaceID and Touch ID for this feature as an additional layer of security. More Photo Editing Tools © Apple Apple is now going to make it easier to manage and edit images on iOS 13 thanks to machine learning. The Photos app will be able to highlight the best images, automatically remove duplicate images or screenshots and will intelligently organise your library. It will be even easier to discover and browse your images. Photo editing tools have now been expanded with more Portrait Lighting adjustments, more editing tools, new effects and a better interface. Apple has also introduced a new High-Key Mono effect that creates a monochromatic look for Portrait mode photos. Additional Features - Messages can automatically share a user's name and photo, or customised Memoji or Animoji -With AirPods, Siri can read incoming messages as soon as they arrive, from Messages or any SiriKit™-enabled messaging app - Two AirPods can listen to content from a single iPhone as Apple introduced a new audio sharing feature. - Voice Control provides a powerful new experience that enables users to operate their iPhone, iPad or Mac entirely by their voice. - Files app introduces the ability to share folders with iCloud Drive and access files from external storage devices like SD cards and USB flash drives. - Reminders app has a new look and offers intelligent ways to create and edit reminders.
  6. The most commonly requested feature by Apple users, is the ability to share music with their friends. In fact, since Apple removed the headphone jack, it has become harder to listen to music along with your friends. Wired earphones let users share music with each other by sharing each earbud. However, sharing AirPods or any wireless Bluetooth device is a big pain but it seems like Apple has already found a fix. © Apple Currently, iPhone and iPad support multiform audio via AirPlay 2 and it works on speakers that support the feature. I use the multi-room system on my Sonos setup using Apple's AirPlay feature. However, a new report by Macotakara spotted by 9to5Mac says that Apple will be adding dual Bluetooth audio support for the iPhone 11 or whatever it will be called. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Dual Bluetooth output has been a long requested feature which essentially means that two people can listen to the same audio content from one iPhone. For example, if you and your friend both have AirPods, you will be able to listen to the same music simultaneously from an iPhone on your own set of AirPods. Currently, the iPhone only supports connecting one audio device at a time which makes it harder to share Bluetooth devices to listen to music at the same time. © Apple The iPhone, however, does support multiple Bluetooth connections already as the iPhone can communicate with the Apple Watch and transmit music to the AirPods simultaneously. Dual Bluetooth audio output is not a new concept as some Android devices already support this feature and it would be great to see this on the iPhone as well. Having said that, using dual Bluetooth audio output has its own drawbacks as it often leads to unstable connections and synchronisation. It would be interesting to see how Apple would tackle this issue. There's a good chance that Apple may refresh its W1 chip for this feature to work. Of course, this is a rumoured feature that we may or may not see on the next iPhone and needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. Having said that, the AirPods are one of Apple's most successful products since the iPhone and are more of a social phenomenon today. It would be logical for the Cupertino giant to make this feature available on the iPhone for AirPods users to enjoy music together. Source: Macotakara
  7. According to a finding by 9to5Mac, Apple devices have now shown up in the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory database. The new iPhone models have shown up ahead of their release later this year and we finally know what the model numbers are. © YouTube The 2019 iPhones have appeared in the database with model numbers A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223. The database compiles a list of devices that depend on encryption technologies and most of Apple's devices both past and present are on that list. Similarly, earlier this year the iPad Air and iPad mini 5 were registered on the database five months ahead of its launch. According to the 9to5Mac's report, “The A2111, A2161, A2215 identifiers probably represent the new iPhone XR successor. The other model identifiers will be for the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max.” The other model numbers are also expected to be different versions of the iPhone 11 and the iPhone R successor as different regions offer different cellular band compatibility. In the case of China, the iPhone comes with a physical dual SIM phone that is exclusive to the region. © Twitter 2019 iPhones are expected to look largely the same as the previous generation while previous leaks have suggested a triple-camera setup at the back. In terms of the feel of the phone, there are rumours that suggest that Apple is opting for a more matte finish instead of the glass back. Other new features include reverse wireless charging for the new AirPods and Apple new more A13 chipset. © Twitter Apple will be adding an extra sensor to both the iPhone XR and the iPhone 11/11Max as a form of upgrades. The iPhone XR is now rumoured to have a dual-camera setup similar to the iPhone XS whereas the iPhone 11 is expected to have a triple camera setup. The iPhone 11 is expected to have a larger camera bump and in the shape of a square. The additional third sensor is said to be an ultra-wide lens and will also be used for more detailed images at a standard zoom level. The new iPhones are expected to be announced at Apple's annual press event that is scheduled to take place sometime in September. Source: 9to5Mac
