Apple revealed the shimmery new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR with a new powerful chip and better camera. The story that got us to this point is actually rather long, and it involves Apple slowing down phones with old, worn out batteries to prevent random crashing. iPhone users naturally didn't take kindly to that remote throttling, so Apple made a decision to extend an olive branch to them and cut the price of battery replacement for the entirety of 2018.
Predictably, folks on Twitter did not greet the news favorably.
iPhone XS and XS Max Specs in China: iPhone XS is the smallest device among all the iPhones that have launched at the yesterday's Apple event.

While battery replacement used to cost $79 regardless of the model, Apple dropped the price to a mere $29 for this campaign.
In short, Apple's latest announcement prices out consumers looking for a more affordable iPhone, even if it is a few years old. It also makes me anxious about Apple's new pricing structure, which, in the case of the iPhone, uses a lower-priced smartphone neutered in some important ways to strongly suggest users buy the more expensive, more capable device.

Apple India's official website has no mention of prices of the iPhone 6 and iPhone SE, so it will be fair to assume that Apple is discontinuing the two devices.
However, avoiding Apple's requisite dongle, which enables users to plug 3.5mm headphones into the Lightning connector, is now impossible.
With these changes astir, now might be the ideal time to pick up a discontinued iPhone before it falls out of circulation, especially if you're after a model with a headphone jack.
