Tech giant unveils 3 new iPhone X versions, new Apple Watch

Indian users have always been demanding dual sim in the iPhone.

The iPhone XS's 5.8-inch display is bigger than the screen on the 8 Plus and features 2.7 million pixels and 458 ppi.

While most of us were enjoying our recommended hours of sleep last night, Apple announced three new additions to their iPhone lineup - their latest, greatest, and verily, expensivest pieces of smartphones that fanboys will sell their firstborn for.

The biggest of the bunch is the iPhone Xs Max - the largest iPhone yet. However, it's massive 6.5-inch OLED display will make it appear much larger than the iPhone 8 Plus did. You can therefore take ECG readings yourself, which are stored in the Health app on your iPhone and could be useful by your doctor if there is anything wrong.

What's more, it lacks the telephoto lens found not only in the XS and XS Max but in previous years' Plus models. Two are performance cores that are up to 15 percent faster and use 40 percent less power.

The smart watch is powered by next-generation S4 chip with a custom 64-bit dual-core processor.

The camera has been improved as well. 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 Xs Max will start at $1099.

As we mentioned before, these events typically announce the newest iPhone. The phones resist liquids like salt water and beer, and can allow for dual SIM cards for when you just need two phone numbers at once. It's a more affordable version of the XS, and it comes in a number of bright colors.

Traditionally, Apple has kept quiet on the specific sales figures for the Apple Watch since it first launched more than three years ago.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be available for preorder from September 14th and they will be available in stores from September 21st. Of course, there are plenty of case manufacturers who haven't got their new line up in place yet, but if you want to see a few iPhone XR cases you can buy right now for launch day, check out the link below!

Introducing the device, marketing head Phil Schiller said the firm wanted to "reach as many people as possible".

"While it's now the cheapest new iPhone of the lot, the iPhone XR gets a large 6.1" edge to edge display that uses IPS instead of OLED.

Apple aficionados in the Middle East will not have long to wait before they get their hands on what the company are calling the "most handsome and advanced" iPhones. Finally, rather than offering 3D touch, the iPhone XR will use a haptic touch system similar to the recent MacBook Pro trackpads.
