New iPhones worth the cost: Tim Cook

Posted September 21, 2018

Apple recently launched its next generation iPhones - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

The information comes from Digitimes, a sometimes-accurate source of information on the supply side of consumer electronics. A day that should be marked on your calendars, because the brand new iPhones can also be pre-ordered from tomorrow, 21 September (aside from the "cheaper" iPhone XR, which we don't have a release date for yet). They also found that new smartphones technology support QAM and License Assisted Access, which was not in the iPhone X.

iPhone XR to be better than iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max?

South Korean student Teddy Lee and YouTuber Mazen Kourouche walk out with two of the first iPhone XS handsets sold in the world in Sydney, Australia. It's not a big surprise as the iPhone features the same screen size and dimensions as the iPhone X. That said, it would be interesting to see how Apple has setup the internals on the iPhone XS Max, given its bigger chassis. Durable protective case made of aerospace titanium Alter Ego for iPhone XS and XS Max was more expensive flagships and will cost the owners of "Apple" technology in 2762 United States dollar.

After so much offseason speculation about what form Pettine's defense would take, the Packers' new coordinator didn't disappoint. The Packers picked up one first down on their opening drive and then were forced to punt.

In a move that might help offset the pricing somewhat, iStore said it will offer a two-year extended warranty, which includes one Apple-certified screen fix, for free. On Etisalat's website, their iPhone XS payment plan starts at Dh185 per month payable in two years. Apple claims the XS can last up to 30 minutes longer than the X, though, and that's likely due to the more efficient 7nm A12 chipset on board. The introductory price of the XR will be at $749.

This, in turn, gave Apple an incredibly diverse iPhone lineup: As of a year ago, Apple's iPhone lineup featured models priced from $350 all the way to $1,149, giving customers a wide range of options to choose from.

The iPhone XS retails for $1,649 (64GB), $1,889 (256GB) and $2,199 (512GB), while the iPhone XS Max retails for $1,799 (64GB), $2,039 (256GB) and $2,349 (512GB). But that's for a phone priced at $699, well below either the iPhone XS Max or the $999 iPhone XS.

If you recall, the iPhone X from a year ago had a 2,716mAh battery which is slightly bigger than what the XS packs. With the new iPhones, you can use the NFC chip even when you have run out of battery.
