Apple Introduces $749 6.1-inch iPhone Xr

As the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and Apple Watch 4 grabbed the headlines, the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus and, most importantly, the iPhone SE quietly disappeared from the firm's website. The iPhone XR comes in at a bit less, starting from $749 for a 64G device. Pricing starts at US$999 for the iPhone Xs and $1,099 for the iPhone X Max. Pre-orders begin on October 19, and the phone will ship on October 26.

It's the biggest iPhone ever, with a whopping 6.5 inch display (up from the 5.8 inch screen on the XS model).

The iPhone Xs Max, pronounced like "tennis max", might just as well be read as "excess max".

The pair have a similar design and features to the existing iPhone X - including its much-hyped Face ID unlock system - with a few key additions.

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. There's a 12MP wide-angle camera, 12MP telephoto lens, 7.2MP front camera and improved True Tone flash.

And, Schiller said, the XS line-up features 'the most lovely iPhone we've ever made'. And you better believe that the internet has some opinions on what we now know to be the iPhone Xs, Xs Max and XR.

Apple says older iPhone models should also get a speed boost after downloading the new operating system.

In the end, though, the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are about doing just what we expected Apple to do: give its flagship a polish and keep it looking competitive against the high-end Android alternatives.

RIP Home Button, you had a good run. The cameras use what Apple is calling "Smart HDR" that composites shadows, highlights, and other details into a single image.

Most of the new phones' performance improvements stem from the A12 Bionic processor. The iPhone XR, available for pre-order October 19 and launching on October 26, will be available in Red, Yellow, White, Coral, Black and Blue.

This bigger display will allow for richer, more customizable watch faces, which you can outfit with new complications including your favorite contacts and multiple time zones. To be accurate, only one version will have the ability to accommodate two physical SIM cards: a dual-SIM version of the iPhone Xs Max intended for China.

The iPhone XR uses the same TrueDepth camera as the iPhone XS.

The iPhone XR is also able to take Portrait Mode photos, despite the fact that it has only a single camera.
