The microphone and speaker were both improved to enable better calling from your wrists, and watchOS 5's new "raise to Siri" feature, which allows you to skip saying "Hey Siri", means I'm using the digital assistant more than ever. It will feature a 6.1-inch LCD display with an "edge-to-edge" and "top-to-bottom" screen, thus limiting its bezel size.

The smartwatches are able to detect hard falls, and an electrical heart rate sensor can take an electrocardiogram. Apple iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED starting at Rs 76,900. And you can thank the iPhone 5 for it. But, the list also showcased something called eSIM. This time Apple has also given dual SIM support.

All three phones are equipped with Apple's latest mobile processor: the A12 Bionic chip.

A12 Bionic, it is claimed, is 15% faster than A11 processor, 50% more efficient, and provides a 50% boost to graphics performance. The rear camera now takes 4K videos at 60 frames per second.

Apart from unveiling the latest iPhone Xs range and the iPhone Xr, Apple also announced its next generation smartwatch, the Apple Watch 4.

Research firm CB Insights said Apple is at a "crossroads" a decade after introducing the iPhone. New iPhones shipping to Hong Kong, China and Macau will all have SIM trays that can hold two SIM cards each. The XR will have single camera 12-megapixel wide-angle lens. According to the company's claim, the displays supports wide colour gamut with colour management system. Apple used older LCD screen technology and aluminum, rather than stainless steel, edges. (There's a 7-megapixel, f/2.2 camera on the front.) Like the Google Pixel phones, the XR can do software bokeh or portrait mode; using iOS 12, it can also fool with the extent of the bokeh after the fact, blurring or sharpening the background of the image.

Russian Federation to Hold Largest Military Exercises in almost 4 Decades
Russia´s previous military exercise in the region, Vostok-2014, was nearly half the size, with 155,000 soldiers participating. The huge week-long exercise, called Vostok 2018 , is being held in eastern Siberia, and also includes the Chinese army.

Other camera features include Portrait Lighting, Animoji, and Memoji.

Bigger and a little less pricey: iPhone XR ($749).

The iPhone XR comes in an assortment of colors. Apple's dual SIM solution, in the United States, 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.

A new "Screen Time" tool generates activity reports showing how often people pick up their iPhones or iPads, how long they spend in apps or at websites, and numbers of notifications received. Coming to the pricing, the Apple Watch Series 4 with GPS starts at $399 while the GPS + Cellular model is priced at $499. The watch is powered by S4 chip. Add to that, the iPhones also pack an augmented reality feature.

The fall detection upgrade is expected to appeal to worker safety concerns in factories or other industrial settings, as well as to elderly or disabled users.
