Not much has been said about the audio qualities of the new iPhones!

Hardware & Accessories

Hello! As I said in the title of the topic, apple hardly talked about the audio characteristics of the new iPhones. How do they register? I thought I read
somewhere that these new devices, unlike the current ones, would be able to record with 3D audio as the Galaxy have been doing for a long time now. Could
it be true? Mainly it is for this reason that I decided to change iphone, currently I have an iphone x. But before doing that I would like to be sure about
the audio quality of the recordings, especially if it is true that they record with three-dimensional audio. Could someone give me a certain answer? Thank
you!

I don't think so. I don't think the hardware is setup for binaural recording like the senhizer Ambio. Maybe it could be done with software but I'd imagine that microphones this small wouldn't give a very satisfying result, which isn't very apple. They seem to have the approach of doing something well or not at all... For the most part anyway.

Also they did not talk about the battery.

Don't forget, with the battery, they were just launching products and had a few to get through. So it's common they didn't say about the battery life. plus, every use case is different. As for the audio quality, how can you really demo that? It's not even outside of Apple yet.

Apple's website list similar numbers to last year's models which is probably why they didn't say anything. The a14 is more efficient, but it's now powering a 5G modem with a smaller battery. If it's Qualcomm's x55 modem, then it'll be using about double the power of lTE.

They'll only mention things like audio or the battery if is a feature, IE, extra long battery life would be one if they ever did it, which they won't... Battery, as it is now, isn't a feature, it's just a part of the spec.

As I've mentioned though, in another post, it might be that OLED screens means that screen curtain might save more power.
