Apple also launched an identical looking bigger model, the 6.5-inch OLED screen iPhone XS Max, and the slightly cheaper iPhone XR with a 6.1-inch LCD screen. Hindustan Times delivers the news across all social media platforms, on the web, and at your doorstep.

Apple is preparing to unveil their new iPhone at a big tech event, and the public can see the big reveal by streaming it online.

The idea is simple: you'll be able to talk directly with other Apple Watch users just by speaking into your wrist. But, people are already reading it as X, and that's likely to catch on.

Philip W. Schiller, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing of Apple, speaks about the new Apple iPhone XR at an Apple Inc product launch event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. And it costs considerably less, when compared to the iPhone XS.

"We all knew this was going to be a transitional but not transformational phone update", said Trip Miller, managing partner at hedge fund Gullane Capital, which owns Apple shares. Is this an SNL skit?' another user commented.

Display The one major difference between the iPhone XS and iPhone XR lies in the display.

Before Apple's official unveiling of the iPhone X a year ago, many analysts expected its anticipated revamped design to spark a massive upgrade cycle.

The pair have a similar design and features to the existing iPhone X - including its much-hyped Face ID unlock system - with a few key additions.


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.

As for the XR's screen, it's just as bright as the OLEDs, but its HD screen resolution is lower than the screens found on the XS and XS Max.

The rear sports a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with improved two-tone flash.

"At 1,099 dollars it's the most expensive iPhone to date, but I have little doubt that it'll be a huge success". Even though its thickness got reduced and it offers more performance and features, the new watch is said to maintain the same battery life longevity as its predecessors.

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. It's available in six colours - white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and red - and its edges are made of aluminium rather than the iPhone XS' "surgical grade steel". The iPhone XS is available in Silver, Space Grey, and Gold.

In any case, the new products have garnered a lot of excitement.

That's not to say Apple doesn't have cheaper offerings. Of it, we have this really cool video about "experimental shots".
