Apple has finally revealed the iPhones for its 2018-2019 lineup, and it turns out what we have expected. The company unveiled three new variants, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. Where the iPhone XS Max is the expensive one in the lineup having the most aspiring hardware support, the iPhone XS is just another smaller screen XS Max, and iPhone XR is the cheaper one in the line. However, all the three new smartphones are inspired by the company’s iPhone X launched last year. It seems like Apple has taken the firm decision to skip iPhone 9 and nourish the iPhone X family going forward.

However, this is not the first time when Apple has gone down for a cheaper model of iPhone. Previously the company also launched iPhone 5C and iPhone SE that didn't go well. The primary reason behind the end of the cheaper models was the basic design and too low specs.

This time the iPhone XR not only shares some high-end features but also inherits the premium look and design of the top-end iPhone variants. Apple has put the tag of $749 on iPhone XR and skimmed some of the features like chipset, smaller battery and LCD screen instead of OLED to justify the price.

iPhone XS and, iPhone XS Max

Talking about the iPhone X and iPhone XS Max, Apple tried to take the smartphone to the next level like every year. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max come with 5.8inch and 6.5 inch OLED HDR screens respectively, having the super retinal display. Both have given the tempting 12MP dual camera at the back powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip.

Besides, both the iPhones will be available in three storage options including 64/128/256 GB. Apple has made both the iPhone XS and XS Max dual SIM supportable via eSIM technology. Apple also claims that the Face ID works even faster to unlock the iPhones in these variants. Both the model has a larger battery, iPhone XS supposed to last 30 min longer than iPhone X and XS Max to last 1.5 hours longer than the X.
