Apple new models, how they are distinct mutually in specifications

As the matter of fact, new models of Apple are just revealed in the market and People are really in deep tension and confusion that what Apple has for them however They have a common though floating in their mind that the difference is just in the claims perhaps its not a case. We have elaborated detail features for our viewers to carefully realise the products specifications.

This article, iPhone XS vs. iPhone XS Max vs. iPhone XR:

Lets see What’s the difference?

Apple’s new iPhones aren’t one and the same.

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR are now fully revealed by Apple, and all of those announcements flew by fast. With the iPhone X now out of the Apple Store, your iPhone X choices for the next year boil down to one of these phones (though you could still get the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, or the iPhone 7).

All three new iPhones for 2018 share most of the same core features, but it pays to know how they’re different, and not just their price. (See chart below for pricing and specs.)

At Apple’s event today in Cupertino, California, the company revealed its newest lineup of iPhones, which include the iPhone X, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

The iPhone XS (pronounced “10-S”, not “excess”) features a 6.5-inch OLED HDR display, a faster and more efficient A12 Bionic chip and improved photos and video technology. Pre-orders start Friday and the phone goes on sale Sept. 21.

The iPhone comes in three different colors: gold, grey and black.

The iPhone XS has two 12-megapixel cameras on the back.

Screen size and display: 5.8, 6.1, 6.5 inches

The iPhone XS has the smallest physical footprint of the three, while the iPhone XS Max has an absolutely enormous screen, with 6.5-inches of real estate to gaze upon. The iPhone XR uses the LCD screens of Apple’s past, and lacks the pressure-sensing 3D Touch feature that debuted on the iPhone 6S. Instead, it uses haptic feedback like a trackpad when you long-press an icon on the display.

• iPhone XR: 6.1-inch LCD display, Liquid Retina Display pixel density of 326ppi

• iPhone XS: 5.8-inch OLED display, Super Retina pixel density of 458ppi

• iPhone XS Max: 6.5-inch OLED display, Super Retina pixel density of 458ppi

Materials

• iPhone XR: Aluminum body with glass front and back

• iPhone XS: Stainless steel body with glass back and front

• iPhone XS Max: Stainless steel body with glass back and front

Colors

• iPhone XR: Blue, coral, yellow, white, black, Project Red

Camera features

All three new iPhones have at least one 12-megapixel rear camera (with OIS) and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera that supports Face ID unlocking and Animojis. While the iPhone XR lacks a second rear camera, it uses software to take artistic portrait-style shots with background blur (called Bokeh).

Smart HDR is a new feature that applies to the trio, automatically detecting and fixing red-eye, calling out highlights and deepening shadows. Enhanced portrait selfie software also comes to all three new phones.

• iPhone XR: 12-megapixel camera (f1.8), 5X digital zoom, three portrait lighting effects

• iPhone XS: Dual 12-megapixel camera (f 1.8 wide-angle and f2.4 telephoto), 10x digital zoom, five portrait lighting effects

• iPhone XS Max: Dual 12-megapixel camera (f 1.8 wide-angle and f2.4 telephoto), 10x digital zoom, five portrait lighting effects

Battery life

Apple never shares specific battery capacity (usually measured in milliampere hours, or mAh), but does give guidance on how much longer than other devices it expects these phones to last. The iPhone XR could potentially have the longest battery life of the three, though we won’t know for sure until after we test all three phones.

• iPhone XR: Apple claims it will run 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus, the longest-lasting iPhone of 2017

• iPhone XS: Apple claims it will run 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X

• iPhone XS Max: Apple claims it will run 90 minutes longer than the iPhone X

Online store stock value touched $1 trillion and now close to Apple

Amazon is now not only synonymous with online shopping, but is also opening physical stores, owns the Whole Foods grocery franchise and runs a massively lucrative cloud-services business

Most advance warehouse in the World , Amazon takes the lead claiming advance warehouse in UK

According to a recent NPR/Marist poll, 92 percent of America’s online shoppers have bought something on Amazon. More than 40 percent said they buy something on Amazon once a month or more often. In fact, when people shop online, they’re most likely to start on Amazon, the poll found.

Amazon has said that more than 100 million people around the world pay for its Prime subscription.

By early afternoon on Tuesday, Amazon’s stock was trading at $2,030 per share, up less than 1 percent, putting its market cap at $990 billion

Amazon’s stock value briefly topped $1 trillion on Tuesday, a little over a month after Apple crossed the same milestone.

The tech and retail behemoth, founded as an online bookstore by CEO Jeff Bezos in 1994, has been consistently profitable only since 2015. In fact, Amazon profits have averaged $2 billion in each of the first two quarters of this year.

Turkey to shun US electronics including I-Phone (7.1 m users in Turkey) punitive amid rising trade tensions

Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan announced today that the country would boycott all electronics from the United States after President Donald Trump slapped new tariffs on the region that caused the Turkish currency (the lira) to hit an all-time low.

The announcement, which specifically targeted Apple, comes amid rising trade tensions between the two countries (and leaders), but it will barely touch the tech giant.

