Apple aficionados in the Middle East will not have long to wait before they get their hands on what the company are calling the "most lovely and advanced" iPhones.

The device brings a design overhaul to the Apple Watch as the iPhone-maker is now using a new dual-core 64-bit chipset, custom created to improve performance.

Meanwhile, MacOS Mojave, which will launch Monday September 24, features dark mode, a tool to clean up your messy desktop, and some classic iOS apps including News, Voice Memos, Stocks and Home.

Both feature an upgraded version of the iPhone X's dual lens camera - one of the device's best features - which allows for better portraits and higher-quality videos even in low light. Both have OLED displays and an "all new" camera system. The device kills the 3D touch feature but added some haptic feedback, so the screen vibrates a bit in response to touch. Google is expected to unveil the third generation of its Pixel smartphone on October 9.

So, when can you get your shakingly impatient hands on Apple's latest trio of phones?

Battery life is claimed to last up to an hour and half longer per day than the iPhone 8 Plus. They come in a flashy gold color in addition to space gray and silver.

The XR is this year's budget version of the iPhone. Consistent user-hostile behavior on Apple's part does little to earn it any goodwill, and makes me wonder when the headphone jack on the rest of Apple's devices will get the axe. That means if you haven't already embraced wireless headphones, now's the time. Williams said the new Apple Watch could help detect atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat), although he hedged that it won't "catch every instance".

The new series has been approved by FDA for ECG recording as well but this feature would be limited to only US-based users initially. Customers will see a benefit, with storage of up to 512GB on the new iPhones as well as an enhanced machine learning engine. One large one is the ability to detect falls and call emergency services on your behalf if you're unresponsive.

The phones are updates to last year's iPhone X (10), which was released to mark the 10th anniversary of the smartphone.
