IPhone XR in 2 minutes: All you need to know

IPhone XR in 2 minutes: All you need to know

Wall Street has embraced Apple's evolution from a consumer hardware company into a more-diversified technology giant with an installed base of 1.3 billion devices supporting a growing roster of digital services. Apple executive Phil Schiller said that the. There are new software camera tricks, too, such as the ability to adjust the blur in bokeh shots after the shot has been captured, and "smart HDR" that uses the A12 chipset to identify shadows during photography in real time to enhance dynamic range.

The iPhone XR is the successor to the iPhone 8, with prices starting at $749 in the US.

The iPhone Xr is also splash and water resistant, with a rating of IP67, and will also come in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and the exclusive (PRODUCT) RED edition, which helps raise awareness and inspire action to fight HIV/AIDS.

The iPhone home button is officially dead. The device kills the 3D touch feature but added some haptic feedback, so the screen vibrates a bit in response to touch. With the XR, Apple manages to take numerous standout features of the iPhone XS and encase them in a candy-coloured shell that costs £250 less.

And Apple didn't stop at one iPhone this year: you'll have to choose between the Xs, the Xs Max (the Xs' bigger brother) and the confusingly named iPhone XR - a cheaper option if you don't fancy dipping into your rainy-day fund.

The iPhone XS comes with a price tag of $999 (roughly Rs. 71,800) for the 64GB variant, $1,149 (roughly Rs. 82,600) for the 256GB variant, and $1,349 (roughly Rs. 97,000) for 512GB. The iPhone 8 starts at $599.




Camera-wise, the iPhone Xr packs a single-lens rear camera - the same wide-angle camera that is installed on the iPhone Xs. Pre-orders will start on October 19th and the phone will hit store shelves on October 26.

Perhaps the best news for Asian customers is that all three new iPhones will have dual SIM support, and it's a superior version than most of the rest of the world is getting.

Apple also showed off an upgrade to its 3-year-old smartwatch.

"The device features a 6.1" "Liquid Retina" all-screen LCD display (with Apple's signature notch), Apple's "most durable" glass to date. Bigger batteries, faster processors, slightly improved cameras, and better displays.

In response, President Trump said there is "an easy solution" to solve the problem, calling for Apple to make its products in the U.S. The company says it's the first EKG available over the counter. If the user is immobile for more than a minute after the notification, the watch can automatically call for help "and send a message along with location to emergency contacts", Apple says.

The Apple Watch, which also has 18-hour all-day battery life (including 6 hours of outdoor workout time), will be available for pre-order on September 14 and go on sale September 21. At the launch, Apple called it a "breakthrough".
