The Apple iPhone XS Max, due in Australia on September 21, will feature major upgrades to its display, its speed, its cameras, and even its colour, but it will cost Australian buyers more than $2000 for the first time, breaking last year's record price for the iPhone X by more than $500.

Both of the models offer the same internal specs, but the iPhone X Max has a 6.5-inch display in roughly the same footprint of an iPhone 8 Plus.

And Apple didn't stop at one iPhone this year: you'll have to choose between the Xs, the Xs Max (the Xs' bigger brother) and the confusingly named iPhone XR - a cheaper option if you don't fancy dipping into your rainy-day fund.

The phone, which comes with a 6.1-inch screen, will be made available to customers at the lower price of $749.

Apart from its screen specifications, the iPhone XR also uses the new A12 Bionic processor that the XS and XS Max also use, which boasts more cores and faster speeds than previous models. One other perk: The iPhone XR will be available in a variety of colors including black, red, white, blue, coral and yellow.

Three new smartphones have been launched during the Apple event - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will be available from 21 September, with orders starting this Friday, 14 September on Apple.com for the United Kingdom, or here for the US.

Like their predecessor, the iPhone X, the name is meant to be pronounced as the number 10. It's also updating the portrait mode feature so users can fine-tune each image.

Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are available in three storage variants.

Superfans of Apple technology were on the edge of their seats as CEO Tim Cook explained all the flashy new phones dropping this year. And some will carry other new features such as two SIMs-microchips that allow smartphone users to connect to a wireless network-making it easier for travelers to use their phones overseas, these people said. Folks here could be forking out as much as S$2,349 - the price of a decked out gaming computer - to get the best iteration of Apple's latest iPhone.

Switching our attention to the iPhone XR, Apple's budget offering gets a liquid retina LCD display and a single camera at the rear. The sensor is the same found on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max. Apple says the camera along with smarter AI-based algorithms can deliver better imaging capabilities than the iPhone 8. You'll have to wait a bit longer for the iPhone XR, which launches on 26 October, with preorders from 19 October.

But the arrival of the iPhone Xs and Xr phones reminds us that the deal will soon expire, and prices will go up after December 31st.
