Apple event in 2018: 3 new iPhones and a new Apple Watch

Apple has just completed its fall 2018 event with three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch available for pre-order now. The rumors were rather true, but this should not surprise anyone.

The company also announced the release date of the next update iOS 12 macOS Mojave and the new version of tvOS that powers the Apple TV. We have read the news to bring you the most important and interesting elements. We will also examine what was missing at the event.

iPhone Xs

With the introduction of the iPhone X in 2017 ( our review ), it was logical that 2018 be a year s. In these cases, Apple traditionally refreshes the internal hardware rather than focusing on design refreshments. With the arrival of the iPhone Xs and its new big brother, the iPhone Xs Max, it's exactly what we got.

which means that you can dive them to a depth of about 32 meters for 30 minutes. Oddly enough, Apple only markets depth around two meters. But to achieve the IP68 index, the devices must comply with the requirement of 32 yards.

Camera, SIM cards and more

Apple has improved the technology of the new Xs and Xs Max. . They incorporate a higher quality image signal processor on the A12 chip, an enhanced quad-LED true tone flash, and smarter camera technology for better bokeh when taking portraits. Both models still feature the dual-lens system, with f / 1.8 and f / 2.2 apertures respectively on wide lenses and telephoto lenses.

A new depth control function allows to adjust the depth of field] after taking your picture. Meanwhile, Smart HDR seems to be lagging behind for better exposures with fewer inconsistencies. The iPhone Xs uses the same impressive OLED screen as the latest version. In addition, both models come with the Gorilla Glass 5 for displays twice as hard as last year 's model.

<p> In order to bring down the price, the Xr relinquishes the OLED display of the Xs model in favor of a new LCD" Liquid Retina ". Apple boasts that the display has the industry's best color accuracy, a wide range of colors, the same "tap to wake" seen on its OLED panels and the usual adjustment of True Tone temperature. </p>
<p> Edge to edge, there seems to be slightly more scope compared to OLED models. As this is an LCD and not an OLED screen, blacks will not be as deep. Just like the previous iPhone X, the Xr leaves the Home button behind. This is the first time that Apple has made its debut in the flagship product line. </p>

What We Did not See

The Apple AirPower Wireless Charging Station (announced a year ago) and a revised version of AirPods were blatantly omitted. No AirPods 2 also did not mean new Beats wireless headphones, although the rumor points to the end of 2018 as the release date for all these products.

<p> News on the iPads, especially on the iPad Pro, were also missing: Apple should update (or refresh) the MacBook Air, possibly introduce a new Mac mini and update some of its other Mac models before the end of the year, so we may be attending another event before the end of the year. </p>
