A battle is about to break out. Tomorrow two new smartphones go on sale from two technology titans who are fighting for your attention. One is a household name: Apple is releasing the iPhone XR, the more affordable version of its pricey iPhone XS. The other is a rising star: Chinese company Huawei, which will launch its anticipated Huawei Mate 20 Pro. In terms of market share, Huawei actually has the edge on Apple: according to smartphone ownership figures from the International Data Corporation, Huawei is second, with 15.8 per cent and Apple is third, with 12. 1 per cent (incidentally, Samsung is top with 20.9 per cent). The Chinese smartphone, therefore, sees this as an opportunity to gain some more distance over its rival. Huawei has become a big player in a short time. Last week the company announced its latest phone at a high-profile keynote event at the ExCeL in London. It was an event in the Apple mould: executives introduced the products in forensic, endlessly … [Read more...] about Huawei Mate 20 Pro vs iPhone XR: battery life, camera, specs compared

OUT with the old, and in with the new – Apple reveals new iPhones, and kills off some beloved models to make up for it. It's now no longer possible to buy the iPhone X, iPhone 6S or iPhone SE from Apple. You might think it's a good thing: after all, you now have the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR to fawn over. But this quiet culling of old iPhones is bad news. It means that there are no longer any iPhones for sale on the Apple Store with a headphone jack. Apple infamously killed off the headphone jack back in 2016 with the iPhone 7 – and the feature appears to now be gone for good. It was a controversial move at the time. The headphone jack has been a staple of gadgets for years, giving accessory makers a universal way to plug their gear into smartphones. There's no denying that 3.5mm headphone ports are a little outdated, but their widespread usage made them feel essential. Apple bucked the trend with the iPhone 7, instead asking users to plug their headphones into … [Read more...] about Apple just quietly killed off three iPhones – here’s why it’s BAD news
9to5Mac released a photo last Thursday that allegedly shows two of the new 2018 iPhones. The picture, if authentic, shows the new iPhone and a larger-screen variant both in gold. 9to5Mac believes that Apple will launch a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch model named the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The "S" name would be a return to form for Apple, which has a history of adding the letter "S" to iPhone models with updated components, new features and no major changes to the exterior design.(Apple did not respond to CNET's request to comment on the 9to5Mac stories.)BGR and 9to5Mac both reported that Apple won't call the larger model "Plus," as it has done in previous years. Instead it will opt for the nomenclature "Max", as in iPhone XS Max. We'll know how accurate 9to5Mac's reporting is in less than a week.A week ago, Apple sent out invites for an event on Sept. 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California.
