The 4 Announcements From Apple's iPhone Event That Actually Matter

Apple on Wednesday unveiled the trio of successors to the iPhone X at its Gather Round event at Steve Jobs Theatre, Cupertino.

The iPhone X comes with a 5.8-inch OLED display while the iPhone XS has 6.5-inch OLED screen - the biggest ever on an iPhone.

The iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina Display.

The cameras are being powered by lots of smart algorithms working under the hood, which also enable a new smart HDR feature as well as the ability to adjust the depth-of-field of a photo after the fact. And some will carry other new features such as two SIMs-microchips that allow smartphone users to connect to a wireless network-making it easier for travelers to use their phones overseas, these people said.

The camera features have at least one 12-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera that supports Face ID unlocking and Animojis, while the XR lacks a second rear camera and uses a software to take artistic portrait-style shots with background blur (called Bokeh).

Nishikori - the first Japanese man to reach a US Open semifinal in the Open era - was a finalist in NY in 2014. We all knew that he had a capacity and a quality to get to the point where he is at the moment.

The phones largely ditch the looks and heritage of the iPhone 8, instead building on last year's iPhone X in terms of looks and features. Its physical size sits somewhere between an iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, only with a much larger screen. There will also be 128GB and 256GB models. "We expect the iPhone XS Max to have exactly the same effect despite its price tag". The iPhone Xr will be available in white, black, blue, coral, yellow and red.

Tech analyst Patrick O'Rourke joined in, tweeting: 'I want to go on the record now as saying that iPhone Xs Max is a bad name for a smartphone...' Preorders start Friday and the phone ships on September 21. As a point of comparison, the regular Xs costs £999 (the same price as last year's iPhone X) and the iPhone XR will start at £749. The Apple Watch Series 4 can also alert a user if their heart rate is low or otherwise abnormal, a sign of a potential health problem. The edges are noticeably rounder, though it still retains the square look.

Display While competition is now offering nearly near-bezel less screens, Apple isn't promising any such thing with the new line of iPhones. It's "Digital Crown" scroll wheel now has haptic feedback by default when navigating through menus, and its speakers now produce 50% more volume than the Watch 3.

These latest models also take advantage of the fastest cellular speeds available today, but on 4G networks, not on 5G. The strategy has been successful, helping Apple's stock gain more than 30% this year and making it the first publicly traded U.S. company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion.

People will be able to buy the Apple Watch Series 4 with Global Positioning System for $399 while the version with cellular connectivity will cost $499.
