The iPhone XS Max fits into the same footprint as the iPhone 8 Plus.

On Wednesday, the tech giant finally unveiled a set of three new iPhones that will surely delight Apple lovers everywhere.

You'll be able to preorder the iPhone XS and XS Max here.

And for all you travel photographers out there, Apple also updated the camera on the phone to come with a wider aperture for its telephoto lens and larger pixel definition.

Although it didn't sell quite as analysts anticipated, the iPhone X still emerged as the most popular in Apple's line-up, according to Cook. The A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine uses real-time machine learning to transform the way you experience photos, gaming, augmented reality, and more.

The new GPU is much better at handling AR and has been tailored made for ARKit 2 meaning everything from games to animoji is going to look better and run more smoothly!

Despite the discounted option, Telsyte managing director Foad Fadaghi said Australian Apple fans were likely to accept the top iPhone XS Max's significantly higher cost this year, but warned that prices could not keep rising at their current rate.

Apple's annual September press conference kicked off on Wednesday at the Steve Jobs Theater on its circular Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.

When will it be available?

Available for pre-order: Friday, September 14 with availability beginning Friday, September 21. The prices are relatively lesser than iPhone XS and iPhone XS which are available at starting price of Rs 99,900 and Rs 1,09,900.

Got $1,100? Apple shows off its most expensive iPhone yet
The iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in white, black, blue, yellow , coral and (PRODUCT) RED for $749. There are some new tools to monitor how much time you spend looking at your phone and some tweaks to how notifications display.

The microphone and speaker were both improved to enable better calling from your wrists, and watchOS 5's new "raise to Siri" feature, which allows you to skip saying "Hey Siri", means I'm using the digital assistant more than ever.

New Depth Control allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture to create striking portraits with a attractive bokeh effect.

If we refer to Apple Singapore's pricing, the iPhone XS is priced from RM4,974 for the base model with 64GB and it goes up to RM7,086 for the 512GB version of the iPhone XS Max.

It wasn't mentioned in Apple's presentation but the Apple store listings confirm the free accessories bundled with the new iPhones - and there's no sign of the 3.5mm to Lightning headphone adapter.

The XR's most compelling feature, though, is likely to be its price.

Apple will reveal an iPhone model known as the XR, which is a rare "budget" offering by Apple.

With a 6.5-inch screen, it's set to be one of the largest smartphones on the market.

Apple is calling it a Liquid Retina HD display and they say it's the most advanced LCD in the industry. It features the same design, but with a lower-resolution screen and one rear camera, instead of the dual camera designs of more expensive iPhones.

If that claim is accurate, it'll be interesting to see it in action; Face ID in the iPhone X is fast, but there's still room for improvement.
