The excitement is so much that the Apple fans in Singapore stood in a queue in front of the Apple Store ahead of the latest iPhones launch. "Rather than using two cells to fill this L-shaped recess, Apple has constructed an all-new single-cell battery". The new iPhone models price in India starts at Rs. 99,900, and the cheaper iPhone XR model will go on sale in October.

Apple in a required filing with China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has revealed the amount of RAM and the battery capacity of each of its new iPhones - information the Cupertino-based company doesn't readily advertise. Even that was a huge shift, especially since developers had to re-size all their apps, and the iPhone 5S and 5C the following year kept that same 4-inch screen.

Last week, amid the hoopla surrounding the new iPhones, Apple quietly killed off one of the best smartphones it's ever made: the iPhone SE. Moreover, the customers in United States have started receiving notifications regarding the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which is slated to arrive by September 21.

Unveiled at the IFA 2018 conference last month, Motorola One Power is one of the first phones with notch display from Motorola.
