The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max go on sale tomorrow morning, and — as has become tradition — fans are already lining up.

One report published today claims that, by noon local time on Thursday, around 250 people had already lined up outside an Apple Store in Singapore. The person at the front of the line had flown from Vietnam the previous day, and had started queuing at 6 a.m. Thursday.

There are some things Apple never tells us about its iOS devices, so we have to wait until they go on sale and find out more for ourselves. But thanks to one regulator, we now know some important details about the new iPhone lineup.

Here are the battery sizes and RAM capacities of iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR.

iPhone XR demand may have taken Apple by surprise

Apple clearly had some sense that its 6.1-inch LCD iPhone XR would be big, since it gave it the main event spot in last week’s Apple media event.

But it may have been surprised by just how big it is, since a new report suggests that Apple is revising the ratio of its total iPhone orders for December — so that the iPhone XR makes up more than 50 percent of its handsets manufactured.

iPhone XS camera design proves even more impressive than we thought

The new camera sensors on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max could be worth a $1000 upgrade all their own.

Early reviews of the new cameras are overwhelmingly positive. Even though we already knew Apple made the pixels larger and the sensor bigger, we now have a better idea of the crazy engineering that went into making it the best iPhone camera ever.

Dead batteries won’t kill NFC on iPhone XS and XR

It’s irritating when your iPhone runs out of battery. But it can actually be life threatening if you depend on your phone’s NFC feature to get into your dorm room or onto a train. 

That’s why the iPhone XS and the other 2018 models still offer some NFC transactions even when down to the power reserve.
