• Apple just turned its extended warranty for the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch into a monthly subscription

    5 days ago - By The Verge

    Apple's extended warranty, AppleCare+ , has always covered iOS and Apple Watch devices for a total of two years. But after its iPhone 11 event, the company quietly introduced a new option that basically turns AppleCare+ into a full-on monthly subscription, allowing consumers to continue paying beyond the regular coverage period and keep going for as long as Apple is able to service their product. The change was spotted by 9to5Mac .
    Apple had already offered monthly installments for AppleCare+, but that was only an alternative to paying a lump sum for the same two-year coverage total. And...

    5 days ago - By Computerworld

    Apple is trading up 1.79% this morning on strength of its iPhone 11 announcements September 11. I've gathered together most available analyst and industry comment in reaction to Apple's news. How are iPhone users reacting?
    Analysts don't know everything and it's worth noting that interest in the new devices drove a 189% increase in trade-in valuations from iPhone users seeking to upgrade, according to data from BankMyCell. They warn that Apple's decision to reduce the cost of iPhone XR and iPhone 8 is also having an impact, predicting a 24.7% fall in resale value of the XR and 26.6%...

  • How Apple's A13 Bionic brings more battery life to iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro

    How Apple's A13 Bionic brings more battery life to iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro

    5 days ago - By Pocket-lint

    Apple announced the next-generation A Series SoC during its September event, but what does the new iPhone platform actually bring to the party? Naturally, Apple's Kaiann Drance described the 64-bit A13 Bionic as "the fastest CPU and GPU ever in a smartphone", but until we see some benchmarks, we can't tell how true this is. Apple showed a graph on screen at the launch that put performance ahead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 inside the US version of the Galaxy S10+ and the Kirin 980 inside the Huawei P30 Pro, but at this stage we have to take that with a pinch of salt until benchmarks...

    IPhone 11 looking too pricey? These cheap iPhone deals could be the perfect alternative

    5 days ago - By TechRadar

    The iPhone 11 has now officially been unveiled to the world and if you're a fan of Apple's devices, then we imagine you'll be in one of two camps. Either, you're keenly lining up for pre-orders this Friday or, you're patiently waiting for the deluge of older cheap iPhones. Luckily, if you're in the second camp, your time to strike is now. Price cuts and cheap deals are a big part of phone releases. Every year we see prices of older devices come crashing down and this year is no different for Apple. We're seeing cheap iPhones ranging from the iPhone 7 through to the iPhone XR, giving you...

    The iPhone 11 has kicked-off Round 2 of ‘affordable' flagships

    5 days ago - By TechRadar

    The new iPhones are finally here. They bring a lot of cools to the table, but at the same time, these upgrades can be called incremental for the most part. But as it always has been with Apple, it's more about the flagship experience than the flagship specifications... a phone greater than the sum of its parts. And for the next smartphone season, I foresee the iPhone 11 becoming the phone to beat , at least in terms of sales volume. By virtue of what these phones offer, undeniably, they are highly desired. Everyone wants a phone that just works well- No long loading times, reliable cameras...

    Apple iPhone 11 upgrade: the good, the bad and the ugly

    5 days ago - By GSMArena

    Yesterday Apple unveiled the iPhone 11 alongside the two iPhone 11 Pro models. Its predecessor was Apple's best selling phone so it has big shoes to fill.
    Despite the clever naming change, the iPhone 11 is the successor to the iPhone XR and not the iPhone XS. It has a lot in common with the iPhone XR and brings a number of improvements. But it also failed to bring some expected upgrades and actually has a downgrade or two.
    So let's take a dive into the iPhone 11 and see which is good, which is bad and which is straight up ugly.

    Apple is playing catch-up with the iPhone 11 camera

    5 days ago - By The Verge

    “Customers love iPhone because we focus on technologies that matter in their lives,” Apple's Kaiann Drance said when introducing the iPhone 11 yesterday. If that's the case, then Apple's competitors have been doing the same thing for even longer when it comes to the camera. What might previously have been dismissed as gimmicks are now headline features for Apple.
    The two biggest additions to the iPhone 11 camera system, the ultrawide lens and night mode, are commonplace on Android phones. That's not really relevant for most iPhone buyers, who just want a phone that runs iOS and will enjoy...
