On Wednesday, Apple unveiled a suite of new iPhones from the Steve Jobs Auditorium in Cupertino, Calif.
The flagship model, the iPhone Xs, will cost $999, while the larger model, the Xs Max (the biggest iPhone ever with a massive 6.5-inch screen) will cost $1,099. Apple also unveiled a “budget” phone for $749. They will be available in stores on September 21.
The iPhone Xs — which is 5.8 inches long, the same size as the iPhone X — is similar to the current iPhone X model in other ways, too. However, it boasts upgrades like a faster processor, upgraded camera, and a more dynamic display. The phone will come in a new color, gold, to accompany silver and space gray.
The new phones feature faster FaceID, better speakers, and an improved display. The iPhone Xs-series camera has an improved camera with a new, larger sensor and bigger pixels with a faster processor to enable users to change the depth-of-field of a photo after you take it. It will also spot a new processor, the “A12 Bionic,” new iOS, 12, and added battery life of 30 minutes to the X and 90 minutes to the Xs Max. The new flagship iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are also more splash and water-resistant and can withstand up to six and a half feet of water for 30 minutes.
The “budget” phone uses aluminum instead of steel, and has a 6.1-inch LCD screen instead of the more expensive OLED displays featured in the higher end iPhones.
