X marks the slot as Apple moves to eSIM

Pre-orders for both phones are planned to start this week, on Friday, September 14; the phones are otherwise scheduled to be available in stores starting on the following Friday, September 21.

California tech giant Apple on Wednesday unveiled its first dual-SIM card gadget at an event held at the company's new headquarters, Steve Jobs Theater, in Cupertino, California.

That said, there were a handful of noteworthy announcements related to Apple's popular iPhone, Apple Watch, and the its approach to software and internal hardware that ties its products together.

Apple did not mention its AirPower wireless charging mat this week at its annual iPhone event.

The iPhone X is the blueprint for three new iPhone models comprised of the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr. So, what are the important differences to know before you choose which new iPhone X is right for you?

There is a notch for the front-facing camera, and just like the iPhone Xs, and the X before it, the Xr also uses Face ID for unlock and authentication. The cheapest version of the iPhone Xs with the most limited amount of storage (64 GB) will cost $999, while the Xs Max's base price starts at $1,099.

Unlike the dual-SIM setups we have seen in Android phones for several years now, there will be no secondary SIM slot in the new iPhone XS and iPhone XR models, except in China, Hong Kong, and Macau.

As 9to5Mac reported ahead of the Keynote, the phone will feature a 6.1-inch, edge-to-edge LCD screen that Apple calls the Liquid Retina Display.

And despite having a slightly bigger screen than last year's iPhone 8 Plus, it's packed into a much smaller overall package.

Apple also announced a new Apple Watch, which will move further into medical device territory.

Lexus Starts Dropping Traditional Sideview Mirrors For Cameras
Other benefits include a reduction of wind noise and better forward visibility due to the elimination of large side mirrors. Drivers can also change the images manually "to obtain complete peripheral awareness of the area around the vehicle".

Analysts expect the devices to come in new colors: Gold, anyone? The company showed off improved features including a faster, more capable processor, higher quality camera and better battery life.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 features sensors that can detect when wearers suffer a heavy fall as well as alert them if it clocks abnormal heart rates. If the user is immobile for more than a minute after the notification, the watch can automatically call for help "and send a message along with location to emergency contacts", Apple says.

This does beg the question of whether anyone with an Apple Watch will be able to chat to anyone else with the gadget.

Apple said it's the first ECG product offered over the counter directly to consumers.

Apple says the heart data can be shared with doctors, though it's not yet clear how ready doctors are to getting all that.

The cameras are being powered by lots of smart algorithms working under the hood, which also enable a new smart HDR feature as well as the ability to adjust the depth-of-field of a photo after the fact.

The real improvement, however, is how its Apple-designed image signal processor (ISP) works.

This gives the phone up to 15% faster performance cores and up to 50% faster graphics performance.

"I really wish when I was younger we had these tools", Nash said.
