You might remember a now famous video from 2014, dated September 19th. Yes, that was the day that the Apple iPhone 6 launched, and an 18-year old named named Jack Cooksey had just purchased the new phone at the Apple Store in Sydney, Australia. A television reporter on the scene decided to interview the kid, who was clutching the box containing his new phone. With the television camera focused on him, Jack opened the box and his brand new iPhone 6 slid right out and hit the pavement.Well, let's move forward three years to 2017. Today, the Apple iPhone X is being launched, and while Apple claims that the glass front and back are made from the strongest glass to ever appear on a smartphone, that doesn't mean that the phone won't break if dropped. One video, which was labeled tongue-in-cheek, "iPhone X drop text result," is actually nine-seconds worth of a cracked and damaged tenth anniversary model. And a photo that was attached to a tweet shows the rear glass on an iPhone X after … [Read more...] about If you don’t put a case on your Apple iPhone X, it could end up looking like this!

We will have to see how good or bad the A11 GPU thermal throttles. 24. Back_from_beyond (Posts: 506; Member since: 04 Sep 2015) You do understand why the A11 has two ridiculously overpowered cores right? Their sole purpose is to load apps really fast, then offload them to the smaller cores. Why you ask? To compensate for iOS hibernates … [Read more...] about Comments for : The iPhone X is “the iPhone of the future”. Cool. Here are 4 things that would’ve made it better
So the iPhone X finally got unveiled last night, after months of waiting from fans — and, uh, there were literally no surprises? Apple, the company which for many years used the element of surprise as a key marketing tactic, somehow managed to have the entirety of the device revealed prematurely, thanks to two major leaks coming straight from its own software.Guess those anti-leak measures didn't do much, huh?But both of those leaks were the culmination of a year-long race for everyone even remotely connected to Apple to try and divulge the secrets of its latest flagship. And as is always the case, there were quite a few duds nested alongside the real rumors: some were fairly trivial, while others were so terrible we're glad they never came to fruition.So let's play a fun little game: we'll take a look at most of the notable false rumors, and — of course — rate them.Under-glass fingerprint scannerYes, of course we'll start with the big one first. 2017 was … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone X: all the rumors that didn’t come true
Accessory manufacturer TwelveSouth has released a version of its SurfacePad case for the iPhone X. The SurfacePad is a folio style leather case that provides both front and back protection for the iPhone X, along with two card slots on the cover flap. Unlike other folio cases, the SurfacePad is thin and lightweight, though it won’t provide much protection from drops, as it doesn’t cover the top, bottom, or side of the phone. You can get it in black, brown, or blue for $49.99 direct from TwelveSouth. I’ve been using the SurfacePad on my iPhone X for about a day, and while it’s better than other folio cases I’ve tested in the past, which were unusably bulky, it’s far from perfect. The leather is soft and supple and should patina well over time, but it has a strong chemical smell that hasn’t dissipated yet. The inner lining of the case is a soft, suede-like material, and the two card slots are loose enough to make it getting a card in and out of … [Read more...] about The SurfacePad is a sleek leather folio for the iPhone X
Today, Apple emailed iOS developers to explore new features in iOS 11 like ARKit. In that email, the company also announced that all new apps submitted from April 2018 onward must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the iPhone X's new display. This was Apple's complete message to developers on the subject: iOS 11 has brought innovative features and the redesigned App Store to hundreds of millions of customers around the world. Your apps can deliver more intelligent, unified, and immersive experiences with Core ML, ARKit, new camera APIs, new SiriKit domains, Apple Music integration, drag and drop for iPad, and more. Starting April 2018, all new iOS apps submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK, included in Xcode 9 or later. All new apps for iPhone, including universal apps, must support the Super Retina display of the iPhone X. The email didn't clarify exactly what support for the iPhone X's "Super Retina" screen means—does it just mean the … [Read more...] about Apple dictates that all new apps must fully support the iPhone X screen
