Its Not Looking Good For The iPod

Could We See A New iPod Touch Soon?

With the iPad’s receiving upgrades we expected the iPod touch to also receive a nice upgrade since it still has many fans and a lot of people have been asking for them. Apple has disappointed us with no news regarding the iPod touch revival. It seems like there may not be any plans to release a new iPod touch despite fans asking for years.

New iPad Mini and AIR!

Apple Unveils Brand New Upgrades For The iPad Mini and Air

Apple has now updated its oldest products, the iPad Mini and Air. These devices were long overdue an upgrade and most people though that Apple simply forgot about portable devices in favour of just pushing iPhones and wearable technology.

However we now know that there will be new devices for sale very soon. Both of these brand new products will be brought up to date with the latest iPhones mainly the iPhone XS and iPad Pro.

Apple will be including the powerful A12 Bionic processor which has been quoted as being three times faster than the previous processor used in iPads way back in 2014. The iPad Mini will keep the same 7.9 inch screen that was featured in the last iPad Mini and the design won’t be changed too much due to positive reviews from the previous products size and design.

However the iPad Airs screen has increased in size from a 9.7 to 10.5inch screen, this makes one of the largest iPad screens available and it’s definitely significant increase in size.

The home button will return along with the Touch ID that many people know and love. This will be a big selling point since a lot of people didn’t want to use those features on the new products. Especially after they got used to how they work and function. So that’s a big positive for Apple even though it seems the only upgrades we will be getting are internal component upgrades.

The same chargers

The new iPads will also need the old lightning ports to charge instead of the new cross-platform USB chargers we see with the new iPhones. Again this a great idea because most people bought many other chargers for their old iPads and now they can keep the same chargers as back-up without having to purchase even more.

Even the screen quality itself has been upgraded with these new iPads. Apple has decided to include the True Tone Colour and allow support for the P3 colour system. These options were not featured on the older iPads. The older Apple stylus will also work on the devices but only the older ones. The new ones unfortunately don’t work so if it charges by the lightening port then it will definitely work.

Apples senior vice president Phil Schiller announced the following “Today the iPad family takes two big leaps forward with an all-new 10.5-inch iPad Air that brings high-end size, features and performance at a breakthrough price, and a major upgrade to the 7.9-inch iPad mini, which also brings Apple Pencil, Retina display and the A12 Bionic chip to the many customers that love its compact size.”

Cameras and storage

If you are wondering about the camera then both the devices have 8 mega-pixel rear cameras with a 7 mega-pixel front camera. They are also compatible with the Smart keyboard Apple recently released. Along with 64GB and 256GB storage options and 4G connectivity which soon will be upgraded to 5G but 4G is still completely fine and works incredible well for anybody.

Apple has cancelled its long awaited AirPower charging pad

airpower cancelled

Have you been waiting for Apple to release it’s “revolutionary” wireless charging pad? Well it’s official, AirPower has been cancelled and will never be released.

Apple has cancelled its AirPower wireless charger, saying that it was nigh on impossible for the company to achieve it’s usual “high standards” for the product, as announced via TechCrunch.

“After much effort, we’ve concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards and we have cancelled the project. We apologise to those customers who were looking forward to this launch. We continue to believe that the future is wireless and are committed to push the wireless experience forward,” said Apple SVP of hardware engineering Dan Riccio in a statement.

Apple first announced the AirPower charging system as part of its iPhone X event way back in September 2017. Apple revealed that wireless charging was going to be one of the new features of the iPhone X and the AirPower was going to be built to compliment that feature. Apple originally said the product would be released in 2018 but then nothing more was really heard about the product for a long time.

Apple claimed that the AirPower charging pad would be able to charge 3 devices at once – and was being aimed at those who owned an iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch. Apple touted the AirPower system as having special features such as a full charging area eliminating the need to find a sweet spot and a software overlay for the iPhone that would allows users to see how much power and charge time all 3 devices had or required.

Unfortunately Apple just couldn’t get it right. There have many reports citing issues such as overheating – due the charging pad having multiple charge coils – among others. But for a long time customers have been waiting and expecting the AirPower charging pad to be released. The charging pad had been mentioned in some Apple literature that comes with products such as the AirPods prior to the announcement back in 2017 and the Wall Street Journal even reported that the product had been green lit and gone into mass production. But alas, the product has now been officially cancelled and Apple owners will never get the AirPower Charging Pad.

iPhone 11 Works UNDERWATER! Leaked features

Brand new Leaked Features For the iPhone 11

Many people are unhappy with the look of the new iPhone 11. This new iPhone is being labelled by fans and critics as Strange, Ugly, and boring. However it’s not always about looks, Apple are some nice new features in Apples latest upcoming flagship smartphone

EverythingApplePro is a YouTuber that owns pretty much every single Apple device ranging from phones, iPads and even Apple TV. He reviews the latest Apple tech so his fans can make a judgement on whether the new devices are worth their hard-earned cash. He recently reported that the iPhone 11 will respond to touch un-like any other smartphone in existence.

