  • The iPhone 8 represents good value when compared with Apple’s new iPhone Xs

Hundreds of die-hards queued up at the UAE's three Apple Stores last night at The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates in Dubai, and Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi - eager to be among the first to get hold of the tech giant's latest devices.

iPhone fans began lining up outside the Apple Store at Westfield Century City at 2 p.m. Thursday in anticipation of the phone's debut Friday.

Elsewhere, as you'd expect, the XS and XS Max share a lot of engineering and design traits with the iPhone X. However, there are a couple important improvements, most notably in the antenna and camera departments. Another woman in the same line, Eli Di Lauro, who lives in the United Kingdom capital, said the larger size of the XS Max model was the biggest appeal for an upgrade. Elsewhere, there were much shorter queues with sales limited those that had placed online orders. The two iPhone XS and XS Max variants are available in Gold, Space Grey and Silver colour options. In India, an average earner can well forget about buying the new iPhone. All this lets you save $800 on your new Apple smartphone, although savings aren't instant, instead being offered as bill credit over 30 months. The iPhone XR Max does not look very different from the older ones.

Prices for the larger iPhone Xs Max, with a 16.5cm screen, start at R24,000 for the 64GB version, R27,000 for the 256GB version, and top out at a whopping R32,000 for the 512GB version.

"I bought the iPhone X a year ago, but I took it back the next day and stuck with my iPhone 7 Plus", she said.

Massive 1,000ft spider web appeared overnight in Greece
In what must be an arachnophobe's worst nightmare, video has emerged showing a Greek beach covered in huge spider webs. Fortunately, the spiders shouldn't cause any permanent damage to the area's plants.

The lukewarm response to the new iPhones, with most models surpassing the 10,000 yuan mark (US$1,463), could indicate that not even the most popular must-have gadgets among affluent Chinese consumers are immune to the effects of the Sino-American trade spat.

"It cost me more than $1,700", Quan Vu says smiling as he caresses his new iPhone XS Max.

Apple also introduced iPhone XR.

Selfies also get this threatment with Portrait mode on the front-facing TrueDepth camera. "When you're used to the bigger size it's hard to go back to a smaller one".

Those seriously concerned about the durability of the new iPhones should wait for additional durability tests to hit the web before making any conclusions.
