Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone

Enhancements have also been made to the sensors in the new Watch, enabling it to detect and alert users if it notices a low or irregular heart rate.

So, when can you get your shakingly impatient hands on Apple's latest trio of phones? It has the same basic design of the iPhone X and Xs, with a large edge-to-edge screen.

And if you don't have that spare wad to buy outright, don't forget to check out our prediction of what you'll pay on contract for iPhone XS deals in the USA and iPhone XS deals in the UK.

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.

Apple's newest phones feature faster processors and better memory capacities than their predecessor.

For example, the top model of the iPhone XS, converted to dollars, costs $1,760 - a $411 difference.

The phones will include the ability to support dual SIM cards, which means people can put two phone numbers or phone plans on the same phone.

The iPhone XR also sports the same Face ID tech as the iPhone XS. But with Apple boosting the average iPhone selling price by almost 20 percent, it still meant a bumper year for the tech firm.


With edge-to-edge displays, improved water resistance, and a camera that can 'carry out a trillion operations on every photo, ' Apple's latest iPhone line-up may be its most impressive yet.

More recently, images of what are said to be the iPhone XS and XS Max models were discovered by the Apple blog 9to5Mac, which apparently guessed at URLs to uncover marketing images of still unannounced devices. Both numbers would work simultaneously on one device. (A software upgrade called iOS 12 coming to older iPhones Sept. 17 will give parents new tools to monitor their children's online habits, not to mention their own.) But Apple's iPhone event sent a different message: more, more, more. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera.

Unlike the flagship models, it comes in a handful of new colors including white, black, blue, coral, yellow, and (PRODUCT) RED.

The Lightning to 3.5 mm Headphone Jack Adapter, as it is called, as been part of the iPhone packaging since the headphone jack was omitted back with the iPhone 7 launch.

The new Watch and iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR will be available for pre-order tomorrow and will be available for purchase next Friday, September 21.

Battery life is claimed to last up to an hour and half longer per day than the iPhone 8 Plus.

The Bluetooth/GPS model will start at $399, while the version with cellular connectivity will run you $499.
