IPhone XR Portrait Mode has one serious limitation

IPhone XR Portrait Mode has one serious limitation

What seems to have become customary with the latest iPhones, Apple hiked the prices of the new devices and since there's a new variant with a massive screen, the price tags also got bigger.

When the iPhone SE came out in the spring of 2016, it was a big deal because, even though the phone wasn't particularly innovative, the idea of a new, purpose-built midrange device from Apple that started at just £350 was more than a welcome idea.

So if you want to listen to music with wired headphones on your fancy new $1,449 iPhone XS Max, you'll have to shell out an extra $9.00 for one of the clumsy, much-hated and all-too-frequently lost adapters. Or would the late Apple co-founder have conceded to change and increased the size of the iPhone display?

The investors reasoned that doing so would pose no threat to Apple, because the company makes the bulk of its money selling devices, not from how much people use them.

Earlier this week, Trump called his government's response to the historic Puerto Rican disaster an " unsung success ". Roy Cooper and Wilmington, North Carolina, Mayor Bill Saffo to "just (let) them know, we know how it feels".

Design-wise TechRadar's Gareth Beavis says that next to the iPhone XS the new iPhone XR is "not quite as attractive", pointing out its thicker bezels and drawing your attention to the fact that its edges aren't made out of the same premium-feeling materials. Beginning with an image of what is similar to the invite Apple sent out for their even overnight the implication is that the runner breaks out from the circle to then head to see what Huawei the "innovators" have in store for us in London.

Those devices, plus the iPhone X, are no longer available through Apple's website. On the new Apple handsets, for instance, Apple is charging $199 or $9.99 per month for 24 months for AppleCare+. That said, the iPhone XS / XS Max, as well as the iPhone XR can record stereo sounds. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, will sell at Rs 69,900 for the 64GB variant and Rs ₹84,900 for the 256GB variant. So, with that in mind, the company has announced that pre-orders for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will begin this coming Friday, September 14.

Also making it onto an iPhone for the first time, is the availability of a smacking 512GB storage option! Until his death in 2011, Apple only ever produced one model of the iPhone each year. Side by side, the iPhone XR screen looks duller and less pin-sharp.
