Leaked iPhone Xr SIM card trays reveal new color options

Leaked iPhone Xr SIM card trays reveal new color options

One way to do that is to get people to buy more expensive phones.

The long wait for new iPhones is now officially over. Although the iPhone X didn't fulfill analysts' lofty sales expectations, it fared well enough for Apple to up the ante with the bigger model, whose price Apple is expected to unveil Wednesday. Phil Schiller, the company's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, described A12 Bionic as "the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone".

This iPhone Xs will have IP68 water resistance, and it'll have a display that's extremely similar to its predecessor. In return, the iPhone Xr starts at $749 for the 64GB version, the iPhone Xs starts at $999 and the iPhone Xs Max starts at $1099.

An upgraded version of the iPhone X with a 5.8-inch screen, but adding a faster processor and upgraded cameras.

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.

For comparison, the iPhone XS Max is bigger even than the Galaxy Note 9, which spans 6.4 inches. The iPhone XS claims 30 minutes more life compared to the iPhone X, while the XS Max delivers an hour and a half extra juice. It also features a king-size price of $1,099.

The iPhone Xs succeeds last year's flagship model with a faster A12 processor and updated cameras.

The new Apple Watch also makes some important advances to the devices' health features.

Apple Watch Series 4 Hands-On: A Seriously Stunning Screen
Inside the Apple Watch Series 4 is a new 64-bit dual-core S4 processor, which Apple claims offers up to 2x faster performance. The starting price is $279, while the Global Positioning System version costs $399 and the cellular variant begins at $499.

As ever, there has been much hype and excitement about this year's Apple event and the promise of new iPhones. "The iPhone X came out". One other perk: The iPhone XR will be available in a variety of colors including black, red, white, blue, coral and yellow.

Apple also said that its next major update to its iOS operating system will come next Tuesday, followed a week later by a Mac software update.

The iPhone XS has the biggest battery ever put in an iPhone. During the second quarter, which is typically slow for Apple, China's Huawei Technologies surpassed Apple as the second-largest seller of smartphones, based on Gartner's calculations.

Kuo's crystal ball did throw up some more information about Apple's rumoured "affordable" MacBook, though. Apple, due to its time to market, got the first batch.

In the quarter ended December 31, 2017 (the first full quarter following the iPhone X launch, and including the all-important holiday season), iPhone sales represented 69% of total AAPL revenue. This years big news?

Will those people stubbornly holding on to an iPhone 6 or iPhone 7 finally be tempted by the iPhone XR? The stereo speakers have also been improved to provide "wider" stereo sound.

We'll find out soon.

Pre-orders for the iPhone Xr begins on October 19, with the phone hitting store shelves on October 26.
