Leaked iPhone Xr SIM card trays reveal new color options

This giant call maker looks set to feature a 6.5-inch display which would make it the largest iPhone Apple has ever made.

'The iPhone Xs Max price reflects the name.,' Twitter user @juhasaarinen wrote.

Today Apple announced new Apple Watches and a handful of new iPhones that all have edge-to-edge, curved displays just like the iPhone X does.

The iPhone XR differs in both resolution and display technology. The Max model looks to be about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, though the screen size is much larger.

The iPhone Xs will start at $899, and features most of the same specs and features as the Xs Max.

Apple said orders for the iPhone Xs and Xs Max will begin September 14, and the devices will ship beginning a week later. 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 Apple Watch Series 4 will be available for pre-order on September 14 and launch on September 21, starting at $399 for the Global Positioning System model and $499 for the cellular option. The phone also packs improved sensors for faster Face ID functionality.

Verizon Brings Home 5G Service to Four US Cities on October 1
Customers who sign up early will get free installation and equipment as well as their first three months of service for free. This launch is still a big deal, though, because we're finally starting to see 5G service become available to consumers.

Joining the iPhone XS is the all-new iPhone XS Max.

In preparation for the arrival of new products, Apple's regular practice involves taking down its online store hours before any announcements. Inside it even shares the same brand new A12 Bionic processor found in the new XS and XS Max, and features IP67 waterproofing up to one meter for 20 minutes. Both devices come with Dual SIM and Gigabit LTE support, with more bands supported for roaming.

At Wednesday's event, Apple also unveiled a new Watch with a larger screen and new health capabilities. The new A12 is the industry's first 7nm design, which shows how far Apple's chip designers have come in just a few years.

The XR sports Face ID support, and while it lacks 3D touch, it will sport a new Haptic Touch feature that will allow you to open select apps right from the home screen with a long press.

The iPhone XR will be available starting at $1029 CAD and customers will be able to pre-order iPhone XR beginning Friday, October 19 with availability beginning Friday, October 26.

New MacBooks or MacBook Airs - these have been rumored for years and we still haven't seen them.

With edge-to-edge displays, improved water resistance, and a camera that can 'carry out a trillion operations on every photo, ' Apple's latest iPhone line-up may be its most impressive yet. There's a 4-core GPU in there, too, that's up to 50 percent faster, and an 8-core Neural Engine focused on machine learning.
