Apple CEO's Defense Of iPhone Pricing Raises Questions

The iPhone XS is the best iPhone ever but there are good reasons to hold off on buying one

Interestingly, Apple has also reduced battery capacity this time with the iPhone XS, but hasn't compromised on the performance.

This, in turn, gave Apple an incredibly diverse iPhone lineup: As of past year, 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. Apple iPhone XS Max is also available in the same storage variants. The company launched three new iPhones - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. While the iPhone XS isn't necessarily a big upgrade for iPhone X owners, moving from the iPhone 7 or iPhone 8 to an iPhone XR is going to be a noticeable improvement.

But thanks to Chinese tech regulator the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the gaps in Apple's specs for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR have now been filled.

Apple's older iPhone "Plus" models actually had the same dimensions as the iPhone XS Max, but the display is significantly larger on the new phone since it stretches to the edges of the enclosure.

AirPower was originally supposed to release in 2018, Apple said at the September 2017 iPhone event. As a whole, the iPad Mini is still larger and heavier than the iPhone XS Max, as it has a different form factor, aspect ratio, and extra room around the display for the camera and home button, but it's interesting to see how close the two display sizes are. Like the iPhone X, the iPhone XR has 3GB of RAM.

Official iPhone XS, XS Max, XR Battery and RAM Details Revealed
Apple also debuted the "affordable" iPhone XR, which starts at $749 and sports a 6.1-inch "liquid retina" display. Unlike most Android handset makers, Apple doesn't disclose precise details about the iPhone's battery or RAM.

Apple's iOS 12.1 code hints at new iPads coming in the fall
First of all, 9to5Mac found a daemon running in iOS 12.1 that seems to suggest support for syncing Memojis across iOS devices. Another nifty addition is "Siri Shortcuts" that allows any app to now work with Apple's digital assistant Siri.

At the launch of the iPhone XS alongside the new Apple Watch at Apple's headquarters in California on September 12, Apple's chief design officer Jony Ive said the new phones are the company's "uncompromised vision for the future." .

This year, Apple is flogging handsets that cost right up to £1,449 - making it the most expensive roster of iPhones ever.

And Apple fans similarly headed to London's Apple Store by 7am ahead of today's new iPhone launch.

The iPhone XS comes with price tags of Dh4,229 (64GB), Dh4,859 (256GB) and Dh5,709 (512GB). What do you think Huawei is trying to tell Apple?

A slight notch above the iPhone X.
