The Coolest Features in the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and XR

The Coolest Features in the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and XR

Apple has just announced the new iPhone XS and its bigger brother XS Max. The images clicked on the iPhone XR we saw looked remarkably sharp and clear. At $749, it's still more than the $649 that consumers used to pay for an entry-level iPhone, but that's still far less than the $999 iPhone XS. All can be pre-ordered from 19 October and will start shipping the following week.

Like the iPhone X, the XS has a 5.8-inch OLED screen, while the XS Max boasts a mammoth 6.5-inch OLED display. The only potential hiccup to a record-breaking quarter is the fact that the iPhone XS won't launch until October.

The iPhone XR has ditched the Home button and Touch ID in favor of Face ID and the TrueDepth camera. This year, we're getting three new iPhones. All of this unlocks new experiences for games, photography, video editing and graphics-intensive apps while still offering great battery life.

The rear sports a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with improved two-tone flash.

And, Schiller said, the XS line-up features 'the most attractive iPhone we've ever made'. The iPhone Xs is at last official - alongside the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR, and despite all the secrecy and speculation, it's much as everyone expected it to be. There have been rumblings that Apple is primarily focused on ramping up production of the XS and XR models and that an update to the iPhone SE is the least of the company's worries at the moment. While its removal can be seen as penny pinching (and with Apple you never know), the actual use that adapter got is of suspect, considering most people just use the bundled EarPods or possibly get the AirPods.

The next major update to the iOS will be released next Tuesday, followed a week later by a Mac software update.

Apple accidentally leaked photos and names prior to Wednesday's event, and several other details were already known, so Wall Street had a good broad idea of what to expect - the devil would be in the details.

The lower-priced model is available in aircraft-grade aluminum in coral, black, blue, yellow, white, and PRODUCT (RED) with 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB capacities. This is Apple's attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the iPhone X screen notch, and features such as Animoji. However, the XR loses out on 3D Touch and relies on Taptic Feedback for launching the camera or the flashlight. It features Smart HDR, which automatically makes improvements to photos using machine learning.

When it comes to the optics, the XR has to make do with a single 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, supported by OIS.

The iPhone XR has more durable glass, with an LCD display and comes in different colours.

AirPower Wireless Charging Mat - this was announced quite a while ago, and should have launched in the spring.
