or 64 bits among us
We are faced with a choice between 64- or 32-bit versions of programs, downloading them from the Internet. Windows also separates these programs into different Program Files folders as follows:
On 64-bit Windows, the Program Files folder is responsible for 64-bit programs, while the Program Files (x86) folder contains 32-bit applications.
But why are 32-bit programs in the “x86” folder? The fact is that the model numbers of Intel processors at the end of the last century ended with the number 86. All these processors, of course, had exactly the 32-bit architecture (since 1985).
The main difference between a 64-bit system and a 32-bit system is that the latter cannot read more than 4 GB of RAM.
This applies not only to the main RAM, but also to the one installed in the computer’s video cards. It is important to be aware of these differences because many modern computers that can support modern games at an acceptable level of graphics, or play videos in 1080p and 4K, usually have at least 8 GB of RAM, not including a video card.
Of course, such computers are already pre-installed with a 64-bit OS that also supports 32-bit programs. However, it never hurts to make sure your device is up to date. In Windows it is easy to do this by selecting the “System” menu and the “About system” section in the settings. The “System Type” column should say the following:
Most likely the same is written in your Windows properties, since the transition to 64-bit architecture began more than 10 years ago
In the case of Mac computers, it is even easier to know which system you are dealing with. Just make sure your device was manufactured in 2008 or later. Most likely, this criterion is exactly met.
bits and 64 bits. what’s the difference?
At least once each of us using a computer came across such a concept as a “64-bit” system or program. What is the difference between 64 bits and 32 bits, except for the number, and why it is important for some to know this. Digitark will tell about it!
Almost five years have passed since Apple introduced the iPhone 5S smartphone. The device was the first phone from the company with a fingerprint sensor. During the presentation, Tim Cook made an Accent for another technical innovation of the new iPhone, embedded in his Apple A7 processor. This mobile chip became the first processor in its class with built-in 64-bit expansion.
Obviously, for many viewers of the presentation around the world who are not interested in such subtleties of the iPhone hardware, 64-bit architecture did not arouse much interest, since rarely anyone needs to know. why is 64-bit better than 32-bit? This, however, is not only about Apple products. Almost all personal computers have been using the same technology for a long time.
Destiny 32 bit
For some, this may seem like good news. the browser will not encroach on the resource allocated for other programs. However, it should be borne in mind that the various HTML5 players that are loaded by default on and YouTube consume a huge amount of memory, which, if it is insufficient, leads to instability of the application.
Apple is one of the first to bury the 32-bit architecture, setting the industry trend, as it once happened with the abandonment of Flash in favor of HTML5. Many iPhone users who have updated their devices to iOS 11 may find that some programs no longer start, and the error is presented as “the developer did not update their application”.
This is how Apple is struggling with legacy technology on its devices. 32-bit apps were banned from publishing in the App Store back in 2015. Mac programs and applications are next, as Apple has promised that their macOS High Sierra will be the last OS to support 32-bit programs. On January 1 of this year, the Mac App Store also banned the publication of new applications with the old architecture, and from June it will not be possible to update existing ones.
Apple reminds macOS High Sierra to end support for 32-bit applications
On the part of Microsoft in this regard, there is still silence. The Windows line is famous among many computer enthusiasts for its conservatism (for example, support for Windows XP released in 2001 until 2014). Nevertheless, there is reason to believe that Microsoft is also thinking about how to make 32-bit architecture history. From year to year, developers are dropping support for outdated technology, which may allow the company to release the next version of Windows completely 64-bit.
If someone doesn’t like this, there is always the opportunity to stay on Windows 10 until the end of the support cycle. It’s no secret that Windows users are very slow to adapt to new versions (for example, to this day, 51% of the total number of Windows systems installed on computers belongs to Windows 7 released in 2009).
32-bit applications are a technology of the past. Its end is inevitable. It’s a matter of time. how soon the consumer and the developer will abandon it forever. This will not greatly affect the average computer user, but professionals specializing in computers should follow the development of events.
