IPhone XS and XS Max drop test reveals which will crack first

  • Just like the iPhone X folks are predicting gloom for the iPhone XS- based on its price tag

Apple fans in Singapore waiting in line for the launch of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max had a pleasant surprise on Thursday night (20 September) after they received free powerbanks from one of Apple's competitors, Huawei. However, the XS Max still sports two batteries. Besides the fact that everybody loves freebies, a power bank would certainly come in handy for the overnight wait.

According to The Straits Times, a 44-member Vietnamese group called Dat Cay Da was also in the queue outside the Apple store at Orchard Road.

Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max are finally getting into the hands of the consumers, and what's the first thing they do?

The single cell battery in the iPhone XS uses the space more efficiently than the two-cell option but isn't as powerful, iFixit writes.

Ivy Wong, a 30-year-old clerk, also failed to resell her 256GB gold iPhone XS Max.

Granted, the improvements Apple has made - like fixes for the microphone and battery issues - along with the bells and whistles it's added over the years, make keeping up with the Joneses alluring.

And while that might sound like a lot, I still can't help but to wonder how long the XS Max would last if it had a 4,000 mAh battery like you get in a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or a Huawei P20 Pro.

The iPhone XS Max is also only offered in its 64GB guise, but will start at R1099pm for 24 months on the FreeMe 1GB package.

iPhone XS and XS Max are the first Apple phones to support dual-SIM functionality.

Huawei can't stop taking shots at Apple.

You have got to hand it to Huawei - not only are their marketing skills on point by targeting the competition's customers with their products, but they showed a little sense of humour, too.

As far as the domestic market is concerned, the company has started pre-order for the new 2018 iPhone models, which can be ordered on Flipkart and Airtel online store. Until Airtel's confirmation, only Jio's prepaid connection will work on iPhone XS and XS Max. Apple no longer sells it, though you can get it from some wireless carriers and other retailers, at least for now.
