(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. The mega event is scheduled to take place at the Steve Jobs Theatre on Apple Park premises.

Apple previous year began manufacturing some lower-end devices at a plant in Bangalore to avoid hefty import duties, but its top models like the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 are still shipped in from overseas. Thanks to narrower bezels around the display, it still has a similar case size to its predecessor.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X.

The popular portrait mode, which de-focuses the background of a photo to emphasize the subject, has a new setting.

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. The 6.1-inch features a bright LCD screen and comes in a variety of colors, including white, black, blue, coral and red. Home buttons were replaced with screen swipes, taps and facial recognition capabilities. But there are some new features: Screen Time, for tracking your time spent on your phone, better notifications (finally), and some fun new custom emoji called "Memoji". Made from aluminium and glass, and with an iPhone X-style edge-to-edge screen, it's halfway between the iPhone 8 and iPhone X. "The iPhone X came out". In India, the Apple iPhone XR will start at Rs.76,900 MRP. Now, for the first time ever, Apple will have opted for an even broader platform.

Rebutting allegations by some others, Akbar said: "Another accusation was made repeatedly by Ghazala Wahab , in an effort to damage my reputation".

The Apple watch Series 4 will be available to pre-order from September 14th at 3:01 pm, with shipping to begin on 21 September. It's a setting within the Screen Time menu where you can set a maximum time allowed for specific apps, or for a few grouped by categories, like "social networking" or "games and entertainment". It might also feature an integrated EKG that would help establish the health of the wearer's heart and identify cardiac issues early.

"iPhone X is therefore also a factor in Apple becoming the first trillion-dollar company", Counterpoint added.

But the Apple Watch still lacks one feature found in rival wrist gadgets: the ability to analyze sleep quality. "This update really establishes the company's increasing efforts to push the watch as a serious medical device", he said of Apple. The company will buy your old devices if they're in good condition or recycle them for free if they're not usable.

Jennifer Dudley-Nicholson travelled to Cupertino as a guest of Apple. It will cost much less than the Xs and Xs Max, predicted to be around $600.
