For Tesla fans, one other Elon Musk-inspired product to look forward to is the powerful Tesla model pi smartphone. However, the phone will compete with the other phones in the market including the popular iPhone made by Apple. In this post, we put the Tesla model Pi Phone and the Apple iPhone side by side. So let’s discuss Tesla Pi Phone Vs. Apple iPhone.
Apple is the universal name at this point as it sells as many phones as it can make. Last year alone the Cupertino-based company sold almost 200 million units globally. There is no doubt that Apple is getting more than a few things right with its iPhones which it updates yearly. However, it is about to welcome one more competitor. This latest competition Is backed by the might of the world’s wealthiest man who has literally infinite resources to throw behind his new product with the backing of Musk. The Tesla Python has everything it needs to succeed because Musk has a track record of making a success out of everything he touches. If you are in doubt, Tesla sells the most electric vehicles today while SpaceX is launching satellites to orbit at a breakneck speed for itself and other clients. It is also taking Nasa astronauts to space and returning them. likewise, his Boring company is well boring away under our feet. Musk also has a million fans who undoubtedly like to use a phone made by Musk to go nicely with their other Tesla product
Before continuing with the Tesla model pi and Apple I phone comparison, Apple is rumored to be competing with Tesla. The iPhone maker has been linked to rumors that it has been making electric cars for a long time. The car is not here yet but the talks have refused to go away. However, what is not a rumor is that Musk had once tried to sell Tesla to Apple during what he called production hell when the automaker was in deep crisis, however, Musk never got to meet the CEO of Apple Tim Cook. Tesla survived and has since blossomed. So how does the Tesla model Pi Phones stand against the Apple I phone?
How will the phones be made? Apple famously does not manufacture its phones. The company only designs and tests them in US and contracts out the actual production. It has partners worldwide that make the components including camera lenses, chips, screens so forth. Even its biggest competitors Samsung has made batteries for Apple. The accelerometer is made by Bosch Sensortec based in Germany while the gyroscope is made by St microelectronics based in Switzerland. Two companies that assemble the phones for Apple are Foxconn and Pegatron both based in Taiwan but with factories in many countries. If Tesla wants to stick with the tradition of assembling its own products, it could be built its own assembly plants.
However, building the plant for making phones is quite different from EV plants. The company might also try a cautious approach by contracting out a few batches.
The camera setups of the two phones are remarkably similar based on concepts floating around. However, the latest and most powerful iPhone the iPhone 13 pro has three lenses at the back of the Tesla model Pi Phone has been shown to have four lenses. the iPhone takes excellent pictures including wide lens photos but the mode Pi Phone can do more for example you can point the Pi Phone in the starry sky at night and take quality high-resolution pictures without needing a long exposure. you also use one lens to take a picture while another lens captures a video front.
At this stage, the iPhone is popular for its notched screen. in fact, Apple made the design famous for the notch houses the front camera, and other sensors. However, while other phone makers have tried different designs like a punched camera, Apple has only shrunken the size of the notch. many people do not like the design as it takes up valuable screen real estate and ruins the aesthetic but have to put up with it to use an Apple phone. However, the model python comes with neither a notch nor a punch, making the screen continuous and pleasing to look at the trick is Tesla has put the camera under the screen and out of the way until you need it. one other thing that the model Pi Phone has under the screen but which the iPhone lacks is the fingerprint scanner. you will be able to unlock your python by placing your finger on one part of the screen which is a very convenient method.
iPhone has a textured mac glass back that is susceptible to cracking when dropped which is why it is a course of wisdom to slap a case on it as soon as you unbox it. It has a prominent Apple logo at the back. The python has a prominent logo at the back too but the phone has the ability to change color based on sunlight this is due to the photochromic coating on the phone.
iPhone charges through a port or wirelessly with complaints rampant about how slow the latter is compared to other flagship phones while wireless charging has not been confirmed for the Pi Phone. It will include embedded solar panels so you can charge it with power from the sun rather than waiting to get where you can find a socket. that is not difficult for Tesla to achieve as it has a solar panel production facility processing power.
Apple continues to improve its iPhone processor each year although the improvements have not been earth-shattering for the past few years. the latest iPhone has the a15 bionic chip with one more GPU in the flagship model while Tesla has not released details about the processor in its Pi Phone. it is known that it will be powerful because the model python will be used to mine cryptocurrency. of course, at this point, it is known the Pi Phone will literally travel farther than the iPhone as it will be eventually used on mars by colonists of the planet. Musk wants people to live on the red planet permanently and he has to provide a currency for them to be able to transact businesses and earn a living. this is why he is creating mars coins. the Pi Phone will have the capacity to mine mars coins. the phone will also serve as your wallet whether you’re on earth or mars and you will be able to pay for your groceries gas and so forth without having to reach for your wallet or credit cards cryptocurrency.
One more reason that model python will need a powerful processor is that it will also use Oron technologies from Musk’s neural link which tries to read signals from the human brain by implanting chips inside. it is not for sinister reasons as the technology helps to correct some health issues and can potentially help people with speech impediments put their thoughts into words.
There were rumors that the iPhone 13 would come with satellite connectivity but that didn’t happen. However, the python will be able to connect to Tesla’s Starlink satellite service for a high-speed internet connection. you have probably heard about Starlink, one of Musk’s latest businesses. it is spreading like wildfire despite still being in beta technically.
Testers are willing to pay 500 for the dish and 99 per month to access fast-speed internet anywhere there on earth. through SpaceX‘s styling satellites in space, the service will soon leave beta and more people will join. However, something more interesting is that Spacex applied to provide some telephony services while the service details are not yet known. There is no doubt the Pi Phone will benefit from it. it might mean you do not need to purchase a sim card to work the python integration with other Tesla products.
The iPhone has a Tesla app which many Tesla car owners use to control their vehicles remotely. However, since the iPhone’s OS is not within Tesla’s control the app remains a third-party-owned app which restricts some features. However, the Tesla model python will come with tighter integration with Tesla vehicles and other products including solar panels home battery energy solutions, and so forth availability.
The Apple iPhone has been available for years and Apple has not gotten tired of releasing new models every year, however, the Tesla model python is still on the way as Tesla still has to finalize the features and the design but nothing says it will take longer to be available.
So this was whole about the upcoming Tesla Pi Phone. So what do you think? Which will be the best phone in 2022? Do you think the Tesla model python has what it takes to compete with the Apple smartphone? Let’s wait and watch until the Pi Phone releases.
