iPhone X just broke the 3D floodgates

iPhone X just broke the 3D floodgates

The next age in smartphone sensory abilities began with the iPhone X - but the biggest waves might not come from Apple. While Apple's first moves with 3D sensing technology were to unlock the iPhone and make hyper-creepy Animoji, Android's coming up real soon. Reports from China and South Korea indicate more than one hardware manufacturer is traveling full speed ahead toward creating 3D-sensing modules for a wide variety of smartphones now.

Why won’t Apple enable Portrait Lighting for older iPhone photos?

Why won’t Apple enable Portrait Lighting for older iPhone photos?

Portrait mode photos taken on the iPhone 7 Plus could be edited with the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus, if only Apple felt inclined to enable the hidden feature. The new Portrait Lighting effects - which replicate the impact of different types of creative lighting on an image - were launched as a feature of the new 2017 iPhones, but left images taken with older models out in the cold.

Galaxy S9 may equip iPhone X innards

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 both have facial recognition abilities, but not to the degree the Galaxy S9 might. A new report suggests that Samsung is currently in the process of sourcing their own 3D-sensor, not entirely unlike what Apple has in the iPhone X. But what would Samsung do to differentiate themselves further from their competitors - surely not continue to rely on curved edge displays alone?

Apple’s HomePod delay is the right decision

Apple’s HomePod delay is the right decision

Apple may be missing the holiday shopping season by delaying its HomePod until 2018, but that decision could pay dividends if it makes Siri a better assistant. The smart speaker was due to launch in the US, UK, and Australia in December 2017, having been announced back in June alongside the iMac Pro at WWDC. Today, it conceded it will "need a little more time" before HomePod is ready for public consumption.

Apple HomePod delayed

Apple has delayed its HomePod smart speaker, pushing the launch of the Siri-powered Amazon Echo rival back into 2018.

Future iPhones could use Intel’s 5G modem instead of Qualcomm’s

Future iPhones could use Intel’s 5G modem instead of Qualcomm’s

The battle between component suppliers for the next iPhones has just entered its next phase, and Qualcomm might be left behind in the dust. Intel has just proudly announced that they have reached a key milestone in the development of its 5G modem that takes it close to catching up with Qualcomm. But, perhaps more importantly, it puts Intel in a more favorable position to be Apple’s go-to 5G partner, at a time when several market factors seem to be conspiring against Qualcomm.

Even OnePlus knows the OnePlus 5T’s face unlock isn’t as secure as iPhone X

Even OnePlus knows the OnePlus 5T’s face unlock isn’t as secure as iPhone X

The OnePlus 5T was announced earlier today, and just like another certain flagship device, it'll have users unlocking their phones with facial recognition. This seems to be the direction the industry is headed, and so far, the iPhone X gives us our best example of the technology through Face ID. Though the OnePlus 5T also uses facial recognition as a marquee feature, it seems that its creators know that it won't be as accurate as it needs to be before it's the only option for verification.

Vimeo 8K launch sees Apple-friendly HDR added

Even though it seems like we're just now getting to the point where 4K is starting to take off, Vimeo is already looking toward the future. The company announced today that it now supports HDR and 8K resolution in uploaded videos, allowing it to bound ahead of YouTube, which is still largely focused on 4K. While few people will likely take advantage of 8K support right away, this is a good move to future proof the service a bit.

2018 iPad Pro A11X Bionic to pack this much power in a tiny chip

Ever since Apple went into the business of making mobile processors for itself, it has adopted a sort of tick-tock rhythm like Intel. It announces a new AN process in a new iPhone to be followed by a new ANX chip for an iPad, specifically an iPad Pro. With the iPhone 8 and iPhone X running on a spanking new A11 Bionic processor, it’s expected that the next iPad Pro will have an A11X Bionic in turn. What wasn’t expected until now is just how powerful and how small it would be.
