    Apple Watch Series 3 requires an iPhone 6 or later for setup; battery gets 1 hour of talk time

    12 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Apple announced yesterday that unlike previous versions of the Apple Watch, the new Series 3 model does not need to be paired to a nearby iPhone for internet access, or to make/take phone calls. But it still requires an iPhone to configure the timepiece. And while the Series 1 Apple Watch can still use the Apple iPhone 5s and up to communicate with and to set up the device, the new Series 3 watch requires an Apple iPhone 6 or higher for the configuration and set up of the timepiece. The phone must have iOS 11, or higher, installed.
    This means that if you are moving up from a Series 1 Apple ...

    A lot of small but very important things come together to make the iPhone X great for Augmented Reality.
    With a simple software update, iOS 11 will enable a universe of Augmented Reality experiences on millions of iPhones.

During the iPhone X presentation, Apple's Phil Schiller said this future-forward iPhone was "specially tuned" to deliver the best Augmented Reality experiences. What does that mean, and how different will Augmented Reality be on this new...

    Why did Apple avoid talking about Android in the iPhone X announcement?

    12 days ago - By Phone Arena

    In many ways, the Apple event unveiling the new iPhone 8, iPhone X, Apple Watch series 3, and Apple TV 4K was business as usual for Tim Cook and company. There were plenty of features in Apple products that were legitimately new as well as plenty of other features that Apple talked up quite a bit but have been part of the smartphone ecosystem for years. One thing that was odd though was that there were no mentions or even backhand swipes at Google, Samsung, or Android.
    Sure, there weren't necessarily a ton of opportunities for Apple to gloat. Apple is the number one watch maker ...

    It seems natural to take Apple's latest creation, the iPhone X , as the culmination of the company's decade of experience, its successes and failures, all sealed into this forward-thinking device. By looking back at what came before is the way we usually come to understand a new phone. But when it comes to the X, which Apple unveiled in celebration of the ten years that have passed since the launch of the very first iPhone , things are different. Sandwiched between this and the debut of the iPhone are many devices, each trying something new and each informing how we think the future of...

    So, Apple unveiled 3 new phones, as rumored. We have the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus duo, which are basically upgraded versions of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. That makes it the 4th year in a row that Apple reiterates the design language of the iPhone 6, but hey - the 8 has a glass back, so that's different.
    Then, we have the iPhone X - a handset that revolutionizes the Apple lineup with an all-screen front, a complete lack of a home button and Touch ID, and... well there's not much more in there. For those of you that were super-hyped by the rumors leading up to the ...

    In contrast, Touch ID, the fingerprint recognition method used in iPhones in the past few years, supports up to 5 different fingerprints, which makes sharing your phone with family members much easier.

    Yesterday's keynote was not without its challenges for Apple. First, thanks to our digging into the leaked code , there were few surprises.
    Second, there was the fact that Apple had to kick-off with the understudy. The iPhone 8 - for all the features it borrowed from the iPhone X - looked very much like the iPhone 7, which itself looked very much like the iPhone 6. It was hard to make an iPhone 6sss seem too exciting - especially when everyone was waiting for the main act.
    And then there was the failed Face ID demo. The flagship iPhone X feature falling over the first time it was...
