Despite some eye-watering prices for the new iPhone XS and XS Max (and even the entry-level iPhone XR), Apple has quietly removed the free, bundled dongle that allowed you to connect 3.5mm headphones to the Apple Lightning connection.

The iPhone Xr doesn't have the same high-end screen that is used on the iPhone XS, but comes with a similarly powerful processor and a 12MP camera.

Ru Bhikha, mobiles expert at uSwitch.com, said although these were steep prices, such figures were common for modern smartphones, and there was enough choice to satisfy all budgets.

The AirPower was slated to ship in 2018, shortly after the iPhone X was launched - but it was delayed to this September owing to 'technical hurdles.' Now that the keynote is over, Apple has six handsets that support wireless charging - but no wireless charger to sell with it.

Apple has unveiled the most expensive iPhone it has ever made, as part of a range of new product announcements.

"History tells us that every time Apple introduces a new larger-screen iPhone, it prompts a surge in upgrades by existing owners". In 2016, the price of the iPhone 7 Plus topped out at $969.

The XS will start at £999, the same as last year's iPhone X.

On stage at the company's live event at its Apple Park campus in California, a fourth generation Apple Watch was also announced by the firm.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 features sensors that can detect when wearers suffer a heavy fall as well as alert them if it clocks abnormal heart rates.
