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 carrier will let you save up to $700 on your second iPhone when you purchase an iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, XS, or XS Max on a device payment plan and activate a new line of service. It packs a 5.8 inch Super Retina OLED display with the resolution of 1125×2234 pixels.

But this year, Apple unsurprisingly decided the iPhone X design was the way of the future. Even though the Xr will likely be more than enough iPhone for most customers, the iPhone X proved that there are loads of people out there willing to pay $999 and up for a truly premium device. As for the iPhone11,6 identifier, this appears to be the iPhone Xs thanks to the 4GB of RAM detailed in the specifications list.

Apple took to the stage yesterday to unveil its brand new lineup of iPhones.

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.

It consumes less power by running 40-50% more efficiently, performance is 15% faster and app launch speed gets a 30% boost.

This time though, Apple has upgraded the certification to IP68, which makes the new iPhones even more resistible to dust and liquid conditions. It also packs the same Apple A12 Bionic with 6 cores along with 3GB RAM.

Getting rid of the headphone jack also allows newer iPhones to be thinner by a few millimeters.

The iPhone XR gets a single 12MP sensor that's used as the primary sensor in XS models. With Apple killing it, the iPhone X becomes the shortest living iPhone that Apple has ever introduced. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 starts at £599/$599 and the 8 Plus is reduced to £699/$699.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max go on sale September 21.

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.
