Apple made some big announcements today, including new iPhones! Here's everything you need to know about what the company revealed.
iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
As expected, Apple announced the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, updates to last year's popular iPhone X. The phones both feature edge-to-edge displays, with the iPhone XS coming in at the now-familiar 5.8 inches, while the iPhone XS Max's display is 6.5 inches. They're powered by the new Apple A12 Bionic system-on-a-chip.
The iPhone XR is Apple's next evolution of its mainstream iPhone. Like the iPhone X and iPhone XS, the iPhone XR features a full-screen display taking up the entire front side of the device. That screen measures 6.1 inches and unlike the higher-end models, it's an LCD panel rather than OLED. The iPhone XR also features a body made from 7000 Series aluminum. It has a single camera on the back, and will be available in six colors at launch.
Apple Watch Series 4
The Apple Watch Series 4 made its debut on stage today. The displays on both sizes of watch are more than 30% larger, with displays that go nearly edge-to-edge. There are also a plethora of new complications and a brand new S4 computer-on-a-chip with increased performance over the S3. And thanks to new electrodes on the Series 4, you can take an electrocardiogram directly on your watch.
Apple Watch Series 4 pre-orders begin on September 14, with in-store availablity coming on September 21.
