The next iPhone launch is likely mere weeks away, and the leaks and rumors are swirling, and the release of the iOS 12 beta also gives us some concrete clues as to what Apple might have in store for us. Must read: Apple products you should not buy (August 2018 edition) WELL, THE FIRST MYSTERY IS THE NAME iPhone 11 seems the most likely pick (for now, at any rate), following in the footsteps of the iPhone X (where X is pronounced "ten," although given how many people I know call it "X," there's clearly a lot of brand confusion out there). But I've come across a number of other possible names:iPhone XI iPhone Xs iPhone X2 iPhone X Plus iPhone 2018 Another possibility is that Apple simplifies the line-up and switches to calling the new iPhone simply iPhone. Also possible is something like the iPhone Pro, especially if Apple unveils three separate handsets. WHAT ABOUT THE RELEASE DATE? Well, the timeline that we were used to was a September launch. … [Read more...] about New 2018 iPhone, iPhone X Plus, iPhone 9: Here’s what we know

Apple earlier this month told iPhone and iPad users that if their devices are currently running iOS 11, they will also run the upcoming iOS 12, an upgrade slated to ship this fall.According to Apple, the new mobile operating system will be supported on these devices: iPhone X iPhone 6/6 Plus and later; iPhone SE iPhone 5S iPad Pro; 12.9-in., 10.5-in., 9.7-in. iPad Air and later; iPad, 5th generation and later; iPad Mini 2 and later; iPod Touch 6th generation. [iOS 12 will also be pre-installed on the new iPhone(s) Apple unveils this fall.]The list is identical to the one Apple issued last year for iOS 11. At times, Apple has held the iOS support line like this. But more often, the firm has struck the oldest device(s) from its lineup, recognizing that the hardware simply can't execute the new OS, and/or the app developers will design for it. In 2017, for example, iOS 11 dropped the aged iPhone 5 (2012), iPhone 5C (2013) and 4th generation iPad (2012).Even then, Apple's support list has … [Read more...] about Which iPhones, iPads support Apple’s iOS 12?
More Charts Apple announced iOS 12, the latest version of its mobile operating system, on the first day of its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). When iOS 12 releases later this year, it will be available to all of the same iPhones that are capable of running iOS 11. As this chart from Statista shows, that hasn't always been the case. Apple's software updates have become more and more demanding on older devices as newer devices are built with technology that's able to handle them. In the case of iOS 11, for example, the iPhone 5c and 5 were unable to support the update, so owners of those phones could not update beyond iOS 10. Part of the reason iOS 12 is able to support phones as old as the iPhone 5s is because of a software adjustment that ramps the phone up to its full performance potential as needed (e.g. when you're loading an app) and then brings it back down more quickly to preserve battery. While the feature will make launching apps and using the keyboard … [Read more...] about iOS 12 will be particularly friendly to older iPhones — but this hasn’t always been the case with Apple’s mobile operating system
By Roger Fingas Friday, May 11, 2018, 07:50 am PT (10:50 am ET) A new bill being proposed in U.S. Congress would theoretically ban any attempt at imposing legal backdoors into devices like Apple's iPhone.A National Security Agency data center. The Secure Data Act would block courts and federal agencies from issuing orders to "compel a manufacturer, developer, or seller of covered products to design or alter the security functions in its product or service to allow the surveillance of any user of such product or service, or to allow the physical search of such product, by an agency." Backing the legislation are three Democrats — Representatives Zoe Lofgren, Jerry Nadler, and Ted Lieu — as well as three Republicans, Thomas Massie, Ted Poe, and Matt Gaetz. Wiretaps would still be allowed, as defined by the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, but even then fully encrypted messaging platforms like iMessage and Signal would be left intact. Some U.S. government … [Read more...] about ‘Secure Data Act’ would block US from demanding backdoors in Apple’s iPhone
By Malcolm Owen Friday, April 20, 2018, 05:24 am PT (08:24 am ET) References to iOS 12, Apple's next iteration of its mobile operating system, have surfaced in development testing reports for WebKit, with the appearance strongly suggesting Apple will be bringing the next major iOS release to the iPhone 5s as the oldest supported iPhone model. Listings in the bug-reporting section of the open source Webkit project page, discussing API tests for the software, includes a report from one developer in January showing an implementation of the testing suite could be run using Python. The report, spotted by MacGeneration, specifically mentions iOS 12 in multiple sections, as well as the iPhone 5s, including the confirmation "iPhone 5s running iOS 12." Rather than an unreleased version of the operating system running on an actual iPhone 5s, the start of the report indicates this to be API tests running in a simulator, mimicking the iPhone 5s in software. If genuine, this would indicate … [Read more...] about iOS 12 will continue supporting iPhone 5S, WebKit developer reports suggest
