TECH BREAK: Apple unveils its first dual-SIM iPhone

TECH BREAK: Apple unveils its first dual-SIM iPhone

The iPhone XR and iPhone 8 both have a glass back and a metal frame, but from the front they look very different, as the iPhone XR has a notch in the screen and very little bezel.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will feature a larger screen, more than 30% larger than previous generations. The iPhone X model has a larger screen than other iPhones, covering nearly the entire face of the handset while retaining the overall handset size at or near that of previous models.

The technology giant announced three new smartphones - the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR - at its latest live event in California, promising fans that the new products are the "most advanced" the company has ever made.

Apple bills the iPhone XR as "the iPhone X experience in an LCD display".

But the arrival of the iPhone Xs and Xr phones reminds us that the deal will soon expire, and prices will go up after December 31st. The XS has the smallest physical footprint of the three, while the XS Max comes with an enormous screen of 6.5-inches. The A12 Bionic also has a 50% faster GPU and an improved neural engine.

Mr Cook said the updates took the iPhone "to the next level". The iPhone XR comes with a 12 MP, single rear camera.

The XR features numerous same specifications as the XS duo but has only a single rear camera, an LCD screen - unlike the XS' OLED - and starts at £749 when it goes on sale in October.

Getting more specific, the iPhone XR can apparently last for up to 15 hours of internet use or 16 hours of video, while the iPhone 8 is quoted as lasting for up to 12 hours of internet use or 13 hours of video.

Apple's new iPhones will start sales in India from September 28 onwards, with a pre-order date of September 21 onwards. For those of you who have been hoping that the prices of the phones would pale in comparison to last year's models, there is some disheartening news for you. The 256GB version will be priced at Rs 1,24,900, while the 512GB version is priced at a staggering Rs 1,44,900.
