Apple iPhone enthusiasts from far and wide descend on Australian stores

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

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

In Singapore, they handed out company's 10,000 mAh Huawei Supercharge power banks to people waiting in lines from the previous night, as scores of potential buyers chose to spent the night to secure a chance of getting the new devices.

"I bought the iPhone X previous year, but I took it back the next day and stuck with my iPhone 7 Plus", she said.

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

The most expensive version costs $1,500. Meanwhile, on the larger iPhone XS Max, Apple stuck with a simpler two-cell design to deliver the largest battery in any iPhone ever, boasting a total capacity of 3,179 mAh.

Apple expert Kuo Ming-chi expects the United States tech giant to ship between 75 million and 80 million new iPhone models in the next 12 months, with the XR model accounting for 55-60% of sales with the more expensive Max accounting for about a quarter of total sales.

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.

One of the complaints I saw this week was that reaching for the notification shade when using the XS Max with one hand was hard and uncomfortable.

"Two or three years earlier, Hong Kong sold the product earlier than the mainland, so many mainland customers come deliberately to buy the phones". As frustrating as that is, iOS does offer a workaround.

Apple has an October surprise planned: Another new model, called the iPhone XR is coming Oct. 26 for $750. Users activated the feature with a double-tap on the home button. "You'll need it. Courtesy of Huawei". When done right, the screen will move down, putting whatever is at the top of the screen within thumb's reach. The iPhone XR also gets portrait mode and depth control, just like the iPhone Xs. So despite the smaller battery, an iPhone Xs on iOS 12 offers an improvement over the iPhone X on iOS 11.

A seven-layer colour process gives the glass back handsome nuanced hues, and the aluminium band and camera trim are colour matched to give a sophisticated finish.
