Apart from unveiling the latest iPhone Xs range and the iPhone Xr, Apple also announced its next generation smartwatch, the Apple Watch 4.

Apple's announced a new smartphone model on Wednesday, the iPhone XR.

If confirmed, the 6.5in iPhone XS Max is expected to be the company's most expensive to date, surpassing the £999 iPhone X introduced this time previous year. On the front, it has a 7-megapixel camera that is capable of Face ID and portrait mode photography. On the back of the device is a vertical camera setup which houses two cameras and a flash.

The A12 Bionic chip has an 8-core design - allowing it to run more advanced machine learning. This time Apple has also given dual SIM support.

The phone includes a 12MP dual lens camera with "smart HDR" with "zero shutter lag" thanks to its new processor, taking multiple frame shots at once, even of moving shots, to combine the pictures together to "merge them into one ideal photo".

iPhone XR also comes with a single camera setup as compared to dual-camera setup on other two phones. Available for pre-order: Friday, October 19 with availability beginning Friday, October 26.

Instead, if you want to use your wired headphones with your new iPhone, you'll need to pony up another $9 to buy the dongle from Apple, even after spending at least $749 for your shiny new iPhone XR, $999 for the iPhone XS or $1099 for the iPhone XS Max - that is, for the base models. Apple also shared that the second wave of shipment will begin on September 28.

As before, the dual cameras include a wide-angle and a telephoto lens, with are both equipped with optical image stabilisation. The watch gets new 40mm and 44mm size.
