Apple to reveal new iPhones and Apple Watch

In addition to the new premium XS line, the more colorful XR looks to bring the iPhone X design to a cheaper price point. Qualcomm announced that customers have 7nm sampled to customers and you can see that customers like Oppo, Vivo, and Xiaomi showcased their 5G phones.

Apple wants us to "gather round" for this event, and as usual plenty of attention is going to be paid to the individuals who are called upon to go on stage and announce the company's newest products.

At its annual September event, Apple introduced three new iPhone models the iPhone XS (pronounced "ten-ess" not "ex-ess"), iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR (pronounced "ten-are" not "ex-are").

"Don't expect massively disruptive new features but smart pricing repositioning around an enhanced iPhone X, enabling Apple to increase the overall average selling price of its smartphone lineup", said Forrester analyst Thomas Husson. While the new Watch models are thinner, Apple says they also have larger screens, providing displays that are over 30 percent larger than those of the Series 3.

Both modes are said to come with batteries that (slightly) improve on the iPhone X stamina.

Both phones will have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras as well as a 7-megapixel front sensor. While the resolution, sadly, remains the same as last year's offerings, photos taken with the new phones will apparently have the potential to come out clearer due to the devices' speed. Largely due to this edge to edge display the XR measures 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3mm and weighs 194g.

So is there no Home button on the iPhone XR? The Xr will be available to order on October 19th and ship on the 26th. With its new tech, the iPhone can now change the depth of field in a picture even after it has been taken.

DeAndre Yedlin's Comment To The Referee After Fouling Neymar Instantly Goes Viral
Neymar , who now plays for France's PSG, converted the penalty with a soft shot to the left as Steffen lunged to the right. The referee though whistled for a free-kick for a foul by the Newcastle player on Neymar midway through the first half.

It also pushed smartphone prices into the stratosphere with the iPhone X retailing in Australia for $1579 and $1829.

As 9to5Mac reported ahead of the Keynote, the phone will feature a 6.1-inch, edge-to-edge LCD screen that Apple calls the Liquid Retina Display.

These features will be available to USA customers later this year, but Apple did not say when it would make it to the rest of the world.

The camera also benefits from the new power of the A12 Bionic processor, improved sensors, and improved image signal processor.

When Apple introduced the iPhone X past year at a starting price of US$999, some analysts were skeptical that people would pay up so much.

Along with a pretty, sleek exterior, the new Apple Watch will also give you an OS that glimmers and glows.

Unlike the iPhone XS, this one comes in a variety of six different colours including: white, blue, yellow, black, coral and even a Product RED version right off the bat.
