Appleyesterday,during the iphone annual event unveiled its updated lines of iPhones which comes in three models.
The first to be release among others is the,Iphone XR the device is slightly superior version of the bezel-less Smartphone Apple first released for $999 last year. And now, there’s an even larger version also released during the event known as the iPhone XS Max featuring an eye-popping 6.5-inch display, which is Apple’s largest device ever.
As the event unfold Apple Annouces the iPhone XR. One device that comes in six bright colors, including a Project RED version and a canary yellow one. It also has all of the same internal components as its pricier variants and a bezel-less display. But from a price standpoint, it’s designed to replace last year’s iPhone 8. The two big trade-offs you make are in the display quality — the XR has an LCD display instead of an OLED one — and in the camera, which is a single-lens system instead of the iPhone XS’s dual-lens system that was carried over from last year’s model.
The thing is Both the XS and XR involve some trade-offs and compromises, how easy will choice making be when going for these new devices.
Meanwhile looking at some cool features of these devices might help one in deciding on which to go for.
THE IPHONE XS ONLY COMES IN THREE STANDARD COLORS
This may be the most benign complaint to have about the XS and XS Max, but its three standard colors — gold, silver, and space grey — really feel muted and uninspired compared to the XR’s black, blue, coral, red, yellow, and white options
BEAUTIFUL OLED DISPLAY WITH A 6.5-INCH OPTION FOR DIE-HARD PHABLET FANS
The most important benefit of the iPhone XS and XS Max over the cheaper XR is its display, which is arguably the most impressive smartphone screen on the market. The XS has a 5.8-inch size, 2436 x 1125 resolution OLED display — the same as the original iPhone X — while the XS Max has a 6.5-inch, 2688 x 1242 resolution OLED display. Both devices feature a pixel density of 458 ppi.
This results in the brightest, sharpest, most color-accurate displays Apple has ever produced for its smartphone line. Apple also says the glass encasing the device is an improvement on last year’s model. If you’re a sucker for giant smartphone screens that truly look next-generation in quality, Apple’s XS and XS Max models are no-brainers.
COMPUTATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY TRICKS, THANKS TO THE A12 BIONIC CHIP
One of the best ways to justify buying one of Apple’s top-of-the-line iPhone models is the advancements the company achieves in mobile photography. In the case of the iPhone XS and XS Max, you’re getting a couple new features that really take advantage of the interplay between Apple’s software and its new A12 Bionic chip, which helps with onboard processing for tasks that make use of machine learning and other artificial intelligence-powered software.
The new XS and XS Max have a number of subtle additions that aren’t notable enough to break out as “best” features, including dual SIM support, stereo sound, and a 512GB storage option, to name the most prominent. But one feature that separates the XS from last year’s X and from the new XR is the IP68 rated water, splash, and dust resistance.
It’s one step up from the IP67 rating of the original iPhone X, and it means that you can accidentally submerge your XS or XS Max in up to seven feet of water for as long as 30 minutes. That’s twice the depth that the IP67 rating allows. So if you’re prone to dropping your iPhone into, say, a swimming pool or lake instead of just a toilet or bathtub, the XS is a big improvement in the not-needing-a-replacement-device department.
The iPhone XS and XS Max push Apple even further into the luxury, exorbitant consumer electronics territory. Although the base model iPhone XS remains at $999 before tax, a storage upgrade from 64GB to 256GB — because there is no 128GB model — puts you at $1,150 before tax. The 512GB model is a staggering $1,350.
The XS Max’s price is a bit more understandable, considering its larger display. It starts at $1,099 and goes all the way up to $1,449 for a 512GB model. That’s the priciest iPhone that Apple has ever made. And the fact that it costs more than a base-model MacBook Pro is bound to push the XS Max far beyond the realm of possibility for your average smartphone buyer.
THE IPHONE XS AND XS MAX AREN’T THAT MUCH BETTER THAN THE XR
The iPhone X was Apple’s biggest deviation from its fall smartphone refresh strategy in years, in that it gave people with the desire and cash to spare an obvious and visibly superior alternative to the standard iPhone design we became accustomed to. You got the first OLED display on an iPhone in addition to an edge-to-edge design and Face ID.
With the iPhone XS and XS Max, you’re not really getting devices that are all that much better than Apple’s cheaper XR variant. The XR has the same A12 Bionic processor, the same front-facing camera with Face ID and Animoji, and the same bezel-less design. The rear-facing camera doesn’t have the dual-lens system that the original X and the new XS and XS Max have. But it can still perform many of the same Portrait Mode shots and other computational photography tricks, like adjustable aperture to intensify or dampen artificial bokeh effects, thanks to camera software advancements.
