The Apple A12 Bionic which includes two high-performance cores that worker 15 percent faster than the Apple A11 chipset and four power-efficiency cores that consumes 50 percent less power than A11. The phone has a glass body and aluminium frame and it is IP67 certified against water and dust.

T-Mobile made a couple of announcements on the heels of the iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, and Apple Watch Series 4 launch on Wednesday, quickly confirming all four devices would be sold by the "Un-carrier", then detailing the full pricing structure and officially kicking off pre-orders at 12:01 am PT earlier today.

Sprint, on the other hand, is offering a completely free 18-month lease with a qualifying trade-in, which means that iPhone 7 users could upgrade to a brand-new iPhone XS without actually spending any money. The iPhone Xs sports a 5.8-inch OLED panel, while the 6.5-inch OLED screen makes the iPhone Xs Max Apple's largest smartphone ever.

Apple also announced the iPhone XR during the presentation. Both devices have stereo audio output, a dual-camera system, True Tone displays, and Face ID security that lets you unlock your phone just by looking at it. The phones are available in the 64GB, 256GB, or 512GB capacities. The price for the iPhone XS starts at $999 for the 64 GB model and goes up from there for 256 GB and 512 GB.

The bigger question is whether you consider the iPhone XR's $750 a reasonable price for a new iPhone that isn't its top flagship. As for our personal preference, we'd definitely get the iPhone XR because it is not just cheap, but it gets the best features of iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, and it is available in a wider array of colours. It might be for some, but not for us.

For example, you can pay for an iPhone XS and receive an iPhone 8 free of charge.
