cupertino - Apple knows how to keep getting weaker secrets. The Watch is now called Series 4 and three new iPhones were introduced. Exactly as in the past few days appeared everywhere in the media. In addition to the new version of the watch, the iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr will soon be on sale in the store.
The show at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, where all Apple fans are always eagerly awaiting, was traditionally opened by CEO Tim Cook. He kicked off with the Apple Watch Series 4.
The watch is still rectangular but completely redeveloped and designed to manage health in advanced new ways. The display is more than thirty percent larger and seamlessly integrated into the thinner, smaller case, while the new interface offers more information and details. New is an electric heart rate sensor that can make a heart movie (ECG) and the app that makes a neat report in pdf for your doctor.
The watch is available in two sizes, 40 mm and 44 mm. The speaker is 50 percent louder and optimized for phone calls and the microphone has a different place to reduce echo. The chip (S4) is also new and delivers twice the current speed without affecting battery performance.
The watch also has fall detection. By analyzing the trajectory of the pulse and the acceleration, Apple Watch gives the user a warning after a fall, which can be ignored or used to call the emergency services. After sixty seconds of motionlessness, the emergency services are automatically called and a message is sent to emergency contact persons with the location.
Apple Watch Series 4 (GPS) is available from € 429. The watch with eSim is not yet available in the Netherlands, because the providers in the Netherlands do not yet offer this.
There are three new iPhones on the market. Two more expensive copies (Xs and Xs Max) and the cheaper Xr. All are mathematicians and have built in the new A12 Bionic chip.
