Apple iPhone Xs: The Complete Rundown

Apple iPhone Xs: The Complete Rundown

The iPhone XS is even more expensive with the 64GB phone starting at $1,379, and the 246GB and 512GB versions priced at $1,589 and $1,859 respectively.

Apple unveiled three new versions of the iPhone today, with some new capabilities under the hood and some fun apps and games that will move the smartphone wars ahead another step.

The popular company excitingly announced the new products along with other impressive products at their annual press event on September 12, which took place in the Steve Jobs Theater at the company's Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, CA.

On Wednesday, September 12, Apple is going to host its latest event, where it is expected the company will unveil a variety of new hardware products, updating several different lineups in 2018.

People will be able to buy the Apple Watch Series 4 with Global Positioning System for $399 while the version with cellular connectivity will cost $499.

The new top model is expected to have a 6.5-inch (16.5-cm) screen with an edge-to-edge display and be called the iPhone X Plus or Max. Improved true-tone flash, 12 MP telephoto camera, 7 megapixel rear camera. While the resolution, sadly, remains the same as last year's offerings, photos taken with the new phones will apparently have the potential to come out clearer due to the devices' speed. But indeed, it's not an iPhone 8 Plus. The back of the phone is also glass, which allows for wireless charging.

The iPhone XR goes up for pre-order on Friday, September 14. The new iPhones also support LTE-Advanced technology, including 4×4 MIMO and LAA. The iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr are now all official, bringing incremental upgrades over last year's iPhone X and continuing the trend of higher smartphone prices.

Called iPhone XS, it is made of surgical steel. This "economical" model will start at $799, and is much like the iPhone 5Cseries that came out years ago.

Inside the new iPhone models is an updated Apple A12 Bionic processor. The XS Max has the largest display on any iPhone yet at 6.5-inches-even the massive Galaxy Note 9 is just 6.4-inches.

You should see around 90 minutes of additional battery life compared to the iPhone 8 Plus.

While the 6.1-inch display seems large, with the reduced bezels above and below the display the phone will be slightly smaller than a traditional "Plus" iPhone and only slightly larger than the 5.8-inch iPhone XS. Expectations for Apple's lineup have been fueled by reports from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is based in Taiwan, where numerous contract manufactures that also make Apple products are based. However, the product has buoyed revenue from Apple's "Other Products" segment, which also includes the Apple TV, HomePod, and AirPods.
