Apple’s budget-friendly iPhone Xr will start at $749

The new iPhone XS Max's body shares similar dimensions to the iPhone 8 Plus, but the newer phone's screen at 6.5 inches diagonally is a full one-inch larger than last year's big iPhone and costs £100 more than the iPhone XS. What's remarkable is that it's very rare when the cheapest iPhone of the year catches the maximum attention.

The iPhone Xr will come in white, black, blue, coral, yellow, and Product Red.

The XR's screen has an 828 x 1792 resolution for a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, while the iPhone 8 has a resolution of 750 x 1334 but matches the iPhone XR's pixel density.

The iPhone XR could spur Apple customers to finally upgrade.

Prior to Apple's official unveiling of the iPhone X a year ago, many analysts expected its anticipated revamped design to spark a massive upgrade cycle.

That's where the new iPhone XR comes in.

Screen size. Like the iPhone X before it, the Xs Max uses an organic liquid crystal display, which are renowned for richer colors, while putting less stress on the battery.

The phone has the same TrueDepth Face ID camera (and notch) on the front as the iPhone XS.

They are available in gold, silver and space grey. However, this is a more elegant design and the iPhone XR is one good looking smartphone.

The Max is the Xs' bigger brother. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera. The app uses the phone's video camera to track each shot and record "makes" and "misses".

If confirmed, the 6.5in iPhone XS Max is expected to be the company's most expensive to date, surpassing the £999 iPhone X introduced this time previous year. It is also running on the new 7nm A12 Bionic Chip and it retains the same 12MP f/1.8 main camera that's assisted with OIS.

Apple gadgets were always pricier in Europe and overseas.

It starts at $749 in the United States, £749 in the United Kingdom for the 64GB version.

The Apple Watch series 4 will be available for pre-order this Friday, and you'll be able to get it starting next Friday, September 21. (For a while, we used the icky word "phablet"- for part-phone part-tablet - to describe them.) But now Apple's largest bests even Samsung's Note 9, which measures 6.4 inches. Overall I found the new Apple Watch 4 a lot more attractive than its predecessors - though it's still a quite steep price point. In 2016, the price of the iPhone 7 Plus topped out at $969. However, it's early to give a verdict on it but our hunch is that Apple might just have a victor on its hands with the iPhone XR.
