Here’s everything we know about the newly launched iPhone XR, XS, XS Max (PHOTOS).


Today September 12th, Apple launched it’s first set smartphones for the year ending all rumors and specifications. At, we decided not to continue spreading rumors until the official launch of the product. This year’s launch was quite spectacular as Apple streamed the event live on Twitter and Apple TV given everyone unrestricted access to the global launch of it’s latest devices. The wait is finally over and now is the time to share everything we know about the three latest members of the iPhone family.

As you already know, Apple launched three new devices, two of them (the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max ) are high end flagships while the third one (the iPhone XR) is a midrange phone with a touch of class. The names are quite confusing I must tell you but after a little while I’m sure you will get used to it just like I’ve done.

Apple calls the iPhone XR a budget smartphone but as far as I’m concerned there’s nothing “budget” about it considering fact that it comes with a price tag of $749 (N270,000 Approx.).. It shares almost the same specs as the higher end XS and XS MAX models.
