iPhone XS Max Beats Battery Test, App Store Scams, iPhone XR Fights iPhone XS




<div _ngcontent-c14 = "" innerhtml = "

After another week of news from Cupertino, the Apple Loop this week includes major battery issues for the iPhone XS, thoughts on the iPhone XR, a hidden price hike for The iPhone 8, Sneaky Subscriptions in the App Store, MacBook Pro Discounts and Custom Watch Face for the Apple Watch.

Apple Loop here recalls some of the many discussions surrounding Apple over the past seven days (and you can see my weekly summary of Read Android News here on Forbes.

iPhone XS Max Has a Big Battery Problems

There's a lot of talk about iPhone battery once you start using a controlled test system, and everytime on If you can accurately replicate multiple handheld devices, comparing apples to oranges will be a bit easier, and PhoneBuff has done just that and lost the iPhone XS Max Note 9 ̵

1; as soon as XS Max hits zero Note 9 still has 37 percent. Forbes' Gordon Kelly reports:

First, while the iPhone XS Max has a smaller battery, it's only 20% smaller (3,174 mAh vs 4,000 mAh). Second, the touch 9 has a higher resolution and driving pixels is the most demanding thing a phone does. Third, the Note 9 Snapdragon 845 chipset is less efficient than the remarkable Apple 12 chip in the iPhone XS Max.

All this points to the software. Apple claims that iOS 12 is the fastest and most efficient generation of iOS to date. Apparently not.

iPhone XR is fighting iPhone XS [19659001] As Apple launches pre-orders for the iPhone XR, consumers may , who have so far refused to buy the more expensive iPhone XS and XS Max, compare the two iOS-based alternatives. Once you highlight the similar features, there are only a few differences to note, the largest is the screen:

Yes, both phones have giant screens over 6 inches. But while Apple goes into town with a high-resolution OLED panel on the iPhone XS Max, the company is lowering costs on the iPhone XR with a relatively low LCD screen that can not display native Full HD content (1080p). Apple is also removing its pressure sensitive 3D touch technology from the XR.

… The iPhone XR has a 326 ppi that's just as dense as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (which also use LCD) and nobody complained about their panels. The iPhone XR also fits the premium models of other features: Dolby Vision / HDR10 compatibility, so it should still be good for Netflix, "120Hz Touch Sensing" for faster touch recognition and True Tone for accurate colors.

iPhone 8 gets sneaky price rise

One reason why Apple continues to be financially successful is the reduction in bills on its cell phones while keeping the price as high as possible. As Tim Cook and his team push the message of consumer-friendliness, companies in the background are weakening user flexibility while maximizing profits. I talked about the last move earlier this week for those who bought the older Phone 7 and iPhone 8 phones:

You will not find the Lightning Port to 3.5mm cable adapter bundled in the retail box. If you are looking for the adapter to connect your favorite headphones, you will need to make an additional purchase.

Undoubtedly, Apple hopes that those who want to use headphones can be persuaded to use wireless headphones. and I would expect that every employee of the Apple Store would do his best to sell a number of AirPods instead of the dongle to a customer, keeping them ever closer to Apple's ecosystem.

Sneaky App Subscriptions In The Apple Store

It was also not a great week for Apple's customer-focused activities. John Koetsier of Forbes has investigated the problem of subscription apps that automatically burden customers on a regular basis. The problem is that some of them are "shameful", resulting in unexpected and very high fees on customers' credit cards.

"Users open the app and quickly tap" Start "or" Next "the first page," [iPhone owner Julie Plumb] emailed me. "Unfortunately, this loads the Apple Payment Request instead of launching the free app, As most users would expect, users will panic and press the home screen to exit the app – unfortunately on fingerprint devices this will make the payment or sign up for the free trial. "

Needless to say , $ 4 / week for a very, very, very simple barcode scanning The device is completely ridiculous. $ 156 / year is adjacent to criminals.

Sarah Perez of Techcrunch also took up the story this week and increased the pressure on Apple (which would, of course, account for the usual gross revenue for each subscription): [19659004] However, the company has recently been more focused on getting developers to do it bring out subscriptions – even hold "secret" meetings that propagate the business model that brings a lot of money to the developers (and thus Apple itself). Meanwhile, a good handful of apps have thrived on bad actors.

Koetsier has read Apple's changes this week, and it seems the negative press has led to immediate and drastic action – all apps that use the subscription service attract much more attention from shop moderators:

"You downloaded apps and rejected apps that have a massive button that says" X days off "without the price in this button," says another developer. "People do not read the fine print and that's what they're looking for, but before they were lenient, but with the negative publicity, they are now as strict as hell."

Where is the story now? Apple apparently waited until the ad got too intense before acting. That the action happened is good. That it was needed first refutes the notion that the App Store is a safe place, with Apple putting the customer first.

Today, most of the apps I mentioned in my original story are no longer available.

Koetsier observes that exactly. You can follow him here on Forbes.

Apple's Hidden MacBook Pro Discount [19659001] Although it's never explicitly called on its website navigation Not only does Apple's "Refurbished Store" provide a solid discount to customers, it also helps in returning units and increases the overall margins that a family of hardware can deliver. It is also a good indicator of devices that might be ready to leave the frontline and be replaced with newer models. Therefore, the completion of the 2018 MacBook Pro machines with TouchBar in the refurbishment area worth mentioning, not only for the price reduction. Joe Rossignol has the details:

A refurbished base model with a 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB flash memory, 8GB of RAM, and Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 is available for $ 1,529 in the US Savings of $ 270 from Apple's regular price of $ 1,799. Available surfaces include Silver and Space Gray.

A refurbished maximed-out model with a 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 2TB of flash memory, 16GB of RAM, and Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 is priced at $ 3,139 in the United States $ 560 against Apple's regular price of $ 3,699. This configuration is currently limited to Space Gray.

And finally …

The Apple Watch has a growing problem. It's not very good as a watch – especially look at the dial and realize that you are not fast the time in the same way as you can with just about every other watch in the world. Apple thinks it knows best, but many argue in this case it's wrong. Marco Arment writes:

The Apple Watch is an amazing performance of the technology. It is a computer. It can show everything. With no mechanical or physical limitations that could hold us back, any design could be designed by anyone with a dial that provides a range of creativity, style and utility that no one company could ever design themselves.

But they won't let us. At a time when personal expression and innovation is booming in watchmaking, they are eroded instead, as everyone in the room always wears the same watch with the same two faces.

Chance Miller is one of many calls for third-party watches to become part of the Apple Watch ecosystem:

Personally, I think it's absolutely time to see watches on the Apple Watch. Opening up the process to additional developers and designers will undoubtedly yield some very useful and visually appealing faces. However, I think Apple would need a fairly strict approval process for the third-party dial.

For example, many classic watch face designs are protected by their original creator, and Apple would have to go a fine line to ensure that third-party creations for Apple Watch do not violate any of these designs.

The call to action is 9to5Mac.

iPhone XS Max Has A Bigger Problems With The Battery

There's been a lot of talk about the life of iPhone batteries: Once you use a controlled test system and can replicate exactly on multiple handsets, the comparison of apples with oranges is a bit easier. Pho neBuff has gena That's done, and the iPhone XS Max loses against the Note 9 – as soon as the XS Max reaches no more battery charge, the grade 9 still has 37 percent.
