  • Here's how pictures of the new iPhone XS leaked

Apple unveiled three new iPhones on Wednesday, including its biggest and most expensive model yet, as the company seeks to widen the product's appeal amid slowing sales.

iPhone Xs Max has a 3,300 mAh or 3,400 mAh battery which is huge. iPhone Xs will last 30 minutes more than previous iPhone and Xs Max will last one hour and 30 minutes more than the previous one. According to the company, this feature will be available to people through new software updates in the coming time. The smartphones boast whopping 458 pixel per inch (PPI), thanks to 2436 x 1125 resolution in the iPhone XS and 2688 x 1242 resolution in the iPhone XS Max.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max (read, "ten S" and "ten S Max") carry on the all-screen design of iPhone X, and also continues down the route of "no home buttons".

They come in gold, silver, and space gray.

The iPhone XS comes with a 5.8-inch screen, as the iPhone X did.

The iPhone 9 is expected to be the entry-level model to the 2018 lineup with a fullscreen 6.1-inch LCD display and Apple's FaceID sitting on a notch on top.

It comes equipped with a 12MP wide-angle camera with an all-new sensor and 1.4 million pixels (the same as in the iPhone XS and XS Max).

Just like the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max has a dual camera system on the back of the phone in a vertical stack. The portrait mode feature now gets a depth control mode, which allows you to adjust the photos. Let's take a look at them.

Superfans of Apple technology were on the edge of their seats as CEO Tim Cook explained all the flashy new phones dropping this year.

The biggest phone of the bunch, the iPhone XS Max is just a hair smaller than the footprint of last year's iPhone 8 Plus. As a primary camera, it has a 12 megapixel wide angle lens. So all those great cases already available for the iPhone X are ripe for the picking! This feature is expected to come in India.

When Apple introduced the iPhone X a year ago at a starting price of US$999, some analysts were skeptical that people would pay up so much. The new gen iPhones also get the new gen chipset, the A12 Bionic, which which Apple claims is "the smartest, most powerful chip in a smartphone".

There have been rumblings that Apple is primarily focused on ramping up production of the XS and XR models and that an update to the iPhone SE is the least of the company's worries at the moment.

Apple's iPhone XR is a more intriguing smartphone than the two premium iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max devices.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max features Super Retina displays with OLED design and it supports Dolby Vision and HDR10. The phones will be available for pre-order and shipped this month. Apple has also made the Breathe app into a watch face for easy access and other watch faces include a fire, water, and vapor dynamic watch faces.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will cost $499 for built-in connectivity and $399 for a standard model.
