iPhone 12 secrets leaked in phone blueprint

Published

on

A new set of images of the next iPhone show that 2020 will be a game-changer for the line’s industrial design. This new version of the iPhone, likely called iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, will have a design that merges the most beloved elements of the past several generations. That includes the flat, single-panel backside, the uniquely shaped display up front (complete with a collection of cameras/sensors), and a set of flat sides. This is a new generation of iPhone, to be sure.

The imagery leaked today shows what’s included in the front-facing collection of sensors, speakers, and cameras. Before now, this “notch” section included an infrared camera, flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, speaker / microphone, a single front camera, and a dot projector. Now it’ll include an infrared camera, flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, speaker/microphone, a single front camera, and a dot projector.

But wait, you might be saying – isn’t that the same list of items that were in the device before? Yes, pretty much. Where the microphone previously noted as a separate element in Apple’s official layout on Apple.com, here we see the speaker shown as a single element – but the microphone is in that one shape. By the time we get Apple’s take on the layout in official consumer-facing graphics, we might well get an indicator for the exact location of the microphone.

The layout and spacing of the elements we see here show a maturing of technology. There’s less need for space in-between individual elements, so the “notch” can shrink in size significantly. Not that Apple’s trying to get rid of the notch altogether – but still, it’s definitely less of a major factor in the aesthetic of the phone.

This next-generation iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, etc., will have a far more svelte look to it. Where the space from the display to the very end of the phone was nearly as big as the (then larger) notch area, now the space between the display and the edge of the phone is smaller even than the notch, which itself is significantly smaller than the original notch.

The iPhone 12 collection will – if precedent acts as indicator – be revealed in September of 2020. The devices will likely launch inside of October of 2020. A lot of elements here remeain unknown largely because of the global pandemic to which we are all currently subject. At the same time, Apple DID launch an iPhone SE this year – so we’ll see!

Here’s How You Can Create Your Own Ebook In Microsoft Word

Published

on

After the last page of your main content, you should add an “About the Author” page. This is where you include fun things about yourself, your career highlights, and even other eBooks you’ve written in the past. It’s also a good idea to mention your social media links and website, so your readers can find you online easily.

When writing your author content, Rocket Expansion suggests using a tone that matches your brand. It could be witty, formal, fun, or anything else that reflects your eBook topic and previous work. For instance, if you’re writing about the stock market, you should use a formal tone. If you’re a fiction writer, use a witty and fun tone instead.

You might also want to add a picture to your author page. To do that in Microsoft Word, here are the steps to follow (via Microsoft):

  1. Click on your author page.
  2. Go to the Insert tab.
  3. In the Illustrations section, select Pictures > This Device.
  4. Locate the photo you want to add.
  5. Select Insert.
  6. Resize the photo how you want by dragging the corners.
  7. Crop and style the photo using the styles available in the “Picture Styles” section.

24% Of Apple Fans Think This Is The Best New Feature Of The MacOS Ventura

Published

on

With more than 25.08% of the votes, a slim majority of our poll respondents chose the newfound ability to generate live captions within a FaceTime call as their favorite macOS Ventura feature. For those unaware, this feature automatically generates captions and transcribes them on screen — making it easy for everyone to follow the conversation. The feature seems to be a hot favorite among Apple users despite the fact that it is still in Beta and that it only supports a limited set of languages.

One of the major feature additions to the Mail app on macOS Ventura is the ability to undo sending an email. With 24.26% of our respondents voting for this as their favorite, it is evident that it’s a welcome feature. However, in the default setting, users will need to click on the “Undo Send” option at the bottom of the sidebar of the Mail app within 10 seconds of sending an email for it to work. Thankfully, users have the option to change this time duration from within Mail settings.

In the third position — with 19.31% of the votes — was the much talked about Continuity Camera feature, which lets Mac users transform their iPhones into a webcam. While the main purpose of the feature was to enhance the video conferencing capabilities of Mac systems using the iPhone’s powerful camera hardware, Continuity Camera was mostly in the news because of a nifty new feature called “Desk Mode.” This mode used the iPhone’s ultra wide-angle camera to show a top-down view of the desk and the users’ faces simultaneously.

Vietnamese Automaker’s EV Shipment Is Big Competition For The US

Published

on

Bloomberg reports that VinFast is exporting 999 electric vehicles to the U.S. market. The electric vehicles were dispatched on Nov. 25, and they’re expected to arrive in California right around Christmas. The specific model that is en route to the U.S. is the VinFast VF 8 — a 402 hp electric SUV with a battery range of 292 miles. This is similar to the VF 32 model that was unveiled last year. With a price tag of about $41,000, the VinFast VF 8 will be competing with the likes of the Volkwagen ID.4, Tesla Model Y, and Hyundai Ioniq 5.

Another model, the VinFast VF 9, is scheduled to be shipped out from Vietnam in January. But unlike the VF 8, the VF 9 model will include a bigger battery to increase the range up to 342 miles after a full charge. Just like the VF 32 model that was unveiled last year, the VF 9 is designed with all-wheel drive dual electric motors to optimize performance. All VinFast electric vehicles that will be sold in the U.S. will have a battery warranty of 125,000 miles or 10 years.

However, the VinFast VF 8 and VF 9 will not qualify for the new tax credit because they’re not assembled in North America. Then again, VinFast is working to solve that problem since it’s building an electric vehicle manufacturing plant in North Carolina. “As soon as we start manufacturing cars in the U.S., our customers will be eligible (for) the tax incentive,” Le Thi Thu Thuy, the CEO of VinFast told Reuters. The Vietnamese company has also received about 65,000 pre-orders from the international market, and 17,000 bookings from the U.S.
