Got $1100? Apple shows off its most expensive iPhone yet

Despite the discounted option, Telsyte managing director Foad Fadaghi said Australian Apple fans were likely to accept the top iPhone XS Max's significantly higher cost this year, but warned that prices could not keep rising at their current rate. It is expected that Apple will launch three iPhone - iPhone XS, XS Plus and iPhone XC - with screens of 5.8, 6.5 and 6.1 inches, respectively. The iPhone KHS will also be a version with two SIM cards for some countries.

The Max has a larger display than the usual Plus size phones but a similar body.

It is still not known that whether Apple would be unveiling this new laptop besides the new iPhone models on the planned keynote on the 12 of September, but, chances of that are quite thin as this is the first rumour regarding a new laptop announced by Apple which has emerged, and that too this close to the date of the event.

"They have finally added a larger-screen phone so that they can directly compete with the Galaxy Note9 products", Gartner analyst Annette Zimmermann said at the event at Apple's Silicon Valley headquarters, referring to rival Samsung Electronics (005930.KS), which has led the trend towards big-screen phones.

But once it became clear that the iPhone X's flagship successors weren't going to blow us away with any major new features, the device we now know as the iPhone XR started looking like a pretty interesting deal, with its comparatively mid-tier size and moderate price - after Apple really went there and started charging people $1579-plus for a belatedly revamped phone.

Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup is official.

It features a less glamorous-sounding, but surely capable water-resistant aluminium body and a 6.1-inch "liquid retina" LCD display (at 326ppi) - instead of an OLED display like on the iPhone X. Despite the fact that it has an LCD screen and not an OLED, it still features tap to wake and no home button.

The phones have faster networking support.

The iPhone X line also packs augmented reality tools to have more realistic graphics and object reflections. The overall size of the new watches is nearly the same, but it's thinner and the displays occupy more of the Watches' faces. The machine learning capabilities will be nine times faster, but using a tenth of the power as before.

The watch face can now be customized so you can add loved once to watch face and also track lives score. When the wearer trips or slips, the watch will automatically detect the spill and can start an emergency call and send your location if you don't get back up after 1 minute.

"In addition to Face ID support", he writes in a report obtained by MacRumors "we expect the new iPad Pro models' main upgrade to include replacing Lightning with a USB-C interface and bundling with a new unibody design 18W power adapter, which cancels the removable plug design".

Last year, Face ID remained an exclusive for the $1000 iPhone X. The smartphone served its function well, on both fronts.

The company first announced the cable, which allows iPhone and iPad owners to plug-in their device to any USB-C port - including an external battery pack or computer, back in March 2016.

Available in black, white or gold the iPhone XS will be available for pre-order this Friday, September 14, starting at $999 for the 64GB XS and $1099 for the 64GB XS Max.

Still, Apple has faced tight supply of the new low-priced model due to minor complications fitting backlights for the LCD screen, according to people familiar with the matter. The phones go on sale next week, September 21.
