Apple fans in Singapore get hands on new iPhones

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

Its 256GB version will retail for R3000 more, while the 512GB version will top out at R29 999. In the US, the iPhone XS Max with 512 gigabytes of storage costs $1,449.

Expectedly so, Apple fans not only from the UAE but also from outside the country have kicked off the iPhone frenzy in the country.

It can also be bought on FNB credit cards starting from R689 per month for iPhone Xs 64GB, and R755 for the iPhone Xs Max.

The iPhone XR, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max come with more powerful cameras and more battery time, but the most notable feature about the new phones are the heftier price tags.

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.

A customer looks at Apple's new iPhone XS after it went on sale at the Apple Store in Tokyo's Omotesando shopping district on Friday.

The 10-foot drop pretty much finished off the iPhone X as the rear glass was heavily shattered and further damage was taken on the front.

Simultaneously Charge Apple Watch and Phone: this 4400mAh power bank can simultaneously charge an Apple Watch and an iPhone; Charge iPhone 6 1.8 times or Charges Apple Watch from 7-8 times. Apple is putting the beloved home button out to pasture, in favor of the authenti-face system it debuted on the iPhone X, called FaceID.

When we went hands-on with the iPhone XS and XS Max, we were mainly struck by how similar they felt to the iPhone X-particularly the iPhone XS.

Apple has officially stopped selling the SE.

A new Pixel phone from Google is expected to arrive October 9 that might make Apple people jealous.

The iPhone XS' battery capacity is actually very slightly reduced compared to that of the iPhone X-2,659 mAh to the iPhone X's 2716 mAh-but the iPhone XS Max's battery is relatively beastly at 3,179 mAh, which makes sense given its significantly larger display. It has a 6.4-inch screen, a stylus, an iris reader, and even the ability to plug in a keyboard, mouse and desktop-sized monitor.

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

"The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six attractive finishes".

So when can you get this new iPhone?
