    First iPhone XS teardown gives away a smaller battery capacity than the X

    25 days ago - By Phone Arena

    Ladies and gentlemen, the first teardown of the new 2018 Apple crop is here, and it is of the 5.8" iPhone XS. Is it the same inside as the iPhone X, does it sport the same battery capacity, did it blend? All pressing questions which the video above answers with aplomb.
    To that middle question - the L-shaped battery is a tad different than the 2716mAh capacity unit that is installed in the iPhone X. The repair guy that did the video and the label on the pack itself say 2658mAh, referring to the actual capacity. This is slightly smaller than on the X, even ...

    Some old iPhone X cases may not fit the iPhone XS, after all

    25 days ago - By Phone Arena

    The new iPhone XS has absolutely the same dimensions as the outgoing iPhone X and third-party case makers are listing their X cases as compatible with the XS. Apple, however, doesn't and has removed most mentions of the X from its accessory website.
    One of the reasons Apple doesn't want you to browse the X-files anymore is because its first notch-ed phone is being phased out and completely replaced by the XS, even going by the same price tag.
    The other could be that the XS camera bump turned out to be slightly larger than ...
