Apple launches not one, but three new iPhone models!

Employees speaking at the Apple Showcase

If we refer to Apple Singapore's pricing, the iPhone XS is priced from RM4,974 for the base model with 64GB and it goes up to RM7,086 for the 512GB version of the iPhone XS Max.

By far the biggest update to both phones however is with the camera.

With its bezel-less design and curved corners, the 6.5-inch XS Max doesn't feel too big in my hands.

Both smartphones share the same design language as the original iPhone X which means you get a fully glass front and back with a stainless steel frame surrounding the edges.

The new iPhones will produce better low-light photos because the main camera lens has a large micron pixel size of 1.4 - the only other phone with pixel size that large is the Huawei P20 Pro.

Inside there is a next-generation S4 chip with a custom 64-bit dual-core processor, delivering twice the speed while maintaining the same all-day battery life, according to Apple's own testing.

The new device shares the same basic design as the company's flagship iPhone XS and numerous same high-end features, but could be nearly R4,000 cheaper and comes in an assortment of colours.

Even High-Fat Dairy Might Be Good for You
The study of more than 130,000 people in 21 countries is the first of its kind , according to lead author Dr Mashid Dehghan. This includes vitamin K1, K2, calcium, magnesium, potassium, unsaturated fats and amino acids.

Additionally, iPhone XS and XS Max have increased water resistance, enduring up to the depth of 2 metres for up to 30 minutes.

You'll be able to pre-order the iPhone XR beginning Friday, October 19, and it will hit stores on Friday, October 26, in more than 50 countries. The iPhone Xs Max starts at $1,099, which is only $100 more than the starting price for the iPhone Xs. Now you would think that a 6.5-inch screen size would be large, right?

After crunching the (early) numbers, Digitimes Research has issued its first post-announcement estimate, forecasting a grand total of more than 85 million unit shipments for the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR in the second half of 2018 alone. The 6.1-inch features a bright LCD screen and comes in a variety of colors, including white, black, blue, coral and red. The iPhone XR comes with a 12 MP, single rear camera.

To mention some of its more impressive and useful upgrades, the Apple Watch Series 4 seems to work harder for your health, with its new ability to detect hard falls, and even take an ECG reading from your wrist.

They start at $599 with Global Positioning System, and $749 with Global Positioning System and cellular.

Apple's new products aside, it's worth noting that Apple today seemingly axed a number of existing iPhones from its product lineup.

Weighing these futuristic new features against their hefty price tags, will you be waiting in line to grab your next iPhone or Apple Watch?
