Apple Is Releasing Its Largest iPhone to Date, the XS Max

16 September 2018

The new phones may be larger and faster and sparklier, but the new models will be even harder to slide into the pocket of your Levi's.

Apple vice president Phil Schiller, who made the announcements, said that the latest models were "a huge step forward for the future of the smartphone". The new iPhones will be in stores in a week, which means we've officially entered the risky twilight zone where a handful of misinformed (or desperate) people are going to buy an iPhone X for an eye-watering amount of money, either out of ignorance or need. You'll need to pay $999 for 64GB iPhone XS, and $1,349 for the top-tier 512GB version. The two devices use OLED, which was something that had been rumored for months.

The new iPhone models are powered by Apple's advanced A12 Bionic processor.

Apple - like Google, Samsung and other big tech companies - has lately been talking up a newfound interest in digital health and limiting excess screen time.

The iPhone XS Max's display size is 26 per cent larger than the previous largest iPhone display, marking it the largest increase in screen size since 2014, wrote analyst Gene Munster of Loup Ventures in a note.

The Sun reported that EKG technology can provide much more information than the standard heart rate monitor on the Apple Watch 3, because it uses electricity currents in order to determine the user's heart behaviour. As a contributor to Billionaire 365, Jackson mostly covers markets and trade.

For last year's iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, customers can spend up to Dh300 less.

Apple iPhone XS and iPhone XS are already up for pre-orders. The iPhone XR, on the other hands, is available in six different colors: black, white, yellow, red, blue, and coral color options.

As with the XS series, the XR will also have a dual-SIM setup on the iPhone but with a twist - you'll get a regular nano-SIM card slot along with a digital eSIM capability that we saw earlier on the Cellular version of the Apple Watch (only Airtel and Jio, for now).

This year's iPhone XS lasts 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X, so expect 12.5 to 13.5 hours. The iPhone SE was a nice hit by the company but it is over two years old.

Apple's new trio handsets - iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max - all feature the same 7MP selfie camera that powers the TrueDepth Camera System for Face ID.

The iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max have all the same features and capabilities, except for screen size, with the XS Max lording it over the XS. The XR has a 6.1-inch LCD Liquid Retina Display and the XS features 5.8-inch display.

So if you can somehow find and iPhone X for $500 this week, then sure, go for it.

The low price means that the XR does not come with some of the big features found on its big brothers. "Some people like the bigger phones".

The iPhone XR starts at $749 for 64 GB of storage, but can cost up to $899 for 256 GB of storage.
