Here’s When Apple Watch 4 Pre-Orders Start

Here’s When Apple Watch 4 Pre-Orders Start

The move could widen the potential viewership of the event, which will kick off at 3am AEST, by breaking with a longstanding tradition of only allowing viewers to tune in via the company's website. The bigger model, likely to be called the iPhone Xs Max, will excite people looking for one device able to satisfy most of their computing needs, while the cheaper one will bring the iPhone X's edge-to-edge screen and facial recognition features to more people.

The country is one of the world's most expensive places to buy Apple devices, with increased tariffs pushing the price of an iPhone X to $1,700 earlier this year.

Minutes before Apple is set to kick off it's biggest hardware event of the year, Apple CEO Tim Cook appears to be missing something very important.

Most of the buzz is swirling around a rumored iPhone that is supposed to boast a 6.5-inch screen, up from 5.8 inches on the existing iPhone X.

Apple past year began manufacturing some lower-end devices at a plant in Bangalore to avoid hefty import duties, but its top models like the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 are still shipped in from overseas.

This even-bigger iPhone, which will be available on September 21 - with orders open the week before - represents Apple's attempt to feed consumers' appetite for increasingly larger screens as they rely on smartphones to watch and record video, as well as take photos wherever they are.


The new iPhones have more powerful processors and cameras, and a dual-SIM card feature for top-of-the-line devices. The new display has been termed as Liquid Retina (instead of the Super Retina that we saw on iPhone XS models) and spans over 6.1 inches.

"The biggest risk for Apple in the future is the current China-US conflict", Jia said, adding that tariffs on components could drive its prices even higher. Leaked images show more complications on the face than ever before. It'll cost roughly $750 and come out on October 26. Powering the XR's are the new Apple A12 Bionic chipset, which uses a Hexa Core CPU, a Quad Core GPU and an Octa-core Neural Engine. Reports were also doing the round that Apple was working on a non-Beats branded pair of over-ear noise-cancelling headphones.

Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB capacity models in space grey, silver and a new gold finish starting at Rs 99,900 and Rs 109,900 MRP, respectively, through Apple Authorised Resellers.

A new Apple Watch and software with advanced heart-monitoring capabilities could boost the detection of abnormal heartbeats in millions of people, but it could also raise the chance of false positives, a cardiologist and researcher says.

Philip W. Schiller, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing of Apple, speaks about the new Apple iPhone XR at an Apple Inc product launch event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California.

Apple is about to ship its 2 billionth iOS device. One example is using a press to directly launch the camera, reducing the amount of time needed to access an app. As per the company, the Mac system needs to run macOS Sierra 10.12 or later to get the best experience. Cameras have also been calibrated for low light, and Apple mentioned that the GPU renderings have also been made more realistic. This model will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB options starting at $749 Dollars. If you hit like on the Tweet below, Apple will send you live updates for the Twitter stream.
