The New $1,449 iPhone Won't Include A Free Headphone Dongle

Apple is expected to ship 127 million iPhones, new and old, in the second half of 2018, achieving a modest volume growth over the same period a year ago.

Here's the theory: If Apple followed its protocol and offered the $999 iPhone XS as well as a phone that is nearly exactly the same but $100 cheaper, it would most likely confuse customers and cannibalize sales.

Yesterday Apple announced the iPhone XR, a lower-cost new iPhone that sits beneath the American maker's new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max flagships.

The iPhone Xs Max (iPhone 11,6) impresses even further in Geekbench tests, thanks to that extra gigabyte of RAM. However, DigiTimes has a fairly good track record when it comes to forecasts, so we may see iPhone XR touching these figures by the end of the year. Our colleague Gareth Beavis over at T3's sister site TechRadar has had some serious hands-on time with the iPhone XR and these are his thoughts.

Predictably, folks on Twitter did not greet the news favorably. Side by side, the iPhone XR screen looks duller and less pin-sharp. It has a lower-resolution 6.1-inch LCD screen and a single rear-facing camera, but otherwise delivers on the specifications of the Xs series. If anything, analysts have been disappointed that the iPhone XR is so "cheap" because they're anxious it might cannibalize iPhone XS sales. It was smaller and more lightweight than other iPhones, too, still sporting the well-regarded iPhone 5 design.

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.

Throughout 2018, the company is running a $29 battery replacement program, but this ends December 31. iPhone X users stand to save the most, since their replacement cost will jump from $29 to $69 next year. Apple gave us cryptic guidance like "it lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus".

Introduced when Apple first launched its smartwatch in 2015, the super-premium Apple Watch Edition came with an 18-karat gold case and started at $US10,000.

The XR is also the first iPhone in years to be sold in a variety of colors, including red, coral, yellow and blue.

iPhone owners will have to pony up extra cash if they want to buy a dongle.

Price (duh): The iPhone XR isn't cheap, but it's not a $1,000 phone, either.
