AT&T Announces Details on New Apple Products on the Nation's Best Network

DALLAS, Sept. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T* today announced it will offer the most advanced iPhones ever on the best network according to America's biggest test.1

On Sept. 14 at 12:01 am PST, AT&T wireless customers can visit to pre-order iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, and Apple Watch Series 4, all beautifully redesigned with breakthrough communication, fitness and health capabilities.

On Sept. 21 iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available to AT&T wireless, AT&T PREPAID and Cricket Wireless customers, and the Apple Watch Series 4 will be available to AT&T customers.

iPhone XR will be available for preorder on Oct. 19 and in AT&T stores as soon as Oct. 26.

"These are the most advanced iPhones ever. With AT&T, they'll be running on the nation's best wireless network," said David Christopher, president, AT&T Mobility and Entertainment. "And it's all with the best combination of wireless entertainment and unlimited data."

Through our latest unlimited wireless plans - AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM and AT&T Unlimited &MoreSM Premium2 — we offer 30+ live channels included with WatchTV. With &More Premium, you can also add one of several premium streaming services at no extra cost - HBO®, Cinemax, SHOWTIME®, STARZ®, VRV, Amazon Music Unlimited or Pandora Premium.

With our introduction of mobile 5G on the horizon, expected to be available in 12 cities this year and a total of at least 19 in early 2019, we've been hard at work laying the foundation for the future of wireless connectivity.3

In 15 markets, and counting, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are gigabit-class devices utilizing AT&T's LTE-LAA network technologies, capable of offering a theoretical peak speed of up to 1 gigabit per second.4

Additionally, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have built-in support for Band 14, which is the spectrum set aside for public safety and makes up the all-band solution upon which FirstNet is built.  On Sept. 14, we're also making these devices available for pre-order on the FirstNet web portal, found here.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max take the vision for the future of the smartphone to a new level, featuring stunning 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch Super Retina displays that offer remarkable brightness and true blacks while showing 60 percent greater dynamic range in HDR photos. iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max bring an improved dual camera system that offers breakthrough photo and video features, A12 Bionic chip with next-generation Neural Engine, faster Face ID, wider stereo sound, longer battery life, splash and water resistance,5 the most durable glass ever in a smartphone, and a beautiful new gold finish that joins silver and space gray. iPhone XS Max offers a more immersive experience with over 3 million pixels for videos, movies and games, offering the largest display ever in an iPhone. Both phones introduce Dual SIM to iPhone through the use of a nano-SIM and digital eSIM.6

Additionally, iPhone XR, bringing the latest iPhone innovations to more people, will be available to pre-order at AT&T wireless on Friday, Oct. 19 at 12 am PST. iPhone XR features an all-screen glass and aluminum design with a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display — the most color accurate in the industry, with wide color support and True Tone for a more natural viewing experience. iPhone XR features A12 Bionic with next-generation Neural Engine, the TrueDepth camera system, faster Face ID, an advanced camera system that creates dramatic portraits using a single camera lens, LTE Advanced for fast download speeds and six beautiful finishes.


iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available for AT&T wireless customers for pre-order starting 12 a.m. PST, Sept. 14, with delivery and in AT&T and Cricket stores as soon as Sept. 21.  Ordering online or through the myAT&T app is the easiest and fastest way to get your new smartphone from AT&T.
