There are a few things you should know before emptying your wallet at the Apple store. The iPhone 8 came with just 2 GB of RAM. But they haven't all gone on sale yet - and there are reasons to hold off on the two most-expensive ones that hit stores on Friday: the $1,000 iPhone XS and $1,100 XS Max.
In fact, for the average Indian, it will take up to 59.9 days of work to be able to afford the new iPhone XS. Yes - Apple would be in serious trouble if it wasn't. The excitement is so much that the Apple fans in Singapore stood in a queue in front of the Apple Store ahead of the latest iPhones launch.
But the changes in the XS are incremental.
The iPhone XS Max continues to make use of a dual-battery system, and this has a capacity of 12.08Wh. Watch it before reading further if you hate spoilers.
Earlier this month, Apple debuted the successor to its iPhone X at a special event at the Steve Jobs theatre in Cupertino, California.
Apple made a big mistake by removing its smallest and most affordable iPhone from its lineup.
IPhone XS Pre-Order Deals Are About To Expire
In terms of dimensions, iPhone XS is identical to the X, which means all older cases and accessories will be compatible. This chipset was the first to use the technology to 7 nanometers, while all the other brands continue to operate 10 Nm.
TechSmartt dropped the new XS and XS Max - as well as last year's iPhone X - from three (loosely defined) heights: pocket height, head height, and roughly 10 feet.
If you want to finance a base model iPhone XS Max, you're actually going to pay a premium of more than 50 percent on a monthly basis above the figure Cook quoted-$45.79 per month. The iPhone XR also gets portrait mode and depth control, just like the iPhone Xs.
Prices for the cheaper iPhone XR, expected in South Africa on October 26, have not yet been released.
Along with this big display, Apple has tucked the new A12 Bionic processor under the glass and metal body. But that's for a phone priced at $699, well below either the iPhone XS Max or the $999 iPhone XS. The 512 GB iPhone XS Max will cost Rs 1,44,900 in the country. It works about 90 percent of the time for me.
Apple never reveals the actual battery size of its iPhones.
The original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S all had screens that measured 3.5 inches.
