Is Bigger Better? The iPhone X will have exactly the same size body and 5.8-inch display as the iPhone X introduced previous year. And the fully tricked out iPhone XS Max costs $1,890 - a staggering $441 difference. Furthermore, the Xr model lacks 3D Touch, but instead, incorporates a "Haptic Touch", which Apple is marketing, as a long-press is accompanied with haptic feedback.

The camera hardware on the new phones is essentially the same as on the iPhone X: a 12-megapixel-wide angle and 12-megapixel telephoto lens on back with a 7-megapixel True Depth camera on front.

The Face ID in these models is said to work faster this time than last year's iPhone X. The XS Max also has a 458 pixels per inch Super Retina display measuring 6.5-inches, with a resolution of 2,688 x 1,242.

The diminutive iPhone SE, with its 4-inch screen, is dropping from the iPhone stable, as is the 4.7-inch-screen iPhone 6s. The iPhone Xs is at last official - alongside the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR, and despite all the secrecy and speculation, it's much as everyone expected it to be.

Why new MacBooks were a no-show at Apple's iPhone XS event
But the reaction so far isn't as heated as it was when Apple announced it was doing away with the headphone jack back in 2017. Both phones will be available in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold finishes and will come in 64GB, 128GB, 512GB storage options.

To hear the technology experts tell it, Apple's iPhone event on Wednesday was a snooze fest.

While there has not been any confirmation as of yet, the outlet reports that some leaked reports indicated that the new batch of iPhones will include one with 6.5-inch display.

As for the XR's screen, it's just as bright as the OLEDs, but its HD screen resolution is lower than the screens found on the XS and XS Max.

Apple also announced a new Apple Watch, which will move further into medical device territory. In general, LCDs don't match the inky black shadows in dark scenes that OLEDs can produce. The company makes elite products - and charges elite prices - and squeezes in just enough innovation to keep them elite.
