Got P59,000? Apple shows off its most expensive iPhone yet

14 September 2018, 08:40 | Randall Craig

Apple launches the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

The new phones have displays of 5.8 and 6.5 inches, boosting screen size while keeping a small-format handset, Apple vice president Phil Schiller said. (For a while, we used the icky word "phablet"- for part-phone part-tablet - to describe them.) But now Apple's largest bests even Samsung's Note 9, which measures 6.4 inches. On the top of the device is a notch which houses the front camera and the Face ID.

Making health a big selling point of the Apple Watch, Apple said the new Apple Watch Series 4 will not only be able to screen your heart rate, but will call for help if you fall. Customers can adjust the depth of field after they take the picture. "The smartphone's base model starts at $749, and comes in six surprisingly vibrant colors - white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and the oddly-named "(PRODUCT) RED". There's no home button on any of them - love it or hate it, Apple is putting the fingerprint reader permanently out to pasture.

The main camera gets two 12MP sensors on the rear, one wide angle and one telephoto. The device kills the 3D touch feature but added some haptic feedback, so the screen vibrates a bit in response to touch.

The iPhone XS Max, which will be available on September 21 - with orders open the week before - represents Apple's attempt to feed consumers' appetite for increasingly larger screens as they rely on smartphones to watch and record video and to take photos wherever they are.

While most of us were enjoying our recommended hours of sleep last night, Apple announced three new additions to their iPhone lineup - their latest, greatest, and verily, expensivest pieces of smartphones that fanboys will sell their firstborn for.




And Apple didn't stop at one iPhone this year: you'll have to choose between the Xs, the Xs Max (the Xs' bigger brother) and the confusingly named iPhone XR - a cheaper option if you don't fancy dipping into your rainy-day fund. From a hardware perspective, the XR has pretty much the same tech as the Xs and Xs Max. The iPhone XR will be coming to India in October, with sales starting from 26th October. The processor in the new iPhones is more advanced than any rival product, capable of the kind of heavy lifting once consigned exclusively to supercomputers.

Apple also showed off an upgrade to its 3-year-old smartwatch.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will feature a larger screen, more than 30% larger than previous generations, as well as a thinner body. The phone seemed extremely responsive and we found ourselves flitting between apps and other features without a moment's delay. The company says it's the first EKG available over the counter. The Max model looks to be about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, though the screen size is much larger.

The Apple Watch, which also has 18-hour all-day battery life (including 6 hours of outdoor workout time), will be available for pre-order on September 14 and go on sale September 21.
