Apple fans in Singapore waiting in line for the launch of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max had a pleasant surprise on Thursday night (20 September) after they received free powerbanks from one of Apple's competitors, Huawei.

The couple purchased 18 XS Max models at a Lincoln Road Apple Store and tucked them into the trunk of their rental auto before driving to a nearby Starbucks.

And those of you who are wondering, Huawei's SuperCharge power banks don't come cheap. 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.

TechInsights' dissection of a 256-gigabyte storage capacity iPhone Xs Max, on the other hand, revealed DRAM from Micron but NAND memory from SanDisk, which is owned by Western Digital Corp and works with Toshiba for its supply of NAND chips.

Reliance Jio will be offering both prepaid and postpaid connections for iPhone XS and XS Max.

While it is already available on the iPhone 6S and later devices like the iPhone 7, iPhone 7S, the iPhone 8, and iPhone XS, iOS 12 will now make it available across iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices regardless of their screen capability. It's not uncommon for new phone owners to put their prized possessions directly into a protective case or at the very least, handle them like delicate flowers. Comparably, South Korean giant Samsung's Galaxy S9 comes with a 3,000mAh battery. "You'll need it. Courtesy of Huawei".

Maezawa said: "Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the Moon...this is my lifelong dream". The excited future space traveler exclaimed at the event, "I choose to go to the moon".

Think twice before starting to take daily aspirin
Previous studies found aspirin may be protective against certain kinds of cancer. Half of those people used daily aspirin and the others did not.

While they're perhaps a touch dormant on new release devices, Huawei are far from inactive in the marketing space.

Interestingly, Apple has also reduced battery capacity this time with the iPhone XS, but hasn't compromised on the performance.

Qualcomm said in July that Apple meant to exclusively use "competitor's modems" in its next iPhone release.

Pricier and bigger new iPhone models made their market debut in Japan on Friday, with the country's three leading mobile carriers starting sales of the XS Max and the XS that have faster processors and feature better battery life and improved camera functions.

Look for our review of the iPhone X and XS Max in the later part of next week. It's a big reason why Apple can justify the higher price tags.