“If they have iPhone, there is Samsung on the other side. We have Vestel Venuüs in our country,” Erdogan said, referencing a Turkey-based smartphone manufacturer during the announcement to members of his national conservative Justice and Development Party.

“Together with our people, we will stand decisively against the dollar, forex prices, inflation and interest rates. We will protect our economic independence by being tight-knit together.”

The problem with Erdogan’s new strategy is that it will have a much greater effect on the Turkish people than any U.S. company. In other words, Turkey relies on Apple more than Apple relies on Turkey.

Only 2.08 percent of Turkish smartphone users owned a Vestel last December, while 17.41 percent owned Apple iPhones.

That means of the 41.09 million projected smartphone users in Turkey last year, 7.15 million of them used Apple, which is only 1.02 percent of the conservative estimate of more than 700 million iPhone users in the world.

 

Putting that into context, that means there are more than 8.5 times more iPhone users worldwide than there are people in Turkey.

The U.S. and China comprise Apple’s two biggest markets, so this would be a much bigger deal — for both Apple and America — if this electronics ban came from China. Of course, the U.S. is also feuding with over trade, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility.

Apple’s this quarter revenue beats all anticipations explicitly flagship product remained impressive

Apple Inc. delivered its best-ever revenue for the June quarter, typically its weakest period, as demand for high-price iPhones remained resilient and services like app-store sales swelled to all-time highs.

The results for Apple’s fiscal third quarter show how the world’s most valuable company is finding ways to grow amid a contracting global smartphone market that is roiling its rivals.

“Growth was strong all around the world,” Apple finance chief Luca Maestri said during an interview.

Though iPhone sales usually weaken in the spring and summer as anticipation builds for new devices expected in September, Mr. Maestri said demand has remained consistent, particularly for the iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus. “Customers are really valuing the features in the products,” he said. Shares of Apple, up 28% over the past year, rose 2.6% to $195.30 in after-hours trading.

Apple’s move to raise iPhone prices continued to pay off in the period with sales of its flagship product rising 14.4% to $29.91 billion even as shipments rose less than 1% to 41.3 million. Meanwhile, the company’s services business reported record revenue of $9.55 billion, a 31% increase from a year ago, strengthening the case that Apple is in the midst of a transformation from a device-driven business into one increasingly reliant on sales of subscriptions and software.

The combination drove total revenue up 17% to $53.27 billion in the latest period, above Wall Street expectations and near the high end of its own guidance. Profit rose 32% to $11.52 billion, or $2.34 a share, also above analysts’ consensus estimates.

Apple signaled it expects to sustain strong iPhone sales in the current quarter with a forecast for total revenue of between $60 billion and $62 billion, which would represent a healthy 14% to 18% increase from a year ago. The expected jump reflects a small boost from a trio of new devices the company is expected to release in September, analysts say, including an update to the $999 iPhone X, its first oversize phone with an organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, display and a 6.1” LCD phone with facial recognition technology.

The new phones are projected to be priced between $699 for the LCD device and $1,099 for the plus-size handset, according to UBS, potentially ensuring another year of higher average iPhone prices to lift Apple’s total revenue.

Analysts had estimated the $999 iPhone X made up one-quarter of total iPhones sold, which helped lift average selling prices per iPhone by nearly 20% to about $724.

Customer has to say about Iphone X

Most of the time I heard from Apple users that its nearly impossible to shift your self from iPhone to Android but we have different views this time and most of the people upon asking expressed that iPhone X enabled them to shift. Know the reasons

The iPhone X is an impressive piece of hardware, but with a starting price of $1000, it’s hard to recommend over some Android flagships on the market.

Image result for iphone X

Some of the specifications of the iPhone X include a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD resolution, IP67 water and dust resistance, a stainless steel frame, an A11 Bionic processor with 3GB of RAM, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with OIS, a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, stereo speakers, a 2716mAh battery, support for wireless charging, Face ID facial recognition software, and iOS 11.

Do you think the iPhone X is worth it?

So, is iPhone X — wait. Stop the review and rewind that. I can’t stick to being purely analytical with this one.

I’ve now spent a week with iPhone X as my primary device. So far, it’s the most fun I’ve had with any gadget since the original iPhone. I’m not being hyperbolic here. There are shortcomings. There are things I’d love to see changed. But I can’t stop using it. The new display is beyond gorgeous. HDR is glorious. Fluid navigation gestures are sublime. Face ID is so fast I’m forgetting I have a passcode. Attention aware interactivity is the bomb.

I’ll still walk you through all the little details and give you a ton of #protips. I’ll still share plenty of gripes. And I’ll update this review throughout the next week and month. But know that I’m going to be smiling the whole time. Because iPhone X might just be the best damn product Apple has ever made.

Another Customer said:

Thankfully, things are slightly different this year, but mostly just for the iPhone X. Apple’s most ‘out-there’ phone design yet instantly makes the X stand out, even though it’s been leaked to death in the past few months. Like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG V30, the screen on the iPhone X stretches right to the edges and the once huge bezel has been shrunk right down. It’s a striking, futuristic design that is so much more eye-catching than your typical iPhone.

