Kendall Jenner Gets Civil Restraining Order Against New Alleged Stalker
On Thursday on Twitter , the supermodel fired back at the publication for allegedly releasing the exact location of her house. TMZ reports, the 37-year-old suspect is accused of repeatedly trespassing on Kendall's property.


Apple, for its part, released a pair of iPhone XR videos to its YouTube channel today in honor of preorders getting started to hopefully, well, make you lust after the phone even more. Friday October 26 is the date to circle on your calendar in that regard, and that's when you'll start to see the iPhone XR on the physical shelves of phone and electronic retailers, too. After pre-ordering the device, buyers will have to pay the full amount once the device goes on sale in India. It is a touted as the most advanced LCD in a smartphone. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been available for a few weeks now with some pretty expensive price tags in the country. It has an aperture of f/1.8 and comes loaded with optical image stabilization, a 6-element lens, focus pixel with a quad LED truetone flash, among other features. Improvements to the ISP, Neural Engine and improved software algorithms enable portrait photos with a attractive bokeh effect. However, Apple still provides Portrait Mode with digitally-applied bokeh on this phone by using the same single-camera sorcery that Google did with the Pixel 2 previous year. This setup supports FaceID for unlocking the phone. Now the spotlight turns to the iPhone XR. It only has a single instead of a dual camera on the back, the screen is LCD instead of OLED, the frame is aluminum instead of steel, there's no 3D Touch and (according to this filing) it has less RAM memory than the XS. Like its 2019 siblings, it's powered by the A12 Bionic chip.
