The screen size stays at 5.8 inches, and the phone in general looks very similar to last year's model.

No. The iPhone XS, XS Max and even XR devices that will sell in the Chinese, Hong Kong and Macau markets will receive dual SIM smartphones without eSIM.

Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams discussed the company's health technology features that it was embedding in its new Apple Watches.

Surprisingly there is also a third iPhone XR which has been priced at $749 The 6.1-inch phone comes in various colors such as white, black, blue and coral red. This system has a new wide-angle camera with larger pictures and a telephoto lens with a wider aperture, making it so both should do a bit better in low-light than their predecessor. With the most expensive iPhone XS Max costing £1449, that might seem a little unfair on Apple's part. With the XR, which was until recently rumoured to be the XC, the physical home button on iPhones has now officially been consigned to history. The 6.5-inch OLED display offers resolution of 2688 x 1442 pixels. The front camera is the same as the iPhone XS with a 7MP f/2.2 TrueDepth camera that also supports Portrait Mode and Animoji. It shares numerous same features as the Xs - including the processor, Face ID and no home button.

The XS model will set you back $1,629 for the 64GB model and $2,199 for the 512GB.

Apple's iPhone XR is a more intriguing smartphone than the two premium iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices. Last year's iPhone X - pronounced "ten" - represented a major redesign. The first new design for the watch since its launch three years ago, the new Apple Watch has a almost edge-to-edge display and comes in both 40mm and 44mm sizes. The edges are noticeably rounder, though it still retains the square look. It's "Digital Crown" scroll wheel now has haptic feedback by default when navigating through menus, and its speakers now produce 50% more volume than the Watch 3. Also, there is a next-gen accelerometer and gyroscope that both are able to detect hard falls.

The Apple-designed A12 Bionic, the smartest and most powerful chip in a smartphone, features the first 7-nanometer chip ever in a smartphone that delivers industry-leading performance in a more power-efficient design. However, those expecting a better battery will be disappointed, as the Watch 4 promises the same 18-hour lifespan.
