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.

Before the introduction of A13, we will likely to get an A12X processor which is also made by TSMC in upcoming iPad Pro. The current iPad Pro has A10X chipset it seems that Apple will shift the processing of iPad further as they missed A11X Bionic processor. 

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

What Feature Will Come With FaceID
What Feature Will Come With FaceID

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.

Magnetic Connector

iPad Pro 2018 Smartconnector

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 Pixel Slate

Google Pixel Slate Introduction
Google Pixel Slate Introduction

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.

Google Pixel Slate

Apple A12 Bionic Has Really Something Underhood?

Apple A12 Bionic Chipset
Apple A12 Bionic Chipset

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 A7 Chipset 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.

A12 Bionic Introduction
A12 Bionic Introduction

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

World First 7nm Chipset Introduction
World First 7nm Chipset Introduction

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

A12 Bionic Chips Feature
A12 Bionic Chips Feature

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

A12 Bionic NPU Features
A12 Bionic NPU Features

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.

AR Possibility With A12 Bionic
AR Possibility With A12 Bionic

NPU Chipset also allows performing fast Machine Learning as in the test it performs 9 Times faster ML than iPhone X chipset.

Camera

Image Signal Processing Using A12 Bionic
Image Signal Processing Using A12 Bionic

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.

Image Capturing Through iPhone A12 Bionic Processing
Image Capturing Through iPhone A12 Bionic Processing

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.

Performance

AR Capability Of 12 Bionic
AR Capability Of 12 Bionic

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?

Microsoft New Andromeda Patent Showing New Doodling Feature

Project Andromeda Concepts Art
Project Andromeda Concepts Art

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.

Microsoft Andromeda New Inking Feature Patent
Microsoft Andromeda New Inking Feature Patent

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.

What to Expect With Pixel 3 Event
What to Expect With Pixel 3 Event

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 Pixel 3 XL Leaks Images
Google Pixel 3 XL Leaks Images

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.

Google Pixel 3 Leak Images
Google Pixel 3 Leak Images

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

Pixel Slate Concept Leaks Images
Pixel Slate Concept Leaks Images

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.

Home Hub

Google Hub Leak Images

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.

New Chromecast

Chromecast 3 Leak images

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.

More things

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.

What To Expect With Apple Special Event?

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.

iPad Pro 2018 Concept
iPad Pro 2018 Concept

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. 

Mac Update

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. 

MacBook

Group FaceTime iOS 12.1

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.

iMac 

iMac 2018 Update
iMac 2018 Update

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

Mac Mini 2018 Concept
Mac Mini 2018 Concept

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.

Software Updates

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. 

Group FaceTime iOS 12.1

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. 

More

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.

Apple Watch Series 4 Watch Faces
Apple Watch Series 4 Watch Faces

Apple Watch Series 4, was launched last week and it really packed with much good stuff inside. This is the first time Apple changes the design of Apple Watch Series 4 completely as it doesn’t get a full makeover but some cosmetic changes here and there. Apple increased the display of Series 4 for around 30%, which made the screen really amazing and more usable as Apple added new Watch faces like new Infographic, Modular Watch face and more. Apple also gives Apps some room to innovate to a tiny screen. 

But these are the things you can see from outside but the main matter of this article is Apple new Dual Core S4 Chip which is the first smartwatch chip to add 64Bit processor, and we have to admit it, that it is insanely fast even apps loading doesn’t take more than a blink. Such speed add more functionality to watch as a developer can put more advance feature to watch and made it super productive than we think of.

Apple Watch Series 4 Side by Side With Series 3

Apple really comes too far in smartwatch business as Apple Watch is the world best smartwatch and also watch as compared to most analog brands. Apple Watch really adds Apple’s a new scope as it becoming send most profitable product for Apple after iPhone.

