The biggest announcements from Apple's iPhone Xs event

Consumers planning to buy one of the newly introduced iPhone models will also soon be able to order Beats headphones and earbuds with a matching color.

Apple posted a video on YouTube titled "Shot on iPhone XS" that gives us a taste of what video on the iPhone XS actually looks like. It is worth noting that Apple has reportedly discontinued select handsets including iPhone X, iPhone 6S and iPhone SE in the US.

At the keynote, Apple showed its entire lineup of iPhone for 2018-19. For all that huge screen on the iPhone X, the case isn't truly that much bigger than that of the iPhone SE.

Apple also introduced a lower-cost 6.1-inch (15.5 cm) iPhone XR made of aluminium, starting at $749. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera. Usually the new iPhone reaches Doha on the same day through grey market but will be priced exorbitantly higher than actual price.




Sam's Club is offering a $100 gift card to members who purchase an iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max next week.

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

Apple on Wednesday announced that they had stopped selling the iPhone 6 series and Android users won't let iPhone lovers be. The base level iPhone is now the iPhone 7 with a 4.7-inch display, A10 Fusion chip, water proofing and stereo speaker setup.
