On the optics front, you get a triple rear camera setup that is led by a 108MP primary Samsung HM2 sensor with an f/1.89 lens. It sits alongside an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP macro lens. On the front lies a 16MP selfie shooter. It packs a 4,500mAh dual-cell lithium polymer battery that supports 120W fast charging. Moreover, you get a compatible charger in the box. Connectivity options include 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.2, GPS/ A-GPS, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The 204-gram phone comes in a glass body and has IP53 certification for dust and water resistance.

On the other hand, the Xiaomi 11i has all of the same specifications, except the battery and fast charging. The 11i packs a single-cell 5,160mAh battery that supports a maximum of 67W charging It is priced at 24,999 Indian rupees, while the Hypercharge variant starts at 26,999 Indian rupees. While there is no word on global availability at the moment, Xiaomi often rebadges its “i”-branded phones to sell in non-Asian markets. The 11i, for instance, is strikingly similar to the Redmi Note 11-series which have been tipped for a European launch.

Xiaomi’s 11T Pro with 120W fast charging finally set to launch outside of Europe
Xiaomi 11T Pro.

Xiaomi has started teasing the launch of its 11T Pro outside Europe. To recall, it was first released in Europe in September last year as the first smartphone with 120-watt fast charging for its 5,000mAh battery. Nearly four months after the release, it is all set to go official in India on January 19.

More recently, Xiaomi India took to Twitter to tease the launch of the 11T Pro, marketing it as the 'The Hyperphone" for its blazing-fast charging speed. It's expected to be launched in three storage variants of 8GB RAM/28GB storage, 8GB/256GB, and 12GB/256GB. In Europe, it is an upper-midrange smartphone that starts at 649 euros, but it's likely to be priced lower in India.

How to copy text from your camera with Live Text in iOS 15
Live Text demonstration in iOS 15.

Apple's iOS 15 is here, and that means lots of new features if you're using an eligible iPhone or iPod Touch. One of the biggest new additions is Live Text, a new feature that intelligently recognizes text in images or from your camera and allows you to copy and paste it. For instance, you could copy-paste a phone number directly into your dialer just by aiming your camera at it in real life. Here's how to use Live Text in iOS 15.
Eligible devices
Unfortunately, not every device can use Live Text -- and that includes devices that would otherwise be able to use iOS 15. Unfortunately, use of the feature is limited to those iPhones with the Apple A12 Bionic processor or newer. That includes the following devices:

iPhone XS and XS Max
iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max
iPhone SE (2020)
iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, and 12 Pro Max
iPhone 13, 13 Mini, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max

The best waterproof cases for the iPhone 11 Pro
iPhone 11 Pro Back

The Apple iPhone 11 Pro is the smallest of the iPhone 11 range, but don't underestimate it. The iPhone 11 Pro is equipped with a powerful A13 Bionic processor, and the tech underlying the 5.8-inch Super Retina XDR OLED is just as impressive as its larger brethren. The stainless steel frame is just as strong as the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and it comes with an IP68-rating for dust and water resistance. It's an impressive package for sure, but like everything, it has its limits.

The IP68 rating allows the iPhone 11 Pro to be fully immersed in fresh water and survive to tell the tale, but only for 30 minutes and up to 4 meters deep. While that might insulate it against slips into the pool or the bath, you're still going to want stronger protection if your iPhone is going to be immersed for longer. That's where waterproof cases come in, adding extra waterproofing to make sure your phone is able to survive. We've covered the best iPhone 11 Pro cases before, but the cases on this list don't just protect against bumps and scratches, they extend or reinforce the iPhone's water resistance. These are the best waterproof cases for the iPhone 11 Pro around right now.
