Apple Watch Series 4 was one of the highlights of Apple’s Special Event today, broadcast live from the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, CA. The new version of the popular Apple Watch, which Apple noted was now the number one watch in the world, period, has a veritable treasure trove of new design and feature ideas meant to help make life easier and safer for anyone who uses it.

The new watch, aside from rocking a few aesthetic and performance improvements, amazingly has a series of new heart-centric health features meant to keep its users more aware of their physical health. The watch will be able to utilize new features that will help assist it with screening the wearer’s heart rhythm for any abnormalities that may be related to conditions such as bradycardia, tachycardia (slow or fast heartbeat) or even atrial fibrillation, which is essentially an irregular heart rhythm.

Perhaps astonishingly is the new addition of the electrocardiogram (EKG) feature, which will allow users to perform an EKG directly from the Apple Watch. This will mark the first consumer-grade EKG that’s ever been available to consumers without having to visit a clinic to have the procedure performed. What’s more, Apple has been cleared by the Food and Drug Administration to have the Apple Watch Series 4 classified as a medical-grade device in this manner. Users can open an app on the watch, place one finger on the digital crown dial, and measure their EKG in seconds without having to go to the doctor’s office or pay expensive testing fees.

To that end, the watch has also implemented a new fall detection feature, which lets the watch figure out if you’ve taken a nasty tumble, and can automatically call 911 or a predetermined number for you if you remain unmoving for over a minute after falling down. This will be especially useful for those with limited mobility or elderly parents or other family members in the home.

Major changes have come to the Watch’s physical form, too. The screen is now almost edge to edge, with a new larger display in both 40mm and 44mm sizes. The display itself has become 30% bigger, and there’s more to watchOS as a result. The new UI has been altered so that it really makes use of the bigger display screen. There’s also a new watch face with eight built-in complications.

The watch’s overall body has been altered in meaningful ways as well with the digital crow now including haptic feedback and a special LTE ring indicator that flashes red when looking for service. It’s also significantly louder than it used to be, with an improved speaker. Finally, the back of the watch features a sapphire crystal and black ceramic with the electrodes that allow for the aforementioned electrocardiogram recordings to be done.

The battery may have remained the same, but this is clearly overall the most feature-packed Apple Watch yet. Best of all, you can continue to use the same bands from your previous models if you don’t feel like purchasing a new one. There are new gold and stainless steel finishes to choose from, and it’s all going to be releasing a lot sooner than you may have expected.

The Apple Watch Series 4 goes live to preorder on Friday, and it will begin shipping on September 21, starting at $399 for the GPS edition and $499 for GPS + LTE versions. If this is one Apple device you’re interested in snapping up, you’d better go ahead and get that preorder in, as this one will undoubtedly sell like hotcakes.

Doubtful moment professional repair found too many tiny screws. By cons, they took the fact that some of the cables are soldered directly to the single system S4, and is not captured through connectors. In fairness it should be noted that the case is not enough to make the split all the connections. In addition, fixation at the level of the printed circuit Board is impossible because of features of the S4 (monohull system is filled with epoxy resin).

Ireland got Apple’s 14.3 billion euros

In August 2016, the European Commission came to the conclusion that Apple has received in Ireland the unfair tax breaksthat result in underpaid a substantial sum — more than 13 billion euros. Apple and Ireland tried to appeal the decision, insisting that taxes complies with Irish and European legislation.

However, as a condition of consideration of appeals was putting all underpaid according to the Commission the amount on Deposit. Where then will this money — back or Apple will go into the coffers of the European Union depends on the outcome of appeals.

According to the source, Ireland has just received a EUR 14.3 billion. In addition to the arrears, this amount includes interest in the amount of 1.2 billion euros. The corresponding agreement was reached about a year ago.

Because the proceedings can take several years, Ireland has appointed investment managers, whose task will be to maintain the disputed funds from depreciation. This is to be achieved at the expense of investment solutions with low risk.

The Ministry of Finance of Ireland said that his appeal got priority and passes through the various stages of a private written proceedings in the Main court of the European Union (GCEU), the second largest court in Europe. Meanwhile, the European Commission intends to cancel the claim against the Republic of Ireland, initiated last year due to delays with the refund.

Apple’s Sexy New iPhone Lineup Includes XS, XS Max, and XR

Although the names of the new iPhones had leaked out earlier, giving us some time to prepare for their ridiculousness, let’s all take to a moment to really appreciate the absolute nonsense Apple expects us to call its new mobile lineup. We’ve got the iPhone XS and iPhone XR, pretty reasonable given Apple’s past history of upgrade names. But now we’ve also got the iPhone XS Max, which sounds like nothing less than a Championship Edition fighting game re-release. And that’s on top of the fact the “X” is supposed to be said like “ten.”

That gaming comparison is apt though because instead of completely reinventing their smartphone offerings, this is the year where Apple doubles down to improve what they already have. And while they may not be as radical a change as the iPhone X was last year (or bring back highly requested features like normal headphone jacks) these new iPhones do present their own unique improvements.

While going over the relevant details from the Apple event, it’s actually crazy to realize how much of these new iPhone plans were rumored as early as this February. I was even thinking about using the same XXX moonshine joke. We were told to expect three new iPhones: a new X, a bigger X, and a cheaper X. And that’s precisely what we got.

The iPhone XS ($1,000) mostly resembles last year’s model, with its 5.8-inch edge-to-edge display and now-familiar FaceID camera notch. The iPhone XS Max ($1,100) ups the screen size to a whopping 6.5-inch display with a 2,688 by 1,242 resolution. The phones resist liquids like salt water and beer, and can allow for dual SIM cards for when you just need two phone numbers at once.

Whichever you pick (on September 21) you’ll also enjoy the benefits of the new A12 Bionic Chip and its five trillion operations per second. That computational power allows for neural learning in apps that assess your basketball shots, place your selfies inside movie scenes, let you play augmented reality versions of Galaga as well as the upcoming Elder Scrolls Blades from Todd “The Boy” Howard himself. That power allows for very impressive camera tricks, too, like adjusting depth of field in a photo after the fact.

Many of these benefits also found their way into the iPhone XR (October 26), which starts at $750 instead of an exorbitant $1,000. There’s only the one screen size, 6.1 inches of LCD instead of OLED, and the phone’s body is made of a durable but cheaper aluminum and glass combo. However, the XR is still part of the iPhone X family, complete with its physical home button swapped out for “haptic touch.” Plus it comes in brighter colors like yellow and blue and coral.

Last year’s iPhone event was a bit strange because after announcing the iPhone X after the iPhone 8, Apple had already made one of its phones look out of date before it had even released. But this unified year, although the phones vary in price and specs, the only new iPhone you can get is an iPhone X of some sort. This is the $1,000 future.
