Apple launched new iPhones today, all three of which welcome in new technology and continue to not use a 3.5mm headphone jack. And as a result, older models are getting the boot.
The iPhone X, which just launched last year, is the newer of the bunch to get discontinued. The iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max are replacing that unit. The iPhone Xs starts at $999, the same price point the iPhone X filled last year when it was launched to the public. Meanwhile, Apple is also discontinuing two other handsets: the iPhone SE and the iPhone 6s. Those two models were the company’s cheapest options, but that is no longer the case.
It also means that Apple’s smallest smartphone, following the discontinuation of the iPhone SE, is the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 (and iPhone 8). The iPhone Xr comes in with a 6.1-inch display, and the iPhone Xs still boasts that 5.8-inch screen.
So Apple’s lineup now consists of the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, the iPhone Xr, the iPhone Xs, and the iPhone Xs Max. Pricing starts at $449 and rockets up to $1,099, depending on storage options.
