APPLE is allegedly going to launch an iPhone in 2020 with the biggest screen yet. Reports suggest that the tech giant will be launching three devices with OLED-based screens available in 5.42, 6.06 and 6.67 inch sizes. According to tech website DigiTimes, the rumours came from sources who are part of the Taiwanese handset component supply chain. The iPhone XS Max is currently the largest iPhone ever as it has a 6.5 inch screen. A phone with a 6.67 inch screen would be significantly larger and could change the user experience. Last year, Apple came under fire from feminists who say iPhones are now too big for women to hold and that the larger sizes were affecting female hand health by causing problems such as repetitive strain injury (RSI). Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, feminist activist Caroline Criado Perez – who was behind Parliament Square's Millicent Fawcett statue and the Jane Austen £10 note – said: "I genuinely have RSI from having an iPhone 6, and … [Read more...] about Apple tipped to launch BIGGEST iPhone ever with enormous 6.7-inch screen – but will anyone be able to hold it?

The cheaper iPhone XR is currently Apple's top-selling iPhone, but it seems one area where Apple cut corners is with its modem. According to research from OpenSignal, the iPhone XR is on average capable of downloading data on US cell networks at 17.6Mbps compared with 20.5Mbps on the iPhone XS and 21.7Mbps on the iPhone XS Max. The iPhone XR is even slower than the 2017 iPhone X, which has average speeds of 18.5Mbps. While the iPhone XR is slower than the more expensive models, it is still a lot faster than the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone SE, which all have download speeds of between 10Mbps to 12.8Mbps on 4G mobile networks. For users who do care about mobile speeds on their phones, this issue may be one reason to upgrade. OpenSignal identifies three main groups of iPhone models by download speeds. The iPhone XS and XS Max are 26 percent faster than the middle group, which includes the iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X, and iPhone XR. The top new phones … [Read more...] about iPhone 4G speeds: Top-selling iPhone XR has slowest LTE downloads
Why I Chose the iPhone XR over the iPhone XS Max. I've always had an affinity for the iPhone 5C. When it debuted in 2013, I was enamored by the device for how it looked and how it felt. The bright colors were cool, and to this day, the 5C remains the best-feeling iPhone ever made in my opinion. And yet, I didn't buy one; I opted for the nerdier, pricier iPhone 5S. While I greatly enjoyed the 5S, particularly for the advent of Touch ID, I had a lingering sense of buyer's remorse. The 5S clearly was the better device, but the 5C was more fun despite being stuffed internally with year-old guts. I missed the "fun" factor of the latter, which was all about style. And colorful iPhones are absolutely fun. Aesthetically speaking, the iPhone XR is very much the spiritual succesor to the 5C. Aesthetically speaking, the new iPhone XR is very much the spiritual successor to the 5C: it's brightly colored and fun. Where the XR trumps the 5C is that the former is an all-new phone.
