Got $1,100? Apple shows off its most expensive iPhone yet

Last Minute iPhone XS Leak Is Pretty Underwhelming

The iPhone XS right and the XS Max are displayed at an announcement event for new products at Apple headquarters in Cupertino Calif

The strategy has been successful, helping Apple's stock up more than 30 pct this year and making it the first publicly traded USA company to hit a market value of more than US$1 trillion.

The iPhone XS Max has a starting price of $1,099 (for the 64GB variant); it is priced at $1,249 for the 256GB variant and $1,449 for the 512GB variant.

iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max come in gorgeous gold, space gray and silver finishes.

Creative Strategies analyst Carolina Milanesi said some iPhone buyers might hold off buying Apple's most expensive smartphone this year, with a survey of 955 smartphone users finding fewer than one in five would have paid for a bigger version of the iPhone X.

iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max reach a new level of splash and water resistance of IP68 for up to 2 meters for 30 minutes and protect against everyday spills including coffee, tea and soda.

The iPhone XR uses the same TrueDepth camera as the iPhone XS. It's a weighty device at 208 grams but feels surprisingly lighter in hand. For the Chinese users, Apple has made an iPhone Xs Max with a SIM slot that can take two SIMs, on either sides.

Inside the new iPhone models is an updated Apple A12 Bionic processor. The front is dominated by a screen with a notch on top.

The display on the iPhone XS Max has 3.3 million pixels and the same pixel density as the iPhone XS.

As with previous years, the next iPhone will likely get upgrades in its processing speed and camera, as well as an update to the iOS operating system. The company also touted its own fresh four-core GPU design that purports to be as much as 50% faster than the part in the A11. We tried the new Bethesda game Blade game and it looked visually very appealing - although we did notice some stuttering as we flicked around the gameplay settings. You get a 12MP main sensor, and another 12MP telephoto lens, with new lenses, that are supposedly better than before.

Hurricane Florence: North Carolina residents urged to leave
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles. Utility officials have warned that widespread power outages are likely and that it could take weeks to restore electricity.


The 12-megapixel dual camera system features dual optical image stabilisation with 2x optical zoom, while a new sensor is twice as fast.

Apple has made progress when it comes to software by introducing the new Smart HDR mode with zero shutter lag. The larger screen will allow developers to fit more stuff on apps like Maps or Photos, he said.

You can also now chose the amount of bokeh after you've taken the photo. Good, because this iPhone event is about to kick off.

"When asked if they agreed with the statement "I would have paid even more for an iPhone X with a larger screen size had it been available" only five per cent strongly agreed and another 14 per cent said they somewhat agreed", she said.

As you can see from the image above, the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max now come with better displays with higher refresh rates, better color production, and more.

Thank you for signing up for the 5 Things to Know Newsletter. They've also extended the workout time for battery life to 6-hours.

The iPhone Max is clearly designed for iPhone Plus owners- consumers that want a large device with a large screen and a battery to go with that.

What do you think of the latest price cut?

Apple says that it's allowing access to the Neural Engine through its CoreML API, and it brought forth the developers of HomeCourt, a real-time basketball tutoring app that benefited from the enhancements in the A12's AI accelerator.
