Company also announces a cheaper alternative, the iPhone XR, at California event
Apple will release the iPhone XS, a faster version of its flagship X, later this month. The company also announced the iPhone XR, a cheaper alternative that replaces the expensive OLED screen with LCD technology, and a larger version of the XS, the XS Max, at its launch event in California.
The iPhone XS, which the company say should be pronounced “Ten Ess” – will cost $999 for the basic 64GB version. Other than the option of acquiring the device in gold, the phone looks largely identical to its predecessor, but features the now-standard array of internal improvements, including a better camera, faster processor, and more internal storage, with an upper limit of 512GB.
