Apple Launches iPhone Xs and Xs Max; Read All The Specifications here

With the announcement of the new iPhones, Apple has slashed the prices of two of the older models and discontinued the others, including the iPhone X that was released just a year ago.

CEO Tim Cook showed off the iPhone XS Max, which has a bigger screen than the one on last year's dramatically designed model, the iPhone X. It'll cost about $1,100, topping the iPhone X, which at $1,000 seemed jaw-dropping at the time. The XS Max, the largest iPhone to date and one of the biggest on the market, has a 6.5-inch (16.5-cm) screen, and starts at $1,099.

The news was met with instant ridicule across social media, as Twitter users likened it to everything from energy drinks to commentary on its "excessive" cost. Furthermore, the Xr model lacks 3D Touch, but instead, incorporates a "Haptic Touch", which Apple is marketing, as a long-press is accompanied with haptic feedback. Although the iPhone XS and XS Max will be available in Gold Color variants, which will make them look different. Both the Xs and Xs Max are fitted with a dual 12-megapixel camera arrangement, dual-SIM support and can be equipped with up to 512GB of storage.

Apple has remained mum about revelations planned for the event at its spaceship campus in Silicon Valley, but the timing fits its pattern of annually introducing iPhone updates. The cellular model will be available in stores starting September 21 in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Puerto Rico, Switzerland and the UK. More importantly, Apple kicked off a one-year iPhone battery replacement program that reduced the fix fee from $79 to $29.
