IPhone Xs officially unveiled with 120Hz HDR screen and 512GB of storage

IPhone Xs officially unveiled with 120Hz HDR screen and 512GB of storage

And the upgrades to Apple's already impressive lineup of sensors should enable sharper photos and more immersive videos; the improved Apple Watch now has FDA-approved sensors that could prove to be life-savers. While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display. Apple said the A12 can process 5 trillion operations per second, compared to 600 billion operations with the A11 chip.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, along with the Apple Watch Series 4 and a slew of new features aimed at improving upon the health, fitness, photography and other capabilities customers have come to depend on. The iPhone Xs screen measures 5.8-inches, just like the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display.

The issues for Google don't end there: Apple is still king of the hill when it comes to sister products. Apple's brought back the "S" model, which means this model looks largely the same as the X from past year, but the guts of the phone have been beefed up in all the ways you'd expect. First things first: Apple would really rather you call them "iPhone Ten Ess" rather than "Ex Ess". Now the decision is made up. Fine. But I still don't need a smart watch. However, the XS Max, true to its name, has a whopping 6.5-inch display.

The smaller Pixel 2 a year ago started at $650, but its dated and comparatively crude design made that feel like less than a bargain.

Apple is clear that they don't want to control usage but they are giving users the tools to better manage their time on screen.

The median USA household income rose for a third straight year in 2017 to the highest on record since 1967 by one measure, government data showed on Wednesday. The watch can also detect atrial fibrillation and take an electrocardiogram, or ECG.




Part of that probably has to do with the fact there were lots of leaks ahead of Apple's keynote event, so the news wasn't unexpected.

Appearing at the Apple event, Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, called the heart-monitoring features "game changing", especially the ability to detect an irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation.

"This is a pretty big deal", said health care tech analyst Ross Muken at Evercore.

Apple also announced updates that push its Apple Watch further into medical device territory. Apple Watch Series 4 boasts a speaker that is 50 percent louder as well as a better microphone.

Design-wise, the iPhone Xr bears similarities to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max with a 6.1-inch all-screen build, slim bezels and the signature notch which incorporates Face ID and gestural navigation, but for a considerably lower price starting at $749 Dollars, and available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models.
