At 1:00 a.m. Beijing time on September 13, Apple released three iPhones and the fourth generation Apple watch at the jobs theater, its new headquarters in California, USA. As a result, the launch of the three new phones directly led to the removal of the iPhone x, so why should Apple remove the iPhone x? Can it still be bought now?
The outside world's prediction of the new iPhone is almost all in the middle: the three iPhones are iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. Among them, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max can be understood as the upgraded version of the iPhone x, and the 512gb version of the iPhone XS Max is priced at 12799 yuan in the Chinese market, which is also the most expensive iPhone in history. The iPhone, on the other hand, is a relatively cheap model with a minimum price of 6499 yuan.
Never thought that Apple released a new mobile phone, but the iPhone X was the number one hot search!
IPhone x iPhone 6S and iPhone se are also off the shelves
With the launch of the new iPhone on Apple's official website, some careful Netizens found that the page for purchasing iPhone x could not be found on Apple's official website. They thought that iPhone X had been taken off the shelves, and others thought that iPhone X had been discontinued.
At present, there are only four series of iPhones on Apple's official website, namely the newly launched iphonexs and iphonexrs. Last year's iphone8 series and 2016's iphone7 series were launched. Among them, the newly launched iphonexs and iphonexrs can't be reserved. The official website is selling only the last two series.
After the launch of the new iPhone, Apple will stop selling some old versions of the iPhone. The iPhone 6S and iPhone ESE, which have been off the shelves, were launched in September 2015 and March 2016, respectively. They have been on the market for more than two years. It is also expected that the official website will stop selling.
But in terms of sales time, the iPhone X that stopped selling was unexpected. It was officially launched on November 3 on September 12 last year, less than a year ago.
In this regard, apple told reporters that the iPhone x is sold to operators and channel providers, and "it has been discontinued? How can it be. '
In February, Apple CEO cook also said that iPhone x sales exceeded their expectations, with weekly shipments the highest since its launch.
Where can I buy it?

At 1:00 a.m. Beijing time on September 13, Apple released three iPhones and the fourth generation Apple watch at the jobs theater, its new headquarters in California, USA.
Apple eventually named the latest iPhone the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS max. This is also consistent with the prediction of the outside world.
The sizes of the two models are 5.8 "and 6.5" respectively. The middle frame is made of stainless steel, and the back cover is still glass with OLED full screen. The iPhone XS can be understood as an upgrade to the iPhone x, while the iPhone XS Max is a large version of the iPhone x upgrade.
The 6.5-inch iPhone XS max, Apple's largest smartphone by far, is the same size as the iPhone 8p.
The new machine comes in three colors, gold, silver and dark grey. It has one more choice than the iPhone X.
The iPhone can also be IP68 waterproof, that is to say, it can last for 30 minutes when the phone is two meters underwater, take it out and use it as usual.
In addition, the long-awaited dual card dual standby finally came. This time, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max realized dual card dual standby through ESIM. The so-called ESIM card is the embedded SIM card, which is different from the traditional SIM card which can be removed independently. It embeds the SIM card directly into the device chip. The main advantage of ESIM card is that it can solve the problem of Internet of things application scenario in harsh environment, and the user can directly write the new number into ESIM card by changing the operator.
However, apple explained that the ESIM card technology is not available for the iPhone in the Chinese market at present, so it uses a physical dual card, i.e. two physical SIM cards are inserted in one card slot on both sides. It is understood that the iPhone XS Max first supports dual card and dual standby in China.
The prices of various models have also been announced. Three new models have been listed on the official website of Apple China. They will be pre purchased at 3:01 p.m. on October 19, Beijing time, and officially launched on October 26.
The 64g version of iPhone XR is 6499 yuan, the 128G version is 6999 yuan, and the 256g version is 7899 yuan, which supports dual entity SIM card;
The 64g version of the iPhone XS is 8699 yuan, the 256g version is 10099 yuan, and the 512gb version is 11899 yuan, which are all single SIM cards;
The 64g version of the iPhone XS Max is 9599 yuan, the 256g version is 10999 yuan, and the 512gb version is 12799 yuan, which supports dual entity SIM card.
As you can see from the graph, the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR in Macao and China are both supporting dual SIM entity cards. IPhone XS is also a dual card, but it is a single SIM card + virtual eSIM card, which is more powerful than the National Bank edition. All the other three versions of all countries and regions are single visa card cards.
From this point of view, Hong Kong version is undoubtedly the first choice of people. It is worth mentioning that the three models of Hong Kong version support CDMA network, which means that Telecom can also use the Hong Kong version of iPhone normally.
