All iPhone 11 use Intel LTE modems, no Qualcomm yet in insight

All iPhone 11 use Intel LTE modems, no Qualcomm yet in insight

Apple has a rather complicated relationship with its suppliers. In order to prevent a single company from strong-arming it into some deal, Apple plays the field by using two suppliers for key components, at least those that it can't make itself. That rather messy situation reached its height during the Apple v. Qualcomm lawsuit, forcing Apple to favor Intel's LTE modems. It seems that has continued to this year's iPhone 11 generation and while it might change next year, Apple might still have the last laugh.

iPhone 11 review roundup: Pro, Max, or no?

The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max were all released into the internet review universe today all at once. The fact that these devices are all very similar in basic keyword-search terms should give you an idea of how important it is to Apple that you see them all as the same single overpowering force. The decision, you'll likely find as a consumer, will not feel like an "if" sort of thing, but a "which iPhone 11 should I buy" sort of thing.

iPhone 11 Pro Max: Details on the most extravagant iPhone ever

Today we're looking at the most expensive, large, and extravagant iPhone ever released, the iPhone 11 Pro Max.

iPhone 11 two-way charging may be inside, but disabled

Earlier this year the iPhone 11 series was rumored to have access to two-way charging via its backside wireless charging panel. This system was rumored to work with Qi-standard technology, much like earlier iterations of the iPhone - the first generations with wireless charging tech. Today an insider tip suggests that the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max may still have this two-way charging tech, just "disabled" via software.

I can’t stop thinking about the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro

I can’t stop thinking about the Midnight Green iPhone 11 Pro

Of all Apple's surprises at its big 2019 iPhone event yesterday, the one I was least expecting was that I'd fall for a dark green phone. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max proved controversial from the first leaks, the aesthetic balance of including a new triple camera array without making a smartphone look, well, ugly ending up being a very hot topic indeed.

iPhone 11 Pro a very tempting upgrade. But should you?

iPhone 11 Pro a very tempting upgrade. But should you?

There might be some wisdom to Apple's once-a-year launch cadence and seemingly more modest upgrades year after year. Android OEMs launch twice a year or more, making the gaps between each flagship model smaller and the features so much closer to each other.

When Apple finally does make big changes, it makes huge changes. That happened with the iPhone X and we might be seeing the same revolution with the iPhone 11 and especially the iPhone 11 Pro. While the new camera bump is the center of attraction, it's not the only reason iPhone fans and users will be thinking hard about upgrading to this year's latest.

iPhone 11 Pro finally gets a faster charger

For years, Apple has been criticized for being stingy on batteries, despite actually outlasting its Android counterparts. It has finally conceded when it launched the large-sized iPhones but, despite that increase in battery capacity, it retained its measly 5W charger. This year, it broke tradition in more ways than one and is now reported to be shipping an 18-watt fast charger, but only for its more expensive iPhone 11 model.

iPhone 11 hands-on: Narrowing the flagship gap

Colorful, more battery life, better cameras... what's not to like about the iPhone 11? It's fair to say its predecessor, the iPhone XR, had a turbulent time at launch: chronically misunderstood, but then going on to be the strongest-selling model in Apple's phone line-up. Now, the iPhone 11 wants to repeat that trajectory.

iPhone 11 Pro hands-on: That flagship feeling

Familiar, and yet different. You notice the changes in the iPhone 11 Pro in your hand first, I found, and those who come to Apple's new flagship from an iPhone X or iPhone XS may discover it's their fingertips that observe the greatest changes in 2019. You can thank an all-new glass back for that.
