IPhone XS, XS Max: Cost breakdown for USA carriers

The iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR all share the iPhone X's all-screen design and FaceID security features, and the Apple Watch Series 4 bundles a larger display with more advanced health-focused features.

All three models are coming to carriers including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, and Xfinity Mobile.

The introduction of the iPhone XS and XR also sees off the original X, SE, and iPhone 6, which are no longer available directly from Apple. Dubbed the iPhone XR, the new model sits in between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in size, and features a 6.1-inch advanced LCD screen that the company is calling its "Liquid Retina" display.

Apple may be the big dogs in Australia but worldwide they only make up around 13% of the smartphone market with Huawei ahead of them in second position. While there are some compromises compared to the iPhone XS - which showed during our brief hands-on time with the phone - the XR's strong core hardware specs and more everyday price signal the sea change in Apple's strategy.

The iPhone XS is $999 for 64 GB, $1,149 for 256 GB, and $1,349 for 512 GB. It has the same upgraded technology as the iPhone XS phones, and you can take Bokeh portrait shots with the help of software. People storing albums upon albums of home movies will prefer the 512GB option that the iPhone XS and XS Max offer.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max go on sale September 21.

Apple's removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack has been considered a controversial and user-hostile decision beginning with the iPhone 7, so it's no surprise the latest devices are also missing the port.

Pre-orders for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are going to be live tomorrow, but what we have is an early glimpse of how thee devices might perform when they are officially released by the company.
