Apple released three new iPhones to the world tonight, including the most expensive iPhone ever and a cheaper budget option. The three phones can be ordered from the middle of September and will only arrive in Belgium a few weeks later. You must know this before you place an order.
Tonight, Apple unveiled the new generation of iPhones for the first time. It is about the flagship iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max on the one hand and the cheaper iPhone Xr on the other. We list the specifications, prices and ordering data below for you.
iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max
The iPhone Xs is equipped with an OLED screen with a screen diagonal of 5.8 inches (14.7 centimetres), while the OLED screen of the iPhone Xs Max will measure no less than 6.5 inches (16.5 centimetres).
The phones seem like two drops of water on their predecessor, the iPhone X, but have received some minor updates. For example, the huge iPhone Xs Max would last an hour and a half longer with normal use due to the gigantic battery. The iPhone Xs lasts a modest half hour longer than the iPhone X.
Both run on a new processor, the A12, which makes the devices even faster. At the back is a double 12 MP camera, while Apple at the front on a camera of 7 MP. In addition, the phones next to the silver and the ‘space’ gray now also come in a gold version.
For the iPhone Xs you count 1,159 euros for the standard version with 64 GB. The model with 256 GB costs 1,329 euros, while the model with 512 GB will cost you 1,559 euros.
The iPhone Xs Max takes things a step further. For the 64 GB version you pay 1.259 euros, for the 256 GB version already 1.429 euros and for the expensive model with 512 GB you will have to cough up 1.659 euros.
Ordering can be done on the Apple website from September 14 at clock time 9.01. One week later, the phones in the US should already be on the shelves. When they arrive in Belgium afterwards, it is not certain. CEO Rik Vrancken of Switch Apple Premium Reseller states that this may take some time. “Normally it will take about two to three weeks after that, until the aircraft arrive in our country,” says the CEO. “Moreover, in the beginning it is a limited edition.”
The iPhone Xr is the third phone that Apple proposed, and the cheapest of the trio. The device has a 6.1-inch (15.5 centimeter) LCD screen and an aluminum and glass frame. At the back there is a 12 MP camera, and the Xr also runs on an A12 processor. The iPhone Xr gets the most colors: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red.
The iPhone Xr is available from 859 euros for 64 GB of storage space. Unlike the Xs or Xs Max, there is also a version with 128 GB that will cost you 919 euros. For the model with 256 GB you count 1.029 euros. There is currently no model with 512 GB of storage space.
Unlike the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, you can only order the iPhone Xr from October 19 at 9:01 am. It is also not certain that all colors are immediately available.
