Apple on Wednesday announced a host of new products, including the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xs Max, the iPhone Xr, and the Apple Watch Series 4. Will the new releases be enough to overtake Samsung as Singapore's top mobile preference? The display on the new iPhone XS additionally supports 120Hz touch-sensing and its not same as a 120Hz display. Apple just gets us.

I know, I know, we're the Android Police, so I'm sure the vast majority of our readers will answer "No" when it comes to buying one of Apple's new iPhones.

Adding to the mystery, Apple declined to provide further details on AirPower's status.

Apple is not first smartphone manufacturer to offer a software-enabled bokeh feature for a single-lens camera to produce a depth of field. Interested? The XS and the XS Max hit India on September 28 in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB configurations starting at Rs 99,900 (XS) and Rs 1.10 lakh (XS Max).

Despite the high price, the iPhone XS Max were in deficit before the start of sales. The iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch display while the Max version has a 6.5-inch display. "Taken to the extreme". Its screen uses OLED technology, its metal is stainless steel and its glass is more durable.

The rear-facing camera setup is another section where the two smartphones go in different directions. Perhaps the success of iPhone X encouraged Apple to make the bold move.

The next bundle is named the XS bundle and is targeted at the iPhone XS. "The 6.5" gadget has the largest screen in the smartphone lineup's history.

The iPhone X was the best thing since sliced bread (or sliced iPhone at least) but has now been discontinued.

The watch, which is more intuitive to the wearer's health, has an accelerometer and gyroscope, which detects hard falls, making it beneficial for elderly or disabled users. And it says a lot about our era of digital binging that Apple will probably sell them like hot cakes.

It has a built-in electrical heart rate sensor that can take an electrocardiogram, which is a first for a wearable device.

Component prices may have lowered in the past year, according to analysts, but Apple's new pricing doesn't reflect that.

At one point during Apple's keynote, three people demonstrating an augmented-reality game faced off while consumed by their giant screens, the ideal image for our binge smartphone times.
