On the 6th of January Steve H.McFly, one of the most trusted informators about novelties in digital world, has posted a leak about new Iphones. According to that post, a new Iphone will be named Xl and will have 4 unsymmetricaly cameras located on a bulge. This tweet provoked mainly frustration and dissapointment. Steve has conducted a survey and 72% of people don’t like it.
Although, I have to agree that it is not the best design decision, it must have some reasonable backgrounnd, otherwise, it would be useless. Most of the people need basic things of high quality – camera, chats, mail box etc., but this new IPhone creation gives nothing special innovative. But still, few people will like it, for sure, and it may become a niche suggestion, demonstrating company’s individual approach to customers. So, we can assume, that this cameras module will bring huge benefits to the new Iphone. For example, it will have better photo and video abillities. Besides, it will definitely help measure the items with the use of Iphone and will help implement the new application on the augmented reality such as Ar MessureKit.
Yet, it is not worth paying that price for new technologgies neglecting Job’s principals of design. Wasn’t it Apple, I’d say that company has done a big mistake and, taking into account their international situation, they are digging out the grave for themselfs. But, if we speak about Apple, it’s a huge corporation, that until recently was the most capitalised company in the world, they must know what they do. The WSJ reports that Apple is going to introduce 3 new Iphones this year. Most probably it will be analogy of Iphone XS, Iphone XR and this new device.
I think, that some part of Iphone users will buy, approximetly 20% of them, Iphone Xl, because it will defenetly be the most expensive one, personaly I bet on $1599 for the cheapest configurations, and because of its strange design and the features that others Iphones won’t have. Besides, Apple still has strong cult of Steve Jobs that helps them to sell products, even though, they don’t give really different user experience, as they did before.
Personally, I’m waiting for this device, because it’s going to be the most powerfull Iphone ever. It’s a revolution, Johnny!
