Apple iPhone 10s – innovations nil

This year’s traditional autumn Apple presentation was sobering and not really innovative. Where the innovation, at Apple already with Steve Jobs 2011 together seems to have died. Okay, there are three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch, but no new AirPods or a new MacBook Air. Also over AirPower announced a year ago, the mantle of silence was shrouded. With so much innovation missing from Cupertino, maybe one or two Apple fans might start to doubt their costly replacement religion, Apple.

iPhone 10s and 10s Max
The “new” Apple iPhone 10s is not really revolutionary new, just a beefed-up iPhone X, where you once again turned up the price screw. So has the iPhone 10s and 10s Max, a slightly improved processor type Apple A12 Bionic, an optimized camera with larger pixels and an optical stabilizer for the telephoto lens. Oh, and the maximum storage capacity has been increased to 512 GB.

A novelty for Apple is the support of two SIM cards, although this only with restriction, because the iPhone 10s and 10s Max supports a fixed eSIM and only a classic SIM card, a feature that the author for years on the iPhone has missed. With the iPhone 10s Max and its 6.5-inch screen diagonal, Apple accounts for the increased interest of customers in larger-screen smartphones, which have already been part of everyday life in the Android world, as well as dual-SIM.

iPhone 10r
The new “entry-level”, the iPhone Xr, comes in white, blue, black, coral, yellow and red on the market. Unlike the 10s, the iPhone 10r has a Notch LCD display called the Apple Liquid Retina. The screen is 6.1 inches tall and has a resolution of 1792×828 pixels. The iPhone 10r has no more home button, Apple is also on Face ID with the same TrueDepth camera, as well as in the “better” sister models. Also, the A12 Bionic chip is found in the device again. However, there are differences in the camera, because there is only one lens with 12 megapixel wide-angle lens and a f / 1.8 aperture and Smart HDR- including port-mode.
