Apple's 2018 iPhone Event: What You Need to Know

Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

Users access notifications, the Control Center, and more using swipes; Face ID takes over unlocking, as with the other two models.

The new iPhones are likely to start at $800 for the LCD model, $900 for the iPhone X update and $1,000 for 6.5-inch OLED model, up from last year's starting prices of $699, $799 and $999, according to Nomura Group.

The strategy has been successful, helping Apple's stock up more than 30 pct this year and making it the first publicly traded USA company to hit a market value of more than US$1 trillion. Though the headphones got off to a slow start, they have quickly helped Apple capture 26% of the USA wireless headphone market, according to NPD Group.

The iPhone XR will have three storage options: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. These include the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and a more affordable successor to the iPhone 8 called the iPhone Xr. After that, you'll pay $49 to replace the battery of any old iPhone model, except for the iPhone X, whose battery replacement fee will go up to $69. Apple has made it IP68 which means that it's water resistant upto 2 meters and 30 minutes.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the next flagship smartphones from the company. Apple says you'll get a half-hour more on the XS compared to the X and 90 minutes more for the XS Max.

Both feature a stainless steel design available in gold, silver and space gray and feature dual-SIM support.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 will be available to order from this Friday 14 September, and it'll be in shops from a week later, on 21 September.

"The device features a 6.1" "Liquid Retina" all-screen LCD display (with Apple's signature notch), Apple's "most durable" glass to date.

Man jailed in Italy for writing fake TripAdvisor review - company
TripAdvisor said in a statement that the sentence was handed down in June by a court in the southern Italian city of Lecce. TripAdvisor associate general counsel VP, Brad Young said: "We see this as a landmark ruling for the Internet".

Verizon rolling Android 8.0 Oreo for Samsung Galaxy J7 and J7 V
Samsung sent out invitations on Friday (Sep 14) for an Oct 11 event to launch a new mobile device under its Galaxy line. The company also announced a bunch of other things, including a new Bixby-powered smart speaker .

Apart from the new display size and panels on the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, the new devices come equipped with the A12 Bionic chipset. It also captures interframes, plus a long exposure, all of which is merged into a single photo with awesome dynamic range. We tried the new Bethesda game Blade game and it looked visually very appealing - although we did notice some stuttering as we flicked around the gameplay settings.

So, if you have a thing for both iPhones and headphone jacks, this is unfortunate news for you as the current iPhone lineup, which consists of the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, and iPhone Xs Max does not feature the headphone jack.

You're still getting two 12MP sensors on the back, however the pixel size has now been increased to 1.4um on the wide-angle camera.

For imaging, the iPhone XR uses a single 12 MP standard shooter which has 1.4 um pixels and a f/1.8 aperture 6-element lens.

But Ms Milanesi said the result did not account for the top iPhone's new features.

The processor allows for more powerful graphics performance, better photo processing, and real-time machine learning. What's more, reports going back a few months relayed that Apple had plans to completely eliminate the 2017 iPhone X from its product line.

We'll be making sure to give the battery a full workout when we get our hands on the review devices.

Apple claims the XR will boast "all-day" battery life.
