IPhone XR Release Date And Cheaper Price Revealed At Apple Keynote 2018

An iPhone Xs in front of an iPhone Xs Max

In addition to the new XS and XS MAX, Apple has also announced the new iPhone XR, the latest budget iPhone that still packs a mean punch.

They hit stores on September 21, 2018 with the iPhone XS priced at $999 (£999) and the XS Max a whopping $1,099 (£1,099).

On the back, there's a single 12-megapixel, f/1.8 camera with a noticeable bump.

These upgrades apply to the front camera too, so your selfies can look like they were taken by a professional photographer.

The phones are equipped with faster processors and better memory capacities than ever before, relying on Apple's new A12 Bionic chip.

Other camera features include Portrait Lighting, Animoji, and Memoji. Even the fact that Apple discontinued last year's iPhone X shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that the new iPhone XS seemingly serves as an entry-level option for consumers eager to pick up a new device without necessarily breaking the bank.

Additionally, iPhone XS and XS Max have increased water resistance, enduring up to the depth of 2 metres for up to 30 minutes. With the most expensive iPhone XS Max costing £1449, that might seem a little unfair on Apple's part.

SpaceX Signs its First Private Passenger to Fly 'Round the Moon
The company is tight-lipped on the rest, save a second tweet noting "only 24 humans have been to the Moon in history". Humans have not set foot on the Moon since the final Apollo mission in 1972, capping an era of U.S. national pride.

Prior to Apple's official unveiling of the iPhone X previous year, many analysts expected its anticipated revamped design to spark a massive upgrade cycle. For the benefit of owning an iPhone with a 6.5-inch screen you will have a hard time to carry that around in the back pocket of your jeans.

The iPhone XS models unveiled Wednesday come with an "eSIM" feature that supports two cellular services and easier switching between carriers, but that technology won't be available in China, Hong Kong, and Macau. The phone comes in three different storage sizes-64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB-and will be available in six finishes: black, white, red, yellow, blue, and coral.

The XS and XS Max have dual 12-megapixel rear cameras and a dual 7-megapixel selfie camera - just like the iPhone X. The process by which the smartphones will be able to receive and make calls from both SIMs, which Apple calls it the Dual SIM Dual Standby technology.

Apple on Wednesday unveiled updated versions of its priciest iPhones along with a new smartwatch that allows users to take their own electrocardiograms, as the U.S. tech giant looks to boost its momentum in a sputtering market.

They start at $599 with Global Positioning System, and $749 with Global Positioning System and cellular.

Weighing these futuristic new features against their hefty price tags, will you be waiting in line to grab your next iPhone or Apple Watch?
