  • Apple CEO Tim Cook defends pricing of new iPhones says it's worth the money

Apple fans in Singapore finally got their hands on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max on Friday morning (21 September) at the flagship Apple Orchard Road store.

This accessory costs just $9 and Apple is charging not just a premium for the iPhone Xs Max, but customers will have to head out and purchase the adapter as well as a fast charger.

If your thumb is not ready to let go, you can grab a still-speedy and finger-friendly iPhone 8, which Apple is now selling for $600.

'I always like to get a new bit of tech and flash it around the office a little bit'.

The new iPhones have subtle additions to last year's reimagined iPhone X, the tenth anniversary phone, and do not look very different aside from the ginormous size, several reviewers said.

Wait, isn't the new iPhone the best ever?

Coming to the iPhone XR, this is where we have a big problem, one which nobody seems to be talking about.

The iPhone XS and XS Max don't have fingerprint readers.

The documents state the iPhone XS has a 2,658mAh cell inside, while the iPhone X had a 2,716mAh pack.




Apart from Airtel and Flipkart, distributors Ingram Micro and Redington have announced that the OLED iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max variants will also be made available at over 3,000 and 2,500 retail locations across India, respectively.

Apple has officially stopped selling the SE.

The A12 Bionic chip was designed in house by Apple to take advantage of the neural network processing of artificial intelligence. I found refurbished ones on eBay and elsewhere for $170.

While many Android phones are making the jump to 6GB and 8GB of RAM, Apple is remaining more conservative. Google has wowed in the past with the quality of its camera, as well as its sleek version of the Android operating system. Will people still queue up for an even more expensive iPhone?

The iPhone XS 64GB (yes, it does have the water resistant feature to prevent poolside disaster this summer, as well as the new formulation glass to prevent screen cracking) will go for R21 899.

The Watch also comes in a range of colour schemes.

At $350, the iPhone SE was one of the best "budget" smartphones you can buy.

Now, it's Huawei's turn to jump on the bandwagon with the iPhone XS launch.
