Five things you need to know about Apple's new iPhone X series & how to get them

Apple have dabbled into cheaper iPhones before, with the iPhone SE and iPhone 5C, but their designs stood apart from the mainstream iPhones, and they didn't last.

On Thursday, September 13, 2018 Apple announced the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. It has been reported that these three new iPhones for 2018 will officially be replacing the iPhone X, which Apple pulled from its store after the announcement.
..
Below are ten things no one is telling you about the new Apple products.
..

1. The XR introduces a profound shift in Apple's strategy

Its safe to say Apple turned its "bargain" phone into the premium iPhone mix. The company have dabbled into cheaper iPhones before, with the iPhone SE and iPhone 5C, but their designs stood apart from the mainstream iPhones, and they didn't last.

2. The various prices

..
The iPhone XR starts at $799 (about N290k) for the lowest storage capacity, the iPhone XS starts at $999 (N362k) - and like last year's iPhone X, the XS Max's 64GB model costs $1,099 (N399k). The prices rise from there depending on the phone's internal storage. Instead of Apple's most advanced phone breaking the $1,000 ceiling, two of these new iPhones now start at a grand or more. This is Apple's way of testing people's willingness to splurge on a high-end phone.
