  • Apple touts its largest screens, cheaper models in iPhone revamp

Both are loaded with Apple's new A12 Bionic chip, which Apple claims runs run 15 per cent faster than the A11 chip in the iPhone X.

You'd think that the yearly iPhone update would be the big news, but it really wasn't-the new Apple Watch has a bigger display with curved edges, and the software has been dramatically updated with new watch faces that take advantage of the new display.

It follows previous rumours that the company will introduce a larger screened 6.5in iPhone - allegedly the XS Max - alongside the new 5.8in display iPhone XS, which is the same size screen as last year's iPhone X. The device kills the 3D touch feature but added some haptic feedback, so the screen vibrates a bit in response to touch.

The phones are equipped with faster processors and better memory capacities than ever before, relying on Apple's new A12 Bionic chip.

Apple also pulled out one of its favorite marketing tricks and will offer the iPhone XR in six colors: black, red, white, yellow, coral and blue.

The iPhone XR will be available starting at $1029 CAD and customers will be able to pre-order iPhone XR beginning Friday, October 19 with availability beginning Friday, October 26. What Apple took away, however, was an low-priced way to enter its smartphone ecosystem.

In most ways, this year's iPhones look like last year's iPhone X.

Apple has announced two new iPhones during an event on its Californian campus, including its largest ever handset. New technology in the form of the iPhone's True Depth cameras delayed the launch to November. The cameras are Dual OIS.

'The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminum and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six handsome finishes.

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

There were other methods, very sophisticated attempts by villains to acquire these elements. She tweeted: "My bank... are experiencing extremely high call volumes due to this breach!"

Instead of using the button to unlock your phone, the new models come with Apple's FaceID facial-recognition technology.

The pair are the successor to the iPhone X which was released last November and retailed from £999.

There was a subtle re-branding from fitness to overall health during today's Apple Watch introduction. The iPhone is the biggest reason Apple became a trillion-dollar company; until another product fills its shoes, the iPhone remains key to its future. There are also a few new features, such as a watch faces to help you take a deep breath, or the ability to manage your calorie intake. There was also a cheaper device, the iPhone XR, which is a follow-up to the iPhone8. "It will feel like they have a device that's modern because it will look like one of the new ones but not have the cost".

Pricing for the iPhone Xr starts at $749.

In addition to new models, Apple is also expected to unveil a gold-colour option for the two new OLED-screened phones, a new version of its wireless Airpods earbuds with wireless charging and a new version of its Apple Watch with a bigger display.

Here's Apple's new iPhone from every angle
If you're wondering why Apple has made a decision to give up on 'Plus, ' it's probably because of the aforementioned LCD iPhone . According to a report by 9to5Mac, the Cupertino-based tech giant is planning to name the large screen iPhone as iPhone Xs Max .
