If you're not already foaming at the mouth at the £999 starting price, you might also be interested to discover that the iPhone Xs represents the next era of Apple smartphones: it's the first IP68-rated iPhone; the one with the biggest screen (6.5in on the Max); has the biggest battery; and its display is fitted with a buttery-smooth 120Hz panel with HDR10 support.
The biggest news of the day was the iPhone Xs, Apple's new flagship smartphone and successor to last year's iPhone X.
Apparently it's the strongest glass Apple has ever used on a smartphone, although considering how much the iPhone X's fix bills are we're not willing to test that theory any time soon.
The company has been affected by leaks in the past.
Apple's new iPhone models don't have one revolutionary feature, but they have some incremental improvements that continue to make them some of the best phones on the market.

Over the weekend , the governors of Virginia , North Carolina and SC declared states of emergency, according to CNN . A mandatory evacuation order was issued noon Monday for North Carolina's Hatteras Island.
And technology-lovers will only have a few days to wait before they can pre-order the latest incarnations of the world's most popular phone, with orders being taken from Sept. 14 and shipping for Saudi Arabia and the UAE starting on Sept. 21. iPhone addicts in Oman and Bahrain will have a week longer to wait, with the iPhones arriving in the two countries a week later on Sept. 28. Both will have dual SIM capability meaning you can have two numbers on the same phone. Under the hood, there is the Apple S4 SoC that includes a 64-bit dual-core processor and a new GPU. All three have Apple's new A12 chip and Face ID, but the XS models feature more vivid OLED displays.
The new watch, with a price tag that starts at $399 in the USA and €499 ($580) in Germany, is a more comprehensive health device.
The iPhone Xs, like its predecessor, has a screen that occupies nearly the entirety of the phone's frontage.
The iPhone Xs Max is virtually identical with the iPhone Xs, safe for the screen size: The super-sized premium iPhone features a OLED screen with a vertical screen size of 6.5 inches with a resolution of 2688 by 1242 pixels, and a pixel density of 458 ppi.
Both models introduce 512GB storage options for the first time, which lifts pricing to $2,199 for the iPhone Xs and $2,369 for the iPhone Xs Max. Apple also said that its next major update to its iOS operating system will come next Tuesday, followed a week later by a Mac software update. The first new design for the watch since its launch three years ago, the new Apple Watch has a almost edge-to-edge display and comes in both 40mm and 44mm sizes. Apple confirmed that all band colours and styles will fit all generations, so existing straps can be fitted to the Watch 4.
The Watch 4 is available from $279 in either silver, gold, or space grey, or you can opt for the more expensive stainless finish which brings polished, space black or gold varieties.
Weighing these futuristic new features against their hefty price tags, will you be waiting in line to grab your next iPhone or Apple Watch?
