  • Apple to enable the eSIM chip on the 2018 iPhone models with a future iOS 12 update

The device brings a design overhaul to the Apple Watch as the iPhone-maker is now using a new dual-core 64-bit chipset, custom created to improve performance.

This year's three top phones are all more expensive than last year's models. So, what are the important differences to know before you choose which new iPhone X is right for you? The worst part? These new features won't officially launch until spring. The XS has the smallest physical footprint of the three, while the XS Max comes with an enormous screen of 6.5-inches.

The new iPhones will produce better low-light photos because the main camera lens has a large micron pixel size of 1.4 - the only other phone with pixel size that large is the Huawei P20 Pro. Apple demonstrated one app, HomeCourt, that uses the camera viewfinder to track and analyse basketball shots to provide real-time feedback that can help players improve their technique.

There's also Dual-SIM support but for those outside of China would need to use an e-SIM for the secondary connection.

And the XR model is the cheapest at $1,229 for the 64GB and $1,479 for the 512GB model. There are 512 GB storage options for the first time.

The XS Max will have all those upgrades, but it's bigger.

The iPhone XS and XS Max will be available to pre-order on Friday September 14, and ship Friday September 21 in the United States and other countries.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are preparing to return to Premier League action on Saturday evening when they travel to Watford.

The iPhone XR is kind of that. Its front has a similar edge-to-edge display, but LCD instead of OLED.

The XR is coming a little later than the XS is, with a sale date of October 19 and an arrival date of October 26. Clearly, Apple wants to kill-off the headphone jack.

"They have finally added a larger-screen phone so that they can directly compete with the Galaxy Note 9 products", Gartner analyst Annette Zimmermann said at the event at Apple's Silicon Valley headquarters, referring to rival Samsung Electronics which has led the trend toward big-screen phones.

As has been the case with so many smartphone innovations in the past, such as Near Field Communication (NFC) or wireless charging, Android manufacturers have been first in terms of adoption, but Apple's union of hardware and software means it has been the one to take them mainstream. The watches can be pre-ordered from 14 September with cellular connectivity, starting at $499, or just Global Positioning System, starting at $399.

"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. The larger display size allows the device to show more information.

The new watch can detect if you have taken a fall and call emergency services.

Appearing at the Apple event, Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president of the American Heart Association, called the heart-monitoring features "game changing", especially the ability to detect an irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation. Prices for Hong Kong have not been announced, but US pricing has the XS starting at US$999, XS Max US$1,099, and XR at US$749.
