However, in order to keep a strong foothold in the premium segment and increase the accessibility, they have toned down the XS to shape it in the form of iPhone XR. The thicker, less flexible LCD display panel results in slightly larger bezels all around the XR than on the OLED iPhones. If you have been on an iPhone Plus you could go with the iPhone XS, which has with 5.8-inches a larger screen than the iPhone 8 Plus (5.5-inch), but why compromise?

They hit stores on September 21, 2018 with the iPhone XS priced at $999 (£999) and the XS Max a whopping $1,099 (£1,099).

'Apple's new phone's name is iphone XS which like every other iphone would be EXCESSively overpriced, ' @Bhavessshh tweeted.

The iPhone XR will be shipped with a standard charging adapter, a USB-to-Lightning cable and a pair of Earpods.

The latest iPhone models are just getting more expensive.

The iPhone Max XS is released for preorders on Friday, September 14 - you'll be able to get your hands on the mother of a mobile one week afterwards. Apple has done coloured phones before, with the iPhone 5c, but these colours are shimmery aluminium under glass, and they have a rich, enamel-like look to them.

Speaking of which, let's talk about the not-so-headline-grabbing iPhone XR.

iPhone XR comes in five colour options of white, black, blue, yellow and coral.

The home button is gone, but the screen acts much like the X's, with Face ID and swiping to go home.

Adding on the camera capabilities of the iPhone X with its 12-megapixel dual camera system, iPhone XS and XS Max introduce Smart HDR, which increases detail and dynamic range of photographs. I couldn't run benchmarks during my short time with the phone, but the A12's specs look absolutely fearsome, especially in the graphics and image-processing departments.

The iPhone XS Max is the biggest iPhone ever.

There's still some mystery around the XR's modem.

The XR supports Apple's unique dual-SIM solution, which uses one physical and one embedded SIM.

The major changes from previous models will be greater gearing toward internal upgrades rather than design changes, with all models improved with the fitting of the advanced A12 chip. The feature has been copied in many Android phones. The difference between the XR and the XS comes primarily in the screen, camera, and modem. You'll have to wait a bit longer for the iPhone XR, which launches on 26 October, with preorders from 19 October. However, the XR loses out on 3D Touch and relies on Taptic Feedback for launching the camera or the flashlight.
