The new iPhone Xs, with improved battery life, and water resistance, will cost R22,000 for the 64GB version, R25,000 for the 256GB version, and R30,000 for the 512GB version. 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.

The new Apple iPhone Xs will start from R22,000 in South Africa - and the iPhone Xs Max will set you back R24,000.

iPhone XR will not have 3D touch but it does get 120Hz touch responsiveness, True-Tone and tap-to-wake on an LCD.


In a statement released by the company on Thursday, Deliveroo said: "Following last year's release which saw the iPhone X almost sell-out across Ireland at pre-order, Deliveroo is ensuring that those who decide to queue and buy in store won't go hungry".

Along with this big display, Apple has tucked the new A12 Bionic processor under the glass and metal body.

The iPhone XR offers an all-screen design that looks very similar to the flagship XS. The company has announced that it will introduce a new device on September 27.


Will you be queueing up for the new iPhone?

Here are five reasons to hold off before buying the iPhone XS and what to get instead.

Coming to the iPhone XR, this is where we have a big problem, one which nobody seems to be talking about. Maybe we'll see an iPhone X-style redesign at some point (I think it would have to be called iPhone XSE - a.k.a. "iPhone Tennessee" - as it most certainly could not be called iPhone SEX). India is fourth from the bottom in terms of affordability of the new Apple iPhone XS. Apple's iPhone XS series is now up for pre-orders in India, and it will go on sale on from September 28. The iPhone XS retails for Rs 99,900 (64GB), Rs 1,14,900 (256GB) and Rs 1,34,900 (512GB), while the iPhone XS Max retails for Rs 1,09,900 (64GB), Rs 1,24,900 (256GB) and Rs 1,44,900 (512GB).

Popular tech YouTuber Marques Brownlee (aka MKBHD) posted a video revealing the unboxing and the contents of the iPhone Xs Max.
