The iPhone XS Max starts at $1.099, and will also be available for pre-order on September 14. It's exactly the same as the iPhone XS, only bigger, and with a slightly longer battery life.

The iPhone XS will start at $999 and the iPhone XS Max will start at $1099.

As well as the touch screen, the other important way to interact with your watch is via the Digital Crown and side button.

Speaking of which, let's talk about the not-so-headline-grabbing iPhone XR.

iPhone XR camera: What's the camera like on the iPhone Xr?

Weirdly, the cheaper iPhone XR has a larger screen than the iPhone XS - 6.5 inches vs 6.1.

"Apple is having to make a careful trade-off with these new products", adds Wood. Overall I found the new Apple Watch 4 a lot more attractive than its predecessors - though it's still a quite steep price point. (There's a 7-megapixel, f/2.2 camera on the front.) Like the Google Pixel phones, the XR can do software bokeh or portrait mode; using iOS 12, it can also fool with the extent of the bokeh after the fact, blurring or sharpening the background of the image. Instead of the stainless steel of the iPhone X, its housing is made of aluminum, and features a glass back to make wireless charging possible.

Nash showed off a version of the HomeCourt mobile app built for the new iPhones that can track a person's movements on a basketball court without the help of additional sensors scattered around the area.

David Wright Will Return to Mets for One Final Time and Retire
Wright added that it will be up to manager Mickey Callaway if he plays in any other games on the homestand. He will start that final Saturday (September 29) at third base against the Marlins.

The iPhone XR is the cheapest of the three, thanks to its removal of more than a few desired features. However there are new Android phones with similar or better specifications that sell for considerably less than the 2017 iPhone 8, and Android has a higher market share in Australia than iPhone.

This is the big difference.

The iPhone XR has essentially the same internals as the iPhone XS and XS Max-an A12 Bionic chipset with a six-core central processing unit, 4-core GPU, and 8-core neural engine. This is, though, the exact same unit as the wide camera in the XS. The newest iPhones range from $749 outright for the entry-level iPhone XR, which comes with an LCD display and less advanced camera system, to $1,449 outright for an iPhone XS Max with 512GB of built-in storage.

Then there are the colours - your choices are silver, space grey and gold for the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max.

Unlike the flagship models, it comes in a handful of new colors including white, black, blue, coral, yellow, and (PRODUCT) RED.

The XS model will set you back $1,629 for the 64GB model and $2,199 for the 512GB.

Tech analyst Patrick O'Rourke joined in, tweeting: 'I want to go on the record now as saying that iPhone Xs Max is a bad name for a smartphone...' Both have edge-to-edge screens, both have Face ID and Animoji, and both have the new X12 chip. Most folks keeping tabs on the brand were expecting updated AirPods, and at least some mention of the AirPower wireless charging mat that was previewed previous year.

"However, sourcing SIM profiles form multiple operators and managing the handover from one to the other presents a challenge".
