The new iPhone XS and XS Max flaunt faster cellular modems than the iPhone X, and it shows in testing.

Kuo expects the new iPhones to be slightly more successful than last year's models, projecting 75-80 million shipped units until the end of 2018. Also, while we're on the subject of things that are missing from the packaging, there is no Lightning-to-3.5mm audio adapter, since no iPhone sold by the technology giant on its website features a mobile phone with a headphone jack.

Our own testing showed similar results using the Speedtest.net app: "downloads reached as high as 103 Mbps on the iPhone Xs and 96.9 Mbps on the iPhone Xs Max [.] By comparison, the older iPhone X averaged just 15.5 Mbps down and under 6 Mbps uploads". Available in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB versions, the Apple iPhone XS Max's price in India will be Rs 1,09,900, Rs 1,24,900 and Rs 1,44,900 respectively. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available in India starting September 28. Kuo expects the iPhone XR to grab 55-60% of the sales, once it gets to market in October.
