Of course, one could always go for the smaller iPhone XS, but even so, you'll be hitting S$1,649 onwards.

SpeedSmart posted the results to Twitter and they show impressive speed gains from the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, compared to the previous generation iPhone X. Faster uploads and especially faster downloads can be seen across AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

A bright spot in an otherwise low-key upgrade is the dual SIM support, a feature that the company's much-touted iPhone X did not have.

According to Kuo's predictions, the iPhone XS Max will make up about 30 per cent of shipments, while the most "affordable" option on the list is the iPhone XR, which will account for 55 to 60 per cent of shipments of the 2018 iPhone series.

Xiaomi pokes fun at Apple with phone, laptop, fitness tracker, and Bluetooth earphones bundles that cost the same as the new iPhones. For the most part, the iPhone XR boasts all of the same features as the iPhone XS at a fraction of the price.

Yusaka Maezawa has purchased every available seat aboard Musk's first BFR rocket that will travel to the moon as early as 2023. He said he often mused about what artists like Basquiat or Andy Warhol might have come up with if they'd travelled into space.

Apple's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max launch on September 21 followed by the iPhone XR on October 26.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Apple unveiled three new smartphones - the iPhone XS, with a larger screen iPhone XS Max, and an easier version of the iPhone XR. There have always been "S" models - the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S, and iPhone 6S - for the in-between years. Canandaigua National Bank & Trust Co. now owns 51,711 shares of the iPhone maker's stock worth $8,676,000 after purchasing an additional 280 shares in the last quarter.

There's the iPhone XS - the next main edition of the iPhone, and the successor to 2017's iPhone X.

She's not the only one saying Apple is making the iPhone too big for women's hands. This chipset was the first to use the technology to 7 nanometers, while all the other brands continue to operate 10 Nm.

This, in turn, gave Apple an incredibly diverse iPhone lineup: As of a year ago, Apple's iPhone lineup featured models priced from $350 all the way to $1,149, giving customers a wide range of options to choose from. While this isn't to say that Apple was neglecting the XR, it does suggest Apple made a point to get its pricier models out into the marketplace before all else.
