Apple iPhone enthusiasts from far and wide descend on Australian stores

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

Meanwhile, to complement its absolutely massive 6.5-inch OLED display, Apple's iPhone XS Max is equipped an equally massive 3,174 mAh battery.

Most customers pre-ordered their new handsets for collection ahead of the store's 8am opening, but about a dozen eager buyers without a reservation turned up to queue through cold and windy conditions on Thursday afternoon.

The iPhone 6 and 6 PlusBusiness InsiderTo the surprise of many, Apple in late 2016 announced the iPhone 5S would get a true successor, called the iPhone SE.

Apple also introduced iPhone XR.

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

At the launch of the iPhone XS alongside the new Apple Watch at Apple's headquarters in California on September 12, Apple's chief design officer Jony Ive said the new phones are the company's "uncompromised vision for the future." .

The next walk-in customer to Mikheev was Dmitrii Iakovlev, who was equally elated upon receiving his new iPhone after the long wait.

The first interesting revelation is that the iPhone XS has a smaller battery than the one found inside last year's iPhone X - 10.13Wh compared to 10.35Wh. The iPhone XS Max, meanwhile, is worth Dh4,649, Dh5,279 and Dh6,129, respectively.

"But this decrease in capacity comes with a wild new battery configuration", said iFixIt. The new iPhone models price in India starts at Rs. 99,900, and the cheaper iPhone XR model will go on sale in October.

The new iPhone Xs, with improved battery life, and water resistance, will cost R22,000 for the 64GB version, R25,000 for the 256GB version, and R30,000 for the 512GB version. If you miss the old days when a phone could fit in a pair of skinny jeans, hunt down a 4-inch iPhone SE.

Apple's walled-garden approach to iOS does have some advantages.

You can buy an iPhone X, which is 95 percent as good as the new XS.

The smartphones also come with dual-SIM capabilities, with the second slot using an eSIM - although this will not be available in the UAE for now. And you'll be $200 richer.
