The premium iPhone XS is made with stainless surgical grade steel with a new glass formulation and has edge-to-edge screen, Apple said in a statement.

The iPhone Xs contains a 5.8-inch "Super Retina" OLED display while the Xs Max has a 6.5-inch version of the same display. It boasts the same set of features found in other iPhone X models. It can handle 5 trillion operations each second.

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

"Introducing dual SIMs in all markets is a bold move by Apple and something that will give mobile operators a lot to think about". Apple did improve the True Tone flash on the rear, and the front-facing camera can shoot images twice as quickly as before.

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

Another new feature on the Apple Watch will detect when a user has fallen, and the device will automatically generate an alert to initiate a call to emergency services.

Apple has unveiled the 5.8-inch OLED screen iPhone XS, which it says is "the most lovely phone" with a notch Apple has ever made.

So how's it work without a home button?

It's large, with a 6.1-inch display and familiar cutout at the top of the screen for FaceID recognition. Its physical size sits somewhere between an iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, only with a much larger screen.

Battery life is claimed to last up to an hour and half longer per day than the iPhone 8 Plus.

The iPhone XR starts at $749.

The iPhone XR will come in six colours: white, black, yellow, blue, coral and a special Product (Red) edition from the off.

The XR is coming a little later than the XS is, with a sale date of October 19 and an arrival date of October 26.

The wearable device will go on sale in the United Kingdom on September 21 but before that, Apple is releasing watchOS 5 for existing Apple Watch customers.

The iPhone XS and XS Max will be available to pre-order on Friday September 14, and ship Friday September 21 in the U.S. and other countries.

The tech blogger and well-known Apple watcher John Gruber also weighed in, noting that he could find a picture of an AirPower mat but no mention of the product by name on Apple's site. The Series 4 Watch is available with 40mm and 44mm cases versus the Series 3's 42mm and 38mm cases. The edges are noticeably rounder, though it still retains the square look.

The new iteration brings a number of upgrades, including UI tweaks and the option to apply the device's Breathe app to the watch face.

The dial on the side, called the digital crown, now has haptic feedback to feel vibrations.

Apple senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller talked about an addition Apple's portrait mode that now lets people adjust a photo's depth of field after it was taken.

The Apple-designed A12 Bionic, the smartest and most powerful chip in a smartphone, features the first 7-nanometer chip ever in a smartphone that delivers industry-leading performance in a more power-efficient design.
