Apple unveils bigger iPhone, new Watch
NEW YORK (FOX5NY.COM) - Apple Inc. hosted its much-anticipated annual event in Cupertino, California, on Wednesday. CEO Tim Cook unveiled three new iPhone models (Xs, Xs Max, and Xr) and the Apple Watch Series 4.
"This is iPhone 10s--it's the most advanced iPhone we've ever created," Cook said in his keynote presentation. "With a super Retina display, advanced face ID, a breakthrough dual-camera system and the smartest, most-powerful chip ever in a smartphone."
The iPhone Xs has a 5.8-inch OLED screen. It so water-resistant to two meters for up to 30 minutes, and has up to 512 GB of storage, which could hold 200,000 thousand photos. It will come in a gold option and starts at $999.
The 10s Max is the biggest iPhone ever with a 6.5-inch OLED screen. At $1,099, it is also the most expensive model.
Both have better battery life and dual-SIM technology to let you have two phone numbers on one phone. You can pre-order the phones on September 14. They will ship on September 21.
The iPhone Xr has a 6.1-inch LCD and comes in 6 different colors. It is priced at %749 with an October 19 preorder date and an October 26 shopping date.
The technology of the new Apple Watch is more impressive than the iPhone's, especially in the health space. The Series 4 screen is 30 percent larger, edge to edge, and curved. It can detect when you fall, slip, or trip and make an emergency phone call with your location. It can also detect low heart rate and A-FIB, take an EKG, and has FDA clearance.
And for athletes out there, especially marathoners, the new Watch has 6 hours of GPS time. You can order it on September 14.
