Apple will no longer give free dongles with new iPhones

Apple unveiled its newest flagship phone for this year, the iPhone XS.

The Cupertino technology company has been prepping customers up for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 preorder process since its special launch event at Steve Jobs Theater concluded.

Bye, Apple iPhone X, iPhone SE, and iPhone 6S! Aside from the camera's depth of field effect, the XS "doesn't introduce any new features of note compared to its now-deprecated predecessor".

Front camera: 7 MP photos and 1080p HD video.

We might just hold on to our Apple iPhone X. IP67 implies that the iPhone XR can withstand water up to one meter (3.3 feet) for 30 minutes.

The iPhone XS Max is expected to be the "Plus" version of the iPhone XS, with a larger screen.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive.

For those in the U.K, this means the iPhone price cuts bring the iPhone 7 to a £449 starting point, and the iPhone 8 to £599. All other pre-orders for the T-Mobile version of the new iPhone models will ship in 1 to 2 weeks. It scans your face to unlock your phone. Now, AnTuTu has shared a new screenshot which reveals that the Apple A12 powered iPhone XS handset has recorded a marvelous score of more 363k. But after year of use I can say Face ID is far superior. Or, opt for a 256GB iPhone 8 or 8 Plus device and get a $24.99 monthly credit for two years. Part of the reason it's so much larger is that is has to power that massive, higher resolution display.


The unveiling of Apple's latest range of iPhones has sparked a flurry of reviews - and a wide range of verdicts. When they were rattling off the specs for the "cheap iPhone X" I was shocked at how similar it was to the iPhone Xs.

The Apple Store will have each of the devices available with their carriers activated on the spot, but they'll also have these devices available off-contract and without carrier conditions. It will come in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB storage, priced at USD$749, USD$799, and USD$899 respectively. The new iPhone XS sports a 12MP wide-angle sensor with f/1.8 aperture and telephoto sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The XS features the A12 Bionic chipset-and upgrade over the 8's A11 Bionic.

While the Snapdragon 835 from a year ago was no slouch, Apple's A11 Bionic chip proved to absolutely crush it. Qualcomm's made big improvements with the 845, but once again, the A12 Bionic has us drooling with its massive potential. The GPU now has 4 cores and is 50% faster. The first is for the A12 Bionic.

The XS and XS Max are a clear improvement over the iPhone X, but neither are significantly better than the cheaper XR, according to The Verge. There's also no 3D touch and just one camera on the back, no dual-lens system.

The post Thursday Apple Rumors: iPhone XR May Be a Big Seller for Apple appeared first on InvestorPlace. Do you think the iPhone XR will be the choice of many users?

And then there is the cost. And any other damage will cost $599.

The company confirmed that the iPhone XS and XS Max will have dual-SIM but only in china, the two iPhones will have support two physical SIMcards.
