And while they may not be as radical a change as the iPhone X was previous year (or bring back highly requested features like normal headphone jacks) these new iPhones do present their own unique improvements. The iPhone XR will start at $749. The device was announced at the end of Apple's press event, which was dominated by the company's unveiling of its new flagship XS models that have little noticeable difference from last year's iPhone X.

The Cupertino-based company has positioned the iPhone XR as its budget offering and it comes with toned down specifications.

Apple also claimed its latest smartwatch offers 18 hours of battery life. There's also a new watch face which is customisable for different occasions.

The firm also announced a third iPhone, the iPhone XR, which Apple's Phil Schiller said was meant to allow the company to reach "as many people as possible" with its devices.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max features Super Retina displays with OLED design and it supports Dolby Vision and HDR10.

The smartphone maker reportedly added the three new model names - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR - to the product sitemap XML file.

I don't give a fuck about your career. "I think in a lot of ways, Rick goes down there and it's part therapy and part gloating". The rapper, 45, has repeatedly dismissed those claims, most recently in a 2017 Vulture interview .


The phones come in three finishes (Gild, Silver, and Space Gray) and two sizes: the XS features an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch 2.7-million-pixel screen and the XS MAX features a 6.5-inch 3.3-million-pixel screen. It's got the same basic design of the iPhone X and XS, with a large edge-to-edge screen.

Similar to the iPhone X, the XR gets a notch which also houses the same advance sensors which enable Face ID authentication. A breakthrough 12MP dual-camera system takes your portraits to the next level with Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, enhanced bokeh, and all-new Depth Control.

Powered by A12 Bionic processor, Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have dual 12-megapixel cameras with optical image stabilisation and 2X optical zoom. There may have been gasps when the price of the iPhone X was revealed a year ago, and there is likely to be a repeat of this when people hear price tag that will be attached to this phone when it goes on sale.

The price of iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be according to its storage capacity as it is offered in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations. Want a fully decked out iPhone XS Max?

But it won't just be iPhones, as the fourth series of the popular Apple Watch is also set to be unveiled at the September 12 keynote. They'll be available for pre-order on September 14th and will hit store shelves on September 21st.

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