IPhone XS and XS Max reveals some battery surprises

IPhone XS and XS Max reveals some battery surprises

At the launch of the iPhone XS alongside the new Apple Watch at Apple's headquarters in California on September 12, Apple's chief design officer Jony Ive said the new phones are the company's "uncompromised vision for the future." . Apple CEO Tim Cook defended the exorbitant pricing of the new phones across the world on ABC's Good Morning America. They then subsequently distributed around 200 10000mAh power banks to those in the queue. In Singapore, those who were waiting overnight for the release of the iPhone XS and XS Max, were handed power banks by the China-based tech giant. The new iPhone XS is backed by a 2,658mAh battery, whereas its predecessor the iPhone X consisted a 2,716mAh battery. There, the iPhone XS Max 512GB model is changing hands at 14,800 yuan (US$2,161), or 2,001 yuan more than the official price. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will go on sale in India from September 28 while the iPhone XR will go on sale on October 26. The one actually big change in this year's iPhone crop is the XS Max.

The original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S all had screens that measured 3.5 inches.

It's an especially confusing moment: Apple will sell no fewer than eight iPhone models in 2018.

According to listings on the regulatory agency's website, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max both feature 4GB of RAM while the more affordable iPhone XR packs 3GB of RAM. I found refurbished ones on eBay and elsewhere for $170. Not just considering that iPhone XS and iPhone X are the same size, dimensionally, but also because Apple explicitly stated that iPhone XS is able to provide even more usage time (up to an additional 30 minutes) in comparison to iPhone X.

Trump studying possibility of a permanent United States base in Poland
Without giving a timetable, Trump said the USA and Poland planned to launch a "high-level diplomatic exchange" on energy security. President Donald Trump has said his administration was considering a request for a permanent U.S. military presence in Poland .

Samsung's Galaxy Note9 also has a huge screen - and comes with a stylus.

If you recall, the iPhone X is IP67 rated for water/dust resistance, while the iPhone XS family bumps that up to IP68.

At $350, the iPhone SE was one of the best "budget" smartphones you can buy. This shows just how expensive the iPhone XS really is in a country like India.
