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.

While you can't see it per se, Apple upgraded the phones' durability over their predecessors with an IP68 water resistance rating.

The phones are updates to last year's iPhone X (10), which was released to mark the 10th anniversary of the smartphone.

Sam's Club is throwing in a $100 gift card to members who purchase and activate an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max from September 21st through September 23rd with either AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon.

The company, in a bid to bolster its spot in the premium smartphone market, also unveiled an upgraded smartwatch that takes electrocardiograms and detects falls.

Thanks to the larger display, there's a new watch face that features up to eight complications that can be customized.

Three new iPhones are heading our way: the XS, XS Max, and the XR.

Apple appears to have leaked the names of its new iPhone line-up on its website just hours before its live event to launch the products.

The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display , A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup. Verizon is also offering $100 off any iPad with a device payment plan or $50 off an Apple Watch on a device payment plan.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are going to be available unlocked from Apple, which means you won't have to tie yourself to any carrier when preordering the phone. IPhones fetched an average price of $724 during the April-June period, a almost 20 per cent increase from a year earlier. On top of that, an eight-core neural engine acts as a dedicated machine learning support system for the phone. Highlights of the new timepiece are its significantly larger screen options, twice-as-fast processor, new sensors, and watchOS 5. "I'll have to sell off both", joked one user on the platform.

Preorders for the XS start at $1629, and the XS Max starts at $1799.

The third model, called the Xr, is Apple's biggest hardware bet of 2018.

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 biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red.

Using the direct price conversion, the iPhone XR pricing is quite similar to the iPhone 8 at the time of launch. From our experience, the iPhone 8 Plus can last longer than the iPhone X on a single charge, so the iPhone XR could be the best model for battery life.

The Bluetooth/GPS model will start at $399, while the version with cellular connectivity will run you $499.

You can pre-order the iPhone Xr beginning October 19 and it will ship on October 26.
