Apple Event: 5 Big Things Announced, Including New iPhones

It contains the same hardware as the iPhone Xs but utilises a 6.1-inch LCD display instead with "liquid retina" resolution, or 1792×828 to be exact.

The tech giant unveiled a new iteration of the flagship iPhone X with a 5.8in screen dubbed the iPhone XS - pronounced "ten S" rather than "excess" as well as the iPhone XS Max, which comes with a larger 6.5in screen.

Last year's iPhone X was an oddly out-of-cycle update for the iconic smartphone lineup. You're still getting a 12 megapixel camera, but you'll only have a single lens on this model. The 6.1-inch iPhone would also have the edge-to-edge screen and Face ID, the face-detecting security feature that replaces a fingerprint sensor.

Unlike the iPhone XS, this one comes in a variety of six different colours including: white, blue, yellow, black, coral and even a Product RED version right off the bat.

The phones may raise the iPhone average sales price, boosting revenue and profit, while expanding the total number of active Apple devices to support sales of accessories and digital services.

The iPhone Xs will have 30 minutes of additional battery life compared to the current iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max, which was designed with the largest battery ever used in an iPhone, will get 1.5 hours more. The larger model will be called iPhone XS Max.

The new Watches have a new back that offers a completely new electrical sensor that does an actual ECG to check your heart health.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available in gold, silver, and space gray color options and 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities. We'll see new iPhones, probably new iPad Pro models, new AirPods, and we will more than likely see a new MacBook model for good measure.

Just like last year's iPhone X model. This gives the device a bigger display than an iPhone 8 Plus in a smaller overall handset. Of course, there's always the possibly of a shocking "One more thing", but true shocks are no longer easy for Apple to pull off. Like its predecessor, it uses a combination of multiple high-energy processing cores for more intensive tasks, as well as multiple high-efficiency cores for light work like checking email and browsing the web.

First reported by ATH, the Apple site lists cases for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR in the XML file associated with the site.

The new phones include improved augmented reality features. This custom-designed eight-core system can run AI code at 5 trillion operations per second. Pre-orders will start on October 19th and the phone will hit store shelves on October 26. This handy accessory, which lets you use older 3.5mm headphones with newer iPhones, is now a standalone accessory that'll cost you $9.

Does it still have wireless charging?
