Apple teased by Xiaomi for over-the-top pricing of iPhones

Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR will soon be available on the Airtel online store. Details on whether there will be launch offers as well, is unclear at this point.

Now, instead of an iPhone XS Max with base storage, you can have the Mi 8 smartphone (6GB/128GB), the Mi notebook Pro (presumably the more affordable one with an MX150 GPU, it's not specified), the Mi Band 3 (of course), and a pair of neckband-style Bluetooth earbuds.

It might sound like 2012, but Apple has finally introduced dual SIM card support for its 2018 iPhone lineup - iPhone XR, XS and XS Max. "Or, get $100+ w/select trade-in." find the iPhone Xs deal on Verizon.com.

Sprint: Get iPhone XS Free with Trade-in Scheme - Another tempting deal comes from Big Four-carrier offering unlimited service plan that costs at least $60 each month.

Francis appointed Baltimore Bishop William Lori to take over Bransfield's Wheeling-Charleston diocese temporarily. The delegation of US bishops announced no plans to speak to the media after their audience.

The other aspect of the news is that any new iPhone XS buyers will already have a huge market of cases to choose from without having to wait for third-party case manufacturers to get their act together, launching special iPhone XS cases. This is priced at CNY 6,699 (approx Rs 91,300) which resembles iPhone XS 64GB's pricing.

Apple says apps will launch up to 40 percent faster on the iPhone 6S, for instance, and you'll be able to open the camera up to 70 percent faster.

"They have finally added a larger-screen phone so that they can directly compete with the Galaxy Note 9 products", Gartner analyst Annette Zimmermann said at the event at Apple's Silicon Valley headquarters, referring to rival Samsung Electronics which has led the trend toward big-screen phones. The 512GB version of the iPhone XS will be available at a price of Rs 1,34,900.
