iPhone XS: Apple to announce new phones at launch event - live updates

Apple has launched the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR, and the biggest ever iPhone, the iPhone XS Max, giving substance to earlier speculative reports.

The news was met with instant ridicule across social media, as Twitter users likened it to everything from energy drinks to commentary on its "excessive" cost.

Apple unveiled three new iPhones, including two with bigger displays, but perhaps the more dramatic announcement from Cupertino, Calif., on Wednesday was its new Apple Watch, with the new health-related tools. Xs Max is offered at £1,099, £1,249 and £1,449 price that is PKR 175,000, 200,000 and 230,000 respectively.

Kicking things off is the iPhone Xs - essentially the follow-up to the iPhone X. Made from surgical-grade stainless steel and featuring a new glass screen that's the most durable in any smartphone, the phone is available in gold, silver, space gray, and offers IP68 water resistance.

"I am going to go out on a limb and say the XR is going to become Apple's top-selling iPhone", said analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights.

Names for the new devices aren't known.

It comes as no surprise that Apple builds on last year's iPhone X to create an updated "S" version, as it does every alternate year.

The lira firmed to 6.01 against the dollar following the decision, from more than 6.4176 beforehand. The central bank surprised investors by not raising rates when it last met in July.

As we mentioned before, these events typically announce the newest iPhone. Another new addition is the Fall Detection feature.

The XS starts from £999. With a 6.5-inch screen, it's one of the biggest smartphone models on the market in any brand.

Speaking of battery backup, Apple World's Wide Marketing Senior Vice President Phil Schiller has said that the iPhone XS's backup is 30 minutes more than the iPhone X. While iPhone XS Max will back up more than 1 hour from the iPhone X.

Both are loaded with Apple's new A12 Bionic chip, which Apple claims runs run 15 per cent faster than the A11 chip in the iPhone X.

Also running on the A12 Bionic chip, iPhone XR is available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB, making for a pretty good, slightly more affordable option.

The new piece of kit is 50 percent more energy-efficient and faster than the previous processor, with apps loading 30 percent faster, too. The dual camera is of the 12-megapixel dual camera with dual optical image stabilization.

It arrives with a new selection of animated Watch faces and the digital crown has been redesigned. A quick look at the spec sheets on Apple's website confirms that the adapter is no longer listed among the accessories that come bundled in the box.
