Customers using the app mark the location of the Apple Store they're outside.

But thanks to Chinese tech regulator the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the gaps in Apple's specs for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR have now been filled.

"The iPhone XS and XS Max follow in the footsteps of S-year iPhones - they're faster, with better camera hardware ... but except for dual SIM support, there isn't a brand-new feature like Touch ID or 3D Touch this time", CNET's Scott Stein said.

Along with this big display, Apple has tucked the new A12 Bionic processor under the glass and metal body. The iPhone Xr will go on sale later in the year.

Speaking of batteries, the XR can be charged wirelessly via a standard Qi dock.

At the event, Souza marvelled over the Portrait Mode capabilities that let you adjust the focus point (blur) of a photo after you've taken it.

Fortnite's Port-a-Fort is Getting a Legendary Upgrade Soon
As the Port-A-Fortress is not yet in-game, several users have been creating mock-ups of what the pop-up castle could look like. The stadium houses walls decorated with damage traps and bouncers, and it can be magicked up in an instant.

Selfies also get this threatment with Portrait mode on the front-facing TrueDepth camera.

The 5.8-inch screen iPhone XS features a 2,658mAh battery and 4GB of RAM.

"The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six handsome finishes". "And so if you look at even the phone that's priced over $1,000, most people pay about $30 a month for it". While the host doesn't really speak to how easy or hard it'll be to carry out DIY repairs on the new iPhone, the video certainly suggests that performing your own repairs won't exactly be a walk in the park.

Apple made a big mistake by removing its smallest and most affordable iPhone from its lineup. The 64GB storage model is listed at Rs. 99,900, 256GB storage variant at Rs. 1,14,900, and 512GB storage version at Rs. 1,34,900.

There's three options to choose from with a 64, 128 and 256GB of storage all available at launch. Pricing starts at $999, $1,099 and $749, respectively.
