Apple mulls naming new model ‘iPhone XS MAX’

Apple mulls naming new model ‘iPhone XS MAX’

With the iPhone X, Apple changed how it distributed review units to journalists. The $999 phone was the first iPhone to throw away the home button and feature front that was almost all-screen in design. Of course, you could also buy directly from Apple, but expect to pay full price unless you trade in an old phone.

As per the report, the LCD iPhone will cost $699 (approx Rs 50,000) while the iPhone XS will be priced around $800 (approx Rs 64,660) and the iPhone XS Max will come with the $999 (approx Rs 71,853) price tag similar to the iPhone X. Of course, you should expect the Indian pricing to be way higher than what the conversion rate shows.

The bezel less, notched phone that we saw with the iPhone X previous year is dominant in all three phones andthe home button has gone to meet its maker. However, the pricier 5.8- and 6.5-inch models could be available in a new gold finish. According to Bloomberg, the 6.1-inch device will have an LCD display instead of using the iPhone X's OLED display tech. The dummy phones appear to have a glass back and an aluminum frame.

Let's get the pricing out of the way first because this is what potential new iPhone buyers would like to know more than anything else. A dual-SIM phone would be very helpful for worldwide business travelers. The same report compared Apple's approach to the iPhone 5C with its bright colors. And for those who prefer a smaller handset, will we finally get an update to the ageing-but-likeable iPhone SE? Others expect steeper prices. A lot, ranging from probable prices for the next-generation iPhones to their design language and specifications, have been revealed in recent leaks, and more are flowing in. According to 9to5Mac, the next Apple Watch will contain 384×480 pixels within its display, up from the current 312×390.

Apple's 2018 lineup of iPhones is going to be unveiled one week from today, which means that the last round of rumors is starting to meander onto the internet.

In June 2018 at Apple's WWDC developer keynote, the company announced that the newest version of the iPhone's software, iOS 12, would release in the fall. Nonetheless, we will know for sure at the company's upcoming event next week.

They are also believed to ship with a Lightning to USB-C dongle. The ability to do group video calls via FaceTime is one such feature, allowing 32 people to chat in one space. However, the latest leaks confirm the iPhone XS Plus to be called iPhone XS Max. After creating your character, users can send their face to friends when texting.

What else could Apple announce?

With less than a week to go until Apple's next iPhone event it appears that most of the secrets are out. We will wait and see before we jump on any comments.