Talking about the chip the fourth gen. Dual-core 64bit Silicon in Package or SIP chip in the Apple Watch is twice as fast as the previous gen. S3 Chip. Its improved efficiency and speed allow Apple Watch Series 4 to give around 6 Hour of Workout time, Calculating ECG with Watch and Battery Life for more than 1 days.

Booting speed of Watch Series 4 become fast as it takes around a min to become fully functional, Opening apps and Siri commands work perfectly and really fast. Booting on previous Apple Watches takes more than 2 min as Series 3 takes 2 min, Series 2 takes 4 min and Series 1 and 0 takes around 5-6 min. This speed first signs when you wear the Series 4 there are much more which really makes things faster.

Opening Apps is become blazing fast as third parties apps open without any loading screen as it looks like Apple own apps. Opening maps navigating to direction is really become fast, listing to music from Apple Music with a cellular connection is really amazing and become fast too, Giving Siri commands and Siri respond time also become flash.

Series 4 shows very high potential in terms of speed which made developers think what they could do to make use of Apple Watch Series 4. As Apple added Cellular connectivity to Apple Watch in Series 3 this year it becomes better. A developer can think of Apple Watch Series 4 as the standalone device rather than an iPhone companion device.  

Apple Watch Series 4 shows an amazing difference when you come from the previous gen. like Series 2 or Series 1. So what’ll you think about new Apple Watch Series 4 speed and do like to try this new Watch? 

Microsoft’s Surface Studio 2 Benchmark Leak On Geekbench

Surface Studio 2 Concept Arts
Surface Studio 2 Concept Arts

As Microsoft announce their event dates, a picture of devices which they expected introduce is started to appear around the Internet. As a recent Benchmark, the result appears in Geekbench website of Microsoft Surface Studio second-generation device which has achieved a notably higher score as compared with previous Surface Studio but the benchmark won’t look much amazing after all. 

Microsoft debuted Surface Studio back in 2016 which was take over Apple iMac devices with the introduction of Touch Screen compatibility and also works with Surface Pen and Surface Dial. All these innovations lead to a hefty price tag of Surface Studio but it really takes user’s heart. But as the device becomes two years older it should need some upgrade as this event is a right time for Microsoft to debut their 2nd Gen. Surface Studio. 

Talking about the benchmark of Studio 2, despite Intel’s two Gen. ahead in terms of a processor as compared to Surface Studio benchmark results suggesting that it uses Intel Core i7 7820HQ, which was the last year CPU. As it has more power than 6820HQ which was housed in the previous gen. Surface Studio. It is expected to have 8th Gen. Processor but somehow Microsoft won’t able to make it on time. The RAM speed is reported as 1,200 MHz, though that is likely a halving of the double data rate (DDR) RAM, and therefore operates at a respectable 2,400MHz. But that’s only a couple of hundred megahertz faster than the original Surface Studio although it does appear to come with 32GB, rather than the typical 16GB of the first-gen. all-in-one.

The result of performance shows that the device performs 10 percent faster as compared to the predecessor. Where the Surface Studio scored 4,225 and 14,471 points in single and multi-core tests respectively, while the Studio 2 managed just 4,680 and 15,915 so same test. The performance won’t look like people to upgrade the device if they had first gen. Surface Studio. But it is considered noting that we have seen numerous benchmark over a period of time having a different configuration of CPU and RAM. It might be that Surface Studio may introduce a cheaper and better version of Surface Studio.

Graphics of Studio 2 hasn’t much talk about yet, previous gen. Studio includes Nvidia 980M GPU this time we at least hope Surface Studio 2 will bring Pascal 10th Gen. hardware in their new build. It could be nice see better GPU option like Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU which really made Studio 2 a powerhouse.

So there are the latest reports coming from sources about the Surface Studio 2 hope to see a more necessary update as time passes. Until then you can read our previous blog about What to expect with Microsoft event.

