3 new iPhones Xs, Xs Max & Xr and launched at Apple event

Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

It has a single rear camera though, a 12MP wide-angle sensor, but it has a portrait mode as well. Under this, you can change the Bokeh effects even after clicking the photo.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are shipping in 64GB, 256GB or 512GB - the largest in-built storage ever shipped on an Apple-branded smartphone. While past models have been available in up to three colors, this year, Apple is offering the iPhone XR in six: Black, White, Product (Red), Yellow, Coral, and Blue. Tim Cook said that this iPhone is by far the most advanced model.

Inside the new iPhone models is an updated Apple A12 Bionic processor.

Apple has launched the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR, and the biggest ever iPhone, the iPhone XS Max, giving substance to earlier speculative reports.

The iPhone XS Max, along with the iPhone XS was announced today and goes on sale September 21.

The iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available in 64-GB, 256-GB, and 512-GB versions. LCD is still the standard display technology in the mainstream iPhone lineup.

The new iPhone XS Max will also feature the largest battery added to an Apple phone to date, and both new iPhone XS models will be capable of using two SIM cards and two phone numbers at once. Pricing for the iPhone Xs will start at $999, while the iPhone Xs Max will start at $1,099. Indeed, even Apple executives remarked that the iPhone SE was markedly more popular than they initially anticipated when the device first launched back in March of 2016. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max also get a new Gold colour option, apart from Space Grey and Silver. Wider stereo playback creates a more immersive soundstage.

In case you were also wondering, each of the new phones, despite otherwise edge-to-edge displays, has a "notch" at the top of their screens that masksthe front camera and sensors.

The iPhone XR is IP67 dust and water resistant.


However, Apple won't be including the dongle with newly-purchased iPhones - and each dongle costs R199 each. Apple WatchSeries 4 has a redesigned UI with new complications. The neural engine has "only" have twice the number of cores as the previous generation, but it's hugely more powerful - it can do 5 trillion operations, up from 600 billion. It also captures interframes, plus a long exposure, all of which is merged into a single photo with awesome dynamic range.

A breakthrough new 12MP dual camera system with 2x optical zoom and dual optical image stabilisation introduce a new era of iPhone photography. Larger and deeper pixels improve image fidelity and low-light performance.

Apart from the new display size and panels on the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, the new devices come equipped with the A12 Bionic chipset.

The second-gen version of Apple's ARKit platform also debuts in iOS 12, boasting improved face tracking, realistic rendering, 3D object detection and shared experiences.

Depth Control in action.

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10.

Apple has ditched the Home button in favor of Face ID.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it worked with Apple to develop apps for the Apple Watch and has been taking steps to ease the regulatory pathway for companies seeking to create digital healthcare products.

What happened was that Apple failed to adequately inform iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s users that iOS will throttle the speed of their devices when battery health issues are detected, to prevent shutdowns.
