Apple launches iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR

Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone Meet the new iPhones: Here’s all the smartphone news Apple announced today

On Wednesday, Apple announced its latest updates to the iPhone and Apple Watch, adding three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch to its catalog of devices.

The new £1,099 iPhone XS Max houses a 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED display, the largest ever placed on an iPhone, and is joined by the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, the same size as last year's iPhone X.

At $749, the iPhone Xr is $250 cheaper than the iPhone Xs, and $350 cheaper than the iPhone Xs Max, both of which Apple also announced on Wednesday. That's mostly because of the phone's massive display - at 6.5-inches diagonal, this is the biggest screen that Apple has ever squeezed into a smartphone.

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. In iOS 12 (which you can beta-test right now), users will be able to train Siri, stop sites from tracking them, and limit how much time they spend in apps. Both new phones cram the same number of pixels into each inch as the display on the original iPhone X.

Unfortunately, there's no 3D Touch but Apple is replacing it with Haptic Touch that claims to offer a similar feedback as their MacBook Pro trackpads.

Thanks to the larger display, there's a new watch face that features up to eight complications that can be customized.

Confirmed: OnePlus 6T has abandoned the headphone port. Here's why
Speaking to TechRadar , Pei did not actually reference the OnePlus 6T directly - just the "next OnePlus handset". The Giztop listing suggests that the OnePlus 6T will sport 3500mAh battery with VOOC fast charging support.

The New $1,449 iPhone Won't Include A Free Headphone Dongle
Now, the operator won't sell you the handset itself, and the $400 markdown actually represents a combined 24 monthly bill credits. The iPhone Xs and iPhone XR come with NFC with reader mode functionality just like previous iPhones from Apple .

Supermarkets cited in crackdown on e-cigarettes
E-cigs deliver lower toxin levels than regular cigarettes, but users can inhale more of the addictive stimulant nicotine . The FDA discovered that top-selling brands like JUUL, Vuse, MarkTen XL, blu e-cigs, and Logic were popular among minors.

The iPhone Xs Max, pronounced like "tennis max", might just as well be read as "excess max".

iPhone XR is the so-called "budget" iPhone.

iPhone Xs starts at $999 for a 64-gigabyte model, the iPhone Xs Max starts at $1099. It starts at $1229, with preorders available October 19 for shipping on October 26.

So if you do want to connect your standard wired headphones, you'll need to pay £9 for the adapter. The new Apple Watch is built with wax ceramic and sapphire glass, which should make for better signal reception. And it says a lot about our era of digital binging that Apple will probably sell them like hot cakes. If a fall is detected and the person remains immobile for more than a minute, the device automatically calls their emergency contact.

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10.

The watch will also notify you when it detects that your heart rate is too low or that there's an irregular pattern compared to your usual values. Well, the pricing starts a lot lower than for the iPhone XS, but the differences between European and USA pricing are still very much there.
