While still outperforming last year's model with e a smaller battery, the iPhone Xs sports the new A12 Bionic chip. According to Apple, though the super-sized iPhone's display will use the most battery power, this configuration will provide users with even more usage time compared to iPhone X (an additional 1.5-hours).

The biggest iPhone with the largest storage will cost US$1,449 and that did not go unnoticed by the reviewers, with many observing that a 512 GB XS Max was actually more expensive than some MacBooks.

This accessory costs just $9 and Apple is charging not just a premium for the iPhone Xs Max, but customers will have to head out and purchase the adapter as well as a fast charger.

Apple has an October surprise planned: Another new model, called the iPhone XR is coming Oct. 26 for $750. The XR appears to be 90 percent as good as the iPhone XS for 75 percent of the price.

As far as the domestic market is concerned, the company has started pre-order for the new 2018 iPhone models, which can be ordered on Flipkart and Airtel online store.

By comparison, last year's iPhone X had a 2,716mAh, which is slightly larger than the new iPhone Xs power pack. Here are five reasons to hold off before buying the iPhone XS and what to get instead. For starters, the first YouTube drop test shows the iPhone XS is a lot more durable than the iPhone X.

Will you be queueing up for the new iPhone?

The iPhone XS comes with price tags of Dh4,229 (64GB), Dh4,859 (256GB) and Dh5,709 (512GB).

Popular tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee (aka MKBHD) posted a video revealing the unboxing and the contents of the iPhone Xs Max.
