iPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression

Apple debuts 6.1-inch LCD iPhone XR, coming in October

The new iPhone XS Max features Apple's largest phone screen ever at 6.5-inches, yet it might not be enough to future-proof the handset.

So perhaps don't rush into the new iPhones right away.

Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 4 on Wednesday during a special product announcement event which included the highly anticipated iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the entry-level iPhone XR.

Three new iPhones are heading our way: the XS, XS Max, and the XR.

Despite the positive reaction to the new iPhones, Goldman Sachs slashed its earnings forecast for Apple. But that may not be negative considering lots of new smartphones and Android ones have embraced the cutout display. Explaining its latest offerings, Apple said that these improvements allow the new devices to enthral its users with slicker camera effects and augmented reality experiences.

The radical change in design is the removal of TouchID, the fingerprint technology pioneered by Apple itself.

Apple iPhone X came out with a completely overhauled design featuring a huge notch display. Because Apple's new iOS 12 software will be released to the public early next week, and it's going to make your phone feel brand new.

But now Apple thinks its about time people move on.

"We know that the advanced custom OLED screen on the iPhone X was extremely expensive". Both the devices also support 3D Touch, Dolby Vision, and HDR10 playback. That's three new options for consumers on top of Apple's previous iPhone models that are still being offered, and unless you've been paying attention to the various rumors surrounding the three devices ahead of their launch, the amount of new information to take in could be overwhelming. Based on 7nm process, Apple A12 processor promises better CPU performance. And yet, over the past few years Apple got everybody so used to these kind of price hikes that they nearly feel normal now. Up front there's a 7-megapixel RGB camera with f/2.2 aperture. This means the iTunes app store will come with new experiences on getting things done, socializing and creating art. Machine learning algorithms will potentially assist apps to understand and respond to happenings in photos and videos. Apple also finally fixed the messy notifications with the new iOS 12 by introducing grouped notifications. The new iPhone XS has nothing like that.

But in France, for example, over just the basic version of the iPhone XS is Max with 64 GB of internal flash memory. Apple iPhone XR features a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display with 326 ppi. It comes with Face ID and A12 Bionic like the iPhone XS series.

This week Apple announced the latest incarnations of its iPhone: the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR.
