Apple Watch Series 4 First Look: A Medical Wearable in Pretty Disguise

In the midst of all those announcements, Apple quietly removed three of the most important iPhones in recent history from its online store, including the iPhone SE. The base variant of iPhone XS with 64GB memory will sell at Rs 99,990 whereas the 64GB variant of the 6.5-inch variant is priced at Rs 1,09,000.

Yesterday Apple announced the iPhone XR, a lower-cost new iPhone that sits beneath the American maker's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max flagships.

Indeed, yesterday people were buzzing that the iPhone Xr offered nearly everything notable about the iPhone X. It has the edge-to-edge display, Face ID and a portrait mode-capable camera (even if it doesn't have dual lenses).

After countless rumors, we've now seen the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max at the big Apple Event Wednesday in Cupertino. Further, the display supports Dolby Vision, 120Hz refresh rate and HDR 10 for better picture quality.

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible.

Both the high-end iPhone models get an upgraded display panel which Apple is calling "Super Retina".

In terms of price, the iPhone XR retails for less than the iPhone XS, costing $749 to pick up at launch. Further, the rear wide-angle lens, True Tone flash, and True Depth camera on the iPhone XR are identical to those found on the iPhone XS, so the only difference from a photography point of view appears to be the lack of the second telephoto lens.

The newest iPhones will result in no major change in sales volumes in the mature smartphone market, SMBC Nikko analysts wrote in a report following Apple's presentation.

The Apple Watch series 4 will go on sale from September 21st but you can pre-order it from September 14th. A single 12-megapixel camera resides on the back. Apple also emphasises on the Core ML framework that enables developers to use machine learning with 1/10th of the energy consumption and 9x the speed.

The range now starts with the iPhone 7 and is followed by the iPhone 8 and the new iPhone XS as well as iPhone XR models. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red.
