Apple introduces iPhone XR

Adjust Comment Print

Design-wise, the iPhone Xr bears similarities to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max with a 6.1-inch all-screen build, slim bezels and the signature notch which incorporates Face ID and gestural navigation, but for a considerably lower price starting at $749 United States dollars, and available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models.

If confirmed, the 6.5in iPhone XS Max is expected to be the company's most expensive to date, surpassing the £999 iPhone X introduced this time a year ago. Apple's brought back the "S" model, which means this model looks largely the same as the X from a year ago, but the guts of the phone have been beefed up in all the ways you'd expect.

Apple also unveiled the the Apple Watch Series 4, with improved cellular connectivity, larger screen, more powerful processor and a range of additional health-tracking features. Pre-orders start on October and it'll ship on October 26th.

With edge-to-edge displays, improved water resistance, and a camera that can 'carry out a trillion operations on every photo, ' Apple's latest iPhone line-up may be its most impressive yet. The phones, which were accidentally leaked by Apple itself this morning, use surgical grade stainless steel and sport a new gold finish.

The iPhone Xr comes in three storage configurations: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

Yzerman steps down as Bolts GM
He'll reportedly stay in Tampa through this season in an advisory role, while assistant GM Julien BriseBois will take over. The plan is the 41-year-old BriseBois who had been an assistant to Yzerman since they joined the Lightning in 2010.

By making more expensive iPhones, Apple has been able to boost its profits despite waning demand as people upgrade phones less frequently. Mainly because it's a bigger, better, faster version of the iPhone X. Still, we know enough to compare some of the specs, features, missing features, price and release details to help buyers make the right decision.

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

Apple has some new color options for its mainstream iPhone.

The device is powered by A12 Bionic SoC which has a hexa-core CPU, quad-core GPU, and a neural engine, and will deliver 15% faster application processing than last year's A11 chip. The iPhone Xs screen is 5.8 inches. The phone, which costs more than a basic Apple laptop ($1449 in its maxed-out Max configuration), is in many ways becoming a replacement for a laptop - minus the keyboard. It offers an hour and a half more battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus and features haptic touch and Face ID. Except for that little notch at the top for the facial recognition camera, the Max screen runs to the top and bottom edges of the phone.

By the way, the regular iPhone XS with 512GB of storage isn't cheap either: It costs $1,349.

The story with Apple's AirPower charging mat is murkier.
