Apple expected to expand iPhone line-up

Here's how pictures of the new iPhone XS leaked

While you it looks like you can use older cases with the iPhone XS, that hasn't stopped companies - including Apple itself - from releasing new cases for the iPhone XS anyways.

While the iPhone has made Apple the world's most valuable company, worth more than $1 trillion, it has slipped to third place among smartphone makers as Chinese-based Huawei has grabbed the number two spot behind Samsung. First off were the premium iPhone Xs and Xs Max, the ultra-pricey upgrades to the iPhone X. After that, we were at last able to feast our eyes upon the iPhone XR, the iPhone 8 successor formerly known as the iPhone 9 - among other titles. The crown now gets haptic support and is a major plus for anyone who uses Apple Music as their daily music driver.

Apple has unveiled the Watch Series 4 boasting a new thinner design but with a much larger display. We got to spend some time with the Apple Watch 4. In case you didn't know, 3D Touch is a pressure-sensitive feature that was launched in 2015 with iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. However this feature will be given after some time.

The iPhone XS and its bigger sibling, the XS Max, have been launched as successors to the iPhone X. Both phones, though distinct in sizes, sport similar "Super Retina" custom OLED displays, have dual rear camera setups, and the A12 Bionic processor comes as standard on each. But it didn't, due to the product's steep R18,000 price tag. There will also be three versions available for the smartphone: a 64GB model, a 128GB model, and a 256GB model.

But the XR is a wholly new model.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max (read, "ten S" and "ten S Max") carry on the all-screen design of iPhone X, and also continues down the route of "no home buttons". The iPhone XS Max is essentially a larger iPhone XS.

What's more, it comes in a rainbow's assortment of colours.

The new "cheap" iPhone has arrived. Fortunately, except for an additional sensor, iPhone XR retains all of the software and hardware features like optical image stabilisation and 4K video recording at 24 fps, 30 fps or 60 fps.


The new 6-core A12 Bionic chip has 2 performance cores up to 15 percent faster and 40 percent lower power, and 4 efficiency cores with up to 50 percent lower power.

The iPhone XR comes in an assortment of colors. It'll cost roughly $750 and come out on October 26.

As for the iPhoneXR, the price is €879 and it has a 6.1 inch display. The iPhone XS with its neural engine can take photos and portraits in more detail than ever before.

To be sure, the XR doesn't have all of the bells and whistles in the XS. Consumers will likely be able to tell the difference if they compare them side by side. Xs Max is offered at £1,099, £1,249 and £1,449 price that is PKR 175,000, 200,000 and 230,000 respectively.

As much as Apple loves throwing phrases such as "revolutionary", "a new level", and "best ever", the new iPhones aren't sporting that much innovation from its previous generation.

But my guess is none of that will matter.

The size of Apple's iPhone devices has increased steadily over their 11-year history, starting at just 3.5 inches on the first handset.
