Despite the latest generation of iPhones being out in the market for a couple of months, the rumors and supposed intel on the iPhone 11 have already begun. In fact, an alleged render of the upcoming iPhone 11 has surfaced, and shows what seems to be a triple camera system, with an overall layout that has resemblance to Huawei’s Mate 20 series devices. It’s still uncertain if both the larger and regular iPhone 11 will have the triple cameras, or perhaps, as from past releases, only be available on the larger iPhone 11 Max will have it. It is also reported that the successor of the iPhone XR will have dual shooters. The iPhone XR successor will also reportedly retain the Liquid Retina screen with Apple moving to an OLED-only lineup in 2020. The camera upgrade for this year’s iPhone makes a lot of sense following the incremental upgrades of…

With Apple’s recent statement regarding the battery issues on older iPhone units, Power Mac Center issued a set of guidelines on how they determine whether a device is qualified for battery replacement: Devices must undergo diagnosis to check the battery condition and other internal and external physical/accidental damage or unauthorized modification that may or may not be visible to the naked eye.

Do you want to be one of the very first to get their hands on the iPhone X? well, the good news is that Widget City is now offering pre-orders for Apple’s latest creation. But there’s a catch. A post in the store’s official Facebook page reveals the pricing for the iPhone X: it’s PhP90k for the 64GB variant, and a whopping PhP105,000 for the 256GB variant. Some would say that it’s an insane amount of money to spend for a phone. But if you think about it, you’re actually paying additional premium for early access to the latest tech. You get to experience the device before everyone else, and the reality is, some people are able to, and are willing to pay that price. Of course, prices are bound to go down as the device becomes widely available, so a little more waiting wouldn’t be a bad decision as…
