Apple iPhone XS and XS Max

Apple iPhone XS and XS Max

11% of those who told the Harris pollsters that they were going to upgrade their current iPhone with the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max, changed their mind after being reminded about the price of those models. Perhaps it is to keep things simple and usually, the amount of battery capacity doesn't necessary represent real world battery life. iPhones in generally are very power efficient considering they come with much smaller batteries than its Android rivals.

Among the hundreds of Apple fans who turned up at the Orchard Road store early Friday morning was 29-year-old Jonathan Lim who bought eight iPhones on behalf of family and friends.

There's no discernible difference between the published specs for the displays on the X, XS, and XS Max, but Apple says the new screens are the best the company has ever produced, with industry-leading color accuracy, brightness, and contrast. Apple iPhone XS with its IP68 rating can be submerged in fresh water up to two meters for 30 minutes.

But at this point, buying an updated iPhone is like getting a new Ferrari - you'll find a faster engine, a new coat of paint, and a few new bells and whistles, but beneath all that it's still basically the same vehicle you could have bought a year ago. They drop the phones onto concrete, of course. But whereas the iPhone X had (and the iPhone XS Max still has) a double-battery configuration-one for the vertical line of the L and the other for the horizontal-the iPhone XS has one L-shaped battery. The powerbanks were emblazoned with the words Here's a battery, you'll need it on the cover.

If the worst-case election scenario happens for Senate Republicans, they lose control of the process to shape the Supreme Court. Christine Blasey Ford said that she would not testify next week, unless there is a proper FBI investigation first.

According to reports, as many as 200 power bans were handed out to iPhone fans in Singapore.

iPhone XS and XS Max are the first Apple phones to support dual-SIM functionality.

We will have to wait and see how Samsung's triple system compares to Huawei's but this could be the start of a revolution in new camera technology.

If you're on the fence, consider the iPhone XS or XS Max as a several-year investment. Each unit comes with a price tag of around $72. You can use the dock as a nightstand for Apple Watch too.
