We know it's been hard to keep up with all the latest Apple news. First they released the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus after months of delays. Now, we're just 3 weeks away from the iPhone X release. I'm sure most of y'all are rolling your eyes thinking, "WTF is the difference between the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X?" Well, you're not alone in that line of questioning, but rest assured, there's some MAJOR differences — both good and bad.
Technically speaking, while the iPhone 8 is the newest installation to the Apple smartphone empire it's still the same design as the 7 and 7 Plus, which consequently was the same design as the 6 and 6 plus. The iPhone X is going to be the first smartphone from Apple since 2014 with a new design. All things considered, that's pretty darn exciting.
We're not here today to talk about the iPhone X, though. We're here to speculate about how badass the iPhone X plus is going to be. According to BGR:
"We’ve seen two independent reports now that suggests next year’s iPhone lineup will include not just one iPhone X successor, but two. One will be the same size as the upcoming iPhone X, according to these reports, while the second will supposedly be a new Plus model with a larger display. That larger phone — if Apple is indeed planning one — will have battery life the likes of which the world has never seen on a flagship smartphone."
Battery life is definitely at the top of the list for consumer concerns. Who wants a fancy-shmancy phone that lasts all of 20 minutes? Sure, there are some tricks to extend the juice, but with how much these things cost, should buyers really have to start using hacks? If Apple's technology remains consistent, it would mean that the iPhone X plus would have the longest battery life in iPhone history. BGR continued:
"Apple’s Plus phones have historically utilized nearly identical designs as their smaller counterparts, both inside and out. That means Apple’s new L-shaped battery technology in next year’s “iPhone X Plus” would theoretically follow suit. Are you ready for an iPhone with 2-day battery life?"
To answer their question — f--k yes! We want to be able to not crap our pants every time we realize we left our charger home. Sure, it seems like a "first world problem", but, hell! Smartphones have become too integral to our daily lives to have to worry about the screen going black 12 times a day.
