Apple ditches free headphone adapter with new iPhones

Apple ditches free headphone adapter with new iPhones

Although the iPhone X didn't fulfil analysts' lofty sales expectations, it fared well enough for Apple to up the ante with the bigger model, whose price is expected to unveil Wednesday.

Apple unveiled three new versions of the iPhone today, with some new capabilities under the hood and some fun apps and games that will move the smartphone wars ahead another step.

That's according to The Verge and All Things How, which both dug into the Apple website's product sitemap XML file - the code powering the website - and found several direct references to the three devices.

The phones are updates to last year's iPhone X (10), which was released to mark the 10th anniversary of the smartphone.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will support dual SIM and dual standby functionality.

The other difference in the iPhone XR and XS is the camera set up.

Apple is notorious for running a tight ship with few product leaks, though there are a handful of notable examples where that hasn't been the case.

Remember when Apple past year announced a wireless charging pad that could simultaneously power an iPhone, smartwatch and AirPods?

Biggest and most-expensive ever: iPhone Xs Max ($1,099).

Even if you're not springing for a new iPhone, customers will be able to download iOS 12 starting Monday September 17. iOS 12 features new Animojis, customized Memoji and a much-anticipated time management feature to help people use their devices less.

To hear the technology experts tell it, Apple's iPhone event on Wednesday was a snooze fest. The last time Apple went bold with colours was with the iPhone 5C.

The biggest aesthetic shakeup is that the iPhone XR will arrive in no less than six new technicolour finishes, including blue, yellow and red.

The core new characteristic of the new watch is the larger screen which now achieves a higher screen-to-body ratio on the watch.

The rear sports a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera with improved two-tone flash. As far as the processor is concerned, the iPhone XR is powered by the same A12 Bionic chipset.

The devices don't have a home button and feature Face ID in lieu of a Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

Battery life is very important to many consumers, and we'll be testing the new phones once they arrive in the lab. But it is still selling its old 4.7-inch iPhone 7 for $449 and the iPhone 8 for $599, both of which are slightly shorter and thinner than the new lineup. With a price tag of Rs 76,900, this could be the most compelling iPhone buy of the year. It starts at $749 for a 64GB version, and there are also 128GB and 256GB versions.
