Apple mulls naming new model ‘iPhone XS MAX’

J. Lekavicius

The new name, first reported by 9to5Mac, suggests Apple will dump its "Plus" moniker for larger phones.

If Apple does stick with the same pricing, it means the iPhone Xs will start at $799 while the iPhone Xs Max will be around $999. They take everything that's great about the iPhone X and make it even better, with a faster and more efficient processor, better battery life, and an even bigger OLED display on the 6.5-inch iPhone XS model. We'll find out the truth at the upcoming Apple event on September 12.

We now know that the largest phone Apple is going to announce, at 6.5-inches, will be called the iPhone XS Max.

But still, despite Apple's marketing and insistence on pronouncing last year's iPhone X as iPhone 10 - X is the Roman numeral for 10, and it was the 10th-anniversary iPhone - lots of people still called it "the iPhone Ex". There might also a third iPhone with LCD Panel and dual-SIM support.




A attendee uses a new iPhone X during a presentation for the media in Beijing, China October 31, 2017.

While the low-end model could be a great entry point for price-conscious users, the iPhone XS is sure to be the star of the show. Both models resemble the current iPhone X.

Keep in mind that Apple's iPhone series is usually much more expensive in India. The new iPhones and Apple Watch will be coming in a new Gold color variant. According to the research note, detailed by MacRumors, both premium iPhone models expected to be released this year will have storage options of 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB.

We don't get a glimpse at the front where it's expected there will be a 6.1-inch LCD with a notch for Face ID 1.0.
