However Apple's third new iPhone, the XR, isn't available for preorders yet.

Now, according to a new report by The Verge, IDC has claimed delay in Apple iPhone XR shipments could be due to a hardware issue.

Likewise, Forbes' Gordon Kelly wrote a detailed head-to-head comparison of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but advised consumers to buy the iPhone XR, as the device "delivers all the key features" of its higher-end counterparts at a considerably lower price. Walmart is now finally offering an iPhone Xs deal. The iPhone XR also has bigger bezels when compared to the iPhone X.

Of course this jump in screen size has also meant an increase in pixels so as to offer a clear and sharp picture.

The iPhone XR has a larger display than the iPhone XS. Pre-orders for two of the three 2018 iPhone start today.

Many think that the iPhone 5s was the pinnacle of the iPhone design so the iPhone SE was a nice surprise to those looking for small screen on a budget. Both the iPhone XS and iPhone X comes with same 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display that offers 2436 x 1125 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The new iPhones are also equipped with Dolby Vision HDR 10. It means only the touch digitizer runs at 120Hz for faster touch recognition.


It is positioning the new watch as a more comprehensive health device, able to take an electrocardiogram (ECG) to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers.

And like a luxury vehicle, you can pay for an iPhone in smaller, less extreme monthly payments. It will continue to sell the iPhone 7, starting at $449, and 8, starting at $599. And if last year's iPhone X is anything to go by, the 6.5-inch OLED screen on the XS Max is going to be something else in terms of image quality. The phone has a dual back camera with a 12 megapixel wide-angle lens and a 12 megapixel telephoto lens. It comes with Face ID and A12 Bionic like the iPhone XS series. While the iPone XR has a single rear shooter but still can manage to produce Portrait mode photos, and through a software engineering.

That means both the Xs and Xs Max should be able to blitz through iOS 12 and tackle the latest and greatest games easily.

But the device's new features aren't just about helping you track a workout, or reminding you to take a second to breathe deeply, like current models. The new line-up has followed some design cues from the last year's iPhone X, courtesy of notched display and overall design.

To make way for the brand new iPhone Xr, Xs and Xs Max, Apple has discontinued the iPhone SE, 6S/6S Plus and even the 10th anniversary 'X, ' which only debuted last September, said the Daily Mail.
