Apple has been heavily investing in original content to bolster its upcoming streaming service offerings. However, just like its brand image, Apple is looking for risque free content without nudity, sex, bold storylines, and any political or religious influence. It also does not want dark content on its platform and is looking for uplifting content.
iOS 12.1 Will Bring the Impressive Depth Control Feature While Taking Photos to iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
When Apple unveiled the iPhone XS and iPhone XR earlier this month, it highlighted the new Depth Control feature on the devices. The feature allowed users to change the amount of depth/blur effect applied to a photo after it was shot. Now, Apple seems to be working on improving this feature with iOS 12.1 by allowing users to change the depth effect while taking a picture.
DPReview reports that some iPhone X users are reporting that iOS 12 significantly degrades the quality of their display. Reddit user shannister reports “slightly washed out screen, colours popping less and blacks appearing more greyed out” after installing the iOS 12 update.
iOS 12 is all about performance improvements and those nice little features that make the OS easier and more convenient to use. But what about battery life? Apple did not claim any battery life improvements with iOS 12 but if early test results are anything to go by, the performance improvements brought about by iOS 12 actually come at the expense of battery life.
The life of an iCloud Keychain user is pretty seamless. They can easily autofill usernames and passwords in Safari and in apps as well. In iPhone apps, the process happens automatically! Because the Face ID scan happens on its own, there’s no need to physically press a button either! Now, the same seamless experience will be available to users of third-party password managers like 1Password and LastPass as well!
Like every new software update, iOS 12 is filled with some awesome new stuff. And some not so awesome new stuff. While the new Siri automation features and group notifications are a huge improvement, there are parts of the features that can be annoying (at least for a subset of iPhone and iPad users).
When Apple unveiled the Apple Watch Series 4 alongside the iPhone XS, it made quite a bit of noise about the wearable’s new fall detection feature. The company claimed that the fall detection feature on the Apple Watch Series 4 will automatically detect a fall and call their emergency contact if they did not move in an hour.
The iPhone XS is a modest upgrade over the iPhone X. The iPhone XS Max only offers a bigger display and better battery life than the iPhone XS. Both phones are exorbitantly expensive. And then there’s the iPhone XR which is coming next month and is a few hundred dollars cheaper than the other two iPhones.
The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come with a Gigabit LTE modem which at least on paper makes them significantly faster when compared to the iPhone X. How much of a difference does it make in real life though?
