The New $1,449 iPhone Won't Include A Free Headphone Dongle

The New $1,449 iPhone Won't Include A Free Headphone Dongle”

The iPhone XR, which will be released in October, is the least expensive of the three new iPhones.

New iPhone XS Max caseThe new Moment Photo Cases for iPhone XS, XR and XS Max Photo: Moment If you got your eye on the iPhone XS, the new case should work with it. The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display, A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup.

Screen technology: The 6.1-inch screen is just fine on its own, but it has a much lower screen resolution than either iPhone XS and uses an LCD display instead of OLED.

Gareth does note though that the camera system also supports Smart HDR, which allows the iPhone XR to "really capture the high-end elements of a photo, fusing the light and dark elements well", and that the pictures he took were clear, sharp and colourful.

So why bother discontinuing the iPhone X, its most significant phone upgrade in years? However, you can still launch the camera app and flashlight from the lock screen and feel some haptic vibration when you do. The company said the new iPhones would start at USD 750, USD 1,000 and USD 1,100. iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, September 14 and in stores beginning Friday, September 21.

'The iPhone Xs Max price reflects the name.,' one user tweeted. Apple gave us cryptic guidance like "it lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus". Most surprisingly, despite including only a single wide-angle lens, Apple has managed to bring Portrait Mode to the iPhone XR by using the A12 ISP and Neural Engine to create depth segmentation maps.

The XR is also the first iPhone in years to be sold in a variety of colors, including red, coral, yellow and blue.

Price (duh): The iPhone XR isn't cheap, but it's not a $1,000 phone, either. If you're an iPhone 6s devotee, you can still buy the devices through your carrier, or find refurbished versions online.
