In conjunction with the Lazada’s Year End Sale, the official Apple Store on Lazada Malaysia is currently having a promotion on the iPhone XR. Originally retailing for RM3,599 for the base 64GB model, you can get it now from RM3,399.
Smartphone makers these days are pushing for more cameras to be fitted on the back of the phone. When Apple announced the iPhone XR, it came with a single camera instead of two like its more expensive iPhone XS and XS Max. Are you really losing out for having just one camera?
According to DxOMark Mobile, the iPhone XR is the best single-camera smartphone at the moment. It even beats other flagship contenders like the Galaxy S9+, Xiaomi Mi 8, Pixel 2 and even the iPhone X.
The iPhone XR is currently the best selling iPhone at the moment but it’s also the only new iPhone that lacks 3D touch. Instead, it comes with Haptic Touch which isn’t pressure-sensitive but it gives a haptic feedback when you perform long-presses.
To bridge the gap between haptic touch and 3D touch, Apple is enabling notification preview on the iPhone XR with the latest iOS 12.1.1 update which is rolling out now to all supported iOS devices.
If you have an iPhone XR, iPhone XS or XS Max and you play Fortnite, then congratulations, you have a slight advantage over your mobile competition. Fortnite runs at a smoother 60fps frame rate compared to the standard 30fps frame rate you get on Android devices and even the Nintendo Switch.
If you’ve just bought a phone, the two things you will buy together with your phone is a protective case and a screen protector. And if you’ve ever tried applying a screen protector yourself, you’ll know that it is a pain in the you-know-where to get right.
No matter how careful you are, you’ll probably get a speck of dust or air bubbles trapped under the protector or have it misaligned or…have all of the problems.
This has caused a domino effect down the supply chain as industry sources indicate a number of Apple’s suppliers (many of which are from Taiwan) have had to revise their earnings report. Some even had to lay off staff to cope with the lower than expected orders.
Similar to last year, Apple had recently introduced three new iPhone models into the market. Last year’s iPhone X was their most expensive phone yet but it was proven to be a hot seller. Now it is reported that Apple is slowing down on production for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR due to lower than expected demand.
iOS 12.1 is available from Tuesday, October 30 for the iPhone (from iPhone 5S and later), the iPad (from iPad mini 2 and later) and even the 6th generation iPod touch. The update brings with a list of enhancements including support for Group FaceTime and 70 new emoji for the iPhone and iPad.
For the newer iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, iOS 12.1 will enable Depth Control in camera preview and dual SIM support via eSIM.
