The biggest announcements from Apple's iPhone Xs event

Share

We got to test the phone out in person, and reckon the display (which lands right in the middle, size-wise, of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max) might not reach the dizzying heights of OLED, but it remains a lovely smartphone display in its own right.

With the launch of the new iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple has reduced the price of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 models by £100. The previous prices of iPhone X were Rs 95,390 and Rs 1,08,930.

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 new iPhone comes with A12 Bionic chip against the A11 chip of iPhone X. As per the Cupertino-based company, the chip has "next-generation Neural Engine". Apple uses ingredients like water, soap, steel wool and special lighting to create a science-experiment-esque video that shows 4K, time-lapse, and slo-mo video shot on the iPhone XS.

The iPhone Xs has been introduced in a 512 GB storage model as well. It starts at $749 for the 64 GB model and will cost more for its 128 GB and 256 GB models. This is probably due to the bigger battery which, Apple claims, offer 30 minutes longer back up than iPhone X. The iPhone Xs has two SIM slots (in some countries, one slot will come with a eSIM).

iPhone Xr (pronounced iPhone ten "r") will start at $1029 CAD, and be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities.
