The Apple Watch is inching toward becoming a medical device

Apple's new iPhone XS Max, the largest iPhone to date and one of the biggest in the market, has a 6.5-inch (16.5-cm) display. The other guidelines - internet use, video playback and so on - are all similarly better on the cheaper iPhone.

The iPhone XS Max will sell for $1,249 in 256GB and $1,099 in 64GB configurations.

"We want to reach as many customers as we can with this incredible technology", Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said Wednesday during an event at Apple's Cupertino, California, headquarters.

The Series 4 range will have an edge-to-edge screen like the new iPhones and is packing a bunch of features aimed at turning it into serious medical device.

The latest launches mark the upgrade-and-tweak phase of the iPhone cycle, having unveiled the more fundamentally redesigned X previous year. With the XR, which was until recently rumoured to be the XC, the physical home button on iPhones has now officially been consigned to history.

Apple did not improve the battery life of the new Apple Watch, and it still runs for 18 hours before needing to be recharged. XR comes in a bunch of bright, fun colors and although the screen is a big 6.1 inches, you can tell it doesn't go quite edge to edge as it does on the higher end Xs. Instead of using stainless steel like the iPhone X and XS, the XR uses 7000 series aluminium for its metal frame.

An iPhone XS Max with 512 GB of storage will be the most expensive iPhone ever.

Some of you might rightly be wondering: What about my not-so-huge hands?

The iPhone XR has essentially the same internals as the iPhone XS and XS Max-an A12 Bionic chipset with a six-core central processing unit, 4-core GPU, and 8-core neural engine. The XR's blue, red, and yellow are much more appealing than the XS's gold, which honestly looks pretty brown. Both the new iPhones will be succeeding the existing iPhone X. The part I didn't understand until I held one is that the phone's overall shape is actually very similar to last year's iPhone 8 Plus. Rusted-on Apple fanatics will always plump for the newest model. Samsung launched its Note line in 2011 with a 5.3-inch phone that seemed comical at the time.

Wall Street has embraced Apple's evolution from a consumer hardware company into a more-diversified technology giant with an installed base of 1.3 billion devices supporting a growing roster of digital services.

Apple's promised wireless charger was notably absent from its latest iPhone event.

Apple's 12-inch MacBook laptop starts at $1,299. It's got a similarly powerful battery that should carry most users through at least one day of use.

Like the XS and XS MAX, the XR has a new Depth Control slider feature that lets you adjust the depth-of-field in Portrait Mode photos after they're captured, going from maximum bokeh at f/1.8 to maximum depth-of-field at f/16. There are lots of tasks you can now do best with apps.
