Apple's greatest magic trick: A $749 iPhone is now "cheap"

Apple's greatest magic trick: A $749 iPhone is now

The next one is about the new Apple Watch Series 4.

That being said, on its own he notes it "could be mistaken for the iPhone X of last year".

In other words, Apple isn't treating the iPhone XR as some shabby relation.

Yesterday, as all the leaks foretold, Apple released three new iPhones.

These smartphones are also running iOS 12, but iOS 12 has not officially launched right now, so it could be the developer's preview installed on the iPhone 8 Plus.

With these changes astir, now might be the ideal time to pick up a discontinued iPhone before it falls out of circulation, especially if you're after a model with a headphone jack. It has the same upgraded technology as the iPhone XS phones, and you can take Bokeh portrait shots with the help of software.

Apple iPhone XS, XS Max and XR announcement coverage wrap-up
Apple on Wednesday announced that they had stopped selling the iPhone 6 series and Android users won't let iPhone lovers be. Here are all the Apple devices that have received price cut after iPhone XR and iPhone XS launch.


Exports of Swiss watches in the entry-price segment - a retail price of up to around $500 - have steadily declined over the past years, with competition from smartwatches one of the factors responsible.

Lost in the fray of Apple's big hardware event was the announcement that it would no longer include a dongle, free of charge, with the purchase of a new iPhone.

The starting price of the new iPhone XS, the successor to the iPhone X, is the same as the iPhone X's: $US999. Both boast a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera.

The Xr will come in a whopping six colors: white, black, blue, coral and yellow (in addition to a Product Red version). Let us know your views in the comment section below! Traditionally, Apple hasn't raised the price of its standard iPhone by $50 every single year, so this kind of price increase is the kind of thing that would normally (and should) be getting attention.

Those reasons? The fact that Apple has likely put less RAM in to the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and the screen resolution is likely going to be less, too.

Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19). "I don't think [discontinuation] will impact its resale value".
