Apple Introduces $749 6.1-inch iPhone Xr

The iPhone XS right and XS Max are displayed side to side

Or skinny jeans? Unfortunately, Apple didn't update its 4-inch iPhone SE with a new processor and camera. The XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display, while the XS Max is larger, with a 6.5-inch display. A major highlight of the new models is support for dual-SIM and dual standby (DSDS), though this is implemented with an eSIM in place of the second SIM for most of the world, while China gets support for two physical SIMs in the iPhone XS Max. The 512GB Xs Max will retail at $1,499.

The screen sizes are 5.8-inch (458 ppi) and 6.5-inch (458 ppi), and come with Apple's 3D Touch technology and a faster version of their Face ID system. That gives the phone more visual real estate than similar-sized models.

At one point during Apple's keynote, three people demonstrating an augmented-reality game faced off while consumed by their giant screens, the ideal image for our binge smartphone times.

An afternoon recap of the day's most important business news, delivered weekdays. Meanwhile, the iPhone XS will cost the same as last year's iPhone X ($999). There's also a $749 Xr model, with an LED screen and a single-lens rear camera, instead of the dual lenses of the more costly models.

Seattle Storm capture third WNBA title after sweeping Washington Mystics
Despite that, the basketball legend has been trying her best to help her young teammates prepare for when she's no longer there. Hayes, in her seventh season after graduating from UConn in 2012, was a second-round draft pick by the Dream.

The XR on the surface looks every bit as nice as the XS and XS Max, but upon closer inspection in my hand I could spot the areas in which Apple compromised for cost reasons.

The demo was of a training app for basketball players called HomeCourt. It looks like it works well, too, though I didn't have much time to play with it. But that kind of real-time processing requires massive computing power, which the rest of us will find pretty useful when playing a favorite online game, or editing vacation videos. Apple's dual SIM solution, in the U.S., would enable someone to use AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile (but not Sprint) as their primary carrier while using any carrier that offers a SIM card as the secondary carrier. Yes, it's wider and thinner and has a rotating crown with haptic feedback, so it seems to "click" as you turn it. If you've been immobile for one minute after the fall, the Watch will automatically call emergency services and send your location to your emergency contacts, Williams added. It's Life Alert without the panic button.

Apple - like Google, Samsung and other big tech companies - has lately been talking up a newfound interest in digital health and limiting excess screen time. The Apple Watch heart monitor will now do long-term cardiac monitoring, warning when your heart beats irregularly. The latter feature has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the company said. Someone with a heart condition will be able to take an ECG at any time and relay the results to his or her doctor.

Could the third new smartphone in Apple's big unveil today be the most exciting? But a key part of making an educated purchasing decision is the price.
