Bigger, pricier iPhone shown at Apple event Wednesday

Bigger, pricier iPhone shown at Apple event Wednesday

However, it's massive 6.5-inch OLED display will make it appear much larger than the iPhone 8 Plus did.

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.

"When asked if they agreed with the statement "I would have paid even more for an iPhone X with a larger screen size had it been available" only five per cent strongly agreed and another 14 per cent said they somewhat agreed", she said.

The iPhone XR display has over 1.4 million pixels and a 326 ppi pixel density.

The phone has the same TrueDepth Face ID camera (and notch) on the front as the iPhone XS. Although there are two iPhone models that have been removed from Apple India website hinting that these will no longer be available from Apple, but company's website is still showing reduced MRP for these iPhone 6s and iPhone X.

That story was based on documents made available to the newsmagazine by the whistleblower platform Football Leaks. Ronaldo, one of the biggest names in world sport, joined Italian champions Juventus during the summer transfer.

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. 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).

Apple's newest phones feature faster processors and better memory capacities than their predecessor.

Offering three colour choices, namely gold, silver and space grey, the price fluctuates based on storage space, which starts at 64GB and goes all the way up to 512GB.

'The best iPhones we've ever made by a long shot, ' Schiller said.

The new iPhones comes powered by Apple's custom-designed A12 chip which includes a six-core CPU, a quad-core GPU, and a dedicated neural engine similar which now can handle five trillion AI operations per second.
