AppleInsider talks about, and breaks down everything you need to know about Apple's "Gather round" event and the imminent releases of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, and Series 4 Apple Watch. This time, Apple won't ship any 3.5mm to lightning dongle align with the device. If you wanted to get your hands there on a 512GB iPhone XS Max, which starts shipping September 21, you'd have to fork over - nearly $2,000.
Apple Inc presented the new Apple Watch Series 4 able to take an electrocardiogram to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down.
If you're clinging to wired headphones, you might not like what Apple's doing with its new iPhones. Regardless of which iPhone you choose, you'll end up paying more than ever.
Specs: It is the cheapest device that has been launched yesterday. iPhone XR packs a 6.1 inch LCD display with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels. That's up $50 from last year's $699 for the iPhone 8, itself a bump from 2016. It was smaller and more lightweight than other iPhones, too, still sporting the well-regarded iPhone 5 design. In Japan, the iPhone XS costs equivalent to $1,008, just a smidgen above USA pricing, excluding tax.
Until it was killed off on Wednesday, the iPhone SE had been a rare budget-conscious device from Apple, priced at $US350.
The cheapest iPhone is now the iPhone 7, which starts at $US449. The iPhone XS Max sets a new high price level. Buyers can head to offline Apple stores to directly buy the new devices from September 21st.
Not all of Apple's phone launches have gone smoothly.
Apple debuted the 6S in late 2015 and the device quickly gained in popularity. Apple already quietly discontinued the Series 2 previous year.
Apple, which became the US' first trillion-dollar company in August, has been soaring over the past few years, largely thanks to the success of the iPhone. Apple sold 41.3 million iPhones in its most recent quarter, almost flat compared to the previous year's 41.03 million but better than some analysts expected.
Users who have an iPhone 6, 6S, 5S or SE can still install Apple's latest software update, iOS 12, which is due to arrive on September 17th. In the fiscal third quarter that ended in June, the average selling price of its iPhones climbed to $724 from $606 a year ago.
In a departure from its regular strategy, Apple no longer will sell its year-old phone, the iPhone X, now that its XS and XS Max are available.
