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

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

A Deccan Chronical report points out that when Apple showed its entire lineup of iPhones for the year 2018-19, the range began with iPhone 7, followed by 8, 8 Plus and the newly launched flagships.

Compared to the Apple A11 chipset that powers the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the hexa-core A12 offers almost 33.3 percent increased performance, doubled GPU score, 50 percent improvement in UX score and around 20 percent improvement in memory score because of which the iPhone XS has managed to achieve such an impressive benchmarking score. The XS and XS Max both have dual 12 MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras, while the XR has a lowly 12 MP lens - solo, no wide-angle, no telephoto. Haselton, however, added that the phone is not recommended for iPhone X owners, as the XS merely represents an "incremental" upgrade over the previous model. The iPhone XR won't be available until October 26, with preorders opening up one week before that. The XS Max's specifications and features are similar to those of the XS, except for the larger screen and the extra hour of battery life. Customers can choose how much they want to pay upfront, how much they want to spread the remaining cost of their device from anywhere between three and 36 months (in one-month increments) and their airtime tariff. The device comes in five color options and has a base price of $749. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max respectively feature 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch AMOLED screens.

The biggest iPhone ever has been announced and the XS Max is now available for pre-order.

Now, according to a new report by The Verge, IDC has claimed delay in Apple iPhone XR shipments could be due to a hardware issue.
