Winners and losers: Apple's 2018 iPhone event

Apple iPhones get bigger and pricier

Apple iPhones get bigger and pricier

The three bundles are named after the three new iPhones released earlier this month and have been priced identically to make it even more obvious that Xiaomi is poking fun at Apple's latest devices.

But when Apple unveiled the iPhone XR at its annual hardware event on Wednesday, everything changed - all of a sudden, I was marking my calendar for October 19, when the new phone is available to preorder. Apple just gets us. But do they deliver?

But regardless of which iPhone you are after, expect to pay more this year. Explaining its latest offerings, Apple said that these improvements allow the new devices to enthral its users with slicker camera effects and augmented reality experiences.

"Some Series 4 and XS Max models sold out in less than a minute".

Apple says apps will launch up to 40 percent faster on the iPhone 6S, for instance, and you'll be able to open the camera up to 70 percent faster.

With Apple stubbornly using an outdated design for its Plus models for the past few years the Galaxy Note lineup was largely unchallenged from the iOS side. The part I didn't understand until I held one is that the phone's overall shape is actually very similar to last year's iPhone 8 Plus. Its lower resolution allows it to have a greater autonomy of nearly 3 hours compared to the XS. The two devices are among the most expensive in the market.

Booming sales for Woodward's 'Fear,' Trump presidency book
Some former White House officials who spoke with Woodward have tried to distance themselves from the book. In 2004, Bill Clinton's memoir "My Life" sold more than 1 million copies within eight days.

Kendricks was indicted along with "Black-ish" TV writer Damilare Sonoiki, a Harvard educated former investment banker. He also claimed he didn't take any of the profits for himself but didn't elaborate on where the money went.

One of the most intriguing features, however, is also the least glamorous: After you drop a grand on your new iPhone, feel free to accidentally drop it in the toilet. So, thinking of picking up Apple's new iPhone XR or iPhone XS? It's thinner on your wrist, though the bigger screen will please those craving for a plus-sized version of the bigger 42mm Series 3.

British journalist Caroline Criado Perez told The UK Telegraph she suffered from a repetitive strain injury after using an iPhone 6, which has a 4.7-inch-wide screen, because it was too large for her grip. Shops and carriers happily give you a deal, but they might already be low on inventory and you end up waiting weeks for your new iPhone Xs.

The Sun also explained that as the iPad Pro comes in two sizes, the 10.5-inch starting at £619 and the 12.9-inch at £769, added storage and WiFi connectivity can drive the cost up to £1,249 and we could see a dramatic price increase for this product in a similar way to the iPhone previous year.

Good luck ever putting it down.

Enthusiasts were overly excited by the leaks and rumours of the budget iPhone which was expected to be launched at a much cheaper price as compared to other models.
