Trendforce, a respected analytics firm is of the opinion that the new 2018 iPhone devices will come with Apple Pencil support included, although Mr Ming-Chi Kuo doesn't feel the same and people tend to listen to him. Here is how they differ to help you work out which of the new iPhone X models is the right one for you. In addition, according to the information portal, iPhone XS will be available in gold color option.

As for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus release date along side the LCD-equipped cheaper variant, the launch event of the three new iPhones is taking place on 12th of September 2018, which means pre-orders will likely open a couple of days later on 14 September.

Earlier leaks by German website Macerkopf.de indicated that the 5.8-inch iPhone Xs will be priced at 909 euros (around Rs 76,000). Indeed, this is a departure from typical iPhone nomenclature, as Apple has used "Plus" since the iPhone 6.

Concerning MacBook 2018 lineup, the leak reveals that it will come in 12-inch and 13-inch Retina Display models. The XS will feature Apple's A12 processor and is expected pair with 4GB of RAM.


Despite the name change, you should think of the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max as very close siblings, like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The S indicates a phone with upgraded specs but built using the same design as the previous generation of phones.

The larger of the pair will be called the iPhone Xs Max, it claims, with the smaller simply called the iPhone Xs.

The company hasn't confirmed the details yet, but Apple's new iPhones have already leaked out ahead of the media event at Steve Jobs Theater next week. It also doesn't offer 3D Touch like the iPhone XS and XS Max, though it does come with True Tone technology and a P3 wide colour gamut. Truth be told, as long as Apple's 6.1-inch LCD model is somewhat affordable, it won't really matter how pricey its iPhone XS models are. According to the research note, detailed by MacRumors, both premium iPhone models expected to be released this year will have storage options of 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB. It will also feature its direct predecessor's most popular feature, the Face ID. The iPhone XS Max will start at £1099. Apple says that the fix program may not be available in some markets, so make sure users check if they live in supported countries before proceeding. At the same time, it appears that the iPhone Xs Max will be about as large as the iPhone 8 Plus (with its huge bezels). But of course these will not be the prices for the iPhone Xs series in India.
