Apple Watch 4 release date, price, news and features

So if you are intending to upgrade to the latest device from Apple, make sure that you check your iPhone Upgrade account, as you might be required to make an early payment, prior to being eligible for a new phone this year.

The names were discovered buried inside the code that makes up Apple's official website, just hours before Apple's iPhone launch event. "Today, we're going to take iPhone X to the next level", said Tim Cook.

The Series 4 range will have an edge-to-edge screen like the new iPhones and is packing a bunch of features aimed at turning it into serious medical device.

The new top model is expected to have a 6.5-inch (16.5-cm) screen with an edge-to-edge display and be called the iPhone X Plus or Max.

The new iPhone comes with a massive internal storage of 512 GB (can store upto 2,00,000 photos). While the resolution, sadly, remains the same as last year's offerings, photos taken with the new phones will apparently have the potential to come out clearer due to the devices' speed. The phone itself is smaller than an iPhone 8, but it actually has a larger display.

It's rumoured that Apple has ditched the home button on this tablet with this allowing the United States technology firm to push the display closer to the edge and reduce those bezels. Both the iPhones will be available for pre-order starting September 14 and will ship starting September 21.

Trump poised to tax an additional $200B in Chinese imports
Meanwhile, Chinese state media have been pushing propaganda that Trump's trade war is aimed at containing China's rise. Trump continued, saying that "behind that there is another $267 billion [list] ready to go on short notice if I want".

Last year, the company got rid of the home button on the iPhone and introduced facial-recognition technology used to unlock the device.

Battery life on the iPhone Xs is pegged at 30 minutes more than the iPhone X, while the iPhone Xs Max features the biggest battery Apple has ever made and boosts longevity by 90 minutes.

Not only is the iPhone XS Max the biggest iPhone ever, it's also the most expensive. The 128GB XR is priced at $1,099, while the 256GB version is $1,239. The phones, which were accidentally leaked by Apple itself this morning, use surgical grade stainless steel and sport a new gold finish. Face ID is reportedly faster on these phones thanks to improved algorithms and a quicker secure enclave.

A second phone with a 5.8-inch OLED display, likely called the iPhone Xs, would be similar to the iPhone X but with an improved processor. Phil Schiller, the company's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, described A12 Bionic as "the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone".

The un-Apple-like move would see the iPad following in the footsteps of the MacBook, which ditched the firm's much-loved MagSafe chargers for USB-C ports in 2016.

Unlike the iPhone XS, this one comes in a variety of six different colours including: white, blue, yellow, black, coral and even a Product RED version right off the bat.
