Each year in September,. And with the iPhone 11 (or as it will be called) approaching, it's time for Apple to step up. in the fiscal third quarter, more people and competitors like Samsung's Note 10 and 10 Plus were filled with plenty of compelling Features. The iPhone does not need a radical redesign, but in order for Apple to succeed next, it will need at least seven enhancements and updated features if it is to remain competitive in this increasingly crowded phone industry.
Better Battery Life
The iPhone XS has made significant improvements to the battery life of the iPhone X, and the larger iPhone XS Max lasted 17 hours and 23 minutes in our video loop cycles. Although it's a solid time, phones like the Galaxy S10 Plus and the Huawei P30 Pro last 21 and 23 hours respectively.has a lot of room for iPhone enhancements.
Fortunately, iOS 13 is expected to make downloads and launches of applications, including FaceID faster and more efficient. Dark mode can also help. When displaying black screens and menu pages, the OLED screen uses less power, which in some small way can help to drain the battery too quickly.
The following processor, probably called A13, can also help improve battery life, especially if expected, to be more efficient than last year's A12 processor. But what I want to see in Apple's keynote of 2019 is Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing manager, to show a slide for the iPhone 11 that reads "30% longer battery."
Papa needs a brand new screen
There's absolutely nothing wrong with OLED displays on the iPhone X, XS and XS Max. But withon the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, Note 10 and 10 Plus, and the OnePlus 7 Pro with its high refresh rate, Apple needs to step it up.
It can be as simple as enhancing the brightness and color gamut of the next iPhone screen. Better yet, Apple can bring Pro Motion to the iPhone. Pro Motion is Apple's brand of high-speed refresh display in its iPad Pro line. The screen refreshes 1.5X to 2X faster than a regular phone or tablet display. The result is that everything looks cleaner and the animations go smoothly. If the rumors are correct, there may be an iPhone Pro. And maybe the word "Pro" means a Pro Motion display.
Plug in a quick charge cable and a power brick
Once the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X have been released, you can quickly charge the battery to drain it faster, but this requires you to buy a USB-C cable to Lighting for $ 19 and a charger for $ 29 of 18 watts. It would be easy for Apple to win just to put them in the box at no extra charge. Especially since many people already have the old USB-A to Lighting cable and 5W charger. Seriously, we're already paying $ 999 for a phone.
Add a better selfie camera or two
Sometimes there is a feeling that selfie cameras on phones are designed. The iPhone XR, XS and XS Max is good, but it can be much better. The new iPhone needs a higher resolution front camera that will improve detail and image quality. And please let's bring selfie video recording up to 4K resolution. I know that there are people who do not want to see every imperfection in such detail, in which case they can always record at a lower resolution.
It would also be reasonable if, instead of a fixed focal front camera, a selfie camera with an auto focus like the one found on the Galaxy S10. This will ensure that you are never in focus. But the best improvement will be Apple, adding a second wide-angle front camera such as the Pixel 3 and LG G8. Imagine having two FaceTime cameras ?! In general, the iPhone's front camera should be close in quality to those at the back.
Rear Camera Upgrade and Image Processing
Since the iPhone 4, Apple has always had a solid camera system on its back. from their phones. But in recent years, phones such as the Huawei P30 Pro and Pixel 3 have surpassed the photo capabilities of the iPhone, especially in low light. Although there are rumors that the iPhone 11 will have three rear cameras, let's hope that all new cameras will have bigger sensors with larger pixels to take in more light.
Apple needs to add some kind of "night" mode, similar to Huawei and Pixel, that take several pictures and combine them to improve image quality and exposure. Of course, one of my favorite things about camera effects, such as iPhone portrait lighting mode, is how you can see a preview of the effect before taking a picture. Perhaps Apple's night mode would work more like its Pano mode, in which you can see how the picture is taken while being shot and processed.
And speaking of new modes, if the iPhone 11 has three rear cameras, I'll be curious to see what things Apple decides to do with them.that can take a picture with each of its three rear cameras at the touch of a shutter. There are rumors that Apple's triple camera may be able to correct framing errors. For example, if you accidentally cut one of the frames, the iPhone might use data it shot with the ultra-wide camera to "repair" the missing person.
Then there is the video. The iPhone is currently recording the best video on any phone, and yet it would be great to see Apple take things further. This could add portrait mode to videos like the LG V50 and the Galaxy Note 10 which are quite messy or even add something ridiculous and video-centric as a zoom effect on the Alfred Hitchcock Dolly zoom.
Lastly, both in terms of photos and videos, the Smart HDR in its current appearance on the iPhone XS is very heavy, especially the way it pushes out the color temperature and saturation of some really artificial places. The next iPhone needs a more balanced Smart HDR.
One thing that is often taken for granted are the huge leaps that Apple makes in the processing power of the iPhone year after year. If there were awards for the most valuable part of the iPhone, I would give it to the A Series processors.
Apple again this year has to release a processor that is not only more powerful than the A12 Bionic, but also one that is more -effective. The iPhone XS A12 Bionic processor is already several generations ahead of those found on the latest Android phones, but any ways to make the iPhone 11 more efficient will go a long way to improving battery life. It's all about that battery. Plus the A13 Efficient has a nice bell (OK doesn't actually do it).
iPhone needs a better name
Apple simultaneously came up with the coolest name for a phone and the worst when it released the iPhone X – pronounced "ten", not "ex". Yes, Roman numerals don't really work for the iPhone. It's confusing and makes me think of a Super Bowl or outline I'm writing about course work.
I hope Apple goes back to something simpler. Maybe just call the new phone: iPhone. And if there is a more powerful version, call this iPhone Pro. Let's stop this business with Roman numerals.
