IPhone XS, XS Max show off 'battery origami' in iFixit teardown

The iPhone XR looks set to be crazy popular The iPhone XR looks set to be crazy popular

Something else that often happens this time of year is the trolling of iPhone fans, and this year we have Huawei poking fun by offering "mind-boosting" juice that doesn't contain a trace of "Apple" to customers outside Apple's flagship store on Regent Street in London.

TechSmartt dropped the new XS and XS Max - as well as last year's iPhone X - from three (loosely defined) heights: pocket height, head height, and roughly 10 feet.

For a select few, however, purchasing a new iPhone is little more than a race to see who can destroy it first (and reap the YouTube ad revenue rewards).

TechInsights' dissection of a 256-gigabyte storage capacity iPhone Xs Max, on the other hand, revealed DRAM from Micron but NAND memory from SanDisk, which is owned by Western Digital Corp and works with Toshiba for its supply of NAND chips. Furthermore, there's a 5 percent off if you pre-order the phone using a HDFC Bank credit card, RBL Bank credit card, or the Axis Bank Buzz credit card.

The guts of the new phone look very similar to last year's iPhone X. One of the most interesting features is the battery on the XS. The iPhone XS suffered no real visible damage but the iPhone XS Max ended up with a sizable scuff across the top and some scratches on the screen. "Apple has been proven to have good quality products".

Some people wearing Huawei t-shirts started giving away power banks to the hundreds of people waiting in line to get their hands on the newly announced iPhones.


"I stand in lines regardless because I'm a YouTuber, so I film it and I post it", said Muhammad Flood.

It was quite the scene outside the Apple store on Orchard Road.

That phone was Apple's first to come with water resistance and its first to lose the standard headphone jack.

Have any of you purchased the Apple Watch Series 4?

The new iOS 12 is available on devices that run on iOS 11, bringing the new capability to older models like the iPhone 5S, and the new iPhone XR arriving in October.

The focus on pre-orders led to disappointment for some.
