Here's When You Can Pre-Order Your New iPhone From Telstra

Apple to enable the eSIM chip on the 2018 iPhone models with a future iOS 12 update

It's the biggest iPhone ever, with a whopping 6.5 inch display (up from the 5.8 inch screen on the XS model). The Max has a larger display than the usual Plus size phones but a similar body.

Apple says the new watch will be able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call if it detects that a user has fallen down.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X. Both the Xs phones and the Xr can adjust depth of field after a photo has been taken, which is a neat trick.

The XR features numerous same specifications as the XS duo but has only a single rear camera, an LCD screen - unlike the XS' OLED - and starts at £749 when it goes on sale in October.

No home button. Got it. The display consists of a total of 2.7 million pixels, features a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch, and has a notch cut-out for the front-facing camera.

The company said the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will have dual-SIM and dual standby technology.

Apple's strategy of selling pricier phones amid waning demand for smartphones has propelled the Cupertino-based company to become the first publicly traded U.S. company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion (€860 billion).

Apple's smartphone segment is its most significant revenue driver, accounting for more than 60 percent of the company's revenue in fiscal 2017.

Even the iPhone XR isn't that cheap in Europe.

The Series Four will start at $599.

Mac Miller 911 Call Reveals Desperate Situation, 'Please Hurry'
In multiple interviews Miller said he had started using drugs including cocaine and opiates when he was just 15 years old. A desperate 911 call made by a friend of rapper Mac Miller on the night he died has been released.

On the other hand, the iPhone X presently retails in India for Rs 96,800 for the 256GB version and its successor, the iPhone XS starts at a massive Rs 99,900 for just the 64GB model, thereby just in touching distance of the Rs 1 lakh mark. Well, the pricing starts a lot lower than for the iPhone XS, but the differences between European and US pricing are still very much there.

Last year, a fully tricked-out iPhone X would set you back $1,149.

The tech blogger and well-known Apple watcher John Gruber also weighed in, noting that he could find a picture of an AirPower mat but no mention of the product by name on Apple's site. With curved corners, it's also slightly thinner, has more reliable reception and two times faster, thanks to a new processor. The crown has been improved and now gives haptic feedback, trying to mimick the "clicking wheel" feel such as in more mechanical dials, or more aptly, the clicking of a mouse wheel when you scroll with it.

The feature is available immediately worldwide and will turn on automatically for users 65 and over.

Apple unveiled three new iPhones on Wednesday in a bid to bolster its spot in the premium smartphone market, along with an upgraded smartwatch that takes electrocardiograms and detects falls. The company says it's the first EKG available over the counter.

Apple has also confirmed it's dropping the price of the Series 3 watch to £279.

You will have to wait longer for the cheaper model though - pre-orders don't open until 19 October, with shipping and in-store sales starting on 26 October.

Apple also highlighted its recycling program called GiveBack.
