The new iPhones are sickeningly expensive in Europe


The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are going to be available in the same three configurations: 64GB, 256GB and 512GB. According to 9to5Mac, the product page for last year's iPhone X mentioned AirPower and a release date of 2018.

Interestingly, in Singapore, the price for the 512GB iPhone XS Max is 2,349 Singapore dollars or $1711, making the difference only $262 - a far better deal than the price difference for last year's iPhone X.

It introduced the iPhone XS, 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Instead of an eSIM, the iPhone XR and XS Max in China will have a special SIM tray that holds two physical nano SIM cards. This model doesn't have the pressure-sensitive 3D Touch feature as its more expensive siblings, and its display screen contains a lower quality "Liquid Retina" LED display than the "Super Retina" displays. The price of the XR will start at $749 in the United States and €849 ($987) in Germany. Both watches will be available in three different silver, gold, and space gray aluminum finishes.

The device brings a design overhaul to the Apple Watch as the iPhone-maker is now using a new dual-core 64-bit chipset, custom created to improve performance.

A new Apple Watch and software with advanced heart-monitoring capabilities could boost the detection of abnormal heartbeats in millions of people, but it could also raise the chance of false positives, a cardiologist and researcher says. He said Apple has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for its new ECG app, and that the data will be protected by encryption on the Watch and in the cloud.

Dr. Ivor Benjamin, the American Heart Association president, came on stage to praise Apple's health efforts and said he was "inspired by the life-saving potential of technology".

As befits the hype, glitz and glamor of an Apple launch, the company revealed the details of its new smartphone models and a new smartwatch in Cupertino on Wednesday. For example, users can try out the new depth-of-field control image editing feature, which lets you bring the background of any given image in and out of focus after it's already been taken.

With the added feature, photographers can change how crisply a photo's background is displayed, so that they can better emphasize the picture's subject.

As Fortune's John Patrick Pullen noted via Twitter, camera company Lytro debuted a similar feature in 2012, but it didn't take off with consumers.

Alongside the smartphones, Apple showed off its latest iteration in the Watch series, which the company claims has been redesigned from the ground up.