  8. The next launch of a brand new iPhone is a few months away but a new patent has popped up that may give us a hint about a new feature. Ever since iPhone X was announced, Apple phased out the Touch ID biometric system in favour for an edge-to-edge design. We still got to see the feature on the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. However, it was later replaced by FaceID on the iPhone XR. © Apple The iPhone XS and XS Max uses the same FaceID unlock system as its predecessor but a notable feature was missing. It seems like Apple is now looking to bring back TouchID according to the patent. The Cupertino giant is developing a fingerprint sensor that lets users unlock the smartphone by touching anywhere on the screen. The patent was granted to Apple earlier this week and was spotted by Patently Apple. © Patently Apple It would be a cool new feature if seen on the upcoming iPhone 11 and we have something similar to Apple's version developed by Vivo for a concept phone. The patent calls Apple's version as an "acoustic imaging system”. Another weird feature spotted in the same patent was the new sensor's ability to map a user's ear. The system would simply map your ear and unlock the smartphone for seamless call answering and other features. As usual, patents don't really translate to a final product every time and we would not keep our hopes high until its fully revealed or made official by Apple. We sincerely hope this feature does come to the iPhone 11 as many users still prefer to unlock smartphones with a fingerprint or at least want the option. Source: Patently Apple
  9. Apple has updated its line of smart battery cases for the current generation on iPhones and the Cupertino giant has not only refined them but made them work in the favour of iPhones. The iPhone XR already has an impressive battery life and with the addition of the new Smart Battery Case, we were astonished as to how many hours our iPhones lasted. We got the smart battery case for the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR and couldn't be happier with its performance. The new iPhone Smart Battery Case costs Rs 11,900 in India and here's our detailed analysis to let you know why it's worth it. How Does It Look? © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Apple follows a similar design ethos as the original Smart Battery Case. However, there are a few design features that have changed from before. It has the same soft silicone material as the normal covers but has changed ergonomically. It has micro-fibre in the inside so that it keeps your iPhone clean and now has a light that lights up when you charge the case separately. The hump at the back is now evenly distributed and extends to the bottom of the case. At the front, Apple has also removed the chin so that you can now use gestures easily to navigate on your iPhone. The top end of the Smart Battery Case is bendable which you use to slip in your iPhone. Do make sure that you slide in the phone rather than popping it in as you can damage the lightning port inside the cover. Having said that the Smart Battery Case is refined ergonomically, the case does make your phone heavier. It's also quite thick which can be an issue for people who like to wear tight fitted jeans/bottoms. How Does It Work © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Smart Battery Case is integrated with iOS and you can see the status of your battery on the lock screen or on the battery widget. The Smart Battery Case has a dedicated Lightning port which means you can charge the case and iPhone at the same time. The case offers Lightning Passthrough which makes it easier to charge both devices at the same time. You should note that it will charge the iPhone first and then the Smart Battery Case. You can even fast charge both devices as the Smart Battery Case also supports USB-PD (power delivery). You will need Apple's fast charger and USB-C to lightning cable in order for this to work. © Apple You can even charge both the case and the iPhone wirelessly as it works almost the same as it does via the wall charger. The iPhone will get the priority and then it will charge the Smart Battery Case. How's The Battery Life? When it comes to battery discharge, the Smart Battery Case keeps the iPhone charged to 100% for almost an entire day. The iPhone first consumes juice from the smart case and then starts to use its own battery when the juice on the case is depleted. This effectively made the iPhone XR last up to almost two full days (42 hours) on a single charge and the iPhone XS Max for around 38 hours. Do note that we used both the smartphones as our daily drivers that included hours of browsing, GPS navigation, a little bit of gaming and a lot of emails. If you are the kind of iPhone user who spends most of the day on your phone and your life depends on it, this accessory is a no brainer. Sure, it's expensive but it is probably the most comprehensive and reliable battery case you can get. It's integrated with iOS and has smart charging features that you won't find in any third party smart battery cases. It works wirelessly and can also be charged rapidly with Apple's fast charger. iPhone cases are our favourite accessories for the phones, and if you are planning to buy one soon; why not extend your battery life while you're at it?
