Apple iPhone Xs, Xs Max: 5 coolest features

Apple appears to have leaked the names of three new iPhones on its own website

The iPhone XS comes in gold, space gray, and silver. The iPhone Xr will be available in white, black, blue, coral, yellow and red.

For those who travel or want to swap between different phone numbers on a single device, the phones support a dual SIM.

As Business Insider revealed, a few stealthy sites were able to dig into Apple's own website code to uncover details about the new phones - the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR - before the official launch. It was a low-priced, colourful version of the iPhone 5S that used slightly less expensive materials to produce a very nice, less expensive phone.

Speaking of which, let's talk about the not-so-headline-grabbing iPhone XR. But it is still selling its old 4.7-inch iPhone 7 for $449 and the iPhone 8 for $599, both of which are slightly shorter and thinner than the new lineup. It's certainly cheaper than the $999 iPhone XS, and since it starts at $749, it's certainly nice to see Apple releasing phones that don't cost $1000. The XS and XS Max have stainless steel sides, while the XR's aluminium railings aren't as sturdy or dense and it doesn't feel as premium.

With its bezel-less design and curved corners, the 6.5-inch XS Max doesn't feel too big in my hands.

Apple introduced its first £1,000 smartphone - the iPhone X - last year, and despite a slight drop in sales, the company has reported increased revenue and profit during 2018. The A12 Bionic can process 5 trillion operations per second.

Will we get one more thing?

Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are styled similarly to the iPhone X with an edge-to-edge display and glass back.

You can pre-order the iPhone Xr beginning October 19 and it will ship on October 26.

The massive iPhone Xs Max sets a new display size record with a 6.5-inch display made up of 3.3 million pixels.

This does beg the question of whether anyone with an Apple Watch will be able to chat to anyone else with the gadget.

Most analysts predicted the eventual end of the home button after last year's keynote when Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said FaceID would be the "future of how we unlock our smartphones and protect our sensitive information".

"I believe Series 4 will sell better than all previous models". Apple has also added support for Core ML as well as AR Gaming and tracking.

The dial on the side, called the digital crown, now has haptic feedback to feel vibrations. The microphone has been moved, to offer better phone calls clarity away from the speaker, and the speaker is now 50% louder than before.

Apple's Watch Series 4 wearables now boast the largest screens ever. The latter feature has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the company said.

Earlier, Apple Watch Series 3 featured an eSIM and so did the Google Pixel 2 (but only in the U.S. markets).

The fall detection upgrade is expected to appeal to worker safety concerns in factories or other industrial settings, as well as to elderly or disabled users.

Apple's 12-inch MacBook laptop starts at $1,299.

For everyone, regardless of iPhone age, iOS 12 is fundamentally reorganising notifications: From now on, alike notifications will stack rather than overflow your notification tray.
