From iPhones to the Apple Watch: all the new devices unveiled by Apple

From iPhones to the Apple Watch: all the new devices unveiled by Apple

The iPhones share some similar characteristics, including an edge-to-edge display, the lack of a Home and Touch ID button, and a Face ID from the camera system. Come launch, you'll be expected to fork over at least £1,099 for one and if you wanted the top-end configuration with 512GB of storage, be prepared to shed a hefty £1,449.

These launches follow last year's iPhone X - pronounced "ten" - that represented a major redesign. This includes features (Face ID instead of a fingerprint reader) and design choices (the notch).

Mr Cook said the updates took the iPhone "to the next level". And just like on the iPhone X past year, you'll now swipe up from the bottom of the display in order to return to your Home screen. The display still supports HDR10 and Dolby Vision, but the dynamic range has been increased by 60%.

Apple claims the XR will boast "all-day" battery life.

Both also get IP68 dust and water protection ratings, so they are waterproof up to a maximum depth of 2 metres for as much as 30 minutes. But it carries the same "TrueDepth" camera at the front as the other new iPhones, offering Face ID.

The selfie camera has been improved as well. The rear camera also features Smart HDR for better photos with more detail and color. There's also a new gyroscope and accelerometer that is paired with new software that can detect if you fall. The CPU is 15% faster and 40% more energy efficient. However, there's only one physical SIM, while the other is an eSIM.

The iPhone Xs, like its predecessor, has a screen that occupies nearly the entirety of the phone's frontage.

In comparison, the starting price point for the iPhone Xs is listed at $999 USD, while the Xs Max is just one hundred dollars more, $1,099 USD, both for the 64 GB model.

The iPhone XR will be available for pre-orders starting October 19th, while shipments will begin from October 26th in over 50 countries and territories, including India.

The fact that flexible OLED panels have passed Apple's tests doesn't necessarily mean a flexible/foldable iPhone will happen soon thought.

You'll be able to preorder the iPhone XS and XS Max here.

The chipset, too, is the same as on the iPhone XS and XS Max. It has a traditional, lower-quality screen and an aluminum body; it's physically smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus but has a bigger screen.

But that's all changed this year.

So just what is the Max like?

The phones are certainly impressive with upgrades across the board, from better cameras, more powerful 7nm A12 Bionic processor, up to 512GB storage on the XS and XS Max models, better cameras and so many more new features you can see at the specific iPhone pages linked above.

APPLE smashed all smartphone price records this morning, unveiling its biggest iPhone screen inside its most eye-wateringly expensive mobile phone to date. The older Series 3 Apple Watch has been priced at a new $279 which seems like a good price for someone who wants to buy the previous generation Apple Watch.

Apple says that it's allowing access to the Neural Engine through its CoreML API, and it brought forth the developers of HomeCourt, a real-time basketball tutoring app that benefited from the enhancements in the A12's AI accelerator.

By including the same high-performance chip found in the XS, the XR has will be capable of handling even the most demanding apps.

iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max deliver the highest quality video capture in a smartphone.
