Apple’s iPad event hasn’t seen the much green signal as we haven’t heard much about it, but as we are getting an end of this month we are getting a clear picture of iPad. Apple’s upcoming iPad Pro could be the thinnest Apple device yet created.
Yes after comparing with iPhone and previous iPads, 2018 iPad Pro will surely blow your mind in terms of slim. As it is expected that it just measures about 5.9mm thick, based on details shared by a leaker on Twitter who previously provided accurate details on the iPhone XS and XR ahead of launch.
According to this upcoming iPad will measure just 5.9mm and due to this fact that Apple may remove headphone jack. As this might be Apple’s poorest way to remove headphone jack as they remove headphone jack from iPhone because there is no room to remove headphone jack as this device has much space to pack much hardware without any issue but making device slimmer to remove headphone jack hasn’t created much attraction.
The 5.9mm estimate matches up with alleged iPad Pro dimensions shared yesterday on Slashleaks, which suggested the new iPad Pro would measure 5.86mm thick.
Current gen iPad Pro model has 6.1mm thick for a 10.5-inch model so it makes sense that a new model will be slimmer. While the bigger model iPad Pro 12.9-inch features 6.9mm thick which matches near iPhone thickness.
The iPad Pro dimensions shared on Slashleaks yesterday suggest the smaller iPad Pro will be 7 inches wide (178.52mm) and 9.7 inches tall (247.64mm), while the larger model will be 8.5 inches wide (215mm) and 11 inches tall (280.66mm).
We’ve seen similar dimension estimates in earlier rumors from Japanese site Mac Otakara, suggesting the smalleriPad Pro will measure in at 247.5mm tall, 178.7mm wide and 6mm thick, while the larger model will measure 280mm tall, 215mm wide, and 6.4mm thick.
Compare these dimension with current gen iPad Pro 10.5-inch measures 174.1mm wide, 250.6mm tall while the bigger one measures in at 220.6mm wide and 305.7mm tall. As Apple will surely make these devices to have fewer bezels as the bezels will be right around 6mm at the top, bottom and sides, with 7.2mm measurement on the Slashleaks document, perhaps referring to bezel thickness with side button included.
Apple has plans to end the home button era of the devices as they started this journey last year from iPhone X and now they gonna remove it from iPad. As removing the home button will create an option for FaceID as iPad Pro will get TrueDepth camera system.
Coming back on the topic headphone jack rumor is not heard for the first time as back in July Mac Otakara also said the upcoming iPad model will have not the headphone jack.
There is more information about the smart connector as it will be present on the back side of the iPad according to data revealed by the case maker. As this position hasn’t seen much appropriate for a smart connector but hopes Apple will place it a much better place.
So this is we know about upcoming iPad Pro as we don’t get clear release date time but hope that Apple will make an announcement in the late of October. So what do you expect with Apple’s Latest Event mention on the comment section below?
Yesterday Apple announced their Apple special event, in which it is expected that Apple will announce new iPad Pro and Mac’s. As an event is going to be held on 30th Oct. in NewYork. So let see how Apple is preparing their devices against other industry competitions.
Talking about industry standards USB-C has become a new industry standard as many smartphones, devices, tablets, Laptops, and more devices start featuring USB-C. Apple also starts their game with USB-C with Apple MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, and iMac Pro since then there are not many other devices which feature USB-Cas iPhone, iPad, AirPods and much more. As USB-C becomes really a best universal standard for many devices as it is capable of giving much more than previous gen. USB standards, as current USB-C standard gives faster data transfer rate at around 10Gbps or more and also faster-charging rate as many smartphones feature Qualcomm Fast Charging which charges a phone within an Hour of charge.
Apple’s upcoming iPad Pro models will also be expected to feature USB-C in favor of Lighting Connector, Apple’s Lighting Connector serves Apple, from the era of iPhone 5 since 2013till now as ever iOS devices and accessories still feature Lighting Connector. But it seems that the era of Lighting Connector may be over from Apple world, as Apple will like to make their device normal as other manufacturers. This information is gathered from accessory makers at the Global Source Mobile Electronics Trade Fair by Japanese site Mac Otakara.
The trade fair kicked off today and Mac Otakara heard “talk” from manufacturers attending the event about a switch to USB-C.
