How Apple is trying to reduce e-waste with its new iPhones

It contains the same hardware as the iPhone Xs but utilises a 6.1-inch LCD display instead with "liquid retina" resolution, or 1792×828 to be exact.

"The Xs and Xs Max will essentially be new versions of the OLED iPhone X-the screen on the Max is an enormous 6.5" size with an edge-to-edge display, and the regular XS is 5.8" just like the regular X was.

With a 5.8-inch screen, it will be an advanced version of the iPhone X, which was launched in September, 2017. What it lacks in dual-camera-ness it makes up for with computational photography: the iPhone XR can - like the Google Pixel line - do Portrait Mode using its single camera thanks to improvements to the image signal processor, neural engine, and algorithms.

Apple has a habit of throwing in a few surprises at its launch events so expect plenty of other shiny new gadgets to be unveiled including a new Apple Watch. If the leak is anything to go by you'll be able to buy the iPhone XR in black, white, red, yellow, coral, and blue. Both the bold new color options and the potential "Xc" moniker echo Apple's lower-cost iPhone 5c handset from 2013.

Battery life, in comparison to the iPhone 8 Plus, is improved by 90 minutes. An updated iPhone X, now called the XS, stays at $1,000.

Williams said she didn't know if she would have managed to turn things around if the dispute with Ramos had not occurred. During a fit of intense coughing caused by a pulmonary embolism, her c-section wound then opened up again.

Apple's market capitalization has passed $1 trillion and the company needs to sustain revenue growth from its signature product even as global demand for smart phones plateaus. Both the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max have a dual rear camera setup with a 12MP wide angle sensor and 12MP telephoto sensor. Face ID is reportedly faster on these phones thanks to improved algorithms and a quicker secure enclave. But, as rumoured beforehand, it will be more affordable than the premium models. "The iPhone X came out".

Executives spent a lot of time boasting about the A12 Bionic chip that powers the new phones.

The un-Apple-like move would see the iPad following in the footsteps of the MacBook, which ditched the firm's much-loved MagSafe chargers for USB-C ports in 2016. Like its predecessor, it uses a combination of multiple high-energy processing cores for more intensive tasks, as well as multiple high-efficiency cores for light work like checking email and browsing the web. The body of the phone is now constructed out of "surgical grade" stainless steel and a new glass formulation that promises to be the most durable ever on a smartphone. Look for a larger device, possibly called the iPhone XS Max, a slightly updated flagship device possibly called the iPhone XS, and less expensive versions in new colors.

"Looking for the next wave, Apple is clearly expanding into augmented reality and wearables with the Apple Watch and AirPods wireless headphones", the firm said.
