So without further ado, let's dive right into the good stuff!
When the iPhone SE came out in the spring of 2016, it was a big deal because, even though the phone wasn't particularly innovative, the idea of a new, purpose-built midrange device from Apple that started at just £350 was more than a welcome idea. Now these users have options, with the iPhone Xs Max having a larger screen and the iPhone Xr costing less. Now, the latest alleged Geekbench scores show two devices with varying amounts of RAM running the latest SoC with the scores and other details highlighted. Well, we've heard these claims before to be honest.
Colorful identity: If you want your iPhone XS to be any color than gold, silver or black-grey, you'll have to buy a case.
Apple also announced the iPhone XR during the event. This was the reason Apple went for a cheaper LCD panel and a single camera for the iPhone XR.
While Apple unveiled the three successors to previous year's iPhone X, its previous generation smartphones - iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus - have all received price cuts in typical Apple fashion.
The newest iPhones will result in no major change in sales volumes in the mature smartphone market, SMBC Nikko analysts wrote in a report following Apple's presentation.
That being said, on its own he notes it "could be mistaken for the iPhone X of last year".
The Xs Max gains a slight advantage in sound over its smaller sibling, and that's a wider stereo sound. The earphones are now rendered in yellow, blue, and coral to coordinate with the iPhone Xr, and it's scheduled to release later this Fall.
Of course, a newer iPhone, a faster and more secure biometric experience.
Many believed that Apple was set to release a refreshed iPhone SE 2, as it looks to reach more low-end consumers.
Apple took to the stage yesterday to unveil its brand new lineup of iPhones. The A12 is the first 7nm chip in the industry, and boasts a 15% increase in performance over the A11, with the A12 GPU gaining an increase of over 50% over the A11's GPU. "Battery service at $29 may be limited to one fix per iPhone".
So the news that Apple is no longer giving a free one to customers with new phones will not be received too well, as it means that you will have to buy one of these, on top of an extremely expensive phone, and a pricy pair of headphones too. Apple's new iPhones start at $749 with the iPhone XR, regarded as the new standard-issue iPhone, and rise to a thousand dollars with the iPhone XS and $1099 with the XS Max.