This, not the first time we heard about USB-C turn over of iPad as earlier this year Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also predicted this plan about the move over. As this step is really wonderful for iPad and as well for Apple as it will help iPad to bridge the gap between mobile device and computer.
USB-C will enable iPad Pro power completely as you can connect 4K external Display, USB Drives and much more. As more USB-C accessories are expected to arrive when iPad Pro will introduce. Apple also change the smart connector of iPad Pro 2018 as they make smart connector more powerful and reliable.
Last week we have to get the new dimension of 2018 iPad Pro as it will surely feature edge to edge display. FaceID also makes its entrance to iPad world and sorry for the Home Button it will be going to end. So here are the leaks and feature we are expecting in next iPad Pro, hope to see what we’ll be going to see in next iPad Pro.
Apple recent iPhone A12 has already been a powerhouse as it still destroying all the chipset coming in its way in terms of speed. A12 made iPhone XS a super fast as in recent test and competition on speed shows that there is no smartphone is coming its way.
But as we know progress is the path of future so Apple hasn’t held on this chip for too long as their next iPhone will surely hold more powerful processor. Apple major chipset manufacturer TSMC’s whose producing iPhone Chipset from 2016 since the A10 Chip.
According to recent leaks from Digitimes, that next iPhone will surely get more power as compared to recent iPhone. Apple has publicly praised TSMC for being able to mass produce to high quality and be agile to new technology.
Last month when Apple released iPhone XS the production of the A12 chip also grew as demand as it’s industry-first 7nm process chipset and TSMC should also get some credit to produce it.
According to a report from DigiTimes says that TSMC made up 56% of the global foundry market in the first half of 2018. Much of that dominance is due to its strong Apple partnership. As in the upcoming year, this partnership will also grow further and benefit TSMC also. Unfortunately, we don’t have a report of A13 Chipset which is going to be released in 2019 but we expect that Apple will stick to the 7nm process and increase the transistor.Apple may move their shift from processing to NPU chip as this help iPhone to think faster and better without consuming much battery.
The ‘X’ version chipset is exclusive for premium iPads as Apple keep this trend from iPad 2 as ‘X’ version chipset add more power and performance in both CPU and GPU. As there are less constraint and battery issues in this chipset so Apple made things bigger and better than iPhone chipset which provides this power.
Apple’s iPad is now finally getting more competitors as yesterday Google announced their Pixel Slate which includes pretty Google hardware as well as Desktop class OS which made Apple rethink on their iPad to increase its productivity more. As it is expected to hold an iPad event this month in which Apple will introduce 2018 iPad Pro models, new Macs and much more.
In recent iOS 12.1 Beta version Apple mentioned about fall iPad since then we get much more information about the device as time passes. As today we get to know much more about iPad Pro to offer so let see them,
The model’s codes for the Wi-Fi models of the 2018 iPad Pro will be iPad 8,1, iPad 8,2, iPad 8,5 and iPad 8,6. Meanwhile, the cellular models will be will be iPad8,3, iPad8,4 and iPad8,7 and iPad8,8 as it looks Apple includes two version of iPad Pro’s as 11” and 13” as expected but they may also introduce two storage option which may be 128GB and 512GB options.
Talking about other major things which were mentioned in today’s leaks,
iPad Pro Displays
New iPad Pro’s will be expecting to get 2018 makeover as this device will get Edge to Edge display as Apple iPhone X, as there will be no notch on the device which is a really good thing. Apple also adds True-Depth camera system to enable FaceID and other awesome feature.
FaceID Works In Landscape
The most frustrating things with iPhone X FaceID is that it won’t able to unlock the device when in a landscape as this thing look very small but this feature really adds true utility while you’re lying on the bed.
iPad Pro leaks confirm it will support Landscape orientations and also on Portrait orientations.
Externals Display Support
As iPad Pro is powerful device yet created by Apple, 2018 iPad Pro will be able to provide more power than ever as a most compelling example of iPad Pro power will display a 4K HDR Video when connected to an external display. As this feature help user to get full PC like experience on iPad as they can connect wireless Mouse and Keyboard to get full PC experience.
Newer Apple Pencil
Apple Pencil was release way back in 2016 with iPad Pro 9.7” as then it now becomes most recommended accessories of iPad Pro as it helps a user quickly write a note, draw, maintain their idea and creativity with their hand. But their are some feature it is lacking behind so Apple might update Apple Pencil this time by adding more pressure sensitive level and also add proximity much like AirPods or HomePod so you don’t need much attention of repairing or paring the device again and again it is also good for using an iPhone if Apple allow doing so.