  10. If you've already been using a MacBook and have enabled the dark mode feature on macOS, then you already know what's in store. iOS 13 is expected to release later this year and will finally add dark mode to iOS devices, system-wide. This news comes via a report from 9to5Mac that details the future update from Apple. © Twitter The report suggests that users will be able to enable and control the dark mode feature from the main settings page. It is said to work similar to the dark mode feature in macOS and will enable a dark theme for the iPhone or iPad. Having said that, the dark mode may not be available on specific apps and individual app developers will have to enable support for dark mode. © YouTube Other updates may include new multitasking features for the iPad and an overhaul on the Mail app. The mail app is sed to get a new “undo” feature similar to what you may have seen on Gmail and other email services. The new multitasking features on the Ipad will enable users to use multiple apps at the same time. However, instead of implementing a split-screen window, the update would allow each app to run in multiple, smaller windows. 9to5Mac says in the report: "Each window will also be able to contain sheets that are initially attached to a portion of the screen, but can be detached with a drag gesture, becoming a card that can be moved around freely,” © Twitter Another small change may come to the volume adjusting window on iOS devices. As of now, when a user turns up or down the volume, an on-screen graphic takes over your screen obstructing your view of the content behind the graphic. In fact, the volume control animation has also been subjected to memes which basically occupies a major portion of the iPhone's screen when adjusting the volume. There's no way to confirm these rumours until Apple makes them official at WWDC later this year. Until then, we can only hope these rumours come to fruition as we've wanted a dark mode feature on iOS devices for years. Source: 9to5Mac
  11. Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone XR, an 'affordable' iPhone that shared many of the same hardware features as the more expensive XS and XS Max. The iPhone XR turned out to be our favorite iPhone of the bunch last year, and you can read our review here. Now, Samsung has launched the new Galaxy S10e which follows the same footsteps. The Galaxy S10e is a compact phone that shares a lot of hardware advancements added in the standard Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. So, we decided to compare them & find out which one's a better affordable flagship. Here's how they compare: Display © YouTube Samsung's Galaxy S10e features a 5.8-inch 2280 x 1080 OLED display, whereas Apple's iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch 1792 x 828 LCD display. Both, on paper and in the real world, the Galaxy S10e is a better-looking display. Samsung's OLED is crisp, bright, and vibrant, just like any other flagship phone's display. That's not to say that the iPhone XR's display is bad by any means. It's one of the best LCD panels around, but it can't quite match the OLED display. When it comes to the cutouts, the Galaxy S10e has a punch-hole design, which Samsung likes to call an 'Infinity-O' display. The iPhone XR, on the other hand, uses the same notch as the iPhone XS and the XS Max as it packs the same FaceID system. Both are equally intrusive when it comes to content consumption like videos, etc. but again, the Galaxy S10e display's looks more modern and just better in person. Winner: Samsung Galaxy S10e Performance © YouTube The iPhone XR is powered by Apple's A12 bionic chip, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S10e model, which we used, is powered by an Exynos 9820 SoC. Apple's iPhones typically beat Samsung's when it comes to processor performance. Even the Snapdragon 855 SoC is no match. Of course, you won't find much of a difference in everyday tasks, but the A12 Bionic is a beast. As for the RAM and storage, the Galaxy S10e is equipped with 6GB RAM, double the RAM in the iPhone XR. It sounds like a small number of paper, but Apple is traditionally known to make better use of low RAM, thanks to the deep integration between hardware and software. When it comes to the storage options, the base variant of the Galaxy S10e comes with 128GB storage & the iPhone XR's base variant comes with 64GB. BTW, you can also expand the storage via a microSD card on the Galaxy S10e, but you can't do that with the iPhone XR. Winner: iPhone XR Biometrics © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Apple's FaceID system is the best in the business, and seriously there's no match to it. Even the Galaxy S10e has a facial recognition system, but Apple's system is more reliable and secure. But thankfully, the Galaxy S10e has a physical fingerprint scanner on the side. Yes, it's a deviation from Galaxy S10 devices that have an under-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, but that's better because the Galaxy S10e's scanner is more fast and reliable than that of the standard S10 variants. Both phones, however, have strong points when it comes to biometrics. With the Galaxy S10e you get a physical scanner, whereas the iPhone XR has the reliable FaceID. So, you can't go wrong with either of them. Winner: It's a tie. Camera © YouTube Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e have scaled back on the rear camera to, you know, cut down on cost. However, the iPhone XR uses a single-lens camera while the Galaxy S10e has a dual-lens camera. The S10e features both wide and ultra-wide lenses, while the iPhone XR sports only a single wide-angle lens, with which it can also do portraits. We found both cameras to be equally good. With iPhone XR, you're looking at a typical iPhone camera with a very familiar interface. The images look very crisp, natural and true-to-life, which is always something we all can appreciate. With the Galaxy S10e, you'll get a typical Samsung camera which captures, you know, more vibrant and saturated (sometimes over-saturated) images, which one may or may not necessarily like. Unlike the iPhone XR which has a software portrait mode that doesn't work pets, food or anything but people, the Galaxy S10e can handle it all. It doesn't have any limitations. Add an ultra-wide lens to that, you have a very capable camera in your pockets. Winner: It's a tie, again. The Final Say © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Both the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10e, as you can see, have ups and downs of their own. Apple is offering FaceID, the powerful A12 Bionic chip, great software/ hardware integration, etc. while Samsung is offering a dual-lens rear camera setup, a great OLED display, and expandable storage. However, there are other things to consider like the fact that the Galaxy S10e is a more compact phone, it runs Android instead of iOS, etc. So, at the end of the day, it comes to personal preference. But if you want to an affordable device that packs all the modern day tech, then you really can't go wrong with either of them.
