Just after Apple made an announcement of three new iPhones during the keynote event, including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, the company also stated that they are now way selling the iPhone X, iPhone SE, and the iPhone 6s.
It’s now official, Apple has discontinued the 2017 iPhone X with the introduction of its three new phones. Also removed the iPhone 6s and SE from Apple’s website as well, making the end of iPhones with headphone jacks.
With the iPhone XS starting at a price of $999, and the addition of the cheaper $749 iPhone XR announced, the iPhone X has, fortunately, become redundant. Despite rumors of low sales since its launch, Apple earnings show that the iPhone X actually sold quite well.
Although it makes sense for Apple to remove the iPhone X from the lineup. Still, Apple can make its revenue with the new iPhone XS, XS Max, and iPhone XR. Though the iPhone SE, X, and 6s have all been removed from the US market, it doesn’t rule out the sale of these older devices in developing markets like India.
“Apple announced three new iPhones today, including the cheaper iPhone XR, making the iPhone X obsolete. The iPhone 6s and SE have been removed from the Apple website as well.”
Now that the iPhone XS and XS Max are too much expensive, because of its hardware internals and elements used to grab the attention diverting customers upgrade to iPhone XS / XS Max, and XR. There’s no good reason to shell out for the more expensive iPhone X, except maybe the exclusivity of owning a phone that was ushered in with the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone.
iPhone X was the first and foremost device to introduce the now-ubiquitous notch that’s influenced the entire mobile industry with a wave of copycat designs, and the first iPhone with Face ID. Yes, it introduced intuitive gesture controls and with the phone came wireless charging, plus AirPods.
About the iPhone 6s and SE discontinued because of the only reason that they aren’t capable of A12 CPU power and performance. It’s time to decide whether you go reverse phone backup or upgrade with Find My iPhone feature enabled.