Apple magnetic connector concept really adds iPad accessories more power than ever as you connect Keyboard with backlit and it works really fine as compared with their Bluetooth counterpart smart connector add more reliability. A new version of iPad Pro will also get the better version of smart connector this time Apple may introduce more powerful accessories like a Dock Display connector, Fast Charging Stand and much more we can imagine.
So these are some of the speculations we are expecting from 2018 iPad Pro model. We are excited when Apple will show their move to announce the event date.
Google finally unveiled their product in their hardware event at NewYork they have announced a bunch of new feature and 3 new kinds of stuff. As Google their event short and concise as they don’t want to talk about hours and hours about their product as they want a user to experience their product themselves. Google has built their product around A.I as their every product is filled with A.I. stuff as this product ease our work but it cost some of our privacy as Google talked about the privacy their prime objective but it doesn’t look so.
Google added some most state of the art privacy feature for their Customer as they provide support and on-device encryption of data so your data will stay safe. All devices Google launch today will include Google Titan Security, Built-in virus protection are protecting all devices.
Talking about product Google introduces Google Home Hub which is Display Home Assistant, Google Pixel Slate which is Chrome OS Tablet and Most promising Google Pixel 3 all these devices shows us the best part of A.I and how could it be used so let’s dive into these devices one by one and know more about it.
Google Home Hub
Google Home Hub is Smart display assistant device same as you expect with Amazon’s Echo or other Google Assistant Smart Display, while there is feature which Google cut in this device is Camera as this device doesn’t have Camera in it, Google termed it as Privacy issue but we know in the first place that this device is built by Google, so why not Camera is the device is not protecting by Google, are their Privacy statement is not private or they don’t control user personal data whatever is the case Google should introduce Camera in it. As this made Google Home Hub much less likely choice as we compared with other Google Assistant Smart Display devices.
Google tries to add visual feel to Assistant as we have made trillions of query each day with Google either your work schedule or how to cook something, direction and much more. But while using Home Audio device we won’t get the essence of what actually working on the device which really made Google home Hub a welcome device.
Apart from Camera Device has really Good Aesthetics Come in 4 Color VariantWhite, Midnight Blue, Pink and Light Green. Device support Google all latest and greatest app which include YouTube, Google Photos and Google Calendar. While the integration of Assistant in this device is really Amazing Google introduces new Home View in which you can Control all the Smart devices at one voice control.
Google Home Hub comes with 6 months of YouTube Music subscription at the Time of Purchase. Google Home Hub will available for Pre-Order Now at $149 and will be shipped next week. It interesting to see how Google Home Hub will stand against other Smart Display when coming in the market.
Google Pixel Slate
Google’s another approach to justify Pixel Tablet or Chrome Device isn’t working well as last year Google introduces PixelBook which is most expensive 2-in-1 which don’t do anything extra as compared to their competitors. This year approach to Chrome OS Table is a little bit different as Google reduce the price of them and made more interesting and feature pack.
Pixel Slate has the stunning display which has a resolution of about 293 ppi which accounts 6M pixels total, as this amount of pixel will create more stunning and real to life images we can imagine. Google showed there to display to filmmaker and they have a pretty good review about it so it should be amazing. Apart from that Pixel Slate also features stereo speaker support which also sounds pretty amazing. Apart from that Google add Front and Rear Camera both are 8MP shooter which is capable of Portrait Mode.
Apart from that Google added new features to ChromeOS like Split Screen, new Home design, new interface, night light and much more. As this feature really increases the productivity of Slate as compared to other ChromeOS devices.
Pixel Slate also comes with some extra accessories which include a Keyboard and Pen. This time Google added a smart connector to Keyboard so you don’t need to charge or connect to Bluetooth your keyboard while working as it works instantly. The keyboard comes in form of folio case which comes with adjustable stand magnets which allow you to choose any size variation you work on. Apart from keyboard Pen also a good addition Pixel Slate as this made a user write and work pretty easily.
