Over 50 million iPhone X smartphones have been shipped worldwide

The new Apple iPhone XR, XS Max smartphones are "Sexist" women are claiming. While the priciest iPhone now exceeds $1,100, a year-old phone like the iPhone 8 will set you back a more manageable $600.

One of the most distinct difference are the available color options, with six colorways for the iPhone XR and just three standard color variants for the iPhone XS, but the two most significant differences between these two iPhones are the display and and body frame (or chassis). Apple's phones are too large for women's pockets.

That, for those who don't hang of every world that a black turtle-necked geek says, includes the one that they only bloody launched past year, the last time that we all got ourselves into a similar tizz.

Apple has shared its first TV-length ad for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max ahead of the official release of the handsets on Friday, September 21.

Yesterday, Apple introduced the largest screen to ever adorn an iPhone, the 6.5-inch OLED panel that you will find on the iPhone XS Max.




Apple vice president Phil Schiller, who made the announcements, said that the latest models were "a huge step forward for the future of the smartphone". Apple iPhone XR features a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display with 326 ppi. 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. There are 12MP dual rear cameras with OIS, 2x optical zoom, and quad-LED flash. The XR is powered by the same A12 Bionic chip as the pricier models and has the same Face ID facial recognition, and even manages to pack in portrait mode capabilities, albeit off a 12-MP single camera setup.

It is positioning the new watch as a more comprehensive health device, able to take an electrocardiogram (ECG) to detect an irregular heartbeat and start an emergency call automatically if it detects a user falling down, potentially appealing to older customers. IDC's Reith was also quoted as saying that the LCD panel has been in production for some time now, but the "quality wasn't hitting what they needed". Like $30 a month for the iPhone XS through T-Mobile.

But is it going to be a good year for Apple in Singapore?

If we don't see the gadget this year, it would be the latest missed deadline on the product front.

Despite Huawei just having a bit of fun at the moment, the company has not had a stellar year when it comes to accomplishing its goal of entering the US market. It could signal Apple is giving up on the low-priced Indian market to just sell on the higher end.
