While it might seem like a good idea, it comes at the cost of a smaller battery capacity of 2,658mAh compared to iPhone X's 2,716mAh.

The information comes from Digitimes, a sometimes-accurate source of information on the supply side of consumer electronics. In India, an average earner can well forget about buying the new iPhone. Also note that the iPhone XR, which has a 6.1-inch screen, is bigger than the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, and 0.1 inches thicker than both the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.

But most importantly the device takes on the futuristic all-screen design Apple first introduced with the iPhone X past year.

Our own testing showed similar results using the Speedtest.net app: "downloads reached as high as 103 Mbps on the iPhone Xs and 96.9 Mbps on the iPhone Xs Max [.] By comparison, the older iPhone X averaged just 15.5 Mbps down and under 6 Mbps uploads". See below for a look at the iPhone XS in action.

"The amusing thing is though, the iPhone XS Max is thinner than all of those phones at just 7.7mm". Preorders for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max opened this past Friday, and there has been plenty of positive chatter about the phones all over social media since they were announced last week. Will people still queue up for an even more expensive iPhone?

$1,000 iPhone XS expensive? The Xs starts at $999 while the Xs Max has a $1,099 price tag. He added that he had already placed a pre-order for two iPhone XS Max line but he made a decision to queue up to get more units to make a profit. For clarity's sake, we looked at 24 month plans for the iPhone Xs only, but if you want more details, head on over to the websites. It just feels like Apple is missing an easy and relatively affordable opportunity to provide the "complete package", which many would expect when spending $1,000 on a new smartphone. Apple claims the XS can last up to 30 minutes longer than the X, though, and that's likely due to the more efficient 7nm A12 chipset on board.

Bezels have been drastically reduced on the iPhone Xr and the American tech giant's signature Face ID system is present at the top, serving as the primary method of unlocking the device.

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.
