The new iPhones hit the stage last night and, of course, Apple has a bunch of promotional material to help hype them up.
Both use a new method for taking pictures called "Smart HDR", which essentially takes a bunch of pictures when you press that shutter button and then stitches them into one finished image.
Apple's event comes with the global smartphone market at near-peak saturation, and without a major catalyst for sales ahead of a likely rollout of 5G, or fifth generation, wireless networks, expected in 2019. Even though its thickness got reduced and it offers more performance and features, the new watch is said to maintain the same battery life longevity as its predecessors.
The phones will include the ability to support dual SIM cards, which means people can put two phone numbers or phone plans on the same phone. Apple's Watch Series 4 built-in speaker is now 50 per cent louder, optimized for phone calls, Siri and Walkie-Talkie, and the microphone has been relocated, to reduce echo for better sound quality.
Inside, the XR has the same A12 Bionic processor as the XS and the XS Max, backed by between 64GB and 256GB of storage. Preorders start Friday and the phone ships on September 21. As you can see, however, this deal is only good for a limited time, and only applies to iPhone XS models. The Max has a larger display than the usual Plus size phones but a similar body. Telstra pre-orders will be available fro, 6:01pm AEST on October 19 for shipping on October 26. It's certainly a little bit wider than I'd prefer, but recently I've been using the 3.06-inch-wide OnePlus 6 as my primary phone, and it's fine.
If you want to connect your wired headphones to your shiny new iPhone, you'll now need to pay £9 for a headphone adapter.
"The larger screen will be very important in China to turn around the trend there, because they have lost some share in the last few years, partly because of screen size", she added. The only potential hiccup to a record-breaking quarter is the fact that the iPhone XS won't launch until October.
Also for the first time, because Apple is allowing its stream to be played on other platforms, it will be available on Twitter.
Will Samsung's Galaxy Watch end Apple's smartwatch dominance? A new app will say whether each reading is normal or shows signs of atrial fibrillation, an irregular heart rate that increases the risk of heart complications, such as stroke and heart failure. Well, the pricing starts a lot lower than for the iPhone XS, but the differences between European and USA pricing are still very much there. What's new is that Apple filled out the "forehead" and "chin" area with screen, giving you the whopping 6.5 inches.
