Apple event 2018: 3 new iPhones, new watch, not much else

iPhone XS release date, price, photos, and specifications

The leak, discovered in new product page listings of the Apple.com sitemap by the site All Things How, appears to confirm the three new phones will be called the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR.

Apple's event was held at the Steve Jobs Theater in its new circular headquarters in Cupertino, California, named after the company's co-founder who wowed the world with the first iPhone in 2007.

The iPhone XS and XS Max are two sizes of the same device, while the iPhone XR, a 6.1-inch phone with a bright LCD screen, falls somewhere between the iPhone 8 and iPhone X in terms of price. Furthermore, the Xr model lacks 3D Touch, but instead, incorporates a "Haptic Touch", which Apple is marketing, as a long-press is accompanied with haptic feedback. The GPU is up to 50% faster than the GPU in the A11 Bionic processor in the iPhone X. The A12 Bionic chip can handle up to 5 trillion operations per second, compared to the 600 billion for the iPhone X. Made from 7000 series aerospace grade aluminium, it comes in white, black, blue, and coral yellow. You'll have to wait a bit longer for the iPhone XR, which launches on 26 October, with preorders from 19 October.

Although Apple has kept the iPhone XR as just a single-lens 12MP camera, it's still got plenty of smarts on the inside.

During Apple's event last September, despite the iPhone's dramatic redesign, the standout announcement for me were the changes to the Apple Watch.

We all know that Apple dislikes physical connectors and introducing a secondary eSIM seems to be the safest way to remove the SIM slot entirely from future iPhones.

The iPhone XR takes the notch, minimal bezels and a big screen, and packs them into an affordable iPhone. All of this unlocks new experiences for games, photography, video editing and graphics-intensive apps while still offering great battery life.

Just like last year's iPhone X model.

Joining the iPhone XS is the all-new iPhone XS Max.

Apple said it's the first ECG product offered over the counter directly to consumers. Google has explicitly ruled out the possibility of a Pixel smartwatch this year, leaving them without any wearable story to tell at all (sorry, old and exhausted Wear OS watches are not a proper Apple Watch analog). It's likely to be one of the most-used features of the new phones. There are also a few new features, such as a watch faces to help you take a deep breath, or the ability to manage your calorie intake. Like the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, the iPhone Xr uses the A12 Bionic processor. The trio of new devices offers a chance to do the same.

iPhone XR camera: What's the camera like on the iPhone Xr? The new Apple Watch Series 4, starting at $399, is $70 more expensive than the previous Series 3 version, and the LTE version will run you an extra $100 if you're into paying the premium (along with a data connection) for your wearable.
