Apple Watch Series 4 First Look: A Medical Wearable in Pretty Disguise

As always, you could spend more to get more storage, but less than $800 got you Apple's latest and greatest smartphone - significantly less if you didn't want a giant screen.

In what sure seems like a blatant bit of nickel-and-diming, Apple will no longer include a free 3.5-mm headphone jack conversion dongle with the new iPhones it announced on Wednesday.

The iPhone XS Max's display size is 26 percent larger than the previous largest iPhone display, marking it the largest increase in screen size since 2014. "Background reading will work with any NDEF formatted tag", according to the Apple developer portal. What has to occupy you when you're looking to buy is just exactly how big they are and whether they will fit on your wrist.

You spent $999 on an iPhone X. Here's how much you can get for it. Third-party developers are expected to take advantage of this addition and possibly add creative solutions to their apps and website experience on the iPhone.

Both the high-end iPhone models get an upgraded display panel which Apple is calling "Super Retina". As for the iPhone11,6 identifier, this appears to be the iPhone Xs thanks to the 4GB of RAM detailed in the specifications list. You can pick from in silver, space grey, and a new polished gold color.

While high-end smartphone sales growth is unlikely, the lower-priced iPhone Xr may become "the big seller of the three", despite the later release date.

To make way for the brand new iPhone Xr, Xs and Xs Max, Apple has discontinued the iPhone SE, 6S/6S Plus and even the 10th anniversary 'X, ' which only debuted last September. For most customers, the compromises (LCD rather than OLED display, one camera instead of two, aluminum edge instead of stainless steel) won't matter almost as much as the $250 savings. The iPhone XR also promises 1.5 hours more battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus. In a press release, Apple COO Jeff Williams said the watch now "becomes an intelligent guardian for your health", the unveiling of which a Fitbit spokesperson followed up with the predictable comment you often see in these scenarios like this.
