The new 2018 iPhones have finally been announced, and all the rumors and leaks have turned out to be true.

If you can get over the size and price (and that's a big ask) the iPhone XS Max is the phone to go for out of the new devices.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max: The event also included the announcements of new iPhone models.

The iPhone Xs is said to last 30 minutes longer than the X, while the iPhone Xs Max lasts 90 minutes longer.

Equipped with an LCD-based 6.1-inch "liquid retina" display as well as Apple's coveted Face ID system found in last year's iPhone X, Xr is an affordable addition sure to please cash-strapped iPhone fans.

Similar to iPhone X and iPhone Xs in appearance, Xs Max features the trademark notch and edge to edge display. This means that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will now cost $449 and $569, respectively, bringing the price more in line with mid-range handsets.

This should be the first 7nm chipset to hit the market.

Of course, Apple touted the superior sales numbers of the Apple Watch as well as how much Apple Watch "improves" your life. There's a 4-core GPU in there, too, that's up to 50 percent faster, and an 8-core Neural Engine focused on machine learning.

The selfie camera has been improved as well. Apple WatchSeries 4 has a redesigned UI with new complications.

But don't let that fool you. And when it comes to capturing video, there's a faster sensor with better low-light performance and video stablization, as well as support for recording stereo sound thanks to the four built-in microphones. T-Mobile CEO John Legere has confirmed that T-Mo will offer both models, but there's no word yet on T-Mobile's pricing for them.

China will get a special model that actually has two physical SIM slots.

There's no way you'll be able to use the iPhone XS Max with one hand though. And of course, there's a new Gold color option. And just like on the iPhone X previous year, you'll now swipe up from the bottom of the display in order to return to your Home screen. An updated iPhone X, now called the XS, stays at $1,000.

However, Apple won't be including the dongle with newly-purchased iPhones - and each dongle costs R199 each.

Apple said it would take pre-orders in Saudi Arabia and the UAE from Friday, September 14 and the devices would also become available in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar from Friday, September 21. The devices will start shipping on September 24th to the first list of regions, and on September 28th to the several other regions.

The 5.8-inch iPhone Xs and 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max feature stunning Super Retina displays, a faster and improved dual camera system that offers breakthrough photo and video features, the first 7-nanometer chip in a smartphone - the A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine - faster Face ID, wider stereo sound, a lovely new gold finish and introduce Dual SIM to iPhone. There is no 3D Touch feature here, but it does get a new haptic touch based system. It has a single rear camera though, a 12MP wide-angle sensor, but it has a portrait mode as well. It's an OLED panel with a resolution of 2688x1242 giving it the same density as the smaller iPhone Xs at 458 ppi. In India, the Apple iPhone XR will start at Rs.76,900 MRP.