How the iPhone X differs from XR: table
To begin with, it’s worth a quick comparison of the key characteristics of the reviewed smartphones. The main differences between iPhones X and XR are reflected in the table below:
|iPhone Model X||iPhone XR models|
|Dimensions and weight||143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm 174 grams||150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm 194 grams|
|Screen||OLED, 5.8 “, 2436 x 1125||IPS, 6.1 “, 1792 x 828|
|Chipset||Apple a11||Apple a12|
|Memory||3 GB of RAM 64 or 256 GB of permanent||3 GB of RAM 64, 128 or 256 GB of permanent|
|Autonomy||Battery 2700 mAh Fast charging 15W Wireless charging||Battery 2900mAh Fast Charging 15W Wireless Charging|
|Cameras||Main 12 Mp Telephoto 12 Mp Front 7 Mp||Main 12 MpFront 7 Mp|
|Media||Stereo speakers: No 3.5mm jack||Stereo speakers: No 3.5mm jack|
|Connection||2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, BT 5.0, NFC1 SIM card||2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, BT 5.0, NFC2 SIM cards (one eSIM)|
The differences between the iPhone X and XR relate to the number and size of cameras that smartphones are equipped with. The “dozens” have two 12-megapixel modules on the back. The first iPhone is equipped with a 1/3 ″ sensor and conventional wide-angle optics. The second is a 1/4 ″ and a 2x zoom telephoto zoom lens. The XR has one main camera, also 12 megapixels, but its size is larger, 1 / 2.55 ″. Because of this, the “simplified” iPhone in the dark is able to capture more light at the same shutter speed. But such an improvement will come at the price of a simplified portrait mode. The rear cameras of both smartphones support optical image stabilization, which helps with video and long exposure photography.
The front cameras of the reviewed iPhones are identical, they are equipped with 7 megapixel matrices. Nearby are 3D sensors for face scanning Face ID. They are also used for portraits with the front lens.
In terms of video, the two iPhones have parity: both write in 4K @ 60 FPS or Full HD @ 240 FPS on the rear camera, and Full HD @ 60 FPS on the front. The differences are in the optical zoom, which the XR lacks. But a newer smartphone writes a video soundtrack in stereo, which its predecessor cannot (it has mono). The XR is better than the iPhone X in this regard.
iPhone X vs XR
Released in 2017, the iPhone X was the company’s first smartphone in several years to undergo significant changes compared to its predecessors. It received a new design, got support for fast and wireless charging, lost a fingerprint scanner, and received a Face ID face scanner in return. The tenth iPhone is not cheap (from 75 thousand rubles), and a year later Apple released a more affordable and simplified model XR. Comparison of these already middle-aged, but still relevant smartphones will show the differences between them, the pros and cons of each iPhone model.
The multimedia part of both iPhones is implemented at a high level. Both have loud stereo speakers (bottom and top), but lack the 3.5mm jack for audio output. For its wireless transmission, Bluetooth 5.0 is provided. You can also use a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter to connect any wired headphones or speakers.
Both iPhones are equipped with non-removable lithium-ion batteries, with only slightly different capacities: the X has a 2,700mAh battery, while the XR has a 2,900mAh battery. This, as well as the difference in screen resolutions, is responsible for the differences in performance. iPhone X is capable of working up to 9.5 hours of surfing the web and 12 hours of watching videos. XR has similar indicators reaching 13 and 15 hours, respectively.
The tenth iPhone became the first smartphone from the company to receive fast charging. Its power reaches 15 W, but the corresponding power supply must be purchased separately. The same goes for the second device. Both iPhones also have inductive coils for wireless charging.
iPhone XR vs iPhone X
Design and screens
Smartphones are made in the same design. Both iPhones have glass panels on the front and back, only the frame is different in materials. At the “dozen” it is made of stainless steel, while the XR is made of aluminum. There is also a difference in size due to the use of different displays. The “simplified” model has a larger screen and is built on an IPS matrix. Because of this, the thickness of the smartphone bezels is different: the X has a thinner bezel than the “successor”. But the “bangs” of the devices are about the same.
The newer model has a wider range of colors than the X: the iPhone can be black, red, yellow, blue, coral and white. The older model has only dark gray and silver paintwork. This is a minus for lovers of bright design.
The dimensions of smartphones differ: the iPhone X is more compact and lighter. Its thickness is also less, which is due to the use of an OLED matrix. The iPhone X’s display is smaller (5.8 ″ versus 6.1 ″), but its resolution is higher (2436 x 1125 versus 1792 x 828), which makes the picture clearer and smoother. The use of the OLED panel in the older iPhone provides higher brightness and contrast values, so the top ten is clearly better in the part of the screen.
Chipset and memory
Since the iPhone XR came out later, it received the next generation chipset, the Apple A12. It is about 25% more powerful, which has a positive impact on the performance of the device. The lower resolution of the display has also contributed, so in heavy applications such as games, the XR runs a little faster. At the same time, it discharges the battery more slowly due to a thinner technical process and less load on the GPU.
The sizes of RAM in smartphones are identical, 3 GB each. The drives are similar too, but the iPhone X doesn’t have a 128GB version (64 and 256 only), while the XR does. Both models use a high-speed NVME drive, providing high-speed downloads of any data.
