Happy campers kick off iPhone XS queues in UAE

Happy campers kick off iPhone XS queues in UAE

When Apple announced the new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max on Thursday, it confirmed suspicions that it would be the first phone models to crack the $2,000 mark.

The crowds might have a bit smaller than last year's iPhone X launch, but if you thought ten years of launches would lessen the die-hard Apple fandom, think again.

The information comes from Digitimes, a sometimes-accurate source of information on the supply side of consumer electronics.

The operation executive said he had already pre-ordered two XS Max phones online but decided on a whim to join the queue to get two more. Note that the XR also trumps the iPhone X, which has a 2,716mAh battery.

Patriots HC Bill Belichick says Josh Gordon trade still not done
Gordon is already part of the active roster , and he's also listed as a second-string receiver on the depth chart . And yes, that means his trade is official, even if Bill Belichick refuses to admit that the trade is official .

At the time of writing, all variants of both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have sold out on the Apple website, meaning that customers will have to queue up in real life.

With a larger 6.5-inch screen, the iPhone XS Max unsurprisingly has a larger capacity battery of 3,174mAh, which is the largest battery any iPhone has had.

Apple never officially called capacity batteries in their smartphones and the new iPhone XS, Max XS and XR are not an exception.

Last week, Apple unveiled its new range of iPhones and fans around the world went berserk after the new features.

"I'm keeping one phone for myself and selling the other three phones to make a profit", he said. In spite of this reduction, Apple claims the new handset can last for 30 minutes longer than the old handset.

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.

With every new iPhone release, Apple sticks to the same script.

Trump’s supremely unhelpful comments on Brett Kavanaugh
Ford has alleged that while at a party during their high school years, Kavanaugh pushed her into a bedroom and assaulted her. She says she tried to scream, but that Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth to silence her.

Still, it's interesting to see such a significant difference between the $749 XR and the $999 XS. The iPhone Xs, by comparison, comes with a 5.8-inch screen. In fact, specs inside iPhones besides the chips that power them don't give you a precise idea of what kind of performance to expect from the handset.
