Apple iPhone Xs vs iPhone X: Here's what is different

Sadly, it's now time to hold a candle to the iPhone X as Apple has discontinued its "revolutionary" flagship for this year.

The new Apple Watch, and some of its new capabilities: low heart rate detection, ECG, and fall detection.

At the keynote, Apple showed its entire lineup of iPhone for 2018-19. On the iPhone Xs and iPhone XR though, users can simply wake their iPhone and tap the NFC tag against their phone. However, DigiTimes has a fairly good track record when it comes to forecasts, so we may see iPhone XR touching these figures by the end of the year.

The iPhone X was unveiled only past year and it went on sale in November 2017.

The base model of the iPhone XR costs $749 and it is available in the 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB internal storage models and it will be sold in the white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED colored flavors. Previously, iPhone models with NFC have required an NFC-compatible app to remain open in order for the handset to detect when it has come into contact with an NFC tag. However, the iPhone SE - Apple's only offering with a compact 4-inch display, also failed to make the cut to 2018 range. Both the 6S and SE were powered by the dual-core A9 chip. The iPhone SE was a high selling model in developing markets due its cheaper price.

Starting with the "latest" outgoing version of iPhones, the 64GB version of the iPhone X now sells at Rs 91,900 while the 256GB version sells at Rs 1,06,900 - a price cut of roughly Rs 4,000 and Rs 1,000, respectively.

The iPhone Xs has the same dimensions as the older phone but is 3 grams heavier with weight of 177 grams.
