Apple Unveils iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr

Much-anticipated Apple line-up will include a range of smartphones a new mini Mac and accessories. AFP

While the big reveal was Apple's largest phone yet, the 6.5 inch iPhone Xs Max, I was more impressed by the silicon that drives it. The iPhone Xr, a cheaper version also announced on Wednesday, has a starting price of $749.

In comparison, the starting price point for the iPhone Xs is listed at $999 USD, while the Xs Max is just one hundred dollars more, $1,099 USD, both for the 64 GB model.

It will be available to order from 19 October, and will start shipping on 26 October.

The iPhone Xs has the same size 5.8-inch OLED display as the iPhone X, but Apple says the phone's "Super Retina" display packs more pixels and 60 percent greater dynamic range than its predecessor.

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10. It offers an hour and a half more battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus and features haptic touch and Face ID.

There's a new accelerometer and gyroscope inside the Apple Watch Series 4 , too, which can help the device to detect falls. According to Apple, the watch faces are created to interact with the screen with features that bounce off the sides.


T3 will shortly be going hands on with the iPhone Xr, so make sure to check back in to T3.com soon for the complete picture.

The new watch, with a price tag that starts at $399 in the USA and €499 ($580) in Germany, is a more comprehensive health device.

What else does the new iPhone offer?

Instead of a dual camera, the iPhone XR features a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle lens.

And, Schiller said, the XS line-up features 'the most lovely iPhone we've ever made'. It did that with the iPhone X in 2017 and this year it's the iPhone XR which fell into that category. The Max model looks to be about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, though the screen size is much larger.

Steve Yzerman to step down as Lightning GM, report says
As for BriseBois, he's also been with the club since 2010 and has always been speculated to be in line for a GM position. Yzerman said he was "100 percent committed" to the Lightning this season. "We have a plan here".


Apple will no longer include a Lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack adapter with new iPhone purchases.

The next major update to the iOS will be released next Tuesday, followed a week later by a Mac software update. The processor in the new iPhones is more advanced than any rival product, capable of the kind of heavy lifting once consigned exclusively to supercomputers. Still, that "cheap" price will cost you in the long run as far as features are concerned.

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 biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red. Like the iPhone X, the new models contain Apple's Face ID feature, which lets people unlock their smartphones by looking at them. However, the XR loses out on 3D Touch and relies on Taptic Feedback for launching the camera or the flashlight. However, it's early to give a verdict on it but our hunch is that Apple might just have a victor on its hands with the iPhone XR.

Does it still have wireless charging?