Pixel Slate will start at $599 and you have to pay $199 for Keyboard and $99 for Pen. As compared this device with Apple’s iPad Pro Google has to put some hard effort to compare with that device but both devices seem to give good competition to each other. Google also offers 3 months of YouTube TV Streaming Service you enjoy their amazing display.
Google Pixel 3
Last but not least Google Pixel 3 one of most leaked and reviewed phone before launch. Google made pretty much headlines during the past month but as their device is finally here let’s see what Google is really hiding behind their sleeves.
Google Pixel 3 has opted the same last year design pattern with two color back panel. Google Pixel 3 has come in two sizes 5.5” and 6.3” displays. Both displays sport OLED display technology with HDR support. Bigger Pixel which is called as Pixel 3 XL has Notch design while the Pixel 3 got Fullscreen 18:9 Display as this create true choices for a user as what they want to use. Apart from that Google Pixel packed with great internals which includes Snapdragon 845 CPU, New Pixel Core Co-Imagine Processor and much more.
Capturing Photos on Pixel become much better as Pixel 3 has got pretty amazing AI tricks under its sleeves called as Top Shot, Super Res Zoom, Night Sight, Playground, and New Focused Depth shot. The front camera on Pixel also got improvement as now Pixel 3 sports Dual Camera on the front side which help a user to Capture Group Selfie which amazing field of view and caught around 185% more image than iPhone XS. The HDR feature now becomes more stunning as Night Light image looks much more amazing as a photo comparison with iPhone XS it looks like Pixel already wins the match there is no point of comparison of those two photos. But we have to see what more these camera are capable of until then we hold our speculations.
Talking about AI stuff Pixel 3 now include a Playground feature in which there are AR character lies around you and they can also interact with you and you can also capture images with them, for starter Google added support for Marvel’s Avengers Character and add more soon. Google Assistant also got some new trick as Google Assistant now capable of talking your call without your absence and also give a transcript of talk to you if you later want to know about the issue this is a really amazing feature which user will love. Google also adds a Gesture Flip to Shh.. this feature allows a user to flip their phone to do silently.
Google finally introduces Wireless Charging to Pixel lineup as they won’t mention how much fast will the wireless charger but they said it is fast. Apart from adding a wireless feature they also introduce Pixel Stand which is wireless charger compatible with Pixel 3.
Google Pixel 3 comes in 3 Color option Just Black, Clearly White and Not Pink. The device will start from $799 and Pixel Stand is priced at $79.
So here are the good stuff from Google’s event today and we hope to see this device to do fantastic in a market until then goodbye and enjoy more content below.
Apple’s iPhone XS has been a really best iPhone ever created “yeah” I am using same Apple’s boring marketing terms which we always heard in Apple’s keynote. But one of the best things which Apple tells us about its new iPhone is not its Camera, Dual Sim or Display but it’s Powerhouse A12 Bionic Chipset. As we don’t know many capabilities of Apple newest chip as most of the apps or functionality of our phone run on previous iPhones perfectly so why the use of 50% Faster CPU speed or having NPU or anything else.
We have seen that Apple devices are proved really effective in term of longevity as talk about recent most outdated iPhone who’s support Apple recent iOS 12 update, yeah you guessed it right iPhone 5S, it was released in way back 2013 as it was termed as “Forward Thinking” smartphone but when we compare iPhone 5S with that time iPhone 5 we can possibly think that it has TouchID and Gold variant but nothing else, but the main ingredient it that Apple’s A7Chipset which is the Industry First 64-Bit Desktop Class Architecture after a year we really seen apps really focused it grasp more power from A7 as Apps becomes faster and more advanced than ever we can convert video or edit photo, easily multi between apps and much more.
Talking about A12 Bionic Apple really made some breakthrough in terms of the mobile chipset as it becomes more efficient, more powerful as it even matches some of your laptop performance or even outpaced them. So let take some of the most important we may miss about A12 Bionic
Industry First 7nm Chipset
Yes, we know Huawei already claims this title but Apple is first company who gives a user the experience of 7nm Chipset. Due to this fact Apple able to packed for over 6.9 Billion Transistor in that chipset. Smallest chip makes chipset more power efficient and more transistor logic which add more power to a device. As smallest chip creates more space for Apple to add NPU and much other stuff in this chipset.
As Moore’s Law is finally reaching to its potential we will have to see how Apple will achieve the next way to add processing to our devices either they enter in Quantum Computing or anything else.
