Buyers of the iPhone XS undeterred by eye-watering prices, few upgrades

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".

Both the iPhone Xs and Xs Max can be pre-ordered by directly visiting iStore South Africa's website from September 21. More details on U.S. Cellular's new iPhone deal can be found at the source link below.

The more affordable XR with a 6.1-inch liquid crystal display, which will be available in six colors including blue and yellow, will cost 84,800 yen and go on sale on Oct 26.

Selfies also get this threatment with Portrait mode on the front-facing TrueDepth camera. But this time on the iPhone XS, according to iFixit, Apple used multiple layer sizes and folded electrode sheet to create a curvy power pack that neatly bends around other important iPhone internals like the logic board, Taptic engine and memory.

"I'll never let it (his iPhone) go", he said.
