WHAT IS THE NEWEST iPHONE ?

Details on the new Iphone 13:

A new report from “POCKET LINT” has given me this information about the newest Iphone Model 14, coming out this SEPTEMBER:

Apple typically announces a new iPhone every September, and there’s usually more than one model to choose from. Every year, the number changes but the number doesn’t correlate with the year it was announced, which means it can be a little tricky to keep with which is the newest iPhone. 

HERE ARE THE DETAILS OF THE NEW IPHONE 13:

We’ve got an entire feature dedicated to the Differences between the Iphone 13 to help you work out which is the right iPhone 13 model for you if you want the latest model.

As a quick summary, the the Iphone 13 PRO and 13 PRO MAX have the same features as each other but they differ in size and display size. The same goes for the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13, with the differences just being physical size and screen size.

The Pro models offer extra features over the standard iPhone 13 models though, including a more premium finish, faster refresh rate display, bigger batteries, a third camera lens, a LiDAR sensor, different storage options and a different GPU.

What is the next iPhone and when is it coming?

The next Apple iPhone is expected to be called the iPhone 14 and it is expected to be announced in September 2022. There are expected to be four models again, though no an iPhone 14 mini. Rumours suggest we will see an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

APPLE LIVE CAPTIONS TO BE A BIG SELLING POINT :

With Live Captions, if you want to watch a video with the volume off, you can read automatically generated captions at the bottom of your screen in real time. Apple said it can be used on streaming services, FaceTime calls, and other video conferencing apps. This is a useful feature for anyone, and for the hearing loss community, it’s an accessibility feature that will make it easier to watch videos on the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch. A similar feature is already available on Google Pixel phones and select Android phones.

Like Google’s approach, Apple said its captions will be generated on your devices, keeping your information private. But the company hasn’t yet said how you’ll enable Live Captions.

Apple’s Live Captions will transcribe any audio content in English across the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

GOOGLE 6 PRO CAMERA WITH FACIAL RECOGNITION!

New Google 6 Pro now utilizes face recognition to unlock your phone!

Have you ever really thought about who the biggest guns in the cell phone industry are? Yes, Apple is big, Samsung is big, and Google? The biggest and most powerful company in the world is looking to make their presence known by incorporating features that no one has done yet (at least to my knowledge). With the recent update to Android systems, there was a new feature available in the upgrade that allows the camera(s) to use facial recognition to unlock your phone.

Google could be preparing to finally enable facial recognition in its Pixel 6 range for the first time since launch, at least, if a couple of snippets of evidence are anything to go by. 

According to a user on Reddit, their Pixel 6 Pro showed Face Unlock as an option during set up, where usually the only biometric option is fingerprint scanning. 

Following this user report, 9to5 Google did some digging and found that Pixel 6 Pro Android 12 builds have referenced the facial recognition references as early as October 2021. Is it as secure as fingerprint scanning that many phones are using now? As I think about it, it would have to do 3D imaging to make it anywhere as secure as a fingerprint. Who’s to say, someone couldn’t just pick up a photo of you and point it at the camera and unlock your phone. However, this feature will only be available on the Pro Model, so chances are they have figured out a way to make it secure.

Google Pixel 6a will be as powerful as Pixel 6

New Google Pixel 6a is as powerful as the 6

(Pocket-lint) – Google’s Pixel 6a has been rumoured for some time now, with most reports suggesting it will launch in May during Google’s Developer I/O conference.

Many of the rumours have claimed the mid-range device would run on the same hardware as the flagship Pixel 6, with Googles Tensor Chip under the hood and the most recent leak supports this.

The Google Pixel 6a has appeared on Geekbench alongside the Pixel 6and the tests see the Pixel 6a doing better in both the single-core and multi-core tests, suggesting it will be as powerful as its flagship brother. But, it’s designed to be a midrange priced phone so this is making the mid-grade market even more exciting.

The Google 6 could be the most surprising phone / camera in the market today.

GOOGLE IS NOW MAKING THEIR OWN IMAGE SENSORS

There are two big talking points with the Pixel 6: the unique design and the Google-made processor. This focus on creating a phone that’s visually distinct from everything else on the market while also investing in its own home-grown silicon suggests Google is taking this whole smartphone thing very seriously. And the Pixel 6 is one great result of that.

