*Apple’s annual September press conference kicked off on Wednesday at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, where CEO Tim Cook announced the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, CNN Money reports.
The high-end iPhone X is getting an upgrade and new size options: a 5.8-inch iPhone XS ($999) and the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max ($1,099). The Max has a larger display than the usual Plus size phones but a similar body.
The devices don’t have a home button and feature Face ID in lieu of a Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
The cameras on the phones are “better than ever before,” said Apple exec Phil Schiller. The new 12 megapixel cameras have bigger sensors and an improved HDR mode, the report states.

The Apple Watch now sends notifications when your heart rate is too low, or if your heart rhythm is irregular—helping to detect and diagnose problems early on. The watch starts at $399 for GPS, $499 for cellular.
