However, in order to keep a strong foothold in the premium segment and increase the accessibility, they have toned down the XS to shape it in the form of iPhone XR. The display, however, is an LCD IPS panel which was used on the older iPhone 8.
Others pointed out that it was a missed opportunity, arguing that the firm should have called its XS Max - which has the biggest iPhone display yet - the iPhone XL.

The latest iPhone models are just getting more expensive.
The iPhone XR has debuted with a 6.1in screen and a brand new all-screen liquid retina display ("the most colour accurate in the industry") along with an all-new advanced single camera system. And it doesn't have 3D Touch, Apple's technology that typically shows users more options or information if they press down on an app icon or menu option.
The iPhone XR will be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED for $749. With no Home Button, the XR supports tap to wake, swipe up to the home screen, swipe down to access notifications and the Control Centre. Meanwhile, the iPhone XS will cost the same as last year's iPhone X ($999). The new 12 megapixel cameras have bigger sensors and an improved HDR mode.More news: Paul Manafort may have struck a deal with Robert Mueller
The iPhone XS models unveiled Wednesday come with an "eSIM" feature that supports two cellular services and easier switching between carriers, but that technology won't be available in China, Hong Kong, and Macau.
There's still some mystery around the XR's modem. And yes, the notch and FaceID remain omnipresent in the new iPhone devices, including the iPhone XS Max. Well, as the name suggest its an electronic or an embedded SIM, which has no physical part to it. (I couldn't test it because it wasn't activated on the phones in the demo room.) In general, our carriers have banned dual-SIM phones in the past; the most successful so far have been OnePlus phones, which haven't been sold through carriers. Apple's dual SIM solution, in the U.S., would enable someone to use AT&T, Verizon, or T-Mobile (but not Sprint) as their primary carrier while using any carrier that offers a SIM card as the secondary carrier. Despite being all glass and steel, the iPhone XS Max isn't slippery at all. The iPhone XR will be coming to India in October, with sales starting from 26th October.
With LCD display, iPhone XR delivers lesser resolution 1792x828-pixel resolution at 326 ppi and 1400:1 contrast ratio.More news: Hurricane Florence has weakened but it will still be devastating
