Huawei Trolls Apple by Giving Out 200 Free Power Banks to Fans Camping Outside Store

Mothership.sg report that while the iPhone fans were observing their annual ritual of queuing up to get their hands on the fabled devices, Huawei staff took the opportunity to not-so-subtly have a go at the battery life of iPhones by handing out powerbanks to the waiting crowds.

Rectangular or cylindrical batteries are pretty common, but the iPhone XS' one-cell L-shaped battery is something else.

TechSmartt dropped the iPhone X (last year's model), the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max from an unofficial pocket height, head height and around 10 feet onto a tennis court. I don't want to spoil the verdict too early, so check back soon to Gizmodo for our full reviews on both the iPhone XS and the XS Max. We'll continue along with the scratch test, Scratching the screen of Apples new iPhone XS Max; the biggest screen on an iPhone ever.

In my brief time with the iPhone XS Max this morning, it's clear to me I once again need to get used to triggering Reachability and start using it more often.

That phone was Apple's first to come with water resistance and its first to lose the standard headphone jack.

Pakistan court orders release of ex-PM Nawaz Sharif, daughter
A two member bench, led by Minallah, suspended the jail sentences while hearing the Sharifs' appeal against their convictions. Former Punjab CM and PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif had reached Adiala jail to take his brother and party supremo with him.

Granted, the improvements Apple has made - like fixes for the microphone and battery issues - along with the bells and whistles it's added over the years, make keeping up with the Joneses alluring.

Today, the Apple Watch Series 4 has officially gone on sale in many parts of the world alongside the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Li Yiqiang, who bought a gold Hong Kong-version of the 64GB iPhone XR Max at the price of 9,800 yuan (HK$11,220) in Huaqiangbei, said: "If I place an order in the Apple Store, I have to wait for 10 days to get one". To pre-order one of the variants of the iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max from Flipkart, head here.

In India, Jio and Airtel came up with eSIM activation plans for Apple Watch Series 3 a year ago. In the USA, the iPhone XS Max with 512 gigabytes of storage costs US$1,449.

The XS Max battery unsurprisingly comes out on top capacity-wise, with 12.08 Wh (3,179 mAh at 3.80 V), and weighing 46.6 g. New orders of numerous new watch models won't arrive until the end of October in the US, while orders from China are seeing a three to four week wait time.
