IPhone XS teardown reveals not much has changed inside... except the battery

People handle the new Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max during a media tour at an Apple office in Shanghai, China, September 21, 2018.

Die-hard iPhone fans lined up in the rain at the Apple store on Ste. People also lined up outside the Pasadena store.

This wireless charging dock will be made available in December of this year at Apple Stores (and likely other locations, but Apple Stores are the only stores Belkin's yet announced.) There'll be a black version and a white version, and both versions will cost around $160 Dollars. Meanwhile, on the larger iPhone XS Max, Apple stuck with a simpler two-cell design to deliver the largest battery in any iPhone ever, boasting a total capacity of 3,179 mAh.

The iPhone XS is as much as US$200 more expensive than last year's already pricey iPhone X and represents one of the smallest advances in the product line's history. 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. Huawei told Mothership that it gave away around 200 power banks to customers waiting in line for a new iPhone.

The iFixit teardown showed iPhone Xs and Xs Max used Intel's modem and communication chips instead of Qualcomm's hardware.

If you're shopping for a new phone, it pays to think hard about what you really want and what you're willing to pay for it. Improvements over the previous generation tend to be incremental, but can add up over time - and so do the sums you'll pay for them.


Ivy Wong, a 30-year-old clerk, also failed to resell her 256GB gold iPhone XS Max.

Qualcomm said in July that Apple meant to exclusively use "competitor's modems" in its next iPhone release.

There was one thing Apple forgot to mention about the new camera: all that 32% had to go somewhere, and it turns out the camera bump had to grow a little-your iPhone X case may not fit your iPhone XS.

On whether the high price of the new iPhone model had deterred him in any way, he said: "To me, for every amount that I have paid, the quality has been there".

Have any of you purchased the Apple Watch Series 4?

But not everyone pre-ordered or made appointments.
