Apple's Watch Series 4 built-in speaker is now 50 per cent louder, optimized for phone calls, Siri and Walkie-Talkie, and the microphone has been relocated, to reduce echo for better sound quality. If you're in the market to replace your phone, you may be considering buying the latest and greatest Apple has to offer.

The iPhone XS Max will sell for $1,249 in 256GB and $1,099 in 64GB configurations.

Yet if that is not enough to convince them it is a worthy upgrade, the XR also offers numerous same cutting-edge features found on the top-of-the-line Xs models. The good news? You don't really need an iPhone to perform these experiments and get them on camera.

If the speculation pans out, the even-bigger iPhone would represent Apple's attempt to feed consumers' appetite for increasingly bigger screens as they rely on smartphones to watch and record video, as well as take photos wherever they are. This means you might not have to carry around a work and personal phone anymore.

With the launch of the iPhone XS, Apple is no longer selling the iPhone X in the UK.

The phones are powered by A12 engine with an 8-core design with a smart compute system. IPhones fetched an average price of $724 during the April-June period, a almost 20 per cent increase from a year earlier. It can handle 5 trillion operations each second.

The new device offers numerous high-end features of last year's iPhone X and this year's Xs - but with a price that is in line with that of the iPhone 8 and older models.

Apple will start taking preorders for Xs and Xs Max Friday, and they will begin shipping a week later on September 21.

Made from aerospace grade aluminium and with an edge to edge LCD screen, dubbed the Liquid Retina display, the 6.1-inch handset is actually considerably smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus in the hand. This phone comes in funky colours like Coral, White, Yellow, Black, Blue and even the Product Red. In 2016, the price of the iPhone 7 Plus topped out at $969. You'll have to wait for our full review to know how the camera of iPhone XR measures against the rest. Also inside the new model are improved accelerometer and gyroscope sensors, which can now detect when the user falls. The XR has a 6.1-inch screen, which lands it right between the XS and XS Max in terms of size. Both are also expected to get a bit more battery life, with the XS getting roughly 30 minutes more and the XS Max getting an hour more. Though the headphones got off to a slow start, they have quickly helped Apple capture 26% of the USA wireless headphone market, according to NPD Group.
