Also, while we're on the subject of things that are missing from the packaging, there is no Lightning-to-3.5mm audio adapter, since no iPhone sold by the technology giant on its website features a mobile phone with a headphone jack. The iPhone XS starts at S$1,649, while the cheaper iPhone XR - available from next month - starts at S$1,229.

We will soon start our iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max review coverage.

Lastly, the iPhone XR is priced at Rs 76,900 for the 64GB variant, Rs 81,900 for the 256GB variant and Rs 91,900 for the 512GB variant.

YouTubers and global entrepreneurs were among the first people in the world to buy the new Apple iPhones when models went on sale in Australia. However, there are two massive differences.

The lukewarm response to the new iPhones, with most models surpassing the 10,000 yuan mark (US$1,463), could indicate that not even the most popular must-have gadgets among affluent Chinese consumers are immune to the effects of the Sino-American trade spat. To pre-order one of the variants of the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max from Flipkart, head here.

Last but not least, Apple's 6.1-inch LCD-equipped iPhone XR is slated to offer 1.5-hours or longer of additional battery life in comparison to its most direct predecessor, the iPhone 8 Plus.


Apple fans in Singapore finally got their hands on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max on Friday morning (21 September) at the flagship Apple Orchard Road store. Featuring a 6.2-inch (17.5cm) 19:9 Max Vision Full HD+ display, Motorola One Power is powered by Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor along with 4GB of RAM.

Lebanese Judy Asaad, who came with his mother and was the most ecstatic customer, gamely posed for photos and videos. It's not a huge difference, and the recently launched phone is likely better optimized thanks to the newer A12 Bionic chipset inside.

Airtel Online Store, as promised, is also taking pre-orders for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

iPhone XR comes in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED.

British duo Lucy Hutchinson and James Griffith flew into Australia on Thursday night and made a beeline for the George Street outlet to be sure their new iPhone accessories were a snug fit. The phone is iP67 water resistant.
