By Brendyn Lotz

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max may be the most premium iPhones to come out of Apple's Special Event, but the real showstopper might be the more affordable iPhone XR.

The iPhone XS Max comes packed with a huge 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED display, running at an impressive 2688x1242 resolution.

I hope that you're wide-eyed, bushy-tailed, and thoroughly caffeinated, because pre-orders for Apple's new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4 are about to go live.

The Home Button Is Dead With the launch of the "cheap" iPhone Xr Apple has officially done away with the TouchID and the Home button. This is the best iPhone Xs deal if you are Sprint fan.

The iPhone XR will also be available in a variety of finishes - white, black, blue, coral, yellow, and (Product) Red - and 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB capacities, starting at $749.

That sounds pretty cool, especially when you can get $400 back on your iPhone XS order by signing up and maintaining a US Mobile service line for 12 months.

Meet the iPhone Xs.

One of the most distinct difference are the available color options, with six colorways for the iPhone XR and just three standard color variants for the iPhone XS, but the two most significant differences between these two iPhones are the display and and body frame (or chassis). While we can understand the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s discontinuation, the iPhone X seems to be due to the new models since they have nearly the same design and come in the similar price range, making older versions redundant. While the based models of iPhone XS and XS Max starts at a whopping $999 and $1,099 price tags, respectively.

Beyond the iPhone, the new Apple Watch Series 4 appears to be resonating with consumers in a big way. The infamous notch can be seen at the top, housing the entire TrueDepth camera array which makes face unlocking, Animoji/Memoji, and Portrait mode selfies possible.

This week Apple unveiled iPhone Xs iPhone Xs and Max, who have received advanced technical equipment and capabilities, but also very high price tags. This means the device uses a dedicated processor for gaming and graphics, while the remaining functions are handled by the CPU, improving overall performance. They're also more customisable so you can do things like track your flights, tap on the faces of your loved ones to contact them, etc. Now, AnTuTu has shared a new screenshot which reveals that the Apple A12 powered iPhone XS handset has recorded a marvelous score of more 363k. It also now comes with an alignment tray, so iPhone owners can be assured of a flawless, seamless screen protector application on their phones. The Apple Watch Series 4 will be available in silver, gold and space grey.

And you can expect to pay at least £1,049 for the largest iPhone of them all, the XS Max.
