Apple Probably Won’t Launch iPhones With An In-Display Version Of Touch ID Anytime Soon

the 2019 iphone lineup probably won’t use fingerprint on display technology

Liked Touch ID, or just plain don’t like unlocking your phone with your face? Too bad, unless you’re an Android person. Apple is likely planning on foregoing an in-display Touch ID fingerprint sensor for phones launched in 2018-2019 altogether in favor of the Face ID system introduced in the iPhone X, 9to5Mac writes, citing an analysis from “reliable supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.”

According to 9to5Mac, one reason Apple may decide to go this route is because the newer generation of high-end OLED screens such as those found in the iPhone X generally lack sensor support throughout the entire screen. However, Android manufacturers are interested in the technology, meaning that a major difference between phones based on either platform may be Face ID vs in-display Touch ID:

In a new research note shared today, Kuo argues that Fingerprint On Display, or FOD, technology will grow 500% in 2019 as Android phones continue to adopt the technology, but Kuo says Apple won’t be embedding Touch ID in new iPhones next fall.

In-screen Touch ID hasn’t been rumored for the iPhone XS this year, and rumors that Apple was working on the technology last summer have been denied.

Kuo argues that Apple’s facial recognition technology as a biometric security solution is serving the iPhone line well. Android phones instead will serve as the testbed for steadily improving Fingerprint On Display technology. As the Verge noted, Samsung has been reported to be looking into in-display fingerprint sensors in its upcoming Samsung S10 line. That potentially sets up a situation in which the two manufacturers will spar over which method is superior. (Both systems are secure enough for the average user, and the more advanced Face ID seems to be on its way up, though it’s debatable that the old Touch ID system is easier to use.)

This is just a prediction, though Kuo is generally recognized as one of the best Apple analysts, including a stretch in 2014 when he accurately anticipated almost the entire slate of products that year.

Even if the report is accurate, though, that doesn’t mean Apple will necessarily ditch Touch ID forever. It could wait until the technology progresses enough to introduce in-display Touch ID. In theory, it could also concede that enough users want both technologies to reverse track and re-introduce the old Touch ID sensor in post-iPhone X models, but that is very unlikely to happen.

iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) Leaks In CAD-based Renders And Video

check out these 2018 ipad pro 12.9 renders

Shared by OnLeaks’ Steve Hemmerstoffer in a post to Twitter on Monday, the high-resolution renders, created in conjunction with tech blog MySmartPrice, claim to reveal a vastly redesigned iPad Pro model widely expected to debut this fall.

The images are polished versions of CAD schematics first aired by OnLeaks last week and show an iPad device that departs from Apple’s current aesthetic. Gone are the soft edges of iPad’s rounded chassis, replaced with an angular case design featuring chamfered edges and breaks along the circumference to accommodate radio-transparent material. A similar architecture defined the iPhone 4 in 2013.

As seen in a set of CAD images supposedly showing off an 11-inch iPad Pro last month, today’s renders feature two rows of speaker vents flanking a centrally-located Lightning port at the bottom of the device, a design mirrored on the tablet’s top edge. Two microphone ports are also in view up top, sitting above a TrueDepth camera system embedded in iPad’s bezel.

Button positioning appears to remain unchanged from existing iPad models, though the familiar home button has been removed to make way for more screen real estate. Also deprecated is iPad’s headphone jack, a modification that would bring the device family in line with iPhone.

More dubious is a repositioned Smart Connector that supposedly lives on the back of the tablet directly above its Lightning Connector. MySmartPrice believes the positioning is a concession for Face ID, incorrectly stating that Apple’s facial recognition feature is unlikely to work while iPad is in landscape mode. Code discovered in past iOS 12 beta versions have revealed Face ID will indeed accommodate landscape operation in future devices, with iPad thought to be a prime candidate for inclusion.

Whether the renders, and indeed the CAD from which they are based, are legitimate is unknown. Hemmerstoffer himself hedges on the renders’ veracity, saying in a tweet, “I can’t confirm this one is 100% accurate.”