Microsoft Oct Event 2018
Microsoft Oct Event 2018

Microsoft Surface has really taken Windows computing to another level by introduction of the first Surface which shows us the possibility of a tablet and laptop coexist with each other very well and after 5 major releases Microsoft Surface Pro is still the best windows device you can get. Microsoft also expands their ecosystem with new devices in a range which includes Surface Book, Surface Studio and Surface Hub. As these devices are capable of any kind of work from Artist to Architect, from Engineers to Creator and much more. 

Now Microsoft announces their new hardware event which will be going to held on October 2 in New York. This event is expected to release some hardware and refreshes from Microsoft. Microsoft held an event like this way back in 2015 after then they only announce the upgrades in their hardware while they won’t do any bigger event for Surface   Go.

So we are expecting to see some Surface devices showoff in this event probably includes new Hardware like Intel 8th Gen. processor and Ports Improvement like an introduction of Thunderbolt 3. So let see what devices and improvement we are going to see,

Surface Pro 6

Surface Pro 6

Microsoft announces last Surface Pro update in May 2017, just after the release of Surface Laptop. As Surface Pro is a successor of Surface Pro 4 as Microsoft won’t follow the naming scheme as like previous devices and called the 5th Gen. of a surface device as Surface Pro. Surface Pro 6th Gen. may include latest Intel Processor Coffee Lake processor which might include 4 Core processor and up to 32GB of RAM support for Surface Pro. New Surface Pro may also include USB-C Thunderbolt 3 Port as most of Tablet Laptop Hybrid not include this port combination as it will make Surface Pro really a powerhouse. Microsoft may also add support for HDR or Wide Color Gamut for PixelSense Display as many industry laptops now supporting it.  

Surface Laptop 2

Surface Laptop was announced last year May 2017, as it was made to deliver the Surface Laptop experience more affordable range. But it somehow won’t able to make user hand as it is priced at $999 as Surface Pro starts from $999 for Core i5 Model as Surface Laptop was won’t able to match user compatibility much. But this time Microsoft will include new improvement to Surface Laptop 2 which will include New Intel’s Coffee Lake Processor RAM support for up to 32GB and Type C Thunderbolt 3 Port.

Surface Go LTE

Surface Go is the latest lineup in Surface line as it was announced early this year, so don’t expect to have many upgrades but Surface Go will include LTE model which will cost $100 extra to get a Cellular model and this change will truly welcome by a user.

Surface Studio 2

Microsoft Surface Studio: A complete PC

Microsoft also in a better position to release their second-generation Surface Studio, as they are working on this very hard and codenames as “Capitola,” which will include updated internals. Might include all Type C Thunderbolt 3 Ports with some USB 3.0 Support which is really nice to have. While Microsoft also tries to include Nvidia Graphics in this device may include Nvidia latest RTX graphics. Display of Surface Studio may include HDR or Wider color Gamut support.

Surface Studio may able to ready for this event but we will like to see this device in action.

Surface Studio Pro 

Surface Studio 2

Microsoft may push their hardware to workstation level and introduce Studio Pro which will include Intel Xeon Processor as this device will only make for Pro user and help a user to get Workstation performance as a uniform package with Windows support. Possibly they will include Nvidia Quadro GPU or may go for AMD’s RX GPU’s. Hope to see this device in action from Microsoft this time.

Smart speaker and headset

A smart speaker is now becoming user major market for companies as many reputed brands already grabbing this market and we hope to see Microsoft will soon grab this market. Microsoft already has Cortana which already a good assistant and have many good features than other’s but Cortana integration in Home will change Windows experience to another level. So hope to see this device this time. 

Microsoft also on the new headset which will be integrated for smart work and work seamlessly with Windows devices.

Surface Book 3

We don’t expect much in this topic as Surface Book 2 just not even a year old yet so making another release won’t help Microsoft to grab many markets but if it will be upgraded may include larger battery life, better display, and upgraded GPU.

