RIP iPhone: Apple discontinues its flagships


Apple revealed the shimmery new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR with a new powerful chip and better camera.

Apple India's official website has no mention of prices of the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE, so it will be fair to assume that Apple is discontinuing the two devices. But hey! There's IP68 water resistance on offer here, and a new Gold color in addition to Silver and Space Gray. The iPhone XS Max becomes the modern OLED successor to Apple's "Plus" models, although in this case it includes all of the same features of its smaller sibling, merely expanding the screen to a 6.5-inch diagonal, in the same general physical dimensions of an iPhone 8 Plus. The wide-angle camera features an all-new sensor, a six-element lens, and a maximum f/1.8 aperture, while the telephoto lens can go as wide as f/2.4. But remember, Apple used LCD screens up until last year's iPhone X, so longtime fans shouldn't feel the need to rebel. It has the same upgraded technology as the iPhone XS phones, and you can take Bokeh portrait shots with the help of software. The four-core GPU also boasts up to 50 percent faster performance.

In other words, Apple isn't treating the iPhone XR as some shabby relation. This storage option is available on both the iPhone XS / XS Max, but not the iPhone Xr.

On the battery front, Apple's not going with specific numbers, but with the iPhone XS, you should expect a battery life of around 30 minutes more than the iPhone X, or 90 minutes more with the iPhone XS Max over the iPhone X.

That said, with one physical SIM and one e-SIM support, not many are bound to be pleased with this decision.

The iPhone XS will cost you €1,179, the iPhoneXR, the price will be €879, and the iPhone XSMax, which is the most expensive, will set you back €1,279.
