When the iPhone X was launched in India previous year, it became the first iPhone in the country to breach the Rs 1 lakh mark and raised eyebrows from all corners.
On T-Mobile, the increase was much less, in part because the iPhone X already had the fastest connectivity in that network: 29.82Mbps.
Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook, whose products have been spared from new USA tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, said on Tuesday he was optimistic that the United States and China will eventually work through their trade differences.
The XR bundle includes a Xiaomi Mi 8 SE smartphone, 12.5-inch Mi Notebook Air, the Mi Band 3, the Mi Bluetooth Mini Headset.is priced at CNY 6,499 (Rs. 68,200 approx) which is roughly equal to the starting price of the iPhone XR. The Xs starts at $999 while the Xs Max has a $1,099 price tag.
Collectively, the new iPhones average 64.79 Mbps across all three networks, compared to the collective average of 27.86 Mbps for the iPhone X. No matter how you slice it, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are significantly faster in LTE performance, based on these early results.
"Taking photos, watching videos, FaceTiming, Fortniting, even writing emails felt more immersive on the big phone", she writes.
A bright spot in an otherwise low-key upgrade is the dual SIM support, a feature that the company's much-touted iPhone X did not have.
