Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max are now available for pre-order

How to preorder iPhone XS or XS Max Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max are now available for pre-order

One major upgrade is Apple's 7nm A12 Bionic, powering the trio.

Overall, then, TechRadar's Gareth Beavis concludes that the iPhone XR is likely going to be Apple's "volume driver" over the next year in terms of sales, and especially so in the Asian market, which may go to explain the slightly odd, larger than XS screen.

If you're clinging to wired headphones, you might not like what Apple's doing with its new iPhones. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the high-end mobile devices having a 5.8 inch and 6.5 inch OLED super retina displays. All other details are same as that of the iPhone XS.

At the time of writing there was no pre-order options for the new Apple Watch on the Vodafone website - it merely has the release date listed as September 21.

Arguably the most notable new product: the iPhone Xr delivers iPhone X style with a price cut and some caveats. Gareth notes that the industry were expecting this model to be delayed slightly, releasing after the iPhone XS, so a concurrent release is most welcome. We have a whole post on pre-ordering your iPhone XS or XS Max.

In China, the iPhone XS supports single-SIM while iPhone XS Max brings support for dual SIM.

iPhone XS and XS Max will be available for pre-orders starting at 3:01 pm on September 14, Friday.

Luckily, if you owned a previous iPhone that came with a wired dongle, you can still use that with the new Apple handsets. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red.

Gareth is very clear in his summation of the iPhone XR's camera system, which he states is "the weakest of the three phones" just announced by the American maker.

The third iPhone announced on Wednesday, the "affordable" iPhone XR, is coming a bit later; pre-orders start on October 19, and shipments will commence on October 26.
