New Apple Watch To Detect Abnormal Heartbeats

iPhone XR price: How much does the iPhone XR cost?

Apple also announced a new iPhone XR starting at $749, available in October, with a 6.1-inch display to broaden its pool of buyers.

Read on to find out everything we know about the brand new iPhone XR.

That wasn't all, though - towards the end of the event, Apple revealed that it had one last trick up its sleeve: the iPhone XR, the company's newest budget smartphone offering.

Because of its bigger display size, the pixel density is lower at 326ppi which is on par with the regular iPhone 8.

Apple's new iPhone XR, XS and XS Max are, without a doubt, impressive devices with their faster processors, edge-to-edge displays and robust cameras.

Speaking of battery backup, Apple World's Wide Marketing Senior Vice President Phil Schiller has said that the iPhone XS's backup is 30 minutes more than the iPhone X. While iPhone XS Max will back up more than 1 hour from the iPhone X.

Moving to the camera, both the iPhones will have two 12-MP cameras one of which will be a telephoto lens and the other will be a wide-angle lens.

"The device features a 6.1" "Liquid Retina" all-screen LCD display (with Apple's signature notch), Apple's "most durable" glass to date.

The iPhone XR also gets dualSIM support. Pricing: $1899 (64GB), $2199 (256GB), $2599 (512GB). The story has also been updated to correct the history of Apple's GiveBack recycling program; it was highlighted at Wednesday's event but is not a new program. Pre-orders for the Apple Watch 4 begin on September 14, while shipping starts September 21.

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 front camera can also be used for Portrait Mode selfies. The three new iPhones have an average starting price of $949.

Appearing at the Apple event, Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, called the heart-monitoring features "game changing", especially the ability to detect an irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation.

They hit stores on September 21, 2018 with the iPhone XS priced at $999 (£999) and the XS Max a whopping $1,099 (£1,099). The A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine uses real-time machine learning to transform the way you experience photos, gaming, augmented reality, and more.

The screen sizes are 5.8-inch (458 ppi) and 6.5-inch (458 ppi), and come with Apple's 3D Touch technology and a faster version of their Face ID system.
