iPhone Xs and iPhone XR Can Read NFC Tags in Background

Apple's new iPhone XS, pronounced "ten S", has a 5.8-inch (14.7-cm) screen, and will be sold at a starting price of $999.

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible.

Apple has remained mum about revelations planned for the event at its spaceship campus in Silicon Valley, but the timing fits its pattern of annually introducing iPhone updates.

Best yet, the aluminum-and-glass iPhone XR shows its colorful personality, coming in blue, yellow, coral and red (through Project Red), in addition to buttoned-up white and black. The iPhone XS Max is very similar but it's essentially a "Plus" version of iPhone XS complete with a stunning 6.5-inch OLED panel. In camera, iPhone features a 12 megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture size with wide angle lens. It has the same upgraded technology as the iPhone XS phones, and you can take Bokeh portrait shots with the help of software.

In China, the iPhone XS supports single-SIM while iPhone XS Max brings support for dual SIM.

While iPhone sales have slowed, Apple profits have risen along with the average purchase price of its handsets. The A12 is the first 7nm chip in the industry, and boasts a 15% increase in performance over the A11, with the A12 GPU gaining an increase of over 50% over the A11's GPU.

However, in order to qualify, you'll need to buy an iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max on an installment plan, which means you'll need to pay for it monthly over a set period of time you define with your carrier.

The new phone XS and XS Max will be available for pre-order from September 14 and will hit some markets like the United States on September 21.

To make way for the brand new iPhone Xr, Xs and Xs Max, Apple has discontinued the iPhone SE, 6S/6S Plus and even the 10th anniversary 'X, ' which only debuted last September.

Although this prediction is in line with the ones made before the phones were officially announced, shipping 40 million units in a couple of months seem like an arduous task.
