Apple shows off its most expensive iPhone yet

Follow live updates below.

Apple has announced the third phone in its new line-up: the iPhone XR. A bigger version will be called the iPhone XS Max, which looks to be about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus, though the screen size is much larger.

All three new models join the iPhone X in getting rid of the home button to make room for more screen. It retains the key advances of the first iPhone X - facial recognition and an edge-to-edge display - but is cheaper while being noticeably larger at 6.1 inches.

If confirmed, the 6.5in iPhone XS Max is expected to be the company's most expensive to date, surpassing the £999 iPhone X introduced this time previous year.

Photos on the new phone will have a 60% greater dynamic range than the iPhone X.

Experts believe these features will drive up the price of the new iPhone line.

By making more expensive iPhones, Apple has been able to boost its profits despite waning demand as people upgrade phones less frequently.

'IPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology, in handsome new designs, at a more affordable price'. The upgrades will mark the most-significant changes to the Apple Watch since the product was launched in 2014. We'll likely see a new hardware design, but it won't be too different, according to photos obtained by 9to5Mac. What are your thoughts on the new accessories? It has a larger screen and a built-in heart sensor that the company said can detect irregular heart rates and perform an electrocardiogram. "I'm excited to show you what is, by far, the most advanced iPhone we have ever created".

Last year, Apple previewed a charging mat called AirPower, but never mentioned it again.

Apple will no longer provide the Lightning to 3.5mm adapter with the iPhone. But the device still hasn't shipped. What are you hoping that Apple announces tomorrow above anything else?

iPhone Xr should be considered the successor to the iPhone 8, and it is the cheapest of the new iPhones. AirPods were mocked by some for its goofy looks when it debuted 2 years ago but is a hit with consumers.

Both are expected to have a slightly longer battery life, as well.

We've been using Mojave since it came out, and it's been rock-solid stable for us, especially in the more recent betas.

Apple has a habit of throwing in a few surprises at its launch events so expect plenty of other shiny new gadgets to be unveiled including a new Apple Watch. What's on your radar this week, the one thing that's at the top of your potential to-buy list?
