Which to buy: iPhone Xs vs iPhone Xs Max

Joss Rosignol MacRumors

The digital crown on the Apple watch series 4 has been upgraded to be more responsive and include new active feedback. The iPhone XS Max is a super sized iPhone XS at its core while the new iPhone XR is a more affordable iPhone XS style phone that replaces the aging iPhone 8 design language. Thanks to optimisations for Core ML, Apple's machine learning framework, it's now 9 times faster on the iPhone XS. Everything you can do on one you will be able to do [just as fast] on the other. Apple has made some compromises to drop the price, so will you still feel like you're getting enough for your money? The iPhone XR will be available for pre-order starting 19 October and hits stores on 26 October.

Apple today unveiled the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR, along with the Apple Watch Series 4.

The watch face can now be customized so you can add loved once to watch face and also track lives score.

Spotted Yinge added: '@AppleSupport idea for the iPhone XS: USB type C connector, ditch the Lightning.

The screen will be an edge-to-edge display, rounded in the corners. Meanwhile, the iPhone XS will cost the same as last year's iPhone X ($999). Instead, it features two speaker grilles on the corner and a charging port in the middle.

Presentation of the 2018 Apple will start at 20:00 Kyiv time. We've known since then that this year's iPhone lineup was going to be fantastic, so waiting for Apple to finally make the announcements seemed like it took forever. Now users can also manually adjust the level of depth on the bokeh from portrait mode which was missing from previous iPhones.

It's hard to put a price on how much a phone costs just by feel these days - largely because they're so much more expensive - but the "cheap" iPhone certainly doesn't feel that way and actually impresses quite profusely compared to the XS.

A 6.1-inch LCD display is used on this device - which Apple says is the "most advanced" LCD display ever.

While AirPods at least showed up on screen, AirPower wasn't mentioned at all.

Chinese telcos tease dual-SIM support on the upcoming iPhone
With that being said, even if Apple launches an iPhone with dual SIM slots, it will not be available in all the markets. China Telecom , on the other hand, is also state-owned and the third largest mobile network provider in China .

The Apple iPhone XS.

Apple's Phill Schiller said this phone has a 5.8-inch display and a stainless steel body with a better Retina OLED display.

So which should you get?

The new XS models come out September 21, while the XR is out October 26. It works rather nicely, considering it's "faked". Just below it, we can also see on what could possibly the LED flash. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have dual 12-megapixel cameras which have an f/1.8 aperture, optical stabilisation on both lenses and come with a bigger sensor which improve image quality across the board.

It's also got Smart HDR in the mix, allowing the iPhone XR to really capture the high-end elements of a photo, fusing the light and dark elements well in the demo pictures we saw. There will be zero shutter lag, and the camera will take many pictures to assess the lighting and motion blur in each to create a flawless composite image.

All three phones have the company's faster A12 Bionic processors and are water resistant.

Manufacturers hoping to create licenced cables will need to use meet the latest requirements from Apple, which stipulate the cable must be carry 18W of power to fast-charging iPhones - this is not the case with current-generation USB-A cables. The new phone is about the size of the existing iPhone 8 Plus, but with more screen.

However, the decision to make it larger is an odd one: this is a phone that perhaps is better suited to the Asian market (where bigger screens are more popular), which could be an issue for Western buyers.

The former flagship, as well as the iPhone SE and the iPhone 6s, have all been removed from Apple's website - discontinued.