Andromeda

Surface Andromeda

Microsoft’s most highly anticipated Andromeda device won’t able to make this event as it has been already delayed and may able to make it next year. But we’ll surely like to see Andromeda in action or at least have some sneak peak about it as how it gonna be and what it will able to do.

So these are the products which we are expecting to release in this Microsoft event while there is something more may Microsoft able to us apart from a traditional upgrade. 

Microsoft already issued invitations for this event on October 2 in New York City the event will lead by Panos Panay (Chief Product Officer). Stay tuned for more news and update on Microsoft.

Qualcomm Accuses Apple To Selling Chip Technology To Intel

Qualcomm Vs Apple
Qualcomm Vs Apple

The fight between is Apple and Qualcomm not seen to getting over as they both companies kept toe to toe against each other since last 3 year. As both companies have to settle their issues outside court as their not much to gives companies justice. 

As Qualcomm had Apple supplier for Modem which used in iPhone 7 and previous iPhone’s but in iPhone 8 and iPhone X Apple abandoned Qualcomm and make Intel their prime component suppliers. As Apple has to face some setback because some times Intel chip won’t work according to user need while Speed of Intel model are bit slower as compared with Qualcomm modems as Apple has to put lowered speed modem in iPhone 8 which highly criticized by Apple user as they won’t able to 1gigabit speed on their smartphone while other 2017 flagship already include it.

While this year Apple has gained some upgrades in their iPhone XS, XS Max and XR model as all these device include Intel Modems and Gigabit ready modems. But some Apple user are facing some issues with their speed while using mobile data.

Qualcomm has exploded toward Apple as they put allegation to share trade secrets to Intel for improving their modems according to a court filings. Qualcomm hopes the court will amend allegations in its existing lawsuit against Apple accusing it of breaching the so called master software agreement that Apple signed when it became a customer of Qualcomm’s earlier this decade.

The filing, made overnight in Superior Court in San Diego, as this new filing seems to put pressure on Apple to settle previous case about paying Qualcomm royalties from Apple, for their modem for each iPhone sales. But Qualcomm’s general counsel, Donald Rosenberg, told CNBC the case stands on its own and would have been filed regardless of the on-going dispute. “Unlawful use of Qualcomm’s valuable trade secrets to try to help a competitor catch up irreparably harms us and must not be allowed to continue,” he said.

Qualcomm also alleges the source code and tools were stolen for the express purpose of helping Intel overcome engineering flaws in its chips that led to their poor performance in iPhones.

While due to this allegation Qualcomm does not provide any direct evidence to support the allegations but does make reference to back and forth between Apple and Intel engineers that was found during discovery. According to sources the evidences includes not just email correspondence, but Apple’s source code development history and the code used in Intel-based phones.

Apple hasn’t responded on this allegation while Intel also won’t make any comment due to this issues.

Apple iPhone iFixit Teardown
Apple iPhone iFixit Teardown

Apple newest iPhone’s is covering all around the internet people are testing its rigidity, its performance, and internals. While newest iPhone is the costliest smartphone which costs around $1500 for iPhone XS Max 512GB model. While the cost of making iPhone is much as compared with manufacturing costs but Apple has to keep some margin to earn for their future developments and advertising iPhone all around the world. 

A recent article shared by TechInsights cost for making iPhone XS Max 256 GB model is around $443. While manufacturing cost for iPhone 64GB model is $50 less expensive around $395.44.

During teardown of iPhone XS Max TechInsights suggest the most expensive components in the is a display of iPhone which costs $80.50, while the second most expensive part is Apple A12 Bionic chipset which costs $72.

Storage of iPhone is priced at $64 which is a third most expensive component, while other expensive parts include $44 and the housing and mechanical components at $55.

The iPhone XS Max hosing, display, battery, and memory are most expensive part of iPhone which is more expensive last’s year iPhone X this all due because of larger iPhone size 6.5-inch. 

