IPhone Xs, Xs Max pre-orders start on Flipkart, Airtel, Jio

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

"It's quite a scary moment for us finding out exactly what the iPhone is like", the co-founders of Mous, a company that sells mobile phone cases, said in Sydney. The mid-variant with 256GB storage is priced at Rs. 1,14,900 and the top-end 512GB storage model costs Rs. 1,34,900. We bet Apple fans didn't see that coming.

The iPhone XS and XS Max were revealed to the world earlier this month, and while we had a firm grasp on USA pricing, the iStore today announced pricing for South Africa.

Elsewhere, as you'd expect, the XS and XS Max share a lot of engineering and design traits with the iPhone X. However, there are a couple important improvements, most notably in the antenna and camera departments. What do you think Huawei is trying to tell Apple?

Li Yiqiang, who bought a gold Hong Kong-version of the 64GB iPhone XR Max at the price of 9,800 yuan (HK$11,220) in Huaqiangbei, said: "If I place an order in the Apple Store, I have to wait for 10 days to get one".

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

Simultaneously Charge Apple Watch and Phone: this 4400mAh power bank can simultaneously charge an Apple Watch and an iPhone; Charge iPhone 6 1.8 times or Charges Apple Watch from 7-8 times. Users activated the feature with a double-tap on the home button.

Skimming through my Twitter timeline after the iPhone XS review embargo lifted earlier this week (I refuse to read reviews of a product until after I've reviewed it), I got the impression that the iPhone XS Max was too big for most reviewers.

Apple has officially stopped selling the SE.

Apple's walled-garden approach to iOS does have some advantages.

The XS Max with a 6.5-inch screen, the largest display ever in an iPhone, and the XS with a 5.8-inch screen, both of which have a high-end organic light-emitting diode display, will retail for 124,800 yen and 112,800 yen, respectively.

Samsung's Galaxy Note9 also has a huge screen - and comes with a stylus. "When you're used to the bigger size it's hard to go back to a smaller one".

The new iPhones look similar to their predecessor. And you'll be $200 richer.
