Today, September 12, Apple officially introduced the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.
Despite the fact that the news made a lot of noise long before the official presentation, it did not make the release less interesting, but only provoked the fans of the company.
Externally, the iPhone XS and XS Max are identical to the original iPhone X, presented a year earlier. Smartphone housings are a familiar sandwich consisting of glass panels in front and behind and a metal frame in the middle, which serves as the basis for internal components.
Glass, which is used in the production of the new iPhone, is the most durable one that smartphones have ever been equipped with. To the two colors of the body, silvery and space gray, gold was added. To say that it looks stylish and expensive is like to say nothing, it’s so beautiful.
Hardware stuffing, as well as the appearance of smartphones was predictable. In the role of “heart” of new products is the processor of Apple’s own design, which received the expected name A12 Boinic. This is the first chipset in the world, built on a 7-nm process technology. It is 15% faster and 50% more energy efficient than A11 Bionic.
Smartphone security provides a Face ID interface, which in the iPhone XS and XS Max has become even faster and more reliable thanks to advanced Secure Enclave technology.
If the iPhone 5.8 inches display is already used to us and now we are less and less admired by its color and convenience, the 6.5-inch OLED panel of the iPhone XS Max will make us experience these feelings again. The underlying OLED panel provides 60% more color coverage than the iPhone X.
The display of the iPhone XS Max is so big that it is able to replace even the iPad, offering a flatbed display model of the interface. Thanks to this, it will become even more convenient to interact with a smartphone in a horizontal orientation than before.
iPhone XS and XS Max for the first time in the history of the iPhone line got stereo speakers placed on the lower and upper edges. With them, music will find new shades, amazing with its quality and volume even without headphones.
Like the iPhone X, the novelties have two main cameras. The paired module retained the resolution of its predecessor, but it got support for advanced post-processing algorithms, ensuring the highest quality of images regardless of ambient lighting conditions.
The iPhone XS and XS Max got a “smart” mode for HDR shooting. It makes photography more natural, creating the effect of professional shooting with the use of studio equipment. In addition, the ability to manually adjust the aperture already on the finished image has been added.
iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max became the first smartphones of the company for many years, capable of boasting longer battery life. According to Phil Schiller, iPhone XS will work half an hour longer than the iPhone X, and the iPhone XS Max–for an hour and a half!
Dual SIM cards
Both smartphones support two SIM-cards. One of them is physical, while the second is built-in and works only in a limited number of countries where eSIM is allowed. In this case, specifically for China, where the standard eSIM outlawed, will be released version of the iPhone XS with two physical cards.
Prices and start date of sales
Official sales of the iPhone XS and XS Max will begin on September 21. At the same time, pre-order will be available this Friday. The devices will be retailed at a price of $999 for the low-end version with a memory capacity of 64 GB. 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max drive of similar volume will cost you $1099.
