Apple's successor to the iPhone X is a beautifully made smartphone with many of the same features, including a 5.8-inch OLED screen, two memory options and Face ID. But many features set the iPhone XS apart from its predecessor, as does the other 2018 lineup of iPhones, which make it a worthy choice to upgrade to when you're in the market for a new mobile device.
Many rumors from last year have come true while some have fallen by the wayside. But overall, the specifications for the iPhone XS are a good step forward for Apple's smartphones. Plus, if you're into larger phones, you always have the iPhone XS Max to call on, and if you can not afford a device, the iPhone XR is still a step ahead of last year's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus , 1

The new iPhone XS was announced on September 12, 2018 at Apple's Fall Event, alongside the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. The iPhone XS and XS Max will be pre-ordered from September 15, 2018, from Apple, carriers, and big-box pre-orders, and will be available on the shelves for everyone on September 24, 2018. The XR comes later in October. 19659008] Release Date: 24.09.1988
Just like last year's iPhone X, the iPhone XS will have either 64GB or 256GB storage capacity, but it will also add a 512GB layer. And just like any other iPhone before, there will be no support for expandable storage like SD cards.
- Memory Available: 64 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB
- Expandable Memory: No
The new iPhone XS starts at $ 999 for the 64 GB Model, the 256 GB model for $ 1,149. The 512 GB model costs a whopping $ 1,349. Of course, you also have to pay taxes. You probably also want AppleCare +, and you'll have to take into account the carrier costs that you'll later pay in addition to your regular bill, such as upgrade fees.
- Price: $ 999 (64 GB), $ 1,149 (256 GB), or $ 1,349 (512 GB) plus tax
- AppleCare +: $ 199 (optional)
For For a 256GB iPhone XS, you'll need at least $ 100 in taxes you need to pay in addition to the $ 1,149 price. Then there is AppleCare + for $ 199. If you use the iPhone Upgrade program, only the taxes and the first month are due immediately.
When I bought the iPhone X over the iPhone upgrade program last year, the iPhone itself was $ 1,149, but I also had AppleCare + for $ 199. Also, the first month of the iPhone upgrade program was $ 56.16 and the tax was $ 101.11, both of which were due immediately, while the remainder was funded at zero percent. My carrier also brought me an upgrade fee of $ 30 later.
Just like the iPhone X, the iPhone XS has a "surgical grade" stainless steel metal frame with glass on the front and back of the device. The glass on the back helps with the wireless charging that Apple needs to get its unpublished AirPower charging station off the shelf when the time is right. There are also the XS in three color options: Space Gray, Silver and Gold.
- Frame: Stainless Steel
- Finish: Space Gray, Silver, Gold
The whole design is free of mercury, arsenic, brominated flame retardants, PVC and beryllium and contains recyclable stainless steel. It also has a low carbon process. While that sounds good to the body, we will not say anything about how Apple gets the materials needed to make an iPhone, nor how it's recycled later.
The dimensions of the iPhone XS are just like the iPhone X. So if you upgrade from X, your case will already work for the XS. As far as dust and water protection is concerned, it has an ingress protection rating of 6 for dirt, which means that it is completely dustproof, and 8 for liquids, which means it can hold up to 2 meters in water for up to Can be immersed for 30 minutes. Cellular connectivity supports the big four vendors, with smaller outfits like US Cellular and Cricket soon to follow.

While his bigger brother has a 6.5-inch screen, the iPhone XS has the same size as last year's iPhone X, which is 5.8 Inch is. But it does not have the same screen resolution as the iPhone X; Instead, the XS has 2436 x 1125 pixels, with a pixel density of 458 pixels per inch.
Of course, the XS, just like last year's iPhone X, has an OLED panel with a recess for the TrueDepth camera and the speaker. The only iPhone released in 2018 with an LCD panel is the iPhone XR, the cheaper 6.1-inch model of the three.
The screen-to-body ratio is likely to be an excellent 81.1% at an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9, a good ratio for watching widescreen movies. As for the rest of the details, its brightness can range from 2 to 625 nits, it has a refresh rate of 60 Hz for video, but 120 Hz for touch detection, it has a million-to-one contrast ratio and the color temperature could be like the X was 6,883 K. In addition, it has an oleophobic coating that protects the screen from fingerprints.
While rumors speculated that 3D Touch would be gone in these iPhone generations, the XS is actually equipped with 3D Touch on the display, which is pressure-sensitive gestures that are used to access quick actions for apps, display items and them to move to full view, to create thin or thick lines when drawing, depending on how much pressure you use, etc.

Unlike its predecessor, which only had 3GB of RAM, the XS has another gig for a total of 4GB. The chip in the unit is Apple's A12 Bionic, which has a 64-bit architecture (the new standard for iPhones). Last year's A11 Bionic also had an integrated M11 motion coprocessor that processed data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and other related sensors, but this time we did not see anything, though we suspect it's built-in. The Apple-developed CPU has six cores, and the GPU has four cores, and there's Apple's next-generation neural engine for machine learning.

Both lenses feature optical image stabilization for more focused hand shots, and a six-element lens for more accurate photos and a sapphire crystal cover for durability.
The flash is a "Quad LED True Tone Flash with Slow Sync" Designed to correct ambient lighting for more precise skin tones and to illuminate smoother backgrounds and fronts. And just like the front camera, you can shoot in portrait and portrait lighting mode with advanced bokeh and depth control, which allows you to adjust the depth of an image at a later time.
There's also a backside illumination sensor, a wide color capture for photos and live photos, exposure control, body and face detection, timer and burst modes, Smart HDR with improved local tonal correction, automatic image stabilization, and advanced red-eye Eye Detection
The rear view camera can record panoramas up to 63 MP in size, includes a hybrid infrared filter, uses noise reduction and supports geotagging. There are also live photos with stabilization and "Focus Pixels", the latter for autofocus and manual focus (by tapping).
And while it can capture RAW images, it can only be made with third-party apps, not the stock camera app. Otherwise, consider the standard PNG for screenshots and standard JPEG for photos as well as Apple's newer high-efficiency image file format.

The XS has all the standard sensors you would expect from a smartphone today.
In the US, GPS is included among other things for maps and navigation – an important component in "Location Services" in iOS, which also uses Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and cellular towers – while GLONASS, Galileo and QZSS for Russia, Europe or Japan there.
The accelerometer senses the movement and inclination of your device; This helps to rotate the screen orientation. There is also the three-axis gyroscope that "measures the speed at which [the] device rotates around a spatial axis," according to Apple. Together, these two sensors determine when the device is moving up / down, left / right, or forward / reverse, and how it rotates along its x, y, and z axes. These are necessary for many games and especially Augmented Reality.
The built-in proximity sensor detects when objects are near the screen, which is useful for turning off the display with the ear against the built-in speaker. Call or if your iPhone is hidden and the screen does not need to be activated at all ,
The magnetometer in the iPhone XS provides "measurements of the Earth's magnetic field relative to the device," said Apple. You can retrieve elevation data (as in the compass app) and measure barometric pressure. And the ambient light sensor detects how much light is available to adjust the screen brightness accordingly.
And to track your steps with the Health App to keep you fit, she has a pedometer. It may not be as accurate as pedometers on the Apple Watch or Fitbit Watches, but it works pretty well.
- Sensors: aGPS, Barometer, Accelerometer, Three-Axis Gyroscope, Proximity Sensor, Magnetometer, Barometer, Digital Compass, Pedometer
