Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

But remember, Apple used LCD screens up until last year's iPhone X, so longtime fans shouldn't feel the need to rebel.

Since both the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max have same specs, it means both of them feature 4GB of RAM.

The next one is about the new Apple Watch Series 4.

Like the iPhone X, the new devices are meant to pronounce the "X" as 'ten, ' but many have already read it as X, causing some rather unfortunate pronunciations of the iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone Xs.

The analyst also told The Post that he predicts that even the 2-year-old iPhone 7, which has seen its starting price cut to $449, will outsell the iPhone 8, thanks to its appeal in developing markets.

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. The price for the iPhone XS starts at $999 for the 64 GB model and goes up from there for 256 GB and 512 GB. They are the same size. The overall design is much the same. The XS comes with a better chip under the hood and is more water-resistant, but for most people the differences will feel incremental.


Battery life: We can't say for sure until we test all three new iPhones, but the iPhone XR might have longer battery life than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Many were slow to adapt to the dongle when Apple first debuted the annoying accessory, claiming it was a design failure and an inconvenience to the consumer.

Those reasons? The fact that Apple has likely put less RAM in to the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and the screen resolution is likely going to be less, too.

Kuo predicted in January that this would happen. "iPhone X would hurt product brand value & lineup of 2H18 new models if it continues to sell at a lower price after 2H18 new models launch", he wrote in a research note, according to MacRumors.

For any iPhone X owners anxious about whether the discontinuation will dent the resale value of their phone, the Forrester analyst Thomas Husson has some reassuring words.

"When it's all said and done, I think it's the key for the cycle", Zino said.
