We got a chance to look at Apple’s new flagship phone – the iPhone X, which is expected to arrive later this year.

What troubles most people about buying this device is the hefty price of $999. Whether it’s worth it or not, we’re going to leave this decision to you.

The X is an extremely beautiful device that features a stainless steel band, a glass back and a fascinating 5.8-inch OLED display. The screen is slightly bigger than iPhone’s 5.5-inch Plus-size, a bit thicker and less slippery than its predecessor.

The Cupertino-based company represented their “Super Retina Display” with 1125 x 2436 pixels of resolution, which is currently the highest-density screen ever implemented on an iPhone. Of course, Apple hasn’t omitted the 3D Touch feature and they have added True Tone automatic calibration for better visuals.

The Screen & Face ID

The phone’s display is the center of the focus with the iPhone X. Due to its design, Apple had to ditch the Home button, which became an integral part of the brand throughout the years.

Apple has focused their energy on creating a wonderful user experience with their latest iOS that would make the transit more natural. The Face ID Authentication looks absolutely fascinating, but whether it works perfectly as shown by Apple’s demo assistants, we’re about to learn in the upcoming months when the first clients start receiving their devices.

The new authentication system was made possible due to the TrueDepth camera system implemented at the top of the screen. At the same place, you can find the IR depth camera and a projector that throws about 30,000 infrared dots on your face.

According to Apple, the phone won’t unlock if you are not paying attention and when your eyes are closed. This means that the phone understands when you want it locked or not. The system learns your face and knows whether it’s you or not even if you are wearing glasses, hats or you’ve changed your hairstyle. Moreover, the system can’t be fooled with a photo of you. All in all, the system looks far more sophisticated than the ones we know about.

The lack of a home button means that there are new interface features you need to get the hang of. To wake up your phone, all you have to do is tap the screen or pick it up. Swiping up used to open the Control Center before, but now it helps you multitask. For the purpose, you swipe up to go home, then swipe up and hold to enter the app switcher. To open the Control Center, you have to swipe down from the right top edge. For notifications, swipe down from the top left corner.

For Apple Pay, you have to double-click the larger side button, authenticate with Face ID and then point the device to the reader.

Front Camera

The front camera now offers a variety of features, including animated emojis that react to your emotions. You can even control the new and even more fascinating filters in Snapchat.

The rear camera is the same as the dual-camera of the iPhone 8 Plus. It has a dual-lens camera with a brighter f/2.4 telephoto lens.

The back of the photo is a combination of glass and metal with dust and water resistance, including a wireless charging feature based on the Qi standard. For the moment, Apple is selling charging pads from other brands until the new AirPower hits the store next year.

According to company representatives, the iPhone X lasts two hours longer than iPhone. They claim that the A11 Bionic chip with two cores is showing incredible performance.

Just like we thought, there’s no headphone jack so you better start saving for Beats X or AirPods. The iPhone X will arrive in November and we can finally but Apple’s claims to a test.

iPhone X, also known as iPhone 10, is the company’s newest flagship phone that features a whole new design and a fascinating Super Retina display. The screen is edge-to-edge 5.8-inch OLED panel with 2436 x 1125 with HDR support.

The famous home button is now a thing of the past as Apple revealed a new 3D scanning system known as Face ID, which unlocks your display using facial recognition and eliminates the need for the home button.

From now on, the phone is much faster thanks to its A11 Bionic processor, which is far more superior than the previous generation chip.

Charge your phone with a wireless charger and enjoy your conversations even more with the animated emoji feature for messaging.

The phone features a dual 12-megapixel rear camera with dual image stabilization and an improved front camera. According to company’s representatives, the iPhone X will last for two more hours than the iPhone 7.

The company revealed a new AirPower charging mat that can charge your Apple Watch, AirPods and iPhone X simultaneously. There’s one slight drawback, whatsoever, and it is that the charging pad will be available starting next year.

The new iPhone will be available in space gray and silver, whereas the storage will be 64GB for $999 & $256GB for $1,149. For those eager to get the phone early – pre-orders will start on October 27th, whereas shipping will start on 3rd of November.

Along with the flagship smartphone, the company also revealed the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which can be considered as improved versions of their predecessor. These phones feature a glass back for wireless charging, highly powerful A11 Bionic processor, improved cameras and other minor improvements.

The new Apple Watch Series 3 comes with LTE connectivity, which means that it shouldn’t be connected with the phone to have access to the internet. The watch will work with the same phone number as the iPhone, which means that your calls, messages, and music will sync easily.

The watch has a similar design to its predecessor but it’s far faster thanks to the whole new W2 chip. According to company’s representatives, the new chip will give up to 18 hours of work life.

It will be available from September 22nd at $329 without cellular and $399 with the internet.

If you’ve ever owned an Android phone – and chances are good that you have, seeing as the pricey iPhone is its only real competitor at this point – you have undoubtedly heard of these “launcher” apps. What they do is they allow for additional customization options and functionality that you may not be able to find in a stock launcher that the phone manufacturer provides. Using them is as simple as downloading an app from the Play Store and setting it as a default launcher in settings. Whether you generally dislike your phone’s stock launcher or have just grown tired of it over time and want a change of pace, there are many launchers to choose from. One, however, has set itself apart from the competition over the years: the Nova Launcher.

The Nova Launcher is one of the most popular custom Android launchers currently found on the Play Store. This handy piece of software owes its reputation to the fact that it prioritizes functionality, supports plenty of customization options and receives frequent updates. That said, it is no surprise that the Nova Launcher started receiving new Android Oreo features so quickly after it launched. So, what’s new in the latest version of this app?