Performance Cores and Efficiency Cores
This time Apple hasn’t much focus on Cores increment as they kept the number of Core same as A12 Bionic Chipset is still a Hex-Core CPU same as previous A11 Bionic. But the smallest chipset adds more space to make the Cores efficient and faster as Performance Cores are 15% Faster and Efficiency Cores and 50% Energy Efficient as compared with A11 Bionic which means faster processing of apps even half the energy consumption.
Performance really increases in iPhone XS as app opening time is really faster opening basic Apple apps won’t take a flick of sec while opening games are really fast when we compared with iPhone X.
Due to this fact its help Apple to decrease battery size of iPhone XS up to 19% but without any battery performance as it is capable of giving 30 min more battery life than iPhone X.
A Separate NPU
You may see AI performance throughout your smartphone since from the first iPhone as Apple applied AI in first iPhone virtual keyboard since then we have seen many good examples of AI as Siri, Suggestion based on Time or Place, Learning from your habit and show what you want these things really changes the way we see our smartphone. Providing these result your smartphone phone have to work proactively even when you are not using them so provide you result on time and it requires smartphone power to lower some performance power to CPU Apple has added a separate NPU (Neural Processing Unit) which can takes up to 5 Trillion Instruction Per Sec as this thing help iPhone XS to perform better AR performance as some example Apple show in there event about real-time Basketball Shot tracking app which work through AR and analyze your shots as this first example what we can do with this NPU performance but as the time passes we will be able to see much more.
NPU Chipset also allows performing fast Machine Learning as in the test it performs 9 Times faster ML than iPhone X chipset.
iPhone XS Camera has become better than ever as Apple added new Smart HDR Feature which captures around 10 Shots a time with the inclusion of Shadow, Depth, Contrast, Sunlight and much more and then the smartphone combine these things together and show us the better result possible and this trick really effects. As some of the sample shot from iPhone XS, we can be able to capture photos in Direct Sunlight, Background looks more clear and having better contrast in each picture.
Capturing a picture is a really tedious job for your phone as it requires around trillions of operation to provide your best shot possible and all these things are really possible through this chipset.
In terms of Performance Apple already the king in Benchmark industry for quite a while as their always been tough competitions with counterparts each time but somehow Apple manages to remain on the top still. As Apple compares their Camera from DSLR when we compare Apple smartphone performance to PC there are now only margins left between the performance as Apple smartphone chipset show they better than their PC counterpart if compared it with Intel processors.
During the Geekbench Score of iPhone X and Apple MacBook Pro 2016 iPhone literally beats MacBook with a little margin but this year as Apple introduces more faster and better chipset the result would be much different so we have to see how far will Apple go with this.
So these are some fact which you may experience from iPhone XS in a day to day life. As technology evolves and tries to get better every day so how much we will it go?
Unfortunately, we aren’t able to see Microsoft’s Project Andromeda’s glimpse as Microsoft is perfecting their device anyhow possible so they don’t want to create many people attention toward this device. As from the reports we know that Project Andromeda really exists as Microsoft owning many patents regarding this device from over years.
Project Andromeda has been already delayed because of some issue which pushed device release date to late 2019. But Microsoft is trying to improve this product as best as possible, as talking about latest patent seems to point to the idea of inking on the external shell of Andromeda, in order to send notes or sketches digitally to your device.
We know that Andromeda will include a foldable display which still not possible in an industry as Lenovo show first foldable prototype in the event but won’t able to bring for a consumer, it is also expected that Samsung is really close toward the foldable phone and they will introduce phone featuring foldable display in early 2019. Talking about Andromeda, from previous rumors we know that it has some form of external sensitivity for things like button presses, but this is the first time we’ve been given the idea that it could be sensitive enough to transcribe notes and doodles.
The patent shows a “cover” that has some form of a user interface designed to receive inputs from a stylus, in order to translate them digitally to the device’s main displays.
So this is a purpose of a new patent for Andromeda, Microsoft is seriously focused on this device as this device may become a chance for Windows Phone to relive once again with a power of Pocket PC. This is very interesting to look at how this device comes out from Microsoft lab and how people react to this device as we haven’t imagined this device much except leaks and patent images.
Google’s event is near and we know much about their latest hardware while we also see device live performance a week earlier, as we know people at Google are not best for keeping secret but there are some tricks under sleeves of Google which they gonna announce in their event.