  12. No, this is not a late April Fool's joke or a prank by Apple. According to a new patent filing submitted by Apple, future devices such as the iPhone and Apple Watches may have “smell recognition capabilities”. © MensXP The company has been trying to detect air pollution levels and other harmful particles with tiny sensors that could be embedded into future devices. The new patent also shows that Apple could use other multiple sensors that will be able to detect body odour, rotten food and maybe sugar levels. The patent is called “System and Methods for Environment Sensing” and it explains a system where sensors could be used with an “artificial intelligence engineer to recognize smells associated with certain chemicals.” The patent also shows how an ionic liquid sensor would be tuned to specific ranges and enclosed into an SoC. How Sensors Will Work? The system would have an in-built that will be able to raise temperatures on the ionic fluid in order to reverse any chemical reactions. Patents show that Apple is going to add the smelling technology to the Apple Watch and the iPhone. © YouTube Previous patents show that Apple wants to give owners of their devices to access air quality data. This would be highly useful especially in areas where pollution levels are off the roof. The previous patent by Apple shows that Apple wants to monitor the ozone, carbon monoxide and other harmful gases. © MensXP For diabetic patients, it would be awesome to detect blood sugar levels without the need for withdrawing blood. This would be a game changer for people who want to get rid of the tedious process. As for detecting body odour, that would help everyone from being embarrassed for sure. Being a patent, we cannot expect to see these sensors and features on a new iPhone anytime soon. In fact, there's a good chance we may never get to see it. Having said that, if this patent comes to fruition, we can all be excited about the future.
  13. The 2019 iPhone and rumours surrounding the device have now escalated, which has brought us new information about its features. Some may be true and some may not be a part of the final product. That's something we can never be sure of as rumours tend to be unreliable. Having said that, there are some rumours that keep popping up and eventually turn out to be true when the device eventually launches. Apple generally launches a new iPhone every year at its September hardware event and we decided to list down some of the features that may just come to the future iPhone: 1. Reverse Wireless Charging © Twitter Apple recently announced a new wireless charging case for AirPods and with the recent cancellation of the AirPower, we can expect the next iPhone to support some sort of bilateral wireless charging. Currently, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S10 offers this feature and can be used to charge other Qi-enabled devices. Samsung made the best use of this feature by letting the smartphone charge the new Galaxy Buds. 2. Triple Rear Camera© Twitter_Evenleaks We first saw a triple camera set up on the next iPhone in the form of a render way back in January and it seems like a recent schematic leak may have confirmed that claim. Schematics of the next shows the metal chassis of the phone which may be used for welding of the body. The rear cutout for the camera system is the most stand-out feature where there are three circular cut-outs for the camera lenses. If you want to know more, you can read all about it here. 3. A Smaller Notch © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Currently, iPhone XS, XS Max, XR and X use a notch on its display that hosts an array of sensors for FaceID. This allows the smartphone to map a user's face and unlock the smartphone based on the person's facial features. AMS, the Austrian company which provides Apple with optical sensors for the TrueDepth camera has developed a new sensor that can trace ambient light from behind an OLED screen. It also has a proximity sensor which is currently housed in the notch of the iPhone. There is a possibility than iPhones may now have a smaller notch as some of these sensors can now be embedded in the screen. Having said that, Apple still needs to put a selfie camera on the front which may be under a smaller notch. There's no certainty whether Apple will implement the new sensors in the 2019 iPhone however we are keeping our fingers crossed. 4. Bigger Battery © YouTube Currently, the iPhone XS features a 2,658mAh battery while the larger iPhone XS Max has a 3,175 mAh battery. The cheaper iPhone XR has a battery size of 2,942 mAh. That's not a lot if Apple is considering to utilise the reverse wireless charging feature. According to reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will be increasing the size of its batteries on all models of iPhones this year. This, in turn, will enable the iPhone to have enough juice to charge other devices like the new AirPods.
