Apple launches iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR

Apple to enable the eSIM chip on the 2018 iPhone models with a future iOS 12 update

(A software upgrade called iOS 12 coming to older iPhones Sept. 17 will give parents new tools to monitor their children's online habits, not to mention their own.) But Apple's iPhone event sent a different message: more, more, more.

While it appears that Apple is cutting corners with the display, the iPhone XR is packing similar top notch hardware as the iPhone XS. Manufacturers and logistics firms also stand to benefit, as connected devices with embedded eSIMS can be produced in one region, and then easily shipped and tracked across in the world, giving them access to wider global markets. There's no home button on any of them - love it or hate it, Apple is putting the fingerprint reader permanently out to pasture. Williams said the new Apple Watch could help detect atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat), although he hedged that it won't "catch every instance".

With the added feature, photographers can change how crisply a photo's background is displayed, so that they can better emphasize the picture's subject. Customers can adjust the depth of field after they take the picture. Instead we'll compare the iPhone XS and XR. "The smartphone's base model starts at $749, and comes in six surprisingly vibrant colors - white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and the oddly-named "(PRODUCT) RED".

The iPhone XS features a 5.8-inch OLED display with 2,436 x 1,125 resolution and 458 pixels per inch.

Both the Xs and Xs Max come with a dual camera setup, featuring a 12mp wide-angle lens and a 12mp telephoto lens on the rear, and a 7mp RGB camera, paired with an IR camera on the front.

More than a thousand flights canceled in advance of Hurricane Florence
The Hurricane Center reported heavy rain bands with tropical-storm-force winds had arrived in the North Carolina Outer Banks. He said that the hurricane could only be captured on a super-wide lens, even from 400 kilometres up.

An iPhone XS Max with 512 GB of storage will be the most expensive iPhone ever.

The analyst expected the line-up to be a hit, pushing up the average selling price of Apple smartphones.

The iPhone XS gets less batter life than the cheaper XR: 20 hours talkative vs. 25 hours.

The Series Four will start at $599.

The watches will be available on September 21st, with orders opening September 14th. At the same time Apple also refreshed its Apple Watch range and tweaked its HomePod smart speaker, but nobody seems to care.

Moment debuts first-ever MFi certified wireless battery case for iPhone
The iPhone 6s and its larger sister phone, the iPhone 6s Plus, were released in 2015, making them 3-year-old phones at this point. So just remember, as we all empty our wallets to get our hands on Apple's shiny newest handsets ... we're the lucky ones.

Apple has officially unveiled the Apple Watch Series 4. Inside it even shares the same brand new A12 Bionic processor found in the new XS and XS Max, and features IP67 waterproofing up to one meter for 20 minutes. It's "Digital Crown" scroll wheel now has haptic feedback by default when navigating through menus, and its speakers now produce 50% more volume than the Watch 3.

The feature is available immediately worldwide and will turn on automatically for users 65 and over. Also once again missing, just like on many other phones these days: a headphone jack.

"This is the first ECG product offered over the counter directly to consumers", Williams said. The company also reiterated that it's now completely powered by clean energy.

This does beg the question of whether anyone with an Apple Watch will be able to chat to anyone else with the gadget.

Apple likes surprises, but don't expect the first Apple auto to rise from the floor of the Steve Jobs Theater.
