  • Apple iPhone Xs, Xs Max: 5 coolest features

A big part of the absurdly high price tag of the R18,000 iPhone X that launched previous year was the OLED screen.

The iPhone XS Max on the other hand has a huge 6.5-inch OLED Super Retina Display making it the largest phone Apple has ever built and one of the largest smartphones available.

Despite all the new sensors, bigger displays, and more powerful processors, the Apple Watch maintain its estimated battery life of 18 hours, so you won't have to worry about it lasting through a day, but it will also not take you much further.

Apple also introduced a fourth generation of Apple Watch with a major redesign - and a series of features created to improve its performance as a medical and health device.

The company has been affected by leaks in the past.

Does size matter? Well, if you are Apple in 2018 then it certainly does as the company just unveiled its biggest ever iPhone.

The tech giant will live-stream its event on the social media platform for the first time on Wednesday as it looks to draw in a larger audience.

Its "next-generation gyroscope" means the Watch 4 is capable of detecting when the user has a fall, based on the arm motions of its user as they tumble, and is also fitted with software that lets users take an electrocardiogram, the first over-the-counter device to do so. It will be available for pre-orders starting September 14 and will go on sale starting September 21. Another notable addition: Both the XS and XS Max support a dual-SIM card system, enabling multiple phone numbers and easier global travel.




"Apple Watch Series 4 is the ultimate guardian for your health, the best fitness companion, and the most convenient way to stay connected", Apple COO Jeff Williams during the press conference. Both have OLED displays and an "all new" camera system. Apple has also cut prices of the Apple Watch Series 3 in India, and it now starts at Rs. 28,900 for the GPS version, and Rs. 37,900 for the GPS+Cellular version.

Instead of a dual camera, the iPhone XR features a single 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle lens.

But the price-tag of the top model will again have even the most ardent Apple fan wincing, with the XS Max going for an eye-watering $1,100 - $100 more than last year's iPhone X. In the aftermath of the launch, questions were being asked about how high technology firms can push the prices of smartphones before consumers kick back. The 512GB iPhone XS Max will put a €1,300 dent in your pocket.

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. The company is calling it Apple Watch Series 4.

Inside the iPhone XS and XS Max, you've got the same guts: the A12 bionic chip.

"Apple Watch isn't just the number one smart watch, it is the number one watch in the world period", Tim Cook, CEO of Apple said.

Weighing these futuristic new features against their hefty price tags, will you be waiting in line to grab your next iPhone or Apple Watch?