The design of the iPhone XR is not much different from the iPhone X, but rather, even completely adopted it. Both sides of the smartphone are covered with glass, while the side edges are made of aluminum. This is where the main difference between the XR and X smartphone lies; in the latter, the frame is made of steel and is more resistant to various types of physical damage in the form of scratches and abrasions. If you take a comparison of these two iPhones, you will notice many of these points, which causes the XR to cost less than the X.
But in no case should you think that aluminum will wear out quickly, and the appearance of the iPhone will lose its attractiveness, because the younger models of these smartphones had the same aluminum frame, and there were no complaints about the rapid wear of the edges.
As for the dimensions of the new iPhone XR, they are slightly larger than those of the iPhone X. All thanks to the almost frameless and elongated display.
The display of this model is large and covers almost the entire 6.1-inch front panel. Side frames, as well as their lower part, are practically absent, and there are no home buttons at all. There is a rather large cutout at the top of the display, on which the speaker and sensors with the camera are located. In addition, instead of Touch ID, located in the home button, Face ID was added, the sensors of which are located at the top of the display and are responsible for the revolutionary face recognition technology.
The location of the function buttons and ports remains standard for Apple smartphones. The top edge of the smartphone is empty, while on the bottom you can find a Lightning port and symmetrical speaker grilles. On the left side there are volume control buttons and a silent mode switch. On the opposite side, there is a lock and power button with a tray for a SIM card.
The bottom line is, we have an iPhone with an increased size compared to the iPhone X and a wide variety of colors, which is good news. In addition to the standard black and white, bright yellow, blue, coral and red colors appeared in the smartphone line.
IPhone XR storage
We are immediately seeing 3 versions of the smartphone with 64, 128 and 256 GB of memory on board. The arrival of the 128GB version should do well for end-user price flexibility in the market.
The case is completely sealed and protected from dust and water ingress to the IP67 standard. With dust, everything is clear, but with moisture, it’s a little different. According to the manufacturer, the smartphone can be kept under water at a depth of up to a meter for as much as 30 minutes, but I would not check it and just limit myself to protection from rain and humid air.
Controversy over the name of the new smartphone lasted for a long time, but even Apple was in no hurry to reveal this secret. Of all the three models of 2018, the 6.1-inch smartphone was not designated in any way. Subsequently, the name iPhone 9 stuck with this device, and a couple of weeks before the presentation, it was called the iPhone XC.
Apple, in turn, decided to surprise its users with a non-typical name with the prefix XR, which did not really fit into the overall picture of the standard iPhone names. And besides, she insisted that the name be read like “ten ar”, but the generally accepted name is always chosen by the society, behind which the last word.
At the time of the release of the iPhone XR, it received the most advanced processor of its kind. This small, high-performance module is made using a 7-nanometer process technology and is marked A12.
Surprisingly, the new processor increased the performance of the iPhone XR by 70% in some tests compared to the iPhone X. Performance has increased dramatically in a variety of scenarios, from launching applications to browsing.
Although this model also received only 3 GB of RAM, this is quite enough for it to work stably with many applications at once and work with the camera. True, here the XS and XS Max models bypass it somewhat in terms of RAM.
An interesting new smartphone from Apple went on sale on October 26, 2018 with the equally catchy name iPhone XR. The smartphone is equipped with a 6.1-inch LCD Liquid Retina display, an excellent system on the A12 processor, Face ID facial recognition, an improved single camera, wireless charging support and 3 GB of RAM.
Here we come to the main advantages of the iPhone XR model. Its almost bezel-less display occupies 82% of the entire front surface and has an aspect ratio of 18: 9. The resolution of such a screen became 1792 × 828 pixels, and the density of these pixels per inch is 326 ppi. Let me remind you that the display diagonal is as much as 6.1 inches and the technology of manufacturing Liquid Retina.
Unfortunately, this model did not use an OLED display, as in the X, XS and XS Max models, but a liquid crystal display. This is due to a decrease in the cost of the device due to lower costs for the production of such screens.
Despite the cheaper performance of the built-in screen, it still supports Apple’s True Tone technology. So users have access to a convenient way to automatically adjust the screen glow temperature for maximum comfort of use in any light.
An interesting feature of the XR model is the ability to unlock with a touch. Many were convinced that this function was only possible with OLED displays, but Apple managed to implement everything here.
