Apple launches the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

Apple launches the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

While its removal can be seen as penny pinching (and with Apple you never know), the actual use that adapter got is of suspect, considering most people just use the bundled EarPods or possibly get the AirPods.

CEO Tim Cook showed off the Apple XS, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,000. The big display will use traditional, lower-cost LCD technology, but look more like last year's iPhone X than the iPhone 8, which itself looked similar to phones going back to 2014's iPhone 6.

Likely to be called the iPhone XR, it could be priced even as low as $700 with a display size of 6.1 inches.

The iPhone Xr will come in six colors on top of a 7000-series aluminum finish ranging from blue to gold to black, white and red.

"While the iPhone XS has a 5.8" super retina display, the XS Max is 6.5" super retina display.

"With the new iPhone X line-up and its pricing repositioning, Apple demonstrates once again it excels at extending the lifecycle of its product portfolio through incremental innovation, impressive technical specifications boosting the performance of its devices and smart marketing", said Forrester analyst Thomas Husson.

Apple Watch Series 4 is priced at $399 for the GPS version and $499 for the GPS + Cellular model.




Apple has confirmed that the iPhone XR will start at £749 for the 64GB model.

The California tech darling unveiled its iPhone XS, larger-than-ever XS Max and its new budget XR on Wednesday, focusing on improvements under the hood.

Focusing specifically on T-Mobile, it's been confirmed that both the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will include 600MHz LTE support, making them the first iPhones to have that feature.

The XR sports Face ID support, and while it lacks 3D touch, it will sport a new Haptic Touch feature that will allow you to open select apps right from the home screen with a long press. The iPhone Xr on the other hand has a single 12MP wide-angle lens on the rear.

The popular company excitingly announced the new products along with other impressive products at their annual press event on September 12, which took place in the Steve Jobs Theater at the company's Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, CA.

While it is the market leader, the Apple Watch still doesn't sell in high enough quantities for Apple to break out individual unit sales like it does for Macs, iPads, and iPhones. One way to do that is to get people to buy more expensive phones. The Apple A12 Bionic chipset is also on this device. The phone promises 90 more minutes of battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus. The new iPhones are available for pre-order starting Friday and will be in Apple stores (cue the line-ups) starting September 21.
