Nobody's lining up for the iPhone XS in China. Here's why

Get iPhone XS style battery life on your older iPhone with this easy step

Meanwhile, across the border in Hong Kong, the story is a different one.

The new charging dock is optimized for iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

Jim Morrison, Vice President of TechInsights, said in an interview that it appeared that one of Dialog Semiconductor's chips had been replaced in the iPhone XS Max by one of Apple's own chips, but it was not yet known whether that also applied to the iPhone XS.

Last year's iPhone X is on top, while the XS and XS Max are in gold below.

Next is the head height drop, which is meant to simulate the potential damage from dropping your iPhone XS, either accidentally or otherwise, while its held up against your ear during a phone conversation. Many consumers were seen lining up at the Orchard Road store in Singapore despite the hot weather.

Despite this, hundreds of people were lining up to enter Apple's flagship store on Regent Street by 8.30am.

"It's gold, what's not to love?" said another customer who.

Half an hour after the walk-in sales started at 10am, scalpers would only take 512GB iPhone XS Max phones at HK$300-500 higher than the original price, while some refused to take any more of the models with smaller storage. Moreover, person willing to purchase two phones was given a wristband which allowed him to leave the long queue and return within 30 minutes to retain his position. The iPhone X lasted about 9.5 hours in our own WiFi battery test, coming in well behind most other flagships a year ago. "Rather than using two cells to fill this L-shaped recess, Apple has constructed an all-new single-cell battery".

This year's demand isn't as extreme as the early years of the iPhone, or even last year with the iPhone X. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have faster processors, camera improvements, and the Max offers a bigger screen.

As a result, many mainland buyers, and in particular scalpers who had hoped to make quick money by "flipping" the devices, are reportedly in a panic, rushing to cancel their orders with Apple. Cao Zhongqiang from Shanghai was told he couldn't get any devices on the first day without an existing order.
