Developer Gavin Stephens and Australian-American Scott Obara shared on Twitter images of the AirPower reference from iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max manuals, leading many to speculate the product is still alive and kicking.

For the full teardown, hop on over to iFixit's post on both the XS and XS Max to see what the internals of these phones look like for yourself.

We will soon start our iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max review coverage. The iPhone XR 64GB is priced at Rs. 76,900, the 128GB variant is priced at Rs. 81,900, and the 512GB variant is priced at Rs. 91,900.

Likewise, Jack Lim, 28, said that he felt "honoured" to be one of the first few customers in Singapore to pick up Apple's latest iPhone.

"I've been using the iPhone for 10 years now", he told Khaleej Times.

He had said that the trip would happen this year and would not involve a landing, but rather a long loop around the moon. "I thought, what if Basquiat had gone to space and had seen the moon up close or saw the earth in full view?" he said.

Another significant revelation worth noting is that all three of Apple's 2018 iPhone models sport additional RAM memory in comparison to their direct predecessors.

The original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S all had screens that measured 3.5 inches. A buyer would have to shell out Rs 76,900 for the cheapest model of the new phones, the 64 GB iPhone XR in India, while the iPhone XS would cost Rs 1,34,900. While the host doesn't really speak to how easy or hard it'll be to carry out DIY repairs on the new iPhone, the video certainly suggests that performing your own repairs won't exactly be a walk in the park.

"I'll never let it (his iPhone) go", he said. But the version of the SE that came out in 2017 is still as speedy as an iPhone 6S and runs Apple's latest iOS 12.

Having so many different iPhone models gave Apple a big advantage: While most smartphone makers could only afford to focus on one phone launch at a time, Apple was selling phones for just about everyone, whether you wanted something affordable or high-end, big or small. It has a 6.4-inch screen, a stylus, an iris reader, and even the ability to plug in a keyboard, mouse and desktop-sized monitor.

At $350, the iPhone SE was one of the best "budget" smartphones you can buy. Brand new. You'll get Face ID, dual back cameras, portrait mode and fun dancing-poop Animojis. And you'll be $200 richer.
