Apple's Next iPad Pro To Ditch The Lightning Port For USB-C

But there will be the technology of facial recognition.

But overall, the price of entry to the Apple ecosystem has gone up. The iPhone XR will be available for pre-order starting 19 October and hits stores on 26 October.

Apple will likely hold another event later this year where it will announce a MacBook Air overhaul with a new design and higher-resolution display, a new MacBook Mini for professional users, and new iPad Pro models with FaceID and smaller bezels around the display.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the two premium iPhones and direct successors to last year's popular iPhone X. Similar to the iPhone X, the iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display.

Well, unsurprisingly for a brand that puts such a focus on design (and whose chief designer was flipping knighted) it's not an ugly device in any way.

While both the iPhone XS and XR will be water resistant, the XS line will be slightly more durable, able to withstand up to two meters of water resistance for up to 30 minutes. The new models are successors to last year's iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The new iPhone Xs has an upgraded OLED screen that Apple called a "Super Retina" display. To watch online broadcast will be on the official Apple website, only in Safari on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and also through the Microsoft Edge browser in Windows 10.

As a side note, none of Apple's new phones will include the adapter you need to plug a traditional pair of headphones into the Lightning port on the phones - a necessity ever since Apple eliminated the headphone jack in 2016.

You should be able to use your own 3.5mm-shod headphones with an adaptor - but we're hearing rumors that will be taken from the box this year, in a bid to cut costs, so we'll have to see if that plays out. Apple has become an industry leader in mobile silicon design and the new A12 bionic processor is a massive upgrade over the A11 Bionic chipset found in the iPhone X. Built on a 7nm manufacturing process and representing 15% jump in performance from its high power cores while being 40% more power efficient and 50% more efficient on the low power cores. The iPhone XR meanwhile, starts at Rs 76,900. That being said, it comes with something called liquid touch.

While AirPods at least showed up on screen, AirPower wasn't mentioned at all.

Apple is betting that an iPhone with its largest screen yet will lead to bigger profits, too.

This is really only an issue when using apps or watching movies in landscape, as that little notch at the top (housing the cameras, speaker and sensors) will get in the way when you decide to fill the screen with content.

The new XS models come out September 21, while the XR is out October 26. The iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max are replacing that unit. It works rather nicely, considering it's "faked".

Apple's "Gather Round" event also known as the iPhone event is scheduled for today, September 12.

It's a 12MP sensor on the rear, with the front packing the TrueDepth camera for facial unlocking and selfies, and while Apple didn't make a big deal about the functionality on stage it'll be equally as good as that seen on the iPhone 8 past year, which was far from awful.
