And Apple didn't stop at one iPhone this year: you'll have to choose between the Xs, the Xs Max (the Xs' bigger brother) and the confusingly named iPhone XR - a cheaper option if you don't fancy dipping into your rainy-day fund.

This includes the $1099 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max, the $999 5.8-inch iPhone XS, and the $749 6.1-inch iPhone XR. There aren't many differences between the two models: the screen is Apple's biggest ever at 6.5in, the display resolution is higher (2,688 x 1,242), the battery is slightly larger - presumably to accommodate that massive screen - and naturally, it's more expensive. Apple used older LCD screen technology and aluminum, rather than stainless steel, edges. Both have 120Hz touch sensitive layers.

A new processor for faster performance, storage space of up to 512 GB, improved display for better colour representation, and a gold finish in the front and back are also key features of Apple's newest handset. While past models have been available in up to three colors, this year, Apple is offering the iPhone XR in six: Black, White, Product (Red), Yellow, Coral, and Blue.

You'll be able to pre-order the iPhone XR beginning Friday, October 19, and it will hit stores on Friday, October 26, in more than 50 countries. This one will cost nearly $1,100, topping last year's iPhone X, which at $1,000 seemed jaw-dropping at the time.

Apple revealed its three new iPhones on September in an event at the Steve Jobs Theater in its Apple Park HQ.

Photos on the new phone will have a 60% greater dynamic range than the iPhone X.

Just like last year's iPhone X model. Certainly, games created to tap into the newly-more-potent GPU looked visually better than earlier iOS titles, though I suspect the extra turn of speed will be most valued in multitasking and combating the inevitable slowdown over time that all smartphones seem to suffer.

On Twitter, Apple fans are simultaneously hailing the sleek new products and dragging the company for its name choice. The most visible feature in Mojave is the new Dark Mode, which is really fantastic, but there are a bunch of other new features like desktop stacks, dynamic desktop, screenshot and recording tools, and a ton of other features. Apple also looks to have improved the edge detection to cope with wavy hair, although we'll need to look into this closer when we get our review devices.

The XR is only a single lens camera system, but has a wide angle like those found on iPhone X.

This will be Apple's new flagship phone with a 5.8-inch screen. "It will feel like they have a device that's modern because it will look like one of the new ones but not have the cost". The phone promises 90 more minutes of battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 device has a 35% bigger display screen than its predecessor and comes in two different sizes: 40mm or 44mm.
