  • Apple CEO Tim Cook defends pricing of new iPhones says it's worth the money

Additionally, Apple has also partnered with e-commerce portal Flipkart, and customers can place pre-orders for the various iPhone XS models starting at 12:01 AM.

The iPhone XS 64GB (yes, it does have the water resistant feature to prevent poolside disaster this summer, as well as the new formulation glass to prevent screen cracking) will go for R21 899.

The iPhone XS additionally includes extra 30 minutes on the battery life than the last release, iPhone X, while the iPhone XS Max's battery is expected to last an hour and 30 minutes more than iPhone X. The iPhone XS is also more waterproof than the past models.

It's an especially confusing moment: Apple will sell no fewer than eight iPhone models in 2018.

TechSmartt dropped the new XS and XS Max - as well as last year's iPhone X - from three (loosely defined) heights: pocket height, head height, and roughly 10 feet.

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.

It's the first confirmation we've had that the new iPhone XS has a smaller physical battery than the iPhone X.

As always, there were fans who flew all the way to the UAE - one of the markets that regularly get new iterations of the iPhone first - just to satisfy their tech craving.

Apple also introduced iPhone XR.

Both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are equipped with 4 GB of RAM, while the iPhone XR is equipped with 3 GB of RAM.

The iPhone XS and XS Max have been taken apart.

Apple has launched its latest iPhone handsets and an updated Apple Watch in stores across the world. What do you think Huawei is trying to tell Apple?

Will you be queueing up for the new iPhone?

Apple's walled-garden approach to iOS does have some advantages. I found refurbished ones on eBay and elsewhere for $170. It has a 6.4-inch screen, a stylus, an iris reader, and even the ability to plug in a keyboard, mouse and desktop-sized monitor.
