Apple Fans Line Up For Most Expensive iPhone Yet

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

Now that the first batch of Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max been released in select markets throughout the world, you can expect to hear plenty of things regarding these devices now that they have arrived into consumers hands.

According to the report from Singapore Times, iPhone fans in huge number started queuing in the front of Apple Store located at Orchard Road by 8 am in the morning. That particularly location is Apple's first store in Southeast Asia, which opened for business around a year and a half ago.

Though it features a battery with just 2,942 mAh - essentially right in-between its smaller and bigger siblings, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max - it's reasonable to assume that the iPhone XR's longer battery life claims are associated with its use of an new LRD display, as opposed to the OLED panels used on the iPhone XS models. "This is a special day for me", said the 20-year-old, who had come to Singapore especially to queue for the latest iPhone XS Max.

The entrepreneur and his friends made pre-orders online and Lim was at the store at 8am (7am Thailand time) to collect their six iPhone XS' and two units of the iPhone XS Maxm, TODAY reported on Friday.

As a result, many mainland buyers, and in particular scalpers who had hoped to make quick money by "flipping" the devices, are reportedly in a panic, rushing to cancel their orders with Apple.

Prices for the larger iPhone Xs Max, with a 16.5cm screen, start at R24,000 for the 64GB version, R27,000 for the 256GB version, and top out at a whopping R32,000 for the 512GB version.

"It cost me more than $1,700", Quan Vu says smiling as he caresses his new iPhone XS Max. Be sure to read iFixit's full teardown, as it has some truly fascinating finds in it, and head down to the comments section to tell us what you think of the iPhone Xs and Xs Max!

"It's quite a scary moment for us finding out exactly what the iPhone is like", the co-founders of Mous, a company that sells mobile phone cases, said in Sydney.

Apple also introduced iPhone XR. Here are five reasons to hold off before buying the iPhone XS and what to get instead.

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.

So what do all these new technological tricks mean for the new iPhones as a whole?
