How to pre-order the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

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.

Based on the global pricing for Apple's newly announced handsets, the general historical pattern is again holding true, whereby Apple's smartphones are generally more affordable (relatively speaking) here in the U.S. than they are overseas.

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

When Apple released the iPhone X previous year, it was widely considered the best smartphone the company had ever made, marking a major step forward with features like Face ID and a high-end camera to rival the Huawei P20 Pro and the Google Pixel 2. So good that I've pretty much stopped using my DSLR because it's so much easier to bust my iPhone out of my pocket. The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display, A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup. The exclusion of these older models also omits the 3.5mm headphone jack for once and all from the iPhone lineup. It's a more affordable version of the XS, and it comes in a number of bright colors.

Those reasons? The fact that Apple has likely put less RAM in to the iPhone XR compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and the screen resolution is likely going to be less, too.

The introduction of the iPhone XS and XR also sees off the original X, SE, and iPhone 6, which are no longer available directly from Apple.

Both of these factors might explain Apple's thinking. In Russia, for example, you could snag a 64GB iPhone XS for $1,292, slightly below the $1,380 iPhone X launch price that same Russian customer would have paid.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive.
