Apple just launched the new iPhone XS on Wednesday September 12 ,2018. The Cupertino based company just announced the successors of the iPhone X - The iPhone XS with a 5.8 inches display and iPhone XS Max with 6.5 inches.(P.S- It's pronounced iPhone ten S)


According to Apple CEO, Tim Cook "The iPhone X has changed the industry" and became the “number one smartphone in the world, Today, we’re going to take iPhone X to the next level. I’m excited to show you what is by far the most advanced iPhone we have ever created.

Despite the fact that I am a huge Android Fan, I'm pretty curious to know what Apple has in store for us as many Android OEM's took a cue from the iPhone X last year by ripping off the notch and Google has added gestures similar to the the one on iOS 11 to Android Pie 9.0.


Design and Build Of The iPhone XS & iPhone XS MAX

The iPhone XS sports a gold finish (as well as silver and space grey), making it according to Apple “the most beautiful iPhone They’ve ever made”, and is covered with a new glass that is the “most durable ever”. It's an impressive move from Apple but it doesn't change the fact that iPhones are still fragile



The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max more waterproof, and can stay 2m under water for ten minutes.

However most of these specs are the same thing we have on the iPhone X . However the screen is bigger while the phone is smaller. It apparently has a 60% greater dynamic range than the old iPhone X.



The iPhone XS Max is the same size with the iPhone 8 Plus but comes with an extra inch of display, 

Under the hood is an A12 Bionic Chip as the processor and you now have 512GB of built in storage. another improvement to the device


Camera Specifications



The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max comes with a 12MP wide-angle camera, and a 12MP telephoto camera, with an “improved True Tone flash”. On the front is a new 7MP selfie shooter.


There's also Smart HDR feature.This brings a few photos of different exposure together. The way it does that is by constantly shooting a four-frame buffer, with different exposures, so that the second you hit the shutter lens, it’s already got all the information it needs for a full HDR image. Thumbs up to Apple for this. We couldn't have asked for a better camera



For video, the camera can now record stereo sound, and takes very high-quality low-light footage. But no video stabilization yet, another place where  Some Android brands beat iOS once again.

Other Features

The iPhones XS and XS Max Ships with dual sim support, through something called “dual sim dual standby”. It doesn’t work with two real Sim cards, though – just with Apple’s eSim support for the second Sim. So I really can't say it will work in Nigeria.

iPhone XR Specifications Summary

The iPhone XR is made from aluminium and glass, and with an edge to edge screen similar to the iPhone X.

The display is an LCD, Display and branded as the “Liquid Retina” display (the iPhone XS and XS Max has a “super retina”, if you’re keeping track), and measuress 6.1 inches edge to edge.




However, phone doesn’t come with 3D Touch, the pressure-sensitive feature found in every previous iPhone since the 5S. Instead, it’s got “haptic feedback”, which basically means it will click if you hold your finger on a button for a while just like some old Android devices.

Inside is the same chip as in the iPhones XS: the A12. And the front camera is also the same 7MP camera.



It doesn't have 2 cameras like the iPhone XS and XS Max. I don't think it needs the telephoto lens for the fancy new features, because it can actually fake them by using just AI.

Battery life is “an hour and a half longer than the iPhone 8 Plus.

That said let me summarize this by rounding up the specs and price of the iPhone XS , iPhone XR  and iPhone XS Max in Nigeria, Kenya And India.