  14. If you've been wanting to buy an iPhone and were waiting for a discount, now is the time to get one. Apple has slashed prices as a part of a promotional offer and will be available only for a limited time. The offer is in association with HDFC and basically cuts the price down by a considerable margin with other offers such as cash back. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla For non-HDFC customers, the iPhone XR will be available for Rs 59,900 (64 GB) and for HDFC Bank customers at Rs 53,900 with a special cash back. The offer will be available from April 5th and will be on for a limited period. Do note that the MRP will not be changed on Apple's official website but the offer will still be valid. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The iPhone XR is one of our favourite smartphones from Apple's current portfolio that comes with the same processor as the iPhone XS/XS Max. The A12 Bionic is Apple's latest processor that delivers one of the most stable, fast and reliable experience. The iPhone XR does come with a single camera however it is still capable of taking portrait images and have some lighting effects as well. The iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch LCD screen making it slightly smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus and larger than the iPhone 8. If you are currently looking to upgrade from an iPhone 6/7/8, then the XR would be a perfect fit. The limited time offer has discounts on every iPhone XR model and here are the different pricing details: Promotional Pricing details â The 10% cashback on iPhone XR is available only on HDFC Bank Debit and Credit Cards â Customers can also avail a No Cost EMI loans from Bajaj Finance Ltd. and HDFC Bank Consumer Loans â The cashback offer has no downpayment since it is available only on credit or debit cards â Start date is Friday 5-April-2019 -for a limited time till stocks last â 10% cashback only for HDFC Bank Debit and Credit Cards â The 10% cashback is available for customers making: â Credit Card full swipe/EM1 â Debit card full swipe /EMI
  15. It has been a couple of years since Apple has launched a 'small' iPhone. The last small and compact phone from the company was the iPhone SE that came out all the way back in 2016. Well, if the new report is something to go by, then it looks like Apple might finally launch a compact iPhone next year. According to DigiTimes, Apple is readying new iPhones for 2020 with display sizes - 5.43-inch, 6.06-inch, and 6.67-inch. Looks like the company will be sourcing the displays from Samsung or LG. The current lineup, in case you're wondering, has display sizes of 5.8-inch (iPhone XS), 6.1-inch (iPhone XR), and 6.5-inch (iPhone XS Max). So, if it turns out to be true, Apple will reduce the size of the smallest model while increasing the size of the biggest model. © Unsplash We're not entirely sure as to what Apple is planning to call these new iPhones, though. But if we were to guess, then the smallest iPhone would be called iPhone SE2, which has been passing the rumour mill for quite some time now. But again, that raises questions about the names of other iPhones, so your guess is as good as ours, really.
  16. It seems like Apple may finally bring a feature from the Galaxy S10+ and Huawei Mate 20 Pro, now that AirPower has been cancelled by the company. The two smartphones currently offer reverse wireless charging that charge other devices on the go. It works with devices that support wireless charging such as smartphones and now true wireless earbuds. The Galaxy Earbuds can be charged by the Galaxy S10 using wireless charging technology and now Apple has also introduced a wireless charging case for the AirPods. © Apple In order to complement the new AirPods wireless charging case, it seems like 2019 iPhones will be able to do the same. According to the renowned analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will have the same feature enabled for its latest device and will sport a bigger battery too. This will enable the iPhone to wirelessly charge the AirPods and even the App Watch without ever having the need for a wired charger. In order to charge these devices, iPhones will have to increase the battery capacity so that it has enough juice to wirelessly charge other devices. Kup predicts that the 5.8” iPhone's battery would increase from 20 to 25%. The larger 6.5” model is expected to have its battery size increased from 0 to 15%, and the 6.1” variant would increase its size from 0 to 5%. © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Currently, the iPhone XS features a 2,658mAh battery while the larger iPhone XS Max has a 3,175 mAh battery. The cheaper iPhone XR has a battery size of 2,942 mAh which is currently not enough to support bilateral wireless charging. Source: 9to5Mac
  17. Apple has now started to manufacture the iPhone 7 in India which makes it the third device by the company that is being assembled locally. Previously, the company was assembling the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s in India as a part of the company's 'Made in India' initiative. © MensXP Apple said in an email to our sister website ET “We are proud to be producing iPhone 7 in Bengaluru for our local customers, furthering our long-term commitment in India,” According to Apple, two variants of the iPhone 7 i.e. 32GB and 128GB models will be manufactured in India and will sell for Rs 39,990 and Rs 49,990 respectively. The smartphone is being manufactured by Wistron, a Taiwanese contract manufacturer that will be assembling the iPhone 7 models. While making the iPhone 7 in India reduces the cost of manufacturing considerably, the Cupertino giant is not looking to slash the prices and instead use the extra funds for an aggressive marketing strategy in India. Previously, Tim Cook has admitted that the company has faced a decline in iPhone sales in emerging markets like India. The CEO attributed the struggle to issues like foreign exchange and “weak macro-transactions” which contributed towards slow iPhone sales in countries like India, Brazil and Russia. © MensXP iPhone 7 was launched by Apple in 2016 and features a 4.6-inch Retina HD Display. The smartphone is water and dust resistant and has a rating of IP67. The smartphone comes with a fingerprint scanner called “Touch ID” at the front and is powered by Apple's A10 Fusion chip.

