Apple launches the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

The Liquid Retina display found in the iPhone XR boasts a resolution of 1792 x 828 and a pixel density of 328 ppi.

The company is leaving behind the great, albeit exhausted iPhone 6 design and moving to a lineup that completely adopts the iPhone X design with its edge-to-edge screen.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max (read, "ten S" and "ten S Max") carry on the all-screen design of iPhone X, and also continues down the route of "no home buttons".

This applies to all the iPhone that are part of the 2018 lineup, including the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. The cheaper iPhone XRs will be available to pre-order on Oct 19 and will be in stores starting Oct 26.

The device is powered by A12 Bionic SoC which has a hexa-core CPU, quad-core GPU, and a neural engine, and will deliver 15% faster application processing than last year's A11 chip. The iPhone 8 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen and it's bigger and wider. The three handsets were revealed at Apple's launch event held at Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park, and the iPhone XS price in India - along with those of the other two models - were revealed shortly after the event concluded. Rather than luring millions of new iPhone users, Apple's goal these days is to steadily raise average prices, while expanding the total number of active devices to support sales of accessories and digital services like iCloud storage, streaming music and video.

On Wednesday, the tech giant finally unveiled a set of three new iPhones that will surely delight Apple lovers everywhere.

"I am going to go out on a limb and say the XR is going to become Apple's top-selling iPhone", said analyst Patrick Moorhead of Moor Insights. With iOS 12, Apple promises benchmarking performance. The only potential hiccup to a record-breaking quarter is the fact that the iPhone XS won't launch until October. "The smartphone's base model starts at $749, and comes in six surprisingly vibrant colors - white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and the oddly-named "(PRODUCT) RED".

The new piece of kit is 50 percent more energy-efficient and faster than the previous processor, with apps loading 30 percent faster, too. The front camera is the same as the iPhone XS with a 7MP f/2.2 TrueDepth camera that also supports Portrait Mode and Animoji. The phone is water resistant, it has wireless charging, and no, it has no headphone jack.

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.
