Apple kills off the headphone jack by removing four older iPhones

Apple kills off the headphone jack by removing four older iPhones

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.

Apple earlier this week launched three new smartphones, iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

We admit, the idea of charging your Apple Watch, iPhone and AirPods all at the same time with battery status displayed on your smartphone is pretty neat. But do they deliver?

And a new "advanced Portrait mode" was shown off by Apple that gives users more control over bokeh effects that are applied in the background.

The iPhone XS Max is the biggest and heaviest iPhone ever sold by the company. Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will go on sale this month itself.

Apple says apps will launch up to 40 percent faster on the iPhone 6S, for instance, and you'll be able to open the camera up to 70 percent faster. Later this year Apple will release an iOS 12 update that will include an eSIM software update.


The display of the XS is made up of 2.7 million pixels and boasts a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch.

The iPhone XS starts at $999 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $1,349 for 512 GB of storage.

The new record was iPhone XS Max. The two devices are among the most expensive in the market. "The 6.5" gadget has the largest screen in the smartphone lineup's history. (For a while, we used the icky word "phablet"- for part-phone part-tablet - to describe them.) But now Apple's largest bests even Samsung's Note 9, which measures 6.4 inches. Since Jobs passed in 2011, there is no way of knowing what might have happened had he continued to steer the company over the last seven years.

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. Apple falls in second place, not too far behind, with 22.7%. Today, Sunday, September 16, is the last day Sam's Club is offering the free $100 gift card with the iPhone Xs activation.

At one point during Apple's keynote, three people demonstrating an augmented-reality game faced off while consumed by their giant screens, the ideal image for our binge smartphone times.

First Take: Both phones feel extremely exquisitely crafted in the hand and feature improved IP68 water resistance that's supposed to allow for 2m-deep water submersion for up to 30 minutes, but the Max is where the big changes (quite literally!) are most felt.
