Right Apple. Justify the new iPhone XS and XR pricing. Bet you can't

The newly-announced iPhone XR could matter more for Apple in two year's time than it does right now.

A dongle is a device used to connect a pair of headphones into a new Apple device, as any pair of non-Apple headphones don't fit. On the iPhone Xs and iPhone XR though, users can simply wake their iPhone and tap the NFC tag against their phone.

Activist investor Jana Partners and the California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS), which both have stakes in Apple, early this year called on the company to give parents more tools to ensure children are using its devices in ways that aren't hurting them. The accessory is now available in "Satin Gold" and "Satin Silver", both of which can be purchased at Apple's website starting today. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera. In camera, iPhone features a 12 megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture size with wide angle lens.

What about the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE? The four-core GPU also boasts up to 50 percent faster performance. It's a more affordable version of the XS, and it comes in a number of bright colors.


- Taking on Galaxy - Samsung, the world's biggest smartphone maker, last month unveiled its latest flagship handset, the Galaxy Note 9, and next month Apple rival Google will hold an event at which it is likely to showcase new Android-powered top-end Pixel phones.

The new phone XS and XS Max will be available for pre-order from September 14 and will hit some markets like the USA on September 21.
