Apple September 12 event wrap-up: new iPhones, Apple Watch, and more

Apple September 12 event wrap-up: new iPhones, Apple Watch, and more

The strategy has been successful, helping Apple's stock to rise more than 30 percent this year and making it the first publicly traded US company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion. There was also a cheaper device, the iPhone XR, which is a follow-up to the iPhone8.

Apple - like Google, Samsung and other big tech companies - has lately been talking up a newfound interest in digital health and limiting excess screen time.

Made from aerospace grade aluminium and with an edge to edge LCD screen, dubbed the Liquid Retina display, the 6.1-inch handset is actually considerably smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus in the hand.

Apple will no longer include a Lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack adapter with new iPhone purchases. The lack of those niceties, coupled with a $749 price point, means deciding which iPhone you really want is a bit more complicated than before.

New Camera Features. The cameras on the XS and XS Max have pretty much the same specs as those of the departing iPhone X. There are dual 12MP rear cameras, along with a 7MP front, or selfie, camera.

The cameras on the phones are, as usual, "better than ever before", said Apple exec Phil Schiller, who has uttered the same words at previous events.

All three devices also come with a more powerful "A12 Bionic" processor which allows developers to build more sophisticated video games, augmented reality experiences and other apps with real-time features that couldn't previously run on a mobile device. The iPhone Xs screen measures 5.8-inches, just like the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display.

Lloris was charged with a single count of drink driving and appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning. The Spurs goalkeeper provided a sample containing 80 micrograms of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

Core ML is now 9 times faster, and uses 1/10 the power compared to the iPhone X.

The company is also launching a lower-cost 6.1inch version, the iPhone XR. Apple's brought back the "S" model, which means this model looks largely the same as the X from past year, but the guts of the phone have been beefed up in all the ways you'd expect.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max keep the iPhone X thin-bezel body style with display notch for front-facing cameras and sensors. But, as rumoured beforehand, it will be more affordable than the premium models.

Apple's newest phones feature faster processors and better memory capacities than their predecessor.

Apple Inc is expected to blast further past the $1,000 price barrier when it launches new iPhones on September 12, but Wall Street is most intrigued by how deep into its larger-than-ever lineup prices hikes may go.

The XS model will set you back $1,629 for the 64GB model and $2,199 for the 512GB.

Apple revealed its new iOS 12 will be available to download on September 17 as long as you got a device newer than an iPhone 5.
