The iPhone Xs Max is a higher-end version with a 6.5-inch OLED screen, making it one of the biggest on the market - and one of the most-expensive at $1 099 and up.

The iPhone XS and its bigger sibling, the XS Max, have been launched as successors to the iPhone X. Both phones, though distinct in sizes, sport similar "Super Retina" custom OLED displays, have dual rear camera setups, and the A12 Bionic processor comes as standard on each.

In other ways, the iPhone Xr matches the high-end Xs range: It has the same front-facing camera with FaceID, and uses the same A12 Bionic chip, which is faster and more power-efficient than last year's A11. It is allegedly depicting the 6.1-inch model, dubbed iPhone Xc or iPhone Xr.

The XR features numerous same specifications as the XS duo but has only a single rear camera, an LCD screen - unlike the XS' OLED - and starts at £749 when it goes on sale in October.

The Apple iPhone XR is available in a plethora of colors - Black, Blue, Coral, White, Yellow, also, there's a Product Red variant of the iPhone XR as well.

The leak, discovered in new product page listings of the Apple.com sitemap by the site All Things How, appears to confirm the three new phones will be called the iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR.

The XS will start at £999, the same as last year's iPhone X.

Both iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be have iOS 12 operating system which is the most advanced in the world at present. iOS 12 will allow iPhone users to have more options with Animoji and Memoji. "We expect the iPhone XS Max to have exactly the same effect despite its price tag". The company calls their technology DSDS (dual-sim dual-standby).

The company is also expected to unveil a new version of its wireless AirPods earbuds with wireless charging and a wireless mat that will be able to charge several devices at once. Folks here could be forking out as much as S$2,349 - the price of a decked out gaming computer - to get the best iteration of Apple's latest iPhone.

A third new iPhone XR has also been unveiled. Come launch, you'll be expected to fork over at least £1,099 for one and if you wanted the top-end configuration with 512GB of storage, be prepared to shed a hefty £1,449. The sensor is the same found on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max.

Like the previous Apple Watch, battery life is claimed to be 18 hours, but a charge should last longer for workouts and running than before: 6 hours with Global Positioning System.

The iPhone Xr starts at $749 and will be available for purchase on Friday, Sept. 14.
