It wasn't mentioned in Apple's presentation but the Apple store listings confirm the free accessories bundled with the new iPhones - and there's no sign of the 3.5mm to Lightning headphone adapter. The company also plans to announce an updated version of its 5.8-inch OLED device with a faster processor for improved performance.

Apple is preparing to unveil their new iPhone at a big tech event, and the public can see the big reveal by streaming it online.

Here's what you need to know about the iPhone XR. However, there are design tweaks.

It's pronounced "iPhone 10 ess". There also improvements to the speakers, you'll now get much better sound, too.

Both are available in Space Gray, silver, and gold in 64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB capacities.

Last year Apple softened the blow by keeping the home button on the more traditional iPhone 8.

The iPhone XS also now features dual SIM support, meaning you'll be able to have two numbers on a single device. But for the first time, Apple has made an LCD display that covers the entire front of the device, and Apple calls it the Liquid Retina display. In the U.S., all the major carriers will be supporting the feature, while in the United Kingdom, it's Vodafone and EE. Phil Schiller, the company's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, described A12 Bionic as "the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone".

The new models sport an A12 Bionic processor with a 7nm process. The phone promises 90 more minutes of battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus.




The Apple September keynote focused on buzz words like "neural engines" and multi-core processing with GPUs and CPUs.

'The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminum and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six attractive finishes.

Apple said its new 12-megapixel dual camera system brings more detail to iPhone photos and allows users to take "more sophisticated portraits".

The newest version of iOS will be available on existing iPhone and iPad devices on September 17th. The app uses the phone's video camera to track each shot and record "makes" and "misses". It still does the bokeh effect, but with the help of software.

With the added feature, photographers can change how crisply a photo's background is displayed, so that they can better emphasize the picture's subject. The Apple Watch heart monitor will now do long-term cardiac monitoring, warning when your heart beats irregularly. The iPhone Xs Max is the Supersized Big Mac and fries phone for an era of healthier digital diets.

The "budget" answer to Apple's top-of-the-range iPhone XS and XS Max, the iPhone XR - will start at a cool $749 (£749), and comes in three different storage sizes: 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

We look forward to lab testing out all of the new screens when we get retail models of the phones later this month.

The iPhone Xr fits between the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max size-wise, but comes with a lower price tag.
