Apple pushes largest screens, cheaper models with new iPhones

01 iphone india FILE

Apple bills the iPhone XR as "the iPhone X experience in an LCD display". The phones come in three colors: silver, space gray and gold. You might as well be using a flip phone.

A larger version of last year's iPhone X with a almost 6.5-inch screen.

While the 6.1-inch display seems large, with the reduced bezels above and below the display the phone will be slightly smaller than a traditional "Plus" iPhone and only slightly larger than the 5.8-inch iPhone XS. The new display sizes will come in 40mm and 44mm sizes, increasing 2mm compared to the previous generation.

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.

PhoneArena also has images showing what it thinks all three models will look like.

There are some new tools to monitor how much time you spend looking at your phone and some tweaks to how notifications display. Analysts were targeting a price of $US1049 ($1463) or $US1099 versus the current $US999 base price for the iPhone X. A $699 version is unlikely and wouldn't be good for earnings, Hall added.

Trump warns further China tariffs 'ready to go'
Trade Representative's office continues to "run their process", White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said on Friday. Apple , in the letter it sent to the USTR, did not give an estimate as to the amount the tariffs would increase costs.

The sequel to the last year's iPhone X is likely to be the iPhone XS with a 5.8-inch OLED screen and its price could be $899.

New MacBooks or MacBook Airs - these have been rumored for years and we still haven't seen them. The latter feature has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the company said.

If you've got an Apple TV, you can install the Apple Events app, which lets you watch everything easily. With the introduction of iPhones ditching the Apple-made feature of 3D Touch, it could spell the death of one of Apple's most promising features, even if no one really uses it. That file has since been pulled, with a message that the Apple Store is busy making updates.

Apple had 17 percent of the smartwatch market in the second quarter of 2018 with 4.7 million units shipped, beating out second place Xiaomi Corp.by half a million units and Fitbit Inc.by 2 million, according to data from IDC.

Apple also touted the iPhone's durability, saying the front and back glass design is tougher than any other smartphone and is more resistant to scratches.

Apple says the new watch will be able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call if it detects that a user has fallen down. In terms of feature fragmentation, Apple had been doing what Google couldn't when it came to ensuring almost every device had the same (or comparable) hardware.
