Apple mulls naming new model ‘iPhone XS MAX’

Want to see the new iPhone XS? We’ve had our hands on it

This is a bit of a price reduction from last year's iPhone X, which launched at $999 for the 64GB model. Apart from the name, iPhone XS Max is also rumoured to have a bigger battery compared to iPhone XS. From the barrage of rumours that have made their presence felt in the past few months, it is anticipated that Apple will unveil three new variants - an iPhone X successor with a 5.8-inch OLED panel, a larger 6.5-inch model, and a cheaper 6.1-inch LCD model.

"A very small percentage of iPhone 8 devices contain logic boards with a manufacturing defect", according to Apple. That's because every year, Apple and its partners begin presales for the newest smartphones on the first Friday after the official iPhone press conference.

It wasn't included in last weeks leaks, as we mentioned, but graphic designer Gunho Lee mocked it up based on all the leaks we've seen so far. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be starting from Euro 909 (approx Rs 76,000) and Euro 1149 (approx Rs 96,000) respectively. Both devices would look like the iPhone X, notch and all. Another image published to Slashleaks appears to show a pink model.

Toronto FC’s Michael Bradley calls Nike’s Colin Kaepernick ad ‘incredible’
The ad arrives ahead of the NFL season, marked by controversy over the league's response to the protests inspired by Kaepernick. In November 2016, customers of sportswear brand New Balance burned their shoes in protest of its perceived support for Trump .

After announcing the phones on September 12, there's a strong chance Apple will open the pre-orders on September 14 and have them on sale by September 21.

KeyBanc analysts, who have a "hold" rating on the Barron's Next 50 company's shares, don't believe the underlying screen technology-whether, say, a phone uses a liquid crystal or organic light-emitting diode-based display-matters to buyers much. Apple Pencil support? There has been some talk about Apple adding support for its Apple Pencil stylus to the 6.5-inch version of the iPhone, however rumors surrounding the addition have seemed to cool off over the past couple of weeks.
