Apple exec Phil Schiller has still called it the most advanced LCD display in a smartphone, dubbing the 6.1-inch screen as "Liquid Retina".

"Fall detection is a feature we hope you never need, but it's really nice to know it's there", said Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams. All while retaining an overall design that's roughly the EXACT same size as old 5.5-inch iPhone 6/7/8s Plus models.

Apple has invited journalists, analysts, and tech industry figures to its campus on Wednesday for the launch of new iPhone and Apple Watch models. So here's a list of cases and covers and more for the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR.

With these features contributing to the lower price point on the Xr, the Xr does boast the same A12 Bionic chip found on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, while battery life is noted to be one and a half hours more per day than the iPhone 8 Plus. Its sides are also made out of aluminum, rather than stainless steel.

iPhone XR camera: What's the camera like on the iPhone Xr? If you could handle the iPhone 8 Plus you can handle the Xs Max.

You'll be able to pre-order the iPhone XR beginning Friday, October 19, and it will hit stores on Friday, October 26, in more than 50 countries.

Apple has bolstered the batteries loaded into each phone too.

The wild card in this year's launch is the iPhone XR. There will also be 128GB and 256GB models.

9to5Mac Images of the iPhone XS and XS Max were leaked earlier this month. It's missing a home button and is activated by swiping.

Nintendo Switch Online finally has a concrete launch date
A family plan serving up to eight Nintendo accounts will be priced at $34.99/€34.99 for twelve months. Nintendo UK's tweet also mentioned that there will be a seven-day free trial to begin with.

Three new variants of the iPhone were announced, all in different sizes.

Yes and no. It's still an LCD panel, unlike the iPhone XS, which uses and OLED screen.

Also for the first time, because Apple is allowing its stream to be played on other platforms, it will be available on Twitter. That means saying goodbye to the iPhone's "chin and forehead" look that had become associated with it. Apple also shared that the second wave of shipment will begin on September 28. Still, that "cheap" price will cost you in the long run as far as features are concerned.

Pricing. Taking the price of its flagship iPhone to almost $1,000 past year helped Apple squeeze more revenue out of the device even though unit sales remained flat.

Is there anything new with Face ID or the TrueDepth camera?

The single-lense camera supports portrait mode, Smart HDR, and dynamic depth of field, just like the Xs and Xs Max.

What if I don't want to buy a new iPhone? It's a "6-core CPU", with two performance cores and four for efficiency.

Core ML is now 9 times faster, and uses 1/10 the power compared to the iPhone X. Real-time machine learning is used for augmented reality tasks such as Memoji, Animoji and movie replica scenes.
