The Gather round iPhone event is expected to bring the introduction of the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, as well as the Apple Watch Series 4 and a 6.1-inch LCD ‘iPhone Xr.’
The Gather round iPhone event is less than 24 hours away. However, here are five things to watch out for during the event.
The iPhone Xr:
This is one of the most anticipated device Apple lovers are waiting for. This device, with a 6.1-inch LCD display, is expected to be more affordable than the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, perhaps priced around $699.
With the other Apple devices set to be more expensive and have more features, the language around the iPhone Xr – and how Apple markets it – is definitely something to keep an eye on later today. But what we do love about the iPhone Xr, is how affordable it should be for low income earners. iPhone Xr is likely to be priced around $699.
Face ID improvements:
Who else like me can’t wait see how Apple talks about Face ID during its event – and whether or not it touts any improvements with this year’s phones compared to the iPhone X? I’m definitely looking out for this just like you too.
The previous Apple watch series 3 has a top notch features. However, with the unveiling of Apple watch series 4 in few hours time, more features, improvement are there in our expectations to look out for. For example, we looking forward to see more improved battery life. For Apple watch lovers, this certainly something look out for at the event.
Apple Watch health upgrades – ECG?
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, who is an Apple insider and Apple analysts, he revealed yesterday that the Apple Watch Series 4 will support electrocardiography, or ECG.
Electrocardiography, for those who are just as unfamiliar as me, is described as:
The electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a diagnostic tool that is routinely used to assess the electrical and muscular functions of the heart. While it is a relatively simple test to perform, the interpretation of the ECG tracing requires significant amounts of training. Numerous textbooks are devoted to the subject.
Theoretically, ECG could be used to provide far more accurate heart rate readings –an improvement that Apple would obviously tout heavily on stage. On the other hand, ECG could be used to bring a new feature altogether to the Apple Watch. We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
Apple TV & Apple’s original content:
You shouldn’t expect to see much from this part anyway. But one final thing I’ll personally be watching for is any color on Apple’s clear and growing interest in original TV and movies.
While the Apple TV is unlikely to get much stage time tomorrow as a product, it’s certainly possible Apple could at least tease its interesting in creating original content.
In truth, over the past few weeks before this Apple big event day, there have been rumors, predictions and a whole lot over what is to be unveiled at the event. However, today is the day. So, let’s wait and see Apple unveiling the whole truth that we do not know.
