Just like all the previous years, Apple announced the new generation iPhones this year on the 12th of September at the Steve Jobs Theater.The new generation iPhones are just bigger and better. At the moment Apple only launched two devices named iPhone XS and iPhone Xs MAX.
Let us leave the iphone Xs Max aside for a bit and look at the iphone XS that everyone has been talking about.
This year Apple has taken the OLED to a whole new level. With the Super Retina display, everything isn’t just bigger it is also better and brighter. The iPhone XS has a 5.8-inch custom OLED display with Super Retina that supports a resolution of 2436 x 1125. This means that you would be viewing 458 pixels per inch.
Apple introduced the all-screen design last year in the iPhone X and kept it in this year models as well. The 5.8’’ screen with an all-screen design makes everything bigger and beautifully canvases everything that we do on our new device.
The XS comes with a custom built OLED display. This means that the OLED panels installed in this year’s device offer an HDR display with the best colour accuracy in the industry, true blacks, and an incredible brightness and contrast.
You can experience the sharpest displays with the 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio on this device that offers the highest pixel density that Apple has ever introduced.
The iPhone XS is fitted with a durable glass that is vacuum-packed and precision-fitted with the surgical-grade stainless steel band that helps make it more water resistant. The device can resist the depth of 2 meters for 30 minutes. It also shows resistant to coffee, tea, soda, and other liquid spills.
Apple believes in privacy and it is one of their core principle .Hence the devices are designed in a way to keep all your personal information secure and private. Security can be an issue but Apple has made it simple with the advanced Face ID. Yes, your face is your password.
You can use the Advanced Face ID feature to unlock your phone, pay for stuff and log in into apps. Many of the critics might say that it is not authentic but the new iPhone XS uses the True Depth camera system and the Secure Enclave, and the Neural Engine. This makes the facial authentication secure, fast and accurate.
So there is no need to remember usernames and passcodes, or write them again and again.Just a quick look and you can log in to your social media accounts, banking systems other apps that you use on your iPhone. Everything is easier and better now.
The new iPhone XS is implanted with the A12 Bionic chip which is the smartest and the most powerful chip that you would find in a smartphone.
The A 12 processor is the first chip with a 7-nanometer design that is designed by Apple. The chip offers two processor cores and four efficiency cores.
The processor cores tackle the computational tasks and 15% faster than the A11 Bionic whereas the efficiency cores take on the everyday tasks and use 50% low power as compared to A11 Bionic.
Performance is the major focus of this year’s iPhone XS. The new Neural Engine is the future. It is incredibility fast and has the ability to perform a trillion operations in a mere second. It is capable to perform all new functions in the real time. If you think that A11 was fast then you won’t believe that the core ML of A12 runs 9x faster than the A 11.
The A12 was designed with the efficiency in mind so even when you put all the power into action, you will still have a great battery life. The intelligence and the processing ability of A12 are outstanding and are nothing compared to anything that we have ever seen.
This year you are going to enter into the new era of the dual camera system. Experience the dual 12MP rear camera with a ƒ/1.8 wide‑angle lens, ƒ/2.4 telephoto lens, Dual OIS optical image stabilization, and a 4K video up to 60 fps in the new iPhone XS.
On the other hand, the 7MP True Depth front camera is just one of the most amazing things about the iPhone XS.
The camera comes with a ƒ/2.2 wide angle lens that can be used to capture portrait and selfies or to create animoji or an emoji.
The camera also comes with the new video stabilization that allows 1080p HD videos up to fps. Explore the world with the new camera lens and get a clear and better view of your surroundings.
The price of the iPhone XS starts from $999. The price depends on the colour of the device which is; gold, space grey and silver, and the capacity offered by the device which in the case of iPhone XS is 64 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB.
