Apple ditches free headphone adapter with new iPhones

Saturday, 15 Sep, 2018

Apple iPhone XR, which is being touted as the most "affordable" one on the list, yet with a $749 starting price, it's safe to say there's nothing "budget" about it.

New Depth Control allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture to create striking portraits with a attractive bokeh effect.

The Digital Crown on the side has also been completely redesigned with haptic feedback so you'll actually be able to "feel" as you scroll through photos, text messages or settings. The LCD iPhone XR will be available at Rs 76,900 in India.

CEO Tim Cook showed off the iPhone XS Max, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,100, topping the iPhone X, which at $1,000 seemed jaw-dropping at the time. It's got a lower resolution screen than the flagship models, and, unlike them, its display is based on LCD technology, not OLED. This looks like a direct replacement of the smaller iPhone 8. Both phones will be available in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold finishes and will come in 64GB, 128GB, 512GB storage options. Xs Max is offered at £1,099, £1,249 and £1,449 price that is PKR 175,000, 200,000 and 230,000 respectively.

Dual rear camera is provided in iPhone XS and XS Max. Available for pre-order: Friday, October 19 with availability beginning Friday, October 26.

The attractive 6.1-inch all-screen Liquid Retina display is the most color accurate in the industry, with wide color support and True Tone for a more natural viewing experience. So expect similar looking devices to last year's iPhone X with a few internal upgrades. An updated iPhone X, now called the XS, stays at $1,000.

The display on the iPhone XS Max has 3.3 million pixels and the same pixel density as the iPhone XS.

Apple just unveiled the iPhone XR at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cupertino, along with the iPhone XS and XS Max.

And Apple didn't stop at one iPhone this year: you'll have to choose between the Xs, the Xs Max (the Xs' bigger brother) and the confusingly named iPhone XR - a cheaper option if you don't fancy dipping into your rainy-day fund.

Apple will be hoping that bigger is better with the release of their new phones because while there wasn't a massive overall sea change in terms of the design, the XS Max is a very big unit. A breakthrough 12MP camera system with Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, enhanced bokeh, and all-new Depth Control. Screen, AR features and much more.

The significant price gap between iPhone XR and iPhone XS model makes us curious how and why this model is lesser expensive than the other two.
