Apple Unveils iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr

Apple's iPhone X iPad Pro 'likely' to face South Korea ban The iPhone X and iPhone 8 might soon be banned in South Korea

Apple's iOS 12 will be available Monday. An updated iPhone X, now called the XS, stays at $1,000. Apple has also added support for Core ML as well as AR Gaming and tracking.

Read on to find out everything we know about the brand new iPhone XR. The A12 features a custom hexa-core CPU, a quad-core GPU and an octa-core Neural Engine. Phil Schiller, the company's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, described A12 Bionic as "the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone".

Yet while the iPhone updates were significant, another less heralded device, the Apple Watch, stole the show. Its sides are also made out of aluminum, rather than stainless steel. We're talking some small upgrades on last year's iPhone X model (which at the time was billed as "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone"). This model doesn't have the pressure-sensitive 3D Touch feature as its more expensive siblings, and its display screen contains a lower quality "Liquid Retina" LED display than the "Super Retina" displays. Even the depth effect - a strong suit of dual rear cameras - was quite good.

New photography feature SmartHDR takes four shots at multiple exposures, including long exposure, and uses artificial intelligence to select the best picture as the final presented image. The iPhone Xs is at last official - alongside the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR, and despite all the secrecy and speculation, it's much as everyone expected it to be.

Wednesday's announcements came shortly after the company appeared to leak the new devices on its website. Everywhere else will use a combination of one physical SIM and eSIM.

The other difference in the iPhone XR and XS is the camera set up.

It also allows for an iPhone first: a 512GB memory disk.

Djokovic tops Nishikori for 8th US Open final
I didn't take any pleasure in watching Nadal go through the motions in that second set - especially in case he did more damage. But he was walking with a hitch in his step and had the trainer out to retape the knee early in the second set.

It comes with a new screen feature called haptic touch, to get to the camera quickly from the screen as there is no physical button on the front.

These features will be available to US customers later this year, but Apple did not say when it would make it to the rest of the world.

What can you do with all that lovely iPhone Xs Max screen?

The iPhone Xr is also splash and water resistant, with a rating of IP67, and will also come in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and the exclusive (PRODUCT) RED edition, which helps raise awareness and inspire action to fight HIV/AIDS.

The iPhone Xs will have 30 minutes of additional battery life compared to the current iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max, which was designed with the largest battery ever used in an iPhone, will get 1.5 hours more.

Customers will be able to pre-order iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max beginning Friday, September 14, with availability beginning Friday, September 21. The cheapest version of the iPhone Xs with the most limited amount of storage (64 GB) will cost $999, while the Xs Max's base price starts at $1,099.
