Apple has, after several rumours and a few last-minute leaks, unveiled its iPhones for 2018. which means you’ve got 3 upgrade choices this year: iPhone XS, iPhone XS max and iPhone XR.
Here we’ll talk about the first 2, and you’ll realize everything you wish to know about the cheaper iPhone XR here.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, Apple has designed upon the iPhone X instead of change the iPhone eight. thus new and previous models look a similar at a look.
You can think about the XS the direct upgrade from the X, however the XS max adds a latest option with the biggest screen yet seen on an iPhone at 6.5 inches.
Yes, you read that right: not XS plus, but XS Max. We’re into the second decade of iPhone currently, thus it’s affordable that Apple desires to change its naming strategy. It says it’s because the screen is larger than the 5.5 inch display on an iPhone plus, however it is also because it’s extending its vision of what the iPhone X started. Jonny Ive’s words, those, not ours. most of the people are doubtless to pronounce it “excess” instead of “ten ess”, however the latter is the correct approach after all.
Here are highlights of the new features:
• A12 Bionic processor
• IP68 rated
• Updated 12Mp cameras
• Adjustable depth of field in photos

iPhone release date 2018: When are the new iPhones coming out?
The new phones, both XS and XS Max will be available to pre-order from 14 September, and the first will ship on 21 September.
As this can be an ‘S’ model, no-one are stunned that the look is the same as the iPhone X. which means your existing cases will fit: buttons and ports are in the same places.
It’s made from a similar surgical-grade stainless steel, however the screen and rear glass has a new formulation of glass that Apple says is the toughest ever used in a phone.
Water-resistance has been improved to IP68, up from IP67, so you can leave it submerged at a depth of 2m for 30 minutes. And it won’t just survive fresh water, Apple has also tested it in orange juice, tea, wine, beer and salt water.
iPhone XS: 143.6×70.9×7.7mm, 177g
iPhone XS Max: 157.5×77.4×7.7mm, 208g
The XS’ screen is a minor upgrade to the iPhone X’s. Resolution remains the same, as does the 5.8-inch diagonal, but contrast is improved to 1,000,000:1, which Apple says gives is a 60 percent greater dynamic range.
The iPhone XS Max is just.. bigger. It shares the same design but has a 6.5-inch screen in a body that’s roughly the same size as the iPhone 8 Plus. That’s a whole inch more, a real boon for those who can live with physically larger phone as this is now one of the biggest screens on any phone.
