IPhone XR in 2 minutes: All you need to know

The post A new iPhone XS Max with a maxed out 512GB capacity will cost you almost $2.4k in Singapore appeared first on Coconuts.

By manufacturing more expensive iPhones, Apple has been able to boost profits despite falling demand due to people upgrading their phones less frequently. iPhones fetched an average price of $724 during the April-June period this year, a 20 percent increase from a year earlier.

The Apple Inc. iPhone XR smartphone is displayed during an event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, U.S., on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018.

Mind you, it might turn out to be too easy to launch the flashlight or camera if you're not careful. There have been rumblings that Apple is primarily focused on ramping up production of the XS and XR models and that an update to the iPhone SE is the least of the company's worries at the moment. Here's what you need to know about it. The iPhone XR goes on sale October 26. Both the iPhones will be available for pre-order starting September 14 and will ship starting September 21. I couldn't run benchmarks during my short time with the phone, but the A12's specs look absolutely fearsome, especially in the graphics and image-processing departments. And it's actually R750 less than Apple charged for the iPhone 8 Plus past year. The 512GB iPhone XS Max will put a €1,300 dent in your pocket.

Apple's iPhone XR comes with a larger 6.1-inch all-screen display with notch featuring Truedepth sensor.

Putin Says U.K. Attack Suspects Are Civilians, Should Go Public
They are civilians of course. "I would like to appeal to them so that they hear us today". "They should go to some media outlet". "There is nothing particularly criminal there, I assure you", Putin said.

The device was announced at the end of Apple's press event, which was dominated by the company's unveiling of its new flagship XS models that have little noticeable difference from last year's iPhone X.

Like the regular Retina display found in other iPhones, the Liquid Retina Display relies on a higher level of pixels-per-inch to create a paper-like screen effect where pixels are not visible to the naked eye.

The iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED for $749. Apple Watch Series 4 wearers can open up the Health app, put their finger on the digital crown, wait 30 seconds and then get a heart rate analysis. The iPhone XS Max fits into the same footprint as the iPhone 8 Plus. In comparison, iPhone XS has 2436x1125-pixel resolution at 458 ppi pixel density.

But if that's not enough to convince them it's a worthy upgrade, the XR also offers numerous same cutting-edge features found on the top-of-the-line XS models. The back of the phone is also glass, which allows for wireless charging.

Instead of a dual camera, the iPhone XR features a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle lens. The thicker, less flexible LCD display panel results in slightly larger bezels all around the XR than on the OLED iPhones.
