Jokes aside along with all the memes that we have shared about the "new" iPhone XS, we also always go into this dilemma about whatever you should upgrade or not. That's how Apple is good at marketing their new products (especially how they listed them to confuse the hell all of us). For me? It will be the camera, I was a bit disappointed to know that the new iPhone XS will still swing a 12MP but running on an A12 Bionic, "the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone". Where I would love to introduce the work of incite*, a Design & Technology Production studio based in Los Angeles. They have worked in collaboration with Apple to make a video only #ShotoniPhoneXS. Give it a look! A first look at stunning video shot on the new iPhone XS - the highest quality video of any smartphone. Water, fire, metal and light were used to create these mesmerizing scenes using 4K, Slo-mo, and Time-lapse. #ShotoniPhone by Donghoon J. and Sean S. #ShotoniPhoneXS - Watch the Video More Links Studio Site Instagram Video Gallery
It's a tradition for designers where whenever there is a new iPhone Announcement, the question is who is going to release the newest model mockups for us to update our UI presentations?! Well, it's no short answer but the amazing folks from LS Graphics did it again and for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. We always have enjoyed their work on ABDZ, you should definitely check out their store for more.

Our friends from Unsplash are making some noise with the launch of Unsplash for iOS. The idea is quite simple, bringing awesome images into your iOS applications faster and quite easily. Starting the launch on the iPad and iPhone (Hopefully Android will come soon!), the app is quite playful and quite enjoyable. I love the fact that they enhanced the experience on the iPad, you should definitely give it a try. Unsplash for iOS For nearly five years, 78,222 contributors have been building the largest library of freely usable, high-resolution photos anyone can use for anything. On Unsplash.com, over 481,304 photos have been shared and downloaded over 362 million times. More Links Learn more about Unsplash Get the app Unsplash for iOS In their words Today, we’re bringing all the freely usable photography on Unsplash to iPad and iPhone. And we’re doing it in a way that focuses not only on photography but on the creative use of it. The Unsplash app is super focused on doing just one thing well: getting great images into creative applications quickly and easily. Unsplash photography is meant to be created with. Yet, most acts of creation still happen on “computers.” The next step after you download an Unsplash photo is likely opening a creative tool like Photoshop or Keynote on a desktop or laptop computer.

It's incredible how technology allowed us to express ourselves and so many different ways. Photography is one of the biggest forms of expression and art that took fully advantage or got mass adoption. The cameras on smartphones are getting better every year and they can already replace the traditional cameras. They say that the best camera is the one you have available when you needed. You always have your phone with you, so there's your answer. But to give you a bit more context about, check out the beautiful photography examples that Eric Van Nynatten shared on his Behance profile. It's titled Shots on iPhone, part 1 and 2. As I said, it's not about the equipment as much as the vision to capture day to day moments and make them memorable or should I dare say, magic. For this series of photos shot on iPhone, I wanted to push the capabilities of the iPhone and see if I could achieve the same results as my full-frame mirrorless, from shooting in ideal sunlit settings to low-light conditions. All images were shot on iPhone 6/8 Plus and edited using VSCO & Snapseed apps for iOS.

It's been a little while since our last WPW; following up our comeback with the Wallpaper of the Week series, it’s crazy to imagine there’s more than 350+ wallpapers available to download for your different screen resolutions. Things have changed ever since so we decided to change the formula, each week we’ll try our best to publish one of our own pictures as a challenge. Let us know of your thoughts or suggestions so we can adjust for future endeavors. For this week’s wallpaper, we are sharing this collection from notchless.space, by the name of the site, I think it's pretty clear that its purpose is to hide the mighty notch on your iPhone X. Whenever you like it or not, now there's an option to hide it with a thoughtfully curated feed! All images were thoughtfully curated from Unsplash to match the device’s minimal aesthetic. We put careful consideration into the status bar height and corner radius to create an unobtrusive and optimized composition. More Links Learn more about notchless.space
With the arrival of the latest iPhones, there is of course, the release of accessories for us to get and have it part of the essentials. Called: Stand Series, it has been designed by the folks from Seoul-based creative studio found / Founded for the Mkeke brand. Being two parts and made of the soft rugged material; you gotta love the simplicity and again the attention of details to the cord introduction. It's the little details that truly make a difference and you gotta love that colour! found / Founded is a creative design studio based in Seoul, Korea. Their work is generally related to industrial design, branding and product design (as industrial), check out their projects on Behance. A low-priced smart phone cradle is essential in everyday life. The soft Rugged series stand has a unique structure in which two parts in thin board form are easily separated and assembled. Thus, when separated, it is easy to store because of its thin volume, and when assembled, the smartphone can be mounted firmly in a desk environment. Both products can be docked simultaneously using the existing iPhone and Apple watch charging cable. Because it uses molding language which is representative of Rugged, it emphasizes solid feeling, but it has two charms of simple design and soft finish color and soft feeling.