Apple iPhone XS Max Part Cost
Apple iPhone XS Max Part Cost

According to TechInsights, Apple cut down some cost in the display of iPhone XS Max removing some 3D components which were previously included in iPhone X. This may happen because Apple has got new ways to adapt 3D Touch technology without using those components as removing some components won’t affect 3D Touch performance of iPhone anyhow. 

Apple is charging $100 more for iPhone XS Max as compared to iPhone X which was priced at $999. 

While the raw cost of components won’t tell us the whole story of iPhone as Apple have other expenses like research for future iPhone, shipping cost when selling iPhone all around the world, software creation, advertising and much more.

TechInsights itself warns that its cost estimates are compiled using the information available at the time of the initial teardown, with “some assumptions” made where concrete data is not yet available. The company plans to continue to refine its estimate over time. 

Talking about last year iPhone X which was estimated at $357.50 while the number no grow around $40 more for larger iPhone. 

While these are the estimated cost for iPhone XS Max and we don’t have an accurate cost of the parts and Apple’s supplier pricing list as how much money Apple invested to purchase these products.

Newest iPhone’s are finally here and this time it’s getting bigger and called as iPhone XS Max. As naming of this year iPhone is not better as it looks Apple trying to coping other brands naming scheme. Newest iPhone gets increase battery life and also claimed that iPhone XS will give 30min more than iPhone X while iPhone XS Max will give around 90min more than iPhone X but all these claims looking fading as new battery test from Tom’s Guide showing detailed look at the battery performance of new iPhones.

Apple iPhone XS and XS Max Battery Test Result
Apple iPhone XS and XS Max Battery Test Result

Apple achieves all these power and efficiency with the new A12 Bionic chipset which is the first industry 7nm processor which available to the consumer. But according to Tom’s Guide, however actual battery life is quite different. During its test, the iPhone XS and XS Max were set 150 nits of screen brightness, with auto brightness and True Tone tuned off. The devices are then put through a continuous web surfing test.

According to the test iPhone XS was able to last 9hours and 41 minutes during the test, whereas the iPhone XS Max lasted 10 hours and 38 minutes. This compares to the iPhone X, which lasted 10 hours and 49 minutes. As this test showed us all Apple claims comes to vain as iPhone XS won’t able to beat iPhone X during the test.

While talking about XS Max which is big only because of its gigantic display and battery life but it also fails to does so. While talking about competitors Huawei P20 Pro is the leader in the test for more than 14 hours. 

Apple has to take these issue seriously and bring some minor update to fix this issue as soon as possible. While talking about real-world usage iPhone XS and XS Max only able to handle a day of mild usage while in using iPhone for mediocre usage like playing light games, streaming music and watching videos won’t able to last a whole day. Apple should try to make the iPhone battery a little bit larger than previous iPhone. 

Apple “Cheaper” iPhone XR Struggling With Manufacturing Issues

iPhone XR
iPhone XR

Apple event hangover is finally getting over as Apple newest iPhone has arrived in consumers hands and people start loving it. But one of the most demanding and cheaper iPhone in terms of Apple is still struggling in its manufacturing phase. 

As nowadays it has been quite always, Apple shows their products before producing for masses which create mess among public and Apple, as they failed to deliver the product on time as we have seen in past years with Apple Airpods, iMac Pro and AirPower which haven’t quite made out of a concept. 

iPhone XR once again hit a hurdle during its production plans as their one suppliers ran into manufacturing issues with the new phone, due to go on sale on October 26. Apple generally uses Foxconn for the bulk of its flagship iPhone assembly, with Pegatron used more for secondary models. The company is said to have originally planned to have originally planned to have Pegatron produce 50-60% of iPhone XR units so that Foxconn could focus on the iPhone XS and XS Max production.

DigiTimes cites an Economic Daily news report stating that Apple has now had to change these plans as Pegatron Struggled to hit production targets.

Apple has recently lowered the portion of the iPhone XR orders dedicated to Pegatron to below 30% while ramping up those to Foxconn substantially, said the report, which added that Pegatron’s production has been affected by a lower-than-expected yield rate and shortages of workers at its plants in China.

