Apple could unveil biggest iPhone ever Wednesday

Apple could unveil biggest iPhone ever Wednesday

The new iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch screen size, while iPhone XS Max is 6.5 inch in size, in line with Wall Street expectations.

In one of the biggest tech events of the year, Apple Inc unveiled iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and Apple Watch Series 4.

At $749, the iPhone Xr is $250 cheaper than the iPhone Xs, and $350 cheaper than the iPhone Xs Max, both of which Apple also announced on Wednesday.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max feature a Super Retina display with custom-built OLED panels for an HDR display that provides the industry's best color accuracy, true blacks, and remarkable brightness. Made from 7000 series aerospace grade aluminium, it comes in white, black, blue, and coral yellow.

Pricing. Taking the price of its flagship iPhone to almost $1,000 previous year helped Apple squeeze more revenue out of the device even though unit sales remained flat.

The new iPhone XS Max will also feature the largest battery added to an Apple phone to date, and both new iPhone XS models will be capable of using two SIM cards and two phone numbers at once.

The camera system also boasts optical image stabilisation, a flood illuminator, an ambient light sensor and comes offering the wildly popular Portrait Mode.

Appearing at the Apple event, Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, called the heart-monitoring features "game changing", especially the ability to detect an irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation.

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10. According to the company, this feature will be available to people through new software updates in the coming time. Apple promises "wider stereo" on the Xs Max. Instead of the impressive IP68 dust and water resistance rating that the XS range has, the iPhone XR will only have IP67, which is an worldwide scale judging how water or dust resistant something is. Xs Max is offered at £1,099, £1,249 and £1,449 price that is PKR 175,000, 200,000 and 230,000 respectively.

Pre-orders for the iPhone Xr begins on October 19, with the phone hitting store shelves on October 26. From our experience, the iPhone 8 Plus can last longer than the iPhone X on a single charge, so the iPhone XR could be the best model for battery life. Rather than luring millions of new iPhone users, Apple's goal these days is to steadily raise average prices, while expanding the total number of active devices to support sales of accessories and digital services like iCloud storage, streaming music and video.

Read on to find out everything we know about the brand new iPhone XR.
