The things Apple forgot to announce at this year's keynote presentation

Apple appears to have leaked the names of three new iPhones on its own website Apple Watch Series 4 announced with larger displays

The strategy has been successful, helping Apple's stock to rise more than 30 per cent this year and making it the first publicly traded U.S. company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion.

When Apple introduced the iPhone X past year at a starting price of US$999, some analysts were skeptical that people would pay up so much.

United Kingdom mobile network O2 has announced that it will also be accepting preorders for the Xs and Xs Max from 14 September, with iPhone XR preorders opening on 19 September.

"They have finally added a larger-screen phone so that they can directly compete with the Galaxy Note 9 products", Gartner analyst Annette Zimmermann said at the event at Apple's Silicon Valley headquarters, referring to rival Samsung Electronics which has led the trend toward big-screen phones.

Topol noted that a similar product - AliveCor's Kardiaband, a band for the Apple Watch - offers EKGs and received FDA clearance previous year.

Of course, you could always grab a Qi charger from accessory makers like Belkin and Mophie, but you actually still can't wirelessly charge your AirPods with them: Apple hasn't yet delivered the earphone case that would support this feature, even though we heard rumors about it being on the way at the end of July. "I'll have to sell off both", joked one user on the platform.

Both models come in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB options.

The iPhone X is the blueprint for three new iPhone models comprised of the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr. Just like most other "S" updates, the difference between this year's phones and last year's model is mostly a spec upgrade.

Moreover, high tides around noon and midnight these next few days will make the storm surges even worse, Samson said. North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland governors have declared states of emergency.


With two of them starting at $999 or higher in the United States, Apple appears to be taking advantage of a strong U.S. economy, low unemployment, and rising household wealth. The median U.S. household income rose for a third straight year in 2017 to the highest on record since 1967 by one measure, United States government data showed on Wednesday.

Instead of an OLED display, the phone uses a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD display that Apple calls the "most advanced LCD in a smartphone". Apple also announced that watchOS 5 will start rolling out to supported devices on September 17.

It wouldn't be September without a big iPhone reveal event from Apple.

Apple unveiled new products on Wednesday, including a new iPhone and a new iWatch. "A lot of people have [abnormal heart rhythms] who don't have the symptoms". Williams said the new Apple Watch could help detect atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat), although he hedged that it won't "catch every instance".

Shares of fitness device rival Fitbit Inc fell 6.9 per cent after the Series 4 announcement on Wednesday.

But this time around each new model takes inspiration from the iPhone X, which means edge-to-edge screens and no home button. The beta for iOS 12 has been a bumpy one, so you might want to hold off for a week or so before updating your phone, as per usual with Apple's system updates.

Bloomberg reported in June that Apple engineers were encountering problems such as overheating while developing AirPower.

Wall Street has embraced Apple's evolution from a consumer hardware company into a more-diversified technology giant with an installed base of 1.3 billion devices supporting a growing roster of digital services.
