Here are all the Telstra plans for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max!

Today, we are compiling all the details of the new iPhone devices that have been launched.

If you've followed Wednesday's announcements, there's nothing new here: The iPhone XS starts at $999, while the iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099.

Based on Apple's published information pertaining to the devices, it seems that iPhone XS Max owners will be in for a treat as far as the battery goes, as it seems to best iPhone 8 Plus in all aspects. It packs a 5.8 inch Super Retina OLED display with the resolution of 1125×2234 pixels.

Announced at a press event late last night, Apple's A12 Bionic is the company's latest in-house SoC design - and, like the Kirin 980, is built on TSMC's 7nm process node.

TMZ reported that the singer was "using drugs with alarming regularity" that family and friends had urged him to enter rehab. Since there is no confirmation of either of the two, all we can do is wait for their official word and a grand wedding.

Other features of the chip announced during the event include a vision processor with low-light enhancement, built-in gyropscope and accelerometer, augmented reality systems including high-accuracy motion and world tracking, a claim of 15 percent performance improvement and 40 percent reduction in power draw over the A11 while using the two high-performance cores alongside a 50 percent reduction in power draw when using the four "efficiency" cores. But hey, if you still want to be tethered using cables and have the latest and greatest phone from Apple, then you have to shell out 9 bucks for a Lightning to 3.5mm adapter.

In China, the iPhone XS supports single-SIM while iPhone XS Max brings support for dual SIM. This means that you can no longer buy a phone from Apple which has a headphone jack in it.

The Apple Watch Series 4 costs $399 sans LTE, and $499 with LTE. It also packs the same Apple A12 Bionic with 6 cores along with 3GB RAM.

Release date: The iPhone XR will be available in three different variants - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Its Pre-orders will begin on 19 October band the phone will start shipping on 26 October.
