IPhone XS, XS Max show off 'battery origami' in iFixit teardown

IPhone XS, XS Max show off 'battery origami' in iFixit teardown

And Samsung's $1,000 Note9 phone, which came out in August, in some ways out-maxes even the iPhone Xs Max.

The jovial act took place at around 11 p.m. Singapore time and a company spokesperson confirmed to CNET saying the reason behind the hand-out was to "offer respite from the weather and gruelling wait".

The iPhone XS and XS Max don't have fingerprint readers.

Apple has launched its latest iPhone handsets and an updated Apple Watch in stores across the world.

For example, an iPhone XS 64GB model costs about 8,340 yuan (US$1,218) on the grey market, down 4.2% from the official price of 8,699 yuan that Apple set for China. Some who aimed to resell the phones to scalpers only offered HK$1 (US$0.13) more than the original price.

If you're the kind of person who likes to beat the rest out of the gates, best you get that pre-order in now, and lap up the adulation when you're the first person at the braai to have the new iPhone and everybody wants a look. A long line of fans had camped outside the Apple store for a chance to be among the first to get one of the latest iPhones, reports CNET.

At the launch of the iPhone XS alongside the new Apple Watch at Apple's headquarters in California on September 12, Apple's chief design officer Jony Ive said the new phones are the company's "uncompromised vision for the future." . New orders of numerous new watch models won't arrive until the end of October in the USA, while orders from China are seeing a three to four week wait time. If the iPhone XS Max is too big, then the Note 9 is also too big, and by extension, the iPhone 8 Plus is too (it's taller and wider than the XS Max, but barely). But none of the enhancements are significant unless a user upgrading a much older iPhone.

It said the larger models with the smallest storage capacity also did not do well, with the 64GB iPhone XS Max being resold at HK$1 more than the original price.

The iPhone XR will be available for pre order starting October 19. "I'll see but if I can't sell it, I might as well use it myself", she said.
