After announcing the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max at the Steve Jobs Theater, Apple also announced a third iPhone that will be the successor to the iPhone 8 from last year. It’s not called iPhone 9, but iPhone XR for some reasons.

The new iPhone XR is essentially an iPhone Xs with different screen and shredded features on offer. While the notch and edge-to-edge display are here to stay, Apple has opted for a 6.1-inch LCD display with a 1792 x 828 resolution at 326 pixels per inch. Of course, there’s a better name to it — Liquid Retina Display. The notch at the top inherits all the camera and sensors from iPhone Xs, meaning you can have all the front-facing features of the premium flagship on this affordable unit.

Inside the iPhone XR remains the 7 nanometer A12 Bionic; the same chipset that’s powering the high-end iPhone. While all these may seem overwhelming, the iPhone XR camera on the rear-end is a single-lens deal, unlike the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. However, Apple says it has tweaked the hardware and software to create bokeh similar to the higher models. It follows along a single 12-megapixel lens with OIS, Smart HDR, and Portrait Mode with Depth Control.

The iPhone XR is also Dual SIM compatible, just like the premium models, and features stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.0, and wireless charging. The handset comes in a wide range of colors, including Black, White, Blue, Coral, Yellow and PRODUCT (RED). It will be offered in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage choices, starting at $749 with pre-orders beginning October 19, followed by shipping October 26.

New details about the new iPhones have emerged from China. These are the details that Apple never shares during its keynote — some major tech specs that Android makers bragg about in general.

Regulatory filings from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (TENNA) have revealed the internal RAM and battery size on the latest iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR.

According to the documents, first spotted by China’s MyDriver, the iPhone Xs has a 2,658mAh battery, which is slightly smaller than the iPhone X’s 2,716mAh unit. Yet, Apple claims the handset will offer up to 30 more minutes of life than its predecessor.

The iPhone Xs Max has a battery with 3,174mAh in capacity, offering 90 more minutes of usage than the iPhone X in a single charge case, touts Apple. The more affordable iPhone XR is equipped with a 2,942mAh battery, promising 90 more minutes of usage against the iPhone 8.

As far as volatile memory is in question, the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max both have 4GB of RAM, while the iPhone XR has 3GB. For the record, last year’s iPhone X and iPhone 8 had 3GB and 2GB of memory, respectively.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max arrive in stores on Friday, September 21 with pre-orders open now. If you’re awaiting iPhone XR, then pre-orders open on Friday, October 19 with sales commencing the following week on Friday, October 26.

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ director Jon M. Chu shoots short film on iPhone Xs Max

“There’s a shot at the end where I’m rushing toward the garage–that’s using the built-in stabilizers. It’s pretty smooth.”

Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu has shot a short film entirely on the iPhone Xs Max. The two-minute-long film, called ‘Somewhere,’ focuses on dancer Luigi Rosado’s rehearsal space in 4K.

WIRED provided Chu with an iPhone Xs Max to test Apple’s best camera yet, with ‘zero equipment.’ Chu didn’t use any professional lighting or stabilizer, in fact, the video was shot handheld in a garage under fluorescent lights using the native camera app and stabilizer.

The video was edited on a computer without any color correction or post-production tricks, preserving the native iPhone Xs flare.

“I’m moving around a lot, and the focus was adjusting as I was moving, but it was finding the subject really well,” says Chu. “There’s a shot at the end where I’m rushing toward the garage–that’s using the built-in stabilizers. It’s pretty smooth.”

Chu says he’s going to upgrade to the iPhone Xs Max from the iPhone X, as the former is lighter than the iPhone 8 Plus, and doesn’t even feel like a Plus-sized phone.
