The Apple Watch is inching toward becoming a medical device

iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max Will Feature 10W Fast Wireless Charging, Here Are The Best Qi Chargers For The Upcoming Smartphone

Perhaps the most shocking news to come out of the iPhone event was that Apple has chose to kill off the iPhone X. But it's not much of a surprise - when Apple announced its new smartwatch operating system in June, the Edition and original Apple Watch were not included in the list of devices eligible for the update.

Apple's new iPhone lineup features the iPhone Xs, Xs Max, Xr, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.

Based on the global pricing for Apple's newly announced handsets, the general historical pattern is again holding true, whereby Apple's smartphones are generally more affordable (relatively speaking) here in the U.S. than they are overseas.

That's still more than the iPhone SE, however, which sold for $399, making it the cheapest iPhone the firm had sold.

Many believed that Apple was set to release a refreshed iPhone SE 2, as it looks to reach more low-end consumers. It was smaller and more lightweight than other iPhones, too, still sporting the well-regarded iPhone 5 design.

Specs: It is the cheapest device that has been launched yesterday. iPhone XR packs a 6.1 inch LCD display with a resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels. In Japan, the iPhone XS costs equivalent to $1,008, just a smidgen above U.S. pricing, excluding tax.

The removal of the iPhone SE also isn't terribly surprising, as Apple is billing the iPhone Xr as its "budget" device (no matter it still carries a $749 price tag), plus it offers the iPhone 7 for $449. You can also get the iPhone XS Max 64GB for $134 per month with the same inclusions.

Apple's third new iPhone this year, the XR, hits stores October 26.

Not all of Apple's phone launches have gone smoothly.

Here are all the devices Apple just discontinued. During last year's iPhone X launch, Apple's app didn't work for about 10 minutes after preorders began.

Apple, which became the US' first trillion-dollar company in August, has been soaring over the past few years, largely thanks to the success of the iPhone.

Still, this year's iPhone XS renders the iPhone X redundant - it has a almost identical design, with improved specs, at the same starting price point of $US999. Apple sold nearly twelve times as many iPhones - 216 million - that year.

Up until Wednesday, Apple was selling the iPhone 6s for $US450, and the iPhone 6s Plus for $US550.
