Apple Introduces $749 6.1-inch iPhone Xr

14 September 2018, 05:25 | Casey Mitchell

The "budget" answer to Apple's top-of-the-range iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR - will start at a cool $749 (£749), and comes in three different storage sizes: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

In the United Kingdom, the iPhone XS costs £999, £1,149 or £1,349, depending on the capacity, while the iPhone XS Max costs £1,099, £1,249 or £1,449.

The biggest difference between the XR and the XS is the display - instead of an OLED panel, the XR is relying on an LCD panel.

That was an important part of Apple's 2017 presentation: the AirPower was about supporting a key differentiating feature of the company's mobile devices together: no other brand could claim to offer a phone, wearable, and audio gear that all charge without requiring separate proprietary connectors. Last year's iPhone X - pronounced "ten" - represented a major redesign. All of this unlocks new experiences for games, photography, video editing and graphics-intensive apps while still offering great battery life.

The Final Remnant Remastered Will Value the Game's PS4 Debut
That's an interesting little twist, because The Last Remnant originally launched as an Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2008. The Last Remnant Remastered is scheduled to release on December 6th digitally on the Playstation Store for $19.99.

This is why eSIM support in the iPhone XS and XS Max is so significant.

Since the Apple Watch launched in April 2015, most people haven't figured out why they need to buy one. There's no home button on any of them - love it or hate it, Apple is putting the fingerprint reader permanently out to pasture. Schiller called it the "smartest and most powerful chip ever in a smartphone".

Other features and specs of the phone include IP67 water resistance, the new A12 Bionic chip, Face ID, LTE Advanced, Dual SIM, and iOS 12.

Alright, you might say, but what about the "cheap" iPhone XR?

Hurricane Florence: Storm force winds for North Carolina within hours
The Port of Virginia in Hampton Roads was closed Wednesday but planned to reopen Thursday on news that Florence had veered south. Subtropical Storm Joyce , which formed in the North Atlantic Tuesday, is also not expected to hit the U.S.

It will be available to order from 19 October, and will start shipping on 26 October. It will come in Silver, Gold, Space Gray, Polished Space Black, and a new Gold Stainless color. According to 9to5Mac, the product page for last year's iPhone X mentioned AirPower and a release date of 2018. The XS will start from $999 in the U.S. and €1,149 ($1,226) in Germany.

Apple revealed its three new iPhones on September in an event at the Steve Jobs Theater in its Apple Park HQ.

The new watch, with a price tag that starts at $399 in the U.S. and €499 ($580) in Germany, is a more comprehensive health device. The edges are noticeably rounder, though it still retains the square look. Overall I found the new Apple Watch 4 a lot more attractive than its predecessors - though it's still a quite steep price point. The crown has been improved and now gives haptic feedback, trying to mimick the "clicking wheel" feel such as in more mechanical dials, or more aptly, the clicking of a mouse wheel when you scroll with it.

In its fourth incarnation, called Series 4 and due out later this month, the Apple Watch will add features that allow it to take high-quality heart readings and detect falls. The Watch Series 4 is still good for 18 hours of everyday use or workout tracking for a solid six hours.
