Apple India prices revealed; internet explodes with memes

Since that phone lasted longer than the iPhone X in CNET's looping video tests(in airplane mode), we at least have an inkling that the XR could outlast Apple's more expensive iPhones. Whether you're the type of person who buys the new iPhone every year or your current phone is getting creaky with age and it's time to upgrade, you're probably wondering when these new devices will come out.

Thus, if you have been thinking of keeping your favorite case you now have on your iPhone X, and upgrading to the iPhone XS without splurging more than the $999 Apple demands for it, you will be able to fit the new phone in the old case without the help of a heat gun.

Predictably, folks on Twitter did not greet the news favorably.

Apple is also accelerating its global rollout compared to prior years, with the XS and XS Max expected to arrive in 22 more countries on September 28, including Andorra, Armenia, Bahrain, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, India, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Malta, Monaco, Oman, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and South Africa.

That's still more than the iPhone SE, however, which sold for $399, making it the cheapest iPhone the firm had sold.


One key detail that Apple did not mention during its recent keynote is the fact that it will not be shipping the Lightning to 3.5mm audio dongle with its new iPhones.

The Beats Solo3 Wireless on-ear headphones, priced at $299.95 United States dollars, incorporates Apple's W1 chip for easy one-step Bluetooth connection, while featuring adjustable cushioned, pivoting ear cups. It also makes me anxious about Apple's new pricing structure, which, in the case of the iPhone, uses a lower-priced smartphone neutered in some important ways to strongly suggest users buy the more expensive, more capable device.

Apple is no longer selling the iPhone X.

Apple also announced the iPhone XR during the presentation. The iPhone Xr is coming later than the other devices, and will be available to pre-order from October 19th, with the phone arriving a week after on October 26th. They were also the last iPhones with a headphone jack.
