US Mobile is an MVNO service ready to give you $400 off the price of any of the three new iPhones.

So, when can you get your shakingly impatient hands on Apple's latest trio of phones? The 8 Plus, which is still available starting at $699, has just a 5.5-inch screen because it has to leave space for a Home Button and large bezels.

And like the XS and XS MAX, the XR features Smart HDR, which preserves better highlight and shadow details across photos.

Yet if that is not enough to convince them it is a worthy upgrade, the XR also offers numerous same cutting-edge features found on the top-of-the-line Xs models.

Battery life is very important to many consumers, and we'll be testing the new phones once they arrive in the lab.

For example, the top model of the iPhone XS, converted to dollars, costs $1,760 - a $411 difference.

Similar in size to the Plus versions of previous iPhones and competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Note but the screen takes up a larger chunk of the phone, making it the "biggest display ever on an iPhone", Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Apple.

It can affect as many as 43.4 million people, according to the United Nation's Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System .

Of course, one could always go for the smaller iPhone XS, but even so, you'll be hitting S$1,649 onwards. This chip has six-core "fusion architecture" made up of 2 performance cores (which are up to 15 percent faster than last year's A11 processor) and four efficiency cores that are up to 50 percent more efficient than on the A11.

The iPhone Xr, which was announced alongside the flagship new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, shares much of the tech of the more powerful devices, but comes installed with a different type of screen. Both numbers would work simultaneously on one device. Apple calls this 6.1-inch display "Liquid Retina", and it's 1792 x 828 resolution with 326 pixels per inch. The iPhone Xs Max is the Supersized Big Mac and fries phone for an era of healthier digital diets.

The iPhone Xr will come in white, black, blue, coral, yellow, and Product Red.

The Apple Watch series 4 will be available for pre-order this Friday, and you'll be able to get it starting next Friday, September 21.

It basically stuck with the same design from 2014's iPhone 6 models to last year's iPhone 8.

The iPhone XR, which was also rumored to be named the iPhone XC, is expected to be a rare budget option from Apple, using an LCD screen as opposed to a nicer, more expensive OLED screen. Though the headphones got off to a slow start, they have quickly helped Apple capture 26% of the USA wireless headphone market, according to NPD Group.
