Battery life on the iPhone Xs is pegged at 30 minutes more than the iPhone X, while the iPhone Xs Max features the biggest battery Apple has ever made and boosts longevity by 90 minutes.

Apple has announced a new version of its smartwatch during the "Gather Round" event in Cupertino.

Pricing starts at $999 for the iPhone Xs and $1,099 for the iPhone Xs Max.

Apple also showed off a cheaper iPhone, called the iPhone XR.

Apple's newest phones feature faster processors and better memory capacities than their predecessor. With Bollywood memes and dash of desi humour, these relatable jokes have left everyone ROFL-ing. It will feature a 6.1-inch LCD display with an "edge-to-edge" and "top-to-bottom" screen, thus limiting its bezel size. The XR will be available in three storage variants - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, and in five colour variant - white, black, blue, yellow, coral and a (PRODUCT) RED edition as well. The iPhone XR will be coming to India in October, with sales starting from 26th October. To reach customers not willing to pay that much, Apple will have the iPhone XR.

But the arrival of the iPhone Xs and Xr phones reminds us that the deal will soon expire, and prices will go up after December 31st. There's also a new watch face which is customisable for different occasions.


The phones come with a 12-megapixel dual camera, and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera, and can last up to 30 minutes in water up to two meters deep.

The post A new iPhone XS Max with a maxed out 512GB capacity will cost you almost $2.4k in Singapore appeared first on Coconuts.

CEO Tim Cook showed off the Apple XS, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,000.

At $749, the iPhone Xr is $250 cheaper than the iPhone Xs, and $350 cheaper than the iPhone Xs Max, both of which Apple also announced on Wednesday. Apple has worked on a new back for the Watch and it is now made of either black ceramic or sapphire crystal. The selfie camera also offers portrait mode along with portrait lighting effects. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera. "Apple calls it the Liquid Retina Display, 6.1" 1729×828 resolution. One example is using a press to directly launch the camera, reducing the amount of time needed to access an app.

"When asked if they agreed with the statement "I would have paid even more for an iPhone X with a larger screen size had it been available" only five per cent strongly agreed and another 14 per cent said they somewhat agreed", she said.
