Apple may replace Plus branding with Max on 6.5-inch iPhone Xs

Apple may replace Plus branding with Max on 6.5-inch iPhone Xs

Speculations were rife that the upgraded 5.8-inch model of the iPhone X might be launched by it's predecessors's eponymous iPhone Xs.

Some Apple customers with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s models were having battery issues.

We are mere days away from Apple's next special event.

Amongst other industry scuttlebutt, the phones are tipped to have OLED displays and a new A12 chip designed in-house specifically for the iPhone.

Assuming 9to5Mac's report was accurate, and assuming Apple doesn't come up with a quick name change, we could suffer people on social media and elsewhere making the same jokes about the iPhone's name for the next year and beyond. There might also a third iPhone with LCD Panel and dual-SIM support.

Both the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 9 cases have similar vertical cutouts for the rear camera.

We've been expecting the iPhone 9 to cost around the same as the iPhone 8, starting at $699.

Booker releases Kavanaugh emails on racial profiling
Booker focused on a document he said described Kavanaugh's views as a White House aide under former President George W. Majority Republicans can confirm Kavanaugh without any Democratic votes, though they'll have little margin for error.

According to Music Magpie's data, the iPhone X has depreciated the least among all iPhones, at least when taken as a raw percentage.

The fix program does not include iPhone 8 Plus models, or any other models experiencing similar issues.

Just like the iPhone X, the iPhone XS will feature the Secure Enclave hardware-based key manager and Face ID biometric authentication.

If it follows the pattern of the iPhone X set before it, the iPhone XS will be offered in Space Grey and Silver.

What accessories are available for the iPhone XS?

No accessories have been announced for the iPhone XS, but they will probably be unveiled following the official launch. But with about a week left before Apple's event, there's still time to make this phone the "iPhone 11" - or, at least, not the XS.

It is assumed these prices are for the baseline models of each model specified.
