Apple No Longer Bundles 3.5mm Audio Dongle With New iPhones

Subsequently, the adapter was then bundled along with last year's iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The removal of this relatively important accessory will most likely cause a handful of consumers to rethink whether purchasing a brand new, expensive 2018 iPhone will be worth it or not. In India, the top variant of the iPhone XR, with 128GB of storage is priced at Rs 91,900.

More and more smartphones feature edge-to-edge screen designs that get rid of the physical button, relying instead on gesture-based controls to navigate.

On the other hand, iPhone XS Max packs 6.5 inch Super Retina OLED display with the resolution of 1242×2688 pixels. You're out of luck, at least if you want one straight from Apple.

Courtesy of the A12 Bionic ISP, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will also now allow users to edit depth-of-field effects after a photo has already been taken, with a new Depth slider in the Photos app that will allow for the f-stop to be adjusted dynamically. The wide-angle camera features an all-new sensor, a six-element lens, and a maximum f/1.8 aperture, while the telephoto lens can go as wide as f/2.4. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red.

The iPhone XS Max (iPhone 11,6) does even better in Geekbench tests, and it's probably thanks to that extra gigabyte of RAM.

Battery replacement for an out-of-warranty iPhone in the X line - which includes the original 2017 iPhone X - will cost $69 next year, the site noted after Wednesday's unveiling of the newest iPhones.

The two phones are nearly identical in design and features, with the XS being a refinement on last year's phone. While battery replacement used to cost $79 regardless of the model, Apple dropped the price to a mere $29 for this campaign.

Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19).

The watch, sold in the United States from $399 and up, will be available in stores on September 21.

The pricey iPhones disturbed fans so much so, that Apple stocks started plummeting after the launch event.
