Here's Everything New At Apple: iPhone, Apple Watch, iOS And More

OLED or LCD? Last year, Apple launched its first OLED display on the iPhone X. Now, both the XS and XS Max will have OLED displays.

The iPhone XS is entirely waterproof and liquid proof, with the most durable glass ever on a smartphone.

Highly anticipated: Apple's biggest hardware event of the year is finally upon us.

Apple announced new iPhone models on Wednesday at its press event in Cupertino, California.

Barely a year ago, Apple released its most expensive phone to date, the iPhone X. The pricing triggered criticism in some quarters.

In other ways, the iPhone Xr matches the high-end Xs range: It has the same front-facing camera with FaceID, and uses the same A12 Bionic chip, which is faster and more power-efficient than last year's A11.

So how's it work without a home button?

A new S4 chip promises to give the watch the same battery life but nearly double the functioning speed. The display gets native support for True Tone and wide colour support, which Apple claims can deliver a better viewing experience. The iPhone Xs screen measures 5.8-inches, just like the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display. The price of the XR will start at $749 in the United States and €849 ($987) in Germany.

iPhone XR price: How much does the iPhone XR cost?

Some of you might rightly be wondering: What about my not-so-huge hands?

Part of the answer to the Apple growth question is higher prices: The company's iPhone unit sales were flat last quarter, but profits were up 23 per cent.

Apple says the new watch will be able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call if it detects that a user has fallen down. There have been rumblings that Apple is primarily focused on ramping up production of the XS and XR models and that an update to the iPhone SE is the least of the company's worries at the moment.

The sitemap listings also reference the iPhone XR, believed to be the cheaper handset with a 6.1in LCD screen to replace the iPhone 8 as the company's entry-level device. What's new is that Apple filled out the "forehead" and "chin" area with screen, giving you the whopping 6.5 inches. In short, Apple has enlarged the screen, not the phone, so our back pockets are safe. The cheapest phone in the iPhone line up is the iPhone 7, starting at $449.

According to Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, it's the most 'advanced single-lens camera the company has ever created'.

Will iPhone X owners upgrade to the massive iPhone XS Max? The phone, which costs more than a basic Apple laptop ($1449 in its maxed-out Max configuration), is in many ways becoming a replacement for a laptop - minus the keyboard.

What Else Did We Get? However, this is a more elegant design and the iPhone XR is one good looking smartphone.

It's the flawless tool for taking bigger selfies, for pawing at bigger Instagram pictures, for streaming even more Netflix.
