IPhone XR First Impressions

Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday Apple Leaks The iPhone XS, XS Max, XR
Troy Mann | 15 September, 2018, 19:00

Speaking of which, let's talk about the not-so-headline-grabbing iPhone XR. Apart from the iPhones launched, Apple also upgraded its smartwatch, the Apple Watch series 4, with a larger display and enhanced smart features.

Apple announced on stage Bell Canada will be the only carrier in Canada to support eSIM on iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max at launch.

The 5.8-inch iPhone Xs and 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max feature stunning Super Retina displays, a faster and improved dual camera system that offers breakthrough photo and video features, the first 7-nanometer chip in a smartphone - the A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine - faster Face ID, wider stereo sound, a lovely new gold finish and introduce Dual SIM to iPhone. Home buttons were replaced with screen swipes, taps and facial recognition capabilities.

However, that's not all.

With the latest A12 Bionic processor from Apple on board - providing a speed boost of 15 percent on the CPU and 50 percent on the GPU, apparently - all your iOS 12 apps should scoot along rather nicely. Add to that, the iPhones also pack an augmented reality feature.

Mother and infant are first Hurricane Florence fatalities
The outer bands of Hurricane Florence began battering the coast of North and South Carolina Thursday with strong winds and rain. A state of emergency has been declared in five coastal states - North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland and Virginia.


"Apple doesn't have to prove anything, other than that they are willing to segment the market more", Technalysis Research chief analyst Bob O'Donnell said, while pointing out that the company will likely be "offering a wider array of choices". It's an OLED panel with a resolution of 2688x1242 giving it the same density as the smaller iPhone Xs at 458 ppi. The regular iPhone Xs gains an extra 30 minutes of run time versus the iPhone X, while the increased size of the iPhone Xs Max allows Apple to cram in "the biggest battery it's ever put in a smartphone". The iPhone Xs will start at $999 for the 64-GB model, while the iPhone Xs Max will start at $1,099. They may become even more attractive to buyers looking for used iPhone deals.

It will be available in three colors- Space Grey and Silver make a return with the new Gold version that looks stunning, especially with the stainless still band around it. Furthermore, the Xr model lacks 3D Touch, but instead, incorporates a "Haptic Touch", which Apple is marketing, as a long-press is accompanied with haptic feedback. The pre-orders begin on Friday, September 14 and it goes on full sale on September 21. The iPhone Xs Max is similar in size to the iPhone 8 Plus, but with a larger display. While the iPhone XS gets a 5.8-inch all-screen OLED Multi-Touch display, the iPhone XS Max sports a larger 6.5-inch screen, the largest on an iPhone ever.

Thanks to the almost edge-to-edge screen of the Series 4, not only is the actual face bigger, but the display is about 15% larger.

Like the regular Retina display found in other iPhones, the Liquid Retina Display relies on a higher level of pixels-per-inch to create a paper-like screen effect where pixels are not visible to the naked eye. Both smartphones have been given a 7-megapixel RGB camera for selfie, which has an aperture of f / 2.2.
