Apple has been showing off three brand new iPhones for 2018, and if you're interested in the biggest of the lot – and the most expensive – then let us introduce you to the phone known as the iPhone XS Max.

This 6.5-inch, 2,688 x 1,242 pixel resolution behemoth comes with an OLED screen (like the iPhone X) and a hefty set of dimensions. You can pick up the iPhone XS Max with 64GB, 256GB or a huge 512GB of internal storage, with the prices rising accordingly.

As for colours, your choices are silver, black or gold – so one of those should fit in with your own personal fashion brand.

With the latest A12 Bionic processor from Apple on board – providing a speed boost of 15 percent on the CPU and 50 percent on the GPU, apparently – all your iOS 12 apps should scoot along rather nicely. Apple says apps should launch around 30 percent faster.

As for the camera around the back of the iPhone XS Max, Apple says there's a new and improved sensor inside the 12MP + 12MP for better-than-ever photos. Image processing on the upgraded A12 processor should improve snaps as well, according to Apple.

We're still digesting all the news from the Apple September 2018 event, but it seems clear that if you want the biggest and most powerful iPhone from the 2018 range, then the iPhone XS Max is the handset to go for.

Apple says it will even last 90 minutes longer than the iPhone X between charges.

The iPhone XS Max can be ordered from this Friday, 14 September, with orders shipping from 21 September. Pricing in the US starts at $1,099, with international pricing to be confirmed.
