Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

The iPhone XR is the cheapest device with the 6.1 LCD screen with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels.

Apple has unveiled details of its latest in-house Arm-based system-on-chip (SoC), the A12 Bionic, powering its next-generation smartphones - and in doing so may beat rival Huawei to market with a commercial 7nm part.

iPhone XS and XS Max Specs in China: iPhone XS is the smallest device among all the iPhones that have launched at the yesterday's Apple event.

All three devices will start shipping September 21.

"Additionally starting price for the 5.8" iPhone Xs remains the same as of its predecessor. Were you on the fence about the new iPhones and Apple Watch Series 4, but now feel like you should place an order after all? Gareth notes that the industry were expecting this model to be delayed slightly, releasing after the iPhone XS, so a concurrent release is most welcome.

Judging by the reaction online, the big star players among hardcore Apple fans are the Apple Watch Series 4 - which comes with a blow away number of compelling features - and the iPhone XS Max. But if you want to actually plug those earbuds into your iPhone, you'll need to get a dongle, sold separately, for $9.

The iPhone XS Max makes a lot of sense as Apple's most popular new iPhone, since it feeds into a year-long pent up demand for a plus-sized iPhone X version.

Gareth is very clear in his summation of the iPhone XR's camera system, which he states is "the weakest of the three phones" just announced by the American maker. Here's how you can pre-order yours right now.

The third iPhone announced on Wednesday, the "affordable" iPhone XR, is coming a bit later; pre-orders start on October 19, and shipments will commence on October 26.
