The news was met with instant ridicule across social media, as Twitter users likened it to everything from energy drinks to commentary on its "excessive" cost.

Superfans of Apple technology were on the edge of their seats as CEO Tim Cook explained all the flashy new phones dropping this year. Buyers get a 12MP sensor alongside optical image stabilization, twice the number of focus points, an improved True Tone flash, and a wide-angle lens.

It's also worth noting that the iPhone XS is a tad heavier than the iPhone X. While this shouldn't affect the ability to use an older case with the new phone, there's a slight possibility cases with kickstands or clips may not be tested for the added weight of the iPhone XS.

While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display.

They hit stores on September 21, 2018 with the iPhone XS priced at $999 (£999) and the XS Max a whopping $1,099 (£1,099).
