3 new iPhones Xs, Xs Max & Xr and launched at Apple event

Marion JacobsSep 15, 2018

Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB capacity models in space grey, silver and a new gold finish starting at Rs 99,900 and Rs 109,900, respectively, through Apple Authorised Resellers. On the camera front, the XR features a single 12-megapixel wide-angle camera on the rear, with the same specifications as the XS.

With these features contributing to the lower price point on the Xr, the Xr does boast the same A12 Bionic chip found on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, while battery life is noted to be one and a half hours more per day than the iPhone 8 Plus.

As with the iPhone X, this larger phone would have a screen that runs from edge to edge, in an effort to maximize the display without making the phone too awkward to hold.

The biggest difference between the XR and the XS is the display - instead of an OLED panel, the XR is relying on an LCD panel. One other perk: The iPhone XR will be available in a variety of colors including black, red, white, blue, coral and yellow.

Apple didn't immediately say how much the Max will cost, but it's expected to top the iPhone X's $1,000 starting price. Apparently, the large, iPhone Xs Max model will also be the heaviest yet at 7.34 ounce (208 grams).

However, it features the same power and costs €300 less than the flagship iPhone XS Max.

Both iPhone Xs and Xs Max will be have iOS 12 operating system which is the most advanced in the world at present. iOS 12 will allow iPhone users to have more options with Animoji and Memoji.

IPhone XS: A cheat sheet for professionals
The gathering will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park Campus in Cupertino starting at 10:00 a.m. The company has remained coy about the release date, specs, pricing and just about everything else.

Both the iPhone XS and XS Max are available in three storage variants.

Apple also showed off a cheaper iPhone, called the iPhone XR. This iPhone has an LCD display as opposed to the OLED in the more expensive iPhones. The depth of field can be adjusted by users in the Photos app, and Portrait Mode bokeh has also been improved.

So, that appears to be a nail in the coffin for the rumoured "iPhone XS Plus" and "iPhone XC" names, then, which were widely rumoured to be the monikers of the gadgets.

Late a year ago Apple was hit with a massive iPhone slowdown scandal that seemed to confirm the conspiracy theory that Apple intentionally slows down older iPhone to force users to upgrade.

Though the new model doesn't feature 3D Touch, Apple has packed in an alternative called Haptic Touch, which provides haptic feedback when the user presses on the display.

Like the previous Apple Watch, battery life is claimed to be 18 hours, but a charge should last longer for workouts and running than before: 6 hours with Global Positioning System.
