Apple on Wednesday unveiled three new iPhones, including their most expensive ever, alongside an updated Apple Watch 4.

The new iPhone Xs boasts a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display while the iPhone Xs Max bumps up to a 6.5-inch display.

Improvements include waterproofing, improved face recognition and better stereo sound.

OLED displays go beyond traditional LCD technology by offering a display without a backlight, so pixels can turn comletely off to make blacks truly black.

Dual SIM cards in the iPhones allow users to have two phone numbers in one device.

The iPhone XS starts at $999 while the iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099.

The new iPhone XR is an LCD model that comes in a variety of colors, including blue, yellow and coral. With a price starting at $749, it is cheaper than the iPhone 8 Plus. The older iPhone 7 is still available at $449 and the iPhone 8 begins at $599.

Apple introduced the Apple Watch Series 4 with a full-screen OLED display and a slimmer chassis. The screen is 30 percent larger. New digital watch faces are coming in WatchOS 5 with room for more graphics on the larger screens.

The new Apple Watch Series 4 is FDA-approved for monitoring heart health via ECG.

The watch will start shipping Friday, September 21, with a price of $399 for the standard model and $499 with cellular connectivity.

CEO Tim Cook announces the company is about to ship its 2 billionth iOS device, a "Mission: Impossible" milestone.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
