These latest iPhone models have been expected to deliver advanced performance to those who want the best from their smartphones. The new iPhones boast a stunning display, a powerful A13 Bionic chip, and a cutting-edge three-camera system, which is a very first for the iPhone. Moreover, the new iPhones are available in a fresh palette of colors and are powered by longer battery life.
The new iPhones are available for pre-order from September 13, and available in stores from September 20. Here are some of the basic things to know about iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
The iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch LCD display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, True Tone, 1792×828 pixels, 1,400:1 contrast ratio, 79.0% screen-to-body ratio, and Dolby Vision / HDR10. Comparatively, the iPhone 11 Pro has a slightly smaller screen size with 5.8-inch OLED display.
Similar to iPhone 11, the Pro also has True Tone, Dolby Vision / HDR10, and the same aspect ratio. The screen resolution, however, is more at 2436 x 1125 pixels with 2000000:1 contrast ratio. Thus, the Pro has double the aspect ratio with 15% more efficiency. Furthermore, the screen-to-body ratio is 82.1%.
The iPhone Pro Max is larger than the other two phones with a display size of 6.5 inches. The resolution of Pro Max is also higher at 2688 x 1242 pixels with a screen-to-body ratio of 84.4%.
Compared to their earlier versions, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max are heavier. The iPhone 11 Pro measures 144 x 71.4 x 8.1 mm (5.67 x 2.81 x 0.32 in) and weighs 188 g (6.63 oz). The earlier version, iPhone XS measured 5.7×2.79×0.3 in and weighed 174 g (6.14 oz).
The Pro Max measures 158 x 77.8 x 8.1 mm (6.22 x 3.06 x 0.32 inches) and weighs 226 grams (7.97 oz.). The earlier version iPhone XS Max measured nearly the same but at a lower weight of 7.3 oz. or 208 g. However, the iPhone 11 is nearly the same as iPhone XR at 5.94 x 2.98 x 0.33 in and weighs 194 g (6.84 oz).
Another difference between iPhone 11 and the Pro is the material of the chassis; the iPhone 11 has an aluminum chassis while the Pro, as well as Pro Max, has a stainless-steel chassis. Also, the iPhone 11 has retained the glass back of the earlier versions, while the Pro and Pro Max have a matte finish, thus far lesser smudges. All the three phones have screens with a rating of IP68 for water resistance for up to 30 minutes to a depth of 4 meters.
Furthermore, the color palette of the finishes is quite wide. The iPhone 11 is available in six colors— Product (Red), black, white, yellow, green, and purple. The iPhone Pro and Pro Max are available in toned-down shades of space grey, silver, midnight green, and gold.
Apple has stepped up its game with an ultra-new camera system in the new iPhones. The iPhone 11 sports a two-camera system with a primary camera and an ultrawide camera, while iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max has a three-camera system with primary, ultrawide, and telephoto camera. The cameras are grouped in a rectangular hump in the back. While considering aesthetics, the rectangular camera humps may look bulky, but the phones promise to deliver high-definition and high-intensity photos, whether shot in daylight or at night. Also, the phones have a brighter True Tone flash than the previous iPhones. The specs of the cameras are as follows:
- Front Camera: 12MP ‘TrueDepth’ module, f/2.2 aperture
- Primary Camera: 12 MP, f/1.8 aperture, 26mm, 4K 60fps video
- Ultrawide Camera: 12 MP, f/2.4 aperture, 13mm
- Telephoto Camera: 12 MP, f/2.0 aperture, 52mm (telephoto), 2x optical zoom
A notable feature of the latest iPhones is the ability of the ultrawide camera that let users shoot action videos. Moreover, the primary camera lets users shoot videos in 4K. Despite multiple cameras, the phones have the feature of easily zooming between each of the cameras. Another first for the latest iPhones is that they let users record videos without switching out of Photo Mode with a simple feature known as QuickTake.
The iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone Pro Max come loaded with Apple’s new A13 Bionic chipset. This chipset has been known to have the fastest CPU and GPU ever in a smartphone; thus, making the new iPhones powerfully efficient. Additionally, the A13 chip is far more energy-saving than the previous A12 chipset, at nearly 40%. This gives a big boost to battery life.
One of the most important positive points of Apple’s 2019 iPhones is their long battery life. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max can reportedly last for “4 hours” more than the previous version of iPhone, that is iPhone XS; the iPhone 11 runs 1 hour longer than the iPhone XS.

Some may prefer durable designs and backlit keyboard while others may prefer a laptop having an exceptional processing power. Therefore it definitely is not easy to pick the right one. Read on and understand the different choices of the best business laptops that we have compiled in this article.

