Apple's New Lineup: iPhone XS, XS Max and (Slightly) Cheaper XR

13 September 2018, 07:44 | Casey Mitchell

Soon after announcing the new iPhone XR and XS models at its press event on Wednesday, Apple showed off its current lineup of iPhones.

Most analysts predicted the eventual end of the home button after last year's keynote when Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said FaceID would be the "future of how we unlock our smartphones and protect our sensitive information".

Another part of the answer is the Apple Watch. There aren't many differences between the two models: the screen is Apple's biggest ever at 6.5in, the display resolution is higher (2,688 x 1,242), the battery is slightly larger - presumably to accommodate that massive screen - and naturally, it's more expensive.

Apple's answer to Alexa is getting a couple touch-up with Apple announcing HomePod users should be able to set multiple timers, make and receive phone calls, search for songs by lyrics and get assistance in locating stole or lost phones by September 17th. The lack of those niceties, coupled with a $749 price point, means deciding which iPhone you really want is a bit more complicated than before. On the top of the device is a notch which houses the front camera and the Face ID.

The company is expected to unveil a new Apple Watch that comes closer to an edge-to-edge display and offers new fitness features, analysts say.

New Camera Features. The cameras on the XS and XS Max have pretty much the same specs as those of the departing iPhone X. There are dual 12MP rear cameras, along with a 7MP front, or selfie, camera.

The Apple Watch is getting some big upgrades.

Faster Processor. All three phones will feature Apple's A12 Bionic chip, which the company promises will speed up operations while also reducing power consumption. While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display. The cheapest version of the iPhone Xs with the most limited amount of storage (64 GB) will cost $999, while the Xs Max's base price starts at $1,099.

A year removed from last year's 10th anniversary celebration-the first to be held at Steve Jobs Theater on the company's new campus-look for Apple to get back to basics. There will also be 128GB and 256GB models.

The iPhone X only launched last November.

Players can collect, modify and drive over 450 cars, and race, stunt, create or simply explore the game's open-world environment. Forza Horizon 4 releases on September 28 with the Ultimate Edition, and October 2 for the standard edition.

The phone has a new display called a liquid retina display.

That brings me to pricing, a real issue when it comes to the iPhone XR.

The single-lense camera supports portrait mode, Smart HDR, and dynamic depth of field, just like the Xs and Xs Max.

Well, both the Xs and Xs Max will launch on 21 September, with preorders starting on 14 September.
