The much awaited Apple event this week saw the launch of a new range of iPhones. These include the much leaked iPhone XS which CEO Tim Cook described as, “The most advanced iPhone ever created.” Made of stainless steel with a gold, silver or grey finish and new glass. It has improved water resistance, a 5.8-inch screen capable of showing HD movies. Face ID is improved to make it more secure and a new A12 Bionic processor chip with 6 cores makes for faster performance and the ability to handle more storage.
The anticipated larger iPhone XS Max, that’s somewhere between a phone and a tablet with a 6.5-inch display, launched too. It has the same case size as the old X Plus but with a smaller bezel to accommodate the larger screen. These phones are driven by the new iOS 12 operating system which was unveiled in August to get the best from the new chips.
There is also a new Apple Watch series 4, redesigned with a bigger display, improved interface, better battery life and new health tracking features, including a heart monitor that can take ECGs. The earlier series 3 continues in production at a lower price.