Big comparison of iPhone 13 Pro Max to iPhone 12 Pro Max
Let’s start with the display. If you put two smartphones next to each other, you can easily determine which one is. The iPhone 13 Pro Max has less bangs than its predecessor. This means that there is more free space for displaying content on the smartphone. This is noticeable, for example, in game shooters like PUBG Mobile, where it is important to “see” the enemy as quickly as possible.
Another major innovation in the iPhone 13 Pro Max is support for display frequencies up to 120Hz. in the previous model, it was 60 Hz. The higher the frequency, the faster and smoother the animation on the screen. Gamers prefer the kind of displays where the refresh rate is higher, and in this regard, the iPhone 13 Pro Max will definitely not disappoint them. The screen resolution is the same in both cases. 2778 x 1284 pixels, 1200 nits brightness. the picture will be clearly visible even in the brightest sunlight.
In terms of performance, the iPhone 13 Pro Max beats its predecessor. this is also confirmed by synthetic tests. A15 Bionic in the new smartphone is gaining 1732 points in single-core testing and 4803 points. in multicore. The A14 Bionic in the iPhone 12 Pro Max scores 1590 points on a single core and 4154 points in multi-core testing. A powerful increase happened in terms of graphics, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is gaining 14,266 points, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is only 9310.
To make these numbers better understood, the iPhone X launched in 2017 only scored 3,901 points. The current flagships on Android at the moment cannot get close to the test results even to the iPhone 12 Pro Max, let alone the 13 Pro Max. In addition, if previously the maximum storage capacity of the iPhone was limited to 512 GB, now it is 1 TB.
But the main difference from the previous generation of “procs”. these are updated cameras. I had to specifically take the same pictures on both devices so that we could talk more in detail about why the iPhone 13 Pro Max shoots better than its predecessor.
Firstly, the main camera has been greatly updated. Thanks to the increased aperture value from f / 1.6 to f / 1.5 and larger pixels. 1.9 microns versus 1.7 microns. iPhone 13 Pro Max has a camera that “captures” a lot more light compared to both the iPhone 12 Pro Max and Android flagships.
This is especially noticeable in low light. For example, if you look at the two photos in the park, the rear light on the iPhone 13 Pro Max came out sharper than its predecessor. In addition, if you focus on the leaves lying on the ground, you can see that they are much more detailed. And a shot of the stadium behind the trees shows the iPhone 13 Pro Max can handle shadows even in challenging night shots.
By the way, this smartphone switches to night mode much less often. where its predecessor is already switching to “night”, the novelty keeps very vigorously and suggests that there is enough light.
Another innovation that absolutely all photographers will appreciate. this is a macro shot. The ultra-wide-angle camera of the iPhone 13 Pro Max has learned to take beautiful pictures of small objects as close to them as possible. For example, when the user brings the device to an autumn leaf, spider or ant, the camera automatically switches to macro mode. As practice has shown, to activate this mode, the object must be at a distance of about 10 cm. After that, you can further bring the device closer to the subject. And again, it’s hard not to notice that the macro photography of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is much better than competitors from the Android world.
The telephoto lens has also been significantly updated. There is good news for those who like to shoot portraits in the dark with light coming from the window. The iPhone 13 Pro Max does this better than its predecessor. This is especially noticeable when examining photographs in detail. When viewed in detail on a widescreen monitor, the mole near the eyes turned out to be much clearer on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The device produces gorgeous pictures with 3x optical zoom. While other manufacturers are playing a game called “we have 100x zoom”, Apple is not chasing numbers, relying on picture quality. All photos with optical zoom are very clear. By the way, the iPhone 12 Pro Max had 2.5x zoom.
The “Cinema Effect” mode, which has become a feature of the new model, is worthy of special mention. This is a new iPhone mode that uses software to blur the background when shooting portrait videos. A similar effect is applied in films, when the camera is aimed directly at the main character, and the background is blurred. The “Movie Effect” works like this: algorithms automatically focus on the largest face visible in the frame. Interestingly, the option works with both main and selfie cameras, for which Apple is a separate plus. lovers to shoot videos about themselves loved ones will be happy. Currently in the “Cinema Effect” mode, you can shoot video with a resolution of Full HD 30 frames per second.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max did a good job on battery life as well. For all the time that the device is being tested, it was possible to discharge it to a maximum of 20% during the day. Battery capacity in iPhone 13 Pro Max. 4352 mAh, which is more than the iPhone 12 Pro Max (3687 mAh). At the same time, both smartphones can be charged by 50% on average in half an hour.
Who do you recommend the iPhone 13 Pro Max,? Firstly, it will appeal to professionals who are engaged in photography and video shooting. They will receive a very powerful and compact device that is not inferior in capabilities to most digital cameras and is a full-fledged video studio. Well, secondly, the new device will certainly be taken by technology lovers who need to have all the coolest technologies of the mobile world on their smartphones.
