IPhone Xs and Xs Max hands-on: The new normal

IPhone Xs and Xs Max hands-on: The new normal

Unveiled at the company's Gather Round event in Cupertino, it will be available soon after the also new iPhone XS and XS Max. The price of the SE started at Rs 20,000 for the base version.

Display While competition is now offering nearly near-bezel less screens, Apple isn't promising any such thing with the new line of iPhones.

There's a 12-megapixel camera on this one, too, but no telephoto lens, and its screen is an LCD, not the OLED HDR displays on the XS and XS Max.

The iPhone XS will cost $1,649 and up, while the iPhone XS Max begins at $1,799, available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB, and with the choice of space grey, silver, and a new gold finish.

The Max is the Xs' bigger brother.

The smaller of the two-the Xs-has a 5.8-inch screen, the same size as last year's iPhone X, while the Xs Max has a whopping 6.5-inch screen-the largest of any iPhone to date, by a wide margin. The Series 4 feature the new S4 processor, an electrical heart sensor, and better displays.

Like the iPhone X, they come with Super Retina displays and OLED screens that support Dolby Vision and HDR10, and provide the "best colour accuracy in the industry". And the price? Well, let's just say that it's going to be the most expensive smartphone on the market. The front camera is the same as the iPhone XS with a 7MP f/2.2 TrueDepth camera that also supports Portrait Mode and Animoji.

Alongside the smartphones, Apple showed off its latest iteration in the Watch series, which the company claims has been redesigned from the ground up. Sticking with the premium pricing model they started previous year, the Xs is priced at $1,000, and the Xs Max will set you back $1,100, making it most expensive production iPhone ever. However, customers can also opt for the Apple Watch Series 4 Cellular edition 40mm stainless steel variant along with a Sport Band at Rs. 67,900.

Similar to the iPhone X, the XR gets a notch which also houses the same advance sensors which enable Face ID authentication.

If a person falls, and then is motionless, the watch will call emergency services, he added. It is possible that in India, the Watch Series 4 will be launched in a month or so from now, but the ECG feature will be likely disabled.

With iOS 12's arrival next Monday, September 17, Apple is making some major upgrades to its mobile operating system. It seems like a technology that will be easy to use and will in a significant way improve the lives of its users.

On the Apple Store, the headphone dongle has a rating of one star. You don't have to do a thing to work this magic.

Here's a step by step guide on how you can enjoy the new eSIM function in your device. Want to make sure you only use all social media apps for a maximum of 20 minutes every day?

Apple's strategy of selling pricier phones amid waning demand for smartphones has propelled the Cupertino-based company to become the first publicly traded USA company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion (€860 billion).
