Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max are now available for pre-order

Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

The iPhone XR is the cheapest device with the 6.1 LCD screen with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels. Apart from that they also launched the latest Apple Watch Series 4.

"Additionally starting price for the 5.8" iPhone Xs remains the same as of its predecessor. The part has not yet shipped, however, with its appearance in the Mate family of smartphones scheduled for some time in October - and it looks like Apple may yet beat the company to the punch. Gareth notes that the industry were expecting this model to be delayed slightly, releasing after the iPhone XS, so a concurrent release is most welcome.

Design-wise TechRadar's Gareth Beavis says that next to the iPhone XS the new iPhone XR is "not quite as attractive", pointing out its thicker bezels and drawing your attention to the fact that its edges aren't made out of the same premium-feeling materials.

For the first time, Apple will not bundle a wired headphone dongle with its iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR.

Hurricane Florence pounds the Carolinas as it nears landfall
Once a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour , the hurricane was downgraded to a Category 1 on Thursday night. Hurricane-force winds extended 90 miles from its center, and tropical-storm-force winds up to 195 miles.

In terms of price, the iPhone XR retails for less than the iPhone XS, costing $749 to pick up at launch.

In China, the iPhone XS supports single-SIM while iPhone XS Max brings support for dual SIM. All other details are same as that of the iPhone XS.

Release date: The iPhone XR will be available in three different variants - 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.

The iPhone XS Max makes a lot of sense as Apple's most popular new iPhone, since it feeds into a year-long pent up demand for a plus-sized iPhone X version. In a "What's in the Box" listing on its product pages, Apple said that you'll find an iPhone, charger, and its wired Earpods earbuds. Its Pre-orders will begin on 19 October band the phone will start shipping on 26 October.
