Apple launches iPhone XS and XS Max with Super Retina OLED displays

Share

The phone will be available to order on October 19 and will start shipping on October 26.

The listings have since vanished as Apple took the online Apple Store offline - customary before its live events - ahead of the new devices being officially unveiled in California on Wednesday evening.

However, it should be noted that of the three new iPhones introduced - the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR - not one of them included Apple's signature home button. It boasts the same set of features found in other iPhone X models. A bigger version will be called the iPhone XS Max, which looks to be about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, though the screen size is much larger.

T3 will shortly be going hands on with the iPhone Xr, so make sure to check back in to T3.com soon for the complete picture.

The iPhone XR will come in six colours: white, black, yellow, blue, coral and a special Product (Red) edition from the off. Apple is dropping the "Plus" that started with the iPhone 6 to highlight that this new phone features the largest display Apple has ever packed in a smartphone.

Instead of a dual camera, the iPhone XR features a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle lens.

The iPhone XR starts at $749 Dollars, which we anticipate translating as £749 and will be available to order from 19 October. As expected, the phones will now come with up to 512GB of storage, up from the 256GB max on last year's models.

CEO Tim Cook showed off the Apple XS, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,000.

The single-lense camera supports portrait mode, Smart HDR, and dynamic depth of field, just like the Xs and Xs Max. It still hasn't released that, and analysts expect the company to announce a date for it to ship. So here's a list of cases and covers and more for the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR. The only potential hiccup to a record-breaking quarter is the fact that the iPhone XS won't launch until October.

The new rotating crown now offers haptic feedback for scrolling through lists, so it's easier to get to specific items.

The device has also been fitted with an improved accelerometer and gyroscope that can detect if someone has fallen over, a feature that could be useful for older people. Combine with all of the other health features and the Apple Watch is becoming a seriously impressive device for helping you stay healthy.