It's been more than 5 days since the release of the iPhone 8 / 8Plus. Do you have one? Are you still indecisive? Aside from all its premium features, I am more interested in the camera since it's more in-line with what is my criteria from a phone, especially being a nerd with mobile photography. I did some surfing on Instagram and I tried to find images that rocked the iPhone 8 Plus camera which is a Dual 12 MP, (28mm, f/1.8, OIS & 56mm, f/2.8), phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom, quad-LED (dual tone) flash. What do you think? If you would like to know more about the iPhone 8 / 8Plus or purchase yours, check out the Apple iPhone 8 site. "A new generation of iPhone."

Apple has introduced the iPhone X, we heard so many mixed comments about Apple's latest "innovation". On the other hand, it proves how much their products affect our opinions because we do use them every single day. I personally think that Apple did a superb job at building an ecosystem where once you are inside, you are fine as it is. Nobody likes changes! As a tradition of any new iPhone release, there is plenty of mockups popping around. So we decided to put together a collection of free iPhone X mockups for you guys.

A few days ago Apple announced their new lineup of phones including the widely expected and leaked iPhone X. There was nothing new due to the huge amount of leaks and prototypes that were being reviewed months before and the biggest thing about the new phone is the screen. It pretty much takes the whole front face of the phone but has a very distinct cutout at the top to case the cameras and sensors, the iconic and weird, iPhone X Notch. Personally I don't like it. It looks like a badge that when the screen is using white or light colors. With black it looks dope. However the most amazing thing for me and the reason of this post is to highlight how much the design community embrace any new Apple release. It's not a rant, it's just an observation. Many devices in the past had to create workarounds due to similar constraints and they were always fiercely criticized by designers. The best example was the Moto 360 smartwatch. But enough of comparisons, below you can see a compilation of recent Dribbble posts already adopting and promoting the new look of iPhone X. iPhone X Notch
Today we've witnessed the latest from Apple, whatever you feel it was amazing or not; they have released the new iPhone. It's here and it's what Apple think will be the future of the smartphone. Introducing the iPhone X, coming with a new size of 5.8-in with a "super" retina display. Wait! We are not going to go through its features but more into their human interface guidelines. Basically what has changed on the UI aspect of things that will probably affect our work somehow if you are in iOS Design. Let's dig! Apple also shared their UI Design Resources, how cool is that? They provided files for Photoshop, Sketch and Adobe XD where based on the iOS SDK, it's just a really good and reliable resource to dig through for your next project or just by curiosity. ...a large, high-resolution, rounded, edge-to-edge display that delivers an immersive, content-rich experience like never before. Image via Apple Developer Site Screen Size In Portrait, the iPhone X has the same width as its predecessors (iPhone 6, iPhone 7, and iPhone 8) but the display is actually higher of 20% on the vertical space for the content space. To be specific, it's 145pt taller. For our UI assets, they will have to be @3x to support its high-resolution display. • Portrait Dimensions: 1125px × 2436px (375pt × 812pt @3x) • Landscape Dimensions: 2436px × 1125px (812pt × 375pt @3x) Layout "Safe" Area There are many things to think about when designing for the iPhone X including the newly sensor housing on the front. Make sure to remember about the backgrounds to give a fully immersive full-screen experience to the edges of the display all the way to the bottom. Apple is advising us to design with a mindset of having the content centered, looks right with the different orientation and to stay away from the corners including the sensor's area. Please take a look at the different possible situations below. We gotta think about the aspect ratio as well especially how your UI will behave with auto-hiding for like playing videos or photo slideshows for example. Gestures Since Apple got rid of the "home button of the iPhone X, they had to rethink about the gestures. Just to add to the list, now we have home screen, app switcher, notification center, control center and also Face ID. Regarding iOS 11, I am not a huge fan of how you have 3 different ways to swipe down, from the home screen. We can leave these thoughts of the full release of the next iOS.

