The things Apple forgot to announce at this year's keynote presentation

The things Apple forgot to announce at this year's keynote presentation”

The iPhone Xr sports a bigger display compared to the iPhone 8 Plus, and unlike the iPhone Xs and Xs Max's OLED displays, it features a different setup which Apple calls, "Liquid Retina" boasting the most color accuracy in the industry, with wide color support and True Tone for a more natural viewing experience.

The iPhone XS's 5.8-inch display is bigger than the screen on the 8 Plus and features 2.7 million pixels and 458 ppi.

The listings have since vanished as Apple took the online Apple Store offline - customary before its live events - ahead of the new devices being officially unveiled in California on Wednesday evening. The focus of the event is surely the iPhone, especially the two premium models, which will likely be called the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Similar to the iPhone X, the XR gets a notch which also houses the same advance sensors which enable Face ID authentication. While retaining the original iconic design, the fourth-generation Apple Watch has been refined, combining new hardware and software enhancements into a unified form.

The leaked image suggests the handsets will have a new gold colour scheme, which will join the grey and white designs available on the current iPhone line-up, says The Daily Telegraph.

If you're not already foaming at the mouth at the £999 starting price, you might also be interested to discover that the iPhone Xs represents the next era of Apple smartphones: it's the first IP68-rated iPhone; the one with the biggest screen (6.5in on the Max); has the biggest battery; and its display is fitted with an HDR10 panel.

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.

Apple iPhone XS Max 256GB Rs. 1,24,900. The rear camera section, however, boasts only one lens - the 12MP wide-angle camera as available on the elder iPhone XS models.

And, Schiller said, the XS line-up features 'the most attractive iPhone we've ever made'.

The newest and priciest iPhone "didn't help Apple grow its user base but handsomely contributed with dollars to top line, bottom line and market cap", Counterpoint Research analysts said in a note Tuesday. The new Apple Watch 4 comes in 40mm and 44mm sizes, offering up a bigger screen than the older models.

In case you hadn't heard, Apple announced three new iPhones today.

Apple will no longer include include a free 3.5mm jack conversion dongle with newly-purchased iPhones.

The new series 4 Apple Watch will go on sale starting at $399 for the Global Positioning System variant and the Cellular model will start at $499.

The iPhone XS looks more or less identical to the iPhone X, which is no surprise given that this is an "S" model.

As for the other announcements, nobody can be sure, but it's expected that iOS 12 will finally receive a launch date. Apple said that the ECG app was granted a De Novo classification by the FDA, which is a pretty big deal.
