Getting rid of the headphone jack also allows newer iPhones to be thinner by a few millimeters.
That may be because the new iPhone XS has the same starter price, meaning Apple would have to offer the iPhone X at a discount.
Three new iPhones are heading our way: the XS, XS Max, and the XR. It packs a 5.8 inch Super Retina OLED display with the resolution of 1125×2234 pixels. Both displays boast a 60 percent greater dynamic range than the iPhone, while featuring the same high contrast ratio, HDR, Dolby Vision, HDR10, True Tone display, wide color support, and 120Hz refresh rate.
The decision is likely to alienate some holdouts who still use the old school wired headphones offered by Apple over the years and haven't yet embraced the lightning cable.

However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible. The base variant of iPhone XS with 64GB memory will sell at Rs 99,990 whereas the 64GB variant of the 6.5-inch variant is priced at Rs 1,09,000.
The iPhone XS Max (iPhone 11,6) does even better in Geekbench tests, and it's probably thanks to that extra gigabyte of RAM. So, with that in mind, the company has announced that pre-orders for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will begin this coming Friday, September 14. The online world erupted at Apple's new price list.
The glass on the iPhone XS / XS Max, according to Apple, is the strongest ever on an iPhone.
As for the iPhone XR, the TrueDepth camera remains the same, but on the rear, you find a single 12MP wide-angle lens - the same planted into the iPhone XS / XS Max offering all the goodies packed into the iPhone XS / XS Max, such as Smart HDR, Portrait Lighting, but sadly no Depth Control. It also packs the same Apple A12 Bionic with 6 cores along with 3GB RAM.
While iPhone sales have slowed, Apple profits have risen along with the average purchase price of its handsets. The price will start from RMB 6499 and is available in six colours - Yellow, White, Coral, Black, Blue and Red.