It’s that time of the year where a lot of tech blog/news would share their rumours about the next iPhone. With the fact that Apple is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, most of us are kind of eager what they will come up with. Bezels? Tiny bezels or none? Let’s take all the features aside, let’s take a look at this product design by Moe Slah’s iPhone Concept and what was his direction for the UI/UX. I really enjoyed his refined design with an updated iOS 10 UI and think it will be greatly received by everyone. In all honesty, I wish Apple will come up with a total overhaul of their iOS that gotten quite old to use every single day. Published via Behance, Moe Slah is a digital creative director based in Alexandria, Egypt. With more than 10 years experience in the design field, Moe has also a background in business administration and management information systems. He wears also many hats from also being a Behance Ambassador and worked with International companies in USA, Canada, Australia and more.
We would like to start this review to thank the kind folks from Otterbox for letting us try and play with their latest and the greatest line of products uniVERSE Case System for the iPhone. Available (for now) from your iPhone 7/7Plus and 6S/6SPlus, you’ll be welcomed with an iPhone case that is the true reflection of the core and durability of Otterbox and along with all those swappable modules (accessories) that will just enhanced your experience with the case. I just came back from a trip from Iceland and I took all this gear with me in the wilderness where I got to really experience and make a proper review instead of my own boring city backyard. Let’s start! My Modules uniVERSE Case PolarPro PowerPack Trippler Tripod Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive First Impressions I would say that on a day-to-day basis, the module that was most useful to me was the PolarPro PowerPack. It saved the battery life of my iPhone so many many times and as we all know that iPhones with a few years in the belly, their batteries tend to die really fast during the course of your day. Knowingly I liked the fact that you are able to rely on this module at all times. You can easily detach the Accent Plate (that’s how they all connect, through your Lightning Connector) and swipe in your desired swappable module and take it out when you’re done. It’s that simple and like the modular concept of the uniVERSE Case System. It’s made to be useful when you need so you don’t have to carry a larger iPhone around all the time. Everything is well built and it doesn’t feel cheap at all. Otterbox is known of making durable cases so it’s not surprise that they would partner with brands that would reflect its mentality. Otterbox is known of making durable cases so it’s not surprise that they would partner with brands that would reflect its mentality. Which one should you pick? I would say that it depends of your needs, basically. If you were in a course of a trip like when I went to Iceland, I would say that all the modules were very useful. I was able to use the Trippler Tripod as a tripod and a very solid stabilizer for my DSLR (micro four thirds camera with a lens) to film some timelapses and footage. That tripod can also be turned into a selfie stick as well, easy-to-use and doesn’t take that much space in your travel gear. With that tripod, it comes with mounts where you can attach your case, a GoPro and your DSLR. As for the Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens, it was a great addition for the bunch. You can easily attach it to the case and live it up with the lenses that Olloclip are greatly famous for. Another issue with the iPhone is its storage capabilities, this is where the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive comes in handy. You can move all your pictures and videos to the drive so it’s transferable to your PC or Mac. The case is proven to push your phone to another level to simply ease up and enhance your daily life so you can tackle it even more. Proven to push your phone to another level to simply ease up and enhance your daily life so you can tackle it even more. Pros I would say that I loved the most about the uniVERSE Case System is how everything is carefully considered and well built. Nowadays, our phones are becoming a part of ourselves where we give a trust to our gear to last through our daily routine. It’s creating an importance on how useful it can be and how durable it will last. With Otterbox, you’ll get exactly that. Cons There’s isn’t much to say about that. The only thing I can point out is I felt that the Olloclip 4-in-1 Lens felt a little bit loose when you have it installed on the case. That’s pretty much it. Final Words The uniVERSE Case System from Otterbox is a solid product line with many features that can easily make your life more productive, efficient and at the same time giving the right protection needed for your phone. From utility, photography, media, business, wellness, power modules; there’s something for everyone at a very affordable price.
The wallpaper of this week is a photo I took while driving up north on Pacific Highway 1, one of the most beautiful drives in my humble opinion. The cliffs and the ocean combined with a beautiful winter blue sky will always offer great photo opportunities. It's hard to describe the feeling of 'driving up the 1' through photos. For me, there's nothing like the cold breeze of the ocean and the sound of the water hitting the rocks on deserted beaches, no houses just you and nature. It's a connection hard to describe in words, but I hope this picture captures a bit of what I am trying to depict. Full image for download
