The New iPhone 11 Most Likely to Offer a Triple-Camera System for 2019

By | Apple News, iPhone News | No Comments

The release of the highly anticipated iPhone 11 is just a few months away from being presented to the general public. At this point, the new phone to be released this September is ready to go. As always, there are plenty of leaks that are all over the Internet, which create lots of buzz on what people think these new phones will feature this time around. 

As many Apple users know, the iPhones have not changed drastically from year to year after the first major changes. The iPhone 11 is expected to be pretty much identical to its predecessor iPhone X and the XS. The main difference- the large squared rear camera, which the public might not be ready for just yet given the appearance.

Of course, Apple should improve the bionic chip from the ultra-fast A12 to an even better performance system.  Rumor has it that there won’t be much of a shock and awe improvement besides improved battery life and faster functionality and performance. The new triple camera system will be the focal point of the iPhone 11 release for 2019. There are reports claiming the new third camera will add to the zoom quality with more capabilities with the ‘ultra-wide angle lens.’ Rumors are also circulating that the new iPhone 11 will feature wireless charging for AirPods and Apple Watches as well, similar to the existing Samsung’s Powershare. 

These are all speculations, of course, and there’s no way to be fully confident that these changes are what is exactly Apple is going to deliver this September. However subtle, these leaks are suggesting that the new phones will have some slight improvement with little change in the display or front side of the phone. These are the small experiments that Apple is constantly working on to give users a better mobile smart device each year, and 2020 is looking like it will be even bigger than this iPhone 11. 

Below is a sneak preview of a clone iPhone 11 with that strange, yet attention-grabbing triple rear camera.

iOS 13 Beta Reveals Changes to 2019 iPhones, Possible MacPro Launch Date Leaked 1

iOS 13 Beta Reveals Changes to 2019 iPhones, Possible MacPro Launch Date Leaked

By | Computer News, Apple News, iPhone News | No Comments

This summer is starting to see more new features and changes within Apple’s iOS 13 beta testing stages. These changes are becoming more evident with the reveals from some of the beta testers. It appears from reports that at least two changes are being hinted at, with one of them being more useful and potentially impactful than the other. 

Every year, WWDC brings exciting new developments and announcements with Apple technology. A recent discovery might be telling that USB-C will potentially be used on the 2019 line of Apple phones. 

iOS 13 Beta Reveals Changes to 2019 iPhones, Possible MacPro Launch Date Leaked 2

Photos posted of the latest iPhone with iOS 13 beta show the recovery mode screen with a white USB-C cable with a MacBook above it.  Apple appears to be in consideration of changing out the longtime Lightning port in exchange for a USB-C, which is growing in popularity due to it’s capabilities and convenience. 

Apple has already done so with the new 2018 iPad Pros and MacBooks; so this shouldn’t come as a surprise to consumers. Perhaps this means that Apple is intending to include this kind of cable as well as the 18W fast-charge USB-C adapter with the new 2019 phones. 

A feature that is not so new to Apple users, the 3D Touch, might be getting cut from future iPhones. These are only roumers as of late, but MacRumers are confident that Apple will take this feature away in this year’s lineup of phones. Any iPhone user since the 6S should be familiar with the pressure-sensitive feature that allows users to get more control options from pressing down harder on the screen.  The 3D Touch in the iPhone XR was replaced by a new Haptic Touch, which essentially just means that it’s a long-press of the screen with slight haptic vibrations. This will clear room for a larger LDC display. 

Aside from the iOS software beta reveals, Apple hasn’t stopped there. The company also might have leaked the Mac Pro launch date on the website. During the WWDC, they stated that the new MacPro and 6K displays would be available this fall with no specified date yet. By clicking the notify me link on Apple’s homepage, a prompt reads, “Coming in September.” 

Some largely followed sites like MacRumors and 9to5Mac posted this “leak” before Apple could fully correct this, and, of course, it spread across the interweb.

New Shortcut for iPhones Will Automatically Record Police Encounters - "Siri, I am getting pulled over" 3

New Shortcut for iPhones Will Automatically Record Police Encounters – “Siri, I am getting pulled over”

New Shortcut for iPhones Will Automatically Record Police Encounters

Smart phones are becoming more useful than ever before. 2018 was a big year for Apple with new features that are helping consumers live a better life, and the future is looking even better with fresh new technology available for Apple’s smartphone users. A new feature that has Apple users buzzing is an app called Shortcuts. This app allows users to stitch several apps to create a chain that can be activated by pressing a button, or even Siri.

New Shortcut for iPhones Will Automatically Record Police Encounters - "Siri, I am getting pulled over" 4

Robert Peterson of Arizona has developed a useful shortcut that will help save lives, and save money when it comes to the law. This one is called, Police, and it monitors encounters with police officers for you to have record of what happens.

Upon installing the shortcut and configuring it, all the user has to do is to say, “Hey Siri, I am getting pulled over.” The program will pause music, turn down the screen brightness, and activates the “do not disturb” mode. It will send a text to a selected contact, like a relative, significant other, or even a friend, to inform them that you’re being pulled over. The recording quickly begins by using the front-facing camera on the iPhone. When the recording stops, the file can be sent via email or text to the same, or different, contact and saved to Dropbox.

Peterson, the app’s developer, seems to believe that this could be a civilian equivalent to the police body cams. “It seemed to me that if you’re getting pulled over, it couldn’t hurt to have a recording of the incident,” Peterson states.

This shortcut is not only useful for helping people record their encounters with the men in blue, but it can also help in other potentially dangerous situations for individuals. For example, a female could use this shortcut to help them with a stalking issue with a nasty breakup between their significant other so they can quickly send their location to a family member if something happens.

The beauty of this useful app is that users can edit a previously designed shortcut to fit specific needs. You don’t need to be a programmer to create your own shortcut. If recording police encounters are top priority for using Shortcuts, the entire breakdown can be accessed within the Shortcuts app.

If you’re interested in making your own shortcuts, Petersen has some advice.

“The platform has a lot of potential, and if you read the Apple user guides and consult with others on forums, or just look at how other people’s shortcuts work and ‘reverse engineer’ them to your own needs, you can learn a lot quickly,” he said.

You can download the Police shortcut here. Make sure you have the Shortcuts app installed.