Google Pixel 2 so far the best Android devices for 2017 and 2018 and really gives tough competition to Apple’s iPhone X and iPhone 8 last year while it also comes first in some part like Photography. Photos from Pixel 2 are still best photos come from a smartphone as according to DxO Marks Pixel 2 gains 98 points but the enhancement through AI really plays it games. So it hopes that Pixel 3 will amaze us again with its Computational Photography tricks which makes one Camera for all-purpose photography so without further ado lets see what we are expecting to new Pixel devices.
Pixel 3 and 3XL
Google is trying Apple’s leak tricks as how Apple leak their product before release which creates hype among the user, but Google goes a little bit longer as they leaked live handset in a video which gives us a pretty good idea of the device as how it’s gonna looks and what new things will it features.
According to leaks Pixel 3 will get little bit design tweaks and include Glass back panel which allows Wireless Charging possible as it expected Google will allow fast charging out of box, Device will feature Snapdragon’s flagship processor Snapdragon 845 so power will not be issue for Pixel 3 but Google may include little bit tweaks or add new chipset for Camera and AI stuff to power their device which made Google Pixel 3 stand apart from other Android manufacturers who are giving the same chipset.
Pixel 3 comes in two models Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL as Pixel 3 is being the shrunken version of Pixel 2 XL with the 5.5-inch notch free display while Pixel 3 XL will have a notch and sports display of about 6.1-inch to 6.4-inch max. Both these phones have a dual front camera as we don’t know much about what do these two cameras do but hope that Google will include a Face scanning feature in Pixel. While on the back side Google will stay focused for one camera system and will include some extra AI feature to a camera to snap some best shots as Pixel 2 does. Both these devices will be shipped with the Pixel version of Android 9 Pie. Pixel 3 also includes some new color and style as last year Panda black version is really stunning.
Pixel Slate Chrome OS Detachable
Chrome OS is PC experience OS provided by Google, as Google somehow manages to converge Chrome OS and Android together as both Chrome OS now supports Android apps but those apps aren’t much effective in terms of PC as they effective in Android devices.
Latest leaks come across the internet but not from the creditable leaker, according to leaks it appears that Chrome OS tablet code-named Nocturne, which we’ve seen references to in Chromium code for months. Google may call it as Pixel Slate as this first 2-in-1 detachable Chrome OS device from. The device will sport fingerprint reader embedded in the power button and pogo pin support while Chrome OS code indicates a display resolution of 3,000×2,000.
There is some Chrome OS table and detachable in the market’s already but the main factor for selling this device is its price as Google earlier approach to Chrome OS hasn’t fruit much talking about Pixelbook which is a really expensive device in terms specification. Google is trying to fuse Pixelbook and Pixel C experience into one device so it interesting how Google will make this approach successful.
Smart devices are really becoming a mass attraction as Smart speaker, smart display and further device really gain more user interaction.
Google Assistant Smart display already in a market from Lenovo and JBL were worthy rivals to Amazon’s Echo Show, so who gonna best contender to these devices other than Google’s own device. The Home Hub having 7” screen attached docked speaker, Home Hub will have the same aesthetic as other company’s smart home lineup. The device looks like the screen version of Google Home Max.
The smart display really helps the user to provide better assistant user experience as when you asked assistant some information like Recipe, Weather or YouTube Video demonstration listing from Home speakers aren’t much effect but Home Hub will really make this experience amazing.
Google Chromecast is also likely to make its appearance in this event, as it expected to have the same design as its predecessor but Google may increase its potential from inside device will feature Bluetooth connectivity and faster WiFi. As it may happen because Google recently announces Project Stream which is streaming service from Google so you can stream your gaming and show world. Bluetooth capability adds a feature to adding controllers to a device which make the experience on Chromecast more enriching.
Google last year special products like Pixel Buds hasn’t received much attention from a user as its production issue and don’t have a much convincing feature as compared to a competitor may lead to failure, so 2nd Gen. Pixel Bud won’t able to make its existence.
Google show their interest in watch industry as recent Google Wear OS really improves Android watch experience. But hardware on the recent Android device hasn’t much better as compared to Apple Watch but newest Smart Watch chip release from Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 really show much potential. It hope that Google will release its Watch product with Wear 3100 Chipset but we haven’t seen release date for this chipset so Google may step down this time for Pixel Watch, but it is expected that Google is working on Pixel Watch.
