New iPhones getting great reviews

The new iPhones are getting great reviews, with even tech critics who had previously disdained ‘phablet’ devices saying they love the iPhone XS Max (cf: NYT). But you may want to hold back until October even though these are “fabulous phones” (WSJ): That’s when we’ll see what the iPhone XR offers. It could be the best value-for-money play in the three-phone lineup. Want to drill into the details? 9to5Mac and Macworld have roundups of reviews from all of the major outlets, from CNET to Tom’s Guide and the Verge and plenty more.

But when is it coming to Egypt? Apple’s Egyptian website doesn’t show a release date for the XS or XR as yet — it’s still plugging last year’s iPhone X, as are the sites of its local authorized resellers.
