Note that the latter is practically at the Dh5,000 mark. We don't know what exactly the company has planned - but according to leaks- three new iPhones (iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Plus, and iPhone Xc) are expected to be announced alongside two new iPad Pro models. The 6.1-inch iPhone would also have the edge-to-edge screen and Face ID, the face-detecting security feature that replaces a fingerprint sensor. It should be noted that these are the beginning price points for each model, offered up with a base 64 GB of internal storage.

The middle one, meanwhile, is expected to sport an LED display, and will only have the first two storage capacities. So, there may be at least two dual SIM models.

Pricing wise, the iPhone 9 is expected to start at $799, followed by the iPhone XS at $899 and the XS Max at $999. And lastly, the 6.1-inch iPhone or iPhone XC is tipped to be priced $860, which is roughly around Rs 62,000. For ease though, I'm going to refer to it as the iPhone Xc throughout the rest of the piece. According to 9to5Mac, the slides give a price in Chinese Yuan for each of the three primary iterations of the successor to the iPhone X lineup, ranging from 5888 Yuan for the iPhone XC to 8388 for the iPhone XS Max.

Erdogan has warned against such a catastrophic outcome, and has much at stake in efforts to prevent it at the Tehran summit. Russia , an ally of President Bashar al-Assad's regime, on Tuesday resumed air strikes on Idlib after a 22-day pause.


You get the pattern, right? The button layout seems to lifted off straight from the iPhone X - a large power button on one side while the volume rocker and slider on the other end. So even those in the United States have to dole out additional dough for it. It even includes the "iPhone" name to save any confusion.

Apple isn't too precise about the system requirements, but says "recent versions" of Chrome and Firefox are supported. It could also drop the 3.5mm audio jack adaptor, yet another reason to bring costs down. Apple may be tempted to delay availability of the LCD version to gauge demand for the more expensive largest new iPhone, Goldman's Hall said. Definitely not the "affordable" iPhone X you may have been hoping for. While much of the world will still be surprised when Apple shows off its new iPhone models on stage at the Steve Jobs Theater later this week, those of us who track all the leaks each year know just about everything there is to know.

While the iPhone Xr is expected to be the cheapest iPhone of the year, it could still cost comparatively higher than the regular iPhone 8 from last year, though. Apple does not comment on speculation or rumours.
