IPhone XR: Apple unveils iPhone XR starting at £749

Much-anticipated Apple line-up will include a range of smartphones a new mini Mac and accessories. AFP

Apple updated its support page to include the three new iPhones it just launched - swapping out faulty iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr batteries will cost you $69 if you don't have AppleCare+.

The iPhone XS comes with a 5.8-inch display while iPhone XS Max comes with a 6.5-inch display. The displays on the watch are more than 30 percent larger with "minimal changes to the case size", he said. It will cost much less than the Xs and Xs Max, predicted to be around $600.

The display is roughly 30% larger than the Series 3. This looks like a direct replacement of the smaller iPhone 8. Apple promises "wider stereo" on the Xs Max. Finally, it incorporates the A12 Bionic chip as well as the same advanced AI-driven camera features as the Xs models. An improved TrueTone flash helps to light up subjects captured by the f/1.8 12MP wide-angle lens, and the f/2.4 12MP telephoto lens. There's also an f/2.2 7mp front camera. That computational power allows for neural learning in apps that assess your basketball shots, place your selfies inside movie scenes, let you play augmented reality versions of Galaga as well as the upcoming Elder Scrolls Blades from Todd "The Boy" Howard himself. Want a fully decked out iPhone XS Max?

As for the battery, Apple claims a stamina of 1.5 hours more than that of the iPhone 8 Plus.

And in the spirit of everything-but-the-kitchen sink, analysts tracking Apple's supply chain also say the company is also working on bringing facial-recognition technology to a new line of iPads and a lower-priced MacBook.

If you're using a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 or older, would you consider getting the iPhone XR?

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing said, "iPhone Xs is packed with next-generation technologies and is a huge step forward for the future of the smartphone".

The iPhone Xr comes in three storage configurations: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Pre-orders for the Apple Watch 4 begin on September 14, while shipping starts September 21.

Late a year ago Apple was hit with a massive iPhone slowdown scandal that seemed to confirm the conspiracy theory that Apple intentionally slows down older iPhone to force users to upgrade. Apple says the release is its attempt to reach as many people as possible, and it is perhaps the most populist of the bunch.

The iPhone XR, on the other hand, gets a 6.1-inch screen with Liquid Retina HD display.

Apple aficionados in the Middle East will not have long to wait before they get their hands on what the company are calling the "most lovely and advanced" iPhones.
