Apple's greatest magic trick: A $749 iPhone is now "cheap"

Similarly, battery replacement for the freshly-announced iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR will cost $69 once those phones lose their warranties beginning next year.

While unveiling its new devices, Apple usually does not reveal all the important details of their specs sheet, and the same applies to this year's iPhones as well - iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr.

These smartphones are also running iOS 12, but iOS 12 has not officially launched right now, so it could be the developer's preview installed on the iPhone 8 Plus.

The new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR haven't been released yet, but a handful of Geekbench scores are already available.

Pope Summons Bishops For Sexual Abuse Summit
The meeting, scheduled for February 21-24, would assemble more than 100 churchmen to represent every bishops' conference. This comes as an archbishop accuses the Pope of covering up sexual abuse allegations against an American cardinal .

The urBeats will be out later this fall, probably around the same time the iPhone XR launches.

Predictably, the move to charge extra for the dongle generated some criticism on Twitter. The iPhone XR surprisingly includes numerous same capabilities as the iPhone XS, with the most significant differences being the LCD display and a single-lens camera system.

The two phones are nearly identical in design and features, with the XS being a refinement of last year's phone.

Screen technology: The 6.1-inch screen is just fine on its own, but it has a much lower screen resolution than either iPhone XS and uses an LCD display instead of OLED.

Gareth does note though that the camera system also supports Smart HDR, which allows the iPhone XR to "really capture the high-end elements of a photo, fusing the light and dark elements well", and that the pictures he took were clear, sharp and colourful.

The phone has a single 12MP rear sensor, rather than the two on the XS and XS Max, while the front comes installed with a TrueDepth camera for facial unlocking and selfies. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 starts at £599/$599 and the 8 Plus is reduced to £699/$699. Specifically, we're getting yellow, blue, and coral.

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

This has led to the iPhone XR being variously described as "cheap", "entry-level", or the "budget" iPhone for this year.
