Apple launches the new, affordable iPhone XR. iPhone XR will have a display measuring 6.1 inches with an LCD display. It's got the same basic design of the iPhone X and XS, with a large edge-to-edge screen.

Adding on the camera capabilities of the iPhone X with its 12-megapixel dual camera system, iPhone XS and XS Max introduce Smart HDR, which increases detail and dynamic range of photographs.

By combining the image with machine learning the XS can perform instant red-eye reduction as well as a new and improved Portrait Mode that lets you change the depth-of-field after you've taken the photo. It is also running on the new 7nm A12 Bionic Chip and it retains the same 12MP f/1.8 main camera that's assisted with OIS.

The iPhone Xr sports a bigger display compared to the iPhone 8 Plus, and unlike the iPhone Xs and Xs Max's OLED displays, it features a different setup which Apple calls, "Liquid Retina" boasting the most color accuracy in the industry, with wide color support and True Tone for a more natural viewing experience.

Apple has just announced the new iPhone XS and its bigger brother XS Max. The limited time we had with the iPhone XS Max, we were impressed by the OLED display Apple has incorporated.

This means it can be submerged up to 1 metre for a duration of up to 30 minutes.

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

You can pre-order the iPhone Xr beginning October 19 and it will ship on October 26.

The new devices are pricey, with iPhone XR starting from U$749 (S$1,028) while the iPhone XS comes in at U$999 (S$1,371) for the 64GB model and the supersized iPhone XS Max 64GB model starts from U$1,099 (S$1,508). For the benefit of owning an iPhone with a 6.5-inch screen you will have a hard time to carry that around in the back pocket of your jeans.

iPhone XR comes in five colour options of white, black, blue, yellow and coral. Both the Xs and Xs Max are fitted with a dual 12-megapixel camera arrangement, dual-SIM support and can be equipped with up to 512GB of storage. The iPhone 8 starts at $599.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled updated versions of its priciest iPhones along with a new smartwatch that allows users to take their own electrocardiograms, as the USA tech giant looks to boost its momentum in a sputtering market.

The watch will also be able to detect when the wearer is falling, a feature Apple say could help in emergencies.
