On September 12, Apple announced the release of not one, but three new iPhones! These three new models, available in the market soon, are the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. The 2018 models will officially replace the iPhone X. Apple decided to pull the original X model from the market following the announcement of the three latest models.
If you are looking to upgrade your phone this year, you should consider all of these three new models, paying special attention to what makes them unique. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are relatively the same. These two models only differ in terms of size, so you can choose according to preference. As for the iPhone XR, it is ideal if you are seeking a more budget-friendly option without compromising on the features you enjoy. The XR is undoubtedly Apple’s own version of the “bargain” phone.
Are you interested to learn more about what each of these phone models can offer? Below we provide some information about technical specifications, price, and more.
The iPhone XS is the primary model that is being offered in this new range of iPhones. Its biggest selling point is clearly the large display screen. The iPhone XS features a 5.8-inch Super Retina custom OLED display with a resolution of 2436 x 1125. The screen also features 458 pixels per inch, providing you with clear and crisp images.
The all-screen design of the iPhone XS also gives you a large canvas to do whatever you want – watch movies, play games, etc. In addition, the custom-built OLED display promises the most color-accurate and remarkably bright display yet. It is considered to have the sharpest display out of any Apple device so far.
The quality of the images captured from the previous iPhone models has been one of the reasons why customers loved them. Apple claims that you can expect better from the iPhone XS, particularly with the integration of true tone technology. This means that the camera is equipped with a six-channel light sensor that automatically adjusts according to the amount of light around you. This is how you can ensure that the images appear as natural on your phone as possible!

As mentioned above, the iPhone XS Max will have relatively the same set of features and capabilities as the iPhone XS. The only difference between these two is the display and screen size.
