Apple announces three new iPhones amid leaks

Most of the buzz is swirling around a rumored iPhone that is supposed to boast a 6.5-inch OLED screen, up from 5.8 inches on the existing iPhone X.

Customers bought the iPhone X, in November 2017, at the Apple Store on New York's Fifth Avenue. As expected, the phones will now come with up to 512GB of storage, up from the 256GB max on last year's models.

Apple will debut all three new iPhone models tomorrow at its special event in Cupertino, California, which kicks off at 10 AM PT.

Kuo also reiterates that the next iPad Pros, set to be made available in 11in and 12.9in models, will also be the first to feature Face ID, with Apple likely to ditch the physical home button in favour of its mug-scanning tech. It would be one of the largest mass-market phones on the market, measuring about an inch larger than the screen on Apple's current largest phone, the iPhone 8 Plus.

The company is in the unique situation of controlling the hardware and software in its mobile devices, with content for users required to go through its App Store that takes a percentage of revenue.

Social Media Shares Drop as Execs Take the Hill
Chief election commissioner O P Rawat told TOI that "EC's interactions with the three social media companies are complete". Sandberg committed to not doing business with China or other countries that conflict with Facebook's values.

As 9to5Mac reported ahead of the Keynote, the phone will feature a 6.1-inch, edge-to-edge LCD screen that Apple calls the Liquid Retina Display.

Shortly before this video was shared, a sketchy leak from Chinese social media site Weibo began making the rounds, purportedly showing off the SIM trays of several (if not all) of the possible iPhone Xr / Xc color options, including gold, red, black, silver, and blue-gray. The iPhone 7 will now start at $449, and the Phone 8 at $599. The XML file revealed the new upcoming Apple Watch Series 4 name as well as sizes of watch bands which are 40mm and 44mm. While the new Watch models are thinner, Apple says they also have larger screens, providing displays that are over 30 percent larger than those of the Series 3. Windows users can watch using Microsoft's Edge browser.

Apple Watches too. In fact, this smartwatch is the #1 watch in the world – including quartz and spring-driven watches! The watch, starting at $399, includes a snazzy new electrical heart sensor, which allows it to work as an electrocardiogram.

As for the Apple Watch, the sitemap files indicate that it's also due for a size increase with cases for the new watch apparently coming in at 40mm and 44mm versions, up from the 38mm and 42mm models now available.
