Apple says new iOS will help battle smartphone addiction

Similarly, battery replacement for the freshly-announced iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR will cost $69 once those phones lose their warranties beginning next year.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive.

Best yet, the aluminum-and-glass iPhone XR shows its colorful personality, coming in blue, yellow, coral and red (through Project Red), in addition to buttoned-up white and black.

We got to test the phone out in person, and reckon the display (which lands right in the middle, size-wise, of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max) might not reach the dizzying heights of OLED, but it remains a handsome smartphone display in its own right.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, released in 2015, have seen a price drop as well.

Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood said they were working to find out how all the people involved are connected, if at all. Investigators said they will also look at body camera footage from the deputy who confronted the shooter.

Carl Court/GettyEveryone who bought an iPhone X in November was probably an Apple superfan. However, given Apple's iPhone X released a year ago and the fact that the price started at $999.00, the attached price-tag is one of the most important factors of any Apple release. The A12 Bionic is faster and more efficient than before and packs Apple's own GPU as well as an improved neural engine.

Eliminating the headphone jack is also a noteworthy move. But for now, you can aw at the ability to adjust depth-of-field, after having taken a photo. Apple's calling it "Depth Control". Both boast a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera, both come with the facial recognition feature Face ID. However, they will not be able to read NFC tags in the background after a fresh reboot, while an Apple Pay session is ongoing, or the phone is in Airplane mode. It has the same upgraded technology as the iPhone XS phones, and you can take Bokeh portrait shots with the help of software.

The Beats Solo3 Wireless on-ear headphones, priced at $299.95 United States dollars, incorporates Apple's W1 chip for easy one-step Bluetooth connection, while featuring adjustable cushioned, pivoting ear cups.

iPhone XS and XS Max will be available for pre-orders starting at 3:01 pm on September 14, Friday.
