Apple iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max Pre-Orders Are Now Live

Apple Watch Series 1

Apple just announced three new iPhones this week: the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR.

Getting rid of the headphone jack also allows newer iPhones to be thinner by a few millimeters.

What can you do with all that handsome iPhone Xs Max screen? (For a while, we used the icky word "phablet"- for part-phone part-tablet - to describe them.) But now Apple's largest bests even Samsung's Note 9, which measures 6.4 inches. But that may not be negative considering lots of new smartphones and Android ones have embraced the cutout display.

Recently, Apple sent out a new support document to retail stores, as well as Authorized Service Providers, which outlines an update fix process for iPhone X users experiencing issues with FaceID. Walmart is now finally offering an iPhone Xs deal. When the user presses the shutter button, the neural engine runs a code that is programmed to quickly identify the kind of scene being photographed, and distinguish a person from the background been photographed and this information is input into the iPhone camera's portrait mode.

But now Apple thinks its about time people move on.

The iPhone XR apparently have a lower overall display pixel resolution than that of the iPhone 8 Plus at 1920 x 1080 compared to 1792 x 828, respectively. That is a full three-inches larger than the display found on the original iPhone. Both the devices also support 3D Touch, Dolby Vision, and HDR10 playback. At the launch event of the new iPhones, Apple did not confirm on their RAM capacities. This unfortunate development is a shame as the iPhone SE2 could have been one of the best smartphone releases of the company, according to Tech Crunch. Based on 7nm process, Apple A12 processor promises better CPU performance.

But given the following Apple has enjoyed throughout the years, it won't be surprising if its fans won't mind to pay the price. The rear camera? Yes, it seems that the dual-lens camera at the back is somehow linked to the Face ID functionality. Up front there's a 7-megapixel RGB camera with f/2.2 aperture. Apple also finally fixed the messy notifications with the new iOS 12 by introducing grouped notifications.

Likewise, Forbes' Gordon Kelly wrote a detailed head-to-head comparison of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, but advised consumers to buy the iPhone XR, as the device "delivers all the key features" of its higher-end counterparts at a considerably lower price. Though the XR is cheaper, it does have a larger screen: 6.1 inches to the XS's 5.8 inches. It starts at $749 with pre-orders going live on October 19 and shipping from October 26.

Last year's iPhone X could last about 12 to 13 hours on a single charge.

On Wednesday, the company announced its most expensive iPhone ever, the iPhone XS Max, which starts at $1,099 and can cost up to $1,449 for the model with the most memory.

Pre-orders start September 21 and shipping starts September 28.