All the contents of the box should lie nicely and evenly in their grooves. The wires are held together with a transparent film, the ends of which are connected evenly. What is included in the iPhone X package: the phone itself, Lightning adapter, branded EarPods wireless headphones, USB adapter for power, cable, device passport.
IPhone X appearance
After examining the box, examine the phone. Suddenly it turns out that the box is from the original, and inside is a fake. Scammers will stop at nothing to get their profit.
In very primitive copies of the iPhone X, you can find an antenna for watching TV or USB charging. Also, the phone will be able to put a second SIM card or memory card. All this is not typical for the original iPhone in principle. We are generally silent about the removable back cover. In the original, it is screwed on with screws.
If these details are not found in the sample you are considering, then check a couple more points:
- whether there is a protective film on the screen of the device. If the answer is yes. we give the fake to the seller.
- look at the back cover of the device. In fakes, it can be empty, without inscriptions. The original cover has a branded “apple”, as well as a serial number and IMEI.
How to distinguish an original iPhone X from a copy
The iPhone X has been around for years. And until now serious passions are boiling around him. Although the screen without borders is not a novelty for users, manufacturers have endowed their brainchild with unique chips. Therefore, it cannot be said that the creators of the iPhone X are repeating their South Korean competitors.
Among the innovations, the Face ID function can be noted. the phone scans and recognizes the face of its owner, happily greeting him with its bright color screen. In addition to the new design of the case, the phone was equipped with an improved camera of its kind and emoji were revived.
Since the smartphone screen has no boundaries, the front side is made entirely of glass. Or almost completely.
During the time that the iPhone X has been on sale, Chinese craftsmen have managed to study its appearance inside and out. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to distinguish the last copies from the original in appearance. But still there are some tricks to calculate the fake.
If you cannot find fault with the appearance of the device, then check its internal component. Just turn on your smartphone and browse the menu.
- As you turn on your device, notice how it greets you. If it’s fake, the Android logo may appear instead of the Apple logo.
Find the operating system information in the setup menu. basic. about your device. It should be labeled iOS 11. Other letters and numbers indicate a different operating system. The serial number of the device can also be found there. We compare it with the one on the box. Then we punch on the Internet on the official website. If the site provides information about the iPhone, then everything is fine. An error message is a reason to doubt the originality of the device.
Although the iPhone X’s screen is completely glass, the manufacturers have left a small black niche on it at the top. This camera area is not part of the screen. Copymakers do not yet have the ability to create such screens on their creations. Therefore, on a rectangular screen, using the program, they simply paint this area with black. Turning on the device immediately shows a black rectangular frame. That is, the border fake screen still has.
Remember, too, that Original iPhones use premium materials. Therefore, they cannot be very cheap. Low price. a reason to doubt the quality of the device offered to you.
If you don’t have that kind of money on the iPhone X, then our tips will definitely come in handy at the time of purchase.
How the iPhone X differs from the XR
As a rule, differences between models in the same product line are less obvious than in smartphones of different generations. But still, a comparison of the iPhone X and XR will show what the real differences are, which smartphone is preferable in a particular situation, which is better for a particular user.
The moment of presentation and appearance in mass sales from Apple is always strictly fixed. In the case of the anniversary version X, ten, 10 (everyone chooses a convenient option). this is the fall of 2017, XR was introduced a year later, in 2018. That is, the developers actually had a year for revision, which they successfully used.
Segmentation and cost. To start comparing iPhone X and iPhone XR is that in fact they belong to different classes: X. to the flagships, XR. to the middle segment, although, of course, such a classification with respect to Apple smartphones is very conditional. It is significant that at the moment, if we compare the iPhone X and Xp at a price, then the flagship of 2017 is more expensive than a younger gadget.
Design is the first thing you pay attention to when choosing a new product to buy. Externally, the iPhone 10 and iPhone XR are very similar, apart from the size. But the significant advantages of XR are the color variety of the cases, as many as 6 options. In defiance of the standard silver and almost black version, dozens of XR opposes bright and juicy shades, including yellow, blue, coral, red, which is not typical for Apple. In addition, the rear glass is different. more durable and reliable.
iPhone X vs iPhone XR. Which Should You Choose?
The display specs add to the difference between the iPhone X and XR. If diagonally the advantages are on the XR side (5.8ʺ versus 6.1ʺ), then in terms of technology and, accordingly, the image quality is preferable on the side of the tenth model (Super Retina HD is objectively better than Liquid Retina HD). iPhone X wins in screen resolution, number of pixels, contrast and other screen characteristics, this fact is stated by all users.
