Apple presented today three new smartphones (iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max) and an Apple Watch 4 smartwatch.
All three new Apple smartphones are somewhat related. They use the same processor - octa-core A12 Bionic with the Neural Engine system, i.e. the mechanism of artificial intelligence. The chip has an improved ISP processor, 50% faster graphics and 15% faster cores compared to the previously used chip, while consuming up to 50% less energy. All three new iPhones feature the improved FaceID face recognition system and identical selfie cameras with a resolution of 7 megapixels and f/2.2 aperture, using the FaceID sensor to measure the depth of the image, helpful blurring of the background. The camera also records movies in Full HD at a rate of up to 60 fps.

All models have a three-axis gyroscope, accelerometer, proximity sensor, and lighting and barometer. There is a Lightning connector, there is no minijack, but there is new - DualSIM Dual stand-by, but using the nanoSIM card and e-SIM. Only Chinese versions will be able to support two physical nanoSIM cards.
