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.

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.
