Design-wise, the iPhone Xr bears similarities to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max with a 6.1-inch all-screen build, slim bezels and the signature notch which incorporates Face ID and gestural navigation, but for a considerably lower price starting at $749 United States dollars, and available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models.

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.

Moving to the camera, both the iPhones will have two 12-MP cameras one of which will be a telephoto lens and the other will be a wide-angle lens.

Next up, the iPhone Xr, which as suspected, features a 6.1-inch LCD display.

To differentiate itself from the iPhone XS series, the XR gets the iPhone 5C treatment with a choice of six colours, namely Blue, White, Black, Yellow, Coral and Red.

'Apple's new phone's name is iphone XS which like every other iphone would be EXCESSively overpriced, ' @Bhavessshh tweeted.

To keep the price down, Apple gave the iPhone Xr an LED display instead of a more vibrant OLED panel, an aluminum body instead of a stainless steel, and haptic feedback for the touchscreen instead of pressure-sensitive 3D Touch. S4 is available September 21 with preorders starting Friday. It's also updating the portrait mode feature so users can fine-tune each image. The company calls their technology DSDS (dual-sim dual-standby).

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10. The iPhone XR is available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB storage variants.

That price point makes it less expensive than the iPhone 8 Plus; its affordable price combined with state-of-the-art technology is something the company is "very proud" of.

The new watch, positioned as a more comprehensive health device, will be able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers. The phones have iOS system-wide color management to provide supreme quality color accuracy. iPhone Xs Max features 3 million pixels for videos, games and videos.

But Ms Milanesi said the result did not account for the top iPhone's new features.

The iPhone Xr starts at $749 and will be available for purchase on Friday, Sept. 14. And while they may not be as radical a change as the iPhone X was past year (or bring back highly requested features like normal headphone jacks) these new iPhones do present their own unique improvements.
