Apple quietly discontinues four older versions of iPhone

Dubbed the iPhone XR, the new model sits in between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in size, and features a 6.1-inch advanced LCD screen that the company is calling its "Liquid Retina" display. The company said the new iPhones would start at USD 750, USD 1,000 and USD 1,100. iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, September 14 and in stores beginning Friday, September 21.

The iPhone XS will cost you €1,179, the iPhoneXR, the price will be €879, and the iPhone XSMax, which is the most expensive, will set you back €1,279.

The last one is a dig at Apple's new colours this year suggesting that aside from the colours everything is the same.

ESPN on Monday broke the story that Kaepernick would be featured in the 30th anniversary of Nike's "Just Do It" campaign . While Stills and Watson were kneeling during the anthem, teammate Robert Quinn raised his fist.

Moreover, the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will support Dolby Vision alongside traditional HDR10 - two types of HDR formats that will make binge-watching your favourite shows even better.

Battery replacement for an out-of-warranty iPhone in the X line - which includes the original 2017 iPhone X - will cost $69 next year, the site noted after Wednesday's unveiling of the newest iPhones.

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

And that's not the last of the bad news that Apple are about to give to your wallet. However, with the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, only the display needs to be illuminated (locked or unlocked) to trigger a notification on your phone prompting you to perform the action from the tag.

The iPhone XR starts at $749, £749 and AU$1,229 for the 64GB version. As for the iPhone11,6 identifier, this appears to be the iPhone Xs thanks to the 4GB of RAM detailed in the specifications list.

As such, Gareth concludes that providing you don't want loads of advanced features, no "bells and whistles", then the camera system on the iPhone XR "will do you just fine". You can pick from in silver, space grey, and a new polished gold color.
