This is the fastest and most efficient processor the USA technology firm has ever created and is also much more efficient meaning longer battery life.

The new iPhone Xs, with improved battery life, and water resistance, will cost R22,000 for the 64GB version, R25,000 for the 256GB version, and R30,000 for the 512GB version.

We covered the main attractions from that launch event here, and Apple fans would have been excited to see that the South African release date was set for September 28.

The XS Max battery uses two cells and has a larger 12.08 Wh capacity. Small changes include an added antenna band on the bottom of each device near the Lightning port (which iFixit speculates has to do with Gigabit LTE), a 32 percent larger wide angle sensor and increased pixel size for the rear camera in both phones, and a larger taptic engine and extended logic board in the iPhone XS Max. While I would give you points for saying BlackBerry, it is, of course, Apple, and the people are queuing up to get their hands on either the iPhone XS or XS Max that were announced last week. She joined the queue along with the luggage to purchase two iPhone XS Max devices.

In the Bay Area, a handful of people camped outside the apple store in Palo Alto overnight.

If your thumb is not ready to let go, you can grab a still-speedy and finger-friendly iPhone 8, which Apple is now selling for $600. Apple is putting the beloved home button out to pasture, in favor of the authenti-face system it debuted on the iPhone X, called FaceID.

Russian Federation warns Israel of ‘response’ after plane downed over Syria
It added that by the time the Russian plane was struck, the Israeli jets were already out of Syria and back in their own airspace. Moscow says the trace of the Il-20 on flight control radars disappeared during an attack by four Israeli F-16 jets in Latakia.

Apple has officially stopped selling the SE. I found refurbished ones on eBay and elsewhere for $170.

Other iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4 customers with pre-orders today are seeing delays in their shipments, with some getting a message their package delivery has been delayed until Monday.

The Watch also comes in a range of colour schemes. But it turns out that inside, it's the iPhone XS that diverges with an unusual new battery design. Apple no longer officially sells it, but you can find one on eBay for about $800.

So when can you get this new iPhone?

So what do all these new technological tricks mean for the new iPhones as a whole?
