IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression

IPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression

With the launch of the new iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple has reduced the price of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 7 models by £100. The new range now comes with a fullscreen display and FaceID as standard - this was introduced by the trendsetting iPhone X previous year. You should also know that Geekbench scores are to be taken with a pinch of salt for now so we'll update you guys if these scores remain constant once the latest iPhones have officially been released by Apple. However, the iPhone SE - Apple's only offering with a compact 4-inch display, also failed to make the cut to 2018 range.

The iPhone Xs Max (iPhone 11,6) impresses even further in Geekbench tests, thanks to that extra gigabyte of RAM.

Apple's removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack has been considered a controversial and user-hostile decision beginning with the iPhone 7, so it's no surprise the latest devices are also missing the port.

For the very first time, Apple has incorporated the most-asked feature in the iPhones.

Unlike the United States market, where the iPhone X was entirely discontinued, the Indian variant of the iPhone X will also get a price cut like its older siblings.

Apple has introduced plenty of variety for those who are choosy with the colors. You name it, you get it. It is 12 percent more faster and 40% more efficient having 4 efficiency cores with upto 50 percent lower power.

The Neural Engine is once again the highlight that offers real-time machine learning for the camera app and for augmented reality apps.

Based on Apple's listings, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is priced at RM2199 and RM2749 respectively while the generation after that, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is valued at RM2899 and RM3299 respectively.

The newest iPhones will result in no major change in sales volumes in the mature smartphone market, SMBC Nikko analysts wrote in a report following Apple's presentation.

They can reach a new level of up to 2 meters under water for 30 minutes, and are also protected against everyday spills including coffee, juice and soda. You can learn the A to Z of the new OS in our dedicated hub for iOS 12. It has an LCD screen instead of OLED and has a single camera instead of a dual camera. You're out of luck, at least if you want one straight from Apple. The new 12MP wide-angle and telephoto sensors come together with a new image signal processor in the A12 Bionic and the upgraded neural engine.

Finally, TechRadar's Gareth Beavis states that, despite not being able to test the potency of the iPhone XR's battery, which remains an unknown quantity in terms of mAh, he believes "there are a few good reasons to think that the iPhone XR could have better battery life than expected".

The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max go on sale September 21.

Pre-orders for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are going to be live tomorrow, but what we have is an early glimpse of how thee devices might perform when they are officially released by the company.
