Apple debuts biggest iPhone yet, health-oriented watch

  • Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

As for battery life, Apple promises that the new phone will last one and a half hours longer than the iPhone 8 Plus.

The 12-megapixel dual camera system features dual optical image stabilisation with 2x optical zoom, while a new sensor is twice as fast.

The iPhone Xs Max is the largest iPhone in history with an expansive 6.5” AMOLED screen.

Like the other two new iPhone models, the iPhone XR will be available with dual-SIM support in India, using an eSIM, which is offered by Airtel and Jio as of now.

Face ID, the most secure facial authentication system ever in a smartphone, is now even faster.

Video recording now supports stereo audio - finally! - and wider dynamic range. The new iPhones have a maximum storage option of 512GB.

Apple, which announced iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr today, has decreased the starting price of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 and discontinued the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and iPhone X. Apple is expected to unveil its biggest and most expensive iPhone on Wednesday as part of a lineup of three new models aimed at widening the product's appeal amid slowing sales growth. So, physically little has changed, but as they say “true beauty is on the inside”.

Apple says that it's allowing access to the Neural Engine through its CoreML API, and it brought forth the developers of HomeCourt, a real-time basketball tutoring app that benefited from the enhancements in the A12's AI accelerator. The base remains at 64GB and there's a 256GB version too. According to the company, it is the industry's first chipset that works on 7nm process. Apple WatchSeries 4 has a redesigned UI with new complications. The GPU offers 50% higher performance and higher memory bandwidth thanks to lossless compression.


"Anyway, the 5.8" screen has the same resolution as last year's model - 1,125 x 2,436px. It's strictly a two-handed device though unless you want to get to lower-reaches of the display.

Most notoriously, a pre-production model of the iPhone 4 was left in a bar in 2010 and subsequently purchased by and written about by the tech blog Gizmodo. At least one analyst also expects the device to provide an electrocardiogram, or ECG, though, that would likely require Food and Drug Administration approval, and Apple hadn't secured that as of Tuesday.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available in gold, silver, and space gray color options and 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities. Theres no Red (yet).

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

iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, September 14 and in stores beginning Friday, September 21.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR on Wednesday.

And yet one of the key features in the iOS 12 software at the core of the latest handsets (and older iPhones, too), is Screen Time, which is all about helping you and your family tame digital addiction. In the US, that second SIM won't be a physical SIM but rather what's known as an eSIM, which requires carrier support.
