Apple sticks to higher prices for iPhones in Europe

The iPhone XR, the handset most people will want to buy this year, will be about a month late to the party.

Other than the larger screen on the Xs Max, there aren't many new features on the new pair of phones that you wouldn't also find on last year's model.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled updated versions of its priciest iPhones along with a new smartwatch that allows users to take their own electrocardiograms, as the USA tech giant looks to boost its momentum in a sputtering market.

It claims the iPhone XS runs for half an hour longer than last year's X, while the XS Max lasts an additional 1.5 hours. From our experience, the iPhone 8 Plus can last longer than the iPhone X on a single charge, so the iPhone XR could be the best model for battery life.

The company has been affected by leaks in the past.

The tech giant will live-stream its event on the social media platform for the first time on Wednesday as it looks to draw in a larger audience.

Apple on September 12 announced the follow-up to the 2017 flagship iPhone X with the newest iPhone XS, XS Max and the "budget" iPhone XR. The A12 Bionic processor that powers the iPhone is supposedly the real scene stealer. The iPhone Xr will be available in white, black, blue, coral, yellow and red.

Mheymid, who has five children, said people fled in the hundreds, some bringing only blankets and kitchen supplies. The civil war has claimed some 350,000 lives since 2011.

The tricky part about getting a feel for these new phones is that most of what makes them really important is happening under the hood. Instead, it has an LCD screen. Countries like the United Kingdom and USA will have access to the phone one week earlier as it rolls out on September 21st.

The watches will be available on September 21st, with orders opening September 14th. Other than the option of acquiring the device in gold, the phone looks largely identical to its predecessor, but features the now-standard array of internal improvements, including a better camera, faster processor, and more internal storage, with an upper limit of 512GB.

There is a notch for the front-facing camera, and just like the iPhone Xs, and the X before it, the Xr also uses Face ID for unlock and authentication.

If you need a brand new iPhone but not willing to spend more than RM4,000, Apple has also announced a cheaper version that's called the iPhone XR. In iOS 12 (which you can beta-test right now), users will be able to train Siri, stop sites from tracking them, and limit how much time they spend in apps.

And in the spirit of everything-but-the-kitchen sink, analysts tracking Apple's supply chain also say the company is also working on bringing facial-recognition technology to a new line of iPads and a lower-priced MacBook.

The new series has been approved by FDA for ECG recording as well but this feature would be limited to only US-based users initially.
