Apple has unveiled the details of the new iPhones-iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR-as well as the new Apple Watch Series 4.

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.

At 10 a.m., Tim Cook will take the stage at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, to unveil the company's iPhone and Apple Watch strategy for the next year.

The new iPhones have more powerful processors and cameras, and a dual-SIM card feature for top-of-the-line devices.

With the Apple Watch Series 4 and the Galaxy Watch are two new smartwatches of the current market leaders of smart computer watches.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X.

Apple - like Google, Samsung and other big tech companies - has lately been talking up a newfound interest in digital health and limiting excess screen time.

Apple Inc introduced its largest-ever iPhone and a watch that detects heart problems on Wednesday in an attempt to get customers to upgrade to more expensive devices in the face of stagnant global demand for smartphones.

Team members said they remained calm throughout their ordeal ― without food or supplies ― through a lot of prayer and meditation. The boys were retrieved one-by-one, with each rescue effort taking nearly eight hours per person.

While the U.S.is the big launch for many of our readers, the Apple Watch 4 goes on sale in many other countries worldwide.

Apple's newest iPhone will again test the limits of how much people are willing to pay for the latest technology.

Apple accessories including leather and silicone cases in a range of colours will be available starting at Rs. 3500 (MRP), while the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max Leather Folio will be available for Rs. 9900 ( MRP). Therefore, expect plenty of news about the Apple Watch, AirPods, and maybe the AirPower charging pad.

The 2018 Apple keynote in Cupertino on September 12 is expected to cover three new iPhone releases, plus news on the next generation of the Apple Watch.

It also pushed smartphone prices into the stratosphere with the iPhone X retailing in Australia for $1579 and $1829. Apple also claimed its latest smartwatch offers 18 hours of battery life. Dubbed the iPhone XS, it's an upgrade in a number of ways but not the complete overhaul that the iPhone X was a year ago.

Powering all three iPhones is Apple's own 7nm six-core A12 Bionic CPU. Now we'll see an even higher end version of that phone.

The display on the iPhone XS Max has 3.3 million pixels and the same pixel density as the iPhone XS. Apple has also replaced TouchID with a more accurate FaceID feature. The strategy has helped Apple become the first publicly-traded USA company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion earlier this year.
