We present to your attention the next release of the Apple News information program. Today we will talk about the iPhone XR, the new Mac in Russia and much more!

1. Apple does not intend to abandon the iPad Mini lineup and may introduce the fifth generation of compact tablets in the very near future. Such a statement was made by mobile analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

2. The letters “S” and “R” in the names of the iPhone XS and iPhone XR are not abbreviations of any words as it was in the 3GS model, confirmed Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president for international marketing, in an interview with Engadget.

3. The iPhone XR turned out to be so popular among Russians that the first batch found buyers at the stage of receiving pre-orders. This follows from the materials of the Apple online store in Russia, where the delivery time for new items has shifted by two weeks.

4. A week before the presentation on October 30, which will be held in New York, Apple received permission from the Eurasian Economic Commission to sell several Mac computers. This follows from the database of the regulator, which published information on the evening of October 23. The identifiers of most of the models mentioned in the notification differ from those already available on the market, being a direct confirmation of the fact that Apple has prepared several truly new devices for release.

In total, according to ECE, Apple has registered 14 Mac models. Eight of them belong to the category of personal computers, and six – to the category of portable personal computers. An indication of portability is proof that at the presentation on October 30 we will be presented not only laptops, but also desktop solutions. It is possible that among them will be the new iMac and Mac Mini, which did not receive hardware updates for almost the longest of all the other models available in the range of the manufacturer.

It is only known that Apple is preparing to present a replacement for the MacBook Air with a Retina-display. Obviously, the model will become an enlarged version of the 12-inch MacBook. This will allow the manufacturer to finally abandon the development of the “air” line of branded laptops, which are outdated not only in terms of the hardware, but also in a design that is completely inconsistent with the general style of modern MacBook and MacBook Pro.

The upcoming Apple presentation will be held on October 30 at 17:00 Moscow time at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

AppleInsider.ru, as always, will lead the text translation of the event, which can be viewed on the live page .

5. The low resolution of the iPhone XR display, which some fans blame Apple for, in fact makes no difference to the perception of a smartphone in its use. This statement was made by Phil Schiller. This is exactly the case, the top manager stressed, when the quality of the product is indicative, not the numbers that characterize it.

The Liquid Retina display, which Apple equips the iPhone XR, is the best Retina display in iPhone history. The company’s engineers managed to achieve stunning saturation of colors and at the same time maximize the natural color rendition, which is so important for photo and video shooting and in many other usage scenarios. As for the pixel density, it still corresponds to the canonical 326 ppi, not allowing the naked eye to distinguish the individual points that form the matrix.

However, Schiller made it clear that saving on the components of the iPhone XR was a thoughtful and well-planned solution. Apple deliberately decided to reduce the cost of production of the smartphone in order to give consumers the opportunity to appreciate all the advantages of the frameless iPhone X for relatively little money.

6. According to the publication Forbes, citing its own trusted sources, iPhone SE 2 can no longer wait. Instead, Apple will focus on flagship devices, scheduled for release in September 2019. According to available data, the future iPhone line will not suffer any changes and will include three smartphones: iPhone with 5.8-inch OLED-screen, iPhone with 6.5-inch OLED-display and iPhone with 6.1-inch LCD matrix.

Thus, iPhone SE will remain the only truly compact smartphone of the company, which will still be relevant for a while. Due to the greater power reserve, iPhone SE will be updated for at least another couple of years, getting all the current builds of the operating system.

It is necessary to take into account that Apple has already stopped selling a compact smartphone in the official online store. And this means that those who were going to buy this phone should hurry. At the moment, the iPhone SE is one of the most profitable investments. In retail networks, a smartphone can be found for 15-17 thousand rubles for the version with a 32 GB drive, and about 20-23 thousand for a model with a memory of 128 gigabytes.
