The design also confirms what we saw a couple of weeks ago, with a slightly redesigned rotating crown and side button, as well as a new microphone placement.
The Apple-designed A12 Bionic, the smartest and most powerful chip in a smartphone, features the first 7-nanometer chip ever in a smartphone that delivers industry-leading performance in a more power-efficient design.
Apple also introduced a fourth generation of Apple Watch with a major redesign - and a series of features created to improve its performance as a medical and health device. Apple uses the "S" suffix when it upgrades components but leaves the exterior of a phone largely the same. Rather it offers a haptic feedback experience to mimic 3D Touch.
Are people mad about it?
Apple says the heart data can be shared with doctors, though it's not yet clear how ready doctors are to getting all that.

And the XR model is the cheapest at $1,229 for the 64GB and $1,479 for the 512GB model.
Apple aficionados in the Middle East will not have long to wait before they get their hands on what the company are calling the "most handsome and advanced" iPhones.
