IPhone XR revealed: Price, features and everything you need to know

"No one from Apple I've spoken to today will say a word about AirPower other than that they have nothing to say about it today", he wrote in a blog post published Wednesday.

The iPhone XS Max is expected to be the "Plus" version of the iPhone XS, with a larger screen. Schiller called it the "smartest and most powerful chip ever in a smartphone".

Apple has confirmed that orders for the unlocked SIM-free iPhone XS handset will commence this Friday September, 14. Apple is calling this "Super Retina".

Pricing. Taking the price of its flagship iPhone to almost $1,000 past year helped Apple squeeze more revenue out of the device even though unit sales remained flat. If you're in the market to replace your phone, you may be considering buying the latest and greatest Apple has to offer.

The real improvement, however, is how its Apple-designed image signal processor (ISP) works. Highlights of the new timepiece are its significantly larger screen options, twice-as-fast processor, new sensors, and watchOS 5.

In the Unites States, the XR will be going for $749 (Sh74,900) making it the cheapest gadget that they unveiled while XS will cost $999 (Sh100,000), and XS Max will be among the most expensive with the price set at $1,099 (Sh110,000). "I'll have to sell off both", joked one user on the platform.

Those needing the (costly) upgrades to their current iPhones can start pre-ordering the iPhone XS and iPhone XS tomorrow, and both will be available in stores on Sept 21.

The Xr will be available about a month later than the other two models, with orders starting October 19, and it will ship a week later.

The iPhone XR looks a a bit like a cross between an iPhone 8 Plus and an iPhone X. Unlike the iPhone X, XS, and XS Plus, it has aerospace-grade aluminum side plating rather than stainless steel, but it still has a glass back.

You can find more information announced during Apple's iPhone keynote 2018 in the stories below. The 6.1-inch features a bright LCD screen and comes in a variety of colors, including white, black, blue, coral and red.

It basically stuck with the same design from 2014's iPhone 6 models to last year's iPhone 8.

The device only has one camera - a 12 pixel wide-angle camera - but Apple added a similar portrait feature found in its dual camera devices, which blurs the background. Thanks to its neural engine and ISP that's identical to the iPhone XS, the performance is still excellentl. Also inside the new model are improved accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, which can now detect when the user falls. The XS has the smallest physical footprint of the three, while the XS Max comes with an enormous screen of 6.5-inches. The 256GB version starts at $1,149/£1,149 with the mighty 512GB model at $1,349/£1,349.
