Apple iPhone 11 Pro Silver Unboxing First Look

iPhone 11 Pro Silver

Hi Guys and welcome to 123. In this video, we will show you a first look at the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Silver. While the iPhone 11 has the Pro name. Right off the bat, I am not sure that these models have enough PRO type features.

Apple have focused on four main features for this iPhone. The Display gets a small upgrade. Battery life a big upgrade. Some small design changes and the new Cameras.

iPhone 11 Pro Silver – new features

The design does grow on you. When the pictures came out of those three cameras, they looked awful. However, getting one in your hand and seeing it in person will change your mind. Another great design change is the matt finish on the back. Its such an improvement over the glossy finish. Even if that finish makes the iPhone a little more slippery. I think its worth it.

iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max sizes and price

The iPhone 11 Pro comes in two different sizes. You have the Pro and the Pro Max. The Pro has a 5.8 inch display while the Max has a 6.5 inch display. Starting price for the Pro is $999 USD while the Max will set you back $1099 USD. They come in four different colours. Space Grey, Silver, Midnight Green and Gold. And you have three different capacity’s to choose from 65GB, 256GB and 512GB.

Inside the box – Accessories

So after lifting the lid the first thing see is the iPhone 11 Pro in Silver with the stunning frosted glass back panel. Normally you would see some paper work first, but this time you get to see the iPhone right away along with that new triple camera design.

Other accessories under the iPhone is the Welcome to iPhone quick guide. Which guides news users on all the buttons on the phone.  We also have the sim eject tool. And some Apple stickers.

Next up we get a set of lighting connected ear pods. In addition, the BIG news is you get the 18 watt power adapter. This means you can charge the battery up to 50% in only 30 mins. That’s a massive improvement over the smaller 5 watts adapters. I have the Australian adapter, however if your are in the US you can expect to have the US adapter.  Lastly, we have a USB C to lighting cable to support the fast charging.

The iPhone 11 Pro Silver

On the back of the phone you have the three dimensional machined glass back panel which Apple says this is the strongest glass on any iPhone. I am not going to test that but, this design does make the camera look more integrated. Inside the camera bump you will find three cameras with matching metal rings around the lenses. It is a nice look and it’s hard to tell if they are uneven or if it just an optical illusion. Don’t forget we still have wireless charging 7.5 watts.

Three Cameras, Telephoto, Wide & Ultra Wide.

The iPhone Pro is the only iPhone that has a stainless steel frame as you can see from the nice polished finish around the edges. One of the biggest new features is the battery life. Apple have added an extra 5 hours over the 10S which is a massive improvement for the iPhone. However the trade off for that is the phones are thicker and heavier.

On the left side we have the volume up and down and mute switches. On the right side we have the sleep wake power button and sim tray. However these button have been moved down slightly to make them easier to reach.

Some improvements on wireless charging, but I still had to move the iPhone around to get it to charge!

There has been some improvement with fast charging, however you still might need to move the phone around on the wireless charging pad to get it to charge. On the bottom we have a speaker on one side and microphone on the other as well as the lighting USB connector in the center.

iPhone 11 Pro Specs

Along the top once again we the earpiece which double as the second part of the stereo speakers. And these speakers sound much louder than the iPhone 10s.These phones do come with new OLED displays and they are 15% more energy efficient. But they are also brighter with 800 nits of Max brightness and can go up to 1200 nits in HDR content.The water resistance has also been improved, its still IP 68, but the depth has been doubled to four meters.

Those Cameras!

Cameras working together

So lets take a look at the all new cameras on the back. The 3 cameras all have 12 megapixels, and the camera in the top left has a F1.8 aperture with a 6 element lens an optical image stabilization. Plus we now get 100% focused pixels which helps improve auto focus in low light conditions.The Telephoto camera has a larger F 2.0 aperture and it let 40% more light into the camera.

The UltraWide camera has an F2.4 aperture and 120 degree field of view. The cameras all work together so there is no flipping between. Ill give you a demo, I start in the Ultra wide then move to Telephoto then the Wide camera. You can use the wheel to toggle up to the 2 x optical zoom, however after that it’s a software zoom. How good is it though you can see all the way down the street!!!

iPhone 11 Pro Camera Zoom

Photo Examples

And the photos come up really nice too here some examples.

