Apple announced new iPhones today, the two new flag high-end phones are called the iPhone XS (pronounced “ten S”) and the iPhone Xs Max. Here’s everything we learned today about the new hardware!
What’s the difference between the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max?
iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch OLED display and the iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch OLED display, meaning the iPhone Xs Max is larger; however, other than that, there is no difference between the two new phones on the inside.
Here are some main specs of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
The iPhone Xs and iPhone XS Max use the new A12 Bionic chip. Both phones have a 6-core CPU and a 4-core GPU, both of which are faster and more powerful than iPhone X from last year.
The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max both come with a dual camera system on the back that consists of an f1.8 12MP wide-angle lens and an f2.4 12MP telephoto lens. The cameras have new and upgraded sensors over the iPhone X last year and Apple claims it will produce pictures with greater detail and sharpness.
The new A12 Bionic chip has a new feature Apple calls SmartHDR, which is able to produce HDR photos in faster and with much better detail and exposure.
The Augmented Reality (AR)
The new GPU is much better at handling AR and has been tailored made for ARKit 2 meaning everything from games to animoji is going to look better and run more smoothly!
The Wireless Charging
The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will both have Qi wireless charging and Apple says it will charge slightly faster than the iPhone X!
The IP68 theoretically means the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max is “protected from long-term immersion up to a specified pressure by the manufacturer.” Apple hasn’t announced that pressure as of yet.
When will it be available?
Both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be available to order on September 14 and will ship on September 21!
