What is eSIM? Here's how Apple's new dual SIM tech works

Apple debuts 6.1-inch LCD iPhone XR, coming in October

The affordable model iPhone Xr instead comes with 3 GB of RAM just like the original iPhone X. Coming to benchmark scores, Geekbench highlighted a very high result in single-core performance for the iPhone Xs Max: 4813 points, that is much better than the previous generation, while there is just a slight difference in multi-core performance with 10266 points. The iPhone 7 launched for$649 two years ago, and the iPhone 8 cost $699 12 months ago.

The company said the new iPhones would start at USD 750, USD 1,000 and USD 1,100. iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, September 14 and in stores beginning Friday, September 21.

Predictably, folks on Twitter did not greet the news favorably.

Yesterday, as all the leaks foretold, Apple released three new iPhones. $999 is what the iPhone X cost last year and no one really expected it to be any different this year. "iPhone X would hurt product brand value & lineup of 2H18 new models if it continues to sell at a lower price after 2H18 new models launch", he wrote in a research note, according to MacRumors.

Moving on to the iPhone XR's screen, TechRadar's Gareth Beavis reports that it is a 18:9, 6.1-inch LCD "Liquid Retina" panel, which is cheaper to make than the OLED panels fitted to the iPhone XS and XS Max. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 starts at £599/$599 and the 8 Plus is reduced to £699/$699. Most surprisingly, despite including only a single wide-angle lens, Apple has managed to bring Portrait Mode to the iPhone XR by using the A12 ISP and Neural Engine to create depth segmentation maps.

Google releases an improved headphone jack adapter with better battery life
The store listing, however, says that it works best with "Pixel and other devices running Android P or higher". One would think that a USB Type-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter is pretty simple.

Hurricane Florence Could Bring Up To 30 Inches Of Rain To Carolinas
On Thursday morning, South 17th Street, usually teeming with commuter traffic by 6:30 a.m., was almost devoid of cars. It's already been raining in these areas and the ground is sodden. "It will probably fall faster than it can leave".

Florence Moves Toward the Carolinas
The National Hurricane Center says that a life-threatening storm surge could hit Southeast Virginia as early as Tuesday morning. Many newcomers have moved to the coast in the almost 19 years since the last strong hurricane - Floyd - threatened the area.

Some specifications of Apple devices never get formally announced.

We're also going to see Beats' Solo3 Wireless in "satin gold" and "satin silver".

This has led to the iPhone XR being variously described as "cheap", "entry-level", or the "budget" iPhone for this year.

Therefore, if you were in love with the smaller 4-inch compact form factor or don't want to part with the headphone jack on an iPhone, you can try your luck with the SE and 6S till stocks last.
