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

Doors opened at 8 am with shoppers excited for their latest iPhones.

According to Hardware Zone, several Huawei staff were seen handing out power banks to bored people in line at about 11pm to get them through the night.

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. It has LCD edge to edgeand not OLED like the other phones.

The iPhone is the dominant smartphone in Japan, enjoying a roughly 50 percent market share, one of the biggest in the world. It's hard to glean concrete conclusions at this early stage of the game but we should be able to gather a more solid understanding over the coming days and weeks.

Speaking of batteries, the XR can be charged wirelessly via a standard Qi dock.

Apple's hyped up new iPhones hold a lot of allure.

And the new Depth Control feature also makes an appearance on this cheaper devcie which allows users to adjust the depth of field both in real-time preview and post-capture to create striking portraits with a lovely bokeh effect.

At the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in NY, one of the world's most popular locations, 406 people were lined up ahead of doors opening for the iPhone XS, compared with 821 who lined up past year at that store for the iPhone X, according to Gene Munster of Loup Ventures. The devices are armed with the latest Apple A12 Bionic chipsets that offer top-of-the-line performance.

"The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six lovely finishes". The new phones also come with a bigger price tag.

Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max have arrived. But those who missed the opening of pre-orders last week have to visit a physical store to get one on the first day.

How much does it cost? Both the devices are available in three storage variants; 64GB/256GB/512GB and can be pre-ordered from The iPhone XS starts at S$1,649, while the cheaper iPhone XR - available from next month - starts at S$1,229.

What colours can you buy? The buttons, cameras, ports, and finish are all the same.
