The iPhone Xr sports a bigger display compared to the iPhone 8 Plus, and unlike the iPhone Xs and Xs Max's OLED displays, it features a different setup which Apple calls, "Liquid Retina" boasting the most color accuracy in the industry, with wide color support and True Tone for a more natural viewing experience.

Apple removed the iPhone SE and iPhone 6S-along with last year's iPhone X-from its website after its launch event in Cupertino, California, on Wednesday, seemingly discontinuing the last Apple phones with built-in 3.5mm headphone jacks from its lineup.

'These phones really look wonderful, but "iPhone XS Max" is the worst product name Apple has come up with in this century, ' Twitter user @gilbert said. At least one analyst also expects the device to provide an electrocardiogram, or ECG, though, that would likely require Food and Drug Administration approval, and Apple hadn't secured that as of Tuesday.

Both come with a dual camera behind them - 12 megapixel and telephoto lens - and a 7-megapixel camera in front.

The iPhone XS Max starts at $1.099, and will also be available for pre-order on September 14.

The biggest news for most smartphone users was the announcement of the new phone's dual-Sim capability, meaning users will have access to two phone numbers on the same iPhone at the same time.

The iPhone Xs looks very similar to last year's iPhone X, and features a 5.8 inch edge-to-edge OLED screen with a resolution of 2436 by 1125 pixels. What's inside the iPhone XS Max It's not just the screen where Apple has gone big. The display consists of a total of 2.7 million pixels, features a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch, and has a notch cut-out for the front-facing camera.

Amazon's Bezos comments on Trump criticism
Amazon has come under heavy criticism for how workers are treated at its distribution centres and its tax contributions. He said he did not know how much money he would eventually give away.

When Trump added an extra zero in his GDP tweet
The economy grew at a 4.2% rate in the second quarter, the fastest since the third quarter of 2014 - again, under Mr Obama . That's not the case for the S&P 500 Index, which has increased about 35% since Trump was elected on November 8, 2016.

Obama's Speech That Broke Tradition, Criticized Trump 'Very Disappointing,' Pence Says
In that respect, the former president is attempting during the Trump era what he could not do when he was in the White House. Next week, Obama plans to campaign in Ohio for Richard Cordray, the Democratic nominee for governor, and Ohio Democrats.

Storage isn't as generous as that offered on the more expensive devices, with just 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB options.

While much of the hype was predictably around the three new iPhone models, the Series Four watch was treated to some major upgrades that did not go unnoticed.

The company announced that it will start shipping the gadgets at the end of September with XR expected to be shipped in mid-October. Thanks to its neural engine and ISP that's identical to the iPhone XS, the performance is still excellentl.

Apple's iPhone XR is a more intriguing smartphone than the two premium iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices. As a point of comparison, the regular Xs costs £999 (the same price as last year's iPhone X) and the iPhone XR will start at £749.

According to the company, Apple Watch Series 4 can detect falls and it will call emergency contacts if it doesn't detect movement after a minute. The design also confirms what we saw a couple of weeks ago, with a slightly redesigned rotating crown and side button, as well as a new microphone placement.

Highly anticipated: Apple's flagship devices might be getting more expensive every year, but the company hasn't given up on those with limited budgets.
