IPhone 9 may be Apple's most expensive iPhone yet

It is thought we will see a new iPhone X, an iPhone X Plus and a third, cheaper model. Here is how they differ, based on the speculation.

Recently, Apple product reviewing site, 9to5Mac revealed the press renders of the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max in all its glory.

Out of all the three iPhones launching this year, the 6.1-inch iPhone could be the most exciting one, because, the price.

The rumors also suggest that one or maybe both will be called iPhone XS.

We now know that the largest phone Apple is going to announce, at 6.5-inches, will be called the iPhone XS Max. It claims that Apple plans to unveil a low-end model with LCD display dubbed as "iPhone" and not iPhone 9 as previously rumoured. The first, which could be known as the iPhone XS, will likely offer the same design as the iPhone X and come with a 5.8-inch screen. Its unclear why Apple is choosing to ditch the Plus from the next-generation iPhone line, and why "Max" has been used rather than "Pro" which Apple uses for its iPad and MacBook hardware.

Resolution is a little unclear at the moment. Therefore, the inclusion of a 6.1 inch LCD panel on the upcoming iPhone is a welcome change.

IPhone XS Max will offer improvements as compared to the iPhone X in nearly every aspect.

All three upcoming iPhones are expected to be powered by Apple's A12 chipset.

In the United States, the iPhone 9 would go for $699, the iPhone XS should start at $799, while the iPhone XS Max would set you back by $999. Even with fewer units sold, because of the higher ASP, or average selling price per iPhone, Apple would be able to rake in a higher revenue.

"Over the last six years, screen size is the lone feature that we believe has demonstrated a consistent ability to drive both volume and pricing power", wrote KeyBanc Capital Markets.

Who is the target audience for the iPhone XS? The iPhone XS will probably have a higher starting storage option and more RAM to compete with other devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo back in June also stated that the LCD model could be priced for $600-$700.

New photos reveal some of the fancier color options buyers will be able to choose from, including red and blue.

In other words: If you have even a passing interest in Apple products, or even if you're an Android fanboy looking to see what Google needs to counter with its own October 9 event, you'll want to follow this event live.