The biggest design oddity will likely be the cut-out at the top that dips into the screen. This houses a myriad of sensors and the front-facing camera, and it looks a lot like the Essential Phone. It’ll be interesting to see whether or not having a portion of the screen blocked off will be annoying, but we suspect it’ll be easy to get used to. Both latest iPhones all have glass backs, which we do think looks nice but we’re not convinced about its durability.

China mostly banned Silicon Valley companies because of this reason

In such a tech era where everything is pinching towards digital medium, one cannot even imagine living life without websites such as Google, Youtube, Netflix or Twitter, China has banned all such foreign companies.

Ever since the Chinese Government banned Facebook in 2009, Mark Zuckerberg has been making annual trips there attempting to persuade its leaders to let his company back in. He learned Mandarin and jogged through the smog-filled streets of Beijing to show how much he loved the country. Facebook even created new tools to allow China to do something that goes against Facebook’s founding principles — censor content.

But the Chinese haven’t obliged. They saw no advantages in letting a foreign company dominate their technology industry. China also blocked Google, Twitter, and Netflix and raised enough obstacles to force Uber out.

Chinese technology companies are now amongst the most valuable — and innovative — in the world. Facebook’s Chinese competitor, Tencent, eclipsed it in market capitalization in November, crossing the $500 billion mark. Tencent’s social-media platform, WeChat, enables bill payment, taxi ordering, and hotel booking while chatting with friends; it is so far ahead in innovation that Facebook may be copying its features. Other Chinese companies, such as Alibaba, Baidu, and DJI, are racing ahead in e-commerce, logistics, artificial intelligence, self-driving cars, and drone technologies. These companies are gearing up to challenge Silicon Valley itself.

The protectionism that economists have long decried, which favors domestic supplies of physical goods and services, limits competition and thereby the incentive to innovate and evolve. It creates monopolies, raises costs, and stifles a country’s competitiveness and productivity. But this is not a problem in the Internet world.

china chip

Over the Internet, knowledge, and ideas spread instantaneously. Entrepreneurs in one country can easily learn about the innovations and business models of another country and duplicate them. Technologies are advancing on exponential curves and becoming faster and cheaper — so every country can afford them. Any technology company in any country that does not innovate risks going out of business because local startups are constantly emerging that have the ability to challenge them.

Chinese technology protectionism created a fertile ground for local startups by eliminating the fear of foreign predators. And there was plenty of competition — coming from within China.

Silicon Valley’s moguls openly tout the need to build monopolies and gain an unfair competitive advantage by dumping capital. They take pride in their position in an economy in which money is the ultimate weapon and winners take all. If tech companies cannot copy a technology, they buy the competitor.

Amazon, for example, has been losing money or earning razor-thin margins for more than two decades. But because it was gaining market share and killing off its brick-and-mortar competition, investors rewarded it with a high stock price. With this inflated capitalization, Amazon raised money at below market interest rates and used it to increase its market share. Uber has used the same strategy to raise billions of dollars to put potential global competitors out of business. It has been unscrupulous and unethical in its business practices.

Though this may sound strange, copying is good for innovation. This is how Chinese technology companies got started: by adapting Silicon Valley’s technologies for Chinese use and improving on them. It’s how Silicon Valley works too.

Steve Jobs built the Macintosh by copying the windowing interface from the Palo Alto Research Center. As he admitted in 1994, “Picasso had a saying, ‘Good artists copy, great artists steal’; and we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.”

Apple usually lags in innovations so that it can learn from the successes of others. Indeed, almost every Apple product has elements that are copied. The iPod, for example, was invented by British inventor Kane Kramer; iTunes was built on a technology purchased from Soundjam, and the iPhone frequently copies Samsung’s mobile technologies — while Samsung copies Apple’s.

Facebook’s origins also hark back to the ideas that Zuckerberg copied from MySpace and Friendster. And nothing has changed since Facebook Places is a replica of Foursquare; Messenger video duplicates Skype; Facebook Stories is a clone of Snapchat, and Facebook Live combines the best features of Meerkat and Periscope. Facebook tried mimicking Whatsapp but couldn’t gain market share, so it spent a fortune to buy the company (again acting on the Silicon Valley mantra that if stealing doesn’t work, then buy).

China opened its doors at first to let Silicon Valley companies bring in their ideas to train its entrepreneurs. And then it abruptly locked those companies out so that local business could thrive. It realized that Silicon Valley had such a monetary advantage that local entrepreneurs could never compete.

America doesn’t realize how much things have changed and how rapidly it is losing its competitive edge. With the Trump administration’s constant anti-immigrant rants, foreign-born people are getting a clear message: Go home; we don’t want you. This is a gift to the rest of the world’s nations because the immigrant exodus is boosting their innovation capabilities. And America’s rising protectionist sentiments provide encouragement to other nations to raise their own walls.
