This is the iPhone XS queue in Singapore

'An evolution, not a revolution': Apple's new iPhones score only slightly above the X in reviews

Apart from Airtel and Flipkart, distributors Ingram Micro and Redington have announced that the OLED iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max variants will also be made available at over 3,000 and 2,500 retail locations across India, respectively. "Rather than using two cells to fill this L-shaped recess, Apple has constructed an all-new single-cell battery". Both of his iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xs are in the gold variant and sport an internal storage capacity of 512GB, which only means both iPhone models are very expensive, with the iPhone Xs Max going as high as for $1,449 in the US for the highest storage version.

The new prices are R1,500 more than the starting prices of the previous iPhone X in South Africa a year ago.

Along with this big display, Apple has tucked the new A12 Bionic processor under the glass and metal body.

According to the news report, both of them are part of a 44-member group from Vietnam that had flown in specifically to buy the latest iPhone models.

The first interesting revelation is that the iPhone XS has a smaller battery than the one found inside last year's iPhone X - 10.13Wh compared to 10.35Wh.

British duo Lucy Hutchinson and James Griffith flew into Australia on Thursday night and made a beeline for the George Street outlet to be sure their new iPhone accessories were a snug fit. And as is the case, the teardown of the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max has revealed some interesting details that Apple didn't tell us about during the unveiling.

The iPhone XS Max is priced at Rs 1,09,900 for the 64GB variant, Rs 1,24,900 for the 256GB variant and Rs 1,44,900 for the 512GB variant.

Apple says the iPhone Xr will be available to pre-order from October 19.

While these figures may sound intriguing, it's important to remember that the typical buyer of an Apple iPhone XS in India is unlikely to earn a salary near the net average figure.

A bright spot in an otherwise low-key upgrade is the dual SIM support, a feature that the company's much-touted iPhone X did not have.
