A first impression

iPhone Xs

iPhone Xs

The Apple iPhone Xs has the smartest and most powerful chip any iPhone has ever had: the A12 Bionic chip. No matter what you're doing, it's even faster than you were used to. The glass is also stronger than ever. The iPhone Xs comes in a gold edition as well. Thanks to the glass back, you can charge the iPhone Xs wirelessly. Just like the iPhone X, you can use your face as a password via Face ID, only it work faster for the Xs. You can take great pictures as well, thanks to the dual camera system. Photos are more detailed in the light and shadows. Even when there's not a lot of light, your photos won't be as grainy. You may have gotten used to the portrait mode, but the iPhone Xs has a new depth division. You can now adjust the depth of field in your portraits manually.

iPhone Xs Max

iPhone Xs Max

As we said, the Apple iPhone Xs has the smartest and most powerful chip any iPhone has ever had: the A12 Bionic chip. The iPhone Xs Max also has the biggest screen any iPhone has ever had at 6.5 inches. The iPhone Xs Max has a larger display than the iPhone 8 Plus, but the size of the device is the same. Don't worry, you can still hold it with 1 hand. Watching movies and series works even better on this new device, especially thanks to the new Super Retina HD display, which is even clearer. Another new feature of the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max? The 512GB models have even more space for all your photos, music, and files than before.

iPhone Xr

iPhone Xr

The iPhone Xr has the new Liquid Retina display. What does that mean? This is the most advanced LCD display currently on the market. You'll always see lifelike colors, no matter the angle. The iPhone Xr has a 6.1-inch display. The display is bigger than the iPhone 8, which has a display of 5.5 inches. The iPhone Xr is smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus, though. That means you get more screen, but less size. It's a win win. Like the iPhone Xs, the iPhone Xr is made of the strongest glass any smartphone has had. Because of that, you can charge your iPhone Xr wirelessy. The most significant thing about the iPhone Xr are the 6 new colors: red, yellow, white, coral, black, and blue.
