Apple reveals iPhone XR which offers flagship tech at an entry level price

Apple has already revealed two new versions of the iPhone this evening – but it went further with a third handset. Many hardcore tech fans had seen this coming as Apple looks to fight off competition from the likes of Samsung and Huawei. The brand new ‘iPhone XR’ is an alternative to the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max and has a few differences that make it slightly more affordable. The starting price for this new phone (with 64GB of storage space) is £749. There’s still the all-screen design with a notch at the top and no home button. But rather than using OLED technology, Apple has opted for a standard LCD screen. The new iPhone XR gets revealed by Phil Schiller (Image: Apple) This means the colour reproduction may not be as good, but it keeps the cost down.

But it does have the same A12 Bion..

Jonas revealed exclusively to Metro.co.uk that he’d seen the potential in Dua a couple of years ago and was in talks to work with her single, before Calvin got there first. ‘I was speaking to her before Calvin,’ Jonas revealed. ‘It was about a year and a half ago I was speaking to Dua about doing something. She was too busy at the time. ‘I did slide into her DMs and asked her if she wanted to do a collab.’ But before he got a chance to record their track, Calvin swooped in and nabbed her for himself. ‘[Calvin] did basically exactly the same as me.

Adrian Chiles has revealed how anxiety plagued his TV presenting career after being axed from his breakfast gig (Photo by Matthew Ashton/AMA/Corbis via Getty Images) Adrian Chiles has revealed how the ‘unbelievable’ stress of TV presenting left him with extreme anxiety. The 51-year-old says that he could hardly read from an autocue at the height of his mental health battle while off-screen, he was self-medicating with alcohol. Adrian returned to sports punditry after being ‘freed’ from the ‘unbelievably stressful’ pressures of making breakfast TV show Daybreak a success, but now says he began to over-think everything he did on-screen as a result. ‘Anxiety had begun to affect my work,’ the presenter told Radio Times. ‘There was actually very little to do in presenting the football, ask a pre-prepared question of each pundit, throw to a break – and the less there was to do, the harder I found it. Adrian and Christine Bleakley were dumped from ITV breakfast show Daybreak after just on..
