Apple reportedly shelves 'walkie talkie' iPhone feature

Apple reportedly shelves 'walkie talkie' iPhone feature Apple has put its plans for a 'walkie talkie' iPhone feature on hold, The Information reports. The technology would have allowed people with iPhones (in a certain vicinity) to send messages over long-distance radio waves when cellular networks weren't available. It would have functioned a bit like a walkie talkie for text messages and allowed iPhone users to communicate in remote areas. This is the first time we've heard of the technology, which went by Project OGRS at Apple. It reportedly used the 900 megahertz radio spectrum, often used by the utility, oil and gas industries. Sources told The Information that it was designed to use Intel cellular modems.

The new iPhone 11 , iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max indeed feature many of the things we Those were all surprises, but the biggest surprise on Tuesday was the new starting price. On top of that , the radio and licenses needed for 5G compatibility are still hugely expensive for manufacturers

Apple fans will deny it , but the iPhone 11 is missing a feature that ' s hugely important . All 2019 iPhones are going to feature a new R1 sensor coprocessor codenamed “Rose,” according to MacRumors, which might officially be called R13 to match the A13 CPU that will power the devices.

After months upon months of leaks and rumors, Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup is finally official. Were there any surprises left after all those leaks? Shockingly, there were plenty! The new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max indeed feature many of the things we saw in insider reports leading up to Tuesday’s big press conference. But leakers who are typically reliable got so much about the new iPhone lineup wrong. The phones’ new designs were pictured dozens and dozens of times, but no one nailed it. The camera arrays look totally different, the finish on the back is totally different, there’s no new color with a “shimmer” effect like all those Chinese smartphones, and the old mute switch has not been replaced by a tiny toggle like the one on the iPad Pro. As for features, mistakes were made there as well. No one leaked things like Spatial Audio or Slo-Mo Selfies, and the reverse wireless charging feature we heard so much about is nowhere to be found.

There’s a very simple explanation for one of the iPhone 11’s most peculiar design changes

There’s a very simple explanation for one of the iPhone 11’s most peculiar design changes Apple will unveil the iPhone 11 series on Tuesday, with all three new iPhones expected to look exactly like their predecessors when it comes to the screen design. Things change on the back where the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro will feature square camera modules with dual or triple cameras. The back of the three handsets will also feature a peculiar change, one that loyal iPhone users will immediately observe. The Apple logo will be placed right in the middle of the handset, some leaks claimed, which is slightly lower than the usual position.

That ’ s probably what will happen regardless of when Google launches the Pixel 4. Of note, the iPhone 11 will have been selling in stores for nearly a month by the time Pixel 4 is available to buyers. Apple fans will deny it , but the iPhone 11 is missing a feature that ’ s hugely important .

Now that the iPhone 11 and its Pro counterparts are official, Apple ’s biggest rivals will soon unveil its brand new devices that will compete directly with the new iPhones . We’re looking at the Pixel 4 from Google and the OnePlus 7T series from OnePlus. But it ’s Huawei that ’ s making the most important

Those were all surprises, but the biggest surprise on Tuesday was the new starting price. Apple’s iPhone 11, which is the next-generation version of the iPhone XR, starts at just $699. It might seem crazy to read the word “just” ahead of a $699 price tag on a cell phone, but that’s a $50 decrease from last year’s model and it makes Apple’s new iPhones even more accessible. And speaking of paying a small fortune for a smartphone, there’s one thing from yesterday’s big event that didn’t come as a surprise, but it’s a huge disappointment and it’s something most people should consider if they plan to buy a new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max.

Most of our iPhone coverage on Tuesday discussed features that the new iPhone 11 series does have. The new designs are sleek, the new cameras are impressive, the power improvements are going to give performance a big boost, and there’s plenty more to be excited about. In fact, you can read about the 10 best new features of Apple’s iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max right here. But now, let’s talk about something important that the new iPhones don’t have: 5G.

