Apple fans in Singapore get their hands on latest iPhone XS models


The new iPhone Xs, with improved battery life, and water resistance, will cost R22,000 for the 64GB version, R25,000 for the 256GB version, and R30,000 for the 512GB version. According to Apple, though the super-sized iPhone's display will use the most battery power, this configuration will provide users with even more usage time compared to iPhone X (an additional 1.5-hours). 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 USA for the highest storage version. Even that was a huge shift, especially since developers had to re-size all their apps, and the iPhone 5S and 5C the following year kept that same 4-inch screen. Due to the Apple's new 7-nanometer A12 Bionic chip, the company says that the new iPhone XS will last up to 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X.

Apple has an October surprise planned: Another new model, called the iPhone XR is coming Oct. 26 for $750. Also, iPhone XR gets the new True Tone flash. Same goes for the larger Xs Max, and cheaper Xr.

Apple quietly discontinued a few older iPhones to make room for the new models. While the iPhone X used this for portrait mode photos and Face ID smarts, it topped out at 600 billion operations per second.

The iPhone Xs and Xs Max launch tomorrow, and while we expect a flood of teardown videos to land once the phones are finally out on shelves, the first one was actually published today. Pricing starts at $999, $1,099 and $749, respectively.
