New iPhones are bigger in size and price tag

While it's Apple's nature to hide details (like sales figures) pertinent to its major product launches, savvy and well-connected analysts in the Far East have historically been able to offer reasonable estimates of how the company's new products are performing, even shortly after launch.

The iPhone was not among the "wide range" of products that Apple told regulators would be hit by the $200 billion round of tariffs in a September 5 comment letter to trade officials. Though Apple is calling it the largest phone it has ever made, keep the iPhone XS Max alongside an iPhone 8 Plus and you realise it is not exactly the largest Apple phone, just the largest screen on an Apple phone.

When the iPhone X was launched in India previous year, it became the first iPhone in the country to breach the Rs 1 lakh mark and raised eyebrows from all corners. Both of his iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xs are in the gold variant and sport an internal storage capacity of 512GB, which only means both iPhone models are very expensive, with the iPhone Xs Max going as high as for $1,449 in the US for the highest storage version.

The radical changes came with the iPhone X past year.

Kavanaugh accuser wants Federal Bureau of Investigation probe before she will testify

The newer iPhone XS Max does have a lot more screen to power though considering it's a 6.5-inch display, but it also has the newer A12 Bionic working on its side.

The iPhone XS Max should also recharge faster than the iPhone X, although the handset features a bigger battery, so going from 0% to 100% might take longer - actual battery charging tests aren't available yet.

Finally, according to Kuo, the Apple Watch Series 4 has been in higher demand than previously expected.
