IPhone Xs Max, iPhone XR Geekbench Scores Blow Away the Competition

Yes, technically you can still buy a "new" iPhone 7 from Apple, and with a new starting price of £450, it's not all that expensive.

Let's not forget the iPhone XR, which Apple claims has the "best LCD on a phone".

The features in Apple's Watch 4, pricing for which starts at $399, include everything from the ability to do an electrocardiogram on yourself to a sensor that detects hard falls and even automatically calls 911.

Those reasons? The fact that Apple has likely put less RAM in to the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and the screen resolution is likely going to be less, too. "Background reading will work with any NDEF formatted tag", according to the Apple developer portal.

There aren't many options for screen size on the Apple Watch -but there are an very bad lot of different-sized wrists. 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.

The Apple Special Event held September 12th did not mention a successor to the iPhone SE, and instead, let go of the original SE altogether. People storing albums upon albums of home movies will prefer the 512GB option that the iPhone XS and XS Max offer.

Three new iPhones are heading our way: the XS, XS Max, and the XR.

Here are all the Apple devices that have received price cut after iPhone XR and iPhone XS launch. You can pick from in silver, space grey, and a new polished gold color.

iPhone 8 64GB which was earlier priced at Rs 67,940 is now available at a lower price of Rs 59,900.

To make way for the brand new iPhone Xr, Xs and Xs Max, Apple has discontinued the iPhone SE, 6S/6S Plus and even the 10th anniversary 'X, ' which only debuted last September. 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's pricing is "below expectation" and "effectively obsoletes" the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus units as "most consumers would opt for the iPhone XR in both cases", Goldman's analysts noted.
