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

Once again, Apple saw long lines at some of its stores by customers wanting to snag a new iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max.

As reported by Yahoo Lifestyle Singapore yesterday, a large crowd of people had already begun queuing outside the store a day prior to the new phones' release.

These flagship devices were announced last week at Apple's keynote in Cupertino and they arrive in stores this morning.

Trump also quoted Fox News in another tweet which claimed that North Korea had agreed to denuclearize and "we've come a long way". Speaking at a joint press conference with Moon, Kim said he will visit the South's capital Seoul "in the near future".

The iPhone XR, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max come with more powerful cameras and more battery time, but the most notable feature about the new phones are the heftier price tags. Additionally, Apple has also partnered with e-commerce portal Flipkart, and customers can place pre-orders for the various iPhone XS models starting at 12:01 AM. In the USA, as of midday Friday new online iPhone XS orders aren't scheduled to arrive until between October 5 and October 12.

And while that might sound like a lot, I still can't help but to wonder how long the XS Max would last if it had a 4,000 mAh battery like you get in a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or a Huawei P20 Pro. It's hard to glean concrete conclusions at this early stage of the game but we should be able to gather a more solid understanding over the coming days and weeks.

The iPhone XS Max is priced at Rs 1,09,900 for the 64GB variant, Rs 1,24,900 for the 256GB variant and Rs 1,44,900 for the 512GB variant. Here are five reasons to hold off before buying the iPhone XS and what to get instead.

The 10-foot drop pretty much finished off the iPhone X as the rear glass was heavily shattered and further damage was taken on the front.

KitGuru Says: My iPhone 8 Plus usually gets me through two full days, so I would struggle to move back down to something with a smaller battery.

You can buy an iPhone X, which is 95 percent as good as the new XS. "I could hardly become optimistic about the new iPhone sales this year". All this lets you save $800 on your new Apple smartphone, although savings aren't instant, instead being offered as bill credit over 30 months.
