IPhone XS and XS Max drop test reveals which will crack first

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

The event took place on the eve of September 20 at Apple's flagship Orchard Road store, the night before it opened its doors to customers.

Hours after the first video, TechSmartt also posted a video that tests whether the iPhone XS and XS Max are really as waterproof as Apple claims (which is up to IP68 specifications) - or even better.

The turnout on Friday was in line with reliable Apple tipster Ming-Chi Kuo, who issued a research note outlining his opinions on a lower interest prediction in the first-week pre-orders of the iPhone XS. The iPhone 8 came with just 2 GB of RAM.

The iPhone XS Max is said to have a larger cell at 3,174mAh, which is one of the largest we've ever seen on an iPhone product. A buyer would have to shell out Rs 76,900 for the cheapest model of the new phones, the 64 GB iPhone XR in India, while the iPhone XS would cost Rs 1,34,900.

Apple made a big mistake by removing its smallest and most affordable iPhone from its lineup.

Apple also introduced iPhone XR. The XR appears to be 90 percent as good as the iPhone XS for 75 percent of the price.




The iPhone XS, pronounced "ten S", and XS Max were launched on September 12.

When Apple announced the iPhone X a year ago, it was their most expensive iPhone yet.

The use of glass on front and back of the new models "doubles the likelihood of drop damage", and even the smallest crack on the back glass will result in you having to replace the whole chassis, according to iFixIt. On Wall Street, the consensus is that Apple will hike the iPhone ASP by 6% during fiscal 2019.

Apple quietly discontinued a few older iPhones to make room for the new models. I found refurbished ones on eBay and elsewhere for $170.

The biggest iPhone with the largest storage will cost US$1,449 and that did not go unnoticed by the reviewers, with many observing that a 512 GB XS Max was actually more expensive than some MacBooks.

Samsung's Galaxy Note9 also has a huge screen - and comes with a stylus. You don't have a separate one anymore.
