Apple's $29 iPhone battery replacements will cost $69 after December

Share

The iPhone XR is the cheapest device with the 6.1 LCD screen with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive. We have colors people; White, Black, Blue, Coral, Yellow and (PRODUCT) RED.

The iPhone XR has a larger screen than the iPhone XS and the same A12 Bionic processor as the iPhone XS Max (which costs hundreds more).

In other words, Apple isn't treating the iPhone XR as some shabby relation.

The iPhone XR starts at $749, £749 and AU$1,229 for the 64GB version.

To make way for the brand new iPhone Xr, Xs and Xs Max, Apple has discontinued the iPhone SE, 6S/6S Plus and even the 10th anniversary 'X, ' which only debuted last September. Both, again, are industry-leading and will be more than competitive two years from now.

Replacing the batteries in the iPhone X line will cost more than for other iPhones.

Eliminating the headphone jack is also a noteworthy move.

So, if you've got a phone with what you suspect is a dying battery, it's probably a good idea to take it into an Apple Store for repairs before December 31, 2018. Apple's calling it "Depth Control".

The new Neural Engine in the A12 allows for real-time machine learning processing, which will allow apps like the Camera to enhance Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting features, mapping facial muscles in Animojigs during a live FaceTime call, and of course improved and more powerful Augmented Reality applications.

A dongle is a device used to connect a pair of headphones into a new Apple device, as any pair of non-Apple headphones don't fit. The four-core GPU also boasts up to 50 percent faster performance.

As for the iPhone XR, the TrueDepth camera remains the same, but on the rear, you find a single 12MP wide-angle lens - the same planted into the iPhone XS / XS Max offering all the goodies packed into the iPhone XS / XS Max, such as Smart HDR, Portrait Lighting, but sadly no Depth Control. So, with that in mind, the company has announced that pre-orders for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will begin this coming Friday, September 14.

The next one is about the new Apple Watch Series 4.
