SAN JOSE, Calif. — Apple announced a family of three iPhones powered by a 7nm SoC enabling up to 512 GBytes of memory. The handsets range in price from $749 to $1,099, increase battery life by 30 to 90 minutes, and ship within two to six weeks.
The smartphones, and two new models of the Apple Watch, generally packed larger screens and upgraded chips in slightly smaller devices. None of the devices support 5G cellular networks, expected to start switching on later this year, but the handsets support Gbit/s data rates, an LTE capability that Qualcomm was early to support.
Apple’s 7nm A12 Bionic chip packs 6.9 billion transistors and is “the most powerful chip in a smartphone,” said chief executive Tim Cook.
