Apple quietly discontinues four older versions of iPhone

£100 price drop on iPhone 7 & iPhone 8 – no more iPhone X, SE and 6

Huawei troll Apple, suggesting their upcoming Mate 20 will be more innovative and more intelligent

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, released in 2015, have seen a price drop as well. Being part of an "S" upgrade cycle, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max borrow the design language from last year's iPhone X and get slightly bumped up internals, cameras, and a new Gold colour option.

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were unveiled in 2015 and it was evident Apple would kill the handset sooner or later.

The iPhone XR starts at $749, £749 and AU$1,229 for the 64GB version. "Background reading will work with any NDEF formatted tag", according to the Apple developer portal.

Apple also introduced a lower-cost 6.1-inch (15.5 cm) iPhone XR made of aluminum, at a starting price at $749, and will be available in the U.S. from October 26. The iPhone XR has been replaced as a low-priced LCD alternative to the duo.

Apple's new iPhone lineup features the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.


Specs: It is the cheapest device that has been launched yesterday. iPhone XR packs a 6.1 inch LCD display with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels.

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible.

Therefore, if you were in love with the smaller 4-inch compact form factor or don't want to part with the headphone jack on an iPhone, you can try your luck with the SE and 6S till stocks last.

The operating system will also allow people to designate "down time" when iPhones or iPads can't be used - perhaps a child's bedtime or a grown-up's meditation hour.

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