  • How to watch Apple's 2018 iPhone keynote announcement - Stream, schedule, info

While the big reveal was Apple's largest phone yet, the 6.5 inch iPhone Xs Max, I was more impressed by the silicon that drives it.

The iPhone XR starts at $749 United States dollars, which we anticipate translating as £749 and will be available to order from 19 October.

CEO Tim Cook showed off the iPhone XS Max, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,100, topping the iPhone X, which at $1,000 seemed jaw-dropping at the time.

It will be available to order from 19 October, and will start shipping on 26 October.

But it does have the same A12 Bionic that the top-level iPhone XS has as well as iOS 12 installed, so it should be pretty nippy.

As for the battery, Apple claims a stamina of 1.5 hours more than that of the iPhone 8 Plus.

T3 will shortly be going hands on with the iPhone Xr, so make sure to check back in to T3.com soon for the complete picture.

Apple's new products aside, it's worth noting that Apple today seemingly axed a number of existing iPhones from its product lineup. All of this unlocks new experiences for games, photography, video editing and graphics-intensive apps while still offering great battery life. The Xr also has also has a single-lens rear camera instead of dual lenses, so it can't do optical zoom, though it still offers the depth control and portrait mode features of its pricier siblings.

And, Schiller said, the XS line-up features 'the most handsome iPhone we've ever made'.

Apple also touted the iPhone's durability, saying the front and back glass design is tougher than any other smartphone and is more resistant to scratches.

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

The iPhone Xr fits between the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max size-wise, but comes with a lower price tag.

No home button. Got it.

The iPhone Xr is also splash and water resistant, with a rating of IP67, and will also come in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and the exclusive (PRODUCT) RED edition, which helps raise awareness and inspire action to fight HIV/AIDS. With the introduction of iPhones ditching the Apple-made feature of 3D Touch, it could spell the death of one of Apple's most promising features, even if no one really uses it.

Faster Processor. All three phones will feature Apple's A12 Bionic chip, which the company promises will speed up operations while also reducing power consumption. It features Smart HDR, which automatically makes improvements to photos using machine learning.

CarPlay, the iPhone integration with certain vehicle infotainment systems, will support Google Maps and Waze.

Will those people stubbornly holding on to an iPhone 6 or iPhone 7 finally be tempted by the iPhone XR? It supports Qi-standard wireless charging and fast charging as well - up to 50 per cent charge 30 minutes.
