Lesser-known features inside the iPhone 11

Tech Industry
The reviews are in for the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro so lets take a closer look at some of the less well known features inside the new iPhones. I'm filling in for Vanessa over the next couple of months bringing you news, rumors and deep dives into everything Apple. So the new iPhones are getting top max thanks to their cameras and improvements in battery life. You know where to find the full review in the description below if you haven't checked it already. Time to dive in to some of the internals that didn't get us much airtime this week. Let's start with one of the most significant internal additions to the new iPhone. So I'm not talking about the A13 Bionic or the battery, but something Apple didn't cover at all during the keynote. It's called the U1 chip. All of the new iPhones have it inside. This chip house ultra wideband or UWB? It's a technology to pinpoint the location of items, say, like another phone, a tracking tag Or potentially even unlock your car. UWB measures how long it takes for short radio pulses to travel between devices and then works out a precise location for the item. Remember those rumored Apple tracking tags, the tile Competitor. Well, we didn't get those at the September iPhone event, but the you one chip means that those tags could still be on the horizon. For now we only know of one official use case for the one chip in the new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro that's improved airdrop accuracy in iOS 13. If you use a drop a lot, you'll know that sometimes it takes a while to find the right person. You're trying to transfer to Especially if there are a lot of competing signals. With the UN ship you'll be able to point the iPhone towards another iPhone and your transport will be prioritized. Okay, so maybe this doesn't sound very interesting to you, right Right now but there is way more to you web than what Apple says it can do at the moment. This technology has a lot of potential diagrams that Apple's filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office give us the. Some hints. Say if you were walking up to your car, it recognizes your phone and then it automatically unlocks. Maybe you walk into the room and your laptop recognizes it's you from your phone and then starts up. Or the music could follow you from room to room on smart speakers. It could even help find your dog. Yeah, I'm not quite sure about that one, but anyway.. Apple is not the only company working on UWB either so as this technology gets standardized across the board, keep an eye on this acronym. Just because we got a new iPhone doesn't mean the rumor mill has suddenly come to a halt about the phone that we just got. So a lot of people myself included with disappointed when we didn't see the addition of reverse wireless charging. On the new iPhone. But a tweet from Laika and bloggers Sonny Dixon, as reported by MAC rumors indicates that maybe not all hope is lost. The tweet says reliable sources say the new iPhones do have the hardware for bilateral or reverse wireless charging. But it's disabled in software. So here's the thing. Apple didn't talk about hardware like the UN chip in the keynote, but it was there on the website and in the press release. Such a big upcoming feature like reverse wireless charging would make sense to tease as a coming soon, somewhere. And a day before the iPhone was announced, we saw renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo saying the feature had been scrapped. So I guess we're just gonna have to wait for the tear downs on this one, when the phone launches this Friday. Something we do have a better idea on is the iPhone batteries. According to nine to five Mac who saw documents from a Chinese regulatory agency, the iPhone 11 has a 3110 milliamp hour battery or 3110. The Pro is 3046 milliamp hour and the 11 Pro max Is almost 4000 which is actually 20% more capacity than last year's Tennis Max according to the site. No wonder it's doing so well on those battery tests. For me the most exciting part of any new phone is the cameras and the iPhone 11 does not disappoint on that front. But Apple only tells you so much about what that hardware can do. Fortunately, this week, we've got a deep dive from the developer of highlight a popular third party app. So we know the basics all our 12 megapixel cameras With an ultra wide 13 millimeter F 2.4 and regular wide angle 26 millimeter F 1.8 while the 11 Pro and Max have an extra two x telephoto zoom at 52 millimeters out of two According to highlights blog post, the wide and telephoto cameras are more sensitive to light than last year's 10s. With a higher maximum ISO. Now that would definitely help with the new night mode that merges many shots together to get a cleaner, brighter photo. The camera has a much faster minimum exposure time of one 125,000th of a second. Like, that's insane. And while we don't actually know if we as users can access that. Maybe there's some super fast shutter speed setting to uncover. Of course, this is just the hardware side of things and our testing we've shown that the night mode does provide some significant improvements over the last few slides, but we'll, Closer testing against all the night mode based like the P30 pro, Galaxy note 10+ and the upcoming Pixel 4 soon. And of course that dip fusion feature is also coming soon to. The 11th which is probably where we'll see a lot of that hardware really start to shine. We've talked a lot about the inside of the new iPhone, so it's only fair to take a look at what's on the outside. Every year apple makes both claims that its glass is the toughest ever in a smartphone this year is of course no different and that glass is the toughest ever smartphone on the front and back and a promo video for the iPhone 11 pro shows that getting pummeled by all sorts of notoriously tough. Tough object like bread sticks, broccoli and a wedding cake like okay Apple Challenge accepted, except I will skip the veggies and go straight for hard concrete. Stay tuned for the drug test. This week though, we got some more detail on the glass used on the 11 and 11 Pro models. It's custom made in Kentucky by Corning, the company behind Gorilla Glass. Now this isn't a huge surprise given that Corning has supplied the glass with every iPhone since 2007. But this deal got even more serious business this week, as Apple's gone and invested $250 million in the glassmaker the development of future iphone, apple watch, and iPad glass. Now this makes it the second major investment from Apple in the glassmaker. Gorilla Glass 6 is the latest version of Corning tough glass Also using other flagship phones out there right now like the Galaxy Note 10 plus from the company's specifications. Gorilla Glass 6 is designed to survive 15 drops from a height of one meter. That's around 3.2 feet but the head of Corning Gorilla Glass business declined to give Cnet's specifics about the toughness of the glass used on the new iPhone. But did say it was specific to Apple. And we also know that Corning is working on bendable glass maybe for Apple's remit foldable phones. And where would we be on the apple call without more rumors to propel us towards the next potential Apple events in October. This week we saw leak from macaroons claiming to show the new iPad Pro Complete with that three camera array. This one also comes from Sunny Dickenson who received a final design mockup of the camera, claiming the camera hardware is similar to the iPhone 11. Trust me, this is going to do nothing to change the stigma of taking photos with a tablet. If I see you doing this I will judge you. On last week's show I asked you if you were going to upgrade to the 11 or 11 Pro and it was a mixed bag, for some of you it was a slam dunk, and others were more reserved. The pixel productions said I'm a huge Apple fan boy. But with this release in price I'm going to be keeping my iPhone 7 plus. It's quick Candy battery health is at 85%, so I'll be keeping my phone for another year. Use the extra 600 to $1,000 for a down payment on my first house. That's incredible. well done and best of luck with the house. Danny says, well, I'm upgrading from the 6s plus While it's been a workhorse for all these years its starting to show its age lately. And that's the thing, this definitely seems like the phone for people upgrading from something like maybe a 5S, maybe a 6S, maybe even a 7. Antonio says good phones but going to wait for next year's 5G. And something fun from Minmin, who said wait for iPhone 24, Rumour has it will come with 16 cameras at the back four in each corner. You can shoot anything from microscopic pictures of germs to space photos rivalling the Hubble telescope. You heard it here first. A big thanks to everyone who sent in their comments. And if you have any thoughts on any of the features inside the iPhone 11 that we talked about or didn't even talk about this week, let me know. Or tweet me at Lexy Savvides. Thank you so much for watching and make sure to come back next week for more news and rumors on the Apple Core. [MUSIC]
