The latest version of the Apple Watch will add features that allow it to take high-quality heart readings and detect falls.

The Apple Watch Series 1 was something of a budget option - until it was discontinued this week, the Series 1 sold for $US249.

Replacing the batteries in the iPhone X line will cost more than for other iPhones. Apple doesn't release sales figures, but estimates from two analysts suggest the company shipped roughly 18 million of the gadgets in 2017.

Apple has unveiled details of its latest in-house Arm-based system-on-chip (SoC), the A12 Bionic, powering its next-generation smartphones - and in doing so may beat rival Huawei to market with a commercial 7nm part. Both boast a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera.

The starting price of the new iPhone XS, the successor to the iPhone X, is the same as the iPhone X's: $999.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive.

Apple has already revealed what kind of price increase we're in for once the calendar hops over to 2019. Why pay $999 for the fantastic screen on the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max when you could effectively buy the same phone for $100 less? Whether you're the type of person who buys the new iPhone every year or your current phone is getting creaky with age and it's time to upgrade, you're probably wondering when these new devices will come out.
