On Wednesday, the tech giant finally unveiled a set of three new iPhones that will surely delight Apple lovers everywhere. Though the phones look identical to the iPhones of the past, they come with a few new changes.
iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max (read, "ten S" and "ten S Max") carry on the all-screen design of iPhone X, and also continues down the route of "no home buttons". Both versions come in gold, space grey, or silver finishes. The devices are made of surgical grade steel (in case you decide to remove an organ or something?) and the "most durable glass ever in a smartphone", likely Gorilla Glass 6.
'Apple's new phone's name is iphone XS which like every other iphone would be EXCESSively overpriced, ' @Bhavessshh tweeted. Apple is calling this "Super Retina".
With iOS 12's arrival next Monday, September 17, Apple is making some major upgrades to its mobile operating system. Apple has discontinued all of its phones that use headphone jacks, and it's no longer including a lightning dongle in the box with phones to allow you to use a traditional headset.
This means it can be submerged up to 1 metre for a duration of up to 30 minutes.
Instead of a dual camera, the iPhone XR features a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle lens. There is an improved TrueTone quad-LED flash as well.
The real improvement, however, is how its Apple-designed image signal processor (ISP) works. The UI has been optimised for the larger 40- and 44mm OLED displays. If you want the very best camera and display, go for the XS.
Your friend teasing you with is big Galaxy Note 9 will have to shut up now as the screen on the iPhone XS Max is 0.1-inch bigger, but don't be too loud about it. Most folks keeping tabs on the brand were expecting updated AirPods, and at least some mention of the AirPower wireless charging mat that was previewed past year.More news: Unai Emery reveals the truth behind relationship with Mesut Ozil
The chip also contains a "next-generation" Neural Engine that aims to bring the power of machine learning to photo editing and augmented reality apps. It can handle 5 trillion operations each second.
Not only is the iPhone XS Max the biggest iPhone ever, it's also the most expensive. You will also have the option to switch between phone numbers before placing a call or sending a text. The 64GB and 256GB iPhone X cost £999 and £1,149, respectively.
The iPhone XS and XS Max will be available to pre-order on Friday September 14, and ship Friday September 21 in the U.S. and other countries.
Customers will be able to pre-order the new iPhone series from Friday, 14 September, and purchase in stores from 21 September.
If you're using a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 or older, would you consider getting the iPhone XR? 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.
To differentiate itself from the iPhone XS series, the XR gets the iPhone 5C treatment with a choice of six colours, namely Blue, White, Black, Yellow, Coral and Red.
The company placed a big bet on the iPhone X, a $999 device that arrived one year ago. And it has the same A12 Bionic processor inside, so will support all the same new features.
Battery life is claimed to last up to an hour and half longer per day than the iPhone 8 Plus.
