What Time Is The Apple Event 2018 Livestream?

Share

Apart from unveiling the latest iPhone Xs range and the iPhone Xr, Apple also announced its next generation smartwatch, the Apple Watch 4. These include the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and a more affordable successor to the iPhone 8 called the iPhone Xr.

This means that the new-generation iPhones aren't exactly new designs, but come with updated features instead. We have the details on buying an unlocked iPhone XS Max SIM-free handset here - probably best to sit down for a few minutes. Both the new iPhones will be succeeding the existing iPhone X. But that's about R4,000 less than the starting price for the XS, and XR comes with a bigger screen.

The biggest news for most smartphone users was the announcement of the new phone's dual-Sim capability, meaning users will have access to two phone numbers on the same iPhone at the same time.

The dual 12-megapixel rear cameras on the new iPhone XS models will let users alter background blur on images after they've captured them for the first time, and deploy a mode called Smart HDR that would use artificial intelligence to identify scenes or even users' eyes.

These upgrades apply to the front camera too, so your selfies can look like they were taken by a professional photographer.

Apple has given the A12 bionic processor in both of these smartphones, which is a six-core chipset. It is more efficient, and up to 15 percent more faster.

Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) starts at $519 (CAD) and Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS + Cellular) starts at $649.

And while they may not be as radical a change as the iPhone X was previous year (or bring back highly requested features like normal headphone jacks) these new iPhones do present their own unique improvements. Apple also announced that watchOS 5 will start rolling out to supported devices on September 17. The smartphone features a 12-megapixel f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens on the back. This feature is expected to come in India.

The iPhone XR has debuted with a 6.1in screen and a brand new all-screen liquid retina display ("the most colour accurate in the industry") along with an all-new advanced single camera system. Apple first introduced the new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, which are the successors to the iPhone X.

The Apple Watch series 4 will be available for pre-order this Friday, and you'll be able to get it starting next Friday, September 21.

"iPhone XS is not one, but two new iPhone models, and iPhone XS Max offers the biggest display ever in an iPhone with the biggest battery ever in an iPhone, delivering up to an hour and a half more battery life in your day".

The new iPhone comes with a massive internal storage of 512 GB (can store upto 2,00,000 photos).
