How to upgrade to the iPhone XS

Here's How Xiaomi Mocked Apple For Steep Pricing Of New iPhones

The new iPhone XS and XS Max flaunt faster cellular modems than the iPhone X, and it shows in testing. At the same time, any wireless charging improvements should be minor, given that Apple wouldn't offer any sort of comparison to last year's model.

Apple's opening weekend pre-orders for the iPhone XS, XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 are now done and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has some insight as to what's hot and what's not. Spoiler: It's not that much faster. The XS has a 5.8-inch screen, and starts at $999 while the XS Max, the largest iPhone to date has a 6.5-inch screen, with a base price of $1,099.

USA TODAY's Ed Baig gives his take on some of the pros and cons of Apple's new iPhones XS, XS Max and XR.

Apple CEO Tim Cook explained in an interview with NIkkei Asian Review this week, 'We understand that there is a wide range of what customers are looking for and a wide range of prices that people will pay'.

If you head over to Xiaomi China's official store (via XDA-Developers) you'll see three new bundles unsubtly named the XS, XS Max, and XR sets.

For a device as expensive as the iPhone Xs Max, you'd think that Apple would be a little generous so as to bundle some freebies, but it looks like that is not going to happen.

Accordingly, citing "lackluster demand", Kuo in his note moved to decrease his former iPhone XS shipping estimates - dropping them to between 10 and 15 percent of all new iPhone models shipped, from his previous estimate of between 15 and 20 percent.

A bright spot in an otherwise low-key upgrade is the dual SIM support, a feature that the company's much-touted iPhone X did not have.
