Apple says new iOS will help battle smartphone addiction

Apple says new iOS will help battle smartphone addiction

While there are some compromises compared to the iPhone XS - which showed during our brief hands-on time with the phone - the XR's strong core hardware specs and more everyday price signal the sea change in Apple's strategy.

If you're willing to deal with smaller prepaid operators, you can typically save even more while not having to jump through as many hoops.

Arguably the most notable new product: the iPhone Xr delivers iPhone X style with a price cut and some caveats. Now, the operator won't sell you the handset itself, and the $400 markdown actually represents a combined 24 monthly bill credits.

Apple first signaled the end of the headphone jack in 2016, when it introduced the iPhone 7, which features a lightning connector. Assuming you get one of the models, you'll also be able to pick up a matching pair of Beats starting this fall season.

Apple debuted the 6S in late 2015 and the device quickly gained in popularity.

The new iPhone XS, pronounced "ten S" has a 5.8-inch (14.7-cm) screen, and starts at $999. Below you can check iPhone XS, XS Max and XR price in China along with specs, features and all other details.

Consumers planning to buy one of the newly introduced iPhone models will also soon be able to order Beats headphones and earbuds with a matching color.

We know that at the heart of the new phones - including the iPhone XR surprisingly - is Apple's new A12 Bionic processor and improved LTE chips to promote a faster LTE connection.

When your phone arrives with us, we'll issue a check that you'll receive in around a week.

Those devices, plus the iPhone X, are no longer available through Apple's website.
