IPhone XS Teardown Reveals L-Shaped Battery

'An evolution, not a revolution': Apple's new iPhones score only slightly above the X in reviews

'An evolution, not a revolution': Apple's new iPhones score only slightly above the X in reviews

With the ability to pre-order and reserve a slot to collect the latest phones, fanfare at the Apple Store was less than earlier years of the iPhone, which saw hundreds of hopeful customers camping outside overnight.

In a clever marketing strategy by Apple's competitor Huawei, representatives clad in Huawei t-shirts handed out free powerbanks to those in the queue outside Apple's store ahead of the launch.

Elsewhere, as you'd expect, the XS and XS Max share a lot of engineering and design traits with the iPhone X. However, there are a couple important improvements, most notably in the antenna and camera departments.

Tech fix site iFixit posted an extensive joint iPhone XS and XS Max teardown early Friday and found them mostly similar to last year's iPhone X.

As far as the domestic market is concerned, the company has started pre-order for the new 2018 iPhone models, which can be ordered on Flipkart and Airtel online store. There's something about the way the two curved edges meet on each side of the Note 9 that, by itself isn't noticeable, but when holding the iPhone XS Max at the same time, just feels weird.

"Now we notice a lot of consumers are considering to buy older versions like iPhone 7 and iPhone 8". That battery is actually smaller than the 2,716 mAh battery found in its predecessor, the iPhone X.

I don't have big hands and have resisted the trend of bigger phones as much as I possibly could over the past few years.

The iPhone Xs starts at Rs. 99,900 for the 64GB base variant. The iPhone XR also gets portrait mode and depth control, just like the iPhone Xs.

Although you'll only find a single rear 12-megapixel camera on the back of the XR, Apple says it can still offer the depth of field effect you only usually find from dual-camera systems.

If your thumb is not ready to let go, you can grab a still-speedy and finger-friendly iPhone 8, which Apple is now selling for $600.

Apple has an October surprise planned: Another new model, called the iPhone XR is coming Oct. 26 for $750. You don't have a separate one anymore.

The new iPhones look similar to their predecessor.
