Apple's 2018 iPhone Event: What You Need to Know

Apple's 2018 iPhone Event: What You Need to Know

Apple also is expected to release an iPhone with minor updates to last year's $1,000 model and another version made of cheaper materials, including one with a traditional, backlit screen.

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 initial iPhone XS Max price is $1,099/£1,099. Naturally, the jokes about buying an iPhone with a kidney were back and so were the jokes about its chargers. It supports dual SIM, by introducing the eSIM. With Bollywood memes and dash of desi humour, these relatable jokes have left everyone ROFL-ing.

Kicking things off is the iPhone Xs - essentially the follow-up to the iPhone X. Made from surgical-grade stainless steel and featuring a new glass screen that's the most durable in any smartphone, the phone is available in gold, silver, space gray, and offers IP68 water resistance. One other perk: The iPhone XR will be available in a variety of colors including black, red, white, blue, coral and yellow. Pre-orders begin on October 19, and the phone will ship on October 26.

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.

The XR has Apple's new A12 Bionic processor, which is the same chip in the more expensive models. There's also a new watch face which is customisable for different occasions.

Nadal eventually won in five sets but it took all his huge powers to repel the lethal Del Potro forehand after nearly five hours. If he beats Del Potro to equal Sampras, only Roger Federer (20) and Nadal (17) stand above him in the all-time list.

iPhone XR price: How much does the iPhone XR cost?

The iPhone Xs, like its predecessor, has a screen that occupies nearly the entirety of the phone's frontage.

Design-wise, the iPhone Xr bears similarities to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max with a 6.1-inch all-screen build, slim bezels and the signature notch which incorporates Face ID and gestural navigation, but for a considerably lower price starting at $749 United States dollars, and available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models.

The rear-facing camera on the iPhone XS and XS Max have a f/1.8 wide-angle lens and f/2.4 telephoto lens.

The screen sizes are 5.8-inch (458 ppi) and 6.5-inch (458 ppi), and come with Apple's 3D Touch technology and a faster version of their Face ID system. But don't expect any retailers to beat those headline prices, as Apple gets very protective about its RRPs for at least a few weeks following launch. It's also updating the portrait mode feature so users can fine-tune each image. "Apple calls it the Liquid Retina Display, 6.1" 1729×828 resolution. The iPhone XR is available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage variants.
