FDA approves heart monitor in new Apple Watch

FDA approves heart monitor in new Apple Watch

What's remarkable is that it's very rare when the cheapest iPhone of the year catches the maximum attention.

The iPhone XR comes in six colours including coral.

The new device shares the same basic design as the company's flagship iPhone XS and numerous same high-end features, but is $250 cheaper and comes in an assortment of colors.

If you choose to blur the background in a shot with the iPhone XR you can also change the level of blurring after the fact - a trick that the iPhone 8 doesn't offer.

If you last bought an iPhone three years ago, chances are you're using an iPhone 6 or 6s.

The core new characteristic of the new watch is the larger screen which now achieves a higher screen-to-body ratio on the watch. Outwardly, it will look a lot like the iPhone X but will get a processor and memory boost. That's mostly because of the phone's massive display - at 6.5-inches diagonal, this is the biggest screen that Apple has ever squeezed into a smartphone. As you can see, however, this deal is only good for a limited time, and only applies to iPhone XS models.

As mentioned before, the XR has just one rear camera. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera.

Display The one major difference between the iPhone XS and iPhone XR lies in the display.

Apple gadgets were always pricier in Europe and overseas.

Using the direct price conversion, the iPhone XR pricing is quite similar to the iPhone 8 at the time of launch.

In short, Apple's latest announcement prices out consumers looking for a more affordable iPhone, even if it is a few years old.

Apple's cheapest flagship, the iPhone XR will be available starting Rs 76,900 for the 64GB variant, going all the way up to Rs 81,900 for the 128GB and Rs 91,900 for the 256GB variant.

'Apple's new phone's name is iphone XS which like every other iphone would be EXCESSively overpriced, ' @Bhavessshh tweeted.

Faster Processor. All three phones will feature Apple's A12 Bionic chip, which the company promises will speed up operations while also reducing power consumption.

The Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter, as it is called, as been part of the iPhone packaging since the headphone jack was omitted back with the iPhone 7 launch. But with Apple boosting the average iPhone selling price by almost 20 percent, it still meant a bumper year for the tech firm. However, it's early to give a verdict on it but our hunch is that Apple might just have a victor on its hands with the iPhone XR.
