The iPhone XS Max, which Apple unveiled Wednesday in Cupertino, Calif., is the biggest ever, with with a 6.5-inch screen.
Also introduced Friday was the iPhone XS, which, despite a relatively puny 5.8-inch screen, will retail for $1,000, writes the Silicon Valley Business Journal staff at bizjournals.com.
Both phones will be available Sept. 21. A new entry-level phone called the iPhone XR, made of aluminum and priced at $759, will go on sale in October.
