What is the iPhone XR?
Apples 3 new iPhones include a new and improved version of the iPhone X, a larger model of the phone with a 6.5 inch screen and a successor to the iPhone 8 named the iPhone Xr that promises to be a little easier on our finances.
The camera on the iPhone XR has had one hell of a shakeup; there's a single camera system, which the company assures is the "best ever". Its sides are also made out of aluminum, rather than stainless steel.
What colors will it come in?
Core ML is now 9 times faster, and uses 1/10 the power compared to the iPhone X. The iPhone Xr, a cheaper version also announced on Wednesday, has a starting price of $749. And of course, it will run the same iOS 12 software. But that's exactly what the iPhone XR has managed to do at the 2018 iPhone launch event.
So is there no Home button on the iPhone XR?
Both feature Apple's Face ID facial recognition technology, which Schiller said was the "most secure facial authentication ever in a smartphone", and a redesigned rear-facing camera set up, consisting of a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 12MP telephoto camera.
What if I don't want to buy a new iPhone?While the former has an OLED display, Apple has opted for an LCD display for the latter. Certainly, games created to tap into the newly-more-potent GPU looked visually better than earlier iOS titles, though I suspect the extra turn of speed will be most valued in multitasking and combating the inevitable slowdown over time that all smartphones seem to suffer. That means saying goodbye to the iPhone's "chin and forehead" look that had become associated with it. The iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch (14.7-cm) screen, the same as the original Apple handset.
The iPhone XS and XS Max feature improved dual 12-megapixel cameras, with better True Tone sensors and fast 1.8 aperture lenses. We're talking some small upgrades on last year's iPhone X model (which at the time was billed as "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone").
Is there anything new with Face ID or the TrueDepth camera?However, the XR loses out on 3D Touch and relies on Taptic Feedback for launching the camera or the flashlight.
What should I know about the new A12 Bionic processor?
Low-cost phones could help put more devices in circulation to consume Apple's growing set of services like Apple Music, iCloud, and Apple Pay. Like its predecessor, it uses a combination of multiple high-energy processing cores for more intensive tasks, as well as multiple high-efficiency cores for light work like checking email and browsing the web.
Barely a year ago, Apple released its most expensive phone to date, the iPhone X. The pricing triggered criticism in some quarters. Real-time machine learning is used for augmented reality tasks such as Memoji, Animoji and movie replica scenes.
