Apple products are among the hottest items on the market. Apple is now selling hundreds of millions of iPhone models every year. Last year, Apple announced the iPhone X to the public, the first iPhone model with an OLED display and Face ID. In reality, Apple iPhone lineup had not seen a significant design change for years, so the release of the X may pave the way for overhauled iPhone models. This year’s iPhone lineup retains the same design language as the iPhone X, but Apple increased the screen size on the iPhone XS Max while improving hardware components. The XS and XS Max are expected to make a gigantic hit for Apple this year. However, Apple is not just about iPhones as the company has been expanding its business for years.
The Cupertino firm now dominates the smartwatch market with more than 60 market share. Reports claim that the Apple Watch with LTE connectivity now is the best-selling wearable on the market. The newly-released Apple Watch 4 is expected to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors this year thanks to its improved design and better health features. However, iPhones and Macs have been Apple’s main focuses for years. However, they still lack some interesting features we see on other Apple products. In reality, Apple has been trying to create a comprehensive ecosystem for the last 10 years, but it seems that it has a lot of work to do to achieve that goal.
In the section below, we have created a list of the best features from Apple products iPhone and Mac need. For some background, Apple tends to add new features to iOS and macOS every time a new software update comes out, so it’s a good idea to keep your device up to date. macOS Mojave and iOS 12 are now available worldwide with tons of new exciting things.
Face ID for Mac
Face ID is Apple’s new security measure that replaces the traditional Touch ID. Face ID was first debuted on the iPhone X, offering a brand new tool for unlocking your device. Basically, Face ID takes advantage of the True Depth technology camera on the front to capture accurate face data. The coolest part is that Face ID works perfectly with sunglasses out there.
Face ID is considered as one of the most innovative iPhone features. In reality, face scanning technology is not new out there as it has been part of Android devices for years. However, Face ID proves smarter and faster than its competitors. This year, Apple has improved Face ID, making it more accurate and secure. You now can use your face recognition to authorize purchases in iTunes and App Store.
Face ID is getting every year despite its limited availability. Apple is rumored to bring Face ID to other products in the future. We are expecting to see Face ID make its way into a Mac. This makes sense seeing how Apple made Touch ID available on MacBook lineup. Touch ID for Mac receives mostly negative reviews, with most users criticizing its instability. Tech experts say that Face ID requires True Depth camera technology to work properly. So, it’s a good idea to see the same technology on a Mac. If this is the case, Apple will be struggling to integrate Face ID into its Mac due to supply issues. Last year, the Cupertino firm pushed the iPhone X release due to supply issues.
Apple Pencil on iPhone
Apple Pencil is one of the best styluses you can buy right now out there. With Apple Pencil, you can take notes and stretch your ideas directly on your tablet’s display. Apple has been improving its own stylus for years, making it better and more useful. You now can use the Apple Pencil to mark up or edit on apps as well as add annotations to screenshots.
The Apple Pencil was once exclusive to the iPad Pro lineup, but Apple expanded it to its 9.7 inch iPad in March. Sources say that Apple is planning to add Apple Pencil support to its iPhone lineup. Reports claim that Apple is testing some prototypes which appear to be new Apple Pencil at its facilities. The 3rd-gen Apple Pencil will work on future iPhone, allowing users to jot down notes. Tech experts say that the adoption of the Apple Pencil on iPhone might pave the way for a bigger screen. This adds up to previous rumors that all future iPhones would come with 6.5-inch displays. Besides, the Apple Pencil might come bundled with new iPhone at launch, eliminating the need to buy it separately.
These are two things we wish to see on future iPhones and Macs. If you have got any questions, let us know in the comments below.
