First iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max Pre-Orders in Canada Have Shipped

A year ago I was quick to order the iPhone X, and it arrived at my address on the day of launch, I didn't have it right at 8am but I had it from day one, with no queuing required. In his tweet, Geskin says the XS has a 2,658mAh cell.

Both the iPhone Xs and Xs Max can be pre-ordered by directly visiting iStore South Africa's website from September 21. They also found that new smartphones technology support QAM and License Assisted Access, which was not in the iPhone X. Further, the iPhone XR seems to have a mind-boggling battery capacity considering its comparatively cheaper price tag that is a whopping 2,942 mAh lasting around an hour and a half when compared to last year's iPhone 8 Plus which was till date the largest battery life holder. Apple claims the XS can last up to 30 minutes longer than the X, though, and that's likely due to the more efficient 7nm A12 chipset on board. Similarly, the iPhone X had 3GB of RAM, and I have yet to meet an owner of the device who complains about lack of memory for background apps.

Battery size, of course, doesn't tell the whole story. However, even after a full year, the hardware has not hit the market and Apple apparently wants to get rid of the mention of it for good.The company has removed nearly all references to AirPower from its official website, Cnet reported.

The great end-of-year, gift giving Christmas sales season has now well and truly begun for Apple, the pain for its competitors is now intensified as Apple's products are ready and available, and the iOS 12 revolution has been live streamed and is available to just about every iOS user on the planet - rock on!

At this stage, when the best iPhone costs $US1,000 or more, I'd fully expect it to come with a set of essential accessories to make the most of the device.

The 5.8-inch iPhone Xs and 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max feature Super Retina displays, a faster and improved dual camera system, the first 7-nanometer chip in a smartphone among other features. Like I said before, specs really don't matter when it comes to iPhones, but it's nice to know the details anyway.