Rumored for release this fall, Apple’s next-generation iPad Pro models are speculated to boast a smaller footprint while retaining screen dimensions thanks to the deletion of Touch ID. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the shift to an edge-to-edge design will allow Apple to squeeze an 11-inch display into the existing form factor, initially designed to house a 10.5-inch screen. Apple is also anticipated to carry over the jumbo-size 12.9-inch model that ushered in “iPad Pro” branding in 2015.

Apple is scheduled to hold a special media event at its Apple Park headquarters on Sept. 12, where the company is widely expected to launch this year’s iPhone lineup. Whether the smartphones will share stage time with a revamped iPad Pro is unclear.

Apple Drops Second Round Of iOS 12 Betas This Week!

apple releases ios 12 beta 10

Apple is really moving on iOS 12. It has introduced new pre-release versions for both developers and the general public just a few days after the last ones. Apple normally only comes out with new beta versions once a week, but the last round of releases was only on Monday. This could be a sign that the full version of iOS 12 is nearly ready for the general public. Apple is expected to introduce it just a few weeks, along with the 2018 iPhone models.

Get the latest iOS 12 beta versions now

iOS 12 beta 10 is only available to those who have enrolled in the Apple Developer Program, which requires paying a $99 annual fee. Non-developers can join the Apple Beta Software Program and try out beta 9. Just keep in mind that this is potentially buggy software that’s not recommended for devices.

Updated features in iOS 12

  • A highlight is an increase in speed. Aside from the flawed seventh beta, tests show that the pre-release versions are already faster than iOS 11.
  • With Siri Shortcuts, an iPhone or iPad can perform complex actions with simple voice commands. iOS 12 also includes Memoji, personalized and animated versions of emoji.
  • Notification Center in iOS 12: Rather than infinite lists of texts, Facebook notifications and offers, iOS 12 stacks them together to make Notification Center and the lock screen a much simpler place.
  • Apps could take longer than expected to launch.
  • Home app removes existing wallpapers, now includes three color options.
  • Podcasts app now shows Now Playing indicator on currently playing chapters.
  • New splash screen for updated Voice Memos app.
  • New splash screen for Screen Time in Settings, includes Down Time walkthrough for parents.

  • CarPlay appears to be fixed when using side and backup cameras.
  • Watch app now shows third party apps that work with Siri watch face.
  • 11 Activity app stickers that animate and do not require Special Challenge to unlock.

The update weighs in at only 68.7 megabytes on the iPhone X, so there are likely no large changes or features in the update. Any changes in this update will be posted below per usual.

iPhone Camera Is Not Working? Fixed!

 solve the problem that iphone is not working

Hello. My iPhone 8 camera isn’t working. I was trying to restart my phone but it doesn’t help. What should I do? Any help would be appreciated!

If your photos are blurred or out of focus

If your photos are blurred, out of focus, or have dark spots, try these steps:

  • Make sure that the camera lens is clean. If you need to clean the lens, use a microfiber cloth. If you see dirt or debris inside the lens, take your device to an Apple Retail Store or Authorized Service Provider for more help.
  • For iPhone models that feature optical image stabilization: A metallic case or magnetic lens could interfere with this feature. Try taking a picture without the case or lens, and then compare the quality.
  • To focus on a certain object or person, tap that object or person on the preview screen. You’ll see the screen pulse, or briefly go in and out of focus, as the camera adjusts. In photo mode, try to stay steady when you adjust the focus. If you move too far in any direction, the camera will automatically refocus to the center. In video mode, you can adjust the focus before you begin recording.
  • If you still have issues with the focus on your camera, contact Apple Support.

If you see a closed lens or black screen

  1. If you see a closed lens or black screen when you open the Camera app, try these steps:
  2. Make sure that there’s nothing blocking the camera lens. If you’re using a case, try removing it.
  3. Force the app to close, then open the Camera app again.
  4. Restart your device, then open the Camera app again.
  5. If your device has a front and rear camera, try both cameras by tapping. If you see the closed lens or black screen on only one camera, take your device to an Apple Retail Store or Authorized Service Provider for more help.

