  • Apple No More Adds A Headphone Dongle in its New iPhone Box

"Verizon's also got "$100 minimum trade-in" on several new iPhones when you've purchased said devices on the Verizon device payment plan.

The iPhone XS and XS Max will be available to pre-order on Friday September 14, and ship Friday September 21 in the USA and other countries.

Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 4 on Wednesday during a special product announcement event which included the highly anticipated iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the entry-level iPhone XR.

Apple's smartphones are really big, with price tags to match.

For wireless connectivity, iPhone XS offers 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 ac with MIMO, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC with reader mode, Global Positioning System with GLONASS.

"Apple has been intentionally testing the price elasticity of its products in the past few years, and what it found is customers have an appetite for more expensive iPhones", said Wayne Lam, an analyst at IHS Markit. They sound a little bit like the name of a fighting game or an anime. Perhaps, the most relevant among these is the ditching of the headphone dongle, which was previously a part of its iPhone pack. Although these prices are lower than those in Israel, it should be kept in mind that various states in the USA charge different purchase tax rates.

Let's be real: the only reason why we're making fun of these names is because a lot of us are going to buy them.

Jim Harbaugh after 21-7 Win Over MSU — Postgame Updates
Prior to their noon kickoff in East Lansing, Michigan linebacker Devin Bush was caught scuffing up the Spartans logo at midfield. It took awhile, but MI took down in-state rival MSU, 21-7, reclaiming the Paul Bunyan Trophy after a year away from Ann Arbor.

"The XS is one of the most conservative phone upgrades Apple has ever done", says Ars Technica. The Xr model will be launched in the USA on October 26, a little later than the other models, so it is expected to reach Israel only in November. It was a welcome change that made it feel as though Apple was starting to understand that wearables were a different category with a set of design demands apart from the Phone. Apple claims, that the second generation FaceID is more fast and accurate. The XS comes with a better chip under the hood and is more water-resistant, but for most people the differences will feel incremental. But the USA company has much at stake in China, its largest market after the United States as well as the main production base for the world's iPhones and iPads. Unfortunately, because the iPhone XS display takes up so much of the extra juice, the iPhone XS doesn't see any massive improvements in battery life in most cases. Intertwined with Apple's support for augmented reality, more AI power could mean your iPhone to enrich you with better experience and transformation.

The lower price of the XR may increase Apple's installed base of devices, spurring sales of accessories like the Apple Watch and digital services.

Preorders for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will begin in-stores on Friday, Sept. 21.

Apple announced some new phones today, and they've got real silly names.

A dongle is a device used to connect a pair of headphones into a new Apple device, as any pair of non-Apple headphones don't fit.

Do you think this is the end of the road for the iPhone SE2?

In the following countries, the Phone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available starting September 28: Georgia, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, India, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Andorra, Armenia, Bahrain, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Oman, Poland, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Malta, Monaco and Estonia.
