After launching iPhone XR and iPhone XS premium phones, Apple India has dropped the price of its older smartphones, including iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus.

Apple has been working to ramp up revenue from services and digital content such as music and movies, but most of the cash it takes in comes from iPhone sales.

Apple is also introducing Dual SIM capabilites to its 2018 iPhone lineup, incorporating Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) and eSIM technology to allow users to provision a second phone number - even on a different carrier and have both lines simultaneously active for receiving calls. Build it, and they will come: and pay for it too.

We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive. Both boast a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera, both come with the facial recognition feature Face ID. All other details are same as that of the iPhone XS.

The bigger question is whether you consider the iPhone XR's $750 a reasonable price for a new iPhone that isn't its top flagship.

An iOS 12 mobile operating system that will power new iPhones unveiled on Wednesday, and be pushed out as an update to prior models, has new features to reduce how much they distract people from the real world. Chinese users however, will be able to actually use two physical SIMs with the new phones. As is availability and release date.

Throughout 2018, the company is running a $29 battery replacement program, but this ends December 31. iPhone X users stand to save the most, since their replacement cost will jump from $29 to $69 next year.

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

Apple has already revealed what kind of price increase we're in for once the calendar hops over to 2019. For those who are interested in the lower-priced iPhone XR complete with LCD panel, pre-orders will begin on October 19th.
