Apple launches its most expensive mass-produced iPhone | Articles | Chief Technology Officer

Apple ditches dongles for older iPhones too

The iPhone XR won't be available until October 26, with preorders opening up one week before that.

The new iPhone Xs is going to be extremely popular despite not sporting a new design. The user can buy second iPhone that can range from iPhone 8 to iPhone XS max that will get amortized credits worth $700.

Or perhaps Apple executives are smart enough to know that many early adopters who want the latest iPhones as soon as they're available will opt for a ridiculously expensive XS or XS Max model now as opposed to waiting for the slightly more affordable iPhone XR next month.

The smartphone giant released three new handsets this week, while discontinuing the iPhone SE, the company's last device with a four-inch display.

Apple says apps will launch up to 40 percent faster on the iPhone 6S, for instance, and you'll be able to open the camera up to 70 percent faster.

Regardless of these high prices, we doubt that Apple will have a problem shifting its stock as the company is close to shipping the 2 billionth iOS device. Apple would have had a small impact on its profit margins by selling the iPhone X at a reduced price this year since the cost of the material probably would not have decreased significantly. With the smartphone maker is offering discounts on previous generation iPhones in India, the United States customers also get deals on the newest flagship product - iPhone XS, though carrier based.

The big change in 2018 is a larger version of the phone with a 6.5-inch OLED screen called the iPhone XS Max.

Carphone Warehouse has a handy tool on its site which allows you to check if you're eligible for an upgrade to the iPhone XS Max.

Neither Apple nor Cirrus officially commented on the matter, but the analyst said: "While CRUS did admit the dongle was out in current generations, it's an additional negative that they are also removing the dongle from the older products".
