Design-wise, the iPhone Xr bears similarities to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max with a 6.1-inch all-screen build, slim bezels and the signature notch which incorporates Face ID and gestural navigation, but for a considerably lower price starting at $749 Dollars, and available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models. Pricing starts at US$999 for the iPhone Xs and $1,099 for the iPhone X Max.

Yes and no. It's still an LCD panel, unlike the iPhone XS, which uses and OLED screen.

Apple said orders for the iPhone Xs and Xs Max will begin September 14, and the devices will ship beginning a week later.

All three new models join the iPhone X in getting rid of the home button to make room for more screen.

It's pronounced "iPhone 10 ess". You can also add specific people or time zones to the watch face. The iPhone Xs screen measures 5.8-inches, just like the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display.

While there has not been any confirmation as of yet, the outlet reports that some leaked reports indicated that the new batch of iPhones will include one with 6.5-inch display.

The iPhone Xr model will be available in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red colors. (For a while, we used the icky word "phablet"- for part-phone part-tablet - to describe them.) But now Apple's largest bests even Samsung's Note 9, which measures 6.4 inches.

Apple revealed a variety of new products including its three new iPhones and watch at an event on Wednesday at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. Now, with different price points, the addition and removal of certain features on certain devices, and the death of the headphone jack for good, it feels like Apple doesn't care whether or not consumers actually like what's happening to their smartphones. Also, the XR doesn't support Apple's 3D Touch, a feature that can display additional content based on how hard you press the screen.

The Xs and the Xs Max will be available for pre-order on Friday.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X. The GPU is up to 50% faster than the GPU in the A11 Bionic processor in the iPhone X. The A12 Bionic chip can handle up to 5 trillion operations per second, compared to the 600 billion for the iPhone X.

Apple has invited journalists, analysts, and tech industry figures to its campus on Wednesday for the launch of new iPhone and Apple Watch models. The Apple Watch heart monitor will now do long-term cardiac monitoring, warning when your heart beats irregularly.

Schiller said that the iPhone XS is liquid proof against "even beer - this is some of the most fun test we get to do at Apple".

For everyone else, many of whom are still using iPhones they purchased several years ago, there's the XR. The processor helps apps launch up to 30 percent faster.

The iPhone XR was also introduced at the event.
