Lacklustre sales for new model iPhones in Hong Kong and mainland China

The same phenomenon took place in Singapore when numerous people flocked in front of an Apple store waiting for the release of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

Customers look at the newly launched iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max at the Apple Store in Singapore on Friday.

These flagship devices were announced last week at Apple's keynote in Cupertino and they arrive in stores this morning.

Prices for the new Apple iPhone Xs will start at R22,000 in South Africa - R5,000 more than its main competitor, the Samsung Note 9 - iStore revealed on Thursday. Previous year in the iPhone X, Apple simply connected two rectangular batteries together in order to cram its awkward shaped battery pack in the phone.

The entrepreneur and his friends made pre-orders online and Lim was at the store at 8am (7am Thailand time) to collect their six iPhone XS' and two units of the iPhone XS Maxm, TODAY reported on Friday.

The XS Max - which retails for as much as $2369 for a 512GB handset - and the XS model are on sale from Friday in 30 countries. This means the same phone costs R7,600 more in South Africa than in the USA, not a great deal more than a return flight to NY. The mid-variant with 256GB storage is priced at Rs. 1,14,900 and the top-end 512GB storage model costs Rs. 1,34,900.

China says to 'take countermeasures' after new United States tariffs
The new round of tariffs will take effect on September 24 at a 10 percent level and rise to 25 percent on January 1, 2019. The lower Chinese figure highlights Beijing's inability to match the United States dollar-for-dollar in a tariffs war.

"Now we notice a lot of consumers are considering to buy older versions like iPhone 7 and iPhone 8". The iPhone Xs and Xs Max pack 4GB of RAM, meanwhile the lower-end iPhone XR has 3GB of RAM to work with.

When we went hands-on with the iPhone XS and XS Max, we were mainly struck by how similar they felt to the iPhone X-particularly the iPhone XS.

Apple has an October surprise planned: Another new model, called the iPhone XR is coming Oct. 26 for $750. Apple no longer officially sells it, but you can find one on eBay for about $800.

Apple unveiled its latest of its iPhones at an event on September 12.

Those seriously concerned about the durability of the new iPhones should wait for additional durability tests to hit the web before making any conclusions.
