Mainly, the newer phones of 2018 have come up with hardware upgrades with the design, looking much like the iPhone X. In addition, the company has even focused on durability, performance and nothing too much than this.

iPhone XS & iPhone XS Max

Though the world hasn’t got enough from the Apple’s iPhone X, the company has introduced its super cool successors.

This time, the iPhone XS Max has got the Plus Size and truly goes by the name, iPhone XS Max.

iPhone XS price India

At the Apple event 2018, aside from the iPhone XS & iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XR was another major highlight.

This year, Apple has made the choices a bit easier by introducing just one low-end variant known as the iPhone XR.

Here, you will get to see an LCD display just opposite the iPhone OLED One which we find on the iPhone XS.

Coming down towards the screen section, the XR comes with a less vibrant 6.1 inch LCD display.

Although the display is not that sharp still, it can compete with the iPhone XS to some good extent.

Which are the areas where the XR mainly lacks in?

Despite Apple being one of the most selling phones for a decade, the latest iPhone XR lacks in some areas. First of all, it comes with an LCD display which is not that sharp and can look blemish from different angles.

Further, it comes with just a single camera set-up and the lack of 3D touch is a sheer mood spoiler.

Talking about the pricing, it starts from a price of $749 for the 64GB variant from October 19.
