Apple introduces iPhone XR

It's the biggest iPhone ever, with a whopping 6.5 inch display (up from the 5.8 inch screen on the XS model). Both new phones cram the same number of pixels into each inch as the display on the original iPhone X.

Sensors. The coolest reveals of the day featured, for me, Apple's least interesting product.

This applies to all the iPhone that are part of the 2018 lineup, including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. That's right, the next generation of iPhones all feature edge-to-edge screens without the familiar circle at the bottom to guide you back to the home screen.

Battery life is very important to many consumers, and we'll be testing the new phones once they arrive in the lab.

The new Apple watches, with the help of an optical sensor, can notify a person if their heart rate is too low and can monitor people's heart rhythms in the background. The iPhone Xs screen measures 5.8-inches, just like the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display. The iPhone Xr, a cheaper version also announced on Wednesday, has a starting price of $749.

'IPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology, in lovely new designs, at a more affordable price'.

Some of you might rightly be wondering: What about my not-so-huge hands? The iPhone Xs and Xs Max double that, with a 512GB model for those who want to pay a few hundred dollars extra.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 device has a 35% bigger display screen than its predecessor and comes in two different sizes: 40mm or 44mm.

Apple didn't invent this big phone fashion. Both phones have "Super Retina" displays with the highest pixel density of any iOS devices. With the introduction of iPhones ditching the Apple-made feature of 3D Touch, it could spell the death of one of Apple's most promising features, even if no one really uses it.

The XR is only a single lens camera system, but has a wide angle like those found on iPhone X.

As a result, many have pointed out that it sounds much like "excess" and 'excess Max'. Plenty of professionals will be able to get most of their (digital) work done on this device.

It's the ideal tool for taking bigger selfies, for pawing at bigger Instagram pictures, for streaming even more Netflix.

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.

Good luck ever putting it down.

Customers will be able to pre-order iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max beginning Friday, September 14, with availability beginning Friday, September 21.
