They boast better battery life, and offer dual SIM support. iPhone XS starts at $999, the iPhone XS Max starts at $1,099. Both are shipping on Sept. 21.
The XR is bigger and cheaper than the iPhone X, It too incorporates the A12 Bionic chip, the same (single) wide-angle camera as the XS models, and the same AI-driven camera features.
The new devices meant a price drops on the existing iPhones, with the iPhone 7 now starting at $449 (N163,000).
