Apple's new growth drivers: Higher prices, and a watch for Granny

Apple's new growth drivers: Higher prices, and a watch for Granny

So it's not a complete surprise that Apple would continue in this homeless direction (and not come back to it). As a point of comparison, the regular Xs costs £999 (the same price as last year's iPhone X) and the iPhone XR will start at £749. There's no home button on any of them - love it or hate it, Apple is putting the fingerprint reader permanently out to pasture. But it's time to move on. Expectations for Apple's lineup have been fueled by reports from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is based in Taiwan, where numerous contracts manufacture that also make Apple products are based.

When can you pre-order Apple's latest iPhone Xr with 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display?

Last but not least, Apple also gave more information about its GiveBack program, where you can trade-in your existing iPhone and get the value in return if it's deemed reusable.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max keep the iPhone X thin-bezel body style with display notch for front-facing cameras and sensors.

Besides the wide stereo sound on this new device, the larger screen may excite those looking for a better display. It comes equipped with a 12MP wide-angle camera with an all-new sensor and 1.4 million pixels (the same as in the iPhone XS and XS Max).

Apple removed the iPhone SE and iPhone 6S-along with last year's iPhone X-from its website after its launch event in Cupertino, California, on Wednesday, seemingly discontinuing the last Apple phones with built-in 3.5mm headphone jacks from its lineup.

Probably the most impressive change, you can adjust the depth of field of photos after they've been taken.

Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XSMax will be available in India starting September 28 through Apple Authorised Resellers.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 device has a 35% bigger display screen than its predecessor and comes in two different sizes: 40mm or 44mm.

The XR will need to be tapped to wake up, and has Face ID similar with the Xs. Inside it even shares the same brand new A12 Bionic processor found in the new XS and XS Max, and features IP67 waterproofing up to one meter for 20 minutes.

The iPhone Xr is also splash and water resistant, with a rating of IP67, and will also come in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and the exclusive (PRODUCT) RED edition, which helps raise awareness and inspire action to fight HIV/AIDS.

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.
