The biggest announcements from Apple's iPhone Xs event

The biggest announcements from Apple's iPhone Xs event

The new budget-friendly iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch LCD display, 12MP single-lens camera, and is powered by Apple's latest A12 chip. It's certainly the cheapest way to upgrade from an existing iPhone to an iPhone XS, given that most of the other trade-in offers only get you $300 off the retail price. Available in six colours and storage capacities of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB, you can get your hands on the phone by paying $749.

Compared to the Apple A11 chipset that powers the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the hexa-core A12 offers almost 33.3 percent increased performance, doubled GPU score, 50 percent improvement in UX score and around 20 percent improvement in memory score because of which the iPhone XS has managed to achieve such an impressive benchmarking score.

For now, it's a race between Apple and Huawei to see which of the two companies can be the first to launch a commercial 7nm SoC: Huawei's Kirin 980 will appear in its first device at some as-yet unspecified time in October, while the new iPhone models featuring Apple's A12 Bionic are scheduled for launch on October 26th with pre-orders opening on October 19th. Let's break down Apple's new iPhone release dates. However, the amount of RAM present inside the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR have been recently revealed through their AnTuTu and Geekbench listings. With an IP68 rating, the water resistance has also improved considerably.

3,677 sex abuse cases in German Catholic Church
More than 3,600 children in Germany were assaulted by Roman Catholic priests between 1946 and 2014, a leaked report has revealed. The Kentucky Attorney General wants to launch a criminal probe into allegations of Catholic clerical sex abuse.

The iPhone Xs features 4 GB of RAM and so does the iPhone Xs Max smartphone.

The bigger question is whether you consider the iPhone XR's $750 a reasonable price for a new iPhone that isn't its top flagship. The XR has a 6.1-inch screen, which lands it right between the XS and XS Max in terms of size.

For example, you can pay for an iPhone XS and receive an iPhone 8 free of charge.
