Apple has unveiled details of its latest in-house Arm-based system-on-chip (SoC), the A12 Bionic, powering its next-generation smartphones - and in doing so may beat rival Huawei to market with a commercial 7nm part.
Try searching for the iPhone X on Apple's website, and you're redirected to a landing page showing off the 2018 range of the iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XR. Apart from that they also launched the latest Apple Watch Series 4.
Connections-wise Gareth confirms there is no headphone port, but that a pair of Lightning connector earbuds come packed in the box. It starts at $749 for the 64 GB model and will cost more for its 128 GB and 256 GB models.
The phone feels like a plus-size device in the hand according to Gareth, but he notes that it "doesn't feel unwieldy due to the fact the display stretches from edge to edge". Side by side, the iPhone XR screen looks duller and less pin-sharp. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera. Features like post-editing Depth Control and Smart HDR will also be supported on the iPhone XR.
Finally, TechRadar's Gareth Beavis states that, despite not being able to test the potency of the iPhone XR's battery, which remains an unknown quantity in terms of mAh, he believes "there are a few good reasons to think that the iPhone XR could have better battery life than expected". Why pay $999 for the wonderful screen on the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max when you could effectively buy the same phone for $100 less?
I've been using Moment lenses with my iPhone X pretty much all year and they're absolutely unbelievable.
'The iPhone Xs Max price reflects the name.,' one user tweeted.
Up until Wednesday, Apple was selling the iPhone 6s for $US450, and the iPhone 6s Plus for $US550.