Guidelines to choose the best business laptops
Firstly, you need to understand your needs, whether you are buying the laptop for yourself or for your employees. In any case, you must buy a laptop that is powerful, durable, and easy to use. Also, you need to keep in mind that best business laptops offer better security, higher typing experience, and a stronger build compared to their personal-computer counterparts. Here are some pointers to keep in mind while buying the best business laptops for you or your employees.
The speed of the laptop
Most business entrepreneurs look for a dual-core, i5 CPU such as Core i5-7300U (vPro), Core i5-7200U or the CPU’s integrated graphics processor. However, if you are looking for 3D Modeling, video editing or creating prognostic models, you will need a high-end performance business laptop with Core i7 CPU or Core i5 and Nvidia Quadro graphics.
Well, this goes without saying. Nobody wants to run out of battery while in a middle of a hectic working day or during a long flight. It is advisable that you look for a laptop that offers a battery life of over 9 hours on a single charge. Today, many business laptops provide you with a choice of regular or extended batteries. In any case, buy a laptop that has a higher battery capacity.
You will definitely find it difficult to view from a small screen. Therefore, select a laptop that has a resolution of at least 1920×1080. Higher resolution will be even better. Do try and avoid laptops with low-resolution screens such as 1366x 768.
Most of the business laptops available today are equipped with CPUs that use the Intel vPro technology. This is helpful in cases when the laptop cannot boot. It allows the support person to log in remotely. Again, this feature is important only if you are buying a huge fleet of laptops for your team that needs to be serviced remotely, otherwise you not need this technology at all.
Depending on your business or the different kinds of connections your employees are likely to use, the right kind of port is crucial. Make sure that your laptop has an Ethernet port in case you have to connect to a wired network most of the time. If you’re into photography, ensure that the business laptops have a memory card reader. Additionally, if you get a laptop with Thunderbolt 3, do invest in it. It will allow you to connect to universal chargers, a new generation of high-speed devices.
Although it is an essential requirement in a laptop, most manufacturers overlook it. However, when buying a business laptop, make sure that the keyboard offers you a great typing experience. Look for deep travel, snappy feedback, and no flex at all.
If you want your laptop to boot faster, open programs speedily and multitask at a faster rate, your laptop must have Solid State Drives (SSDs). Mechanical hard drives are passé.
Undoubtedly, the best business laptops with all the above-mentioned features could cost you over $1,000 but you can be assured of increased productivity for several years. Take your time to shop around and gather as many reviews as possible before buying the right laptop for you.

This Touch ID can support up to five fingerprints. You can easily assign this to four other people.
Size of iPad
The iPad Air 2 is slimmer as compared to previous versions And we mean that not completely in an optimistic sense; flaking more millimeters’ off a previously whisper-light framework seems like an indulgence (a delightful one, granted, but one which is not a priority), and was seemingly attained at some cost. The size of the battery, surely (but not the battery life) and hypothetically its physical strength may be compromised.
Lighter in weight
In comparison, this iPad Air 2 is lighter than any other iPad. It is 9.4-inch high and 6.6-inch wide, which is as equal to the predecessor.

A switch for rotation lock on the right-hand side has been removed which can now be used only for up and down of the volume. On the upper right corner, there is a button for sleep and wake.
Everything about iPad Air 2 showcases premium quality. The aluminum finish, the color options, brightness, color accuracy, all look terrific

If you thought that you can watch televisions only at your home, then you are wrong. Portable TVs have emerged in the market to ensure that no soap opera lover remains behind on what is going on with their favorite shows. In order to gather all the vital information regarding TV shows and watch the latest music videos, there is hardly any substitute for this portable audio and video device.
- Smaller in size compared to other handheld devices which have a 2 inch to 4 inch LCD screen. Large screen size often makes it difficult for the users to hold it comfortably in their hands.

Keeping this issue in mind, the manufacturers often provide the users with an additional antenna that can solve this problem to some extent. Nonetheless, a strong broadcast hasn’t been achieved yet.
The issue with portable audio and video devices is that it can lead to hearing impairment. The risk of hearing damage is triggered by the continuous use of these devices and also because of the fact that people tend to use listen to movie or music at a higher volume. Regarding this matter, WHO has issued that the highest level of noise should be 85 dB and with maximum usage of 8 hours in a day.

The more you use these electronics, the more you save up on electricity bills.
Opt for kitchen gardening
Grow your vegetables and herbs in your kitchen garden or balcony gardens. The first months before the first harvest are the longest, but if you are patient enough, your tiny kitchen and balcony gardens can yield the best harvest which you can use for weeks! You can have your very own organic fruits and vegetables without paying huge amounts for these in supermarkets!
Use local transport
Use the local buses, trains, and metros to reach to your work or everyday destinations in the lowest fares and on time. This not only saves your money but also saves your time which you will end up wasting in hours of traffic. With the rising fuel prices, use your car or bike only for short distance traveling and shopping.