So these are the expectation which we are expecting from Google Event which is going to be held on 9th October in New York At 11 AM ET. So let see what new things we see from Google.
Microsoft event is finally over and there are tons of products that Microsoft has announced which includes an update in their existing laptop lineup and a new product so let’s see how Microsoft product align step by step
Surface Pro 6 And Surface Laptop 2
Finally, Microsoft brings an update to their Surface Pro lineup which is called as Surface Pro 6, alongside this Microsoft also include Surface Laptop 2 both these devices feature Intel’s 8th gen. CPU having an option of opting Quad Core. Battery life of these devices also gets some bumped up as Surface Pro 6 gives up to 13.5 hours of battery life while Surface Laptop 2 gives 14.5 hours.
The best things about both these product are that there are now available in the black color finish but Surface Pro 6 material is Magnesium Alloy while Surface Laptop features Aluminum. Prices of these devices start from $799 for Surface Pro 6 and $899 for Surface Laptop which is going to ship on October 16th.
Surface Studio 2
Surface Studio 2 is creators kind of device as an earlier model of Surface Studio don’t get much power but focused more on productivity while this year Microsoft bumped up the internals to match other industry demands as it features 7th gen. Intel Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GTX 1060 or 1070 GPU options. This two internals really made these devices more pro level consumers who do Video Editing or 3D Editing kind of stuff. It also features Xbox Wireless is built in as well, and it will be compatible with the Surface Dial, though there is no new version of the accessory.
Talking about the downside of this device is that it won’t able give Intel 8th gen. CPU, while there is a little option of Type C port on this device, no sign of Thunderbolt 3 and also won’t have USB 3.1 Type A ports. The device starts from $3499 and Ships on October 16th.
Surface Headphones are the newest iteration of the Surface lineup. It is a smart headphone and really have some amazing features which include Hey Cortana, Automatic Play and Pause audio while wearing and when taken off from ears it stops playing on the device, it features 13 levels of Noise Cancelation, Touch Interface for interacting with controls like Play, Pause and much more.
Devices come with a battery life of up to 15 hours which really seems not much as compared to competitions but the inclusion of USB-C and fast charging really coup this thing up. It has Bluetooth v4.2 for connectivity you can use with multiple Windows device without having to manually unpair the device which is really amazing.
The headphone go for preorder today for $349, but Microsoft won’t able to provide us specific shipping date, but said will arrive in the time for the holidays.
So these are the hardware update which Microsoft announced in their hardware event they also make some announcement for their hardware lets see them also
Windows 10 October Update
Microsoft’s Windows 10 October will able to download today’s as every Windows 10 user will get this update for free. Some of the key feature this update includes are Dark Mode, Universal Clipboard, Phone Companion, New Skype updates, minor update in search all around device, Snap and Snip app and much more.
Microsoft Smartphone market has been finished but it seems that they don’t wanna give up as their new plans include making things connected even if you have other devices apart from Microsoft ecosystem. Microsoft releases tons of app during the span after Windows phone they add more feature of connectivity between two devices which have different ecosystems and it seems their hard work really becoming fruit-full as their latest integration of Android phone to Windows 10 is really amazing you can see recent text from the device wirelessly on your Windows 10 device, you can also share photos wirelessly from your phone this feature really made Microsoft a real mixed ecosystem device. Microsoft also trying to bring more new feature during the course of time.
So these are new updates from hardware and software things which Microsoft announced in today’s event so hope you may like it and will see you on next article.
Apple’s iPhones event is over and newest iPhones are on the rack of Apple store while some people are already purchasing the device or wanted to purchase. But what about Apple other flagships products apart from iPhones like iPad, MacBook, iMac,Mac Mini and more.
As October is here which probably means we’ll get some new stuff this month which include iPhone XR which will hit the market, iOS 12.1 Update and other software update and may Apple held hardware event which includes some refresh device include iPad Pro, MacBook, iMac and more. So let see what we’ll expect from Apple this month.
Apple Special Event?
Apple held 3 events each year but this year Apple only held 2 event one is WWDC and other is iPhone event so the third event is necessary for Apple to show some effort on other devices apart from iPhone. Apple could release new 3rd Gen. iPad Pro devices, MacBook or may include some other refreshed hardware. So what will these device sports let expect
iPad Pro 3rd Gen.
