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

To the left of the distinctly bigger device is debatably the iPhone XS, which is said to be nearly identical to last year's iPhone X. Storage options for the phone include 64 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB.

Also odd is the fact that Apple is just now expanding its livestreams to other platforms. Improved true-tone flash, 12 MP telephoto camera, 7 megapixel rear camera.

The OS, Watch OS 5 is also due for release in this event with several new features. Essentially, all that computational power makes it possible to blur the background of a portrait photo, HDR-style, with a simple slider.

9to5Mac Images of the iPhone XS and XS Max were leaked earlier this month.

Fall is a time for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and new iPhones.

Apple will live stream its iPhone launch on Twitter for the first time, as the Californian tech giant prepares to unveil its latest flagship smartphone.

Apple is expected to use the event at the Steve Jobs Theatre on its Cupertino campus to reveal as many as three new versions of the iPhone. It will cost much less than the Xs and Xs Max, predicted to be around $600.

If these pictures are legitimate, they could suggest that the LCD iPhone - rumored to be dubbed the iPhone Xc, Xr or 9 - could come in Space Gray, Silver, Red, Blue and a new brownish shade.

Numerous details announced Wednesday had already leaked before the event.

Apple had 17 percent of the smartwatch market in the second quarter of 2018 with 4.7 million units shipped, beating out second place Xiaomi half a million units and Fitbit 2 million, according to data from IDC.

The iPhone XS has the biggest battery ever put in an iPhone.

Rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has a few models that cost almost as much as Apple models, but the bulk of its line-up, like that of other phone makers, consists of cheaper models.
