IPhone XS, XS Max: Cost breakdown for US carriers

As always, you could spend more to get more storage, but less than $800 got you Apple's latest and greatest smartphone - significantly less if you didn't want a giant screen. The phone was positioned as the bleeding edge, beyond what you got from a standard flagship iPhone in terms of design.

Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19). "Background reading will work with any NDEF formatted tag", according to the Apple developer portal. It does a lot of things, certainly: delivers notifications, tracks fitness, makes phone calls, helps you pay for stuff and lots more besides.

At a packed event yesterday Apple introduced three new iPhones and a re-designed Watch Series 4 so there's plenty to digest. Third-party developers are expected to take advantage of this addition and possibly add creative solutions to their apps and website experience on the iPhone.

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.

In India, the iPhone XR, the budget version of the new iPhones, starts at a price of Rs 76,900. Further, the rear wide-angle lens, True Tone flash, and True Depth camera on the iPhone XR are identical to those found on the iPhone XS, so the only difference from a photography point of view appears to be the lack of the second telephoto lens.

Since both the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max have same specs, it means both of them feature 4GB of RAM. They come in gold, silver, and space gray. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, will sell at Rs 69,900 for the 64GB variant and Rs ₹84,900 for the 256GB variant.

Many believed that Apple was set to release a refreshed iPhone SE 2, as it looks to reach more low-end consumers and break into developing markets.
