Buy Apple stock for the long term according to analysts

According to a Wall Street company, in this year, iPhone X’s innovative features will bring a bonus.

Piper Jaffray reiterated the excess ratings for smartphone makers and predicted next year, Apple will benefit from better monitors and 3D sensors to the rest of its iPhone line. Analyst Michael Olson wrote to clients on Thursday that “Why AAPL Can Keep Working: ‘Super Cycle’ Is Now ‘Super Long Cycle.'”, according to which, Apple may be more and more likely to experience the development of a formidable iPhone for many years Tracks, instead of short-term “super cycles.” In addition, the iPhone cycle is believed to be extended in FY18 and then there will be more iPhone X “offspring” in the fall of 2018, as people become more aware and interested in Augmented Reality after developers plugging new use cases and long-term backside 3D sensors into the app store.

Analysts expect that Apple will introduce three better OLED displays next year. In addition, he said, three-dimensional sensor supplier will be required to increase threefold volume next year. He writes that the iPhone X’s offspring could broaden iPhone users’ interests in the fall of 18.

Apple is one of the biggest performers in the market so far this year. Its shares have rallied 46% compared with the S&P 500’s 17% gain through Wednesday. And after the report, the company’s stock rose 0.8% on Thursday as well.

Apple’s iPhone X launched on Nov. 3 with the price of $999.

18 iPhone X Tips and Tricks you need to know

Many of the iPhone X features are innovative, but some of them are not quite as obvious. The following are 18 iPhone X tips that you should know about:

1. Power Off/Medical ID/Emergency Call With The iPhone X
To turn off the power, pull out a medical ID, or an emergency call with your iPhone X, you need to press and hold the side buttons and any of the volume buttons at the same time. Then slide to turn off the device, pull up the medical ID, or make an emergency call.

2. Double Tap The Side Button For Apple Pay

3. Set Up Animoji
You can use facial expressions to customize animated messages (called Animoji) using the Face ID facial recognition system built into the iPhone X front by going to the message, clicking on the App Store icon, and clicking on the monkey with its mouth open. Then scroll to select an Animoji and touch and hold the red recording icon or click Animoji to send an animated photo. Animoji videos can be recorded for up to 110 seconds and sent via iMessage.

4. Close Apps That Are Open
To close an application that is open on the iPhone X, you need to activate the application switcher by swiping from the bottom home indicator and dragging the application to the right. Then press the app for a few seconds until you see the red button at the top of each app card. You can then slide the application as you would on any other iPhone, or click the red button to close the application. This is useful if you want to turn off applications that run in the background, such as streaming music applications or GPS applications.

5. Take A Screenshot With The iPhone X
Simply tap on the side button and the top volume button to take a screenshot on the iPhone X

6. Activate Siri By Pushing Down Side Button

Press and hold the side button on the right Manual button for a few seconds until you notice that the device is restarted and the Apple logo that appears when the power is turned on.

8. Record 4K Videos At 60 fps
By default, iPhone X is set to record 4K video at 30 fps. However, you can set it to record at 60 fps to make sure higher and smoother resolution. This setting can be found in Settings app > Camera > Record Video.

9. Turn ‘Tap To Wake’ On Or Off
By default, there is a ” Tap To Wake” feature on the iPhone X. This means the lock screen will appear when you tap the screen. If you do not want to enable this feature, you can go to the Settings app > General > Accessibility > Toggle off “Tap To Wake” to turn off this feature.

10. Tap On ‘Done’ After Moving Around Or Deleting Apps
On other iPhone, you usually have to press an icon until it swings or removes the application from the home screen. Then click the Home button to close the application icon edit mode. On iPhone X, you also have to press the application icon to move or delete them. But Apple added a “Done” button in edit mode at the top right corner of the iPhone X screen so you can move or delete the application.

11. Home Indicator Opens The App Switcher
Without the physical home button, Apple added the Home indicator at the bottom of the screen. The Home light is used to unlock the device and activate the application switcher. To launch the application switcher, you must drag your open application from the home page indicator to the right of the screen with your finger. Then you will see all the open applications arranged together for easier switching.