  18. In a recent drop test, the iPhone XS Max proved to be tougher than the Samsung' Galaxy S10+ and won by a considerable margin. Having said that, both phones were not as break-resistant as much we hoped them to do however the iPhone XS Max proved to be tougher. © YouTube Apple generally does not reveal what it uses at the exterior of the XS Max whereas Samsung uses Corning's new Gorilla Glass 6 at the front of the S10+. The test was carried out by YouTube channel PhoneBuff where a machine was used to let the two devices fall from a height of 1 meter. Both devices were dropped onto their corners, front and back. If any of the smartphones are still functional, they are then dropped from a height of 1.5 meters for about 10 more times. Results The back of both smartphones broke but the Galaxy S10+'s back showed more damage than the iPhone XS Max. It won the first round where the iPhone XS Max could withstand more damage. When it came to corners, both devices did not experience any damage and was called a tie. © YouTube When dropped on the front, the iPhone XS Max suffered damage only on one particular quadrant of the screen whereas the Galaxy S10+ didn't perform too well. The in-display fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S10+ also stopped working whereas the FaceID remained unaffected. The iPhone won this round as well. PhoneBuff gave the overall win to the iPhone, with a score of 36. The S10+ pulled in a 34. If you would like to see the video for yourself, take a look below:
  19. Way back in January, an early render of the next iPhone was leaked by Digit based on rumours that showed a triple camera setup at the back. Even though it was an early render, not much could be confirmed at the time, until now. © Slashleaks A new image was posted to Slashleaks, that is basically the schematics of the next iPhone according to the anonymous leaker. It only shows the metal chassis of the phone which may be used for welding of the body. The rear cutout for the camera system is the most stand-out feature where there are three circular cut-outs for the camera lenses. © YouTube Of course, there's no way to verify the authenticity of the leak, hence we urge you to take this leak only at face value and not determine it to be the final outcome. Having said that, the schematic leak is eerily similar to previous reports where it shows the square camera bump as well as two smaller holes where one would house the flash. © Onleaks and Digit Apple may also be including a time of flight (TOF) sensor which is rumoured to use face depth mapping technology. If true, this would significantly improve the portrait image quality and accuracy. The TOF sensor can also be used for better-augmented reality features which we can already find on iPhone today.

  20. Anyone who owns an iPhone is spoiled for choices when it comes to accessories. Seriously, the sheer amount of accessories that are available for the iPhone is just insane. Of course, not all of them are worth splurging on. Some are really good, whereas the others are simply way too expensive or pointless. As an iPhone user, I've used a ton of accessories over the years. And today, I am going to be sharing a few of my favourite ones here. So, here are 4 best iPhone accessories you can buy in India - 1. Anker PowerWave Charging Stand © YouTube If you own an iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, XS, XS Max or the XR, then you should get a wireless charger to go with it. Of course, a wireless charger isn't a necessity, but it's very convenient to have one. Just have one of them on your side table or your work desk and you'll never have to worry about fiddling with the lighting cable for charging. Also, the one which I've recommended here is from Anker, and as you can see, it's a wireless charging stand which makes it easy to use your phone to glance at notifications, etc. You can also get a flat charger from Anker if you don't like a stand, and both of them support faster-charging speeds than other wireless chargers. 2. Apple Watch Series 4 © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla This one is a no brainer, isn't it? I mean, the Apple Watch is probably the best smartwatch out there on the market, and it's truly one of the best accessories which you can buy for your iPhone. From tracking your fitness metrics to keeping tabs on your heart rate, the Apple Watch Series 4 can do it all. It's truly one of the best companions for your iPhone. Apple Watch Series 4 (review) is Apple's latest offering, but even the older model, i.e., the Apple Watch Series 3 isn't too bad either. 3. Apple AirPods © Apple Apple received a lot of slack for removing the headphone jack from the iPhone, and rightfully so. Honestly, I'd still prefer a phone with a 3.5mm headphone jack over the one which doesn't have it. However, I am equally glad that Apple decided to launch the AirPods to go with the iPhones. Apple's AirPods are one of the best wireless earbuds you can get your hands on. Yes, they're expensive, but the sound quality, its design, and Bluetooth connection (including the seamless pairing process), makes it a great choice. The new AirPods 2 even have wireless charging support, so you can choose to splurge on that too. 4. SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive 64GB © Sandisk iPhones, as we all know, don't really come under the “budget” category of smartphones. So, buying a top of the line variant of the iPhone isn't exactly everyone's cup of tea. But don't worry, if you're running out of storage on your iPhone, then the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive will solve that problem for you. The drive, as you can see, has a regular USB-A end that will fit in most laptops and a lighting end that fits all iPhones that are currently on sale. With this particular accessory, you can load all your files and transfer them back and forth as you see fit. It's really an affordable way to expand the storage of your iPhone. Well, that wraps up my list of the best iPhone accessories which you can buy in India. As I said, there are a ton of other accessories for the iPhone, but these, in my opinion, are the ones which will truly help you make the most of your iPhone.
