Apple touts its largest screens, cheaper models in iPhone revamp


The Cupertino-based company has positioned the iPhone XR as its budget offering and it comes with toned down specifications.

Apple has made a number of sweeping improvements to its Apple Watch, with more focus on health and fitness in Series 4.

The 5.8-inch iPhone Xs and 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max feature stunning Super Retina displays, a faster and improved dual camera system that offers breakthrough photo and video features, the first 7-nanometer chip in a smartphone - the A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine - faster Face ID, wider stereo sound, a attractive new gold finish and introduce Dual SIM to iPhone. Even the fact that Apple discontinued last year's iPhone X shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that the new iPhone XS seemingly serves as an entry-level option for consumers eager to pick up a new device without necessarily breaking the bank. However, it does contain TrueTone Face ID technology, allowing for automatic device unlocking and Apple Pay integration.

However, that's not all.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it worked with Apple to develop apps for the Apple Watch and has been taking steps to ease the regulatory pathway for companies seeking to create digital healthcare products.
