Rumors, my friends. Rumors! They just don?t stop, even within 24 hours of seeing the new iPhones. The ball? New information about ?IPhone Xs Max? (model with 6.5 ? OLED screen) and on the ?Apple Watch Series 4?.
The heaviest iPhone in the line
According to a source 9to5Mac that has already hit in the past, the ?iPhone Xs Max? will be the heaviest phone that Apple will offer in the future line of smartphones (which is no surprise, since it would be basically the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus but a structure side of stainless steel instead of aluminum).
According to them, the ?Xs Max? will weigh 208 grams against 202 grams of the 8 Plus.
We already talked about this in another article here on MacMagazine, but it is worth remembering: Apple, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, will keep the 5W chargers in the box of the new iPhones.
There was an expectation that the new devices would come with an 18W USB-C charger with fast recharging technology but, apparently, anyone who wants this benefit will have to purchase the accessory separately ? which is simply absurd since we are talking about a device (in this case, the ?Xs?) that is likely to sell for as little as $ 900; not to mention that basically all competition from Apple has already adopted more powerful chargers than those of iPhones.
Shame on you, Apple!
Asymmetrical ?iPhone Xs Max? at the bottom
Currently, iPhones have 12 holes at the bottom, divided into two sections of six. It is true that the six holes on the left side are only extras, since the speaker itself is on the direct side. There, on the left side, there is only one microphone, but Apple decided to drill five false holes precisely to maintain symmetry. For, according to the 9to5Mac, this will change in the version dual-YES of the 6.5 ? model.
In it, we would have four holes on one side and seven on the other, breaking the current design and leaving the device somewhat asymmetrical in that part. And no, this would not be to promote the much desired return of the 3.5 ? audio output. Probably (because it is something of the dual-YES) has to do with the internal storage of the components to house this second card. I just don?t understand how that would prevent Apple from putting fake holes in it ? which is why I doubt that rumor a little, but ?
In addition to the wallpaper that we saw in the leaked photo of the ?iPhones Xs?, we would also have two more of these spatial images (one matching the space gray color and the other with the silver).
64-bit processor on Apple Watch
The processors of iPhones, iPads, iPods touch and Macs are all 64-bit. On iOS, Apple doesn?t even support apps built with the 32-bit architecture in mind anymore; on macOS, Mojave 10.14 will be the last operating system to support apps like that. However, on the Apple Watch the S3 processor still has such an architecture.
This, however, should change, with the arrival of the processor S4. And if this information is confirmed, we can expect an even more significant performance increase for the Apple fourth generation watch ? in addition to a screen taking up more space (with smaller bezels), a new dial, a new Digital Crown more discreet for the LTE model, etc.
