IPhone Xs MAX Durability Test - How weak is the big iPhone?

Huawei was spotted giving away free power banks to customers in line for a new iPhone model at Apple's store on Orchard Road in Singapore.

Despite the heavy security at the Apple store at 1021 Lincoln Rd., in South Beach, detectives believe it was a targeted heist.

Today, the Apple Watch Series 4 has officially gone on sale in many parts of the world alongside the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

It's that time of year again where people queue up to buy the new phone from a company named after a fruit.

As portrayed in the following video, which was published by YouTube channel, TechSmartt, the test features the original iPhone X pitted against the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Huawei Trolled Apple

As Apple stores prepared to launch the newest products, five people lined up outside stores as early as Sunday night. But those who missed the opening of pre-orders last week have to visit a physical store to get one on the first day.

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max's internals are almost identical: With each, you get a 12 megapixel camera, better-sounding speakers and the ability to pack two SIM cards into one device - a solid perk for global travelers or people who have to switch between a device for work and one for personal use.

This wireless charging dock will be made available in December of this year at Apple Stores (and likely other locations, but Apple Stores are the only stores Belkin's yet announced.) There'll be a black version and a white version, and both versions will cost around $160 United States dollars. Apple says you can squeeze about 30 minutes longer on the XS compared to last year's X, and 90 minutes longer on the Max. The iPhone XS Max starts at Rs 1,09,900 and also will be available by end of this month. Apple no longer includes an adapter for standard headphones; one will set you back $9 if you need it.

And before you ask, the iFixit team didn't find any greater adhesive or other waterproofing to easily explain what got the iPhone XS up to the IP68 water and dust resistance rating (up from the iPhone X's IP67 rating).

"I hoped I could walk in and buy one, however I was told supply for on-site purchase is insufficient", Cao said in Hong Kong.
