Have you ever been annoyed at how
darn difficult it is to place emphasis in WhatsApp conversations? Well, now it’s going to be much easier because if you’re on an iPhone, the text messaging service will let you use text formatting in your conversations.
The iPhone SE will be available for pre-orders in first wave countries tomorrow which includes the US, UK, Australia and Singapore. For Malaysia, there’s a chance that we could be getting it pretty soon as Maxis has started its registration of interest for the iPhone SE.
The iPhone SE packs a powerful A9 processor in a compact 4″ smartphone body but is it really as good as the iPhone 6s? As we wait for the iPhone SE to hit the shelves, it appears that the new device is faster than its bigger models.
The people at Apple are wizards. How else do they get away with selling everything they do as a reinvention of technology? It’s as uncanny as it is amazing and while you either hate Apple or love them, you can’t help but admire how well they get people to eat out of their hands.
Take their latest device, the iPhone SE, for instance. When Cupertino revealed it, I was blown away because it was the single most brilliant but dumb thing they’ve done.
In the past, the cheapest iPhone you can buy is basically a rehash of an outdated model with a smaller storage option. We’ve seen this since the iPhone 3GS/iPhone 4 days. That’s no longer the case with the iPhone SE. It is Apple’s most affordable new iPhone and it’s just as powerful as their current flagship.
During their March 2016 Keynote special event, Apple announced a new iPhone, a new iPad and a generous price cut for the “best selling smartwatch in the world” — the Apple Watch. The Watch now more affordable than ever and comes with a whole bunch of new straps for you to customize the look and feel of your timepiece.
Apple has finally unveiled the new iPad Pro 9.7 inch tablet, which essentially is a smaller version of the iPad Pro which they revealed last year. Its got a lot of the stuff that makes the iPad Pro tick under the hood and Apple is marketing it as the ultimate PC replacement.
Apple has welcomed a new iPhone to their smartphone family — the iPhone SE — and it’s a 4-inch device designed for people who simply love smaller iPhones. It’s packing a whole lot of horsepower that makes it the “most powerful 4-inch phone ever”.
Apple is many things. One of the world’s most valuable companies, the pioneer of the smartphone as we know and love today, as well as a company who dares to try some truly interesting things with their devices (removing the CD drive on computers, and potentially the headphone jack on the next iPhone).
Now, I’ve been called many things in the past, “Apple basher” being one of them, and much of that is because I don’t agree with many of the things the Cupertino company does. But, there has always been one thing I like that Apple gets so right — their ads.
