It’s Finally Here, The Next Generation iPhone

It’s been a long time coming, but the next generation iPhone is finally here! After many months of rumors circulating about the features of the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, I am happy to say that Apple did not disappoint. On the contrary, the iPhone event that took place earlier this month only made me more excited for the public release of Apple’s newest product.

The Next Generation iPhone

In case you’ve been living under a rock, on September 12th, Apple held an iPhone launch event. At this event, Apple announced the public release of three next gen iPhones; the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the highly anticipated iPhone X. Much like previous iPhone generations, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are an incremental update over the iPhone 7. The iPhone X, on the other hand, is the completely redesigned smartphone we’ve all been waiting for. Boasting the most powerful processor on the market today, along with a variety of new features, the iPhone X is poised to be the most sought after smartphone this holiday season. Let’s take a look at some of these exciting new features.

Wireless Charging

The new line of iPhones now offers wireless charging.

This has been on every Apple fanboy’s wish list for sometime now. Wireless charging has been a standard feature on the iPhone’s biggest rival, the Samsung Galaxy, for some time now. People have wondered when Apple would jump on board and add it to the next generation iPhone. I think I speak for everyone when I say I was slightly disappointed that the iPhone 7 did not have wireless charging capabilities. That being said, Apple has certainly made it up to us. Wireless charging is now the standard for this entire generation of iPhone models.

Edge-To-Edge OLED Screen

Perhaps the most exciting feature, exclusive to the iPhone X, has to be the new screen. While the physical dimensions of the iPhone X is closer to that of the iPhone 8 than the Plus, the screen itself is actually larger than the Plus’ screen. This is thanks to the edge-to-edge design. In addition to this, the OLED screen provides a higher contrast ratio and the ability to play HDR video. Because it doesn’t require a backlight, black colors tend to look much deeper.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is one of the hottest things in the technology world. The success of games like “Pokémon GO” is evidence of that. It’s no wonder that Apple finally jumped on the bandwagon by developing AR capabilities in its newest iPhones. These models are equipped with cameras that have been specially designed for the ultimate AR experience. Now, iPhone users can fully enjoy the newest AR apps and games out there.

The Evolution of Mobile Computing

The consumer electronics industry has experienced significant advancements in the last 10 years. Traditional, desktop computers eventually advanced into bulky laptops. As laptops became thinner, the industry gave way to smartphones and tablets as well. This industry has come an awfully long way since the first computers were released. With this new wave of electronics, it’s easier than ever to use an address finder. You can look up any address and find out who it belongs to. There is also a plethora of other information that can be found on the Internet.

The release of the iPhone was a game changer. Millions of people own this smartphone, and if they don’t own one, they certainly know someone who does. The iPhone cleared the way for tablets and other mobile, touchscreen devices to become household items.

The Desktop Computer

The desktop computer was where it all began when it comes to home computers. I’m sure many people are wondering if they’ll ever own one again. Since the rise of the laptop and the tablet, the desktop has become much less commonplace. They’re hard to move around and they can’t be taken on the go. But, it can’t be denied that many people have taken advantage of the computing power of the desktop computer. They can easily utilize one for an address finder, web search, and more. Today, the desktop computer is still a great value for its price.

The Laptop

Apple's MacBook is one of the most popular products on the market.

Apple’s MacBook is popular among employees, students, and more.

One of the biggest advantages of a laptop is that it can be taken anywhere. These days, there are countless different laptops on the market. Apple’s MacBook is the most popular one, but there are a lot of other great companies out there that manufacture their own laptops. Today, the laptop is one of the most common portable devices. Chances are, whether you’re a student or you’re in the workforce, you probably use a laptop to get the job done. 

The Smartphone

Even though it’s only a smartphone, the iPhone revolutionized the entire mobile computing world. It brought touchscreen abilities of the future to the here and now. Plus, it paved the way for other devices to follow a similar approach. Although it has some competition, other smartphones simply aren’t as popular as the iPhone.

While many consider smartphones to be more of a phone than a computer, at the end of the day, they’re basically little computers that we carry around with us. They have had an enormously powerful impact on the consumer electronics industry and on the way that people think about computers. In addition, they let us look up information, use an address finder, and watch videos wherever we are. The next iPhone will make even more of an impact on the industry. It’s rumored that the device could be made entirely of glass.

The Tablet

Tablets are the fusion of laptops and smartphones. From the iPad Pro to the Microsoft Surface, they’ve redefined the way that people think about computers today. One of the advantages of a tablet is that people can type using touch screen technology or a detachable keyboard.

The consumer electronics is one of the fastest changing industries out there. In fact, electronics are developing faster than any other industry. Maybe that’s why we love them so much. Just don’t get too attached to your newest device. By this time next year, it might be obsolete.
