Apple's $29 iPhone battery replacements will cost $69 after December

  • Apple No Longer Bundles 3.5mm Audio Dongle With New iPhones

Back in 2010, Apple's co-founder said that there were no large screen iPhone models because "no one's going to buy that".

As such, Gareth concludes that providing you don't want loads of advanced features, no "bells and whistles", then the camera system on the iPhone XR "will do you just fine".

On Wednesday, Apple announced its latest updates to the iPhone and Apple Watch, adding three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch to its catalog of devices.

Discovered first by Let's Go Digital (via BGR), the benchmarks suggest that both the flagship iPhone Xs Max and the cheaper iPhone XR will deliver performance not available on any other smartphone. "Background reading will work with any NDEF formatted tag", according to the Apple developer portal.

Did you know they were called dongles? The new Apple Watch Series 4, starting at $399, is $70 more expensive than the previous Series 3 version, and the LTE version will run you an extra $100 if you're into paying the premium (along with a data connection) for your wearable. Third-party developers are expected to take advantage of this addition and possibly add creative solutions to their apps and website experience on the iPhone. But remember, Apple used LCD screens up until last year's iPhone X, so longtime fans shouldn't feel the need to rebel.

"Through December 31, 2018, the out-of-warranty battery service fee is $29 for all eligible iPhone 6 or later models", Apple wrote on the page.


Today, we are compiling all the details of the new iPhone devices that have been launched.

iPhone 8 64GB which was earlier priced at Rs 67,940 is now available at a lower price of Rs 59,900.

The A11 Bionic chipset in the iPhone X performed impressively against the competition, and the A12 Bionic is even more powerful.

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR will be in stores by the end of September, and they will not come cheap.

Apple has reduced the price of iPhone 7 32GB from Rs 52,370 to Rs 39,900. iPhone 7 128GB also sees a big price drop from Rs 61,560 to Rs 49,900.

The rear cameras in the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max have the same resolution as the iPhone X's dual lens camera, but that's all they have in common here.
