Apple's iPhone Xr model is the cheapest of the new iPhones, with a starting price of $749.

Battery life, in comparison to the iPhone 8 Plus, is improved by 90 minutes.

'Apple's new phone's name is iphone XS which like every other iphone would be EXCESSively overpriced, ' @Bhavessshh tweeted.

Follow KTLA Tech Reporter Rich DeMuro on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook! Apple first announced the product last fall, promising the ability to charge an iPhone X, Apple Watch, and AirPods simultaneously without cables.

The massive iPhone Xs Max sets a new display size record with a 6.5-inch display made up of 3.3 million pixels.

While it appears that Apple is cutting corners with the display, the iPhone XR is packing similar top notch hardware as the iPhone XS.

US Mobile is an MVNO service ready to give you $400 off the price of any of the three new iPhones. You don't have to do a thing to work this magic.

There's also Dual-SIM support but for those outside of China would need to use an e-SIM for the secondary connection. (I couldn't test it because it wasn't activated on the phones in the demo room.) In general, our carriers have banned dual-SIM phones in the past; the most successful so far have been OnePlus phones, which haven't been sold through carriers. Both devices have a glass back.


Like the iPhone X, they come with Super Retina displays and OLED screens that support Dolby Vision and HDR10, and provide the "best colour accuracy in the industry".

And technology-lovers will only have a few days to wait before they can pre-order the latest incarnations of the world's most popular phone, with orders being taken from Sept. 14 and shipping for Saudi Arabia and the UAE starting on Sept. 21. iPhone addicts in Oman and Bahrain will have a week longer to wait, with the iPhones arriving in the two countries a week later on Sept. 28.

It is positioning the new watch as a more comprehensive health device, able to take an electrocardiogram to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers. That's not the case for the iPhone XR, at least during preorders.

At one point during Apple's keynote, three people demonstrating an augmented-reality game faced off while consumed by their giant screens, the ideal image for our binge smartphone times. Instead, it has an LCD screen.

Apple revealed its new iOS 12 will be available to download on September 17 as long as you got a device newer than an iPhone 5. Also, there's no 3D Touch so you can't do those fun little hard press shortcuts on the screen.

The iPhone XS will start at $999 and the iPhone XS Max will start at $1099. While some might be quick to fault the company for copying others or coming out with features later than rivals, it's their attention to detail, ecosystem and gradual evolution that keeps people coming back for more.

You'll be able to preorder the iPhone XS and XS Max here. First photos of the iPhone Xs were obtained by a blogger who guessed the correct URLs.
