Meet the new iPhones

Meet the new iPhones

Trying them just after listening to the iPhone XS Max, they don't seem to have the insane, nearly room-filling stereo separation that the Max's speakers do. (I couldn't test it because it wasn't activated on the phones in the demo room.) In general, our carriers have banned dual-SIM phones in the past; the most successful so far have been OnePlus phones, which haven't been sold through carriers.

The US 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.

Others found the company's lack of creativity to be a bigger issue, with many simply calling the new names "dumb" and 'lazy'.

With two of them starting at $999 or higher in the United States, Apple appears to be taking advantage of a strong USA economy, low unemployment, and rising household wealth.

The way that Apple's much-vaunted processing power, AI and "neural networks" get used by developers may be what determines if this goes down as a classic or an also-ran in the iPhone pantheon. In its financial reports, Apple doesn't break down its phone sales per region, but it would be interesting to see how these prices will affect its sales outside of the U.S. Many operators offer customers the ability to change their mobile package if their data needs change, but eSIM would allow them to pick from tariffs from multiple suppliers.

Similarly, someone might want to move to a different network for a short period because their coverage is superior in a certain area.

Roaming is the most obvious area that can be transformed. Apple has done coloured phones before, with the iPhone 5c, but these colours are shimmery aluminium under glass, and they have a rich, enamel-like look to them.

"Dual-SIM support is another feature worldwide markets will appreciate", add analysts from IHS Markit.


The Apple-designed A12 Bionic, the smartest and most powerful chip in a smartphone, features the first 7-nanometer chip ever in a smartphone that delivers industry-leading performance in a more power-efficient design.

A few hours ago, Apple unveiled its updated range f iPhones for 2018.

iPad may also get some attention, with two new and improved models possibly on the schedule.

The analyst expected the line-up to be a hit, pushing up the average selling price of Apple smartphones.

Like the iPhone X, the XS has a 5.8-inch OLED screen, while the XS Max boasts a mammoth 6.5-inch OLED display.

United Kingdom mobile network O2 has announced that it will also be accepting preorders for the Xs and Xs Max from 14 September, with iPhone XR preorders opening on 19 September. That makes the $999 XS the smallest of the new lineup, but not by much.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has long emphasized the watch's health and fitness-tracking capabilities. An exciting phone? Despite all the hyperbole (and duration) of Apple's launch event, perhaps not.
