Apple iPhone XS Max - Hands On

Apple iPhone XS Max - Hands On

Battery replacement for an out-of-warranty iPhone in the X line - which includes the original 2017 iPhone X - will cost $69 next year, the site noted after Wednesday's unveiling of the newest iPhones. Not anymore. Apple's new iPhone Xs Max has a much bigger screen than the iPhone X, and all the same top-shelf features.

Predictably, folks on Twitter did not greet the news favorably.

It also means that Apple no longer sells any phones with 3.5mm headphone jacks.

That may be because the new iPhone XS has the same starter price, meaning Apple would have to offer the iPhone X at a discount.

The pricey iPhones disturbed fans so much so, that Apple stocks started plummeting after the launch event. Want a cheaper iPhone? Apple is also opening up the Neural Engine's capabilities to developers through Core ML, which is also gaining a performance boost of up to nine times while running with as little as one tenth of the energy of the A11's Neural Engine.

Apple also introduced a lower-cost 6.1-inch (15.5 cm) iPhone XR made of aluminum, at a starting price at $749, and will be available in the USA from October 26.

When Apple released the iPhone X past year, it was widely considered to be the best smartphone the company had ever made, marking a major step forward with features like Face ID and a high-end camera to rival the Huawei P20 Pro and Google Pixel 2.

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.

Apple has been working to ramp up revenue from services and digital content such as music and movies, but most of the cash it takes in comes from iPhone sales.
