Apple is anticipated to announce not less than two new iPhone fashions subsequent week that could be referred to as the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Plus. As is the case yearly, the brand new telephones will function the newest in processor expertise and improved cameras.
However there are a number of options at the moment lacking from the iPhone which are already current on competing handsets and ones that might technically be simply applied on an iPhone.
Twin SIM help
Apple has lengthy uncared for the twin SIM band-wagon, which has nearly grow to be a normal on Android telephones and is a required function for a lot of in markets equivalent to India and China.
Flagship telephones from Huawei and Samsung have been supporting twin SIM playing cards for a number of years now. It actually makes travelling along with your cellphone much more handy and reasonably priced. Many individuals additionally use it at dwelling by paying one telco for calls and the opposite for information.
There are strong rumors that Apple might be releasing an iPhone with dual SIM this yr, because of code discovered on beta variations of iOS, although it is not clear which fashions of the iPhone will get this function.
A 120Hz ProMotion show
Keep in mind while you first noticed the retina display screen on the iPhone four and every little thing else paled as compared? Transferring to a panel with greater refresh charges has an analogous impact and Apple has already accomplished that on the 10.5-inch iPad that includes a “ProMotion” show.
The fluidness of scrolling net pages or the animation results in iOS actually stand out, and would make it into an ideal function on the iPhone. Apple may presumably prohibit this to the bigger iPhone XS Plus to distinguish between the 2 fashions and possibly even embrace help for Apple Pencil.
Launch digital camera with a button
Launching the digital camera on the iPhone requires a faucet or swipe on the display screen, whereas many Android producers permit launching the digital camera by double urgent the facility or quantity buttons.
This motion enables you to get to the digital camera app within the time it takes so that you can maintain the cellphone as much as take an image.
All the time on show
Do you end up double tapping the iPhone X each jiffy simply to see the time or any notifications? An always-on show is turning into more and more widespread on Android telephones geared up with an OLED panel and we would like to see this function on an iPhone.
OLED screens are fairly environment friendly in the case of selectively powering up the cellphone’s display screen. With Apple switching to OLED final yr on the iPhone X, there’s little cause to not help this function and would give us much less causes to select up or double faucet the iPhone.
Exchange Lightning port with USB-C Port
That is a kind of issues that can by no means occur, however it might be extraordinarily handy to cost your Mac and your iPhone with the identical cable. Nevertheless, aside from that, there’s no cause for Apple to modify to a USB Kind-C port on the iPhone, particularly with the incompatibilities that Android customers have confronted connecting headsets to that port.
One can dream although, proper?
We’ll solely know which (if any) of the these options make it to the brand new 2018 model of the iPhone at Apple’s iPhone 2018 launch event, scheduled for September 12.
