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 XS Max can be equated to a "Plus" sized device, packing a supersized 6.5-inch OLED screen into a phone that is roughly the same size as Apple's previous Plus devices, which had 5.5-inch screens. On the camera front, the XR features a single 12-megapixel wide-angle camera on the rear, with the same specifications as the XS.

The iPhone XS Max packs much of the same specs as its smaller sibling, although Apple says the battery is a little stronger, providing an hour and a half extra compared to the iPhone X.

The biggest difference between the XR and the XS is the display - instead of an OLED panel, the XR is relying on an LCD panel.

The XR will come in fancy colours like blue, yellow, project red, white, black and coral.

Rumors suggest the tech giant will unveil three smartphones at its Wednesday event: an iPhone XS, a Plus model, and a third option with a more affordable price tag.

The 2018 Apple keynote in Cupertino on September 12 is expected to cover three new iPhone releases, plus news on the next generation of the Apple Watch. Pre-orders for the Apple Watch 4 begin on September 14, while shipping starts September 21.

The document also notes that all replacements for iPhone SE, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X will cost $29 only until December 31st. This is a cheaper version of the iPhone and is made from all aluminum and glass and comes in a variety of colors.

The iPhone X didn't sell as well as analysts anticipated, but fared well enough to help Apple boost the average iPhone selling price by almost 20 percent. The LCD iPhone XR will be available at Rs 76,900 in India. Apple is calling this the Liquid Retina display, and it has bezels slightly thicker than the iPhone Xs and Xs Max.

iPhone Xr should be considered the successor to the iPhone 8, and it is the cheapest of the new iPhones.

But when desi users found out that Apple has finally imbibed the dual SIM feature, it led to another round of jokes. The depth of field can be adjusted by users in the Photos app, and Portrait Mode bokeh has also been improved. Come launch, you'll be expected to fork over at least £1,099 for one and if you wanted the top-end configuration with 512GB of storage, be prepared to shed a hefty £1,449.

It will be available to order from 19 October, and will start shipping on 26 October.
