Holy hell, the 512GB iPhone XS Max costs $1,449

The massive iPhone Xs Max sets a new display size record with a 6.5-inch display made up of 3.3 million pixels. All three ship with iOS 12 pre-installed.

The iPhone XS Max is expected to be the "Plus" version of the iPhone XS, with a larger screen.

Apple added that its Face ID recognition system is now faster and more secure using the TrueDepth camera. The processor in the new iPhones is more advanced than any rival product, capable of the kind of heavy lifting once consigned exclusively to supercomputers. The 7nm chip has 6.7 billion transistors and an 8-core dedicated machine-learning engine to analyze neural network data to figure out whether to run processes on the CPU, GPU, or neural engine.

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

Interestingly it's got a bigger screen than the XS, coming in a 6.1 inches. In a worst-case scenario, the iPhone SE will mark the last compact iPhone model to ever appear in an Apple store. There's also a $749 Xr model, with an LED screen and a single-lens rear camera, instead of the dual lenses of the more costly models. The cameras use what Apple is calling "Smart HDR" that composites shadows, highlights, and other details into a single image.

Schiller called this "a new era of photography", and "computational photography". The Xs will be available in Canada starting at $1,379 and the Xs Max will start at $1,519, according to an Apple press release.

The XS handsets are made from a surgical grade stainless steel in silver, space grey and gold, Schiller announced, and are dust and water-resistant up to IP68 grade.

'Apple's new phone's name is iphone XS which like every other iphone would be EXCESSively overpriced, ' @Bhavessshh tweeted. When that happened, Apple should have had a swallow-its-pride moment and just integrated the fingerprint scanner into the back of the phone where most people naturally rest their forefinger - where the Google Pixel devices put it.

The iPhone XR takes the notch, minimal bezels and a big screen, and packs them into an affordable iPhone.

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

The removal of 3D Touch as a navigation tool, substituted with a handicapped version that only launches the camera from the lock screen, is a real shame. While global smartphone market growth has stalled, Apple has kept revenue rising by lifting average selling prices.

The iPhone Xr model will be available in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red colors. If you could handle the iPhone 8 Plus you can handle the Xs Max. You'll have to wait a bit longer for the iPhone XR, which launches on 26 October, with preorders from 19 October.
