IPhone Xs Max, iPhone XR Geekbench Scores Blow Away the Competition

The Apple Watch is inching toward becoming a medical device Apple's $29 iPhone battery replacements will cost $69 after December

The iPhone 7 now starts at £449/$449, and the 7 Plus at £569/$569.

The iPhone XR, which will be released in October, is the least expensive of the three new iPhones. "If you're a consumer, it's a no-brainer, you go with the iPhone XR".

Announced at a press event late last night, Apple's A12 Bionic is the company's latest in-house SoC design - and, like the Kirin 980, is built on TSMC's 7nm process node.

Luckily, if you owned a previous iPhone that came with a wired dongle, you can still use that with the new Apple handsets.

Predictably, folks on Twitter did not greet the news favorably. The iPhone XS (pronounced "ten ess") and XS Max are the updated version of last year's iPhone X. The XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display, while the XS Max has a 6.5-inch display.

Apple debuts 6.1-inch LCD iPhone XR, coming in October
The starting price of the new iPhone XS, the successor to the iPhone X , is the same as the iPhone X's: $US999. The new iPhone XR's release date is pencilled in for September 21, with pre-orders going live on September 14.

Gareth does note though that the camera system also supports Smart HDR, which allows the iPhone XR to "really capture the high-end elements of a photo, fusing the light and dark elements well", and that the pictures he took were clear, sharp and colourful.

The two phones are nearly identical in design and features, with the XS being a refinement of last year's phone. A single 12-megapixel camera resides on the back.

Since both the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max have same specs, it means both of them feature 4GB of RAM.

Aluminum vs. steel: Stainless steel sides hug the pricier iPhones, but the iPhone XR is made with an aluminum frame, like many other phones on the market.

3D Touch: There's no more 3D Touch, which means you won't press in to launch apps or see widgets.

Hurricane Florence, 8 pm Monday: Torrential flooding expected statewide
Other top officials involved in last year's hurricane season , including Long and Nielsen, also remain in place. Henry McMaster ordered the mandatory evacuation of the state's coastline beginning at noon Tuesday.

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). It features an edge-to-edge display and a faster processor than the $699 8 Plus.

Here are two more Apple Watch ads.

Colorful identity: If you want your iPhone XS to be any color than gold, silver or black-grey, you'll have to buy a case.

This has led to the iPhone XR being variously described as "cheap", "entry-level", or the "budget" iPhone for this year.
