Larger iPhones revealed: Dual SIM XS, XS Max in new gold, 512GB

Marion JacobsSep 13, 2018

Apple touts that the iPhone Xs Max is about the same size of the iPhone 8 Plus, it has a screen that's 1-inch larger diagonally.

The cameras on the phones are, as usual, "better than ever before", said Apple exec Phil Schiller, who has uttered the same words at previous events.

None of the actual pages for these products are (or were) live on the official Apple website.

As expected, Apple revealed several new iterations of the iPhone during its Keynote 2018 address.

In addition to the new XS and XS MAX, Apple has also announced the new iPhone XR, the latest budget iPhone that still packs a mean punch.

The iPhone XS and XS Max will be available to pre-order on Friday, September 14 and ship Friday, September 21 in the United States and other countries. While the resolution, sadly, remains the same as last year's offerings, photos taken with the new phones will apparently have the potential to come out clearer due to the devices' speed.

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

Battery life has been improved on Apple's new iPhones, too. It also features a king-size price of $1,099.

What Sheryl Sandberg will tell Congress about Facebook and Russian Federation
" Google and Twitter and Facebook , they're really treading on very, very troubled territory and they have to be careful". Google, which was also invited to the hearing, did not send a representative.

"Furthermore, those same files point to a range of new color options for the iPhone Xr", writes Gizmodo.

While the new phones' camera are getting some minor hardware improvements, beefed-up processors mean the phone can take multiple exposures at once and merge them together into the flawless shot, said Schiller.

These cases were available in colors like White, Midnight Blue, Product Red, Taupe, Black, and Stone. "The device has been rumored to be a slightly "cheaper" alternative to the iPhone Xs and its expected $1,000 price tag".

You'll be able to pre-order the iPhone XR beginning Friday, October 19, and it will hit stores on Friday, October 26, in more than 50 countries.

Apple also showed off an upgrade to its 3-year-old smartwatch. The most visible feature in Mojave is the new Dark Mode, which is really fantastic, but there are a bunch of other new features like desktop stacks, dynamic desktop, screenshot and recording tools, and a ton of other features.

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.

More importantly, T-Mobile has already spent a huge amount of money acquiring and building out its 600MHz spectrum, and all of that will be wasted if the most popular smartphones don't support it. Apple snubbed T-Mobile and band 71 with last year's iPhones, and there was some concern that the same thing would happen next year.
