You Can Pre-Order The iPhone Xs In Australia Right Now

Apple ditches dongles for older iPhones too

Batteries for more recent iPhones will be $49, and batteries for the iPhone X will be $69 beginning next year.

Still, if you're considering any of the fancy new iPhones from Apple but already own an iPhone, you should wait until iOS 12 becomes available, on Monday, before making a final decision.

The iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr will be available for pre-order directly from Apple on the site and in the Apple Store app starting at midnight Pacific. Though the XR is cheaper, it does have a larger screen: 6.1 inches to the XS's 5.8 inches. A breakthrough dual-camera system. The iPhone Xs is taking the iPhone further than ever before. You can compare them all here.

Apple also rolled out a new watch, the Series 4, which sets itself apart in the tech space with its high functionality as a health device. One of such features is an electrocardiogram (ECG) sensor which can measure heart rate and rhythm, able to detect heart rhythm disorders.

Compared to the Apple A11 chipset that powers the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the hexa-core A12 offers almost 33.3 percent increased performance, doubled GPU score, 50 percent improvement in UX score and around 20 percent improvement in memory score because of which the iPhone XS has managed to achieve such an impressive benchmarking score. Apple claims to have stress-tested the new models in pints of beer and swimming pools (classic Apple), and says the phones will be fine for up to 30 minutes in roughly six feet of water.

It's that time of the year when we head to California to get a bite of the juicy apples!
