Apple CEO's Defense Of iPhone Pricing Raises Questions

  • Xiaomi mocks Apple with Mi 8 mega bundle that costs the same as an iPhone XS Max

Apple, contrary to a variety of rumors prior to this year's release, did not drop prices on its flagship iPhone XS model.

Apple used in the iPhone Xs Max new chip A12 Bionic, which, according to tradition, was called the most powerful of smartphones, but this time it's not so far from the truth.

If you head over to Xiaomi China's official store (via XDA-Developers) you'll see three new bundles unsubtly named the XS, XS Max, and XR sets. Same goes for the larger Xs Max, and cheaper Xr.

"Apps like Slack, Gmail, and Twitter show you the exact same amount of information as the smaller XS", he said, adding: "I just wish I had the option to up the information density on the XS Max just a little".

The iPhone XS Max accompanied the iPhone XS, which was a direct replacement to the iPhone X but offers a larger display in the body no bigger than the iPhone 8 Plus.

The XR will be out on 26 October. With prices starting at $749, $999 and $1,099, has Apple convinced you that one of its new models will be your next smartphone? And while it might be tough to tell an iPhone X photo and an iPhone XS photo apart at first glance, they're still subtle yet noticeable improvements in bad lighting and capturing fine details.

The handset's own manufacturer may have underestimated its potential, with iPhone XR component orders reportedly revised upward for the next few months.

As of now, you can no longer buy an iPhone SE directly from Apple.

You can even get as granular as changing up the color scheme, for an as-close-to-real view of what that new gold finish looks like or what shade of blue the XR comes in.

If you live in the United States, the four major USA wireless carriers are offering deals on older generation iPhones that include not only the iPhone X, 6s, and SE - but also the iPhone 6s Plus.

This is because the iPhone would have to be running iOS in a full capacity to use Face ID to allow such functionality to take place.

It's the less expensive (though still very expensive at $750) version of the new model of iPhone.

Apple is breathing a sight of relief after its most important products avoided being added to a list of Chinese-produced products that will be subject to a new series of tariffs imposed by US President Donald Trump.
