The awesome folks at iFixit have managed to obtain them as well and diligently pop up the devices to show the world what made these new phones tick.

The new charging dock is optimized for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Miami Beach police say Maria Henriquez and her boyfriend, Vincente Cruz, were among the hordes of tech fans waiting in lines across the country Friday morning to get their hands on Apple's new $1,000 iPhone XS and $1,100 XS Max. The iPhone X lasted about 9.5 hours in our own WiFi battery test, coming in well behind most other flagships previous year.

As portrayed in the following video, which was published by YouTube channel, TechSmartt, the test features the original iPhone X pitted against the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Apple expert Kuo Ming-chi expects the U.S. tech giant to ship between 75 million and 80 million new iPhone models in the next 12 months, with the XR model accounting for 55-60% of sales with the more expensive Max accounting for about a quarter of total sales.

So when can you get this new iPhone? But, what about that older model iPhone you have?

The company's 2018 lineup, specifically the iPhone XS and XS Max, delivers on that promise: They're the smartest, fastest, best iPhones we've seen to date.

Huawei can't stop taking shots at Apple. 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.

iFixit gave both phones a six repairability score out of 10, noting that critical display and battery repairs are still a priority in the design and that the display can be removed without removing the TrueDepth array.

Most customers ordering the new iPhone did so online, but there are reports that shipments were being delayed to Monday.

Long story short: One iPhone XS Max survived being in a bowl of fresh water for 30 minutes with no visible damage.

Half an hour after the walk-in sales started at 10am, scalpers would only take 512GB iPhone XS Max phones at HK$300-500 higher than the original price, while some refused to take any more of the models with smaller storage.

To use Reachability on modern iPhones, you need to place a finger at the bottom of the display and quickly swipe down.

When we went hands-on with the iPhone XS and XS Max, we were mainly struck by how similar they felt to the iPhone X-particularly the iPhone XS.
