Apple has officially killed the home button on iPhones

Well, welcome to the future everyone. Still, that "cheap" price will cost you in the long run as far as features are concerned.

The TL;DR version? Nothing revolutionary. Even the fact that Apple discontinued last year's iPhone X shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that the new iPhone XS seemingly serves as an entry-level option for consumers eager to pick up a new device without necessarily breaking the bank.

We'll start with the XS. It's also powered by the same A12 chip the new flagship iPhones use.

The iPhone XR takes the notch, minimal bezels and a big screen, and packs them into an affordable iPhone. The Xs Max has an enhanced "cinematic" display for improved viewing of videos, movies and games.

The iPhone Xs Max sports the largest display ever offered on an Apple smartphone with a rounded 6.5-inch screen.

Inside the new Apple Watch 4, we see Apple transition to a new SiP (Silicon in Package) design with a new S4 SoC containing for the first time a custom Apple designed CPU and GPU.

In addition, unlike the stainless steel compositions of the Xs and Xs Max, the Xr is made of "7000 series aerospace grade aluminum" with a glass back for wireless charging, while opting for a single 12-megapixel wide-angle rear lens camera, rather than dual lenses.

For comparison, the iPhone XS Max is bigger even than the Galaxy Note 9, which spans 6.4 inches.

I'll need to start saving if I want one won't I?

With the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, Apple has revealed some of its most expensive phones yet.

Forecasters: Florence to Take Aim at US East Coast as Major Hurricane
As of 12pm EST, the storm was centered approximately 1,230 miles from Cape Fear, North Carolina . The hurricane is likely to bring risky surf and rip currents along the east coast.

Like the XS and XS MAX, the XR has a new Depth Control slider feature that lets you adjust the depth-of-field in Portrait Mode photos after they're captured, going from maximum bokeh at f/1.8 to maximum depth-of-field at f/16.

And the XR model is the cheapest at $1,229 for the 64GB and $1,479 for the 512GB model.

Basically, after one of its launch events, Apple updates its streaming page to add a rundown of what it announced during the event. For folks who follow Apple's naming conventions: It's an "S" upgrade, Apple's every-other-year cycle for big new launches.

The Series 4 range will have an edge-to-edge screen like the new iPhones and is packing a bunch of features aimed at turning it into serious medical device.

Apple will continue to sell the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 in regular and Plus sizes.

"Did they really name the new iPhone the 'excess"?' XS?

How about a new operating system instead?

It's supposed to speed up your whole phone (like opening your camera app or typing on the keyboard). With curved corners, it's also slightly thinner, has more reliable reception and two times faster, thanks to a new processor. For example Apple claims the new watch is able to discern between falling, tripping and slipping just based on the movements that the person makes - whose detection is now enables by the new hardware sensor capabilities.
