Apple Event Highlights: iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and Apple Watch 4

Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

Apple's special event is happening today, September 12, at 10a Pacific Time.

Initially spotted by ATH, the names of the iPhones are seen in the product sitemap XML file listed on the official website - Apple.com.New Apple iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xr Global Launch Today: Everything We Know So Far About 2018 Models.

For the most part, Apple has stuck to similar color schemes for its yearly iPhone releases.

Reporting by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, 9to5Mac and others throughout the past year suggests Apple will release an updated version of its latest iPhone X model, to be known as the iPhone Xs.

Here are the biggest announcements from the show - we'll be updating this story live as the news happens.

The UK price is expected to be in line with the dollar price as Apple has typically retailed its phones for the exact same amount in sterling as it has in dollars.

Apple has considered naming the new model the iPhone Xr, Bloomberg reported.




A low-priced version of iPhone X called the iPhone Xr, starting at $749, could supercharge unit shipments with a 6.1-inch, LCD screen, instead of newer OLED technology.

A third, lower cost model is also expected to be announced - with a 6.1-inch screen and the same A12 processor as the other iPhones, but lower storage options, less RAM, a single 12-megapixel camera, a lower resolution screen and a smaller battery.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max features updated cameras, which leverage not only the A12 Bionic chip but also the Neural Engine. Colour choices for the Apple Watch look to be limited to silver, space gray, and gold, however it seems there will be a few interesting new band options from Nike and Hermès along with a number of new colourful silicone iPhone cases (available in midnight blue, white, black stone, Product RED and various leathers) to help spruce up Apple's devices. Those using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with iOS 9.0 or later, can watch using Safari.

The AirPower charger was announced previous year with the promise of being able to wirelessly charge an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPod wireless headphones all at once.

The trend extends to the next-generation Apple Watch, called Series 4, with screens that are more than 30% larger.

It is positioning the new watch as a more comprehensive health device, able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers.
