IPhone XR Revealed At Apple Event

Apple could release three new iPhones at Twitter-streamed live event

This time around - as expected - Apple has announced three new handsets: the "cheap" iPhone Xr, the 5.8-inch iPhone Xs and the huge 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max (not the Xs Plus as had been thought for a little while).

Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB capacity models in space grey, silver and a new gold finish starting at Rs 99,900 and Rs 109,900, respectively, through Apple Authorised Resellers.

Battery life on the iPhone Xs is pegged at 30 minutes more than the iPhone X, while the iPhone Xs Max features the biggest battery Apple has ever made and boosts longevity by 90 minutes.

As with the iPhone X, the new phone has a screen that runs from edge to edge, an effort to maximize the display without making the phone too awkward to hold. The XR will come in black, white, red, yellow, coral, and blue colors.

Apple has just announced the new iPhone XS and its bigger brother XS Max.

Trump declares state of emergency in Carolinas ahead of Hurricane Florence
The only Category 5 hurricanes to hit the USA were Andrew in 1992, Camille in 1969 and an unnamed "Labor Day" hurricane in 1935. Even normal water is warm enough for a storm to form there, but this adds to the storm's fuel and its rainfall.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available for preorder from September 14th and they will be available in stores from September 21st.

iPhone has brough advancement in its camera setup by introducing the innovative depth segmentation via the neural engine, smart HDR capturing images with great detail, range and bokeh quality in the portrait mode images.

These features will be available to USA customers later this year, but Apple did not say when it would make it to the rest of the world. The iPhone Xs Max is similar in size to the iPhone 8 Plus, but with a larger display.

The iPhone Xs, like its predecessor, has a screen that occupies nearly the entirety of the phone's frontage.

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10. And while the iPhone Xs will offer a 512 GB storage option, the Xr will top out at 256 GB.

Apple's New Lineup: iPhone XS, XS Max and (Slightly) Cheaper XR
This could be the iPhone that finally persuades the hundreds of millions of people holding on to old iPhones to upgrade. It's the ideal tool for taking bigger selfies, for pawing at bigger Instagram pictures, for streaming even more Netflix.

However, compared to its more expensive counterparts, the new iPhone XR does have some compromises that were made to shrink it down. There is no 3D Touch feature here, but it does get a new haptic touch based system. Apple is calling this the Liquid Retina display, and it has bezels slightly thicker than the iPhone Xs and Xs Max.

For imaging, the iPhone XR uses a single 12 MP standard shooter which has 1.4 um pixels and a f/1.8 aperture 6-element lens.

So, that appears to be a nail in the coffin for the rumoured "iPhone XS Plus" and "iPhone XC" names, then, which were widely rumoured to be the monikers of the gadgets.

The iPhone XR will be released next month with pre-orders starting on 19 October 2018 in first wave countries. However, in order to keep a strong foothold in the premium segment and increase the accessibility, they have toned down the XS to shape it in the form of iPhone XR.

Apple Watch sports new design, health features
Applications have been redesigned to account for the larger display and Apple has also included new customisable watch faces. It can also detect falls and will alert emergency services if it fails to detect movement 10 minutes after one has occurred.
