The big event by Apple has already started. The CEO of the company Tim Cook took to the stage to greet his fans and end the wait for the launch of the next-generation iPhones. The so rumored event is held in the Steve Jobs Theater at the company’s new headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Today, the most rumored next-generation iPhone is launched officially. While the first release was the Apple Watch series 4 people are much excited to see the unveiling of new iPhones. Cook says the new iPhone Xs takes iPhones to the next level, and it comes in Gold color along with Space Gray and Silver, unlike last year’s model.

iPhone XS ScreenAs we see the officially launched iPhone for the first time the new iPhone doesn’t seem to look different from the iPhone X. It has a 5.8-inch display and the iPhone Xs Max sports a bigger 6.5-inch panel, the biggest on a mainstream smartphone. The glass on both models is the most durable ever on a smartphone, and the duo feature surgical-grade steel. They also have IP68 certification for dust- and water-resistant (up to 2-metres and 30 minutes). OLED panels with 2436×1125-pixel resolution have been carried over from the last year’s flagship in the iPhone Xs, while the Xs Max model has 2688×1242-pixel resolution and OLED screen.

iPhone XS MaxApple has brought a reportedly bigger screen iPhone called the iPhone Xs Max. This Max model has a huge 6.5-inch screen bigger than the iPhone 8 Plus (5.5 inches) and the Galaxy Note 9 (6.4 inches). This max size might make you think that this is going to be hard to hold than any Plus-sized iPhone. Well, though the XS Max is definitively larger than the other iPhones its extra screen size will come more from the height rather than from additional width.

The iPhone launch event may even see the launch of the dual-SIM model, a long-awaited feature in markets such as China, India, and several countries in Europe. Other products you can expect from the event area pro-focused Mac mini, a wireless charger, and an entry-level MacBook model.
