Here's how much Apple's new iPhone range will cost in South Africa

'An evolution, not a revolution': Apple's new iPhones score only slightly above the X in reviews

And Samsung's $1,000 Note9 phone, which came out in August, in some ways out-maxes even the iPhone Xs Max.

"We know the current economic situation is not good and many people are strapped for cash". She joined the queue along with the luggage to purchase two iPhone XS Max devices. All this lets you save $800 on your new Apple smartphone, although savings aren't instant, instead being offered as bill credit over 30 months.

At a large Apple store in Omotesando, one of the trendiest areas in Tokyo, staff high-fived around 250 people who had waited in the rain when the doors opened at 8 a.m.

Apple introduced the more affordable variant of iPhone X- iPhone XR- which starts at Rs 76,900 (64GB variant) in India.

Another Apple fan Rachel Liew, 28, had been looking forward to a new phone upgrade and wanted to be among the first to get her hands on the latest device because, she quipped: "I don't want to be jealous when I see my friends (with) it and I can't have it".

"It's quite a scary moment for us finding out exactly what the iPhone is like", the co-founders of Mous, a company that sells mobile phone cases, said in Sydney.


Dual SIM functionality isn't as commonly sought after in European markets, but one person queuing in London, who asked not to be identified, said the purchase was entirely based on the appeal of no longer having to carry two phones on global business trips. Elsewhere, there were much shorter queues with sales limited those that had placed online orders.

KitGuru Says: My iPhone 8 Plus usually gets me through two full days, so I would struggle to move back down to something with a smaller battery. You don't have a separate one anymore. Consumers likely feel they'll have better luck grabbing one from a retail store.

TechSmartt dropped the iPhone X (last year's model), the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max from an unofficial pocket height, head height and around 10 feet onto a tennis court.

This year's iPhones are some of the most expensive smartphones on the market. The iPhone XS Max prices in India have been set as Rs. 1,09,900, Rs. 1,24,900, and Rs. 1,44,900 for the 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB respectively. The overall price range is $449 to $1,449 now, up from $349 to $1,149 previously.

Heads up - you can pre-order from Digicape today, and they offer a range of options with regards financing. Cao Zhongqiang from Shanghai was told he couldn't get any devices on the first day without an existing order.
