Apple has announced a new version of its smartwatch during the "Gather Round" event in Cupertino.
The chip has 6.9 billion transistors, is an Apple-designed 6-Core CPU, and is much faster than the previous iPhone chipset.
These features will be available to United States customers later this year, but Apple did not say when it would make it to the rest of the world. With Bollywood memes and dash of desi humour, these relatable jokes have left everyone ROFL-ing. The iPhone Xc or Xr is also expected to feature an LCD screen, opposed to the OLED displays on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max. Although it features only one camera, iPhone Xr does come in a pleasant variety of colors; black, yellow, coral, white, blue, and red.
You can pre-order the iPhone Xr beginning October 19 and it will ship on October 26.
As rumors anticipated, the new models ditch the home button in favor of the iPhone X's edge-to-edge display with Face ID facial recognition replacing the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. So here we are, September 2018 and Apple hasn't missed a beat in introducing the new iPhones at Apple's new campus at the Steve Jobs Theater.
The new XR will start at £749. Apple has also made the Breathe app into a watch face for easy access and other watch faces include a fire, water, and vapor dynamic watch faces.
Both phones will have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras as well as a 7-megapixel front sensor. The company also made mention that the phones are made from surgical grade stainless steel. "The larger 6.5" will go by the name of iPhone XS Max. While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display.
Apple announced that the next version of iOS will be available to download from September 17.
Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are available in three storage variants. A breakthrough 12MP camera system with Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, enhanced bokeh, and all-new Depth Control. Instead of the impressive IP68 dust and water resistance rating that the XS range has, the iPhone XR will only have IP67, which is an global scale judging how water or dust resistant something is.

This model will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB options starting at $749 United States dollars.
