According to Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, it's the most 'advanced single-lens camera the company has ever created'.

But if you wanted a sneak peek of what Apple is launching tomorrow, all you have to do is head over to notorious Apple rumour blog 9to5Mac, which published pictures of the so-called "iPhone XS" and "Apple Watch Series 4" last month. It starts at $749 for a 64GB version, and there are also 128GB and 256GB versions.

While the new phones' camera are getting some minor hardware improvements, beefed-up processors mean the phone can take multiple exposures at once and merge them together into the ideal shot, said Schiller. Users will have the option to insert one physical SIM and then set up a second plan on an integrated eSIM already inside the phone.

The new XR will come in six colours, and three sizes: 64, 128, and 256 GB.

Apple Watch - The new Apple Watch may drop the "Series 4" moniker for this year, as Apple's website leak this morning made no mention of it, only citing "Apple Watch". The iPhone XS starts from $999 for a 64-gigabyte device, and the iPhone XS Max starts from $1099 for a 64G device.

Pre-orders for the iPhone Xr begins on October 19, with the phone hitting store shelves on October 26. It offers an hour and a half more battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus and features haptic touch and Face ID. This means that it should be faster for you to unlock your new iPhone with your face. Among the new improvements are bigger sensors and the ability to adjust the depth of field of a picture to blur the background even after a photo has been taken.

All three devices also come with a more powerful "A12 Bionic" processor which allows developers to build more sophisticated video games, augmented reality experiences and other apps with real-time features that couldn't previously run on a mobile device.

While the iPhones will be the Wednesday's main attraction, Apple's growing smartwatch business will see stage time, too.
