Apple has just announced the new iPhone XS and its bigger brother XS Max.

Apple has announced the brand new iPhone Xr at its annual iPhone keynote event, joining alongside the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max for the company's 2018 flagship iPhones.

To differentiate itself from the iPhone XS series, the XR gets the iPhone 5C treatment with a choice of six colours, namely Blue, White, Black, Yellow, Coral and Red. The iPhone XS has the same 5.8in-sized component as the original, while iPhone XR's screen is 6.1in but is lower quality. Apple has made a lot of developments with this chipset, and it is manufactured using the 7nm process. Two are performance cores that are up to 15 percent faster and use 40 percent less power.

Apps launch up to 30% faster with the A12 Bionic chip.

There are, of course, camera improvements.

Hindustan Times, owned by HT Media Ltd, is one of India's largest publications that provides unbiased news, analysis and features on politics, sports, entertainment, lifestyle and more. You get a 12MP main sensor, and another 12MP telephoto lens, with new lenses, that are supposedly better than before. The 7MP TrueDepth front camera can do portrait lighting along with as Animojis and Memojis. The camera has Smart HDR, 4K video recording up to 60fps and stereo audio recording. Other noteworthy features include Gigabit-class LTE and dual-SIM support with eSIM technology (China will still have two physical SIMs, we're told).

The Only Loser at Apple’s Latest Event Is Your Wallet
For folks who follow Apple's naming conventions: It's an "S" upgrade, Apple's every-other-year cycle for big new launches. The iPhone XR starts at $749 for 64GB of storage; the iPhone XS at $999; and the iPhone XS Max at $1099.

All three new models join the iPhone X in getting rid of the home button to make room for more screen.

Others pointed out that it was a missed opportunity, arguing that the firm should have called its XS Max - which has the biggest iPhone display yet - the iPhone XL.

The long wait for new iPhones is now officially over.

Those needing the (costly) upgrades to their current iPhones can start pre-ordering the iPhone XS and iPhone XS tomorrow, and both will be available in stores on Sept 21. Apple promises "wider stereo" on the Xs Max. With the new A12 Bionic, new GPU, and Neural Engine Apple says this phone is flawless for mobile gaming.

It will allegedly be the entry-level iPhone, featuring a single camera - granted, larger - and an aluminum chassis instead of steel. Xs Max is offered at £1,099, £1,249 and £1,449 price that is PKR 175,000, 200,000 and 230,000 respectively. The camera offers OIS and is assisted by a True Tone Quad LED flash.

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