Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

Apple announced their new Series 4 Apple Watch in the Gather Around event yesterday and the new smartwatch comes with significant changes and additions like a 30% bigger screen as compared to the previous generation of Apple Watch, a new edge-to-edge curved display, ECG and more.

Indian users have always been demanding dual sim in the iPhone.

The iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr are all variations on the iPhone X. The Xs is the same size, the Xs Max is larger and the Xr is larger than the original, but has a lower quality LCD screen than the OLED screens on the other options.

The biggest of the bunch is the iPhone Xs Max - the largest iPhone yet.

"When asked if they agreed with the statement "I would have paid even more for an iPhone X with a larger screen size had it been available" only five per cent strongly agreed and another 14 per cent said they somewhat agreed", she said. It has a new dual-core 64-bit processor with 18-hour battery life, six-hour outdoor workout life. It is more efficient, and up to 15 percent more faster. The A12 GPU is 50 percent faster than A11 - it can do 5 trillion operations per second.

The camera has been improved as well. The camera has OIS, and an f1/.8 aperture, with the true tone flash. There's also an f/2.2 7mp front camera. In video mode, the iPhone Xs and Xs Max can record stereo sound.

Like the previous Apple Watch, battery life is claimed to be 18 hours, but a charge should last longer for workouts and running than before: 6 hours with Global Positioning System.

But here's the thing: While everyone else gets dual SIM capability via a single physical nano SIM combined with a digital eSIM, China gets something unique.

It comes as no surprise that Apple builds on last year's iPhone X to create an updated "S" version, as it does every alternate year. And it's actually R750 less than Apple charged for the iPhone 8 Plus previous year.

This applies to all the iPhone that are part of the 2018 lineup, including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.

The iPhone XS comes with a price tag of $999 for the 64GB variant, $1,149 for the 256GB variant, and $1,349 for 512GB.

Preorders for Apple Watch Series 4 begin on Friday, with units expected to ship on September 21. Instead of using stainless steel like the iPhone X and XS, the XR uses 7000 series aluminium for its metal frame. For more info, head over to Apple.

The iPhone XR, on the other hand, gets a 6.1-inch screen with Liquid Retina HD display.
