The new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR, Apple’s 2018 devices

Apple’s line up of 2018 devices are officially out and boy did we get a lot. We now have the most expensive iPhone yet, we have a new device that seeks to bridge the gap between Apple’s yesteryears tech and the new iPhone X design and one that seems to be as iterative to last year’s iPhone X as iterative can be.

At the event, Apple went into details on the improvements implemented in the new Apple Watch Series 4 and a detailed post on that can be found here. Here is a low down of the three iPhones launched at the #AppleEvent; the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR.

iPhone XS and XS Max

By far, the most anticipated announcements of the whole event was the launch of these two devices. Leaks and rumors had been going around for a while and the actual reveal wasn’t all that different from what we were expecting. Also seeing as this is an S-upgrade, things were bound to be a little more tamed and reserved.

Both devices have the same internals with the iPhone XS Max being quite a bit bigger than the iPhone XS, kinda like the iPhones and the iPhone Plus. The iPhone XS Max is bigger than the Note 9, and both it and the iPhone XS get a makeover inside and out. Apple’s high-end iPhones have dual 12-megapixel cameras, OLED displays, and faster A12 Bionic chips.
