The biggest announcements from Apple's iPhone Xs event

While battery replacement used to cost $79 regardless of the model, Apple dropped the price to a mere $29 for this campaign. Strangely the iPhone X which was released previous year, as well as other iPhones tht were not mentioned is no longer listed on Apple Malaysia's official website.

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were unveiled in 2015 and it was evident Apple would kill the handset sooner or later. According to reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple paid between $120 and $130 per screen unit, which was about twice as much as it normally pays for screens.

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.

iPhone XS and XS Max. Want a cheaper iPhone? In India, the top variant of the iPhone XR, with 128GB of storage is priced at Rs 91,900.


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.

Here are all the Apple devices that have received price cut after iPhone XR and iPhone XS launch.

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 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. Both boast a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera, both come with the facial recognition feature Face ID.