  21. If you are someone who likes to spend your fortune a little more lavishly, and things like holidaying around the world, stocking wardrobes with designer clothes aren't cutting it for you anymore, then Caviar has just the right thing for you. Meet Caviar's “Grand Complications Skeleton Diamond Edition” iPhone. Yes, that's the name of the phone and we aren't even complaining because it carries a rather hefty price tag of $23,380, which roughly translates to about Rs 16 Lakhs. Sounds like a perfect phone for spoiled Insta-kids? © Caviar So, what's with this phone? Why is it so expensive? Well, for starters, it's got a mechanical clock right in the middle of its back, complete with diamonds and gold plates. The phone's back has black engraved titanium, gold plating, and 252 diamonds. No, we won't judge you if you decide to sit and count the number of diamonds. The dial parts of the watch are made of platinum, and the dial itself is protected by sapphire glass. Also, the mechanical clock has nothing to do with the phone itself. It's not getting its power from the phone, so you'll have to manually wind the clock every 30 hours with the gold-plated crown. © Caviar Only 99 of these iPhones will ever be made, and you'll get to see which of the 99 Caviar iPhones you bought. Just to touch base on the pricing, the 256GB variant of this iPhone XS starts at $23,380 (Rs 16 Lakhs), whereas the top of the line 512GB iPhone XS Max variant will cost you as much as $24,530 (Rs 17 Lakhs). Besides the shiny exterior, there's nothing new about these iPhones. You're essentially buying the same iPhone XS which you'd buy from Apple itself. Don't worry, they ship worldwide and the delivery is free. © Caviar You can learn more about these iPhones here.
  22. There's been a lot of banter about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's camera prowess. My colleague reviewed the phone earlier this week and found it to be really good, but I wanted to test it out myself before passing my judgement, if any. So I decided to borrow our review unit and took it out for a spin. And boy, was I in for a surprise! I use an iPhone XR as my daily driver and I really like that phone, its cameras included. In fact, it has been one of my favorite phones to shoot pictures with lately. Given how much I like the iPhone XR's cameras, I wasn't expecting the Note 7 Pro to take me by surprise. But trust me, I was wrong. At first, I started capturing random pictures with the Redmi Note 7 Pro to get the hang of the camera and Xiaomi's camera app. Even when I wasn't really putting much effort, this phone managed to produce shots like this: © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Yes, it was at this point that I decided to pull out my iPhone XR out of curiosity to see how they compared. It was somewhat a gloomy day here in New Delhi, which I thought was just perfect to push these cameras to their limits. So, I did. Just take a look: Note: All photos captured from the Redmi Note 7 Pro have a watermark. The images used for comparison were shot on an iPhone XR. Also, none of these images have been edited in any way whatsoever. The images, which you see below, were shot from a metro station. Both phones did a really good job here, but I personally like the Redmi Note 7 Pro's photo mainly because of the colors. They're natural, and the overall image look a lot presentable with lots of detail. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Next up, I decided to go with a shot which, honestly, even a lot of flagship smartphones struggle with. As we all know, it's pretty hard to expose the subject when there's a strong source of light right behind or around the subject. But both the phones did great in this case. The fact that Redmi Note 7 Pro managed to make it just as good as the iPhone XR did, is truly impressive. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another one. The Redmi Note 7 Pro's image is the clear winner for me here. The focus on the subject is on point, and there's a ton of detail. Not that the iPhone's image is bad, but it's not something I would post on social media without doing a bit of tinkering unlike the Note 7 Pro's image. It's truly a stunning shot, is it? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Even as I was losing the light and things started getting more gloomy, the Redmi Note 7 Pro didn't fail to impress me. This is one of those images, which truly made me question the point of buying an expensive phone to get good cameras. Great dynamic range and really good exposure. Just take a look - © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another shot taken in low light/ artificial lighting. This restaurant is better known for its food than lighting, but the pictures aren't too shabby, are they? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer I can keep throwing in more images here from my gallery, but I think we've established a point here. No, I am not trying to pick a winner and justify my opinion. However, I must say that Xiaomi has done a phenomenal job with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. I mean, just Rs 13,990 for a smartphone that's capable of competing with big dogs like Apple's iPhone? Sign me up. Of course, I am not ready to ditch my iPhone, at least not yet, but the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a star. If you like taking pictures on your phone among other things and you don't want to burn a huge whole in your pocket, then the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a no-brainer. It's truly the budget king that everyone needs to beat. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla Well, that wraps up just about everything. Again, most of this is subjective since not all people tend to prefer the same kind of images. But as someone who loves taking pictures for Instagram and craves a bit of a self-validation, I really enjoyed my time shooting with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. If you're looking to check out more camera samples or want to learn more about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's overall performance, then be sure to check out our review of the phone.