He reports that the iPhone 11 is having some major upgrades to the hardware and software. Apple is working hard to improve the feel of touching the screen in all directions, adding better vibration motors to improve the feeling of typing and improving the speed of this device significantly compared to previous iPhones.

They have a high bar to reach following the S10 and S10 Plus, Samsung’s devices have revolutionised modern smartphones and Apple needs to bring some heat to their next unveiling event to keep fans interested in iPhones.

Touch improvements

IOS has a featured called ‘taptic’ that controls the tapping speed and the fluidity of moving through the phone from app to app.

“it will be expanded to cover a 3×3 grid across the new iPhone’s entire display as well as adding more precise vibrations so input response is more tactile on every part of the screen.” Said the EAC

This new upgrade to the tapping engine known as ‘taptic’ will bring brand new gestures, tapping speeds, and much better physical feedback when using the latest IOS system on the brand new upcoming iPhone 11 or iPhone XI.

Works underwater

The EAC also reported that Apples 2019 iPhone will work when completely submerged underwater. We don’t mean survive when taken out of water; we mean you can use your phone like normal even when it’s completely submerged. This means you can use your phone in bath and even take your phone swimming.

This works great for taking photos underwater which has become very popular for all types of people whether its marine life photos or family jumping into a holiday pool. But the most important and biggest issue for smartphones in the functionality when it’s raining. We all know that when our phones get wet we can’t move around the phone or unlock the device since water can fool the touch sensor into thinking there are multiple fingers on the screen at once.

The iPhone 11 will be fully functional even in heavy rain which means you don’t have to worry about wiping down the phone every few seconds in rain to make calls or read messages. Definitely a step in the right direction for Apple and the usability of the iPhones.

This feature will be an advantage if you hate the fact that you can’t use your phone underwater or for some people it isn’t much more than a gimmick.

Folding iPhone Leaks! Possible Release date!

The Folding iPhone might have years until its unveiling

With the incredible innovation Samsung has shown us with the Galaxy fold we knew it was only a matter of time until we see iPhones take on a folding design. Many patents and leaks suggest that Apple is going to try and make a folding smartphone but they won’t be able to show the device until at the very least next march.

Should Apple Make a folding device?

If the hype for the Galaxy X is anything to go off, then yes they definitely should. Being able to fold your phone into an IPad is very revolutionary and it can give those people the innovation they are looking for.

We all know that iPhone and Apple in general are very popular and seen as a sign of ‘wealth’ in public. The folding iPhone will be the most expensive Apple device we have seen especially if Samsung are charging £2000 for their folding phone.

The negative to this idea however would be regarding the iPad sales. The Folding iPhone would definitely make iPads themselves quite irrelevant and possible cannibalise them entirely. We won’t truly know the effects of a folding iPhone/iPad on the sales until we see the device for ourselves in 2020.

We are essentially looking at an iPhone that can turn into an iPad by just bending open the screen. For some this is going to be a must-have, for others it’s nothing more than a gimmick.

The evidence for the folding iPhone?

The folding phone rumours started as early as 2016 when it was discovered that LG had been helping Apple create folding screens specifically OLED screens.

LG is working closely with apple to improve the screens and make them actually bend without breaking or shattering. The production of these screens was said to have started this year so it’s possible they could have already began construction on these screens or at some point this year.

Patents

Apple has filed for a few patents that involve the designs for the new flexible displays. We can see a few different designs but they do have their issues regarding the pressure and size of the device.

We can see a clear issue regarding the screen which seems to suggest that the screen is at risk of cracking under cold-conditions. Meaning the device would need to be in a warmer location for it to properly open without breaking. There is also a latch mechanism which would stop the folding phone from opening if the conditions were not right, this would stop peoples devices breaking but adds a restriction to the phones key-feature, folding

However patents are not supposed to be set-in-stone, meaning that the phone will change drastically upon release.

Possible release date

Apple is always late to the party, by this I mean the following. Apple did not release the first smartphone; they did not make the first iPod or the first smartwatch either.

So it’s no surprise that they aren’t ready for the release of the Galaxy Fold and subsequently once again won’t be the first to develop a folding smartphone. However they usually keep up with crazes like the smartwatches, smartphones, tablets, computers etc.

So we will eventually see a folding iPhone, that’s 100% for definite, but unfortunately they only just started production this year so we could be looking at 1-2 years until we can purchase one of these folding phones.

Seeing as March is a popular time for Apple to release products, it is possible we could see the folding smartphone in March of 2020, 2021 or at most 2022.

That’s all the information we currently have on the folding iPhone but as more leaks emerge we are sure to get some new information soon.
