As tradition has followed, Apple fans in Singapore queued up outside Apple stores overnight in sheer anticipation of buying the new iPhone XS or XS Max. A year ago in the iPhone X, Apple simply connected two rectangular batteries together in order to cram its awkward shaped battery pack in the phone.
The phones come with Apple's new A12 bionic chip, which helps power complex augmented reality apps and what makes Face ID and games load faster. Previous year brought that quasi-radical redesign of Apple's product, but what was quasi-radical in 2017 is standard in 2018.
Despite the heavy security at the Apple store at 1021 Lincoln Rd., in South Beach, detectives believe it was a targeted heist. The iPhone XS Max is priced at Rs 1,09,900 for the 64GB option.
Expectedly so, Apple fans not only from the UAE but also from outside the country have kicked off the iPhone frenzy in the country. First to fail is last year's iPhone X which develops a substantial crack on the side of the display that first hit the ground. For Apple in particular, the length of lines have becoming less important as it sells more phones online and adjusts its business model.
When it comes to specs, Apple doesn't officially disclose the amount of RAM and battery capacity for their mobile devices. The iPhone X lasted about 9.5 hours in our own WiFi battery test, coming in well behind most other flagships past year.
iFixit gave both phones a six repairability score out of 10, noting that critical display and battery repairs are still a priority in the design and that the display can be removed without removing the TrueDepth array. "You'll need it. Courtesy of Huawei".
It may be hard to wrap your mind around spending almost a grand or more on a new iPhone.
Apple's new flagships started flying off UAE shelves on Friday, with a familiar face once again kicking off sales. People stood, sat and slept in the queue, hoping to be the first ones to own Apple's latest iPhone releases - the XS and the XS Max.
