How to watch Apple's 2018 iPhone keynote announcement - Stream, schedule, info

How to watch Apple's 2018 iPhone keynote announcement - Stream, schedule, info

The median United States household income rose for a third straight year in 2017 to the highest on record since 1967 by one measure, government data showed on Wednesday.

You'll have to wait a bit longer for the "budget" iPhone XR.

In fact, while its display is bigger than that found in any other iPhone model other than the Xs Max, the phone itself is actually smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus and previous plus-sized models.

For example, the top model of the iPhone XS, converted to dollars, costs $1,760 - a $411 difference.

And then there's the iPhone Xs Max, which is the closest Apple has ever come to full smartphone overkill. The Blue and Coral ones certainly stands out the most.

The iPhone XS and larger XS Max are Apple's latest flagship devices.

Although the iPhone X didn't fulfil analysts' lofty sales expectations, it fared well enough for Apple to up the ante with the bigger model, whose price is expected to unveil Wednesday. The iPhone XR is splash and water resistant and comes with a rating of IP67.

The iPhone XS features a 5.8-inch OLED display with 2,436 x 1,125 resolution and 458 pixels per inch.

The US Food and Drug Administration said it worked with Apple to develop apps for the Apple Watch. The fourth generation of the watch sees a major revamp in its specifications and the most visible external design change to date.

The iPhone XS comes in 64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB variants and starts at $999. Instead, it has an LCD screen.

And while the US prices make you think about getting a loan, wait till you see the prices in Europe and elsewhere. At least on paper. In real time, the processor in the iPhone instantly detects and displays performance metrics-the speed of the ball as it leaves the player's hand, the release angle of each shot, even the position of the player's legs.

Even the iPhone XR isn't that cheap in Europe. It still does the bokeh effect, but with the help of software. The images clicked on the iPhone XR we saw looked remarkably sharp and clear.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X. The front camera is a 7MP module. It starts at $1229, with preorders available October 19 for shipping on October 26. And it has the same A12 Bionic processor inside, so will support all the same new features. The cheaper phone also is expected to lose the home button.

The latest price increase for the highest-end iPhone makes it, for the first time, more expensive than the entry-level price of a MacBook.

The iPhone XS Max will sell for $1,249 in 256GB and $1,099 in 64GB configurations. We break down the pricing below. Apple has only just discontinued the 6s.
