Apple ditches free headphone adapter with new iPhones

How to watch Apple's 2018 iPhone keynote announcement - Stream, schedule, info

As 9to5Mac notes, the only place where Apple had even mentioned AirPower was on the iPhone X product page, which has since been removed to make way for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xr.

However, with "decent improvements in the mix"- he highlighted the phone's louder speakers and more colourful screen - there's no doubt the iPhone XS looks like a great phone.

Executives spent a lot of time boasting about the A12 Bionic chip that powers the new phones.

The iPhone XR has debuted with a 6.1in screen and a brand new all-screen liquid retina display ("the most colour accurate in the industry") along with an all-new advanced single camera system.

Fall is a time for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and new iPhones.

Both the Xs and Xs Max come with a dual camera setup, featuring a 12mp wide-angle lens and a 12mp telephoto lens on the rear, and a 7mp RGB camera, paired with an IR camera on the front. Both are also expected to get a bit more battery life, with the XS getting roughly 30 minutes more and the XS Max getting an hour more. There will also be 128GB and 256GB models.

While the iPhone has made Apple the world's most valuable company, worth more than $1 trillion, it has slipped to third place among smartphone makers as Chinese-based Huawei has grabbed the number two spot behind Samsung.

The devices don't have a home button and feature Face ID in lieu of a Touch ID fingerprint scanner. Schiller called it the "smartest and most powerful chip ever in a smartphone". It's not a flagship device but it's price point suggests it would at least, like an iPhone 8 Plus, have features like a secondary camera.

Alright, you might say, but what about the "cheap" iPhone XR? It will be available for pre-order from October 19 and be on full sale from October 26.

Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks during an Apple special event at the Steve Jobs Theatre on September 12, 2018 in Cupertino, California.

The iPhone XS comes in gold, space gray, and silver. The iPhone XS has a price that starts at $999, but tops out at $1,349. The edges are noticeably rounder, though it still retains the square look. The new Watch includes a sensor allowing users to take an electrocardiogram they can share with their doctor. The crown has been improved and now gives haptic feedback, trying to mimick the "clicking wheel" feel such as in more mechanical dials, or more aptly, the clicking of a mouse wheel when you scroll with it.

For users on Apple's upgrade plan, the tricked-out iPhone XS Max will run them a cool $68.66 a month on a 24-month payment plan.

The Series 4 range will have an edge-to-edge screen like the new iPhones and is packing a bunch of features aimed at turning it into serious medical device.

When you fire up the app, you get a list of cards with all the Apple Watch owners you've spoken to recently at the top and underneath each card is an "available" slider which can be toggled on or off depending on whether or not the person is open for a chat.
