But of course, now that Apple's newest iPhones - the iPhone XS and XS Max - have had time spread across the internet, developers are beginning to uncover secrets about the smartphones, specifically in the battery department. And you know what that means; stores in the country have already started selling the Apple iPhone XS and Apple iPhone XS Max. This factor combined with the slightly larger battery in the XS Max is also likely the cause of the added 90 minutes of usage over last year's X. For comparison's sake, last year's biggest iPhone - the iPhone 8 Plus - had a 2,691mAh battery. The iPhone XS has a 2,658 mAh battery, which is smaller than the 2,716 mAh battery in the iPhone X. Even still, Apple says the phone will offer slightly better battery life than last year's iPhone X.

That's because all three phones pack more efficient components, like the 7nm A12 Bionic chip.

Liverpool hit 57-year high with dramatic slaying of PSG
After being sent on loan to West Bromwich Albion last season, the injury-prone England forward's Liverpool career looked over. Up next, however, is a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool; a trip they will have to make without Ings.

Apple event: Product launch starts with Apple Watch Series 4
The back of the Series 4 will be made with black ceramic and sapphire, which will apparently allow radio waves to pass through it. The news comes on top of nuts-and-bolts announcements about a larger screen, improved user interface and a new operating system.

Hurricane heads for Carolinas; will it hit mid-Hudson?
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles. Further, residents and tourists should expect heavy prolonged rain upon the storm's arrival.

And for those that still want a real iPhone, Apple still sells its iPhone 8 and 7 models at more affordable prices, and they run all the latest apps, can do AR, work with Apple Watches, HomePods and more. However, even after a full year, the hardware has not hit the market and Apple apparently wants to get rid of the mention of it for good.The company has removed nearly all references to AirPower from its official website, Cnet reported. And there's no denying the company's really good at doing it. The iPhone Xs 256GB version is available for R785 per month, and the Xs 256GB R849. But it's still interesting to know the finer details since Apple won't tell us directly. Wall Street analysts believe that the 6.1-inch iPhone XR will end up outselling the other two models because of its lower price, followed by the larger (and much more expensive) iPhone XS Max.

More importantly, apart from comparing the iPhone's ageing charger with its competition, it's also a question of getting a complete experience when you get a luxury item like the new iPhone XS. In this case, I'd expect a fast charger to make use of the iPhone's fast-charging support, not the minimum required spec.
