The single camera at the rear is a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/1.8 aperture while the one on the front is the same as offered on iPhone XS and XS Max. But that's about R4,000 less than the starting price for the XS, and XR comes with a bigger screen.

The phones are updates to last year's iPhone X ("10"), which marks the 10th anniversary of the smartphone - stretching the screen while keeping the overall handset size at or near that of previous models.

Because of its bigger display size, the pixel density is lower at 326ppi which is on par with the regular iPhone 8.

The iPhone XS comes with a price tag of $999 for the 64GB variant, $1,149 for the 256GB variant, and $1,349 for 512GB. "We expect the iPhone XS Max to have exactly the same effect despite its price tag".

The phone includes a 12MP dual lens camera with "smart HDR" with "zero shutter lag" thanks to its new processor, taking multiple frame shots at once, even of moving shots, to combine the pictures together to "merge them into one ideal photo".

Apple has added a more powerful chip, known as A12 Bionic, which the firm claims allows apps to run 30% faster than before. It is more efficient, and up to 15 percent more faster. Apple has worked on a new back for the Watch and it is now made of either black ceramic or sapphire crystal.

The Apple Watch 4 release date is September 21st, when Apple Stores, retailers and many carriers will open up early to sell the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the new Apple Watch.

Many users have held onto older Apple Watch models, and this represents a massive change to the device that could convince users to upgrade. The second camera is also 12 megapixels and it is a telephoto with an aperture of f / 2.4.

I'm really happy there", he added. "Here [City] I feel very good, very protected from football", he said. This summer, former Barcelona midfielder Guardiola ruled out a return to coach the Barca first team.

So, that appears to be a nail in the coffin for the rumoured "iPhone XS Plus" and "iPhone XC" names, then, which were widely rumoured to be the monikers of the gadgets. This feature is expected to come in India.

Both models will go up for pre-orders September 14th, and ship from September 21st for the first wave of launch countries.

CEO Tim Cook showed off the Apple XS, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,000.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max features Super Retina displays with OLED design and it supports Dolby Vision and HDR10.

The iPhone Xr comes in three storage configurations: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

In addition, Apple says the Series 4 Apple Watch will also be able to detect when someone falls - and can tell the difference between a trip and a fall.

The smartwatches are able to detect hard falls, and an electrical heart rate sensor can take an electrocardiogram.

The new XR will start at £749.
