Nichole VegaSep 15, 2018

The company also said the XS Max housed the biggest battery the company had ever placed into an iPhone, which would give users 90 minutes more battery life than last year's iPhone X.

Apple also pushed gaming on the new iPhones.

Alongside the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, the Cupertino giant, Apple has also launched the low-priced Apple iPhone XR, today, in Cupertino, California. Although the iPhone X didn't fulfil analysts' lofty sales expectations, it fared well enough for Apple to up the ante with the bigger model, whose price is expected to unveil Wednesday. Naturally, the jokes about buying an iPhone with a kidney were back and so were the jokes about its chargers.

Appearing at the Apple event, Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, called the heart-monitoring features "game changing", especially the ability to detect an irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation. With Bollywood memes and dash of desi humour, these relatable jokes have left everyone ROFL-ing.

The iPhone XR has debuted with a 6.1in screen and a brand new all-screen liquid retina display ("the most colour accurate in the industry") along with an all-new advanced single camera system.

The Apple iPhone XR is available in a plethora of colors - Black, Blue, Coral, White, Yellow, also, there's a Product Red variant of the iPhone XR as well.

The iPhone XR will be available for pre-order on October 19, with devices going on sale one week later on October 26. FaceID also makes a return with faster algorithms for detection and verification than before. Instead of the impressive IP68 dust and water resistance rating that the XS range has, the iPhone XR will only have IP67, which is an global scale judging how water or dust resistant something is.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available in India from September 28.

It follows previous rumours that the company will introduce a larger screened 6.5in iPhone - allegedly the XS Max - alongside the new 5.8in display iPhone XS, which is the same size screen as last year's iPhone X. It is allegedly depicting the 6.1-inch model, dubbed iPhone Xc or iPhone Xr. Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are the first iPhones to come with Dual-SIM and e-SIM support. Prices start at $399 for the cellular 40mm version - which will be carried by EE and Vodafone (the latter new for this edition). It comes equipped with a 12MP wide-angle camera with an all-new sensor and 1.4 million pixels (the same as in the iPhone XS and XS Max).

If you're using a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 or older, would you consider getting the iPhone XR? Storage options will be 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB.
