Apple fans in Singapore finally got their hands on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max on Friday morning (21 September) at the flagship Apple Orchard Road store.

The XS Max with a 6.5-inch screen, the largest display ever in an iPhone, and the XS with a 5.8-inch screen, both of which have a high-end organic light-emitting diode display, will retail for 124,800 yen and 112,800 yen, respectively. Perhaps it is to keep things simple and usually, the amount of battery capacity doesn't necessary represent real world battery life. iPhones in generally are very power efficient considering they come with much smaller batteries than its Android rivals. Moreover, person willing to purchase two phones was given a wristband which allowed him to leave the long queue and return within 30 minutes to retain his position. One Apple Watch on the Apple Watch stand, one iPhone X or iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max, etcetera, and one of whatever other device you have a charging cord for.

Here, the iPhone X stacked on top of the XS and XS Max. Last year, 293 people waited in line for the iPhone 8. While Apple might not drop prices on its phones, it's possible the company may offer an additional gift card.

To reduce the stress on the corners, Apple notched the internal corner of the battery.

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