  • iPhone XS release date, price, photos, and specifications

Apple unveiled three new iPhone models at its "Gather Round" media event on Wednesday. At $749, it's still more than the $649 that consumers used to pay for an entry-level iPhone, but that's still far less than the $999 iPhone XS. Pre-orders will start on October 19th and the phone will hit store shelves on October 26.

The new iPhones are likely to start at $800 for the LCD model, $900 for the iPhone X update and $1,000 for 6.5-inch OLED model, up from last year's starting prices of $699, $799 and $999, according to Nomura Group. Both the new iPhones will be succeeding the existing iPhone X.

T3 will shortly be going hands on with the iPhone Xr, so make sure to check back in to T3.com soon for the complete picture. You can read everything we know about it below as we update our page with the latest facts from Apple's showcase.

'The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminum and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six lovely finishes. The front camera is still a 7MP lens but has a 2x faster sensor and improved red-eye reduction, detail segmentation, and more thanks to the A12 chip. Ten years into the iPhone revolution, most major websites now have a phone-friendly version that will look great and let you get down to business on that screen.

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.

And then there's the iPhone Xs Max, which is the closest Apple has ever come to full smartphone overkill.

Apple will no longer include a Lightning-to-3.5mm headphone jack adapter with new iPhone purchases. During that period, which is typically slow for Apple, China's Huawei Technologies surpassed Apple as the second-largest seller of smartphones based on Gartner's calculations.




CUPERTINO, CALIFORNIA - SEPTEMBER 11: Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple Inc., at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park on September 12, 2018 in Cupertino, California. To be accurate, only one version will have the ability to accommodate two physical SIM cards: a dual-SIM version of the iPhone Xs Max intended for China.

The phone has a new display called a liquid retina display.

No home button. Got it. This phone comes in funky colours like Coral, White, Yellow, Black, Blue and even the Product Red.

Processor. The A12 Bionic chip found in all the new models skates out to the jagged edge of silicon chip design. However, the XR loses out on 3D Touch and relies on Taptic Feedback for launching the camera or the flashlight. There's a new Smart HDR feature for maximising colour performance, too.

The company also introduced a lower-cost 6.1-inch (15.5 cm) iPhone XR made of aluminum and lower screen quality.

Does it still have wireless charging?
