As I write this, it’s a little before 5:00 PM PST, or 8:00 PM EST, which means that on the other side of the globe the iPhone XS and iPhone XS have been on sale for a bit of time already.
Apple Watch 4
The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 are now officially on sale. The devices first went up for pre-order in major markets across the world on September 14.
Apple is working with Health Canada to bring the Apple Watch Series 4 ECG functionality to Canada. The ECG functionality in the Apple Watch Series 4 won’t be available at launch but it will make its way to customers in the United States via a future software update.
Early on Wednesday the reviews for Apple’s newest smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 4, went live (along with the first unboxing on video). It’s safe to say that the smartwatch has earned almost universal praise, thanks to the larger display, better battery life, and improved health-related features.
Apart from the first set of Apple Watch Series 4 reviews, the first unboxing video of the wearable is now also live on YouTube. The unboxing video shows how the packaging of the Apple Watch Series 4 has changed from previous versions of the watch.
A day after the first set of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max reviews went live, the first set of Apple Watch Series 4 have now also gone live. Compared to the iPhone XS series, the Apple Watch Series 4 offers a bigger leap in terms of design, performance, and functionality with its new edge-to-edge display, thinner chassis, and features like ECG.
Apple has started shipping out iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 for customers who pre-ordered it. The company has not updated the order status on its website but customers in the United States can use their reference number and head over to the UPS website to track their order.
Apple Watch’s first true redesign is here. The Series 4 Apple Watch takes everything that made the Series 3 Watch great and makes it better. It’s better at keeping you connected with your loved ones and for keeping you fit. If you’ve been using the Series 1 or Series 2 Apple Watch, a Series 4 upgrade makes sense. But what if you’ve just bought a Series 3 Apple Watch last year? Should you plunk down $400 or more to upgrade? Read on to find out.
It has been a few hours since Apple started accepting pre-orders for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Unlike the last time around, there definitely seems to be less interest in both iPhones probably because of the modest improvements they bring to the table and their high price tags.
Unarguably, the highlight of Apple’s ‘Gather Round’ event from earlier this week was the Apple Watch Series 4. Apart from a complete redesign, the new Apple Watch also comes with improved sensors for more accurate health tracking and it is also capable of doing ECG thanks to a new heart rate sensor.
