Apple announces new, affordable iPhone XR

The iPhone XR is Apple's third new handset this year, which makes a few compromises, such as an aluminium frame, instead of stainless steel, and only one 12-megapixel camera on the back. The iPhone XR, the most low-ranking member of Apple's expanding X family of devices, is exactly what the company needs to revive its sluggish smartphone sales.

At the launch, Tim Cook confirmed the names of the new models - which had been leaked earlier in the day - as iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, as well as revealing release dates for global regions.

What's different is that the iPhone XS Max takes size to the next level with a 6.5-inch screen, the largest display on an iPhone yet.

Despite the discounted option, Telsyte managing director Foad Fadaghi said Australian Apple fans were likely to accept the top iPhone XS Max's significantly higher cost this year, but warned that prices could not keep rising at their current rate.

Hollywood Legend Burt Reynolds Dies
According to the report , Reynolds died on Thursday morning at Jupiter Medical in Flordia, per his manager Erik Krtizer. Burt Reynolds , a familiar and charismatic star, producer and director whose career has spanned decades, has died.

Apple showed off the work of Bethesda studios, the maker of the game series Elder Scrolls, to show how powerful the iPhone XS's processor is.

The new piece of kit is 50 percent more energy-efficient and faster than the previous processor, with apps loading 30 percent faster, too.

In between the two cameras is an improved True Tone flash with an advanced flicker-detect system. It is also running on the new 7nm A12 Bionic Chip and it retains the same 12MP f/1.8 main camera that's assisted with OIS. The phone also records videos with stereo audio.

Apple will no longer provide the Lightning to 3.5mm adapter with the iPhone. However, there's only one physical SIM, while the other is an eSIM.
