Apple iPhone XS launch: How and where to watch livestream in India

As far as they see it, there's no point in technology for technology's sake - a philosophy has been validated year after year. The two critical factors that influence India iPhone pricing would be: 1. Currently, popular attention in India is on the value of the rupee to the dollar.

Although these processors were just-announced, they're already reportedly experiencing a shortage, which could affect whether we even see a MacBook Air 2018 announcement on September 12. That isn't stopping some news from appearing, though, and we now have three little tidbits that might be of interest to those who have a keen eye on what Apple's lineup will look like for the next year.

We asked you for your thoughts via Twitter. In addition to the iPhone Xs, Xs Max and Xr, Apple is also expected to show off the Apple Watch Series 4, new AirPods, a new MacBook, and possibly new iPad Pro models as well. Four years later, the dollar is now equivalent to more than Rs 72. The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus were the first ones to get launched at the Steve Jobs Theatre past year. The pricing were based on then import duty of 15 percent on fully built iPhone models and dollar was trading at Rs 65.


And because today, Rambo has revealed that he found the pictures at Apple's own website.

It is predicted that Apple products will be available to buy in the first week of October.

The iPhone XC is expected to be relatively more affordable iPhone. The other phone, iPhone XR is being predicted as the lower-priced phone with a 6.1-inch display.


Beyond the XS and XS Max, completing the set in 2018 may be a budget version of the iPhone X. If so, that would mean the home button, the circular button that made the iPhone instantly recognisable, will be no more.

Last year, it was the iPhone's 10-year anniversary, and fans were expecting a reinvention of the device.

However, there are reports that Apple might push the launch of AR devices to next year so this might just be a grey area. We are expecting Apple to add 10 percent margin to compensate the depreciating rupee and increased import duty.


As we have mentioned earlier, Apple has never officially streamed its event outside of its ecosystem. If Apple decides to go big and aggressive in India, we could see the company taking an initial hit in price. Even so, the cheaper iPhone is still expected to sell for $650 to $750. In fact, if you didn't know, one of the main reasons for the push towards screen sizes larger than 5 inches was the requirement to improve the effectiveness of mobile advertisements and not really convenience of the user.
