RIP iPhone: Apple discontinues its flagships

The firm has completely revamped its iPhone lineup and, in the process, has decided some older models no longer make the cut.

Apple's new iPhone XS, pronounced "ten S", has a 5.8-inch (14.7-cm) screen, and will be sold at a starting price of $999. The exclusion of these older models also omits the 3.5mm headphone jack for once and all from the iPhone lineup.

Dutch blog Let's Go Digital dug up Geekbench scores for Apple's new smartphones and they are in line with previous leaks, suggesting both phones will deliver performance not available on other mobile devices. The A12 Bionic is faster and more efficient than before and packs Apple's own GPU as well as an improved neural engine. The iPhone XR has been replaced as a low-priced LCD alternative to the duo.

What about the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE?

He added: "He is doing very well now, but we have often had Dutch players who first played very well, but later became less". Overmars does not think so. " Barcelona may return for Frenkie in January, but players will not leave in that period".

Consumers planning to buy one of the newly introduced iPhone models will also soon be able to order Beats headphones and earbuds with a matching color. Now, the chances of that happening seem much slimmer. Whether you're the type of person who buys the new iPhone every year or your current phone is getting creaky with age and it's time to upgrade, you're probably wondering when these new devices will come out. There's a type A cable with support of 5W lightning charger.

Courtesy of the A12 Bionic ISP, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will also now allow users to edit depth-of-field effects after a photo has already been taken, with a new Depth slider in the Photos app that will allow for the f-stop to be adjusted dynamically. All other details are same as that of the iPhone XS.

Apple first signaled the end of the headphone jack in 2016, when it introduced the iPhone 7, which features a lightning connector.

None of Apple's new iPhones feature a home button, which could mean that technology is on its way out.
