IPhone Xs teardown shows new battery, expanded waterproofing

IPhone Xs teardown shows new battery, expanded waterproofing

We bet Apple fans didn't see that coming.

"The new iPhone XR has a gorgeous new aerospace-grade aluminium and glass enclosure that has IP67 protection from liquids and dust, long all-day battery life and comes in six lovely finishes".

Despite the lower capacity battery Apple says the iPhone XS lasts up to 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X. While the iPhone Xs Max features a very clean finish to go along with that gorgeous-looking gold variant, he did mention that it is 2018, and Apple continues to bundle that regular charger that it has been doing for several years now. It also features 4GB of RAM.

That's what appealed to Li Jun, who works for a trading company in Guangzhou and travelled to Hong Kong to pick up an iPhone XS for HKD 9,899 ($1,265).

iPhone XR comes in six new finishes: white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT) RED.

How much does it cost?

So I think that's cool. "MOD 4 LYFE!" Clarke wrote under the picture (MOD = Mother of Dragons). "A little kind of peace out". If you want to know that Emilia Clarke will never really be done with Game of Thrones , look no further than her arm.

Innovation isn't cheap but that's what our customers want, argues Apple CEO Tim Cook.

The iPhone XS, pronounced "ten S", and XS Max were launched on September 12. Are you planning to use it without a protective case?

Apple in a required filing with China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has revealed the amount of RAM and the battery capacity of each of its new iPhones - information the Cupertino-based company doesn't readily advertise.

Cook thinks Facebook's Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal is so big that it warrants "well-crafted regulation".

In an interview with Good Morning America, Cook was asked about the $1,099 starting price for the forthcoming iPhone XS Max. Apple did eventually post the betas for the new phone, so it isn't an issue that's likely to last a long time, but it could be a problem if your new iPhone XS or XS Max arrives at 8:00AM and the betas aren't posted until later in the day.
