New iPhone XS Features
Out with the old
No Home button on this device; technophobes need not worry, however – thanks to Face ID, it takes just a glance to unlock your phone or a gentle swipe up to access features. Don’t be married to your Home button! It’s quite easy to get down the gestures to be buttonless.
Designed for living
iPhone XS Max is rated IP86 for water resistance, meaning it’s water resistant up to 2 metres for 30 minutes and is sealed with a precision-fitted surgical-grade stainless steel band. The glass covering the screen is also highly resistant to scratches, so you can just get on with using the device as intended. You may not need a screen protector for this one!
The A12 Bionic chip is a six-core CPU powerhouse, which gives you fantastic performance as well as energy efficiency. With Apple’s next-generation Neural Engine, it uses real-time machine leaning to transform the way you use your apps.
Thanks to its improved 12-megapixel, wide-angle and telephoto cameras and faster sensor, your iPhone XS is even better at shooting photos and videos. Using Apple’s Image Signal Processor and the A12 chip’s Neural Engine, it unlocks new creative possibilities. Features include Smart HDR, bringing more highlight and shadow details to your photos; Bokeh background blur for standout portrait shots, and all-new Depth Control to adjust the depth of field after the photo has been taken. Additionally, you can shoot 4K video up to 60 frames per second (fps) and 1080p slow motion up to 240fps.
Designed to make your iPhone experience faster and more responsive, iOS 12 makes it faster to do everyday tasks – for example, swiping to the camera is up to 70% faster than previous iPhones, and the keyboard displays up to 50% faster than previous models. You can FaceTime with up to 32 people at once (hard to imagine, eh?), with tiles that automatically expand as people talk. There’s smarter ways to manage notifications and settings, intelligent shortcuts to pair your daily routine with the apps you use, and better privacy management when browsing the web.
