Apple Event Highlights: iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and Apple Watch 4

New iPhone Names, Colours and Storage Details Leaked From Apple.com

The change looks like it will apply to the three new iPhone models launched on Wednesday-the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR-as well as the older iPhone 8 and iPhone 7.

Apple's new iPhone XS, pronounced "ten S", has a 5.8-inch (14.7-cm) screen, and will be sold at a starting price of $999. Apple's brought back the "S" model, which means this model looks largely the same as the X from previous year, but the guts of the phone have been beefed up in all the ways you'd expect.

The XR is only a single lens camera system, but has a wide angle like those found on iPhone X. Apple has also added support for Core ML as well as AR Gaming and tracking.

Apple on Wednesday introduced three new versions of the iPhone, including the premium Xs and Xs Max.

With six new colours (white, black, blue, yellow, coral, (PRODUCT) RED), the iPhone Xr may also be popular for those uninterested in the silver, space gray and gold options with iPhone Xs.

It will be available to order from 19 October, and will start shipping on 26 October.

Other analysts have slightly different prices-$699, $969 and $1,069-but all are banking on Apple to raise prices again and deliver more revenue in the year ahead. But for the first time, Apple has made an LCD display that covers the entire front of the device, and Apple calls it the Liquid Retina display.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are shipping in 64GB, 256GB or 512GB - the largest in-built storage ever shipped on an Apple-branded smartphone. 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. The starting price mirrors the iPhone X at $999. The iPhone Xs screen measures 5.8-inches, just like the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display. Where the surprise (and, frankly, delight) comes in is when you turn that screen off. iOS has never had so much room to work on, at least not in a device you can hold - and use - single-handed.

The iPhone XS' battery life is half an hour than the iPhone X's maximum capacity (around 21 hours use talk time or 12 hours internet use), while the iPhone XS Max's battery is an hour and a half longer, according to Schiller.

This is our iPhone Xs Max vs Samsung Galaxy Note 9 breakdown.

The new model keeps the iPhone X styling with a thin bezel and display notch for sensors and cameras.

The A12 Bionic can launch apps 30 percent faster than the A11 Bionic through the help of algorithms tuned to recognizing when and how frequently apps are opened during the day.

The story with Apple's AirPower charging mat is murkier.
