Happy campers kick off iPhone XS queues in UAE

But of course, now that Apple's newest iPhones - the iPhone XS and XS Max - have had time spread across the internet, developers are beginning to uncover secrets about the smartphones, specifically in the battery department. One good way to buy the iPhone XR is to avail Amazon offers for new users. Both devices hit stores on September 21.

The larger iPhone XS Max, meanwhile, has a 3,174mAh battery.

Given that the iPhone XR shares numerous same specs as the iPhone XS - most importantly, that new A12 Bionic processor that puts Android phones to shame - and the screen is marginally bigger, it's widely predicted to be a hit.

The iPhone XS teardown reveals one big change compared to the iPhone X, and that is the battery, which is now a single unit that is L-shaped, compared to the previous year, which saw two batteries shaped like an L. Read our full iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max review here.

"We were here for iPhone 8 and iPhone X so even though we forgot to bring sleeping bags, it is well worth the wait", he said. "In a note to investors, Cowen analyst Matthew D. Ramsay reportedly said, "...that Apple will not bundle the DAC headset converter "dongle" in its new iPhone models". According to him, he has been queuing up for the latest iPhone models for years and this is his first time to be No.1 in the queue. It will cost slightly more than the iPhone XS at Dh4,649.


Apple's Mega Event 2018 witnessed the launch of revolutionary devices. 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.

Theoretically Apple is offering the XR at a cheaper price, but I don't think they have lowered their profit margins because of it. Display adds a significant amount to a phone's manufacturing cost, so Apple is saving a lot of money by packing in a very inferior display. Consumers have to look past marketing gimmicks and make smart purchases, the iPhone XR doesn't seem to be one for now.

Earlier this week, regulatory filings in China revealed RAM and battery capacity for Apple's new iPhones.

For example, in the networks of AT&T Xs-version of the new iPhone showed the highest average download speed data: 72,24 megabits per second. The introductory price of the XR will be at $749.
