Will my old iPhone X case fit the new iPhone XS?

Will my old iPhone X case fit the new iPhone XS?

In what sure seems like a blatant bit of nickel-and-diming, Apple will no longer include a free 3.5-mm headphone jack conversion dongle with the new iPhones it announced on Wednesday. The first has a 5.8-inch AMOLED panel, the second has a 6.5-inch AMOLED display (the biggest screen ever seen on an Apple phone) and the third is in the middle with a 6.1-inch display and the LCD technology. Unlike the last three generations, this one gets not only under the hood changes but also a design update allowing a larger display to fit in and an ECG sensor to be crammed up inside.

People getting into watches thanks to an Apple product were more likely to buy a Swiss timepiece later on, he said in e-mailed comments.

The iPhone XR surprisingly includes numerous same capabilities as the iPhone XS, with the most significant differences being the LCD display and a single-lens camera system. If anything, analysts have been disappointed that the iPhone XR is so "cheap" because they're anxious it might cannibalize iPhone XS sales. Gareth recons that the lower price will make the iPhone XR the best selling new iPhone revealed this year. Both boast a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera.

Aluminum vs. steel: Stainless steel sides hug the pricier iPhones, but the iPhone XR is made with an aluminum frame, like many other phones on the market.

The new iPhone XR's release date is pencilled in for September 21, with pre-orders going live on September 14.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive.

Introduced when Apple first launched its smartwatch in 2015, the super-premium Apple Watch Edition came with an 18-karat gold case and started at $US10,000. If you want a 2018 iPhone (and not the iPhone 8, 8 Plus or iPhone 7), you can keep a little more money in the bank.
