OLED or LCD? Last year, Apple launched its first OLED display on the iPhone X. Now, both the XS and XS Max will have OLED displays. For more info, head over to Apple. When Apple's online store came back online following today's keynote, a number of devices were conspicuously missing, including the iPhone SE, the iPhone 6s and the iPhone X.

Others found the company's lack of creativity to be a bigger issue, with many simply calling the new names "dumb" and 'lazy'.

Philip Schiller, an Apple Worldwide Marketing vice president, introduced it as the "most lovely phone" they have ever made, and it has the biggest iPhone display to date.

Apple just announced that its lower-cost iPhone is officially known as the iPhone XR. The lack of those niceties, coupled with a $749 price point, means deciding which iPhone you really want is a bit more complicated than before.

The iPhone XS Max's display size is 26 percent larger than the previous largest iPhone display, marking it the largest increase in screen size since 2014, wrote analyst Gene Munster of Loup Ventures in a note.

Apple also put a new electrical heart rate sensor in its watches that makes the device work as an electrocardiogram, or ECG.

The new model keeps the iPhone X styling with a thin bezel and display notch for sensors and cameras.

On Wednesday, though, Rodgers made it clear that painkillers had nothing to do with the comeback or the postgame interview. He said after the game that while he had to undergo more tests, he planned on playing against Minnesota.

People will be able to buy the Apple Watch Series 4 with Global Positioning System for $399 while the version with cellular connectivity will cost $499.

Most of the new phones' performance improvements stem from the A12 Bionic processor. But Apple claims that the XS will go 30 minutes longer on a charge than the X does, while the XS Max will last 90 minutes more.

This includes the $1099 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max, the $999 5.8-inch iPhone XS, and the $749 6.1-inch iPhone XR. Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are the first iPhones to come with Dual-SIM and e-SIM support. It took the iPhone X ten months to achieve 60 million shipments, according to a latest research by Counterpoint on Tuesday.

So, when can you get your shakingly impatient hands on Apple's latest trio of phones?

This year's three top phones are all more expensive than last year's models. Apple demonstrated one app, HomeCourt, that uses the camera viewfinder to track and analyse basketball shots to provide real-time feedback that can help players improve their technique. It also comes with 256GB and 512GB storage options. It predicts average iPhone selling prices will rise by $20.

The tech giant unveiled a new iteration of the flagship iPhone X with a 5.8in screen dubbed the iPhone XS - pronounced "ten S" rather than "excess" as well as the iPhone XS Max, which comes with a larger 6.5in screen.