Apple's iPhone XR and iPhone 8 get big price cuts

Apple's iPhone XR and iPhone 8 get big price cuts If you're not jumping straight into the future with Apple's new iPhone 11 family, picking up a slightly older model is one way to upgrade without spending a lot of money. Now that the new phones have been announced you can pick up the previous gen for even less, now that price cuts have been announced for the iPhone 8 and iPhone XR. The two year-old iPhone 8 now starts at $449 without any sales or discounts, while last year's mainstream model, the XR is available for $599.

That ’ s probably what will happen regardless of when Google launches the Pixel 4. Of note, the iPhone 11 will have been selling in stores for nearly a month by the time Pixel 4 is available to buyers. Apple fans will deny it , but the iPhone 11 is missing a feature that ’ s hugely important .

Apple fans will deny it , but the iPhone 11 is missing a feature that ' s hugely important . Apple will unveil the iPhone 11 on Tuesday, September 10th at 10 AM PDT / 1 PM EDT. We’ll be writing about all of the big reveals right here during the event, so be sure to check back in tomorrow.

Now, savvy readers with knowledge of the current state of the wireless market might initially disagree with the notion that Apple’s new iPhones should have 5G. After all, 5G coverage is almost nowhere to be found right now. On top of that, the radio and licenses needed for 5G compatibility are still hugely expensive for manufacturers, and that added expense is passed along to the end-user. Apple’s new iPhones cost as much as $1,449 without 5G, so it might seem crazy to suggest that Apple should’ve added something that would drive prices up even higher.

The simple fact of the matter is that in 2019, smartphones don’t need 5G. Spending the extra cash on a 5G phone might even seem crazy right now. But all you have to do is walk outside and look around for a few minutes and you’ll see why it’s a huge problem that Apple’s new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models are missing 5G.

Most people out there aren’t tech fiends. They’re not early adopters who need the latest and greatest gadgets and are willing to pay top dollar each and every year for a new smartphone. Walk around in a mall or on a city street and you’ll see tons of people with older iPhone models like the iPhone 7, or even the iPhone 6s. I personally know several people who still use the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus phones that were released all the way back in 2014. That’s 5 years ago!

After Apple event, iPhone memes popped up faster than you can take a 'Slofie'

After Apple event, iPhone memes popped up faster than you can take a 'Slofie' Apple unveiled the new iPhone 11 at its annual media event Tuesday, and people were quick to make their feelings about the model known on Twitter. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Here's what some of them had to say: The phone comes in three versions: The iPhone 11 and the higher-end iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The basic phone, at $699, is cheaper than many previous iterations of the iPhone.

People keep their smartphones for longer and longer these days, and 5G compatibility will be an absolute necessity within the next couple of years. As I mentioned, there are some people keep their iPhones for 5 years or even longer. Can you imagine someone in 2024 with an iPhone that doesn’t work on 5G networks?

iPhones are built to last. It’s one of the best things about them, in fact, but Apple is shortchanging customers by omitting 5G from its higher-end iPhone 11 models. If you’re paying $699 for an “entry-level” flagship smartphone in 2019, it’s understandable that it would lack 5G support. But when you get up to the pricier iPhone 11, the $1,000 iPhone 11 Pro, or as high as $1,449 where the iPhone 11 Pro Max tops out, your new smartphone should absolutely have 5G support.

With Apple's big iPhone 11 release now behind us and the phone series selling quite well by all accounts, attention now turns to next year's new iPhone. While some might think that the iPhone 11S and iPhone 11S Pro are slated for launch in 2020, that's not how Apple operates anymore. Instead of the two-year iPhone release cycle Apple has been using ever since 2008 and 2009 when the iPhone 3G was replaced by the iPhone 3GS, Apple now releases iPhones on a three-year cycle. It all started with the iPhone 6, a phone with a design that was used not for two but for three consecutive years.
