Apple also announced a new iPhone XR starting at $749, available in October, with a 6.1-inch display to broaden its pool of buyers.

On the front of the camera is a multi-sensor system featuring a dot projector, infrared camera, and a main 7-megapixel RGB camera with a faster sensor and an f/2.2 aperture lens.

The XS Max features the largest screen and battery that Apple has ever used for an iPhone, a landmark reflected by a £1,099 starting price, which rises to £1,449 for the 512GB storage version.

A new "cheaper" iPhone X device was also launched, called the iPhone XR.

The biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red.

Apple introduced their latest design by saying that the iPhone X is allegedly the #1 smartphone in the world.

This even-bigger iPhone, which will be available on September 21 - with orders open the week before - represents Apple's attempt to feed consumers' appetite for increasingly larger screens as they rely on smartphones to watch and record video, as well as take photos wherever they are. In India, the iPhone XR will be available slightly late on October 26. It has a larger screen and a built-in sensor that can detect irregular heart-rates and perform an electrocardiogram, as well as detect when a user has fallen.

Schiller says the new iPhone can take even more detailed bokeh photos, these pictures blur the background and give more emphasis to the portrait.

Called iPhone XS, it is made of surgical steel.

Apple also announced that the iOS 12 software update will be available for download on September 17th. Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max also support dual-SIM connectivity. Even with all this power, iPhone XR lasts up to an hour and a half longer than iPhone 8 Plus.

The A12 Bionic processor that powers the new iPhones is a 7nm chip with 6.9 billion transistors, a 6-core CPU (2 high power cores and 4 high-efficiency), a 4-core GPU that's up to 50% faster than before, and an 8-core neural engine that can process 5 trillion machine learning operations per second. Apple first introduced the new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, which are the successors to the iPhone X.

While it appears that Apple is cutting corners with the display, the iPhone XR is packing similar top notch hardware as the iPhone XS.

The new watch can also detect falls and contact emergency officials.

Tell us the truth.did you ever imagine that one day you'd be contemplating spending more than a grand for a telephone? And it doesn't have 3D Touch, Apple's technology that typically shows users more options or information if they press down on an app icon or menu option.

It's the first major design overhaul of the Watch since its debut more than three years ago. It will come in Silver, Gold, Space Gray, Polished Space Black, and a new Gold Stainless color.

The abilities of the app have been given FDA approval in the US.