12. Swipe The Bottom Edge To Return Home
The Home flag line is also used to return to the main screen when the application is opened. Swiping from the bottom edge of the home screen will take you back to the first page – this will come in handy if you have multiple application icon pages.

13. Control Apps That Use Face ID For Authentication
You can customize which apps use Face ID for authentication through going to the Settings app> Face ID & Passcode> (Enter Passcode)> Other Apps.

To take full advantage of the larger 5.8-inch screen on the iPhone X, you can zoom in on the YouTube app. To zoom in and out videos, just use pinch-to-zoom gesture while in full-screen landscape mode. When zoomed in, the YouTube video shows ” Zoomed to fill” at the top. When you zoom out, it says ” Original.”

17. Swipe Left Or Right To Switch Between Recent Apps
Simply swipe left or right on the Home indicator line.

18. Additional Face ID Controls

This may prevent someone from unlocking the device when pointing to your device while you are asleep. In addition, you can turn on or off “Attention Aware Features” that essentially control whether the alarm will disappear and the screen will dim once you pick up iPhone X and watch it after waking up.

The Interesting, Innovating Apple Watch Series 3

Apple Watch Lovers, Read Along

Conspiracies about the new Apple Watch all led to be true. Gone are the days of panicking whenever you leave your phone at home. The new Apple Watch Series 3 now allows LTE connectivity so for phone-forgetters or phone-haters, you can now find comfort in disconnecting from your phone for a while. 

We’ve all been in a situation where we felt like we just didn’t want to carry our phones, want to leave it to charge when we grocery shop, or just wanting to feel free from our technological ties. Well, continue reading to learn about the new Apple watch and how it can make this completely possible.

For $399 plus $10 per month (US), you can now connect LTE to your Apple watch and receive data without having your phone with you. Although this only would work in your home country (don’t forget your phone on vacations!), this is an ideal application for people who prefer to occasionally leave their phones home. 

The Apple Watch 3rd series can also be purchased without LTE connectivity (GPS still included) incase this isn’t your forte, and is purchased at a lower price of $329. 

Features

With a similar design, the new features lie in the technology of the watch. Aside from LTE connectivity, this watch runs even faster than the 2nd series, and can track when you are moving up or down stairs. That is a pretty big upgrade from previous generations. Along with LTE, it comes with a red dot, perhaps for the LTE connectivity.

As far as the battery is concerned, enjoy about 1- hour of talk-time, but 18-hour of battery life with a charge. It is estimated you could workout for 10 hours and roughly 4-5 hours of GPS use. I am unsure of who would workout for 10 hours but hey, I’m not here to judge! You can stream music to this new watch, so you can conveniently workout with your watch! Ah, that’s there amazing point. There is a 4% increase in battery life, which we all love and appreciate.

New software for the Apple watch makes it the fastest watch yet. The Apple Watch Series 2 was fast, but the 3rd series is even faster. The 2nd series is no longer sold in stores but there are options to choose from with the Series 3.

Similar to luxurious watches, the Apple Watch Series 3 is made of anodized aluminum  (Apple Watch Sport), stainless steel (Apple Watch), and 18-karat gold (Apple Watch Edition). 

Availability

US, UK, China, Canada, France, Japan, and HongKong may purchase this watch!

From the Apple website: “Apple Watch Series 3 now comes in a gorgeous new gold aluminum, along with silver or space black stainless steel cases, which all pair with a stunning assortment of new band colors and styles. The Woven Nylon is updated with a new pattern and the incredibly lightweight Sport Loop effortlessly adjusts to fit wrists with unparalleled comfort. Apple Watch Edition expands to include a beautiful dark gray ceramic case that pairs with a new two-toned Sport Band.”

That’s Not All!

Enjoy an amazing workout or lifestyle without always having to lug your phone around, in fact the apple watch can track your heart and how efficient your workout was.

What’s New: iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X

Avid buyers of Apple products we’re excited for the information released about 2017’s new iPhone. The biggest surprise was, being this was the 10th anniversary of iPhone generations, Apple created an “iPhone X,” along with iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. iPhone 8 and 8 plus is already available for as low at $699. 

