IPhone Xr release - The hidden feature Apple didn't tell you about

The iPhone XS will be available in Singapore at 8AM tomorrow (21 September). Meanwhile, the iPhone Xs Max 128GB comes in at £1,099 and the 512GB version costs a mammoth £1,499 - the most expensive mainstream smartphone around by some margin.

Reviews of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are starting to flood in, and while the phones get top marks across the board, there's one other common theme in most reviews: Just wait until the iPhone XR comes out.

4GB of RAM, while being sort of the norm in the world of Android smartphones, is a big leap for the iPhone.

Soon after the new Apple iPhones were launched, one of the most-discussed issues was the pricing of the new phones. The iPhone Xs Max offers a much bigger boost in the battery department, with a 3,174mAh offering. The iPhone XR only has a 828p display, with a resolution of 1792×828. But that's for a phone priced at $699, well below either the iPhone XS Max or the $999 iPhone XS.

You don't need to buy the latest gadget to get most of these upgrades.

Now that the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR have gone official, some lingering questions about the amount of RAM, LTE speeds and battery capacity that Apple chooses not to reveal during the event are now slowly surfacing. You are looking forward to exploring all the new features and capabilities it brings and the pure joy of unboxing a device you will use every single day of your life.

As for Indian prices and availability, the iPhone XR starts at Rs 76,900 for 64GB storage variant and goes all the way up ti Rs 91,900 for 256GB storage variant.

"The iPhone XS Max design is deceptive". At this stage, when the best iPhone costs $1,000 or more, I'd fully expect it to come with a set of essential accessories that make the most of the device they're accessorizing. Sure, the two latter phones may have better performance and features but the iPhone XR provides enough juice to sustain the needs of users.

The iPhone had been excluded from an earlier list of products that would be subject to the new tariffs, but there was no clarification on the status of other devices in Apple's portfolio. It was followed by the iPhone XS with 11,420 points and last year's iPhone X with 10,357 points.
