Apple showcased three new iPhones Wednesday, including the new iPhone XS Max, with the largest phone display the tech company has ever manufactured. The Max has an 6.5-inch edge-to-edge screen and will sell for $1,100, $100 more than last year’s iPhone X. The iPhone XS, an update to last year’s model, will stay at $1,000, and a new iPhone XR, made with cheaper materials in an effort to reach customers who don’t want to pay the higher price tag, will sell for about $750. The XS models come out Sept. 21, while the XR is due out on Oct. 26.
Apple also announced it will release a free update to its iOS operating system next Tuesday, followed by a Mac software update a week later.
