A tricked-out iPhone XS Max costs more than a MacBook

How to watch Apple's 2018 iPhone keynote announcement - Stream, schedule, info Meet the new iPhones: Here’s all the smartphone news Apple announced today

Here's the biggest news from Apple's big day. Last year's iPhone X - pronounced "ten" - represented a major redesign. It's large, with a 6.1-inch display and familiar cutout at the top of the screen for FaceID recognition.

The phone specs were leaked hours prior to the event, but Apple managed to gin up some extra interest with a deleted Tweet by CEO Tim Cook that read "No".

Today alongside the new iPhone XS, XS Max and the XR, Apple first introduced the new Apple Watch Series 4.

The way that Apple's much-vaunted processing power, AI and "neural networks" get used by developers may be what determines if this goes down as a classic or an also-ran in the iPhone pantheon.

Before Apple's official unveiling of the iPhone X a year ago, many analysts expected its anticipated revamped design to spark a massive upgrade cycle.

The devices don't have a home button and feature Face ID in lieu of a Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

The deputy's body camera video shows the deputy repeatedly ordered the man to drop his weapon before the man shot himself. More than 30 people were reportedly interviewed during the initial investigation, and five search warrants were served.

The iPhone XS Max will sell for $1,249 in 256GB and $1,099 in 64GB configurations.

Only certain Apple Watch models support cellular calls, but those that don't can still make emergency calls when near a paired iPhone or Wi-Fi service. Or rather, the iPhone XS is clearly the flagship model, but the iPhone XR, launching a week later, has some features which are better than its sibling.

Some of you might rightly be wondering: What about my not-so-huge hands?

The Apple Watch Series 4 with Global Positioning System starts at £399 while the version with Global Positioning System and cellular starts at £499.

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.

However, with "decent improvements in the mix"- he highlighted the phone's louder speakers and more colourful screen - there's no doubt the iPhone XS looks like a great phone. While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display.

The new iPhone XS' release date is set for September 21, with pre-orders opening on September 14 for most countries around the world.

The Apple Watch heart monitor will now do long-term cardiac monitoring, warning when your heart beats irregularly. Samsung launched its Note line in 2011 with a 5.3-inch phone that seemed comical at the time.

Since the Apple Watch launched in April 2015, most people haven't figured that they need one. What this allows Apple to do is to collect a lot more data at higher accuracy and try to determine the scenario that you're in. As you can see, however, this deal is only good for a limited time, and only applies to iPhone XS models. The phone, which costs more than a basic Apple laptop ($1449 in its maxed-out Max configuration), is in many ways becoming a replacement for a laptop - minus the keyboard. Plenty of professionals will be able to get most of their (digital) work done on this device. Let's take a closer look.

At one point during Apple's keynote, three people demonstrating an augmented-reality game faced off while consumed by their giant screens, the flawless image for our binge smartphone times.
