In fear for Apple bloated battery iPhone 8 Plus

In fear for Apple bloated battery iPhone 8 Plus

This year Apple made news with the iPhone X, and more importantly, the introduction of Face ID feature for facial recognition.

Apple will include Face ID in the iPad in an attempt to bridge the gap between the iPhone and iPad user experience, Kuo wrote in a note to investors.

While the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus follow a design language similar to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, respectively, Apple's tenth anniversary iPhone X sports a brand new design for the company with a near bezel-less display, powerful specs and a larger battery capacity.

But the phone's notch has a second, possibly unintended goal that is becoming more evident as we approach the iPhone X's November 3rd release date.

Citigroup expects "volatility" in Apple's shares in the near term but repeated a "buy" rating, saying customers waiting for the iPhone X will pave the way for 2018 results ahead of expectations.

Making the rather counter-intuitive remarks during an interview on stage at the New Yorker TechFest when asked how the iPhone has changed the world, Ive said: "Like any tool, you can see there's wonderful use and then there's misuse".

According to Kuo, Apple's move is likely inspired by the company's broader plan of an "ecosystem development" which will benefit if all high-end iOS devices are equipped with TrueDepth Cameras. Because the iPhone X will only be available in limited numbers, Kuo says that many users are instead opting to purchase the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. In order to get Apple's top-of-the-line features, consumers will need to fork over the cash for the most expensive models.

Given Face ID is considered a replacement or Touch ID, it's probably only a matter of time before Apple begins bringing it to other devices. Thus, adding Face ID on iPad Pro would be a huge step in that direction, especially since the iPad Pro models are like the iPhone X of Apple's tablet line. Developers will also be able to create apps that utilise Face ID. The problem, according to Scribner, is that for Apple to score revenue $30 billion above expectations for fiscal year 2018, the company would have to ship 290 million iPhone units during the new fiscal year that started at the beginning of this month. Not only will the 2018 iPad Pro models adopt the technology, but all 2018 iPhones may as well.
