IPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr RAM and Geekbench scores surface

These Geekbench 4 tests are probably being run by people at Apple because the devices still identify themselves by their code name. While there was no reason given for the withdrawal of the model, it is evident that manufacturing costs for the iPhone X didn't drop enough over the last 10 months. The iPhone Xr is coming later than the other devices, and will be available to pre-order from October 19th, with the phone arriving a week after on October 26th.

Try searching for the iPhone X on Apple's website, and you're redirected to a landing page showing off the 2018 range of the iPhone XS Max, the iPhone XS, and the iPhone XR.

"The Apple Watch continues to improve and provide additional relevant functions". Its normal route is to dock the price of previous year's models by $US100 and continue selling them, which is what it did for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 this year.

With these changes astir, now might be the ideal time to pick up a discontinued iPhone before it falls out of circulation, especially if you're after a model with a headphone jack.

Exports of Swiss watches in the entry-price segment - a retail price of up to around $500 - have steadily declined over the past years, with competition from smartwatches one of the factors responsible.

Gruden had said leading up to Monday night's game that Mack "didn't want" to be in Oakland anymore. Monday's game was the first that the Rams' new defense played together competitively.

So if you want to listen to music with wired headphones on your fancy new $1,449 iPhone XS Max, you'll have to shell out an extra $9.00 for one of the clumsy, much-hated and all-too-frequently lost adapters.

Plus, the new iPhones already come at a steep price. The XS comes with a better chip under the hood and is more water-resistant, but for most people the differences will feel incremental. Case in point, US Mobile's sweet introductory iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR discount.

In terms of price, the iPhone XR retails for less than the iPhone XS, costing $749 to pick up at launch.

For any iPhone X owners anxious about whether the discontinuation will dent the resale value of their phone, the Forrester analyst Thomas Husson has some reassuring words.
