Apple has unveiled its latest batch of products - which includes the largest iPhone screen it's ever made as well as the new Apple Watch.

But it's not the features that grabbed attention last night.

"The biggest buzz I'm seeing is definitely on prices," said Melissa Jun Rowley, co-founder of Resolve, which helps tech startups to grow.

The XS Max will become the most expensive handset Apple has sold to date, with its price ranging from £1,099 to £1,449 depending on its amount of storage.

Ms Rowley says that many customers are struggling to see the differences between last year's phones and this year's.
