Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

Share

An August 2018 survey by culture website The Pudding took a look at the 20 most popular denim brands in the United States and found that 60 percent of women's jeans can't fit an iPhone X, which is 5.8 inches. The "S" generation of iPhones usually means incremental upgrades in terms of specifications and the new devices are no exception. Now, a similar amount will have to pay for the repairs iPhone XS. In India, the iPhones will support Airtel, and Reliance Jio. The iPhone Xs deal is only applicable on purchase with an installment plan. In the meantime, carriers and third-party sellers are trying to get rid of their iPhone X models with a modest discount: AT&T, for example is selling the iPhone X for $899 right now.

The display of the XS is made up of 2.7 million pixels and boasts a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch.

The new iPhone models are powered by Apple's advanced A12 Bionic processor. Based on 7nm process, Apple A12 processor promises better CPU performance.

Component prices may have lowered in the past year, according to analysts, but Apple's new pricing doesn't reflect that. "There's a lot of software involved with the LCD screen, as it's the first [LCD display] with a notch and full screen". Up front there's a 7-megapixel RGB camera with f/2.2 aperture.

With Apple stubbornly using an outdated design for its Plus models for the past few years the Galaxy Note lineup was largely unchallenged from the iOS side.

The iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max all feature the same 12-megapixel wide-angle lens on the back, and most of the same features, like optical image stabilization, Smart HDR, portrait mode, and more. What's new is that Apple filled out the "forehead" and "chin" area with screen, giving you the whopping 6.5 inches.

Apple officially killed off the Touch ID fingerprint reader.

But the iPhone XR is better still.

For photography, it has a 12-megapixel wide-angle single rear camera with OIS, f/1.8 aperture and True Tone flash. AirPods are still as basic as ever, with no noise cancelation or water resistance.

The three names of the packs include XR Suit, XS Suit and XS Max Set. It starts at $749 with pre-orders going live on October 19 and shipping from October 26.

For last year's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, customers can spend up to Dh300 less.

The original iPhone XS ($999 at Apple) and XS Max originate at $1,000 and rise sharply from there.

One of the most distinct difference are the available color options, with six colorways for the iPhone XR and just three standard color variants for the iPhone XS, but the two most significant differences between these two iPhones are the display and and body frame (or chassis). India availability is yet to be announced, though I fully expect it should be in time for the festive season up ahead.
