Also, since this codec is absent from Apple's mobile platform, therefore the company is yet to see its smartphone or tablet lineup in YouTube's Signature Device program whereas every HDR-toting Android device is casually walking those halls. While the iPhone may be the most popular smartphone on the market, many customers are unhappy with the choices Apple has made recently.

Analysts at Citi were also optimistic about Apple's newest batch of iPhones. Are you planning to use it without a protective case? "And that sense of security now goes a step further with fall detection and Emergency SOS". Then you're living dangerously. You can also do it if you have the activation code, by entering the required details manually.

Reuse selling guide: As the new iPhone models hit the shelves, more consumers than usual may be looking to sell their used devices.

Shipments of iPhone fell 40% in January-June from a year ago in India after Apple undertook a restructuring of its sales and distribution in the country as per the researcher.

The 6.5in iPhone XS Max, which has a larger battery, delivered a run time... That's only $3 more than the 5.8-inch OLED on the iPhone X. The labor costs, which include assembly at the Foxconn manufacturing plants in China, comes in at $24.50 per device, but this includes testing and supporting materials. The XS emerged as the victor, though 'the performance of the other contenders wasn't significantly worse, especially considering the kinds of tasks consumers typically perform with their phones.' In terms of displays, CR points out 'there's no discernible difference between the published specs for the displays on the X, XS, and XS Max.' But because the XS Max has such a large display (6.5 inches) it can show a lot more detail than phones with similar specs.

Patients are evacuated from a hospital following a strong quake in Poso, central Sulawesi, Indonesia. "People ran out in panic". Indonesia lies on the Ring of Fire, meaning it suffers from dozens of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions each year.

Senior VP, Phil Schiller, said that the XS models contain the "most secure" facial recognition service yet. A12 Bionic helps apps launch 30 per cent faster. The phone is iP67 water resistant.

As noted by 9to5Mac, the iPhone XS Max has an accessibility feature that people loved on earlier iPhone models but that was missing from the iPhone X previous year: Display Zoom. The moderately little increment in cost regardless of the bigger screen measure was on account of Apple seemed to have evacuated a few segments identified with its 3D Touch System. "We have a brand new feature we call Smart HDR", Schiller said. With the new video quality option, compatible clips will be displaying the "HDR" label next to the resolution.

The Xs models range between $999 and $1,099 and are now available for pre-order. The iPhone XR has a single-lens glass-backed design and is available in a bunch of colors including red, blue, copper and yellow. "Each beautifully designed with that aluminum finish and glass on the back.". £1100 is a huge amount to spend on a phone, but the XS Max is good enough to justify it, particularly as it commands a premium of just £100 over the standard-sized XS.

According to, some Deutsche Telekom users are already able to use the eSIM feature in iOS 12.1 beta to add two SIMs to their iPhones.
