Apple Watch Series 4 announced with larger displays

Image Source All Things How

At a special event Wednesday in Cupertino, California, Apple introduced the newest entrants to its smartphone lineup: the iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR. The iPhone Xs starts at $999 for the 64GB version, while the Xs Max will cost $1,099.

Others pointed out that it was a missed opportunity, arguing that the firm should have called its XS Max - which has the biggest iPhone display yet - the iPhone XL. The iPhone is the largest contributor to Apple's top line, accounting for more than half of total revenue.

Sadly, group FaceTime that supports up to 32 simultaneous participants is still missing from iOS 12 - Apple's planning to add it later this year.

Unlike the dual-SIM setups we have seen in Android phones for several years now, there will be no secondary SIM slot in the new iPhone XS and iPhone XR models, except in China, Hong Kong, and Macau.

Apple appears set to continue its practice of higher pricing outside of the United States.

That wasn't all, though - towards the end of the event, Apple revealed that it had one last trick up its sleeve: the iPhone XR, the company's newest budget smartphone offering.

And instead of using the physical button to get back to your home screen, you can swipe up from the bottom of the screen at any time to do the same thing.

That LCD bit is important, because it's part of why the XR costs $250 less than the XS (enough acronyms for you?). Greater screen area allows for app icons and fonts that are bigger and easier to read, while "complications" have been "beautifully enhanced to be more precise and informative", says Apple. As 9to5Mac notes, the only place where Apple had even mentioned AirPower was on the iPhone X product page, which has since been removed to make way for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xr.

Hurricane Florence weakens to Category 2 as storm takes aim at Southeast

Apple opened its event by announcing the new Apple Watch Series 4 with a 30 percent bigger display compared to its predecessor. The phones will start shipping on 21 September.

The smartwatches are able to detect hard falls, and an electrical heart rate sensor can take an electrocardiogram.

It also has an updated accelerometer and gyroscope as well as a new built-in EKG scanner, marking the first time an EKG product has been available over the counter directly to consumers.

So if you do want to connect your standard wired headphones, you'll need to pay £9 for the adapter.

Better still: It'll get the update to Watch OS 5 when the new software arrives next week, before the Series 4 is even available. If a fall is detected and the person remains immobile for more than a minute, the device automatically calls their emergency contact. "I'll have to sell off both", joked one user on the platform. However, the actual volume of the watch is slimmer than the Series 3.

Apple continues to manufacture some of the most sought after phones in the world.

It underlines what a powerful franchise Apple has created and that the public's love affair with the iPhone is stronger than ever. This means that you can use the services of more than two telecom operators on the same iPhone.
