Apple iPhones get bigger and pricier, watch turns to health

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

Apple will continue to sell the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 in regular and Plus sizes.

The removal of the headphone dongle listing on Apple's iPhone product pages was first spotted by The Verge. The iPhone X model has a larger screen than other iPhones, covering nearly the entire face of the handset while retaining the overall handset size at or near that of previous models. The XS Max also has a 458 pixels per inch Super Retina display measuring 6.5-inches, with a resolution of 2,688 x 1,242.

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.

As reported earlier by Gadgets Now, Apple has announced price cuts for its current lineup of iPhones following the launch of 2018 iPhones. However, that lower price means a lower quality screen as it also comes with an LCD screen rather than the more expensive OLED screen.

It will be available to order from 19 October, and will start shipping on 26 October.

Apple has unveiled a new smart watch at their annual launch event that is not just faster and sleeker but also capable of saving lives.

"Apple Watch Series 4 is the ultimate guardian for your health, the best fitness companion, and the most convenient way to stay connected", Apple COO Jeff Williams during the press conference. Both watches will be available in three different silver, gold, and space gray aluminum finishes. It is rumored to feature a larger display, faster processor, improved battery life and more.

Apple aficionados in the Middle East will not have long to wait before they get their hands on what the company are calling the "most handsome and advanced" iPhones.

It could also lead some health insurance plans to subsidize the cost of an Apple Watch, Nguyen said. It can detect unusually high or low heartbeats and, more impressively, it can perform an EKG (electrocardiogram) - which tracks the heart's electrical activity.

Some tech commentators are speculating that Apple is behind schedule developing the AirPower, which it first previewed one year ago, and have linked this to Apple's acquisition of the charging startup PowerbyProxi.

Appearing at the Apple event, Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, called the heart-monitoring features "game changing", especially the ability to detect an irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation.

One of the most interesting new features Apple announced had to do with its new iPhone cameras.

As Fortune's John Patrick Pullen noted via Twitter, camera company Lytro debuted a similar feature in 2012, but it didn't take off with consumers. Apple doesn't release sales figures, but estimates from two analysts suggest the company shipped roughly 18 million watches in 2017.

Nash showed off a version of the HomeCourt mobile app built for the new iPhones that can track a person's movements on a basketball court without the help of additional sensors scattered around the area.
