The company may also announce a new smartwatch.

Apple unveiled three new iPhones, including two with bigger displays, but perhaps the more dramatic announcement from Cupertino, Calif., on Wednesday was its new Apple Watch, with the new health-related tools.

The company is leaving behind the great, albeit exhausted iPhone 6 design and moving to a lineup that completely adopts the iPhone X design with its edge-to-edge screen. The front facing snapper of the iPhones promises more depth in portrait images. Last year's iPhone X - pronounced "ten" - represented a major redesign.

If you're unsure what new features are arriving on your device next week here's a brief guide on what to expect.

In most ways, this year's iPhones look like last year's iPhone X. There's no home button on any of them - love it or hate it, Apple is putting the fingerprint reader permanently out to pasture.

The third model will be iPhone Xr. While we still don't know what the R stands for (Regular, Rookie, Rad?), it's obvious this is the iPhone for Apple fans with a smaller budget, with a design that isn't quite as flashy, a single 12-megapixel camera and a 6.1in LCD display. This one will have a 6.1” screen and its storage options are 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Both models feature Super Retina displays, OLED screens, a "faster and improved" dual camera system.

The rest of the internals on this smartphone are nearly the same, this smartphone is also being powered by a A12 Bionic chip. The XR will come in black, white, red, yellow, coral, and blue colors.