The camera’s capabilities are higher in technical specifications than X in digital and optical zoom. The actual comparison between the cameras of the iPhone X and X Er shows almost the same high image quality, excellent results in both cases. Possible technical imperfections on XR are eliminated due to the large capabilities of artificial intelligence.
The filling of smartphones is primarily distinguished by the generation of the processor. A11 and A12, respectively, XR is more powerful, but in practice this difference is almost imperceptible. The clear advantage of XR is better battery life (up 2 hours). Such characteristics are achieved due to the introduction of energy-efficient operation of the processor, display, and other modules.
Based on the results of the comparison, we can summarize: iPhone X wins in terms of size, picture quality of the display, digital zoom; XR advantages. body color solutions, screen diagonal, processor frequency, battery life, cost. Decide which phone is preferable for you, make yourself.
Save on what’s important. a budget screen with a low resolution
The iPhone XR screen is built in a similar way to the iPhone X: there is a notch at the top. This is a claim that the manufacturer wants to make products similar to each other.
The screen resolution in the flagship does not even reach FullHD. It is difficult to find a smartphone in this price range, which also saved on display resolution. This choice of the manufacturer is explained by the fact that this way you can save battery power. The screen quality is worse than in older models or competing products. If the question is: “Which screen is better than X or XR?”, Then you should choose the anniversary version.
When purchasing a flagship, a person wants to get the best, but this is not about the iPhone XR. The smartphone is suitable for everyday use, because at the level of previous gadgets it is typically bright, but it is difficult to attribute it to the level of flagship products.
Where is the best camera iPhone X or iPhone XR?
According to the characteristics, the flagship camera is simpler. Unlike the iPhone X, where software and a second camera are responsible for portrait mode, only software helps in this gadget. There are fewer modes for shooting portraits. Another disadvantage is that the iPhone XR recognizes only people when shooting portraits, while on the iPhone X you can photograph any object. The XR’s camera quality is good though. Thus, if you are interested in zoom. choose X, and if detail and wide angle. XR.
The front camera in the two models is the same. 7 megapixels. The advantage of the flagship is the improved audio recording quality. iPhone XR offers stereo mode, not mono, as in the previous version.
Dimensions and design
Appearance is what makes X different from XR. The latter is larger in size. This difference can be either a plus or a minus, depending on the buyer’s preference. The bezel around the screen is wider in the flagship. This is due to the presence of a different type of matrix.
The new model features a variety of designs. The smartphone is available in 6 vibrant colors. Model X is only available in white and black.
iPhone X and iPhone XR what to choose?
The usual case of stainless steel in the case of the flagship was replaced with aluminum. There are no complaints here, because this is how Apple saved on the processor cooling system, leaving this function to the case. XR’s strength is lower. when dropped, aluminum protects the parts of the smartphone, and the load falls on the glass of the back panel and the screen.
The advantages of the flagship include fast work and a larger battery capacity. Also, the developers have improved the speed of Face ID unlocking.
The above aspects explain why the iPhone XR is cheaper than the X. When wondering why the iPhone X is better than the XR, it is worth remembering that the latter is like a flagship, but simpler. You can find out how much the iPhone X and XR costs on the website.
Wondering what is the difference between the iPhone X and XR, as you choose a model to buy or just keep track of all the changes in the lineup? We hope this article will help you understand this issue and make an informed choice for a purchase, especially since in our service in Nizhny Novgorod you will find a full range of models at very affordable prices.

IPhone 11 vs iPhone XR Comparison
iPhone 11 and iPhone XR.
Almost everything has been said about the new iPhone 11 in recent days. A review of the phone will appear on our website soon, but for now, here’s a comparison between the iPhone 11 and the iPhone XR. I walked around with these phones, and now I’ll tell you why the new one is better than the old one.
How the iPhone 11 looks different from the iPhone XR?
You can distinguish the iPhone 11 from the iPhone XR by the dual camera and new body colors. Instead of coral, bright yellow and blue colors, lilac, pale yellow and mint green appeared. Black, white and red remained unchanged.
I like the old color palette more than the new one, but this is all very subjective.
The dimensions of the cases and the weight have not changed at all: the same aluminum frame and glass on the back. durable glass is being used this year, according to Apple. I did not suit the crash test and did not test the phone for strength, so I can only trust the company. From myself, I can say that the screen in the iPhone 11 scratches at exactly the same speed as in the iPhone XR. If you are worried about the safety of your phone, it is better to stick on a protective glass.
What’s up with the camera?
