More than anything else, holding a new iPhone means enjoying both seamless productivity and creativity along with a definite style statement that you can keep flaunting till the craze settles in.

If you are in the iPhone ecosystem or wish to own one as part of your bucket list, upgrading to a new handset every festive season makes sense for several reasons – new powerful chip, better camera specifications, more security and, above all, for experiencing the best Cupertino has produced after a year of R&D.

Owning an iPhone in India is still considered a luxury — similar to owning a brand new sedan or going on a foreign trip while your neighbours are jostling for space in the Himalayan hills.

If you have seen people queuing up at Apple Authorised Reseller stores across the country in the last few days, you can definitely sense that slowdown fears are not yet here to bother people who have enough cash to splurge on new iPhone 11 and its more expensive brethren — 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max.

Let us talk about iPhone 11 Pro which sits in the middle of the three new iPhones and with some extra effort on your budget, can slip right in your pocket (taking an EMI route is the best option to relish this astonishing piece of technology).

The 5.8-inch iPhone 11 Pro starts at Rs 99,900 for the 64GB base variant in India. It houses an A13 Bionic chip, 12MP front camera, and a triple real-camera setup (12MP+12MP+12MP), 3046mAh battery and runs the latest iOS 13.

For those who still want to hold a screen size that easily fits in the palm, iPhone 11 Pro is the only new Apple device that comes in the perfect 5.8-inch size. For both genders, carrying it becomes easy as it slips perfectly in the pocket too (for girls, carrying iPhone Pro in the back pocket of the jeans with triple-camera jutting out is turning out to be the latest fad).

Taking selfies or ‘slofies’ has become a boring exercise for several of us but iPhone Pro makes it interesting again, with all-new “Ultra Wide” camera that fundamentally changes the experience by capturing four times more scene, great for taking landscape or architecture photos, tight shots and more.

The new Wide sensor with 100 per cent “Focus Pixels” and advanced software enables Night mode, and delivers huge improvements to photos shot in indoor and outdoor low-light environments, which resulted in brighter images with natural colours and reduced noise.

You are not done yet.

The triple-camera system takes Portrait mode to a new level with the ability to choose Wide and Telephoto framing, enabling Portrait mode with a wider field of view, great for taking portraits of multiple people.

The Telephoto camera helps capture 40 per cent more light compared to last year’s iPhone XS for better photos and videos.

For creative souls, the new TrueDepth sensor in the front camera offers a wider field of view to capture selfies, and next-generation Smart HDR enables more natural-looking photos.

Expressive selfie videos take on a whole new look with the TrueDepth camera that now records 4K video at up to 60 frames per second and 120 fps slo-mo for that perfect “slofie”.

If you are on Instagram and want to edit photos or even videos to charm your followers, “Portrait Lighting” adjustments can be made right in the camera app to adjust the intensity of light on a subject, and a new “High-Key Mono” effect creates a beautiful, monochromatic look for Portrait mode photos.

With iOS 13, use powerful video editing tools in iPhone Pro to rotate, crop, increase exposure and apply filters to videos instantly and stun your social media friends.

iPhone 11 Pro also offers up to four more hours of battery life in a day.

Conclusion: It is a new iPhone, and an 11 Pro! For Rs 1 lakh, it is a testimony to the fact that you own the best. Spending Rs 1.5 lakh or more on smartphones does not make front page news these days. So go, own it, flaunt it, stun your social media followers with perfectly edited photos and videos and call yourself a smartphone ‘Pro’. (IANS)

Apple has managed to reopen nearly 256 retail stores out of more than 500 worldwide, as it aims to safely restart operations.

Apple closed all its retail stores outside Greater China in March as COVID-19 pandemic spread. All the Apple stores in Greater China are now open.

“In China, and later around the world, we were one of the first companies to close our stores. In Greater China, we saw the importance of swift action — and the critical importance of social distance — to slow the virus’ spread,” according to Apple’s head of retail Deidre O’Brien.

“As time has gone on, we’ve continued to refine and expand our in-store health and safety measures, which have proven so effective in places like Greater China, where our stores have been safely open for months,” he added.

Apple is taking some additional steps in most places. Throughout the day, Apple is conducting enhanced deep cleanings that place special emphasis on all surfaces, display products, and highly trafficked areas.

“Face coverings will be required for all of our teams and customers, and we will provide them to customers who don’t bring their own. Temperature checks will be conducted at the door, and posted health questions will screen for those with symptoms — like cough or fever — or who have had recent exposure to someone infected with COVID-19,” O’Brien elaborated.

Apples have high water content thus a great nutrition value especially in summer

Food with high water content is highly prescribed by doctors to stay hydrated during the summers, a season that summons a wave of soaring temperatures, higher than 40-degrees.

A much-loved fruit in India, apples are hydrating heros’ in such a situation. A heatwave can affect human health in a varied manner and to maintain ideal body temperature in this soaring summer, one must remain adequately hydrated, be protected from the sun and maintain hygiene.

Working professionals and people who must step out in summers, are prone to the heatwave impact. Pediatric experts and doctors agree on the benefits of drinking water and eating fruits, especially, apples. ‘An apple a day, keeps the doctor away’ is true as they are rich in a number of vitamins with great anti-inflammatory benefits and many other essential minerals. Washington Apple Commission spells how apples can prove to be a summer-friendly fruit.

People often don’t realise the danger of exposing themselves to extreme heat. Older adults, young children, and people with chronic illnesses are most at greater risk for serious problems. The nutrition benefits of apples may help not only in avoiding such illnesses but may also protect against many such conditions.

As popular as apples are as a fruit, they are enriched in antioxidants, dietary fibers, vitamins and a range of other nutrients that are greatly beneficial in maintaining good health. The fruit is rich in soluble fibers which may help prevent several health conditions and may lower the risk of major diseases such as heat strokes, diabetes and cancer.

The soluble fiber also promotes weight loss and improves gut health. The prebiotic effects of apples help feed the good bacteria in the gut, thus, improving digestion.

Apples are made of 85 percent water and contain vitamins, fibres and antioxidants. A high fibre content is a particularly beneficial property of apples, as improper digestion is a major health concern in the tropical climatic region. Apples are also enriched in antioxidants that help protect the lungs from oxidative damage and help oxygen flow through the blood.
