Even with all this power, Apple says the iPhone XS will last 30 minutes more, and the iPhone XS Max one and a half hours more, than the iPhone X between charges. The iPhone Xs Max is similar in size to the iPhone 8 Plus, but with a larger display.

While the iPhone X, XS and XS Max have pressure-sensitive 3D Touch screens that activate the flashlight or camera when you press down hard, the iPhone XR only has haptic feedback.

Folks here could be forking out as much as S$2,349 - the price of a decked out gaming computer - to get the best iteration of Apple's latest iPhone. The iPhone XS has the same 5.8in-sized component as the original, while iPhone XR's screen is 6.1in but is lower quality.

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.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled updated versions of its priciest iPhones along with a new smartwatch that allows users to take their own electrocardiograms, as the United States tech giant looks to boost its momentum in a sputtering market.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max (read, "ten S" and "ten S Max") carry on the all-screen design of iPhone X, and also continues down the route of "no home buttons".

The camera system also boasts optical image stabilisation, a flood illuminator, an ambient light sensor and comes offering the wildly popular Portrait Mode.

Building on the success of last year's iPhone X, Apple has refreshed the handset with the iPhone XS, which takes on the same physical form as its predecessor.

A12 Bionic, it is claimed, is 15% faster than A11 processor, 50% more efficient, and provides a 50% boost to graphics performance. The displays have a 60% greater dynamic range than the iPhone X, great for viewing the details of photos. It will feature a 6.1-inch LCD display with an "edge-to-edge" and "top-to-bottom" screen, thus limiting its bezel size. At the front on each, there's a 7-megapixel TrueDepth camera.

This opens to door to new features such as the Smart HDR found in the phones. Notably, to increase its appeal, Apple is making the iPhone XR available in six different colours: Red, Yellow, White, Coral, Black and Blue. 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.

The iPhone XR (along with the iPhone XS and XS Max) was announced today at Apple's September special event.

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.
