The XR uses the LCD screens of Apple's past, and lacks the pressure-sensing 3D Touch feature that debuted on the iPhone 6S. The new Apple Watch claims to be able to tell the difference between a trip and a fall - and when the latter occurs, it will suggest calling 911 (or the equivalent outside the U.S.).

The Max is the Xs' bigger brother. It boasts the same set of features found in other iPhone X models.

The biggest news for most smartphone users was the announcement of the new phone's dual-Sim capability, meaning users will have access to two phone numbers on the same iPhone at the same time.

The camera features have at least one 12-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera that supports Face ID unlocking and Animojis, while the XR lacks a second rear camera and uses a software to take artistic portrait-style shots with background blur (called Bokeh). The prices for the iPhone Xs Max are a little higher, at £1,099/$1,099, £1,249/$1,249 or £1,449/$1,449.

We run down all the most important updates and features on this episode of Geared Up - plus, do some complaining about all the things we wanted to see that Apple didn't announce.

Tech columnist Geoffrey A. Fowler tries out the $1099 iPhone Xs Max, with a 6.5-inch screen -the largest Apple has ever sold. With the XR, which was until recently rumoured to be the XC, the physical home button on iPhones has now officially been consigned to history. Even with all this power, iPhone XR lasts up to an hour and a half longer than iPhone 8 Plus. For example, the iPhone XR costs £749, £799 or £899 in the United Kingdom, depending on the capacity.

The iPhone Xs starts at $999 and will be available for pre-order on September 14. The watches can be pre-ordered from 14 September with cellular connectivity, starting at $499, or just Global Positioning System, starting at $399. Color and other features are otherwise the same as those available with the iPhone Xs, safe for one key detail: Apple promised that the iPhone Xs Max will come with up to 90 minutes of additional battery life when compared to the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs will only offer up to 30 minutes of additional battery life.

But the arrival of the iPhone Xs and Xr phones reminds us that the deal will soon expire, and prices will go up after December 31st.

Apple didn't invent this big phone fashion.

The Watch Series 4 has larger display sizes (40mm or 44mm) than the Series 3 (38mm or 42mm) without increasing the actual Watch size thanks to the trimming of the bezels. The edges are noticeably rounder, though it still retains the square look.

This new features will be available to USA customers later this year, Apple said - an indication that it may not be ready for launch. The crown has been improved and now gives haptic feedback, trying to mimick the "clicking wheel" feel such as in more mechanical dials, or more aptly, the clicking of a mouse wheel when you scroll with it.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will let users take an electrocardiogram, or ECG, and share it with their doctor.

The strategy appears to be working, as Apple topped sales expectations in its most recent fiscal quarter, despite selling fewer iPhones than Wall Street expected.

The Watch 4 is available from $279 in either silver, gold, or space grey, or you can opt for the more expensive stainless finish which brings polished, space black or gold varieties.
