Apple on Wednesday launched three new iPhones with new design, features and lots of under-the-hood changes.

So what did Apple announce?

Apple has officially unveiled the Apple Watch Series 4.

The Apple Watch is also able to perform an ECG test and detect a number of heart conditions, such as a low heart rate. People suffering from Atrial Fibrillation will be able to use it to avoid complications easily.

The smart watch is powered by next-generation S4 chip with a custom 64-bit dual-core processor. "We are about to ship our two billionth iOS device", he said. Other hardware improvements: the "digital crown", or turn dial on the watch's side, has also been improved to include haptic feedback, while the watch's speaker is now 50% louder. Apple has also shifted the microphone to reduce echo for better sound quality. Indeed, even Apple executives remarked that the iPhone SE was markedly more popular than they initially anticipated when the device first launched back in March of 2016.

The Apple Watch 4 pre-orders start in the middle of the night.

Apple is also releasing a larger version of the iPhone XS, with a 6.5-inch display, making it the largest Apple handset yet.

Apple has announced a more affordable new entry in its new iPhone range, the iPhone Xr. The second camera is also 12 megapixels and it is a telephoto with an aperture of f / 2.4.

Indian users have always been demanding dual sim in the iPhone.

The biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red. Available for pre-order: Friday, October 19 with availability beginning Friday, October 26.

Apple's event comes with the global smartphone market at near-peak saturation, and without a major catalyst for sales ahead of a likely rollout of 5G, or fifth generation, wireless networks, expected in 2019. The iPhone Xs Max will start at $1099.

The XR features numerous same specifications as the XS duo but has only a single rear camera, an LCD screen - unlike the XS' OLED - and starts at £749 when it goes on sale in October. Both the phones have notch housing true-depth sensor that enables FaceID and Animoji. The two phones come with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. It will cost much less than the Xs and Xs Max, predicted to be around $600. The iPhone Xs gets a 5.8-inch OLED panel, while the iPhone Xs Max comes with a larger 6.5-inch OLED display.

The watch, sold in the United States from $399 and up, will be available in stores on September 21. 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. On the front, it has a 7-megapixel camera that is capable of Face ID and portrait mode photography.

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR are the iPhones you're going to be seeing around for the next one year.
