IPhone XR: Everything you need to know!

  • Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

And, Schiller said, the XS line-up features 'the most attractive iPhone we've ever made'.

Both also get IP68 dust and water protection ratings, so they are waterproof up to a maximum depth of 2 metres for as much as 30 minutes.

In my brief hands-on time, the XS Max, indeed, feels large. It's a weighty device at 208 grams but feels surprisingly lighter in hand. Apple says you'll get a half-hour more on the XS compared to the X and 90 minutes more for the XS Max. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max also get a new Gold colour option, apart from Space Grey and Silver.

As expected, the company revealed three new iPhones: the iPhone XS, the XR and the XS Max.

Unlike the now-discontinued iPhone X as well as this year's iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max which pack OLED displays, the iPhone XR features an LCD screen, similar to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as all other iPhone models before them. The sensor is the same found on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max. There's still a notch on top but with a bigger screen, you at least have some more area to left and right of the notch. The LCD iPhone XR will be available at Rs 76,900 in India.

The chip also contains a "next-generation" Neural Engine that aims to bring the power of machine learning to photo editing and augmented reality apps. We tried the new Bethesda game Blade game and it looked visually very appealing - although we did notice some stuttering as we flicked around the gameplay settings.

The rear-facing camera on the iPhone XS and XS Max have a f/1.8 wide-angle lens and f/2.4 telephoto lens.

And Florence remained capable of unleashing rain-fueled catastrophic flooding of rivers and low-lying areas across a wide region. Utility officials have warned that widespread power outages are likely and that it could take weeks to restore electricity .

If the speculation pans out, the even-bigger iPhone would represent Apple's attempt to feed consumers' appetite for increasingly bigger screens as they rely on smartphones to watch and record video, as well as take photos wherever they are.

The new Apple Watch 4 will come in 40mm and 44mm screen sizes and will be offered in a choice of three aluminium finishes. Though the company didn't specify what exactly that means, it did say the XR will last "up to" an hour and a half longer than the iPhone 8 Plus on a single charge.

We'll let you know how it feels when we review the phone.

Apple claims the XR will boast "all-day" battery life. If you live in Melbourne, Australia, you'll need to stay up late or wake up early if you want to install iOS 12 right when it's released. iOS software typically drop in Australia at 3AM. The TrueDepth camera system uses precision depth-sensing technology that goes far beyond the capabilities and security of two-dimensional facial scanners and enables users to unlock iPhone, use Apple Pay, gain access to secure apps and many more features with a simple glance. The pixel density is the same for both devices at 458ppi for both displays.

Others pointed out that it was a missed opportunity, arguing that the firm should have called its XS Max - which has the biggest iPhone display yet - the iPhone XL.

Rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has a few models that cost almost as much as Apple models, but the bulk of its lineup, like that of other phone makers, consists of cheaper models.

The all new iPhone Xs will be priced similar to the iPhone X, and will cost you $999 for the base variant.
