New iPhones Are Coming

  • The gold space gray and silver finishes on iPhone Xs

And, at 11 a.m. EST, Apple unveiled even more about the new gear. It's got the same basic design of the iPhone X and XS, with a large edge-to-edge screen.

Perhaps the best news for Asian customers is that all three new iPhones will have dual SIM support, and it's a superior version than most of the rest of the world is getting.

The iPhone XR starts at $749 Dollars, which we anticipate translating as £749 and will be available to order from 19 October. But, people are already reading it as X, and that's likely to catch on.

It's an engineering marvel that Apple's been able to pack in so much screen, so many sensors and so much processing power into such a small space.

On Twitter, Apple fans are simultaneously hailing the sleek new products and dragging the company for its name choice. The iPhone 8 starts at $599. The phone doesn't have gigabit LTE like the XS does, although it does support T-Mobile's new rural Band 71.

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

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

Apple recently expressed concern that some of its products, including the Apple Watch and AirPods, could wind up costing consumers significantly more if the Trump administration were to go through with its latest rounds of tariffs on Chinese imports.

The iPhone XSMax is a little bit more expensive as it will set you back €1,279 and it's available in the exact same colours.

The watch, sold in the United States from US$399 and up, will be available in stores on September 21. The iPhone XS sports a 5.8-inch OLED Super Retina (1125x2234 pixels) with the same notch as the one seen on 2017's iPhone X. On the other hand, the iPhone XS Max gets a large 6.5-inch OLED Super Retina panel with a 1242x2688 pixel resolution, one of the biggest mass-market smartphone displays, with a similar display notch. We have the details on buying an unlocked iPhone XS Max SIM-free handset here - probably best to sit down for a few minutes. Apple's iPhone XR has a 12-megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture.

Apple has not included 3D Touch in the phone.

The XS has the exact same look and dimensions as the original iPhone X, while the Max is a plus-size variant with a 6.5-inch display.

Both are loaded with Apple's new A12 Bionic chip, which Apple claims runs run 15 per cent faster than the A11 chip in the iPhone X.

On that basis, the numbers you need to know are $1,249/£1,249 for the 256GB model and an eye-watering $1,449/£1,449 for the mighty 512GB iPhone XS Max.

Apple's special media event is now in the books and, per usual, there's a whole lot to pore over.
