While most of us were enjoying our recommended hours of sleep last night, Apple announced three new additions to their iPhone lineup - their latest, greatest, and verily, expensivest pieces of smartphones that fanboys will sell their firstborn for.
Apple has launched the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR, and the biggest ever iPhone, the iPhone XS Max, giving substance to earlier speculative reports. Naturally, the jokes about buying an iPhone with a kidney were back and so were the jokes about its chargers.
Another new feature that has been introduced to Series 4 is the ability to detect a fall. With Bollywood memes and dash of desi humour, these relatable jokes have left everyone ROFL-ing. One other perk: The iPhone XR will be available in a variety of colors including black, red, white, blue, coral and yellow. In India, the iPhone XR will be available slightly late on October 26. A meditation app will also work directly on the watch face, moving through breathing exercises without the need to open an app. Apple promises "wider stereo" on the Xs Max. Instead of the impressive IP68 dust and water resistance rating that the XS range has, the iPhone XR will only have IP67, which is an worldwide scale judging how water or dust resistant something is.
That price point makes it less expensive than the iPhone 8 Plus; its affordable price combined with state-of-the-art technology is something the company is "very proud" of.
Jeff Bezos says Trump is wrong to 'demonize the media'
Within this, the Day 1 Families Fund will support existing non-profits that offer shelter and food to young homeless families. The Bezos Day One Fund will focus on two initiatives, the billionaire announced in an online post Thursday.
The phones come with a 12-megapixel dual camera, and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, and can last up to 30 minutes in water up to two meters deep.
Despite the discounted option, Telsyte managing director Foad Fadaghi said Australian Apple fans were likely to accept the top iPhone XS Max's significantly higher cost this year, but warned that prices could not keep rising at their current rate.
But the arrival of the iPhone Xs and Xr phones reminds us that the deal will soon expire, and prices will go up after December 31st. Portrait Lighting is also supported but it's limited to just 3 effects - Natural, Studio and Contour. However, there's only one physical SIM, while the other is an eSIM. Apple says the camera along with smarter AI-based algorithms can deliver better imaging capabilities than the iPhone 8.
Next up, the iPhone Xr, which as suspected, features a 6.1-inch LCD display.
iPhone XR will be available with 64GB, 128GB, 256GB of storage memory and run on Apple's iOS 12 operating system.
