Get ready for the biggest and fastest iPhone yet
Less than a year after the iPhone 8 and X were released, Apple introduced not one, not two, but three new iPhones at yesterday’s big keynote event. They are the iPhone XS (pronounced “ten-S,” not like “excess”), the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR.
Building on the iPhone X’s all-screen display and Face ID recognition system, the new phone models take those radical features to a whole new level. We’re talking a much larger display, with the iPhone XS Max boasting a grand 6.5 inches – yet speed isn’t compromised. Thanks to the 7-nanometer A12 Bionic chip installed in all three models, we’re getting the fastest and most durable iPhones yet.
At the keynote, Apple also introduced the Apple Watch Series 4, but we’re zeroing in on the iPhones today. So what features do the phones have, and how do they compare with one another? And when can we get our hands on them? Here are the essential things you need to know about the newest line-up of iPhones.
1. When will they be available?
First things first, let’s mark those release dates down, because you can start pre-ordering both XS models from tomorrow! That’s right; the iPhone XS and XS Max will be available for pre-order starting September 14, and will be out in stores starting September 21.
We’ll have to wait a little longer for the iPhone XR to arrive. Pre-order begins October 19, while they will be out in stores from October 26.
