IPhone XR Revealed At Apple Event

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced new iPhone models aimed at widening the product’s appeal amid slowing sales at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino California yesterday

Next up, the iPhone Xr, which as suspected, features a 6.1-inch LCD display.

The iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available in 64-GB, 256-GB, and 512-GB versions.

Colours return to the iPhone lineup, and interestingly, just like the iPhone 5c, it's on the most affordable iPhone of the year. The camera, even better than before, has dual lenses at 12MP with an improved portrait mode making it possible to adjust the level of blur in your photos. But if you are going to buy one of the older phones, especially the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, make sure you verify the health of their batteries and replace them before Apple's deal expires.

The XR is Apple's cheapest new handset, retailing at £749. The Max model looks to be about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, though the screen size is much larger.

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. Wider stereo playback creates a more immersive soundstage.

The display stretches edge-to-edge and is protected by the most durable front glass ever found in a smartphone. Apple has made it IP68 which means that it's water resistant upto 2 meters and 30 minutes.

Apple says that it managed to add all those new features and processing power while improving battery life. For the first time the Neural Engine is open to Core ML, empowering developers to build apps that utiliSe this highly efficient machine learning engine.

The company has also given some options in portrait mode. According to the company, 6-Element lens has been provided in the rear camera which supports 2x optical zoom.

Other photography features of these new iPhones include Smart HDR for better high dynamic range and greater image detail.

New Depth Control allows users to dynamically adjust the depth of field in the Photos app both in real-time preview3 and post-capture to create portraits with a attractive background blur.

Touch ID is dead, long live Face ID.

What happened was that Apple failed to adequately inform iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s users that iOS will throttle the speed of their devices when battery health issues are detected, to prevent shutdowns.

Face ID is the most secure facial authentication system ever in a smartphone.

However, compared to its more expensive counterparts, the new iPhone XR does have some compromises that were made to shrink it down.

Among the changes coming to iOS 12: a Screen Time feature allowing users to monitor how they use their mobile devices, better tools for managing notifications, and the ability to FaceTime with a group of people.
