IPhone battery replacement price hike is coming: Here’s what it’ll cost

Poll results iPhone 9 would've been the best name for the “affordable” iPhone

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

The features in Apple's Watch 4, pricing for which starts at $399, include everything from the ability to do an electrocardiogram on yourself to a sensor that detects hard falls and even automatically calls 911.

The pricey iPhones disturbed fans so much so, that Apple stocks started plummeting after the launch event. The tech giant revealed plans to charge you $69 when you try to replace an iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, or iPhone XR battery when you're out of warranty and don't have AppleCare+. Buyers can head to offline Apple stores to directly buy the new devices from September 21st. Further, the rear wide-angle lens, True Tone flash, and True Depth camera on the iPhone XR are identical to those found on the iPhone XS, so the only difference from a photography point of view appears to be the lack of the second telephoto lens.

Gareth does warn though that "we've been burned by iPhones not lasting as well as we'd like in the past", and reiterates that proper testing will be needed to evaluate how good the iPhone XR's battery is. The firm expects the replacement cycle to be delayed following Apple's recent efforts to extend the life of old devices.

The iPhone XR is a device that sits in the middle of the two in terms of screen size and well, colorful new options!

Not only has Portrait Mode been improved this time around, but with the inclusion of Neural Engine into image processing, Apple claims that the iPhone XS / XS Max will process the photos faster and more accurately. But even back then, several Android models, including the popular Motorola DROID X and its 4.3-inch display, carried larger screens than the one on the iPhone.

Also, HDR has been removed, and upgraded to being a more "Smart HDR". What Apple took away, however, was an affordable way to enter its smartphone ecosystem.

The company "is positioned to sustain mid-single digit sales and low- to mid-teens EPS growth in a flattish iPhone volume growth environment".

Verizon is also offering $100 off any iPad with a device payment plan or $50 off an Apple Watch on a device payment plan.

Users who have an iPhone 6, 6S, 5S or SE can still install Apple's latest software update, iOS 12, which is due to arrive on September 17th.

"Apple, once again, has shown their mastery of pricing tiers, which will extract more revenue per customer". The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display, A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup. The cuts to estimates are partially offset by a higher unit forecast.
