Apple iPhone XS and XS Max

Share

After the iPhone XS was unveiled with little new, Huawei tweeted "Thank you for letting us be the real hero of the year", a tease for their upcoming Mate 20 Pro unveiling next month. Thanks to TENAA, we know that the iPhone X's battery had a fairly small 2716 mAh capacity spread across two cells.

The XS packs a 10.13 Wh battery (2,659 mAh at 3.81 V), weighing 39.5 g-slightly downgraded from last year's X. But this decrease in capacity comes with a wild new battery configuration.

With eight cores in the A12's neural processing unit (over its predecessor's two), the iPhone XS is theoretically capable of 5 trillion operations per second compared to the iPhone X's 600 billion operations per second, Apple claims.

The company's 2018 lineup, specifically the iPhone XS and XS Max, delivers on that promise: They're the smartest, fastest, best iPhones we've seen to date. The BoostUp Wireless Charging Dock has "optimized wireless charging" up to 7.5W for one iPhone and 5W/1A for Apple Watch. The new AppleCare+ warranty program for the XS and XS Max replaces stolen iPhones for up to 2 incidents with deductibles ranging from $229 to $269. That's good for consumers, as Apple is notorious for not clearly listing the iPhone's specifications anywhere in their own literature.

Droves of iPhone fans queued outside the company's United Kingdom flagship Regent Street store on Friday morning, hoping to be among the first to get their hands on the iPhone XS and XS Max (which we reviewed earlier this week).

To cater for the Chinese market, Apple has offered a dual SIM card feature, of particular benefit to mainland users who often subscribe to more than one carrier.

In a clever marketing strategy, representatives clad in Huawei t-shirts handed out the powerbanks to those in the queue at Apple's flagship Orchard Road store. What do you think Huawei is trying to tell Apple? This year you can get the XS and XS Max in 64, 256 or 512GB storage variants.

Long story short: One iPhone XS Max survived being in a bowl of fresh water for 30 minutes with no visible damage.

This is essentially the "Plus" version of the iPhone XS. It's a big reason why Apple can justify the higher price tags.
