The iPhone Xs Max has a 6.5-inch display, OLED, Super Retina, 458 ppi, with both Dolby Vision and HDR10.

Similar in size to the Plus versions of previous iPhones and competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Note but the screen takes up a larger chunk of the phone, making it the "biggest display ever on an iPhone", Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Apple.

What just happened? Apple's iPhone X no longer fit into the company's refreshed product line, nor did the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s. You're still getting a 12 megapixel camera, but you'll only have a single lens on this model. While the new Watch models are thinner, Apple says they also have larger screens, providing displays that are over 30 percent larger than those of the Series 3. One other perk: The iPhone XR will be available in a variety of colors including black, red, white, blue, coral and yellow.

The phones will include the ability to support dual SIM cards, which means people can put two phone numbers or phone plans on the same phone.

AppleCare, a payment plan to cover iPhone repairs, was listed as being offered for the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR.

CEO Tim Cook and other executives will announce the latest Apple hardware updates in front of a packed room of media members, analysts, special guests and employees.

The new iPhone comes with a massive internal storage of 512 GB (can store upto 2,00,000 photos). The Xr will be available in Canada starting at $1,029 according to Apple. It still has the edge-to-edge design and Face ID, replacing Touch ID entirely in the new iPhone lineup.

The sitemap listings also reference the iPhone XR, believed to be the cheaper handset with a 6.1in LCD screen to replace the iPhone 8 as the company's entry-level device.

Here are five of the biggest announcements from Apple's annual iPhone event, held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif.

There's the same A12 Bionic processor and the same 12MP wide-angle camera from its big brothers - yes, there's just one rear-facer, but it offers numerous same features.

Just open your browser and head to apple.com or click on the link below-in the past it required using an Apple product, but now they've opened it up to any modern browser. The watch also packs an improved accelerometer and gyroscope with twice the dynamic range, which allows the new wearable to do things such as detect when you've fallen down - and start an emergency call if you can't get up. It's got a new walkie-talkie mode in watchOS 5, and a seriously improved operating system. In return, the iPhone Xr starts at $749 for the 64GB version, the iPhone Xs starts at $999 and the iPhone Xs Max starts at $1099.

AirPower Wireless Charging Mat - this was announced quite a while ago, and should have launched in the spring.
