Apple may replace Plus branding with Max on 6.5-inch iPhone Xs

Now, according to the popular website 9to5mac.com and a popular YouTube channel EverythingApplePro, the new high end iPhone will be called iPhone XS Max.

It is assumed that 6.5-inch flagship model will also appear the possibility of placing two apps at the same time. There will be a third model with a giant 6.5-inch OLED display. It may feature a design similar to the iPhone X. However, it will sport aluminum edges instead of the iPhone X's stainless steel casing. The iPhone XS will be priced starting at $899 (approx Rs 64,500) while the larger variant is expected to get the heftiest price tag of $999 (Rs 71,700). It would be highly illogical now to release an iPhone with an index of 9.

News outlet dedicated to publishing all things related to Apple, 9to5Mac, has posted the following images, which it claims is the real 2018 iPhones and shows the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models of the iPhone XS and iPhone CS Plus respectively. But it is going to ditch the "Plus" moniker this year. As far as optics go, the handset is rumoured to feature a dual-rear sensor and Apple will improve on low-light performance and image processing.

How much will they cost?

The iPhone XS Max will be the most expensive device while the iPhone XS would be priced in the same range as last year's iPhone 8 Plus.

A report from Bloomberg notes that the updated version of the iPhone X will arrive in two additional sizes.


With exactly a week left until Apple unveils its 2018 iPhones, we learned on Wednesday that the iPhone X Plus version that's finally coming this year will be called iPhone XS Max. The storage also stays at 512GB, while there is no information on the battery capacity as yet. Macerkopf said two different sources quoted the same prices.

The Apple smartphones only recently got an OLED screen and that is with the iPhone X thus if you are transitioning from a device older than the X then you honestly don't need the XS (unless you really want it). Lastly, we can expect a dual-SIM variant of the iPhone XS.

A third handset is likely to be named the iPhone 9, filling in the gap created with the announcement of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X a year ago.

All three models will drop the home button and, therefore, the TouchID scanning technology.

All three upcoming iPhones are expected to be powered by Apple's A12 chipset.
