Apple unveil three new iPhones which go on sale this month

Big news for the tech giants...

Apple's new iPhones for 2018, are officially here. Say hello to the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.


The new phones look almost identical to their predecessor, but there's one large difference (aside from colour, with both being made available gold), the XS Max is a very big phone.

It's not just Apple's biggest iPhone ever, it will be one of the largest smartphones on the market when it goes on sale later this month. It will have a 6.5-inch screen, much bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus (6.2-inch) and even the Galaxy Note 9 (6.4-inch).

In terms of price, the iPhone XR will start at $749 (€644), iPhone XS at $999 (€859), and iPhone XS Max at $1,099 (€945).

While the XS and XS Max are quite similar phones, the XR is a more budget version (although not in price) of the other two with similar specs but slimline features such as a smaller battery.


New iPhone

For buyers, iPhone XSs offer a new processor for faster performance, storage space up to 512 GB and an overall improved display for better color representation. Both will have dual SIM capability meaning you can have two numbers on the same phone.

The XS will also have a dual camera system which promises a sharper camera when combined with A12 Bionic chip inside. The XR will have single camera 12-megapixel wide-angle lens.

Less than one year after it's release, Apple will stop selling the iPhone X, and with it, the last iPhone with a headphone jack... which we're not very happy about but that's a discussion for a different time.


The preorders for the iPhone XS and XS Max begin on Friday, 14 September and phones will go on sale on 21 September. The iPhone XR preorders begin on 19 October and will go on sale on 26 October.
