New Apple Watch To Detect Abnormal Heartbeats

There're two upgraded models: the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, both looking very much the same as last year's iPhone X. The (literally) big difference is that the iPhone XS Max is a huge version of the iPhone X, sporting a 6.5-inch screen despite being the same physical size as an iPhone 8 Plus.

Both of the new phones will run on Apple's new A12 Bionic chip that includes a neural engine. The screen needs no backlight, so black would appear as truly black rather than simply dark. With the redesigned Apple Watch Series 4, it will automatically detect if you've fallen and ask you if you want to send an Emergency SOS.

The post A new iPhone XS Max with a maxed out 512GB capacity will cost you almost $2.4k in Singapore appeared first on Coconuts.

"One of the most common injuries is falls", Apple COO Jeff Williams said during the presentation. IPhones fetched an average price of $724 during the April-June period, a almost 20 percent increase from a year earlier. Also, with this launch, Apple has killed off last year's iPhone X, iPhone SE as well as the iPhone 6S series, its last models with a 3.5mm earphone jack.

If that claim is accurate, it'll be interesting to see it in action; Face ID in the iPhone X is fast, but there's still room for improvement. It'll cost roughly $750 and come out on October 26.

Like the XS and XS MAX, the XR has a new Depth Control slider feature that lets you adjust the depth-of-field in Portrait Mode photos after they're captured, going from maximum bokeh at f/1.8 to maximum depth-of-field at f/16. The company will buy your old devices if they're in good condition or recycle them for free if they're not usable.

For everyone else, many of whom are still using iPhones they purchased several years ago, there's the XR. And it says a lot about our era of digital binging that Apple will probably sell them like hot cakes. "It is a smart strategy to keep more people in the Apple ecosystem and get even more people to come into it".

The Apple Inc. iPhone XR smartphone is displayed during an event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, U.S., on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018.

At Wednesday's event, Apple also unveiled a new Watch with a larger screen and new health capabilities. The latter feature has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the company said. Typically, smartwatches are marketed as consumer devices, not medical ones needing clearance.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will feature a larger screen, more than 30% larger than previous generations, as well as a thinner body. Apple's dual SIM solution, in the United States, would enable someone to use AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile (but not Sprint) as their primary carrier while using any carrier that offers a SIM card as the secondary carrier. This feature may be especially attractive to older people or those with elderly parents anxious about falling when no one is around to help.