The iPhone 8 continues the 7 series features including the new jack for headphone and the jack adapter. The overall design is still the same as previous generations, including the touch ID home button and the bezel surrounding the frame..

 What’s new?

is the entirely glass body enclosed in an aluminum frame, and the glass is said to be most durable glass yet as it’s placed in an aluminum structure and reinforced steel that’s water and dust resistant. The speakers of the iPhone 8 is about 25 % louder than previous generations including the 7, with a deeper bass. 

The iPhone 8 display is about 1 inch smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus, both equipped with True Tone Support, the feature that allows adaptation to color temperature and intensity to ambient light. Basically, say you step outside your dark room to a brightly lit room, the iPhone 8 and 8 plus will adapt the screen to an intensity better adjusted for your eyes. It’s like a paper-viewing experience, as described. 3D touch is the newest feature, and there are wide varieties of color to be chosen. 

There is a new charging feature, a Qi-based inductive wireless charging, allowing charging to take place when the phones are placed atop this charging station. Very high-tech for modern day technology, but certainly an interesting one at best.

 

The new six-core Bionic chip apparently makes this the smartest and fastest iPhone yet. It makes the experience of gaming and using this iPhone closer to reality. This iPhone is fastest, smartest, and even a “faster learner” than all iPhones.

The new camera is sharpest in quality, while the A11 brings forth better low-light quality images, faster autofocus, new pixel-processing technologies, and even catches less “noise” in images captured. These are only some of the camera qualities the iPhone 8 and 8 plus has to offer!

True Tone is available on each phone, which is easily described as a lighting detector that will automatically alter the lighting on your phone to best suit your eyes and to meet a standard of a natural viewing experience. 

How To Choose? Deciding to go with an iPhone 8 or 8 plus? Pick from Silver, Space Grey, or a Rosie-gold. 

 

And finally- the iPhone X

The moment we’ve all been waiting for. The 10th generation of iPhone called for an entirely new experience, which is where the iPhone X came from. This smartphone is an “all-display” featured phone, designed unlike the iPhone as we know it. It’s 5.8 inches of screen is wrapped into a stainless steel band and a durable all-glass body (like the iPhone 8 and 8 plus, without the bezels). 

This super-retina technology utilizes a life-life experience of color on this phone also features deep black and million-to-one contrast, including the highest resolution and pixel density ever in iPhone history. This amazing technological advancement also includes HDR, wide color, 3D Touch, and True Tone. 

Rather than a home button, users swipe to open or access “home.” You can “tap to wake” meaning access your notifications, a side button for Siri, and swiping down opens your control center.

iPhone X also allows for fastest, multiple use performance thanks to the ALL Bionic chip (better than A10), including faster higher-

efficiency cores, multi-thread work, GPU (image processor, A11 motion coprocessor, and the Secure Enclave for Face ID. What’s more is this battery lasts approximately two hours longer than iPhone 7. 

Facial Identification

Face recognition is the newest and probably most interesting part of iPhone X. Instead of typing in a password, the phone recognizes your face by creating a 3D image with the front-face camera. This feature also allows you to make purchases and access personal apps. This can read through hats, makeup, beards, and more, but will only open if you’re actually looking at the screen. It doesn’t unlock if you’re looking away or if it’s looking at a photograph or other replicas. In other words, the iPhone X is quite aware of who is and isn’t its owner.

 

Fun Features

Every smartphone user loves Emoticons, but now there are Animoji for the iPhone X. This 3D emoji mimics your facial expression, literally translating your facial expressions into a Animoji for iMessage!

Portrait lighting creates the best lighting ever whether it’s in selfie mode or regular camera mode! The back camera also includes optical image stabilization, better augmented reality experience, and a TrueDepth camera.

The iPhone X starts at $999 and comes either with 64 or 256GB of storage. Although this is not yet available, it will be sold by the end of October! You can purchase this phone in Silver or Space Gray. 

Not In Your Budget?

Not many of us have this money lying around, but if you trade in your old iPhone 6 or iPhone 7 to SellMyMac, it will give you some extra cash to put toward your new iPhone 8, 8 plus, or X! If you have an iMac, iPad, or MacBook Pro, sell it to SellMyMac for faster access to your new iPhone!
