Apple’s budget-friendly iPhone Xr will start at $749

New Camera Features. The cameras on the XS and XS Max have pretty much the same specs as those of the departing iPhone X. There are dual 12MP rear cameras, along with a 7MP front, or selfie, camera.

In comparison, the starting price point for the iPhone Xs is listed at $999 USD, while the Xs Max is just one hundred dollars more, $1,099 USD, both for the 64 GB model.

The Xs Max smartphone has a 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED display, while the Xs has a 5.8-inch screen. Apple used older LCD screen technology and aluminum, rather than stainless steel, edges.

Yet while the iPhone updates were significant, another less heralded device, the Apple Watch, stole the show.

The relatively small changes to its lineup, following last year's overhauled iPhone X, were widely expected by investors and the company's shares ended down 1.2 percent at $221.07.

The iPhone Xr model will be available in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red colors.

The iPhone XR will be available starting at $1029 CAD and customers will be able to pre-order iPhone XR beginning Friday, October 19 with availability beginning Friday, October 26. Indeed, even Apple executives remarked that the iPhone SE was markedly more popular than they initially anticipated when the device first launched back in March of 2016. All of this unlocks new experiences for games, photography, video editing and graphics-intensive apps while still offering great battery life.

She said the decision to hand over the investigation was made "to ensure total transparency in our operations". He had recently graduated from Harding University in Arkansas and had been working in Dallas since 2016.

The iPhone XS and XS Max feature improved dual 12-megapixel cameras, with better True Tone sensors and fast 1.8 aperture lenses. With iOS 12, Apple promises benchmarking performance.

The camera on the iPhone XR has had one hell of a shakeup; there's a single camera system, which the company assures is the "best ever".

It's no secret that Apple tends to bump off an older iPhone variant when new handsets are launched, but this time round one of the fatalities is a little more poignant.

The iPhone XS is entirely waterproof and liquid proof, with the most durable glass ever on a smartphone. With curved corners, it's also slightly thinner, has more reliable reception and two times faster, thanks to a new processor.

Battery life, in comparison to the iPhone 8 Plus, is improved by 90 minutes. However, the XR loses out on 3D Touch and relies on Taptic Feedback for launching the camera or the flashlight. It's a six-core CPU, and uses a new, eight-core Neural Engine to power the machine learning systems on the iPhone XR that can process up to five trillion (yep) operations per second. The Smart HDR is the most hyped feature that takes multiple shots in different exposures and combines them to get the bets shot.

Will those people stubbornly holding on to an iPhone 6 or iPhone 7 finally be tempted by the iPhone XR?

CarPlay, the iPhone integration with certain vehicle infotainment systems, will support Google Maps and Waze.
