Apple halts the production of iPhone X, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE

As Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max pre-orders have begun in the U.S. now, after the phones were revealed globally on September 12.

Battery life is also a bit improved on the XS.

With two of them starting at $999 or higher in the United States, Apple appears to be taking advantage of a strong U.S. economy, low unemployment, and rising household wealth. Priced at $999 and $1099, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are dubbed as the most advanced phone ever designed by the American tech giant. You don't really own your device. Both series features a dual lens 12MP system with wide-angle and telephoto cameras, dual optical image stabilisation, 2x optical zoom, and 4K video recording.

What's impressive is how shockingly light the phone feels for a device with that much screen. In the previous years, some iPhone models have quickly sold out in less than 10 minutes. If you're hoping for a new phone, but not sure how you can justify it in your budget, the Times has some good ideas about saving on an upgrade. India availability is yet to be announced, though I fully expect it should be in time for the festive season up ahead. Believe me, this version will be enough to spark the requisite amount of envy in current Series 3 owners.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will have 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB configurations while the iPhone XR will have 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage.

The removal of the iPhone SE also isn't terribly surprising, as Apple is billing the iPhone Xr as its "budget" device (no matter it still carries a $749 price tag), plus it offers the iPhone 7 for $449.

As far s the CPU is concerned, the new XS has a better processor than the iPhone X. The XS features the A12 Bionic chipset-and upgrade over the X's A11 Bionic. Of course, the prices really get insane if you're keen on maxing out your storage, with the 512GB model of the iPhone Xs Max boasting a jaw-dropping sticker price of $1,449. Its six color options (red, yellow, white, coral, black, and blue) remind us of the iPhone 5C.

According to a 2015 study published in Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference, the average man's hand is one inch larger than a woman's. The iPhone X of a year ago has been completely discontinued. Moreover, Apple's Online Store said that the 6.5-inch model for Verizon and AT&T wouldn't be available for delivery until October.
