Apple's cheaper iPhone XR rocks bright colours

Apple A12 Bionic chip is third 7nm for phones

Apple A12 Bionic chip is third 7nm for phones

Looking at the very first iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR Geekbench scores hitting the web today, it seems clear that Apple's 2018 iPhones will have absolutely no match from any of the Android vendors in terms of performance this year or even in 2019, thanks to Apple's super-fast A12 Bionic chip.

The latest version of the Apple Watch will add features that allow it to take high-quality heart readings and detect falls.

Here's the theory: If Apple followed its protocol and offered the $999 iPhone XS as well as a phone that is nearly exactly the same but $100 cheaper, it would most likely confuse customers and cannibalize sales.

One more thing. Although largely unrelated, the keynote opening clio was pretty darn good so it deserves an honorable mention as well. Although there's only one 12-megapixel camera on the XR's glass backing, some software work with iOS 12 means you don't sacrifice portrait mode shots.

Battery replacement for an out-of-warranty iPhone in the X line - which includes the original 2017 iPhone X - will cost $69 next year, the site noted after Wednesday's unveiling of the newest iPhones.

Gareth is very clear in his summation of the iPhone XR's camera system, which he states is "the weakest of the three phones" just announced by the American maker. People storing albums upon albums of home movies will prefer the 512GB option that the iPhone XS and XS Max offer. Its normal route is to dock the price of previous year's models by $100 and continue selling them, which is what it did for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 this year. It was smaller and more lightweight than other iPhones, too, still sporting the well-regarded iPhone 5 design.

Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19). Let us know your views in the comment section below!

Colorful identity: If you want your iPhone XS to be any color than gold, silver or black-grey, you'll have to buy a case.

The XR is also the first iPhone in years to be sold in a variety of colors, including red, coral, yellow and blue.
