Apple Unveils New iPhone XS—Do Agents Need One? |

Apple kicked off its September 12 iPhone event with the unveiling of the Apple Watch Series 4, which offers a variety of upgrades and new features.

"We're thrilled Apple Watch has become an essential part of people's lives", said Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer.

Apple Watch Series 4 will begin at $399 United States for the Global Positioning System model, and $499 USA for the cellular equipped model. The iPhone Xs has a 5.8-inch OLED with 2,436 by 1,125 pixels and the iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch OLED with 2,688 by 1,242 pixels.

What's more, the latest watches can also automatically detect a spill and summon help if you're immobilized or unresponsive.

The increasing popularity of the watch, which Ive has set up as the cornerstone of wearable technology, is critical to Apple as the iPhone sales growth wanes.

All three handsets also feature a new 7MP True Depth front camera. Home buttons were replaced with screen swipes, taps, and facial recognition capabilities.

We've got your chance to bag a brand new iPhone XS Max, and you get to support Make Some Noise, too! Analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights & Strategy said Apple had done enough "to keep its smartphone growth going until the competition responds". The latter won't launch until October 26th, while the other two models will be released on September 21st.

Crypto's crash just surpassed dot-com levels as losses reach 80 percent
There may be optimism in some parts of the market, but this selloff confirms that the progress is not likely to be smooth. This comes after the second-largest virtual currency Ether fell 6% to United States $ 171.15 on Wednesday, in NY .

The Series 4 watch with watch OS 5 includes revolutionary health capabilities, including a new accelerometer and gyroscope, which are able to detect hard falls, and an electrical heart rate sensor that can take an electrocardiogram (ECG) using the new ECG app, which has been granted a classification by the USA federal agency Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The Galaxy Watch is constructed out of polished stainless steel, and covers its display in Corning Gorilla Glass DX+ (which is said to improve scratch resistance by 85 percent compared to the Gear S3). So, on one level that certainly sounds promising for a product that Apple is trying to position as "an intelligent guardian for your health".

-ECG: Through the Watch app on the iPhone, and the electrical heart sensor on the new edition of the watch, you will be able to generate an ECG (electrocardiogram) by placing your finger against the watch's Digital Crown. The experience is supposed to take about 30 seconds, with the ECG classifying the results as either a normal "sinus rhythm" or AFib. The new accelerometer has "fall detection", so it can tell if you have taken an accidental spill (be it by slipping on a banana peel or tripping over a curb).

If an irregular heart rhythm is detected, participants in the study are notified through the Apple Watch and on their iPhones and offered a free consultation with a study doctor.

In the development of new features of smart phones, Apple has relied on technology of facial recognition Face ID, and Samsung - on the thumbprint scanner in the display, which appears only in Galaxy S10 in 2019.

Apple says it monitored some 2,500 people - measuring how they fell off ladders, missed a step while walking or got their legs caught in their trousers while getting dressed. The Series 4 can use the old Apple Watch bands of previous models, so users that already have a collection built up won't have to start from scratch.
