Updated Apple system takes on smartphone addiction

Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone

APPLE smashed all smartphone price records this morning, unveiling its biggest iPhone screen inside its most eye-wateringly expensive mobile phone to date.

New Depth Control allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture to create striking portraits with a handsome bokeh effect. We have the details on buying an unlocked iPhone XS Max SIM-free handset here - probably best to sit down for a few minutes. It has the largest display ever seen in an iPhone.

The California tech giant said it would begin selling its 5.8-inch iPhone XS and 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max later this month, keeping the starting price of the company's top-end model at $999 but bumping the entry price for the version with the larger screen.

On that basis, the numbers you need to know are $1,249/£1,249 for the 256GB model and an eye-watering $1,449/£1,449 for the mighty 512GB iPhone XS Max. No OLED screen and it's made of aluminium instead of stainless steel, but the bells and whistles inside are pretty similar to its iPhone XS cousins.

That's where the new iPhone XR comes in.

'Apple's new phone's name is iphone XS which like every other iphone would be EXCESSively overpriced, ' @Bhavessshh tweeted. The cheaper iPhone XRs will be available to pre-order on Oct 19 and will be in stores starting Oct 26.

Also featuring an all-screen design, it actually has a larger screen than the iPhone XS, coming up to 6.1-inches.

As that is impossible, and would be counter-productive to Apple's sales strategy, chief executive Tim Cook has pushed price levels up, anticipating that he would have to do that anyway.

UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid warned that the men will be caught and prosecuted if they ever step out of Russian Federation . Russian Federation had previously said the names given to them by British prosecutors were meaningless.

"While it's now the cheapest new iPhone of the lot, the iPhone XR gets a large 6.1" edge to edge display that uses IPS instead of OLED.

Both models will go up for pre-orders September 14, and ships from September 21 for the first wave of launch countries.

A12 Bionic, it is claimed, is 15% faster than A11 processor, 50% more efficient, and provides a 50% boost to graphics performance.

The XS Max has a significantly larger screen size than the iPhone 8 Plus, previously Apple's largest phone, despite the two devices being nearly exactly the same size.

Apple just unveiled the iPhone XR at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cupertino, along with the iPhone XS and XS Max.

The front camera can also be used for Portrait Mode selfies.

As a result, many have pointed out that it sounds much like "excess" and 'excess Max'.

Given the XR's budget nature, it's smaller than its Xs and Xs Max cousins, and it only houses a single 12mp rear camera.
