IPhone XS shows that Apple is now Tim Cook’s company

As always, you could spend more to get more storage, but less than $800 got you Apple's latest and greatest smartphone - significantly less if you didn't want a giant screen.

Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi said of iOS 12 at a developers conference earlier this year the new system offers "detailed information and tools" to help users and parents keep tabs on device use.

The broker sees the lower price as evidence that Apple is making an aggressive push to move users onto more secure face ID, which could precede Apple Pay improvements in 2019.

When the iPhone SE came out in the spring of 2016, it was a big deal because, even though the phone wasn't particularly innovative, the idea of a new, purpose-built midrange device from Apple that started at just £350 was more than a welcome idea.

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.

The rear cameras in the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max have the same resolution as the iPhone X's dual lens camera, but that's all they have in common here.

In other words, Apple isn't treating the iPhone XR as some shabby relation. It was not until two years' later that the company diversified the line. However, with the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, only the display needs to be illuminated (locked or unlocked) to trigger a notification on your phone prompting you to perform the action from the tag.

For older iPhones, a battery replacement will set you back $49 in 2019.

Three new iPhones are heading our way: the XS, XS Max, and the XR.

The iPhone XR has a larger screen than the iPhone XS and the same A12 Bionic processor as the iPhone XS Max (which costs hundreds more). The iPhone 7 now starts at £449/$449, and the 7 Plus at £569/$569. In fact, it's already working: the iPhone's average selling price increased to $724 in the last quarter, up from only $606 the year before.

Apple is saying goodbye to the headphone jack for good.

But perhaps more importantly to Apple, the move pushes the company's customers to think seriously about AppleCare+, its warranty service. Or $750 to get a taste of what the best iPhone is like.