Lets not forget about the new 12 megapixel front facing camera with a wide angle lens. Now its able to record 4k video at 60 frames per second plus because it’s a wider lens you don’t need to hold the phone further away to get a selfie. It also now comes with a slow motion feature so if you want to do a slowfie as Apple calls it you can.

This year’s CPU is the A13 Bionic CPU, which is a 2nd gen 7 nanometer chip and it main focus is energy efficiency. So you should see a about 20% increase in performance and about 30 to 40% improvement in energy efficiency. Of course, this improves the battery life which make gaming even better on the iPhone.

Gaming PC Settings – Nvidia Control Panel

iPhone Battery Drain – Is your iPhone letting you down?

Setup Bedtime on iPhone

Gaming PC Settings – Nvidia Control Panel

Use the Nvidia control panel to increase performance of your games.

Nvidia Control Panel – What can it fix?

If you are having issues with your Gaming Pc such as Low Frame rates
Game lag or Game Stuttering, then this video should help. By following this video and optimizing the Nvidia control panel you can do the following.

  • Increase your Frames rates.
  • Fix Game Stuttering
  • Increase power
  • Optimise Nvidia GPU
  • Best colour settings and brightness for games
  • Smooth out your gameplay

As mentioned this video is for Nvidia GPU, If you have an AMD GPU I plan to do video for AMD as well so make sure you hit the subscribe button.

Nvidia Control Panel – Config

Alright first step is to open your Nvidia control panel. You can do this by right clicking the Desktop and selecting Nvidia control panel.
If you cant find it there try looking in the bottom right hand corner of your screen near the time. If you still cant find it, check what GPU you have installed by right clicking the start button and selecting Device Manager.
Under Display adapters you can check what Nvidia GPU you have and download the driver for it.

Download your GPU drivers – Nvidia.com

Head over to nvidia.com and download your driver or you can download the GeForce Experience software and I will leave links to those pages in the description below.

In the Nvidia control panel go to Adjust image settings with preview. Click on use 3D image settings and click Apply.
Next up click on Manage 3D settings and make sure you are on the Global Settings Tab. These settings will apply globally you can change these at any time or click restore if you want to set settings back to defaults.

  • Set Ambient Occlusion to Off
  • Anisotropic filtering to Off
  • Antialiasing to Off
  • Leave Gamma correction On
  • Antialiasing – Mode Off

Antialiasing on or off?

Don’t worry you can still turn Antialiasing on in Game. Also if the options aren’t the same as this video just change the options that are the same.

  • CUDA -GPUS Should be set to all.
  • DSR Factors should be off.
  • With Maximum pre rendered frames set this to 1, if you have an older pc you can try setting this to 2 or 3. But if you have a newer PC set this to 1.Multi-Frame Sampled AA set to Off. Open GL set to Auto.
  • Power Management Mode set this to Prefer Maximum Performance.
  • Preferred Refresh rate set it to Highest Available.
  • Shader Cache set to On.
  • Turn on – Texture Filtering – Anisotropic
  • Texture Filtering – Negative LOD Bias set to Allow
  • Texture Filtering – Quality set to High Performance
  • Threaded Optimisation you can set to Auto, however if you play games like PUBG, FORTNIGHT and Battlefield which are quite demanding. You can set this to On.
  • Triple buffering set to Off
  • Vertical sync to Off
  • Last setting Virtual Reality pre-rendered frames set this to the same value as Maximum pre rendered frames.

Once you are done make sure you click Apply. Once you have set this go ahead and click Apply.
Next up go back to the left hand side and click on Adjust desktop colour settings.
Select the Use Nvidia Settings on the right.
Click Apply then click Yes.

PRO TIP!

Heres a little secret. If you play first person shooters you have just made the colours much better than the default ones by selecting Use Nvidia settings. Also if you scroll down to the Digital vibrance slider its default settings is 50%. If you slide this upto 80% suddenly the dark areas of your game will become much brighter. This will allow you to see your emimenes in game before they see you. This really helped me allot in PUBG.

nvidia control panel
PRO TIP: Use Nvidia settings to control brightness and colour – this helps when spotting enemies.

