City-based supply chain solutions provider Redington said on Thursday would offer the newly-launched Apple iPhone models iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max at its retail outlets across the country.

Apple also showed off a cheaper iPhone, called the iPhone XR. Expectations for Apple's lineup have been fueled by reports from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is based in Taiwan, where numerous contracts manufacture that also make Apple products are based.

Lets say goodbye to the iPhone design that has been with us since 2014 – the iPhone X from a year ago is the blueprint for Apples future models.

Finally, the XS features Dual Sim Dual Standby (DSDS) technology that allows people to use two phone numbers with one iPhone.

The iPhone XR has ditched the Home button and Touch ID in favor of Face ID and the TrueDepth camera.

Other: Face ID, NFC, Wireless charging, 3D Touch.

The updated bokeh rendering allows you to adjust the depth of field after a photo has been taken.The power of the A12 Bionic chipset has been put to use in the Smart HDR feature.

In case you were also wondering, each of the new phones, despite otherwise edge-to-edge displays, has a "notch" at the top of their screens that masksthe front camera and sensors.

Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are available in three storage variants. There will also be three versions available for the smartphone: a 64GB model, a 128GB model, and a 256GB model. Finally, the Neural engine now has 8 cores for machine learning and is nearly almost 10 x faster. Sitting in between the iPhone XS (5.8 inches) and iPhone XS Max (6.5 inches), the iPhone XR features a 6.1-inch display with a resolution of 1792x828, with a pixel density of 326ppi. Like its predecessor, it uses a combination of multiple high-energy processing cores for more intensive tasks, as well as multiple high-efficiency cores for light work like checking email and browsing the web.

The company claims that Face ID could be used for a host of things such as unlocking applications, paying for shopping in stores and even paying for cab rides using Apple Pay.

It's no secret that Apple tends to bump off an older iPhone variant when new handsets are launched, but this time round one of the fatalities is a little more poignant.

One of the other downgrades the XR comes with is a lower overall maximum storage capacity.

The iPhone is still Apple's most-important product, generating about two-thirds of revenue.

The all new iPhone Xs will be priced similar to the iPhone X, and will cost you $999 for the base variant. And though this screen size was bigger than the previous iPhone 8 Plus' 5.5in display, many people lamented the fact that there was no "Plus"-sized iPhone X". It has a single rear camera though, a 12MP wide-angle sensor, but it has a portrait mode as well.

For comparison, the iPhone XS Max is bigger even than the Galaxy Note 9, which spans 6.4 inches.

Apple, like Google, is also introducing tools so that users can better monitor and limit the amount of time they spend gawping at their iDevice.
