Got $1,100? Apple shows off its most expensive iPhone yet

  • Apple to enable the eSIM chip on the 2018 iPhone models with a future iOS 12 update

For tech savants, the iPhone XSs offers a new processor for faster performance, storage space up to 512 GB and an overall improved display for better colour representation.

The iPhone Xr is perhaps the biggest change in the company's line-up: The device is meant to replace the iPhone 8 as an option for more budget-conscious buyers, but lends its looks from the iPhone X. It features a 6.1 inch LED edge-to-edge LED screen with a resolution of 1792 by 828 pixels and a pixel density of 326 ppi.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X.

The newest entry in the segment is the iPhone XS Max, and it will start at Rs 1,09,900 for the 64GB version in India. The Xs also features the most generous storage capacity that Apple has ever offered customers, with both versions being available with 64GB, 256GB or 512GB of internal storage.

The leak, discovered in new product page listings of the Apple.com sitemap by the site All Things How, appears to confirm the three new phones will be called the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR. It has a similar look to the others but has a 6.1-inch LCD display.

Bar the camera and screen, the rest of the specifications are largely the same as the XS and XS Max.

The Face ID in these models is said to work faster this time than last year's iPhone X. There will also be 128GB and 256GB models.

Numbers Still Favor Kavanaugh's Confirmation to Supreme Court

You'll be able to pre-order the XR on October 19, and it'll ship out a week later on October 26.

The Max is the Xs' bigger brother.

Sam's Club is throwing in a $100 gift card to members who purchase and activate an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max from September 21st through September 23rd with either AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon.

But the price-tag of the top model will again have even the most ardent Apple fan wincing, with the XS Max going for an eye-watering $1,100 - $100 more than last year's iPhone X. In the aftermath of the launch, questions were being asked about how high technology firms can push the prices of smartphones before consumers kick back.

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. Now Apple has removed the home button from its newest generation of iPhones for good.

The fourth-gen smartwatches also include more health capabilities, a faster processor and haptic feedback for the "digital crown" controller.

The company, in a bid to bolster its spot in the premium smartphone market, also unveiled an upgraded smartwatch that takes electrocardiograms and detects falls. The strategy has been successful, helping Apple's stock gain more than 30% this year and making it the first publicly traded U.S. company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion. However, those expecting a better battery will be disappointed, as the Watch 4 promises the same 18-hour lifespan. It will come in Silver, Gold, Space Gray, Polished Space Black, and a new Gold Stainless color.