This all things were caused due to the technical difficult manufactures face during the production of XR over a premium model. As XR has an edge to edge display with LCD which is really a technical stuff, as this also hurdles Japan Display whose making XR display also facing difficulty to maintain a steady supply of the screens.

As iPhone XR has become more sweet spot in mind of a user as it shares many common features with its premium counterparts with $250 less. While XS user are shifting their mind toward XS Max as it has a bigger display and More battery life. As there is yet no confirmation about a delay in the release of iPhone XR as it will still make its way to a user on 26th October.

New iPhone is basically a moving forward toward betterment for iPhone’s. Apple newest iPhone lineup is expensive as compared to previous iPhone and it also becomes the most expensive smartphone as we talk about larger iPhone Xs Max. It has been around 11 year when iPhone was first introduced and since then Apple has decided to make iPhone better day by day either by making enhancement in future iPhone or software updates. This strategy makes Apple’s iPhone the best smartphone in the industry yet.

New Apple Watch Series 4 is fourth gen. Apple Watch and Apple is finally making smart watch really a replacement for smartphone as we know wearables are the future of tech industry and Apple Watch is really made us feel we are in future as last year Apple Watch bring Cellular feature to Apple Watch which really means that you can leave your iPhone at home and roam without any issues as Apple Watch can really do anything you want including you can book your cab, find direction, listen to music from Apple Music, listen to your podcast, make calls, while some Apps in Apple Watch really increase your productivity, you can also track your daily activity and if your heart won’t feel right it made you aware of that as these things we won’t possibly do in our smartphone as these things work behind the scene and you only need to wear your watch.

These changes seems small but overall this give Series 4 more productive feature. While major concern for Apple Watch is battery life and it seems that Apple is stick to same all-day battery life which means 18 Hours, while Series 3 gives around a day and a half battery life if cellular is not used while if your use cellular feature it gives around a day of usage. Series 4 also increases workout hour now you can track around 6 hours of workout. Apple Watch comes in same Aluminum, Steel series and Nike+ Edition while Series 4 also includes Gold version. The biggest relief for current Apple Watch user is that your current gen. Band will be compatible in Series 4. 

All these changes come with a hefty price as Apple Watch Series 4 starts with $399 for GPS model and $499 for Cellular + GPS model. 

iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and XR

Talking about the brain of iPhone Xs, Apple has really shown its leap toward advancement as Apple include the industry first 7nm Chipset which means that this year iPhone will have more power and more efficiency. This year Apple A series chipset also become more smarter as they introduce 2nd Gen. Neural Engine which figures brain stuff of your smartphone. New Chipset helps iPhone to get faster performance, more faster AI functioning, more better photography and much more.

iPhone Xs also improves Camera quality to another level as we know Hardware don’t give us best photos but software tweaks do, this time Apple really focuses on that software part and result from photos capture on iPhone Xs is really stunning.

FaceID now becomes twice as fast so now your facial password is more secure than ever. Apple also updates wireless charging speed as they not mentioned about how much but it is expected that it will get 10W charging which means that full charging may take about 3hrs or 3 and 1/2 hours which is really a forward step.

These are core stuff which made the iPhone Xs a better iPhone as compared to the previous year. While look wise, it looks similar to the previous iPhone. iPhone Xs also support higher storage capacity around half terabyte which really sound amazing. Xs also introduces the new Gold variant to iPhone X lineup. So these change we see on newest iPhone Xs.

Talking about more affordable version of iPhone X yes i mean iPhone XR which is seems to be ripped of version of iPhone Xs which include LCD Display which dubbed as Liquid Retina Display, iPhone XR include similar Chipset with Same Camera but Camera system on iPhone XR is Single as compared to Dual on iPhone Xs, while on the front side you’ll get same FaceID as iPhone Xs.
