Dual SIM support - which lets a phone use two phone numbers and carrier plans at the same time - will be coming to the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR.

And, Schiller said, the XS line-up features 'the most lovely iPhone we've ever made'.

As well, buyers get up to one-and-a-half hours of additional runtime per charge versus the iPhone 8 Plus, according to Apple, offering overall better battery life.

The new Series 4 Apple Watch has several unusual new features in addition to the anticipated larger screen, including a heart rate monitor capable of taking an electrocardiogram (ECG) and another that detects falls. The iPhone XR, the most low-ranking member of Apple's expanding X family of devices, is exactly what the company needs to revive its sluggish smartphone sales. To reach customers not willing to pay that much, Apple will have the iPhone XR.

It's all nice and shiny, but here's the kicker - the iPhone XS Max only starts at S$1,799, and that's just for the something with a measly 64gb capacity. But now we've also got the iPhone XS Max, which sounds like nothing less than a Championship Edition fighting game re-release.

Called iPhone XS, it is made of surgical steel.

Apple's desire to "kill" the headphone jack has been clear since it first removed the port from the iPhone 7 in 2016.

You can start pre-ordering the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max on September 14, this Friday.

If the "Portrait Mode" impressed you before, it now allows you to shoot with "professional-level bokeh", and adjust the depth of field of your photographs both during and after image capture.

The new piece of kit is 50 percent more energy-efficient and faster than the previous processor, with apps loading 30 percent faster, too.

Moving to the camera, both the iPhones will have two 12-MP cameras one of which will be a telephoto lens and the other will be a wide-angle lens.

The new £1,099 iPhone XS Max houses a 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED display, the largest ever placed on an iPhone, and is joined by the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, the same size as last year's iPhone X.

While it appears that Apple is cutting corners with the display, the iPhone XR is packing similar top notch hardware as the iPhone XS. Last year, the name of the iPhone X leaked a full week before the keynote.

Coupled with that is a new gyroscopic sensor that not only makes fitness tracking more accurate but now enables a new safety feature called fall detection. In India, the iPhone XR will be available slightly late on October 26.

And sure, you can use the company's AirPods, which Apple will, of course, happily sell you for $159.
