Battery life on the iPhone Xs is pegged at 30 minutes more than the iPhone X, while the iPhone Xs Max features the biggest battery Apple has ever made and boosts longevity by 90 minutes.

Apple's Phil Schiller introduced the new iPhones at their annual event.

APPLE smashed all smartphone price records this morning, unveiling its biggest iPhone screen inside its most eye-wateringly expensive mobile phone to date. The iPhone XR has a similar design as the Xs and Xs Max, as well as the outgoing iPhone X. Naturally, the jokes about buying an iPhone with a kidney were back and so were the jokes about its chargers. The display gets native support for True Tone and wide colour support, which Apple claims can deliver a better viewing experience. With Bollywood memes and dash of desi humour, these relatable jokes have left everyone ROFL-ing. The iPhone Xs gets a 5.8-inch OLED panel, while the iPhone Xs Max comes with a larger 6.5-inch OLED display.

The biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red. The iPhone XR will be available to order October 19th and available in stores October 26th. To reach customers not willing to pay that much, Apple will have the iPhone XR. FaceID also makes a return with faster algorithms for detection and verification than before. It comes equipped with a 12MP wide-angle camera with an all-new sensor and 1.4 million pixels (the same as in the iPhone XS and XS Max).

Shares of optical components makers Lumentum Holdings and Finisar, suppliers that power iPhone X's Face ID feature and the TrueDepth camera technology, were down 1.6 per cent and 0.4 per cent in afternoon trading.

The sitemap listings also reference the iPhone XR, believed to be the cheaper handset with a 6.1in LCD screen to replace the iPhone 8 as the company's entry-level device. "It is a smart strategy to keep more people in the Apple ecosystem and get even more people to come into it".

Apple is calling it a Liquid Retina HD display and they say it's the most advanced LCD in the industry.

Tell us the truth.did you ever imagine that one day you'd be contemplating spending more than a grand for a telephone? 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.

iPhone XR will be available with 64GB, 128GB, 256GB of storage memory and run on Apple's iOS 12 operating system.
