IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression | ETPanache

Still, analysts say Apple has a formula that works with a loyal customer base and steady sales. 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.

Apple's new lineup includes the iPhone Xs Max, Xs and Xr, as well as older models like iPhone 8/8 Plus and the 7/7 Plus.

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.

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.

The removal of the iPhone SE also isn't terribly surprising, as Apple is billing the iPhone Xr as its "budget" device (no matter it still carries a $749 price tag), plus it offers the iPhone 7 for $449. Let's break down Apple's new iPhone release dates. Now, the chances of that happening seem much slimmer. The iPhone XR has been replaced as a low-priced LCD alternative to the duo.


The Beats Solo3 Wireless on-ear headphones, priced at $299.95 Dollars, incorporates Apple's W1 chip for easy one-step Bluetooth connection, while featuring adjustable cushioned, pivoting ear cups.

With these changes astir, now might be the ideal time to pick up a discontinued iPhone before it falls out of circulation, especially if you're after a model with a headphone jack.

Those devices, plus the iPhone X, are no longer available through Apple's website. If you want a 2018 iPhone (and not the iPhone 8, 8 Plus or iPhone 7), you can keep a little more money in the bank.

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were unveiled in 2015 and it was evident Apple would kill the handset sooner or later.
