Later sale date: While the iPhone XS devices go on sale September 21 (preorders start September 14), you won't be able to buy the iPhone XR until October 26 (preorders start October 19).

Here's the thing: Were it not for the iPhone X previous year, people would probably be talking about how the iPhone XR is the most expensive "regular" iPhone ever. The iPhone 7 now starts at £449/$449, and the 7 Plus at £569/$569.

Perhaps the most shocking news to come out of the iPhone event was that Apple has made a decision to kill off the iPhone X. "If you're a consumer, it's a no-brainer, you go with the iPhone XR".

Several users said the new devices sound like the iPhone "excess" and 'excess Max'. But remember, Apple used LCD screens up until last year's iPhone X, so longtime fans shouldn't feel the need to rebel.

Replacing the batteries in the iPhone X line will cost more than for other iPhones.

Connections-wise Gareth confirms there is no headphone port, but that a pair of Lightning connector earbuds come packed in the box.

The first one is about the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR and showcases all the important features of the handsets - displays, cameras and design. It starts at $749 for the 64 GB model and will cost more for its 128 GB and 256 GB models.

The phone has a single 12MP rear sensor, rather than the two on the XS and XS Max, while the front comes installed with a TrueDepth camera for facial unlocking and selfies. If you're an iPhone 6s devotee, you can still buy the devices through your carrier, or find refurbished versions online.

Both of these factors might explain Apple's thinking.

We just took a peek at the official accessory page, and all iPhone X cases by Apple are gone, as the phone has been discontinued, while the ones listed for the XS aren't cited as compatible with the X for the same reason. The XR has a 6.1-inch screen, which lands it right between the XS and XS Max in terms of size.

Price (duh): The iPhone XR isn't cheap, but it's not a $1,000 phone, either.
