Apple says new iOS will help battle smartphone addiction

Nichole VegaSep 13, 2018

This, of course, means that consumers will have to fork out extra money to be able to used wired earphones/headphones with their brand new (and rather pricey) iPhones.

"The company tends to price in such a way that demand is spread across the lineup", they said, adding that the more aggressive push toward Face ID is a possible foreshadowing of more Apple Pay developments next year.

Apple has added the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR to its battery support page and revealed 2019 prices for replacing batteries in older iPhone models.

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible.

The iPhone XS Max is $1,099 for 64 GB, $1,249 for 256 GB, and $1,449 for 512 GB. Techradar's Apple iPhone XR hands on can be enjoyed in full, at a time that suits you, right now. Now, with different price points, the addition and removal of certain features on certain devices, and the death of the headphone jack for good, it feels like Apple doesn't care whether or not consumers actually like what's happening to their smartphones. The iPhone XR is the cheapest device with the 6.1 LCD screen with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels.

This is the new iPhone for "regular folks" who don't see their iPhone as a status symbol or sweat details like a stainless steel body or 512GB of storage for photos and videos. With Apple killing it, the iPhone X becomes the shortest living iPhone that Apple has ever introduced.

Single rear camera lens instead of two: This is a big one. Buyers can head to offline Apple stores to directly buy the new devices from September 21st. The base storage on the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 8 Plus remains the same at 64GB. So, with that in mind, the company has announced that pre-orders for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will begin this coming Friday, September 14. However, given Apple's iPhone X released a year ago and the fact that the price started at $999.00, the attached price-tag is one of the most important factors of any Apple release.

As such, Gareth concludes that providing you don't want loads of advanced features, no "bells and whistles", then the camera system on the iPhone XR "will do you just fine".
