Apple iPhone XS Max

Apple iPhone XS Max REVIEWS NEW FEATURES SPECS PROS CONS When Apple introduced the iPhone X last year, it didn’t just release a new phone – it presented a new vision of what iPhones should be. The fact that the X became Apple’s top-selling model quarter after quarter was proof that people were embracing change. Now, with the arrival of the new iPhone XS and XS Max, Apple’s vision feels almost inescapable.

These new XS models represent Apple at the top of its hardware game, and if you buy either of them, you probably won’t need to upgrade for quite a while. They’re that good. The bigger question here is whether the iPhone XS and XS Max are must-own devices, and that’s where things get complicated.

Summary

Last year’s iPhone X defined a new kind of normal for Apple’s smartphone fans. This year’s iPhone XS, meanwhile, is all about balancing polish and progress. The XS uses the same thoughtfully updated iOS 12 as the iPhone X and their physical designs are basically identical, but a more powerful chip set and much-needed camera improvements make the XS a solid step forward.

If you’re itching for a new iPhone and can justify the hefty cost, the XS is the safe choice — but you should probably wait to see what the forthcoming iPhone XR has to offer.
