Apple launches the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
14 September, 2018, 22:12
The phones are updates to last year's iPhone X ("10"), which marks the 10th anniversary of the smartphone - stretching the screen while keeping the overall handset size at or near that of previous models. The prices are relatively lesser than iPhone XS and iPhone XS which are available at starting price of Rs 99,900 and Rs 1,09,900.
These upgrades apply to the front cameratoo, so your selfies can look like they were taken by a professional photographer. It basically stuck with the same design from 2014's iPhone 6 models to last year's iPhone 8. The XS and XS Max have stainless steel sides, while the XR's aluminium railings aren't as sturdy or dense and it doesn't feel as premium. Both the variants are powered by Apple's latest A12 Bionic SoC, which is touted to be one of the first with a 7nm processor.
The new device offers numerous high-end features of last year's iPhone X and this year's XS with a price that's in line with that of the iPhone 8 and older models.
For comparison, the phone itself stands at a similar size to the iPhone 8 Plus, which houses a 5.5-inch screen.
Tech analyst Patrick O'Rourke joined in, tweeting: 'I want to go on the record now as saying that iPhone Xs Max is a bad name for a smartphone...'
In terms of device construction, the iPhone XR boasts "aerospace-grade" aluminum with glass backing, allowing for full wireless charging functionality. The 512GB version of the iPhone XS will be around €1,200. (I couldn't test it because it wasn't activated on the phones in the demo room.) In general, our carriers have banned dual-SIM phones in the past; the most successful so far have been OnePlus phones, which haven't been sold through carriers.

With edge-to-edge displays, improved water resistance, and a camera that can 'carry out a trillion operations on every photo, ' Apple's latest iPhone line-up may be its most impressive yet. But that's about R4,000 less than the starting price for the XS, and XR comes with a bigger screen.
To be sure, the XR doesn't have all of the bells and whistles in the XS. Research has shown that people who use phones with displays larger than 6 inches buy more apps, consume more media, and play more games.
It's an engineering marvel that Apple's been able to pack in so much screen, so many sensors and so much processing power into such a small space.
