The New $1,449 iPhone Won't Include A Free Headphone Dongle

Share

Whether you're the type of person who buys the new iPhone every year or your current phone is getting creaky with age and it's time to upgrade, you're probably wondering when these new devices will come out.

A dongle is a device used to connect a pair of headphones into a new Apple device, as any pair of non-Apple headphones don't fit. The iPhone XR has been replaced as a low-priced LCD alternative to the duo.

Activist investor Jana Partners and the California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS), which both have stakes in Apple, early this year called on the company to give parents more tools to ensure children are using its devices in ways that aren't hurting them. But hey! There's IP68 water resistance on offer here, and a new Gold color in addition to Silver and Space Gray. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red. The wide-angle camera features an all-new sensor, a six-element lens, and a maximum f/1.8 aperture, while the telephoto lens can go as wide as f/2.4.

Replacing the batteries in the iPhone X line will cost more than for other iPhones.

Release date: The iPhone XR will be available in three different variants - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. The A12 is the first 7nm chip in the industry, and boasts a 15% increase in performance over the A11, with the A12 GPU gaining an increase of over 50% over the A11's GPU.

An iOS 12 mobile operating system that will power new iPhones unveiled on Wednesday, and be pushed out as an update to prior models, has new features to reduce how much they distract people from the real world. That said, with one physical SIM and one e-SIM support, not many are bound to be pleased with this decision.

Per Digitimes Research, Apple will be able to sell 85 million units of iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR in the second half of 2018. Both models can be pre-ordered this Friday and will be available in stores on September 21 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, the United Kingdom, the U.S., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

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