Latest Apple tech includes new watch that can detect your heart problems

"When asked if they agreed with the statement "I would have paid even more for an iPhone X with a larger screen size had it been available" only five per cent strongly agreed and another 14 per cent said they somewhat agreed", she said.

The new device offers numerous high-end features of last year's iPhone X and this year's XS with a price that's in line with that of the iPhone 8 and older models.

The biggest news for most smartphone users was the announcement of the new phone's dual-Sim capability, meaning users will have access to two phone numbers on the same iPhone at the same time. Instead of the impressive IP68 dust and water resistance rating that the XS range has, the iPhone XR will only have IP67, which is an worldwide scale judging how water or dust resistant something is.

Apple's new iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS and iPhone XR smartphones support dual network connectivity option that has a combination of nanoSIM + eSIM.

Like the iPhone X, the XS has a 5.8-inch OLED screen, while the XS Max boasts a mammoth 6.5-inch OLED display.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled updated versions of its priciest iPhones along with a new smartwatch that allows users to take their own electrocardiograms, as the USA tech giant looks to boost its momentum in a sputtering market.

The screens on the iPhone XS and XS Max have 60% greater dynamic range than the iPhone X.

That combination of price, design, and features could make it popular with Apple fans who have been holding on to ageing phones. A breakthrough 12MP camera system with Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, enhanced bokeh, and all-new Depth Control.

"While it's now the cheapest new iPhone of the lot, the iPhone XR gets a large 6.1" edge to edge display that uses IPS instead of OLED.

The lack of a physical home button is compensated for by the single swipe up action from the bottom, which takes user to their home screen.

Apple just announced that its lower-cost iPhone is officially known as the iPhone XR. "The smartphone's base model starts at $749, and comes in six surprisingly vibrant colors - white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and the oddly-named "(PRODUCT) RED". As a primary camera, it has a 12 megapixel wide angle lens.

The Series 4 features the largest display compared to any Apple Watch.

Fall is a time for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and new iPhones.

They hit stores on September 21, 2018 with the iPhone XS priced at $999 (£999) and the XS Max a whopping $1,099 (£1,099).

It's all nice and shiny, but here's the kicker - the iPhone XS Max only starts at S$1,799, and that's just for the something with a measly 64gb capacity.
