The SE seems to have been quietly dropped too. That’s a shame. It was a good part of the range.

I’ve got an SE. I’m due an upgrade in March. I’ll probably get the X-R.

Why is the XR so much bigger than the X and they have taken away 3D touch?

Its like they are finding a way for people to want the XS

Will probably upgrade during next September’s models. Still quite happy using my 6s, even with dodgy battery percentage indicator (never bothered to get it fixed).

Hoping the finger print censor will return under the screen, and the notch at the top be removed, which seems like the next two logical jumps?

Surely its better buying a cheap X than an XR?

They're around £750 to £800 new on ebay, which is favourable compared to the XR, which is £750 but with a worse screen and features.

They will drop from Apple and retailers once the new ones are in stock

Just ordered an XS Max. I feel a little sick.

I love Apple products but their pricing is ridiculous. I'm still using an Iphone 5 so trying to justify it that it will be something I'll get 4 years at least out of. I actually had the money saved ready to buy it last year but couldn't do it. It doesn't matter how much I've saved, I was always going to feel a bit guilty spending over a grand on a phone.

I was just ordering a new Apple Watch Series 4 but they clearly have been popular and delivery is estimated at 8-15 of October, I might just wait and see if I can buy one from Argos or somewhere next Friday,

So the XR is basically just the X but without the OLED screen and 3D Touch?

Weird.

Yeah I don't see why you woulddn't just buy an X if you were after a new iPhone that's not the XS.

I suppose Apple wanted a phone to fit in with like the iPhone 8 price range so it is cheaper than £1,000, it will be interesting to see how it sells, I will be staying with my iPhone X for at least another year
