iPhone

 

Apple iPhone is one of the most expensive smartphones and now it is going to even pricier. Thanks to Trump administration who is threating to impose more tarrif on Chinese products, iPhone prices could go up to 14%, according to CNBC. This would make the cheapest iPhone XR $750 to cost us an extra $100. Whereas the most expensive one the iPhone XS max would cost $200 more - bringing its price tag up to $1,650. J.P Morgan said, "We estimate a price increase of around 14% is required to absorb the impact of a 25% tariff, keeping margin dollars for all players in the supply chain constant," J.P. Morgan said in a note to clients Tuesday.


With $200 billion on hand, Apple can easily afford this cost but most likely it is going to past down to the customer. The tarrif isn't a reality yet but on Monday, Trump tweeted that customers in U.S should buy stuff from other countries or something made in U.S. This is easy to say but in practical terms may be not easy to do. Apple has clearly stated that it iPhones may not get have a huge impact from this trade war but the prices of other products like Apple watches and Air Pods are going to be higher with immediate effect if the tarrif is imposed.


According to statista.com, throughout 2010, 304.7 million devices were shipped. In 2018, we see that 1.4 billion units were sold, which is way higher figure anyone would have anticipated a decade ago. It seems that market is already saturated with dozens of smartphone manufacturers already. Looking in the future, some people suggest that Apple may move its production unit to some other Asian country or should move to U.S completely. Bank of America Merrill Lynch estimates that iPhone prices would have to increase by around 20 percent if production was moved to the U.S. "We estimate the incremental cost of manufacturing iPhones in the U.S. could be 15-25%, and, if passed on to consumers could lead to demand destruction, in our view," the Bank of America said in a note.

The recent rumor about the upcoming operating system update by Apple for iPhone is relatively shocking. A French technology blog reported that iOS 13 will not be compatible with the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPhone SE, and support for the original iPad Air and iPad mini 2 will also be dropped. This is the second time we are hearing this rumor. Earlier an Israeli website The verifier reported that iOS 13 will be expected in this June at the Worldwide Developers Conference and may drop support for a number of iPhones and iPads. The site had a similar list of the iPhone for which iOS 13 won't be available. As for iPads, The Verifier believes Apple will drop support for the iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, and possibly the iPad mini 4.

 

If the rumor is true, it would mean that Apple dropping support for its three generations of iPhone at a time. This is rare and unexpected. As Apple used to provide software updates for its iOS for as long as possible. Even iPhone 5s and newer had support from iOS 11 and iOS 12. At the time iOS 12 launched some of the devices were already 5 years old. If Apple drop support for everything up to the iPhone 7 would leave only devices from 2016 or later on the list.

 

In the previous post we talked about Apple's new advertising campaign which encourages users to give back to their iPhones to Apple while upgrading for their iPhone. Many users would still choose to sell their old iPhones over eBay but after this the old iPhones would get their prices down in the market and more people would choose to trade-in for new iPhone now. iOS 13 is expected to be unveiled at Apple's annual WWDC keynote on June 3, so till than we can't say anything for sure. This is a rumor in question.

Recently, Apple launched a new advertisement campaign that offers you to trade-in your old iPhone with Apple for a discount on an upgrade to the new one. Apple consider three years as a potential life of an iPhone before it is hand over to someone else to be sold as second hand handset or stored in any drawer when a new iPhone is purchased. With the latest offer, Apple is making a new shifting trend to increase the number of upgrades to new iPhone by customers by returning the handset to Apple and trade it in for a new phone.


There are a few advantages for Apple in the offer. The user will still remain in the Apple's echo system if they upgrade their handset to another iPhone. Apple's CEO Tim Cook seems to put a great emphasis on services Apple can bring to its customers. Apple is using the emotional call back by Steve Jobs "One last thing" in the advertisement as handing back to your iPhone to Apple, it is available for refurbished and "put back into the world". If the iPhone you hand over is too old or have expected life span less than one year, it will get recycled in way that "respects the planet" and not by adding more plastic pollution to the planet.


Here is what Apple's new ad says:
You've done great things with your iPhone. But at some point, you'll be ready for something new. You can easily trade it in with Apple, so it can be refurbished and put back into the world, so someone new can do their own great things with it.
But if your device is at the very end of life, materials inside will be recovered and recycled. Either way, you can continue to do what you love, while respecting the planet.


iPhone AirPods

 

Over the last few months, a UK website and the Medium blogging platform launched a wave of articles implying that over 250 scientists submitted a petition warned about cancer risk associated with usage of AirPods. Problem is the petition was actually signed back in 2015, before AirPods were even released. The 2015 petition was related to Electromagnetic Field Exposure, signed by scientists. It cited "serious concerns regarding ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices".

 

The petition stated that these are included but not limited to radio frequency radiation emitting devices, such as cellular smartphones, Wi-Fi antennas, smart meters, and electric devices that generate extremely low frequency electromagnetic field. In 1998 WHO and member of UN has established guidelines for EMF radiation on Non-Ionizing radiation protection. Ten years later, the agency stated that scientists has provided no evidence of any adverse effects below the basic restrictions, it had outlined.

 

So rather than finding any link between cancer or any other issues in levels of EMF at or below the accepted regulations, the scientists suggest that it is probably a good idea to limit human exposure. The petition was updated in January 2019, with no mention of Bluetooth or AirPods being added. Apple sold 29 million pairs of AirPods and yet attract the attention of many writers. Various bloggers are using the concern for click bait and writing about the dangerous effects of AirPods? But does it can really cause cancer for its users. The Answer is No.

 

EMF risk assessment should be based on read data. We know that WiFi and Bluetooth use the same radio frequencies, but at a different intensities. WiFi uses about 40milliwatts of power whereas Bluetooth uses only 1mW. That's why Bluetooth lose its signal strength at a distance while WiFi can pass through the walls. In case you are standing in the sunlight, you are also exposed to ionizing radiation, the type that is actually known for cancer and other damage. The radio energy produced by electronics like AirPods is non-ionizing and doesn't posses the threat of cancer for its users.


iPhone

 

The iPhone is one of the best inventions of Apple. But not every iPhone user is aware of its full potential. If you are curious about what the iPhone can do for you, we have rounded up five best tips for you.


1. Swiping down from the middle of your display panel activates spotlight search. From here you can search for anything on your phone with one simple gesture. Like a file or setting and you can even get web results too.

 

2. You can create custom alerts for different people so you always know who is calling or texting you without even having to look at your phone. Go into your contacts app > Tap on the person you want, tap edit and then click either ringtone or text tone. From here you can choose any ringtones or text tones to play whenever that person calls or send a text message to you.

 

3. Need to read a smaller text? Use your iPhone as a magnifying glass. Go into settings > General > Accessibility > Magnifier. From now on, you can triple-click the home button to turn the iPhone's camera into a magnifying glass and your screen into a viewfinder?

 

4. Facetime audio is Apple's alternate option for traditional phone calls and these don't cost you anything. Click on the contact you want to talk, and if the face time is available, click on the phone symbol next to the video camera symbol. Face time audio operates over the Internet via WiFi or cellular data and these calls sound far clearer than the traditional calls if you are talking to someone outside the country.

 

5. You can turn your iPhone into flashlight without even opening the smartphone. When you wake up your iPhone, a button in the bottom-left corner of the screen shows a picture of a flashlight. Press into it, and your phone will use its rear flash as a torch.