While the iPhone XR had one camera, the iPhone 11 has two. An additional ultra-wide-angle module has appeared, this is a plus, but it does not work with the new night mode. this is a minus. And without autofocus. this is the second minus. Therefore, for spectacular photos in the dark, you need to use the main camera, and not a new additional one.
The quality of daytime shots for this module is average. I personally do not really like it, but for Instagram it will do just fine.
Now let’s compare the cameras. First, turn off Smart HDR. The colors are very much the same, but what about the details?

Let’s increase. IPhone 11 has richer greens and comparable details.

And if you turn on Smart HDR? IPhone 11 has more saturated colors: clearly visible in blue and green.

I really liked the new night mode, its essence is that the phone takes a series of pictures and stitches them into one frame. It’s a shame the iPhone XR isn’t trained to do this. Meanwhile, the difference compared to the iPhone 11 is very noticeable. Here is a photo in low light. Here, the victory of the new phone over the old one is not discussed: the difference is clearly visible in small details.

The sun went down an hour ago, it’s not night yet, but the lighting is bad.

Let’s increase. Here it is, the difference: if we see a large bright spot on the iPhone XR, then on the iPhone 11 it turns into a map of the area.
The front camera in the iPhone XR is 7 megapixels, and in the iPhone 11 is already as much as 12 megapixels and a wide-angle module. Taking pictures of yourself on the iPhone 11 is much more interesting: in the frame, not only the head, but also the sights.

If desired, you can switch to portrait mode. Phones are still pretty rough around the head, and I didn’t see much of an advantage with the iPhone 11 over the iPhone XR.

IPhone 11 also shoots in portrait mode, blurring the background, inanimate objects and animals. the iPhone XR does not have this option, the camera only reacts to people.
What’s with the screen?
Nothing has changed at all. The display in the iPhone 11 is exactly the same as in the iPhone XR.
Comparison of iPhone X and iPhone XR: the main differences
In the fall of 2018, the traditional presentation of new Apple products took place. During which, three new smartphones and a new smart watch were presented at once. One of the most interesting novelties of this presentation was the budget iPhone XR. In this article, you can see the comparison between iPhone X and iPhone XR, as well as find out how the two phones differ.
If you compare the screens of the iPhone X and iPhone XR, then they are completely different. The main difference is the screen production technology. The iPhone X uses OLED, while the iPhone XR uses an IPS display. Due to the difference in technology, the data displays of the two types look slightly different. OLED has deep blacks as well as brighter, more saturated and slightly acidic colors. IPS. on the contrary, it differs in natural color reproduction, but its black color looks more like a dark gray.
In addition, the OLED display is more economical on battery power, has a minimum response time and a 180-degree viewing angle. But, at the same time, OLED burns out over time and is not so safe for the eyes. In general, both OLED and IPS displays have both advantages and disadvantages. Therefore, it cannot be said that OLED is definitely better than IPS. The choice between these two display technologies is more a matter of taste.
It should also be noted that there are differences in the size and resolution of the screens. The iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch display with a 1792 × 828 resolution, while the iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen with a 2436 × 1125 resolution. As you can see, the iPhone XR has a noticeably lower resolution with a larger screen. But, this is not a very serious drawback. The XR has a pixel density of 326 ppi, which matches the pixel density of the iPhone 8.
But, the iPhone XR’s screen also has some significant simplifications. For example, in this smartphone, Apple decided to abandon the use of 3D Touch technology. Instead, it now uses the Haptic touch, which migrated here from the MacBook Pro trackpad.
Differences in design
There are a number of notable design differences between the iPhone X and the iPhone XR, but these are largely determined by changes in specifications. For example, the larger screen makes the iPhone XR slightly larger than the iPhone X, and the lack of a second camera, the back of the device looks similar to the iPhone 8.
The rest of the design is quite similar. The iPhone XR has rounded edges, a metal bezel on the sides, and minimal bezels around the display. In both devices, the screen occupies almost the entire front panel. Like the iPhone X, there is a small notch at the top of the iPhone XR screen that houses the sensors and a front-facing camera.
Perhaps the most important design difference is the range of colors available. If the iPhone X is only available in silver and dark gray, then there are six different colors available for XR at once: blue, white, black, yellow, coral, red.
Difference between cameras
There is also a significant difference between the cameras on the iPhone X and iPhone XR. While the iPhone X has two cameras on the back of the device, the iPhone XR has only one camera. At the same time, in terms of its characteristics, the XR camera is in many ways similar to the iPhone 8. It is a 12 megapixel camera, with OIS and ƒ / 1.8 aperture.
