The new iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch screen size, while iPhone XS Max is 6.5 inch in size, in line with Wall Street expectations.

As with the iPhone X, the new phone has a screen that runs from edge to edge, an effort to maximise the display without making the phone too awkward to hold. It has a traditional, lower-quality screen and an aluminum body; it's physically smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus but has a bigger screen.

The company also said the XS Max housed the biggest battery the company had ever placed into an iPhone, which would give users 90 minutes more battery life than last year's iPhone X. The best part about the new Apple Watch Series 4 is the fact that it is powered by a new S4 chip which has a 64-bit dual-core processor.

With a bigger screen comes a whopping 3 million pixels, so you will view photos, videos, and games sharpest on the iPhone XS Max.

The new watch, positioned as a more comprehensive health device, will be able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers.

Apple has just announced the iPhone XS and XS MAX, a new generation of iPhones that brings iPhone photographer to the next level.

I'm really happy there", he added. "I do not feel judged by a defeat or victory". "I'm at the club that interests me". I recently met his parents and understood a lot about why he is a fantastic guy". "He's an incredible boy".

Apple's camera system also features Smart HDR that meshes multiple shots into one to get the ideal blend of highlights, shadows and reduced shutter lag. While last year's premium priced iPhone X helped boost the company's smartphone revenue, the stagnating unit sales are holding back the company's overall growth, and have led to declining market share.

It sets a new high price for an iPhone, starting at €1,279 in Ireland. Pre-orders open Friday, September 14, and shipping starts September 21. Improved true-tone flash, 12 MP telephoto camera, 7 megapixel rear camera.

Apple also announced a new Apple Watch, which will move further into medical device territory.

The camera system also boasts optical image stabilisation, a flood illuminator, an ambient light sensor and comes offering the wildly popular Portrait Mode. There's a single physical SIM as well as an eSIM - and this may not go down well, as support is on a per-supplier basis. Be careful: following in Apple tradition over the years, the X is actually a Roman numeral. Additionally, it will feature all the same upgrades to the camera software that the XS range will receive.

The iPhone XR starts at $749 United States dollars, which we anticipate translating as £749 and will be available to order from 19 October.

"Apple Watch isn't just the number one watch world in the world - it's the number one watch period", emphasized Cook onstage at Wednesday's event.