The Pixel 6 is undoubtedly the worst kept tech secret in recent years. Predominantly because Google hasn’t really wanted to keep it a secret. Instead of keeping hush on the leaks when they first surfaced, Google confirmed them and has been pushing big marketing bucks behind the phone in the run-up to the official announcement.

Google’s messaging has very much been that this is the next cool thing, an Android phone for people with their finger on the pulse, those who want to be different to everyone else. It’s a trendy phone. With its unique design and fresh software experience, it’ll certainly get people interested, that’s for sure. 

It’s safe to say that whether you look at it from the front or the back, the Pixel 6 doesn’t quite look like any other Android smartphone on the planet. It’s about as different as a glass rectangle can be. 

Part of that distinctiveness is down to the design of the frame and bezel. It’s very angular and right-angled, but still has skinny bezels. Rather than go with a rounded appearance around the corners with an internal curved corner in the bezel, Google has opted to make them much more square. In a way it almost has a Nokia Lumia-esque vibe about it. To us, that’s a good thing. 

The size and weight mean the Pixel 6 is hardly the most nimble smartphone on the market, but Google has tried to alleviate some of your potential stretching by adding a one-handed mode in Android 12. Similar to Apple’s Reachability feature in iOS, this lets you drag down content from the top of the screen further down, so you can reach it with a thumb.

It’s on the back of the phone you’ll find the most striking difference between the Pixel and other phones. Just one glance and anyone will see it’s not quite the same as other devices. There’s no rectangular, square or pill-shaped camera protrusion in the corner. Instead, Google has spread the camera unit across the entire width of the phone. 

BECAUSE THE CELL PHONE INDUSTRY SEEMS TO HAVE A LOT OF NEW TECHNOLOGY THAT PHOTOGRAPHERS WILL USE AND ENJOY, WE WILL BE DOING REGULAR FEATURES ON CELL PHONE TECHNOLOGY AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE. WE WANT TO KEEP YOU UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST IN THE CELL PHONE MARKET AS WELL, SO KEEP CLOSE TO 123PHOTOGO FOR THE LATEST IN CELL PHONE TECHNOLOGY AND FEATURES YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN.

TIPS ON HOW TO TAKE PHOTOS OF “SOMETHING WEIRD”

51 DIFFERENT SUBJECTS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY! AND I AM GOING TO DO THEM ALL!

Going down the list of “subjects in Photography”, I still keep coming to this thought: “How did anyone ever come up with this list?” Because some of these subjects are really strange, and honestly, I don’t know that some of these are real subjects. So, I will attempt to cover each of these subjects, no matter how strange they are, because someone may find some great tips on how to do a special assignment.

And today’s subject is: “HOW TO TAKE PHOTOS OF SOMETHING WEIRD”. When I read that, the first thing that came to mind was: What might be weird to me, may not be weird to everyone else”. So, with that in mind, the best I can do is try to cover this subject from my perspective. At least the photos may be really strange, and at least entertaining.

As I was looking over the photos that are available to me, and the many different styles of “weirdness” you can find, the one thing I think makes a great “weird” photo, is just to take the photo when you see, and don’t let it pass you.

Have you ever seen something really weird, and did not take a photo, but, when you got to a group of friends or family, you want to tell them all about the “weird thing you saw this day, and you have to explain it, rather than just show them a photo.

We live in a wonderful world right now, as far as being able to take photos. If you don’t carry your camera with you, will certainly be the time you see something “weird”. So, your next best alternative is to use the camera that is built in to your cell phone. And the newer cell phones take pretty good photos. They won’t compare with a good DSLR digital camera, but, it’s what you got at the time, and it will work.

Now the time to take photos of “weird” things, is when it just seems so “out of the ordinary” for this to happen. This photo above, has a story to this, and that is why it becomes even “weirder” : Derelict scene of a piano played by a broken manequin. I came across this setting when walking in the middle of nowhere near the city of Vallorbe, Switzerland.

Another thing to do to get some “weird” photos, is to have your family or friends help you create the “weird” Photo. Get some help from them by having them do the weird thing that makes them your friend. Everyone can pull faces, or stand on their head, so get pictures of that. It will be good for you collection as well.

A photographer who captures great “weird” photos, is one who can just grab their camera, or their cell phone, and get it quick before something changes. These kind of images are usually rare and timing is everything.
