Apple unveiled a suite of new iPhones overnight from the Steve Jobs Auditorium in California, a long-awaited moment for consumers and investors alike.
The flagship model, the iPhone XS, will cost $1,300 (AUD). Another, larger model, the XS Max, will cost $1,799.
Apple will also unveil a “budget” phone – the ‘XR’ for $1,100.
Faster FaceID, better speakers, water-resistance, and improved display
The iPhone Xs — which is 5.8 inches long, the same size as the iPhone X — is similar to the current iPhone X model in other ways, too. However, it boasts upgrades like a faster processor, upgraded camera, and a more dynamic display. The phone will come in a new colour, gold, to accompany silver and space gray.
A larger version, the iPhone Xs Max, was also introduced, the biggest iPhone ever with a massive 6.5-inch screen.
Apple VP Phil Schiller, who presented at the event, said the new flagship iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are more splash and water-resistant and can withstand up to six and a half feet of water for 30 minutes.
The new phones feature faster FaceID, better speakers, and an improved display. The iPhone Xs-series camera has an improved camera with a new, larger sensor and bigger pixels with a faster processor to enable users to change the depth-of-field of a photo after you take it.
The iPhone Xs battery life adds 30 minutes to the X and the Xs Max adds 90 minutes.
