Today, in Apple event Apple announced three new iPhones for their 2018 line-up. These new iPhones include the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. You can read more about them here and here. Apple then announced the price cuts and the pricing for the existing iPhones. We were not surprised that the Apple iPhone X, Apple iPhone SE, and Apple iPhone 6s were missing from the entire line-up.
Usually, when we see Apple launching new smartphones, we get to see price drops for the previous generation iPhones. This year, Apple did something unusual by discontinuing the iPhone X completely. Apple could have easily made iPhone X available at cheaper price officially. For now, we don’t know if launching an iPhone XR, with cutbacks in things such as the design, display and camera will work for consumers or no. The actual sales of the iPhone Xr will definitely be a deciding factor for the topic.
Unsurprisingly the aged iPhone 6s, get out of the league officially. This has been the most selling smartphone around the world.
Lastly, Apple discontinues the production of iPhone SE. Now, this was the only Apple iPhone that was made in India. Apple can bring another cheap iPhone, for Indian markets now, if they want to. The iPhone SE was the last generation of its kind. The entire 4-inch Apple iPhone line-up is now an antique. You still have the iPhone 7, and the iPhone 8 in the markets if you want to buy a smaller iPhone. These two iPhones feel small, but not as small as the iPhone SE.
iPhone 6s and the iPhone SE were the last iPhones with a headphone jack. So, if you want, then you can still buy one till the stock lasts from the offline stores.
