The biggest announcements from Apple's iPhone Xs event

Apple is a $1.1 trillion company for a reason.

Lost in the fray of Apple's big hardware event was the announcement that it would no longer include a dongle, free of charge, with the purchase of a new iPhone.

New iPhone XS Max caseThe new Moment Photo Cases for iPhone XS, XR and XS Max Photo: Moment If you got your eye on the iPhone XS, the new case should work with it.

Moment - makers of some of the finest iPhone camera lens attachments you can buy - is out with a new case that adds a physical camera shutter button to your iPhone X. It also packs enough juice to recharge your iPhone and it doesn't even need a wire. Its normal route is to dock the price of previous year's models by $100 and continue selling them, which is what it did for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 this year.

That being said, on its own he notes it "could be mistaken for the iPhone X of last year".

The phone has a single 12MP rear sensor, rather than the two on the XS and XS Max, while the front comes installed with a TrueDepth camera for facial unlocking and selfies.

T3 will imminently be reviewing the iPhone XS in full, so be sure to check back in soon for our official verdict. According to the reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple paid $120 to $130 per screen unit, about twice as much as it normally pays for screens. Models ranging from the iPhone SE to the iPhone X will see a price hike, going from $29 up to $49 for all models but the iPhone X, which will go up to $69. Both factors that should conserve energy in comparison.

Price (duh): The iPhone XR isn't cheap, but it's not a $1,000 phone, either. Why pay $999 for the incredible screen on the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max when you could effectively buy the same phone for $100 less?

For any iPhone X owners anxious about whether the discontinuation will dent the resale value of their phone, the Forrester analyst Thomas Husson has some reassuring words.