Apple release iPad Pro 2nd Gen. in WWDC 2017 event which includes new iPad Pro dimension 10.5” iPad Pro, but since then Apple has made lot changes in their iOS device which include the introduction of FaceID, Animoji, Depth Effect in Single Camera, OLED display, HDR Displays and much more. But it is expected that Apple will eliminate these things in 3rd Gen. iPad Pro which will include FaceID without any Notch which really looks amazing, iPad Pro screen size will also increase as the elimination of home button made screen edge to edge. As edge to edge screen is tipped in iPad from iOS 12 update as Apple adds new swipe gesture in iPad same as iPhone X. Screen size also increase of iPad Pro from 10.5” to 11” or more while 12.9” will receive 13.3” or 14” size increase.
Apple also adds new A11X or A12X Bionic Processor in newest iPad which is phenomenal chipset and really contain much power. It is also expected that iPad Pro also first device to have USB-C rather than Lightening connector.
Apple added a new feature to MacBook Pro Early this year which include new True Tone Display, Hey Siri Feature, and higher cores. But an update for MacBook 12”, iMac and Mac Mini hasn’t arrived which means these devices also need to be updated. So let see these devices one by one.
Apple MacBook 12” hasn’t received much attention because of its cost and its feature which made this device literally useless. So this time Apple made give MacBook 12” some new power and makeover and made more affordable. As Apple is like to discontinuing MacBook Air which is really the best MacBook made so far in terms of each and every aspect of it, Apple may fuse MacBook 12” and MacBook Air features together to make a new device which costs less and performs better.
Apple may include Intel’s latest Coffee Lake CPU, Intel Iris Graphics, DDR3 or DDR4 RAM up-to 16GB, faster SSD’s, a new port connection may include Thunderbolt 3 and Type-C and better battery life around 16-20 hours.
Apple updated iMac last year in June since then iMac hasn’t received any update so this time iMac may get Intel’s latest Coffee Lake CPU, faster RAM, and new GPU options. Apple may also add True Tone Display and Hey Siri feature to this device.
Mac Mini is the entry-level Mac device from Apple, it is cheaper, faster, portable and more convenient to use. But hasn’t given their attention to this device since 4-5 years it still holds 4th Gen. Intel CPU. So this time Apple may finally have to give attention to this device and add some power to it. Apple must include Intel’s new Gen. Coffee Lake CPU alongside with Intel Iris GPU. Port of Mac Mini also be updated to Type-C or Thunderbolt option and Storage of device will include SSD’s for faster storage.
iPhone XR Launch
Apple also release iPhone XR to market as this device hasn’t passed FCC clearance yet so not able to make with iPhone XS but on 19 Oct you can pre-order this device. iPhone XR has some potential user you can buy premium budget flagship.
iPhone XR has some identical hardware as compared with $999 iPhone XS which includes A12 Bionic Chip, Dual Sim Feature, Fast Charging, Wireless Charging, Portrait Mode, FaceID and more. While some feature which is missing is OLED display as to make iPhone XR cheaper Apple uses their Liquid Retina Display which basically an LCD display which you can see in iPhone 8 and previous iPhones, it also doesn’t feature faster Wireless Charging as iPhone XS, Dual Camera also missing in this device, No 3D Touch rather Apple uses Haptic Touch same as MacBook Trackpad.
So these are some sacrifice made from Apple to make iPhone XR. iPhone XR is priced at $749 for 64GB and costs more for other storage option device will be at consumers hand on 26th Oct.
Apple will also release their iOS 12.1 which include Group FaceTime as Apple tries to give Group FaceTime feature in iOS 12 Beta version but won’t able to make it on a final update. This time Apple will include Group FaceTime.
Apple also releases watchOS 5.1 update which will feature ECG feature for Apple Watch Series 4 and alongside this feature Apple also include new ECG app. But ECG features only available only in the US because it only approved FDA it ECG to made available in other countries Apple has to take permission from their health department.
Apple AirPower has removed from Apple website like a sand as Apple hasn’t said much about the release of AirPower or haven’t told us technical difficulty Apple faces during the production of this device. So we hope Apple may bring this device in Oct. Event.
