How Apple got us to pay so much for the iPhone

How Apple got us to pay so much for the iPhone

"Including older-generation iPhones, total shipments of iPhone devices are expected to top 127 million units in the second half of 2018, representing modest growth from a year earlier". In addition, now the iPhone camera XS uses a direct processor for photo processing and neural network to achieve best quality pictures. This is also its first "Max" size phone with a 6.5-inch screen, but it remains to be seen if iOS 12 gets acclimatised to such a big change. The two devices use OLED, which was something that had been rumored for months.

"I have to make a choice between making an upgrade to the only phone that fits my hand before they discontinue it - soon there will be no iPhone that fits the average woman's hand size - even though the technology is two years out of date", she said.

Best Buy offers up to a $275 Best Buy gift card with qualifying trade-in of iPhone 7 and newer models. Since Jobs passed in 2011, there is no way of knowing what might have happened had he continued to steer the company over the last seven years. Recent reports had mentioned that Apple would be launching a much bigger device and they were right. And now that we've examined the devices themselves in detail it's time to focus on what they mean for the market. It'll start at $750; lower than the $999 price of the higher-end iPhone XS.

Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS are already up for pre-orders.

Apple iPhone XR comes in three storage variants of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Let us know, would you be interested in upgrading from iPhone X to iPhone XS.

This year's iPhone XS lasts 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X, so expect 12.5 to 13.5 hours.

Many think that the iPhone 5s was the pinnacle of the iPhone design so the iPhone SE was a nice surprise to those looking for small screen on a budget. The display on the new iPhone XS additionally supports 120Hz touch-sensing and its not same as a 120Hz display.

The new record was iPhone XS Max. It offers a similar design as the more expensive XS models, albeit in an aluminium and glass combination (not stainless steel) and offers a lot of the same features at three-quarters of the price.

Unlike the iPhone XS series, the iPhone XR features a LCD display. Its lower resolution allows it to have a greater autonomy of nearly 3 hours compared to the XS.

The low price means that the XR does not come with some of the big features found on its big brothers.

The new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come with IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.

The iPhone XR starts at $749 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $899 for 256 GB of storage.