Best image and colour settings

Click Apply and then go to the Adjust video colour settings.
Next up select the with the Nvidia settings. Click onthe Advanced tab.
In the Dynamic range drop down menu select Full. Next click Apply this should allow you to see better colours when watching videos.

Next go to the Adjust video image settings.
In here you can also use the Nvidia settings and change these however you like. These last two settings only change video and image settings outside of Games and they wont effect Gaming performance.

Another point to mention is, if you update your Nvidia driver, make sure you come back to this video and check that the driver update hasnt reset your Nvidia control panel settings back to defaults. And lastly I get asked allot of questions about customising Windows 10 and AMD settings I will do a few more videos on this topic so do me a favor. Hit the subscribe button and smash the bell icon.

iPhone Battery Drain – Is your iPhone letting you down?

If you having issues with yor iPhone it could caused by problems with your Battery.
iPhone battery drain Issues you might experience are:

  • Apps are slow to launch
  • Slow frame rates while scrolling
  • Backlight dimming
  • Lower speaker volume
  • Gradual frame rate reductions in some apps
  • Camera flash disabled
  • Apps refreshing in background may require reloading upon launch

If you are having these issues mentioned the next step is to check your battery health and you can do that by going into Settings, Battery, Battery Health.

iPhone battery drain
iPhone Battery Drain – Battery Health

The first thing you need to look at is the Maximum Capacity %. As you can see here on my older iPhone 7 the Maximum Capacity 75%. Well what does that mean?If you compare that with my iPhone 8 which has Maximum Capacity of 100%. It means that every time I charge my iPhone 7 I am only getting a 75% charge of the battery.

iPhone Battery Drain – Check your Maximum Capacity.

So guys go ahead and check what the Maximum Capacity % is on your iPhone right now what number is it set too? I would be interested in knowing. So if my brand new iPhone use to give me 10 hours of battery life on a full charge and I am missing 25% I only get 7.5 hours now instead of 10 hours I use to get.

What do the other messages mean?

Under Peak Performance you will get a series of other messages and they mean different things. The first one is Performance is normal which means just that its normal. Nothing to worry about. The second one is Performance management applied. This means your iPhone shutdown because it couldn’t handle the power needed to perform a function. This management should stop the iPhone from crashing in the future.

The Battery Health unknown message – means that the iPhone can’t talk to the battery for some reason. Could be due to a hardware fault. If you get this take your iPhone into Apple.

Performance management turned off – if you get this message you have turned the Performance management off and your iPhone has crashed. The iPhone will turn this feature back on to stop future shutdowns.

Battery health degraded – This is the error I was getting on my iPhone 7. This means the battery is not as good as it was and it will need replacing to improve the performance and battery life.

Important Battery Message –
This error only Applies to the iPhone X series. It means that the iPhone can’t verify if the battery is genuine. This might be helpful to check if you are buying the iPhone second hand. Otherwise you can take the iPhone to a Apple Authorized service provider.

Apple Shutting Down iTunes

Hi Guys
I want to show you guys what will happen to your iTunes when Apple upgrade you to the new MacOS Catalina which is due to be released around Monday 23 September 2019. I am getting a few people asking about what will happen to iTunes and their music files. Is Apple shutting down iTunes? Watch the video to find out.

In this video I have added one MP3 file to test with. One video file and a pods cast.
Alright so the version I am currently running is MacOS High Seirra. Version 10.13 and we will upgrade that to MacOS Catalina 10.14.

I am going to do the upgrade with my MacOS Catalina USB installer that I created in a previous video and I will put a link to that video here.

After the upgrade – Shutting down iTunes

Ok the upgrade has finished and now you can see iTunes has been replaced with three new icons. Apple Music, Podcasts and Apple TV.
If you start by opening Apple Music this is where your Music files should now be stored.
If we check for our test MP3 we can see it now shows up under the recently added menu in our Apple Music app.

Next up you can check out the Podcasts app. If you open that you should see your podcasts list. And theres the one we added earlier.

And the last app to check will be your Apple TV app. All your video content will be added here.
And theres our 123myIT video I added.

shutting down itunes
3 new apps Apple Music, Podcasts and Apple TV.

Your probably wondering what about iTunes for Windows users. Well apparently it will stay the same.
