Apple announces iPhone Xs and Xs Max (+Quick specs)

All to soon, Apple has finally launched its new iPhone Xs and Xs Max with 5.8″ and 6.5″ OLED screens.

Apple has been hit with a series of leaks in recent weeks, detailing all the new products it plans to unleash on the world.

Apple CEO Tim Cook kicked off proceedings with an appearance on stage at the Steve Jobs Theatre, inside the company’s new Apple Park campus.

The tech giant opened its launch event by unveiling its new Apple Watch Series 4, with upgraded healthcare features and heart rate sensors.

According to Tim, the two new devices “took iPhone to the next level”. Both devices feature the same all-screen front panel that was first introduced on last year’s iPhone X, and use facial recognition technology to unlock the device.
