Die-hard iPhone fans lined up in the rain at the Apple store on Ste.

People around the world are lining up to get their hands on Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max, but some couldn't wait to pull it apart (carefully) and check out what's going on underneath.

The excitement over the debut of the new iPhone XS and XS Max, which went on sale at Apple stores on Friday, was short lived for a group of tourists from Chile in South Beach.

Most customers ordering the new iPhone did so online, but there are reports that shipments were being delayed to Monday.

Doors opened at 8 am with shoppers excited for their latest iPhones. That was reflected in the poll as 30% of those planning to upgrade said that they will buy the iPhone XR (64GB for $749, 128GB for $799, 256GB for $899).

iPhone XS and XS Max are the first Apple phones to support dual-SIM functionality. "Like for example in Singapore there were hundreds of people waiting, but here there aren't many".

Apple paraded out its new iPhone models on Friday. It is said to last longer than iPhone X, but is still weaker than Galaxy Note 9's 4,000mAh battery.

As you can see, results of the head height drop were a bit different, with the original iPhone X suffering a small but noticeable crack in its front-facing display, and the iPhone XS remaining blemish free. There's also an adapter included in the box, which is a good touch - too many charging stations rely on you supplying your own charging brick. New orders of numerous new watch models won't arrive until the end of October in the USA, while orders from China are seeing a three to four week wait time.

Reliance Jio will be offering both prepaid and postpaid connections for iPhone XS and XS Max. But none of the enhancements are significant unless a user upgrading a much older iPhone.

"The scalpers here offer HK$100 lower [than the original of price of HK$10,799, US$1,382]". And if you want a supersized display, that's where the $1,100 iPhone XS Max comes in. Cao Zhongqiang from Shanghai was told he couldn't get any devices on the first day without an existing order.
