Check out the official iPhone XS, XS Max and XR promo videos

Poll results iPhone 9 would've been the best name for the “affordable” iPhone The Apple Watch is inching toward becoming a medical device

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. The new range now comes with a fullscreen display and FaceID as standard - this was introduced by the trendsetting iPhone X a year ago.

The differences in size, however, are not even a fraction of an inch, unlike during the iPhone 7 to iPhone 8 move, so if you have been wondering whether your old case will fit the new phone when you put the naked X up on Craigslist, it should. The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display, A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup.

Zino said that he forecasts that the XR will make up more than 50 percent of sales of Apple's new handsets. The last time it discontinued an iPhone model a year after announcing it was the iPhone 5, released in 2012 and canned in 2013.

One compelling theory is its price. Models ranging from the iPhone SE to the iPhone X will see a price hike, going from $29 up to $49 for all models but the iPhone X, which will go up to $69.

IPhone Xs and Xs Max hands-on: The new normal
The iPhone XS claims 30 minutes more life compared to the iPhone X, while the XS Max delivers an hour and a half extra juice. Many hardcore tech fans had seen this coming as Apple looks to fight off competition from the likes of Samsung and Huawei.


The phone has a single 12MP rear sensor, rather than the two on the XS and XS Max, while the front comes installed with a TrueDepth camera for facial unlocking and selfies. "iPhone X would hurt product brand value & lineup of 2H18 new models if it continues to sell at a lower price after 2H18 new models launch", he wrote in a research note, according to MacRumors. Why pay $999 for the wonderful screen on the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max when you could effectively buy the same phone for $100 less?

So if you want to listen to music with wired headphones on your fancy new $1,449 iPhone XS Max, you'll have to shell out an extra $9.00 for one of the clumsy, much-hated and all-too-frequently lost adapters.

T3 will imminently be reviewing the iPhone XS in full, so be sure to check back in soon for our official verdict.
