The LCD iPhone X Will Be The Most Popular 2018 iPhone

Image result for iphone XFinally the iPhone X hype has died down and we're already hyped about the next iPhone release. We're just two months into the year and we've already got rumours about the 2018 iPhones.

Ming-Chi-Kuos Got Us Covered

Trusted leaker Ming Chi Kuo recently let out a report stating that Apple might release 3 new iPhones in 2018 and at first glance this may seem a little confusing when you look at it in context of the rumored feature set.

Yeah that line up definitely raises a few questions. Would Apple really backtrack to an LCD panel after all that talk about how an OLED finally rose to the standards of the iPhone? To that I say yes, yes they would. 

Most People Dont Want To Spend A $1000 On A Phone

Despite the amazing sales of the iPhone X which actually grew rather than contracted as per most reports. Most people still don't want to shell out a $1000 as shown by the strong iPhone 8/+ sales. So it would be a good idea to reduce the asking price of Apples new flagship.But the iPhone X is one costly cookie to produce. With its OLED panel itself costing upwards of $110. Thats almost one tenth of the cost of the entire product for just the display. So if you wanted a cheaper iPhone X the display is one area that you could compromise on to signiicantly lower the cost of the device.But would such a device sell? We've seen that everyone loves the design and a lot more people would have upgraded to the iPhone X if it weren't for its price tag. As per the rumours so far you're getting the complete iPhone X experience with the rumoured LCD version Face ID and everything. So I do Believe that the device would sell well.

LCD Vs OLED

We've all been hearing about how amazing OLED is over LCD, about how OLED has deeper blacks and how contrast is much better on the OLED panel.But after having used the iPhone 7 and 8 for a while I've personally not had any issues with the LCD panel on either. They both look gorgeous, as they should. Sure you can see the differences when you put them side by side and even then it's not that obvious. So I don't think that having LCD on a 2018 iPhone would be that much of a deal-breaker. Apple has been pushing the limits of LCD technology and it really does show in their LCD panels. So you're really getting a really good deal on the LCD iPhone X and if it means a lower price of even $700 or $800 people will be willing to upgrade for the new design and Face ID.

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…
