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

iPhone Xs Max has a 3,300 mAh or 3,400 mAh battery which is huge. iPhone Xs will last 30 minutes more than previous iPhone and Xs Max will last one hour and 30 minutes more than the previous one. There are also a few new features, such as a watch faces to help you take a deep breath, or the ability to manage your calorie intake.

However, that's not all.

Reference to a new Apple Watch, and two new sizes of changeable Watch strap, also appeared in the listings, appearing to confirm rumours of a redesign to the wearable device. That computational power allows for neural learning in apps that assess your basketball shots, place your selfies inside movie scenes, let you play augmented reality versions of Galaga as well as the upcoming Elder Scrolls Blades from Todd "The Boy" Howard himself. On the top of the device is a notch which houses the front camera and the Face ID. And, the home button has been done away with on this model too.

Apple Watch's crown is also tweaked and now gives a haptic feedback along with the 50% louder speakers that can be used for phone calls, walkie-talkie, Siri and it has a noise cancellation microphone integrated to make the audio better. Made from 7000 series aerospace grade aluminium, it comes in white, black, blue, and coral yellow. There will also be three versions available for the smartphone: a 64GB model, a 128GB model, and a 256GB model. This one will cost nearly $1,100, topping last year's iPhone X, which at $1,000 seemed jaw-dropping at the time. Pre-orders for the Apple Watch 4 begin on September 14, while shipping starts September 21. They will start selling on September 21st but the India launch isn't clear.

More importantly, Apple kicked off a one-year iPhone battery replacement program that reduced the fix fee from $79 to $29. Pre-orders begin on October 19, and the phone will ship on October 26.

Keegan Bradley wins BMW Championship
At the 425-yard par-4 11th, Cantlay got on in 2 and missed his par putt from 5 feet, finishing with a 3-putt bogey. The competition was won by American Keegan Bradley who bested England's Justin Rose in a playoff.

Apple is calling it a Liquid Retina HD display and they say it's the most advanced LCD in the industry.

The handsets are now IP68 rated, meaning they are water resistant in up to 2 meters of water for 30 minutes and can fend off everyday spills. Each phone gets two 12-megapixel cameras, one a wide-angle and the other a telephoto lens, with a variety of modes and effects.

The iPhone XR will feature an aluminium frame, a 6.1-inch LCD screen, just one rear 12-megapixel camera, facial recognition, and the company's new A12 chip.

Apart from its screen specifications, the iPhone XR also uses the new A12 Bionic processor that the XS and XS Max also use, which boasts more cores and faster speeds than previous models.
