Will Every One Calm Down The iPhone X is Doing Fine!

Okay so right off the bat lemme say that I'm biased, but you probably got that from the blog title. But If you really think about it we all are in some form or another we're all bias ed, lets just be open about it.

If you're like me and you read a lotta tech news you might have seen headlines that look like this.



We've had a lot of reports corroborating and opposing this and these rumours are doing real damage to apple. recently apples shares have taken a small hit wiping off almost $45 billion dollars in their net value.

Lets take a look at these rumours now shall we? These rumours cite supply chain sources as -well the source of these rumours, and they have been wildly off before anyone fancy an iPhone 7 pro? Back in 2016 the rumour mill was sure that apple would release 3 new iPhones an iPhone 7 an iPhone 7+ and an iPhone 7 Pro but at long last the iPhone 7 Pro Never saw the light of day. Rumours have also been way off in the past group FaceTime never came to iOS 11 a dark mode never came to iOS 11. All we need to remember is that these reports are based off of unverified claims. Take them with a grain of salt.

Our media has always been one for the sensationalist news topics, the truth doesn't generate clicks a scandalous story does this might be why sex scandals send news ratings through the roof. The online media needs a really sensationalist title to make you click on their article. "Apples Latest iPhone Fails to impress " sure sounds a lot better than "iPhone sales down due to decreased demand after the holiday season". 
Don't take my word for it look at this particular headline.


                          
Oh no! What could have Samsung done to disappoint America! taking a look at the article just says that the exynos variant might have super slo-mo and the US variant might not (Theres no reason for that to be the case), but the sensationalist title made you look ;).

Okay so the reports aren't totally dependable, but sticking along with the reports we are seeing other reports that basically say the opposite. That the iPhone X is selling really well.

And this isn't the only one there are some reports that look at the phone activations over the holiday season and apple is clearly in the lead with Samsung coming a distant second. We also go another report which claimed that the iPhone X sold 6 million units over black friday. I would say that these rumours are a bit more believable as they come with statistics and they're based on actual market surveys.

And for my last point Id like to remind you that the iPhone X isn't being sold in isolation. Apple has 3 new phones out this year, the 8, 8+ and the X. So comparing the X to Stats from the 7 is going to be kind of misleading. If the iPhone X breaks your heart ( or your wallet for that matter ) there are always two great devices to choose from although this doesn't mean the iPhone X is selling well It still translates into revenue for apple and the 8 and 8+ will help Apple's Q4 sales which will inevitably give apple the boost it needs to hit that $1 trillion market cap.

So to recap all of this is just conjecture and its just my thoughts on the topic and were just a few days away from apple releasing their Q4 sales on February 1 and personally I think it'll be a stellar quarter for Apple. Do let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

The HomePod Is About To Be Wildly Popular

The HomePod is finally here, and the reviews are in. I'm sure you've watched umpteen reviews and you all know the basics, It sounds amazing , Siri is dumb (Which is don't think is the case) and that it lacks Spotify and Android integration (You can read why I think thats not going to happen here).
But what stood out to me was the lack of "consumer interest " in the product. The preorders went live and much un-like the iPhone or the AirdPods, the HomePod was available for quite a long time, only selling out on the day before the launch day. For Apple this is really weird, a company that sells out of everything they release instantly.This made me  doubt the demand for the HomePod and I wondered if the critics were right , That maybe people aren't really interested in a $350 smart speaker. But thats not really the case.

AirPods Are A Totally Different Ballgame
Now you might remember back in 2016, when the iPhone 7 came out Apple came out with AirPods and much l…

iOS 11 Was A Dumpster Fire. Whats Next?

So iOS 11 was released back in September of 2017 and it has been a cluster-You know what I mean. iOS 11 has been crippling devices ever since it's release. Its ironic iOS 11 has been iOS's (iOSes?,iOSeses?) most beta tested version to date, and it is the most buggiest iOS release ever. iOS 11 has been said to shorten the battery life of older iPhones by quite a bit. My iPhone 5s really took a hint in the battery department after the iOS 11 update. Performance also took a hit with iOS 11. Why is this so?

iOS 11 Changed A Lot iOS 11 gave users a lot of things that they had been clamouring for. A redesigned control centre , a more productive environment on the iPad so that you can actually get work done on it,  you know the works. But unknown to most of us, I think Apple redesigned the innards of iOS. They really tweaked it at the nuts and bolts level. iOS 11 updates were weird in the sense that they were unusually massive the initial update was a few gigs ( as you'd expect …

No Siri Isn't Holding Back The Homepod

So the homepod was given to Apples favourite media persons the other day and the reviews have started pouring in. One thing is strangely consistent across all these reviews, they all talk about how Siri is holding back the homepod. This really got me scratching my head. Sure Siri might not be able to tell you how much a chipmunk weighs, but really how much do we ask our smart assistants random questions. Lets took at how Siri isn't really holding the homepod back.

Siri Is Already Smart Enough No really you didn't read that wrong Siri is more smarter than you realise, especially after the iOS 11 update. Now Siri can answer all the random questions that you have. If I'm being honest here I'm of the opinion that Siri can go toe to toe with the likes of Google assistant. She can answer any random question that you can throw at her ( this wasn't the case before iOS 11). Moreover context awareness has taken off recently, one off the biggest faults with Siri used to be t…
