The iPhone XS Max is priced at Rs 1,09,900 for the 64GB option. 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. Apple did use an L-shaped battery on the iPhone X also, but to get the L-shape, the company utilised two separate battery units.

Apple on Friday released iPhone XS and XS Max. The iPhone X lasted about 9.5 hours in our own WiFi battery test, coming in well behind most other flagships a year ago. The new AppleCare+ warranty program for the XS and XS Max replaces stolen iPhones for up to 2 incidents with deductibles ranging from $229 to $269.

But at this point, buying an updated iPhone is like getting a new Ferrari - you'll find a faster engine, a new coat of paint, and a few new bells and whistles, but beneath all that it's still basically the same auto you could have bought past year.

Meanwhile, across the border in Hong Kong, the story is a different one.

This dock supports Apple Watch's Nightstand mode "for optimal viewing angle" and is able to charge "through most phone cases up to 3mm thick".

The use of glass on front and back of the new models "doubles the likelihood of drop damage", and even the smallest crack on the back glass will result in you having to replace the whole chassis, according to iFixIt.

Outside of the phone simply being bigger, it's the same ol' iPhone X form factor and design I've used for the past 11 months.

Because the XS Max has such a large display, though, it has significantly more pixels than the older iPhones.

"I think it's very good marketing by Huawei to hijack Apple's opening". The Pixel 2 and Samsung Galaxy S9 offer a similar feature, too.

I actually feel as if the iPhone XS Max is more comfortable to hold than the Note 9.

Look for our review of the iPhone X and XS Max in the later part of next week.

The studies by fix firm iFixit and chip analysis firm TechInsights, published this week, are among the first detailed teardowns of the phones, which reviews suggested were a subtle upgrade from the tenth anniversary iPhone X.
