Apple iPhone XS vs. XS Max vs. XR

Apple iPhone XS vs. XS Max vs. XR

This is the sole reason for discontinuation of iPhone X. Like with the standard XS, the XS Max is also IP68 water-resistant, and supports Dual SIM Dual Standby as well as eSim technology.

Apple showcased its new products, starting from its redesigned Apple Watch Series 4 and its updated HomePod, but all the attention was focused on the three new iPhones. If you're hoping to get an XS or XS Max on launch day still but didn't pre-order, your best bet is likely visiting a store early - but launch day supplies can be limited.

Commenting on the size of the phone, The Verge calls the XS Max huge.

The XR's resolution of 1792 x 828 is also slightly lower than that on the XS and XS Max, at 2436 x 1125 and 2688 x 1242 pixels respectively, The Verge reports. At the end of communication with journalists, the senior official noted that "the role of the iPhone in people's lives has increased significantly", so the phone is now equipped with a much larger number of different components.

The iPhone XR has a larger display than the iPhone XS.

"Previous iPhone models required screen protectors with precise cutouts for the speaker and home button, which were excellent anchors for alignment", said Joe Jaconi, general manager and co-founder of Tech Armor. The front TrueDepth camera system is still 7MP, however, Apple says it's improved the facial recognition sensors, which means Face ID is a bit faster on the XS than on the X. It's slightly heavier than the XS but slightly lighter than the XS Max, and only includes a single 12-megapixel rear camera. Lastly, A12 bionic is the world's first 7nm based mobile processor that will reach masses. The XS feature Smart HDR pictures, which brings more highlight and shadow detail to your photos. Apart from that, the new neural engine helps in advanced, real-time machine learning. In other words, the A12 Bionic absolutely flies.


The iPhone Xs will come in 64GB, 256Gb and 512GB versions and will start at US$999.

And like a luxury auto, you can pay for an iPhone in smaller, less extreme monthly payments.

Today, Apple announced its latest premium smartphones, the iPhone Xs and Xs Max. The changes aren't that pronounced.

One of the most distinct difference are the available color options, with six colorways for the iPhone XR and just three standard color variants for the iPhone XS, but the two most significant differences between these two iPhones are the display and and body frame (or chassis).

In other Apple news, insider Johny Srouji sold 14,140 shares of the business's stock in a transaction dated Friday, August 17th.