  23. You can finally play your PlayStation 4 (PS4) games on your iPad or your iPhone via Sony's Remote Play App. The application was already available on Android, considering it was first launched on the Xperia Z3 way back in October 2013. It has taken Sony 4.5 years to get the same feature for iOS devices. © SONY In order to use this feature, you will need to update your PS4, download the RemotePlay app on your iOS device and pair the two. The controller layout is overlaid on the screen and if you want to play on your iOS device, it will work best when paired with a third party controller. You cannot pair the PS4 controller with an iPhone or an iPad unless your device is jailbroken. iOS is a huge platform and bringing the functionally will be a massive expansion for streaming games. There are plenty of MFi gamepads you can use in order to play PlayStation games on your iPad. You can use the SteelSeries Nimbus as a gamepad and map the controls exactly like on the PlayStation 4 controller. © Sony Having said that, you will not be able to play PS4 games remotely such as via a mobile network. You will need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi in order for the function to work. You will also need an iPhone 7 or sixth-generation iPad or later to make the application work with your PS4. The new update has been rolled out for the PS4 and in the 6.5 version of the update, users can also remap the 'X' and 'O' buttons on the controller. Japanese consoles have to use the 'O' button for the “Enter” command, however, you can now remap it to 'X' or the other way around.
  24. Donald Trump and Tim Cook have been making headlines all day today for a hilarious reason. During a conference at the White House, the US President accidentally referred to Apple's CEO as 'Tim Apple', instead or Mr. Tim Cook. ... here's the president of the united states calling tim cook, ceo of apple, "tim apple." pic.twitter.com/RTc45RFm5e — fake nick ramsey (@nick_ramsey) March 6, 2019 Goes without saying that it soon became a meme and social media is having a field day joking about it.

  25. MWC saw quite a few interesting and weird smartphones, however, the show was stolen by all the foldable smartphones that were announced. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked event, followed by a more practical foldable smartphone by Huawei called the 'Mate X'. As of now, foldable smartphones have been teased by various companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, LG, Motorola and others. Apple has considered making a foldable smartphone in the past and has also filed a patent that covers “Flexible Display Devices”, however, we have not seen anything from the Cupertino giant as of now. Even though Apple may just be the only manufacturer that has not flirted with a foldable prototype, it didn't stop Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak from wanting one. © LetsGoDigital Speaking to Bloomberg, Wozniak said that he really wants to get his hands on a foldable iPhone and wants Apple to be a leader in this segment of smartphones. “Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in a few areas such as Touch ID, (Face ID) and easy payment with the phone,” Wozniak said during the Bloomberg interview. “They're not the leader in areas like the folding phone, and that worries me because I really want a folding phone.” Apple is known to have surprises up its sleeve and we cannot be sure whether the company is already working on a foldable smartphone. Even though the Mate X and Galaxy Fold have been announced, the two smartphones are not yet ready for consumers. It's still quite expensive and is in the initial stage of development. Apple, on the other hand, is known to launch devices that just work and it may be too soon for the company to unveil its own foldable device. © LetsGoDigital Even if Apple does make a foldable iPhone, there's a good chance it may look like the image above. It's a render based on the patent filed by Apple and developed by LetsGoDigital. Do you want a foldable iPhone in the near future? Let us know in the comments. Source: Bloomberg
