Check out the official iPhone XS, XS Max and XR promo videos

You can preorder the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max in three different storage sizes.

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 lovely smartphone display in its own right. Apple doesn't release sales figures, but estimates from two analysts suggest the company shipped roughly 18 million of the gadgets in 2017.

The year-old phone was Apple's flagship product last year, and it was warmly received by critics.

With these changes astir, now might be the ideal time to pick up a discontinued iPhone before it falls out of circulation, especially if you're after a model with a headphone jack.

That being said, on its own he notes it "could be mistaken for the iPhone X of last year". The iPhone X was nowhere to be seen, along with the iPhone 6S and the smaller iPhone SE. The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display, A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup. It's a more affordable version of the XS, and it comes in a number of bright colors.

You could be an iPhone user in, say, Milan, where Apple just opened a glam new retail store a couple of months ago. There are still other important details we need to know about iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr, such as the clock frequency of the chipset. But it doesn't seem like Apple will be making any more. Why pay $US999 for the fantastic screen on the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max when you could effectively buy the same phone for $US100 less?

Still, this year's iPhone XS renders the iPhone X redundant - it has a almost identical design, with improved specs, at the same starting price point of $US999. Both factors that should conserve energy in comparison.
