Apple unveils premium iPhone XS, health features for watch

Share

Apple's online store is now offline in preparation for the influx of consumers pre-ordering Apple's new iPhone models and the new Apple Watch. It is a 6.1-inch LCD with 1,792 by 828 pixels. The larger watch pushes the screen to 1.78 inches with a resolution of 448x368. It is paired with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage for Bluetooth+Wi-Fi models, while the LTE models double the RAM and keeps the same amount of internal storage.

Apple and Samsung are famous for fighting over the top dog spot when it comes to the world of smartphones, but with the announcement of the Apple Watch Series 4 at the Apple Keynote early in September, we're seeing them square off for that prized position on your wrist. The Series 4 has become one of the highlights of the recently concluded Apple "Gather Around" event where the watch was publicly introduced together with the other latest Apple products.

Coming to the color options, it will be available in three Aluminum finishes along with a brand new Gold stainless finish and Silver and Space Gray options. It even has the same all-day battery life of 18-hours and an active outdoor workout life of 6-hours using Global Positioning System tracking. In either instance, it's still far less than what Samsung can achieve with the Galaxy Watch. While previous models of the said smartwatch have included a built-in monitor to measure a person's heart rate, they all only perform the usual task of tracking the heart rate. Though the latest models will be in stock and in stores on September 21, there's no guarantee your local retailer will have the exact model and style you want. It can also help you through your day with breathing exercises and can serve as a sleep tracker at night. But if you take into account adding function of mobile communication in a wearable device in 2017, will not be surprising that the company focus focus on new design in 2018. Moreover, the Watch's digital crown can read the elelctrical signals from your finger and generate an electrocardiogram.

If Apple Watch senses immobility for 60 seconds after the notification, it will automatically call emergency services and send a message along with location to emergency contacts.

Now that the dust has settled from Apple's event, and the Apple Watch Series 4's pre-order phase has begun, we can sit down and go through the various features of the device in question to understand how it'll look and run different to the Watch 3.

One of the most frequent criticisms we've heard about the iPhone X is that its 5.8-inch screen simply isn't big enough. This means that one can control the depth effect in photos after capturing the photos on the iPhone Xs Max .

The Galaxy Watch is a little more reasonably priced starting at £279/329 up to £299/$349.
