San Francisco: Apple has unveiled three new iPhones overnight, including its biggest and most expensive model yet, as the company seeks to widen the product's appeal amid slowing sales. The phone shown in the ad is different from the phone in an earlier dual-SIM iPhone leak, so we may be looking at different models or an inaccurate leak.

Apple on Wednesday introduced three new versions of the iPhone, including the premium Xs and Xs Max.

As indicated, there might be the large iPhone XS Max and apart from the 6.5-inch display, Apple could try out a 3-camera setup and support for the Apple Pencil on this model.

Interestingly it's got a bigger screen than the XS, coming in a 6.1 inches. That would make it one of the largest mass-market phones ever sold and about an inch larger than the screen on the iPhone 8 Plus.

The XS Max will have all those upgrades, but it's bigger.

Apple Inc. took the wraps off a renewed iPhone strategy on Wednesday, debuting a trio of phones that aim to spread the company's latest technology to a broader audience. Four cores are efficiency cores that use up to 50 percent less power. The processor helps apps launch up to 30 percent faster.

While the new phones' camera are getting some minor hardware improvements, beefed-up processors mean the phone can take multiple exposures at once and merge them together into the ideal shot, said Schiller.

Moving to the camera, both the iPhones will have two 12-MP cameras one of which will be a telephoto lens and the other will be a wide-angle lens. It features Smart HDR, which automatically makes improvements to photos using machine learning.

'The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminum and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six lovely finishes.

What if I don't want to buy a new iPhone? Users will have the option to insert one physical SIM and then set up a second plan on an integrated eSIM already inside the phone.

Storage: Both phones can be ordered with up to a whopping 512 GB of storage-double the amount of the iPhone X. ALSO NOTE: This is Apple's first 7-nanometer chip in an iPhone.

The Xr will be available about a month later than the other two models, with orders starting October 19, and it will ship a week later.

iPhone Xr should be considered the successor to the iPhone 8, and it is the cheapest of the new iPhones. Luckily, Apple placed the microphone on the opposite side of the speaker as well, so say goodbye to chaos and hello to clear, crisp sounds. To signify the even larger screen, Apple is likely to give the phone a new name: "iPhone Xs Max", according to people familiar with Apple's internal deliberations.
