IPhone XS teardown reveals not much has changed inside... except the battery

Tech Insights Apple iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max pre-orders begin today in India: Here's how to book it

Lastly, the iPhone XS Max does get half a screen crack owing mostly due to the weight difference compared to the iPhone XS. And just like that new Ferrari, these new iPhones are going to cost you a lot of money. And while early adopters patiently await the delivery of their brand-new handsets, it appears that a few have already made their debut in a new hands-on drop test.

That makes teardowns the only way of establishing the breakdown of parts in the phones, although analysts also recommend caution in drawing conclusions because Apple sometimes uses more than one supplier for a part.

The iFixit teardown showed iPhone Xs and Xs Max used Intel's modem and communication chips instead of Qualcomm's hardware.

As noted, the really interesting change is in the iPhone XS' battery. Clad in a silver, space grey, or a rich gold finish and featuring the new A12 Bionic chip inside, the recently debuted iPhone XS represents the best tech Apple can jam in a phone.

Again, the Plus version has a larger screen and a second lens.

Huawei can't stop taking shots at Apple.

Apple recently launched three new iPhones - iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.

iFixit gave both phones a six repairability score out of 10, noting that critical display and battery repairs are still a priority in the design and that the display can be removed without removing the TrueDepth array.

"In general, it's a good idea to keep an old smartphone as a backup in case your shiny new model breaks for any reason", suggests BensBargains, "but you can certainly reuse it elsewhere in your life at the same time". Apple no longer sells it, though you can get it from some wireless carriers and other retailers, at least for now. Memoji, an animated emoji cartoon you can customize to look like you, requires users to access an iPhone with Face ID to create and send one to a friend. That's what appealed to Li Jun, who works for a trading company in Guangzhou and traveled to Hong Kong to pick up an iPhone XS for HK$9,899 (US$1,265). Its display lacks the vivid colors, contrast quality and resolution of the XS, but the price tag is nicer at $749.