If your flash isn’t working

Use Control Center to test the LED flash. Turn the flashlight off and on. If the LED flash doesn’t work as a flashlight, contact Apple Support. If you take extended video with the flash on, or you’re using the device in a very warm environment, you might see a message that says the flash is disabled. The message remains until your device cools down.

If you don’t see the Camera app

You should see the Camera app on your Home screen. If it’s not on your Home screen, you can search for it or check your Settings to see if it’s blocked.


iOS 12 Beta 8: Release Date, New Features And Hidden Features

tips on ios 12 beta 8

Release date

Apple released an iOS 12 Beta 8 update for developers on August 16, 2018. The new iOS 12 Beta 8 update is now available for download by developers.

Device compatibility

If your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch runs iOS 11, it will run iOS 12. That’s the short answer, but we also have a more detailed answer right here.

Core features

  • Siri gets smarter, but you’ll work harder. At first. Siri Shortcuts are tasks you can create and trigger with a custom command to do things like send a text, play a podcast and get directions to your favorite ice cream shop.
  • Cut down on screen time: New tools in iOS 12 show you how often you pick up your phone, how many notifications you receive, and how much time you spend using various apps. Trust us: It’s scary to see hard numbers for how long you spend on your phone.
  • Better notification management: One of the main reasons we reach for our phones so often is the sheer number of alerts we receive. iOS 12 has new tools to cut back on unnecessary alerts.
  • Create an Animoji of your own: Memoji is a word you’re going to hear a lot this fall. A Memoji is an animated emoji iPhone X users can create and use just like last year’s Animoji characters.
  • Closing apps goes old school: Apple changed the process of force-closing apps on the iPhone X, adding in extra steps. With iOS 12, things are getting back to normal.
  • Minor tweaks to Messages, but a big change to FaceTime: FaceTime was supposed to add group calls for up to 32 people, but Apple decided to remove the feature from iOS 12 for the time being.

Secret feature:

iOS 12 has a trackpad feature for easier text editing, Correcting typos has never been easier.

When can I download it?

Taking part in the beta program gives you a chance to use and provide feedback about features before they’re finished, but just keep in mind there are bound to be bugs and issues along the way.


iPhone X Battery Drains Quicker Than Before?

Anyone else experiencing battery draining quicker than before? Presumably as a result of the latest update? I contacted Apple on live chat and they checked and said my battery health was at 98% and there was definitely no issue. Anyone know if this battery health maximum capacity detail cover all problems that might be present?

iphone x battery start quickly draining

Batteries are a complex technology, and a number of variables contribute to battery performance and related iPhone performance. Actually, a battery’s lifespan is related to its “chemical age,” which is more than just the passage of time. It includes different factors, such as the number of charge cycles and how it was cared for. Follow these tips to maximize battery performance and help extend battery lifespan.

How to maximize battery performance?

  • Always make sure your device is using the latest version of iOS
  • keep Wi-Fi on at all times because when you use your device to access data, a Wi-Fi connection uses less power than a cellular network
  • Avoid charging or leaving iPhone in hot environments, including direct sun exposure, for extended periods of time
  • Apple software updates often include advanced energy-saving technologies, so always make sure your device is using the latest version of iOS
  • Low Power Mode is an easy way to extend the battery life of your iPhone when it starts to get low
  • You can optimize your battery life by turning on Airplane mode. Open Control Center and tap the Airplane mode icon. Note that you cannot make or receive calls while in Airplane mode
  • Charging your device when it’s inside certain styles of cases may generate excess heat, which can affect battery capacity
  • Do not fully charge or fully discharge your device’s battery — charge it to around 50%. If you store a device when its battery is fully discharged, the battery could fall into a deep discharge state, which renders it incapable of holding a charge
  • Go to settings down to battery icon click that check battery beta health. If your device performance has been impacted by an aged battery and you would like to get help with a battery replacement, contact Apple Support for service options
