The XS and XS Max, which start from £999 and £1,099 respectively, have been available to pre-order for the past week but the XR - Apple's cheapest new smartphone, at £749 - will not hit shelves until late October. The awesome folks at iFixit have managed to obtain them as well and diligently pop up the devices to show the world what made these new phones tick.

Long story short: One iPhone XS Max survived being in a bowl of fresh water for 30 minutes with no visible damage. "I think Chinese people now are spoiled by multiple choices of mobiles phones".

Again, the Plus version has a larger screen and a second lens. Its 6.5-inch big sister, the iPhone XS Max, which launches on the same day, costs $100 more.

The XS Max battery unsurprisingly comes out on top capacity-wise, with 12.08 Wh (3,179 mAh at 3.80 V), and weighing 46.6 g.
