The new A12 bionic chip is the most powerful chip in a smartphone. It delivers incredible performance and uses real-time machine learning to transform the way you experience photos, gaming, augmented reality, and more. That means faster Advanced Face ID – You can unlock your iPhone, log in to apps, and pay for things with a glance.
There is the dual camera system on both these iPhones that is faster and smarter. Leveraging multiple technologies — like faster sensors, an enhanced ISP, and advanced algorithms — Smart HDR brings more highlight and shadow detail to your photos. iPhone XS has even more sophisticated bokeh, or background blur, for stunning portraits. And all-new Depth Control lets you adjust the depth of field after you shoot. Power and Battery – Lasts up to 30 minutes longer than iPhone X.

Apple Watch Series 4

This watch has been fundamentally redesigned and re-engineered to help you stay even more active, healthy, and connected. It has curved corners for a larger, all‑new display to the architecture of the S4 chip. It is bigger without noticeably increasing the size of the case or compromising the battery life. Narrower borders enable a viewing area that’s over 30% larger. Curved corners precisely match the radius of the case, creating a more pleasing, continuous appearance. This also allows imagery and the touch surface to extend to the farthest reaches of the screen.

Apple Watch Series 4 inspires you to live a healthier life by helping you manage everything from everyday stress to calories burned. At the same time, it monitors your heart rate and lets you know if it detects something of concern. And that sense of security now goes a step further with fall detection and Emergency SOS. The new Apple Watch has your back — as well as your heart. Apple Watch Series 4 is capable of generating an ECG similar to a single-lead electrocardiogram. It’s a momentous achievement for a wearable device that can provide critical real-time data for doctors and peace of mind for you. Electrodes built into the Digital Crown and the back crystal work together with the ECG app to read your heart’s electrical signals. Simply touch the Digital Crown to generate an ECG waveform in just 30 seconds. This data can indicate whether your heart rhythm shows signs of atrial fibrillation — a serious form of irregular heart rhythm — or sinus rhythm, which means your heart is beating in a normal pattern.

With the new accelerometer and gyroscope, Apple Watch can detect that you’ve fallen. When an incident like this occurs, a hard fall alert is delivered, and you can easily initiate a call to emergency services or dismiss the alert. If you’re unresponsive after 60 seconds, the emergency call will be placed automatically and a message will be sent to your emergency contacts. Emergency SOS allows you to quickly get help. It calls 911, notifies your emergency contacts, sends your current location, and displays your Medical ID badge on the screen for emergency personnel. And Apple Watch Series 4 with cellular does it all even when you’re away from your phone.