However, the iPhone XR has received a number of camera software enhancements that set it apart from the iPhone X and iPhone 8. For example, the XR camera has a Portrait mode with improved bokeh, Depth and Smart HDR. Thanks to these changes, the iPhone XR takes photos as well as the iPhone X, and even better shots in many situations.
Putting it all together, the only significant advantage of the iPhone X is the dual camera module, which allows for dual optical zoom. Otherwise, the iPhone XR’s camera is the same or better.
In terms of hardware, the difference between the iPhone X and the iPhone XR is the new processor. IPhone X uses a 64-bit 6-core 10nm A11 Bionic processor, while the iPhone XR uses a 64-bit 6-core A12 Bionic 7nm process.
Reducing the technical process allowed to make the new processor more efficient and at the same time reduce its power consumption. According to information provided by Apple, compared to its predecessor, the new processor provides a performance increase of up to 15% and consumes 50% less energy. At the same time, the new chip has many improvements that are aimed at more efficient work with neural networks and artificial intelligence. Also, there is an increase in the performance of integrated graphics (up to 50%).
The coprocessor of the novelty also received a number of significant improvements. For example, the number of cores increased from 2 to 8, and the number of processed operations increased from 600 billion to 5 trillion operations per second.
It may seem that this performance is somewhat overkill. But, it is already being used in practice, for example, new functions in the camera application became possible precisely thanks to the new processor.
Differences in autonomy
Another notable difference between the iPhone X and the iPhone XR is battery life. With a new, more efficient processor and a larger battery, iPhone XR’s battery life is noticeably longer. During the presentation, Apple said that this new product will be able to work for an hour and a half more than the iPhone 8 Plus, which was famous for its autonomy.
When compared with the iPhone X, the difference in autonomy is even more noticeable. According to information from the Apple website, the iPhone X smartphone can work 21 hours of talk time, 12 hours of Internet use, 13 hours of video playback and 60 hours of music playback. Whereas the iPhone XR can provide 25 hours of talk time, 15 hours of internet use, 16 hours of video playback and 65 hours of music playback.
Aluminum versus steel
The iPhone XR’s all-round bezel is made of aluminum, just like the iPhone 8.
The frame of the iPhone XS is made of the same materials as the “10”. stainless steel. The back cover of both devices is made of glass.

As a result, the iPhone XS has become the smallest in the lineup. And don’t be fooled by the 0.3-inch difference. the XR is larger than the XS, and noticeably.
But the iPhone XS has an OLED display, and the iPhone XR has an “advanced” IPS. As a result, the flagship will have deeper blacks, more “juicy” and bright picture, as well as a higher resolution. 2436 × 1125 pixels (458 pixels per inch) versus 1792 × 828 pixels (326 pixels per inch). How important is it? Here everyone decides for himself.
P.S. And yes. the iPhone XR does not and will not have 3D Touch, while the XS version still has it (in detail).
The new iPhone XR weighs 194 grams. XS lighter. 177g Not bad. but compare that to the 138g in the iPhone 7!
Comparison of iPhone XS and iPhone XR: is the difference significant?

Comparison of the battery life of the iPhone XS and iPhone XR
And here the iPhone XR is head and shoulders above the opponent. 25 hours of talk time versus 20 for the XS. The new “iPhone” with the prefix “R” bypasses the S-model in terms of the time of work on the Internet. 15 hours against 12, and for video playback. up to 16 hours against 14, and for audio playback. 65 hours against 60.
Why, the iPhone XR lasts longer than the iPhone XS Max! The indicators for both “shovels” are either the same, or slightly better in favor of XR (the smaller diagonal and less “voracious” IPS-matrix affects. OLED in the iPhone XS consumes more). So if you need a “long-playing” smartphone. no questions asked for the iPhone XR.
Comparison of cameras iPhone XS and iPhone XR
Here the difference is also noticeable. the XS received a dual camera (one lens. wide-angle with f / 1.8 and one telephoto lens with f / 2.4).
XR. single however, it is the same wide-angle as in the flagship. The XR will feature Portrait Mode, which previously only appeared on Apple smartphones with two cameras. Of course, it was not without restrictions. firstly, the module on XR can only recognize people, and secondly, only three studio lighting effects (Daylight, Studio Light, Contour Light) are attached to it against five in XS (Daylight, Studio light, contour light, stage light, stage light. mono).
Portrait mode with improved bokeh effect and “Depth” function (the ability to adjust the degree of background blur) is present in both smartphones.
The front cameras of the iPhone XR and iPhone XS are completely identical.
What color to choose iPhone XR?
