Will you be queueing up for the new iPhone? The devices are set to go on sale in various parts of the world starting today, and we already have got a complete teardown of the new iPhone XS, done by a Dutch website FixjeiPhone.

The new iPhones have subtle additions to last year's reimagined iPhone X, the tenth anniversary phone, and do not look very different aside from the ginormous size, several reviewers said. The one actually big change in this year's iPhone crop is the XS Max. The two iPhone XS and XS Max variants are available in Gold, Space Grey and Silver colour options. The iPhone XR only has a 828p display, with a resolution of 1792×828.

Prices for the cheaper iPhone XR, expected in South Africa on October 26, have not yet been released.

"I'll never let it (his iPhone) go", he said. He added that he had already placed a pre-order for two iPhone XS Max line but he chose to queue up to get more units to make a profit.
