  • Here's How Xiaomi Mocked Apple For Steep Pricing Of New iPhones

The company introduced its 2018 line-up of iPhones - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR - at an event held in Steve Jobs Theater in its new Apple Park campus.

Xiaomi has fired a cheeky shot at Apple by highlighting the massive price disparity between its products and the next-generation iPhones revealed last week.

This accessory costs just $9 and Apple is charging not just a premium for the iPhone Xs Max, but customers will have to head out and purchase the adapter as well as a fast charger.

When the iPhone X was launched in India past year, it became the first iPhone in the country to breach the Rs 1 lakh mark and raised eyebrows from all corners.

With every new iPhone release, Apple earns accolades from the press about how handsome, powerful, and most of all desirable the latest iteration of its flagship product is.

Amazon could launch as many as eight new devices later this month
Amazon is also stepping up partnerships with home installation companies and home builders. The world could have an Alexa-enabled microwave before 2018 is finished-yes, a microwave.

"We estimate the shipment peak of XS Max and XS will be in October and XR will start shipping and benefiting supply chain momentum in October", Kuo writes, adding that "We estimate the shipments of the 2H18 new iPhone models will grow slightly year-over-year to 75 to 80 million units".

"Taking photos, watching videos, FaceTiming, Fortniting, even writing emails felt more immersive on the big phone", she writes.

'The role of the iPhone has become much larger in people's lives'.

The reason for these speed bumps is not only the new modem with LAA support - which can make use of unlicensed radio spectrum in the 5 GHz band - but a 4x4 MIMO antenna that allows the iPhone Xs to quadruple the the number of internet data signals over four different aerials.
