Apple shows off iPhone XS

Technology       by Nozair Hanif Mirza | Published

The range now starts with the iPhone 7 and is followed by the iPhone 8 and the new iPhone XS as well as iPhone XR models.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, released in 2015, have seen a price drop as well.

iPhone XS and XS Max will be available for pre-orders starting at 3:01 pm on September 14, Friday. This time, Apple won't ship any 3.5mm to lightning dongle align with the device.

Interestingly enough, the website has removed the prices for models like iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE. Now, the chances of that happening seem much slimmer.

Arguably the most notable new product: the iPhone Xr delivers iPhone X style with a price cut and some caveats.


The decision is likely to alienate some holdouts who still use the old school wired headphones offered by Apple over the years and haven't yet embraced the lightning cable.

A dongle is a device used to connect a pair of headphones into a new Apple device, as any pair of non-Apple headphones don't fit. The iPhone 7 now costs Rs 39,900 for the 32GB variant and Rs 49,900 for the 128GB variant while the iPhone 7 Plus now sells for Rs 39,900 for the 32GB variant and Rs 49,900 for the 128GB variant.

Therefore, if you were in love with the smaller 4-inch compact form factor or don't want to part with the headphone jack on an iPhone, you can try your luck with the SE and 6S till stocks last. Schiller did not that due to the limitations on eSIM availability in China, Apple will be releasing special models of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in China that provide support for two physical SIM cards in a single slot - one on each side of the SIM tray.

None of Apple's new iPhones feature a home button, which could mean that technology is on its way out.

More and more smartphones feature edge-to-edge screen designs that get rid of the physical button, relying instead on gesture-based controls to navigate.
