By the time we were binging over the iPhone X and other versions, Apple decided to come up with a whole new series of iPhone including the all new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. It’s been a while since the tech giant is working on the series and created buzz in the whole industry. And while the first two versions are supposedly the upgraded versions of iPhone X and will be somehow replacing the iPhone 8 and 8 plus, the XR version is going to make the buying decision tough for all Apple users. So while most of you must be eager to grab the latest version of the iPhones, choosing the right one among the new releases might be a daunting task, looking at the amazing features & UI, you’re sure to go crazy over each release of the iPhones. Don’t worry, we’ve put this guide together for you to help you make the right pick. Here you’ll find how, when, and where to buy the latest iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR.

Apple Unlocked

 

As expected, users can buy the latest iPhone XS and XS Max from Apple Unlocked. But before going into the main details, let’s check out the pricing structure of these two upgrades:

 

  • IPhone XS 64 GB: $ 1000 or $ 49.91 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
  • IPhone XS 256 GB: $ 1,150 or $ 56.16 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
  • IPhone XS 512 GB: $ 1,350 or $ 64.50 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
  • IPhone XS Max 64 GB: $ 1,100 or $ 54.08 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
  • IPhone XS Max 256 GB: $ 1,250 or $ 60.33 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
  • IPhone XS Max 512 GB: $ 1,450 or $ 68.66 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.

 

Along with the Apple iPhone XS and XS Max, the company also unveiled another surprise model which is relatively cheaper than iPhone XS but also does away with some features included in the XS version. However, XR is yet to hit the markets but pre-ordering will hopefully start from October 19 onwards. Also, it’s hard to predict if the XR version will be available on Apple Unlocked, given that the site contains only carrier options.

The pricing structure for the Apple iPhone XR series goes like this:

 

  • IPhone XR 64 GB: $ 749 or $ 37.41 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
  • IPhone XR 128 GB: $ 799 or $ 39.50 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.
  • IPhone XR 256 GB: $ 899 or $ 43.66 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program.

The latest versions are not likely to be only available at Unlocked. We can expect the new devices to soon be available on online shopping websites and communities such as Amazon, Flipkart, Best Buy, etc.

 

Apple iPhone XR: The New Replacement for iPhone 8

Apple iPhone 8 had the smallest screen available at the lowest price range, it now offers you the latest XR with the second biggest display at the lowest price range offered by the tech giant. However, this could create two possible problems for the iPhone buyers: size and the pricing.

 

 

The iPhone XR features a leviathan 6.1 inch display screen in a footprint which beats the screen size of the iPhone XS, which is supposedly the smallest Apple smartphone this year. Also, the price difference between XS and XR is a whooping amount of about 320 dollars (INR 23,000) for the base model. So for someone looking for a small-screen iPhone will have to bear the extra price which would vary according to the model of the XS or XR series. This could be a point where we can say that Apple is, in a way, forcing its customers into switching models.

This also means that if you have plans to have a smaller-screened iPhone, then you’ll have to stick to the previous iPhone 8 or be ready to pay the extra price and buy XS since the iPhone X is known to be discontinued (it has already been removed from the official Apple website).

 

Why should you buy the iPhone XR Then?

Talking about Apple phones, XR is the most affordable of them all. You can own an Apple iPhone with the latest features and updated iOS in less than a 1000 USD! It comes with a liquid retina display which is the advanced LCD in the industry along with a power pack breakthrough camera system. It also has an intelligent A12 Bionic which is the most powerful chip in any smartphone and advanced Face ID to level up the security in Apple iPhones.

Here’s a detailed list of the features you’ll be getting in the all new iPhone XR:

The XR is for everyone from a novice who someone who is buying an iPhone for the very first time, a game player, tech savvy, basic iPhone buyer, someone who loves watching videos, to a professional. However, if you’re someone in search for the best camera, then XS or XS Max would be a better choice as they have the best hardware in the front.

 

Apple iPhone XS: The Smallest iPhone for the Year 2018

Yes, you heard that right! The iPhone XS is this year’s smallest iPhone with a display screen of 5.8 inches. It’s a great buy for all those with almost ‘normal-sized hands’ for ease in handling the device. Provided, you are able to digest the amount!!

Although, it isn’t a good buy to grab an XS since we already have XR having almost the same features except for the dual camera. It also has an AMOLED Display which might excite the ones who love binging on HDR content, but the XS Max and XR will be able to give them a better experience!

So, then why iPhone XS?

Well, it can definitely be a suitable choice for those who are happy with smaller screens but want the updated iPhone. Also, not to forget that XS has the best hardware Apple has in store for you for this year! The iPhone XS also gives you greater storage capacity (which isn’t really available with XR since it tops out at 256 GB) and extremely good camera quality which is going to be the perfect choice for professionals, camera enthusiasts, and people looking forward to the best Apple experience!

Apple iPhone XS Max: The Biggest Phone Ever

The XS versions are both extreme ends. While the iPhone XS is the smallest phone this year, XS Max comes with the biggest mobile screen Apple has ever offered its users. The 6.5 inch iPhone XS Max is back with a notch and sans home button after almost a year as the most expensive iPhone in Apple’s stable.

Other than the screen, the bigger benefit is its battery life. Apple is proud to announce that the new XS Max out wins the iPhone X’s endurance by 90 minutes. However, if you compare the XS Max with any of the Apple iPhone Plus Series, there wouldn’t be much difference. As for the customers in India, they’ll be paying roughly INR 40,000 premium in taxes and duties making it a pretty heavy deal for them!

 

Who should you buy the iPhone XS Max?

It’s definitely a good buy for those who have got tired of the thick bezels in the iPhone 8 plus since they will get more screen space with the iPhone XS Max (thanks to its hulking screen!). Also for those who love to binge on movies and HDR videos on their phones or even gaming for that matter, the iPhone XS Max is the best choice. Other users who may get benefited from the latest XS Max are the professionals who like to see their email threads more often, work on excel reports, and more.
