iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max – Apple’s new and expected smartphones
Apple introduced today, September 12, the two successors of the iPhone X. The devices are called iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max and bring a number of small improvements over the original model. According to the brand itself, it is the most advanced smartphone ever launched by the manufacturer.
One more important news is the adoption of the brand new Apple A12 Bionic chip, with considerably better performance than the previous generation chip. The 7nm processor has 6.9 billion transistors with 6 CPU colors (15% faster than the previous generation) and 4 GPU colors (which is 50% faster than the old one), not counting the network engine neural.

There is dedicated Octa-Core processing of machine learning that analyzes high amounts of data and an intelligent system of energy consumption. It is capable of processing 5 trillion operations per second, according to Apple, and should be widely used in games, Augmented Reality, and monitoring of sports activities.
As for the cameras, the rear set is dual: a 12 MP wide and f1.8 lens and a 12 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. Both feature TrueTone flash and optical image stabilizer. On the front, TrueDepth has a 7 MP that works together with the infrared camera to bring depth to selfies.
The Bionic A12 chip is well integrated with the cameras and helps you “read” the environment and choose the best setting possible.
A new feature is Smart HDR, which captures critical moments the moment you press the shutter button with “interframes” in different exposures so you have a greater detail of brightness, shadow, texture. So, this feature puts everything together in a photo that should be considered the perfect one of that click.
In addition, the camera aperture can be changed after the photo has been taken. You can slide your finger across the screen to blur the background or make it appear. This is possible thanks to this amount of captured frames and the fast processing of the Bionic A12.
The devices are pretty much identical to last year’s model, with the difference in screen size. It features a stainless steel body with a durable glass finish on the front and back which is one of the most durable on the market.
Both models come with a Super Retina OLED display. The edges are the smallest possible and HDR10 and Dolby Vision are supported for multimedia content consumption. As for the screen size, it is 6.1 inches for the iPhone Xs and 6.5 inches for the iPhone Xs Max
And the notch is there. But Apple guarantees that you will have the best that this feature has to offer, with a number of features inserted in the top front of the handset. This includes the infrared camera, the proximity sensor, a speaker, a microphone, the front camera, an ambient light sensor, and even more components.
The iPhone Xs battery gives 30 more minutes of battery life than the iPhone X. The Xs Max brings 1 hour and 30 minutes more power compared to last year’s generation. They even bring the long-awaited dual-SIM feature, the ability to use two chips in one device – old order from multiple consumers.
In terms of security, faster algorithms that unlock the device faster and display your notifications almost instantaneously. Face unlocking via Face ID is also smarter and Bluetooth 5.0 is already supported.
DSDS (Dual SIM Dual Standby) makes a line always the primary line of the device when you receive a call, while the eSIM makes the second chip electronic, and installing a second line has no complications.
The pre-sale starts on September 14 and the shipping begins on September 21. The iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max will cost $ 999 and $ 1,099 respectively, in their most basic versions. The color options will be Space Gray, Silver, and Gold.
