How to pre-order the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

It's surprising that Apple discontinued the iPhone SE, since it's only a 2-year-old phone, and Apple just gave it an upgrade last year. You should also know that Geekbench scores are to be taken with a pinch of salt for now so we'll update you guys if these scores remain constant once the latest iPhones have officially been released by Apple.

This deal is offered for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max. In Poland, someone who wants that same iPhone XS Max will have to pay $1,956 (compared to $1,449 here in the United States, of course). The company removed the headphone jack in its iPhones starting with the iPhone 7 and said that it believed the future of audio centered on wireless technology. The overall design is much the same. Further, the rear wide-angle lens, True Tone flash, and True Depth camera on the iPhone XR are identical to those found on the iPhone XS, so the only difference from a photography point of view appears to be the lack of the second telephoto lens. But it doesn't seem like Apple will be making any more. It makes little sense to jeopardize those high margins only a year after getting OLED screens onto the iPhone for the first time. The price for the iPhone XS starts at $999 for the 64 GB model and goes up from there for 256 GB and 512 GB.

Those reasons? The fact that Apple has likely put less RAM in to the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and the screen resolution is likely going to be less, too. "An extra 5 to 10 percent sales tax rate will be tacked on in the states depending where you reside, but at most, a USA resident is paying $1,099 for a base model iPhone XS with tax included. I don't think [discontinuation] will impact its resale value".
