Apple quietly discontinues four older versions of iPhone

Apple has been working to ramp up revenue from services and digital content such as music and movies, but most of the cash it takes in comes from iPhone sales.

Removing the 3.5mm audio dongle means that users of the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR will either have to use Bluetooth earphones, or headphones with Lightning connectors to be able to listen to music (or watch videos) in private. Now, the operator won't sell you the handset itself, and the $400 markdown actually represents a combined 24 monthly bill credits.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, released in 2015, have seen a price drop as well. There's the same A12 bionic chip, Face ID with the front-facing TrueDepth camera as well as a bunch more color options (yellow, coral, white, black and blue). But remember, Apple used LCD screens up until last year's iPhone X, so longtime fans shouldn't feel the need to rebel.

I know her smile. "But she doesn't stray too far from her technique, she's very formulaic with her routine", said Martin. The 37-year-old has hard time publicly dealing with the strained relationship with her father Thomas Markle .

Here are all the Apple devices that have received price cut after iPhone XR and iPhone XS launch. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the high-end mobile devices having a 5.8 inch and 6.5 inch OLED super retina displays. In camera, iPhone features a 12 megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture size with wide angle lens. For all that huge screen on the iPhone X, the case isn't truly that much bigger than that of the iPhone SE. Sadly, it's now time to hold a candle to the iPhone X as Apple has discontinued its "revolutionary" flagship for this year. While there was no reason given for the withdrawal of the model, it is evident that manufacturing costs for the iPhone X didn't drop enough over the last 10 months. Build it, and they will come: and pay for it too.

Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19). 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.

At the keynote, Apple showed its entire lineup of iPhone for 2018-19.