The biggest and most notable addition is the Android Oreo’s new adaptive icons. As the name suggests, it provides additional customization options for icons, allowing the user to maintain style consistency across all app icons. This is achieved by taking the base icon and blending it with a background of a specific shape. At the moment, these include circles, squares, teardrops, along with rounded squares and “squircles”.

This new feature is quite important for giving your device a personalized and consistent feel. The unsightly clashing of icon styles had long been a problem for Android users, and adaptive icons are finally a reliable way to fix that. Not only does it give the same background to every icon, but it also masks the dated legacy icons and icons that have no background at all. The results are much better than what you’d come to expect if you used similar features with some other launchers, as the Nova Launcher intelligently picks the most fitting background color based on the dominant color of the icon itself. The best thing is, the feature is supported for all devices running Android 5.0 Marshmallow and up, so even if you own a somewhat dated device which did not receive the recent OS updates, you can still experience some of the latest Android features.

Other than that, there have been no major new features added to the launcher for now. Apart from the adaptive icons, the only changes so far are a number of fixes and optimizations meant to make the app more stable and run better on the latest revision of the Android OS. However, given the Nova developers’ penchant for frequent and swift updates, it is certain that they will introduce more new features and optimizations in the near future.

Back in the days, viruses were known only to computer users, while now mobile phones have become as vulnerable as them. Currently, there are many security applications, specially created for the protection of the smartphone, that will protect your information from cyber thieves.

If you wish to improve your security, you have to buy a state-of-art application. For the purpose, we highly suggest buying only from approved merchants such as Apple’s AppStore or Google Play. The uploaded applications are under strict monitoring, and there’s little to no chance of having a virus that could harm your device.

Moreover, users must be cautious when browsing the Internet. Malicious websites could trick you into clicking or downloading something that could infect your phone.

Hackers often use the Bluetooth to connect to the target’s phone as it gives immediate access. Don’t forget to turn it off when you are in public places because you never know who’s around you. Note that mobile viruses are rapidly increasing and they are becoming more advanced than ever.

You can never rest assured that your phone is absolutely protected. Thus, you have to maintain a backup of your information, photos, applications, and contacts on separate devices that can be hardly breached. Remember, that having a password on your device is an extra layer of security that you must have.

Download a professional software to protect your personal information because it could cost you more than you thing. When you get one, remember that it has to be frequently updated or else viruses will easily breach and infect your phone. Popular mobile security applications include:

  1. Kaspersky
  2. Intego
  3. Trend Micro
  4. Norton
  5. McAfee

Jailbreaking your phone means that you no longer wish to be protected by the manufacturer as their security will cease to work. For example, car manufacturers often put a speed limit to protect the driver from driving with a speed that’s hard to handle.

You must be extremely cautious when browsing the internet as it is a dangerous place, where vulnerable phones are first on the list of targets. If you are a person who cares about his personal information, then it is time for additional security measures. Losing your information to hackers can mean only problems for you. By having your sensitive information, they can turn your whole life upside down!

Apple’s charging cables are notorious for the lack of durability, but that’s a common thing for many manufacturers. That’s why, many Android mobile device creators have decided to go with the wireless charging solution, but it’s something that Apple has been delaying for quite some time.

Recently, Apple started manufacturing their iPhones in India and the company dealing with this is called Wistron. This week, the company’s CEO Robert Hwang revealed that the new iPhone would be more waterproof than ever and it will include a wireless charging feature.

Manufacturing iPhones is a complicated process that requires lots of expertise, and that’s why Wistron focuses only on the iPhone SE at the moment.

Another sign that Apple plans to announce wireless charging for their next flagship smartphone was the note from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at KGI Securities, who predicted this new feature not long ago. Soon after that, a photo was leaked, which showed a large pad installed in an iPhone that looked exactly like a wireless charging antenna. Moreover, a couple of days ago, a Reddit user leaked a photo of back panel made of glass, which is a must for wireless charging.

While waiting for the latest iPhone, we recommend trying the Apple Music application, which would connect you with your favorite performers and their songs. This week, Apple added a $99 annual subscription plan that offers a $20 discount for those who wish to use the application for the next twelve months.

Even though that there are many rumors on the Internet, we won’t know anything in specific as the Cupertino-based company loves to surprise their fans and change their plans at the last minute.

iPad is one of those devices that everyone praised when it was released. In recent years, we see a substantial decline in sales and things aren’t looking good for the device.

At the WWDC 2017 Keynote, Apple revealed the new iPad Pro , which is far more powerful than before. It hasn’t evolved into a laptop yet, but it can’t be called a simple tablet as well. The new 10.5-inch iPad is here to change its future, and it has become better with the new iOS 11.

I. Improved Dock

The new dock implemented in the iPad is similar to the Mac’s. It allows you to choose between a variety of applications, and it can be easily accessed from within an app. Moreover, the last app in the row changes depending on your habits.

II. Drag & Drop

Since the beginning, Apple has been using one pretty annoying feature, which used the magnifying glass to copy and paste stuff. It hasn’t disappeared fully on the new iPad, but now there’s a drag & drop feature implemented that makes moving photos & text quite easier.

III. Multitasking

The app switcher has become far more sophisticated than before. Now, you see not only all apps opened, but you will have control center shortcuts that can be rearranged the way you want them to be.

 IV. Refresh Rate is now a thing

 Back in the days, consumers never worried about the refresh rate on computers, nor tablets. However, the new iPad Pro auto adjusts the refresh rate based on what activity you are performing. This would considerably enhance the way you experience movies and games. Moreover, it could result in battery savings as it won’t take so much power on activities that don’t require it.

The latest changes on the iPad Pro are focused largely on productivity as the company tries to make the tablet more of a computer than a larger phone. The newest iPad can soon become a competitor to the MacBook as it is light, with a nice battery life and it offers a user-friendly interface preferred by many!
