Apple unveils updated Watch and priciest iPhone ever at latest launch

The tricky part about getting a feel for these new phones is that most of what makes them really important is happening under the hood.

So, when can you get your shakingly impatient hands on Apple's latest trio of phones?

"With the new iPhone X line-up and its pricing repositioning, Apple demonstrates once again it excels at extending the lifecycle of its product portfolio through incremental innovation, impressive technical specifications boosting the performance of its devices and smart marketing", said Forrester analyst Thomas Husson.

iPhone Xs Max will appeal those folks who thought the screen on the iPhone X was still too small, or just like a larger form factor for their phone. Price cuts for older models, with the home button, are also likely.

Thanks to the larger display, there's a new watch face that features up to eight complications that can be customized.

The flying elephant of the new lot is the iPhone Xs Max, which sounds like it could be a new flavor of Mountain Dew, or perhaps an extreme sport.

There were no big reveals at Apple Inc.'s annual gadget-fest this year, but plenty of little ones-impressive upgrades to the company's flagship iPhone and Apple Watch lines.

The phones will include the ability to support dual SIM cards, which means people can put two phone numbers or phone plans on the same phone. IPhones fetched an average price of $724 during the April-June period, a almost 20 per cent increase from a year earlier.

The A12 Bionic chip has an 8-core design - allowing it to run more advanced machine learning. It can handle 5 trillion operations each second.

Apple's new iPhone Xs and Xr models represent the next iteration of the company's previous iPhone X model it debuted past year. Both numbers would work simultaneously on one device.

In Germany, the 512GB iPhone XS Max costs 1.649 euros or $1,917, a $468 difference. But that's exactly what the iPhone XR has managed to do at the 2018 iPhone launch event.

In addition, unlike the stainless steel compositions of the Xs and Xs Max, the Xr is made of "7000 series aerospace grade aluminum" with a glass back for wireless charging, while opting for a single 12-megapixel wide-angle rear lens camera, rather than dual lenses.

The iPhone XR will come in six colours: white, black, yellow, blue, coral and a special Product (Red) edition from the off. Also inside the new model are improved accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, which can now detect when the user falls. It starts at $749 for a 64GB version, and there are also 128GB and 256GB versions.

iPhone XR starts at $750 and won't be available until October 26, 2018.

The iPhone XR, which was also rumored to be named the iPhone XC, is expected to be a rare budget option from Apple, using an LCD screen as opposed to a nicer, more expensive OLED screen.
