Apple 2018 Event Recap: iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, Apple Watch

Poll results iPhone 9 would've been the best name for the “affordable” iPhone Apple's $29 iPhone battery replacements will cost $69 after December

The first phone to introduce the dongle was the iPhone 7, in which the 3.5mm headphone jack was ditched in favor of the proprietary Lightning cable.

The new iPhone XR's release date is pencilled in for September 21, with pre-orders going live on September 14. The new range now comes with a fullscreen display and FaceID as standard - this was introduced by the trendsetting iPhone X past year.

While there are some compromises compared to the iPhone XS - which showed during our brief hands-on time with the phone - the XR's strong core hardware specs and more everyday price signal the sea change in Apple's strategy.

From the look of things, the iPhone11,8 identifier appears to be the iPhone XR because it sports 3GB of RAM and previous rumors have also stated that the LCD-based version of the 2018 family will have 1GB of memory less than the remaining two models.

Predictably, folks on Twitter did not greet the news favorably.

The two phones are nearly identical in design and features, with the XS being a refinement of last year's phone.

The first one is about the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR and showcases all the important features of the handsets - displays, cameras and design.

Gareth does note though that the camera system also supports Smart HDR, which allows the iPhone XR to "really capture the high-end elements of a photo, fusing the light and dark elements well", and that the pictures he took were clear, sharp and colourful.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive. Apple gave us cryptic guidance like "it lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus".

Since the Apple Watch launched in April 2015, most people haven't figured that they need one. The iPhone SE was a high selling model in developing markets due its cheaper price. With the iPhone XR, which comes in yellow, coral, blue and red as well as black and white, the color is already baked into the phone (but you'll probably want a clear case for your glass-backed phone anyway). But beware that if you're planning to buy an iPhone 8, it won't come with a dongle, either.
