Will my old iPhone X case fit the new iPhone XS?

Will my old iPhone X case fit the new iPhone XS?

The iPhone XR also includes the same A12 Bionic SoC as its more expensive siblings, so as with last year's iPhone 8 and iPhone X models, performance between the XR and XS models should be the same, and the XR will also gain support for most of the advanced features found in the XS, including faster Face ID and image capture and AR improvements. People storing albums upon albums of home movies will prefer the 512GB option that the iPhone XS and XS Max offer.

"The Apple Watch continues to improve and provide additional relevant functions".

Similarly, battery replacement for the freshly-announced iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR will cost $69 once those phones lose their warranties beginning next year.

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.

One compelling theory is its price.

Still, this year's iPhone XS renders the iPhone X redundant - it has a almost identical design, with improved specs, at the same starting price point of $US999. It has most of the features - all-screen display, Face ID - that made the iPhone X popular, but it comes in at $749, $250 cheaper than what the iPhone X launched at previous year.

Jeff Bezos launches $2-billion fund to help homeless families, build preschools
On Thursday, Jeff Bezos of Amazon tweeted his plan to commit $2 billion to what he's calling the Bezos Day One Fund, CNBC reports. Amazon is designating 47,000 square feet of space at its new corporate office for a permanent Mary's Place shelter.


Throughout 2018, Apple has been offering out-of-warranty battery replacements at a discount for some iPhone models.

Single rear camera lens instead of two: This is a big one. According to the reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple paid $120 to $130 per screen unit, about twice as much as it normally pays for screens.

Both of these factors might explain Apple's thinking. The XR has a 6.1-inch screen, which lands it right between the XS and XS Max in terms of size.

Plus, the new iPhones already come at a steep price.

Throughout 2018, the company is running a $29 battery replacement program, but this ends December 31. iPhone X users stand to save the most, since their replacement cost will jump from $29 to $69 next year.

"When it's all said and done, I think it's the key for the cycle", Zino said.
