IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression

IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression

In addition to today's launch of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, Apple also debuted an expected lower-cost LCD version. How is it better? Or would the late Apple co-founder have conceded to change and increased the size of the iPhone display?

Single rear camera lens instead of two: This is a big one.

Therefore, if you were in love with the smaller 4-inch compact form factor or don't want to part with the headphone jack on an iPhone, you can try your luck with the SE and 6S till stocks last. It also features IP68 certification which makes it water-resistant - beer and tea as well - in 2m depth for up to 30 minutes. Apple gave us cryptic guidance like "it lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus". It was not until two years' later that the company diversified the line. With the iPhone Xs though, Apple is taking things to a different level altogether. Coming to the additional details, the A12 processor will sport a 6-core design clocked in at 2.49GHz while the A11 Bionic sports a 2.39GHz CPU for the performance cores. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, will sell at Rs 69,900 for the 64GB variant and Rs ₹84,900 for the 256GB variant.

Also, HDR has been removed, and upgraded to being a more "Smart HDR". This means that one can control the depth effect in photos after capturing the photos on the iPhone Xs Max.

So, while the company has been offering a $29 deal on everything from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone X for months, it's now moving those to $49. As for the iPhone11,6 identifier, this appears to be the iPhone Xs thanks to the 4GB of RAM detailed in the specifications list. Although there's only one 12-megapixel camera on the XR's glass backing, some software work with iOS 12 means you don't sacrifice portrait mode shots.

The lack of Touch ID on the iPhone Xs Max will definitely bug a lot of people.

The clarification came hours after Jaitley said that he had not granted any formal appointment to Mallya. Vijay Mallya arrives at Westminster Magistrates Court in London , Britain, September 12, 2018.

On the battery front, Apple's not going with specific numbers, but with the iPhone XS, you should expect a battery life of around 30 minutes more than the iPhone X, or 90 minutes more with the iPhone XS Max over the iPhone X.

The decision is likely to alienate some holdouts who still use the old school wired headphones offered by Apple over the years and haven't yet embraced the lightning cable.

The iPhone XS is $999 for 64 GB, $1,149 for 256 GB, and $1,349 for 512 GB.

Now the only way to get a less expensive iPhone is to wait for newly announced devices to get old.

What do you think about the iPhone 8 Plus when compared to the iPhone Xs Max?
