Apple Inc unveiled larger iPhones and watches based on the design of current models on Wednesday, confirming expectations that the company is making only minor changes to its lineup.

Apple wants users to upgrade to newer, more expensive devices as a way to boost revenue as global demand for smartphones levels off. The strategy has helped Apple become the first publicly-traded US company to hit a market value of more than $1 trillion earlier this year.

Apple shares were down 0.9 percent on Nasdaq.

The new phones, based on last year's iPhone X, are named XS and XS Max, based on last year's iPhone X. The new iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch screen size, while iPhone XS Max is 6.5 inch in size, in line with Wall Street expectations.

Apple uses the 'S' suffix when it upgrades components but leaves the exterior of a phone the same. Last year's iPhone X - pronounced "ten" - represented a major redesign.

Apple opened its event by saying its new Apple Watch Series 4 range will have edge-to-edge displays, like its latest phones, which are more than 30 percent bigger than displays on current models. The new watch, positioned as a more comprehensive health device, will be able to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers.

Shares of fitness device rival Fitbit Inc fell about 3.7 percent after the Series 4 introduction. Shares of Garmin Ltd lost some earlier gains and were flat in midday New York trade.

Shares of optical components makers Lumentum Holdings Inc and Finisar Corp, suppliers that power iPhone X's Face ID feature and the TrueDepth camera technology, were down 1.6 percent and 0.4 percent in afternoon trading.

Executives made the announcement at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's new circular headquarters in Cupertino, California, named after the company's co-founder who wowed the world with the first iPhone in 2007.

"There's no real game-changer on the table," said Hal Eddins, chief economist at Apple shareholder Capital Investment Counsel. "It's a matter of getting people to keep moving up."

The company is also expected to unveil a new version of its wireless AirPods earbuds with wireless charging and a wireless mat that will be able to charge several devices at once.

Extinction

Mobile phones are another force driving us towards extinction. I have noted that there has been a 90% drop in my sighting on birds in a little wooded reserve which I have been visiting regularly for 8 years. There was an abrupt drop after a phone tower was upgraded two and a half years ago. The media until 2012 was allowed to report the 30% drop in bee populations.Effects on human health are now forbidden topics for the media.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!
