Apple fans in Singapore get hands on new iPhones

Apple fans in Singapore get hands on new iPhones

"This is a special day for me", said the 20-year-old, who had come to Singapore especially to queue for the latest iPhone XS Max.

Buying - and keeping up with - technology has turned into a pricey game.

As a result, many mainland buyers, and in particular scalpers who had hoped to make quick money by "flipping" the devices, are reportedly in a panic, rushing to cancel their orders with Apple. But whereas the iPhone X had (and the iPhone XS Max still has) a double-battery configuration-one for the vertical line of the L and the other for the horizontal-the iPhone XS has one L-shaped battery.

All three iPhone models managed to survive the pocket drop, which is not shocking given the handset's premium ultra-durable stainless-steel and glass construction. Does it have enough value to trade it in or sell it on the open market? Mothership.sg report that while the iPhone fans were observing their annual ritual of queuing up to get their hands on the fabled devices, Huawei staff took the opportunity to not-so-subtly have a go at the battery life of iPhones by handing out powerbanks to the waiting crowds. It's the first eSIM in an iPhone, but interestingly the same as the one found in the Apple Watch 3, iFixit pointed out.

"I know. I know it's costly for a phone but I think it's worth it anyway", he laughs.

In India, Jio and Airtel came up with eSIM activation plans for Apple Watch Series 3 a year ago. It was understood that about 200 power banks were given out that night and the surprise giveaway had triggered a mini frenzy as some people were seen chasing after the staff for free power banks. Rather than persuading users to upgrade to the most-advanced, expensive phone each year, Apple's goal these days is to steadily raise average prices, while expanding the total number of active devices to support sales of accessories and digital services like streaming music and video.

If you have Wi-Fi handy, phones can be repurposed into TV remotes, dedicated Skype stations, baby monitors, or even digital cookbooks. While our first impressions are positive, we'll be taking a closer look at the phones to provide consumers with more information for making a buying decision. Clad in a silver, space grey, or a rich gold finish and featuring the new A12 Bionic chip inside, the recently debuted iPhone XS represents the best tech Apple can jam in a phone.
