Apple during its iPhone event said that the iPhone XR offers the longest battery life out of all the three new iPhones and that it lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus.

Apple launched the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max last week.

In terms of CPU performance the world's first at-scale 7nm architecture has paid dividends.

Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) decision to kick off its iPhone release schedule with pricier models forms part of a calculated strategy to squeeze more money from customers, the The Wall Street Journal reported.

The new iPhones are dual SIM for the first time - but not with a physical SIM card. While the host doesn't really speak to how easy or hard it'll be to carry out DIY repairs on the new iPhone, the video certainly suggests that performing your own repairs won't exactly be a walk in the park. Integration of standards 4×4 MIMO with iPhone XS and XS Max also provides significantly improved throughput.

In the USA, the iPhone Xs 64GB retails for $999 - which is around R14,400 at today's currency rates. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available in stores starting 28 September 2018 (with preorders starting tomorrow on the iStore website), and this is how much you'll have to withdraw from your retirement fund.

With every new iPhone release, Apple sticks to the same script. Even the phone that's priced over $1,000, most people pay about $30 a month for it. The XS Max on the other hand raises the stakes with a bigger, 6.5-inch OLED display.

The XS Max will cost £1,099 for a 64GB version, £1,249 for a 256GB option and £1,499 for the 512GB model.

And the hardware also comes with the same 12-megapixel main camera present on the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max that was critically acclaimed in Express.co.uk's review of the latter.

Since 2016, the iPhone SE has remained in Apple's lineup as not only the last "small" iPhone, but also its most affordable, at just $350. Are you planning to use it without a protective case? The screen looks to be very good with the upgrades that are not distinguished with the upgrades. Unlike fast chargers, wireless chargers are not an included accessory on most - if any - smartphones, and fewer smartphones support wireless charging.
