IPhone battery replacement price hike is coming: Here’s what it’ll cost

iPhone Xs and iPhone XR Can Read NFC Tags in Background

£100 price drop on iPhone 7 & iPhone 8 – no more iPhone X, SE and 6

Until his death in 2011, Apple only ever produced one model of the iPhone each year.

If you're willing to deal with smaller prepaid operators, you can typically save even more while not having to jump through as many hoops.

Apple has officially announced the existence of iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR at its September 12 "Gather Round" even in Cupertino.

What about the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE?

What seems to have become customary with the latest iPhones, Apple hiked the prices of the new devices and since there's a new variant with a massive screen, the price tags also got bigger.

When Apple released the iPhone X previous year, it was widely considered to be the best smartphone the company had ever made, marking a major step forward with features like Face ID and a high-end camera to rival the Huawei P20 Pro and Google Pixel 2.

Apple is no longer selling the iPhone X.

While iPhone sales have slowed, Apple profits have risen along with the average purchase price of its handsets.

Tuesday's incident comes just a week after a similar interception of Russian bombers south of the Aleutian Islands. However, defense officials said the bombers in that flight were supported by aerial refueling tankers.


Colorful identity: If you want your iPhone XS to be any color than gold, silver or black-grey, you'll have to buy a case. The XR has a 6.1-inch screen, which lands it right between the XS and XS Max in terms of size.

In China, the iPhone XS supports single-SIM while iPhone XS Max brings support for dual SIM. The A12 Bionic is faster and more efficient than before and packs Apple's own GPU as well as an improved neural engine.

So, if you've got a phone with what you suspect is a dying battery, it's probably a good idea to take it into an Apple Store for repairs before December 31, 2018.

All three devices feature stunning edge-to-edge displays with nearly no bezels around, and a stainless steel frame on the iPhone XS / XS Max, and an aluminum frame on the iPhone XR.

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. It's a more affordable version of the XS, and it comes in a number of bright colors.

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.

The next one is about the new Apple Watch Series 4. For those who are interested in the lower-priced iPhone XR complete with LCD panel, pre-orders will begin on October 19th.
