Apple Announces The Apple Watch 4: Fully Custom SiP

Apple Announces The Apple Watch 4: Fully Custom SiP

Just as last year's model, the iPhone Xs once again makes use of Face ID for unlock and authentication, which is why there isn't any fingerprint reader included on the device. Inside it even shares the same brand new A12 Bionic processor found in the new XS and XS Max, and features IP67 waterproofing up to one meter for 20 minutes.

For this post, I'll leave out the iPhone XS Max. Though the headphones got off to a slow start, they have quickly helped Apple capture 26% of the US wireless headphone market, according to NPD Group.

"While it's now the cheapest new iPhone of the lot, the iPhone XR gets a large 6.1" edge to edge display that uses IPS instead of OLED. With the XR, which was until recently rumoured to be the XC, the physical home button on iPhones has now officially been consigned to history.

The XR comes with a 6.1in, 1,792 x 828 resolution display, inside an aluminium casing with a glass front and back.

The phones are updates to last year's iPhone X (10), which was released to mark the 10th anniversary of the smartphone. The 128GB and 256GB iPhone XR costs £799 and £899, respectively. Battery life in the new watch remains at 18 hours, meaning it needs a nightly recharge.

Idlib is home to around 3 million people, around half refugees who fled other parts of Syria following previous regime assaults. Turkey, afraid of hundreds of thousands of new refugees will flow to its borders, already hosts over three million refugees.

With a starting price of £749 for the 64GB iPhone XR doesn't qualify as a budget phone, but it is the cheapest 2018 model iPhone from Apple. For the iPhone Xr, however, you've got white, blue, black, yellow, coral and red (definitely harking back to the days of the colorful iPhone 5c).

The new Apple Watch will start at $399 and be available on September 21.

And technology-lovers will only have a few days to wait before they can pre-order the latest incarnations of the world's most popular phone, with orders being taken from Sept. 14 and shipping for Saudi Arabia and the UAE starting on Sept. 21. iPhone addicts in Oman and Bahrain will have a week longer to wait, with the iPhones arriving in the two countries a week later on Sept. 28.

The XR features numerous same specifications as the XS duo but has only a single rear camera, an LCD screen - unlike the XS' OLED - and starts at £749 when it goes on sale in October. Other products are going to be a big part of this week's story for Apple.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will cost $499 for built-in connectivity and $399 for a standard model. The edges are noticeably rounder, though it still retains the square look. For folks who follow Apple's naming conventions: It's an "S" upgrade, Apple's every-other-year cycle for big new launches. The crown has been improved and now gives haptic feedback, trying to mimick the "clicking wheel" feel such as in more mechanical dials, or more aptly, the clicking of a mouse wheel when you scroll with it. If you're wondering about how to choose between them, look more closely at the camera configuration and device size to see which one you might prefer. 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.
