iPhone XS review Julian Chokkattu/Digital Trends

Apple has taken the wraps off its latest and greatest iPhones — the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. The three iPhones boast a ton of new features, including a more modern design on the lower-cost iPhone XR and improvements to the processing power of all of the phones. After a successful few weeks for the iPhone XS and XS Max, it’s now the iPhone XR’s turn — the device is now up for pre-order and will go on sale on October 26.

First, you’ll need to figure out which new iPhone is right for you. Check out our iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max reviews to see how they stack up, or maybe read up on why the iPhone XR is the better choice. Once you’ve decided, where should you buy it from? We’ve put together this guide to help. Here’s how, when, and where to buy the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.

As you might expect, you can order the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max from Apple unlocked, if you so choose. Pricing for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max can be found below.

iPhone XS 64GB: $1,000, or $49.91 per month with the iPhone upgrade program iPhone XS 256GB: $1,150, or $56.16 per month with the iPhone upgrade program iPhone XS 512GB: $1,350, or $64.50 per month with the iPhone upgrade program iPhone XS Max 64GB: $1,100, or $54.08 per month with the iPhone upgrade program iPhone XS Max 256GB: $1,250, or $60.33 per month with the iPhone upgrade program iPhone XS Max 512GB: $1,450, or $68.66 per month with the iPhone upgrade program

In addition to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, Apple also unveiled the new iPhone XR, which does away with some of the features in the iPhone XS, but comes at a lower price. The iPhone XR is now up for pre-order, with in-store availability set to begin o October 26. Pricing for the iPhone XR can be found below, though we’re not currently sure if the iPhone XR will be available unlocked given the fact that there doesn’t seem to be an unlocked option on the Apple website — only carrier options. We’ll update this article with more information when we have it. If it is available unlocked, it will likely offer the same pricing as carriers, which can be found below.

iPhone XR 64GB: $749, or $37.41 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program iPhone XR 128GB: $799, or $39.50 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program iPhone XR 256GB: $899, or $43.66 per month with the iPhone Upgrade Program

Apple isn’t the only one to offer the new iPhones unlocked. It’s likely we’ll also see the new devices pop up at Amazon, Best Buy, and other places too.
