Apple unveils updated Watch and priciest iPhone ever at latest launch

The gold space gray and silver finishes on iPhone Xs

This means that the new-generation iPhones aren't exactly new designs, but come with updated features instead. From a hardware perspective, the XR has pretty much the same tech as the Xs and Xs Max. It will feature a 6.1-inch LCD display with an "edge-to-edge" and "top-to-bottom" screen, thus limiting its bezel size.

Apple's special media event is now in the books and, per usual, there's a whole lot to pore over. As a primary camera, it has a 12 megapixel wide angle lens.

The popular portrait mode, which de-focuses the background of a photo to emphasize the subject, has a new setting.

These upgrades apply to the front camera too, so your selfies can look like they were taken by a professional photographer. The phones will be available for pre-order and shipped this month.

The biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red.

The iPhone home button is officially dead.

Highly anticipated: Apple's flagship devices might be getting more expensive every year, but the company hasn't given up on those with limited budgets.

Topol noted that a similar product - AliveCor's Kardiaband, a band for the Apple Watch - offers EKGs and received FDA clearance previous year.

Apple will continue to sell the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 in regular and Plus sizes.

Nawaz Sharif’s wife Kulsoom Nawaz passes away in London
Politicians from various political parties and high-level government officials also expressed deep grief over the death. Begum Kulsoom served as first lady of Pakistan for three non-consecutive terms from 1990-1993, 1997-1999 and 2013-2017.

Customers will be able to pre-order the new iPhone series from Friday, 14 September, and purchase in stores from 21 September.

Three new smartphones have been launched during the Apple event - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

To begin with, Apple Watch 4 now sports a 30 percent larger screen with much smaller bezels. You don't feel any unnecessary vibrations with alerts coming in and that's due to the haptic feedback on the Watch 4.

Probably their biggest hit so far is "Say My Name", featuring Zya, which charted at Number 16 on the US Dance chart. The latest wearable also touts a built-in (and FDA-approved) EKG sensor to help diagnose heart diseases and other conditions.

The world's first trillion-dollar company is seeking to widen its product's appeal amid slowing sales.

The iPhone XS will come in three different storage options (listed below) and pricing starts at $999.

Apple also highlighted its recycling program called GiveBack. Here are highlights of some of those metrics from the event, which was held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California.

The iPhone XS Max has a starting price of $1,099 (for the 64GB variant); it is priced at $1,249 for the 256GB variant and $1,449 for the 512GB variant.

Up to 8 complications fit on one of Apple's new Watch faces.
