The new iPhones are likely to start at $800 for the LCD model, $900 for the iPhone X update and $1,000 for 6.5-inch OLED model, up from last year's starting prices of $699, $799 and $999, according to Nomura Group.

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.

The company also said the XS Max housed the biggest battery the company had ever placed into an iPhone, which would give users 90 minutes more battery life than last year's iPhone X.

Finally, a 6.1 inch iPhone Xr is expected, and this is slated to be the go-to model. Apple iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED starting at Rs 76,900.

The new iPhone XS Max will also feature the largest battery added to an Apple phone to date, and both new iPhone XS models will be capable of using two SIM cards and two phone numbers at once.

While the 6.1-inch display seems large, with the reduced bezels above and below the display the phone will be slightly smaller than a traditional "Plus" iPhone and only slightly larger than the 5.8-inch iPhone XS. It's a more affordable version of the XS, and it comes in a number of bright colors. In video mode, the iPhone Xs and Xs Max can record stereo sound. That computational power allows for neural learning in apps that assess your basketball shots, place your selfies inside movie scenes, let you play augmented reality versions of Galaga as well as the upcoming Elder Scrolls Blades from Todd "The Boy" Howard himself.

'The iPhone Xs Max price reflects the name.,' Twitter user @juhasaarinen wrote. Both the new iPhones will be succeeding the existing iPhone X. Here's what you need to know about the trio of smartphones, including confirmation of dual-Sim support. Instead of the impressive IP68 dust and water resistance rating that the XS range has, the iPhone XR will only have IP67, which is an global scale judging how water or dust resistant something is. This model will be available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB options starting at $749 United States dollars. The sensor is the same found on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max.

It will be available to order from 19 October, and will start shipping on 26 October.

As we mentioned before, these events typically announce the newest iPhone.

The company also no longer includes the adapter with the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8 and 8 Plus.
