Just like the iPhone XS and XS Max, the XR also supports wireless charging and will be water-resistant however to a slightly lower rating of IP67.

You can also now chose the amount of bokeh after you’ve taken the photo.

Speculation includes talk that Apple will introduce three new iPhone models infused with features from a premium iPhone X that debuted past year with a $1,000 price tag.

The Cupertino tech giant also revealed a smaller iPhone XS, and a budget model dubbed the iPhone XR at its launch event, held on its spaceship-shaped campus inside the Steve Jobs Theatre.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the next flagship smartphones from the company.

“As “S” devices, these new iPhones build on the design that Apple introduced a year ago with the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs sticks with the same 5.8″ edge-to-edge screen design as the iPhone X, while the iPhone Xs Max crams a 6.5″ edge-to-edge display into what Apple calls the biggest-screened iPhone yet. Pre-orders will begin Friday, September 14, while retail availability will begin Friday, September 21. And of course, there’s a new Gold color option.

The third offering is arguably the most interesting product Apple unveiled at the event, and not just because it’s the most accessible of the three new iPhone models when it comes to pricing. They both have HDR, Dolby Vision and HDR 10.

Apple is betting that an iPhone with its largest screen yet will lead to bigger profits, too. Apple used older LCD screen technology and aluminium, rather than stainless steel, edges. Wider stereo playback creates a more immersive soundstage. Both Xs models go on sale in South Africa on 28 September. All of this is joined by the company’s A12 Bionic chip. Apple promises battery life of over and hour and half from the iPhone X. Talk time is expected to be up to 25 hours while Internet usage is set at 13 hours.

Featuring a new OLED display, the phones are also available three finishes.

The neural engine works up to 9 times faster on Core ML operations and uses less than 1/10 the energy. The GPU is up to 50 percent faster than the GPU on the A11 Bionic. The company has also included features like ECG and fall detection among other things. According to the company, 6-Element lens has been provided in the rear camera which supports 2x optical zoom.

The news was met with instant ridicule across social media, as Twitter users likened it to everything from energy drinks to commentary on its “excessive” cost. It is more efficient, and up to 15 percent more faster.

Thanks to the almost edge-to-edge screen of the Series 4, not only is the actual face bigger, but the display is about 15% larger. For videos, you get stereo sound recording, which is great.

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10. “This is iPhone XS”.

Face ID is the most secure facial authentication system ever in a smartphone.
