Apple's 2018 iPhone Event: What You Need to Know

A third new iPhone XR has also been unveiled.

The second phone with a 5.8-inch OLED display, likely called the iPhone Xs, would be similar to the iPhone X but with an improved processor.

In addition, unlike the stainless steel compositions of the Xs and Xs Max, the Xr is made of "7000 series aerospace grade aluminum" with a glass back for wireless charging, while opting for a single 12-megapixel wide-angle rear lens camera, rather than dual lenses. It took the iPhone X ten months to achieve 60 million shipments, according to a latest research by Counterpoint on Tuesday.

Others pointed out that it was a missed opportunity, arguing that the firm should have called its XS Max - which has the biggest iPhone display yet - the iPhone XL.

If you want to connect your wired headphones to your shiny new iPhone, you'll now need to pay £9 for a headphone adapter.

The pair are the successor to the iPhone X which was released last November and retailed from £999.

Find out whether this is the next iPhone you should get, and whether you should plump for either the cheaper model or the bigger, Max version.

The iPhone Xs Max sports the largest display ever offered on an Apple smartphone with a rounded 6.5-inch screen.

The phone has a new display called a liquid retina display.

The biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red.

"Apple, once again, has shown their mastery of pricing tiers, which will extract more revenue per customer", analyst Gene Munster of Loup Ventures wrote in a note. It's likely to be one of the most-used features of the new phones.

Read on to find out everything we know about the brand new iPhone XR. While the iPhone X, XS and XS Max have pressure-sensitive 3D Touch screens that activate the flashlight or camera when you press down hard, the iPhone XR only has haptic feedback.

Apple Inc is expected to blast further past the $1,000 price barrier when it launches new iPhones on September 12, but Wall Street is most intrigued by how deep into its larger-than-ever lineup prices hikes may go. A new dual-camera system with "Smart HDR" and the ability to dynamically change focus depth on photos. Those details matter all the more considering Apple's hoping for a string of mass upgrades that failed to materialize after last fall's iPhone launch.

The Apple Watch is getting some big upgrades.

All three devices also come with a more powerful "A12 Bionic" processor which allows developers to build more sophisticated video games, augmented reality experiences and other apps with real-time features that couldn't previously run on a mobile device. Even with all this power, iPhone XR lasts up to an hour and a half longer than iPhone 8 Plus.

For everyone else, many of whom are still using iPhones they purchased several years ago, there's the XR.
