Plus, Apple's new phones over the last two years haven't really thrilled me.

Apple has finally unveiled its new iPhone XS Max along with a new Apple Watch.

We've got your chance to bag a brand new iPhone XS Max, and you get to support Make Some Noise, too! But do they deliver?

All of this is to say, it's not a great phone, but it's my phone - and it has a headphone jack, something you can't say for the current batch of iPhone models.

It is positioning the new watch as a more comprehensive health device, able to take an electrocardiogram (ECG) to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers. Especially the iPhone Xs Max is prone to sell out tonight.

iPhone Xs starts at £999 for 64GB of internal storage and goes up to £1,149 and £1,349 if fans want 256GB and 512GB of memory respectively. Apple also provided a sneak peek at AirPower, claiming that it would help spur wide adoption of wireless charging for more gadgets across the industry. Apple also finally fixed the messy notifications with the new iOS 12 by introducing grouped notifications.

The new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come with IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. However, the new iPhone XS uses Surgical-grade stainless steel frame with glass on the front and rear.

What's impressive is how shockingly light the phone feels for a device with that much screen. Shops and carriers happily give you a deal, but they might already be low on inventory and you end up waiting weeks for your new iPhone Xs. You see, the thing is that while it may sport a lower starting price of Rs 76,900 when it launches on October 26 and offer a 6.1-inch notched LCD screen (instead of the superior OLED screens on the XS) with no 3D Touch tech, this is by no way a pushover of a phone.

The removal of the iPhone SE also isn't terribly surprising, as Apple is billing the iPhone Xr as its "budget" device (no matter it still carries a $749 price tag), plus it offers the iPhone 7 for $449.

The Sun also explained that as the iPad Pro comes in two sizes, the 10.5-inch starting at £619 and the 12.9-inch at £769, added storage and WiFi connectivity can drive the cost up to £1,249 and we could see a dramatic price increase for this product in a similar way to the iPhone past year.

It's the flawless tool for taking bigger selfies, for pawing at bigger Instagram pictures, for streaming even more Netflix.

Good luck ever putting it down.

The latest launch of big screen phones by Apple have triggered a backlash and women are coming out of the woodwork to complain.
