IPhone fans fearless bad weather to get new phone, Apple Watch

IPhone fans fearless bad weather to get new phone, Apple Watch

Apple iPhone XS and XS Max pre-orders have started in India, with availability of the phones slated for 28 September, which is one week from now. Thanks to TENAA, we know that the iPhone X's battery had a fairly small 2716 mAh capacity spread across two cells. Maybe that extra surface area has made the iPhone Xs Max weaker than the previous version. When dropped from head height, the iPhone X's glass cracked, while the iPhone XS escaped with almost no damage. I don't want to spoil the verdict too early, so check back soon to Gizmodo for our full reviews on both the iPhone XS and the XS Max. For 2018, the iPhone XS Max is getting 4GB of RAM and previously, you could only find that much RAM on the iPad Pro.

Jim Morrison, vice president of TechInsights, said in an interview that it appeared that one of Dialog Semiconductor's chips had been replaced in the iPhone Xs Max by one of Apple's own chips, but it was not yet known whether that also applied to the iPhone Xs. When ConsumerAffairs checked prices for that same iPhone 6 on certain exchange sites, we found better prices than those that Apple offered, but lower values than Apple was allowing for factory unlocked iPhone 7 models.

Miami Beach police say Maria Henriquez and her boyfriend, Vincente Cruz, were among the hordes of tech fans waiting in lines across the country Friday morning to get their hands on Apple's new $1,000 iPhone XS and $1,100 XS Max.

This dock supports Apple Watch's Nightstand mode "for optimal viewing angle" and is able to charge "through most phone cases up to 3mm thick".

"People come here to buy Apple". There's more display than the regular XS, but the phone itself is also larger - just not as large as the Max.

The other glaring difference is the new A12 Bionic processor, which is Apple's first 7nm chip. There, the iPhone XS Max 512GB model is changing hands at 14,800 yuan (US$2,161), or 2,001 yuan more than the official price.

Otherwise, the cameras have largely remained the same, with dual-lens 12MP rear cameras at f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures, and a 7MP TrueDepth front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture. New orders of numerous new watch models won't arrive until the end of October in the US, while orders from China are seeing a three to four week wait time.
